I was selected by GlamSense to test the Lise Watier Hydraforce moisturizer. I received the normal to dry skin formula. It retails for approximately $45 Canadian.
Skin Care Claims
According to the Lise Watier website the product claims to leave skin fortified and protected, soft, smooth and radiant. The formula's effectiveness is due to the power of the Gaspé Algae Extract. This extract guarantees that the skin is left hydrated.
It also claims that instrumental measurements prove the skin is 3x more hydrated. Furthermore, 100% of women confirm that skin is more hydrated, soft and protected against outdoor aggressions. (Source: https://hydraforce.lisewatier.com/en/)
The moisturizer is packaged in a 45ml jar. I would prefer if this product was in a tube as it would make application easier and cleaner.
The product is a creamy consistency. To me it has a pleasant floral scent but it is not overpowering at all. The cream absorbs fairly quickly and I find a little bit goes a long way. If you use too much it will take too long to absorb and leave a bit of a sticky residue.
Along with the moisturizer was a device called a hydration tool that connects to your smart device. You can then download for free the Hydra-Detect app. The hydration tool measures how hydrated your skin is. Pretty neat!
You place the hydration tool on whatever area of skin you want to test. You can choose to test you hand, t-zone or cheek. I chose to test my cheek as that is where I would be using the moisturizer most.
I washed my face first thing in the morning and then tested the moisture level. It was 30.4% which is a little dry. I then applied the HydraForce moisturizer to my face and retested. This time I got a result of 44.4%. So the moisturizer really did hydrate my skin to an appropriate level.
Results after 14 days
After 14 days of using the moisturizer I wanted to see if my skin was more hydrated even before applying the moisturizer. I tested my cheek again before putting on the moisturizer and got a result of 39.8% which is higher than the initial reading of 30.4%. So my hydration levels went up even without having the moisturizer on.
After applying the moisturizer, I got a result of 47.9% which is higher than the initial result of 44.4%. So the results prove that this moisturizer really hydrates and more so with continued use.
I really liked this moisturizer more than I thought I would. I consider myself to have oily skin but the initial results showed my skin was a little dry. So I guess even oily skin needs moisturizer.
I also have really acne prone skin and I'm pleased to say that during the two weeks of testing this product that I didn't get one breakout! My skin was incredibly soft and smooth to the touch and looked more radiant. Overall, this is a great moisturizer and I'm so pleased with the results I got.
