Product Review: L'Oréal Paris Hydra Energetic Quenching Gel – by Guest Blogger

As I mentioned last week, my hubby, Mr. Beauty & Lifestyle Hunter (Mr. BLH) has always cared about his skin and appearances, so he is always a little jealous when I get new products to trial, so he was happy when I asked him if he wanted to trial some new male skin care products, even with the one requirement that he had to write the review himself. Although he does blog, he is not exactly usually writing beauty reviews, but about cars (check out his blog here). Anyway, here are Mr. BLH’s thoughts on the *L'Oréal Paris Hydra Energetic Quenching Gel;

What They Say:
"L’Oréal Paris Men Expert Hydra Energetic Quenching Gel is a refreshing gel that’s lightweight and invisible on the skin. Air-Gel Technology and mineral-rich sea water with oil-neutralising active ingredients offer 24-hour hydration that is anti-oil, anti-sweat and anti-shine. The blue gel offers an instant ice burst effect on the skin so it feels fresher and more awake."

RRP: $15.85 (50ml) – Available from Priceline, Pharmacies, Department Stores and Variety Stores.

What Mr. BLH Says:
I am starting to feel I should call myself the Guinea Pig, I guess it is better than being a crash test dummy!
My wife has asked me to try another moisturiser for her and this time it is one I am quite used to. I have used the Men Expert Vita Lift for quite a while, I like it and it has always worked. I have always preferred a cream over a gel, maybe it is my age but I have always felt a cream covers better and rubs in well and leaves no gloss look to my face when done. It also highlights anti ageing which I have to say I am now on the wrong side of 40.

So it was with some curiosity that I tried the Hydra Energetic Quenching Gel (no shine). I like the packaging and that once you get the gel pumping through it flows well and again I know from experience there is no wastage at the end as the design of the bottle draws every ounce out.

First impressions were I liked the smell, it is not over powering but does have a slight masculine hint to it, I wear an aftershave daily so I do not want clashing smells.

The feel of the gel is refreshing, it does feel nice on the skin especially after shaving, I also found it covers well and does absorb into the skin easily. I found that I had no dryness to my skin at all and it did hang in for a day’s work, leaving my skin shine-free, even with the temperatures increasing now we’re heading towards summer.

Overall I would not hesitate to use this again, it may even replace my cream in the cupboard, especially now summer is almost here, and it is nice to start off the day feeling refreshed.

So there you have it, another beauty review from Mr. BLH! How did he go? Would you like to see more reviews for male skincare? Does your hubby use skincare products… or maybe he pinches yours?
