L'Oreal Paris Ideal Moisture Normal Skin Day Lotion SPF 25 Review

by Lavanya T R

When I first heard of this product, I loved the idea of combining day lotion with SPF. I had seen that they cater to different kinds of skin like normal skin, oily skin and combination skin. I have a normal skin and I went in for the L'oreal Paris Ideal Moisture Normal Skin Day Lotion SPF 25. The 48 hour hydration thing was something I wanted to try and find out.

My Experience With L'Oreal Paris Ideal Moisture Normal Skin Day Lotion SPF 25:

L'Oreal Paris Ideal Moisture Day Lotion is one product I wanted to try since long. I have heard some very good reviews of this product and that made me buy it. The packing of the product is quite attractive like any other L'oreal Paris products.

The lotion is soft & smooth and easy to apply. The smell is very mild and pleasant. It is slightly oily and has a sticky finish initially. So, it is best that oily skin people stay away from this. I have a normal skin and though it was oily when applied, it did get absorbed in the skin leaving it soft.

It also provides perfect hydration to the skin and makes the skin softer and cleaner than before. The sunscreen works great as it helped me during my day out at the beach. It has UVA/UVB protection and contains vitamin E which is good for the skin.
When I saw the quantity, I thought it will be over pretty soon. But I was wrong. It does last for a long time as we require a small quantity to apply.

Overall, I think this product suits best for day-to-day use for people with normal skin.

Pros Of L'Oreal Paris Ideal Moisture Normal Skin Day Lotion SPF 25:
  • Very little amount is sufficient for the face and neck
  • The entire list of active and inactive ingredients are present
  • Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 25 Protection
  • Mild and pleasant smell
  • Makes the skin soft
  • Contains Vitamin E which is good for skin
  • It provides decent hydration to the skin
  • The sunscreen works well for the skin

Cons Of L'Oreal Paris Ideal Moisture Normal Skin Day Lotion SPF 25:
  • The lotion is slightly oily so it is ideal only for normal skin
  • Though it provides good hydration I do not think it lasts for 48 hours
