Lancome Hydra Zen Neurocalm Fluid SPF30 50ml
This product lasts no time at all!
I've been a a user of Lancome products on and off for many years - I switched for a while because it was becoming quite expensive. I was lured back as this was "just the product" for me. I bought this for daytime and Nutrix for night. While I have most of the Nutrix left this is finished after only six weeks of using once a day. The cream is lovely but when you multiply the cost over the year it works out very expensively when you also add in the cost of night cream plus any serums you may be persuaded you need as well. I won't be going back to Lancome again.

Transformed my skin in just 2 days!!!
This little bottle of wonder has transformed my skin in just 2 days. I purchased on a bit of a whim after experiencing rather temperamental skin over the past few weeks. Sometimes dry, sometimes greasy, but mostly blotchy and uneven toned with breakouts every now and again. Not pleasant.
I'd previously used a couple of Lancome products, Soliel DNA Guard SPF30, which was a great product, then replaced with Genefique Soleil - which was OK. Both seemed to suit my skin and keep it healthy looking, so I thought this cream with SPF30 would be perfect, even though a little pricier.
The pump dispenser is great, very hygienic. Great to travel with too if you want to throw in your handbag - small and light bottle.
The cream itself is like white whipped cream. Very luxurious and smooth to apply. Doesn't have a recognisable scent, so that's good too. On first application is did exactly what it claimed to - CALM MY SKIN. My skin looked cool and calm and hydrated with no greasy look or feel.
The thing I did notice, was that if applied on top of certain creams it does have a tendency to leave a bit of a white residue which can rub off/slide, so leaves you looking like you have a dry skin condition.
Hydra zen cream is quite light and non greasy, but leaves skin perfectly hydrated. It can be a little dry if used on it's own, so I tend to use a regular face cream (or serum) first and apply this on top for perfect results. I've even been using in the evenings, and I wake to find really rested and calm looking skin which is smooth to the touch. It's positively LOVELY.
The reason I'm giving this a 4 star rating is due to the price and the fact that it can sometimes rub off. (Also stings if it gets in your eyes!).

I love this moisturiser! Goes on easily and gives your skin a lovely glow like you've had loads of sleep even if you haven't!
I have really sensitive skin so struggle to find products that don't upset my skin - this moisturiser soothes it!
Makes you makeup stay on even longer as well which is brilliant too. Is a little pricey but worth it particularly for warmer weather when you need a high spf.
