Lavera Hydro Sensation Gel Reviews

The packaging looked fresh and light, with colours and graphics that represented the type of product well. The recycled cardboard box and the 73% recycled pot reflect the brand’s eco credentials. There is a lot of information on the box but it is clear and easy to understand. It gives me all the relevant details about what to expect from the product as well as where to use it in my skincare routine. The brand’s commitment to animal and environmental protection is explained in detail. The pot is classic in design and quite minimalist. The concept of a hydrating, moisturising day cream that is both dermatologically effective and ethically created appeals to me very much as I want skincare that works but I am conscious of the environmental impact of the beauty industry so this would be like me having my beauty cake and eating it!  The usage instructions on the box are simply explained and also indicate at which step in my skincare routine I should apply it. When using for the first time, I found the foil seal on top of the pot tricky to remove as there wasn’t a tab to grip to pull it off, and using an implement to remove it was a little messy. After that, though, the product was extremely easy to use and apply. In the pot, the cream looks quite thick but it’s actually really light and non-greasy to apply and absorbs reasonably quickly with no visible residue but I do have to wait a little while before applying makeup afterwards or my foundation slides a little. My skin feels velvety soft and smooth after using, as well as being really supple to the touch. Lavera Hydro Sensation Gel Cream hydrates and moisturises well, making my skin look fresh and awake without looking shiny. It gave me a dewy, velvety complexion rather than a youthful glow so, while I didn’t get the results expected I wasn’t overly disappointed. My skin didn’t look noticeably plumper and there wasn’t a visible improvement in fine lines over the period of using the product, despite it containing algae and hyaluronic acids which are effective ingredients when aiming for those type of results. I like the subtle aroma of the gel cream. It is subtle, and smells fresh and natural. It matches the brand and the product very well. I have normal skin and I felt the texture of the gel cream and how it applied works well with my skin. I incorporated it into my daily morning skincare routine, after cleansing, using a moisturising spray or essence,  and serum as directed. The dewy, fresh appearance was visible from the first use, as was the benefits to the feel of my skin but I didn’t notice a visible improvement to fine lines and wrinkles. It is important that I can trust the products I use on my skin to be safe and non-toxic, and I like that Lavera are passionate about using only natural organic ingredients with traceability (and no microplastics or artificial colours and preservatives) to benefit the environment as well as my skin. I loved the  light, silky, water fresh texture of the gel cream is beautiful and I like the dewy, refreshed complexion it gives me, and the brand ethos is inspiring. It is an effective moisturiser and really refreshing to use. It uses proven ingredients but I didn’t get the plumped, radiant skin I hoped for. It is reasonably priced considering the natural, organic ingredients used, being more affordable than some other ethical brands. I would consider buying it as it is a good daily moisturiser and it is an ethical product. I would recommend this to family and friends who want gentle, natural skincare at an affordable price. Overall, it is a good product which was lovely to use and has a sound sustainability commitment. It has a fair price point and uses good quality ingredients. I would have liked to have seen even a slight reduction in fine lines over the period of using it. The foil seal needs a tab to make opening it less messy. Really pleased to have been able to discover an interesting, ethical brand I hadn’t been aware of before and I will be looking into other products from Lavera to see if they might be worth trying. It was really easy to incorporate this into my daily routine and I loved how fresh and light it felt on my face, as well as the dewy, hydrated results. The product fits the brand ethos very well, from the packaging to the ingredients list and helps me look good while doing good for the protection of animals and the environment. Elaine Cowie

I was excited to try it. Looks high end and more expensive than my usual moisturiser. Love that it is natural, vegan and good for the environment. Hydro sensation describes it well as it does feel very hydrating. Instructions very simple, you don’t have to have all of the products in a range to follow the instructions, I sometimes feel alienated if a products instructions mention all of the other products in the range. This is really straight forward, clean your skin and put it on! very easy to use. Easy to massage into skin and feels lovely. Feels very moisturising, instantly, doesn’t take a huge amount of time to soak in, can apply make up after a couple of minutes. Definitely makes my skin feel soft and supple. Very smooth when applying it as it is gel-like. I agree that it moisturised my skin, I’ve really enjoyed using it each day and I actually feel like my skin has been less spotty than usual. My skin feels dewy afterwards which makes me feel youthful. At first I must admit I didn’t like the smell, it reminded me of Ouzo, and I got an alcohol like aroma. However, after using it daily I now think it smells more like a peach yoghurt, and I do like the smell of it. My skin can be quite oily. I used this every day after washing my face. I would say it took about a week of use before I noticed and improvement in my skin. I wouldn’t want to be putting a load of chemicals on my face, so yes being organic and natural would play a part in choosing my cream. I loved the smooth feeling of it as you’re rubbing it in. It’s different to anything I’ve used before. the cardboard box let’s it down a tiny bit as it looks a little cheap, however learning that it’s made from recycled materials etc makes it clear why. And I love that about it. I’ve never bought a face cream at that price before but I don’t think i would be disappointed with this one.  For me although this worked I would find it too expensive as I would usually spend around £5 on a pot of face cream. I would recommend as it is a nice product, makes you feel good and did improve my skin. Really enjoyed using this product. I have found that my hormonal spots have improved with this product, I didn’t expect this to happen. I have asked my husband to use it and he really liked the feel of the gel. I think that is the best feature. It’s really refreshing to see claims of a climate neutral company on the box as this is becoming more and more important and should be something people should look for in a product. Make more of being climate neutral on the packaging! Emma Cole

Ok, it looked a bit like the moisturiser that I buy from the supermarket. For the price, I would’ve expected slightly more luxurious packaging. Great. I really like the fact that it is vegan and lightweight. would be nice to have a bit more info about how to apply – circular motion / attention to wrinkles/dry patches? This was very easy to use and absorbed into the skin well. my skin felt lovely after use. This was a really lovely moisturiser. unfortunately I didn’t notice a plumping effect or a youthful glow. I would prefer a more subtle aroma, I found it a bit strong. I actually have combination skin. I used this most mornings and evenings since receiving the item. From the first time using this my skin immediately felt softer and smoother. I think it is better for the environment and better for my skin as no chemicals are used. I liked the way it made my skin feel. the actual gel is very nice but the packaging could be better – I think a glass jar would make this product seem high end. I would hope for more visible results for the price of the product. My skin felt very soft but I didn’t experience the plumping/youthful effect that the product boasts. I would buy this product if it were cheaper around £8. I don’t’ feel that it was different to other high street brand moisturisers but I do like the ethics behind it so might recommend to friends who are looking for vegan/organic products. A nice moisturiser but I hoped for more visible effects. Emily Lock
