Final Verdict:

Okay I love Loreal Cosmetics products but because of my skin type had stayed away from their skin care products.These summers are really worse for oily-acne prone skin types.I am not applying anything except sunscreen these days because if I apply another product skin becomes horribly oily in few minutes.I would skip sunscreen if I could,but unfortunately can't.For a while I have been hunting mattifying and oil-free products.So I was looking for oil-free moisturiser when I bumped into this Loreal Hydrafresh Anti-shine Icy gel meant for oily/combination skin.It is non-comedogenic,oil-free,gel based product,mattifying-what more can a oily skin folks ask for right:D!So I bought this,loving it so far.It is super light weight moisturiser and does not make my oily skin more oily,what a relief!Cost is not a issue for me cause I know finding a right product for my skin types is really hard.Overall worth the money,awesome product!

My Rating:4.5/5

Note:There is another variant from the same range for for Normal-Dry skin types in this range known as Loreal Hydrafresh All Day Hydration Supply Aqua Cream(Pink Jar) which you can buy here or here.
