Lancome Hydra Zen Day & Night Cream Review

My friend Rose and I love exchanging daily emails chatting about all things skincare. We give one another the heads up about forthcoming releases, swap tips and even more fun is the packages we send one another filled with products that haven't worked for ourselves but the other may benefit from due to our different skin types.

In a recent package from Rose was the 15ml tubs of Lancomes Hydra Zen Neurocalm day and night creams which didn't provide enough moisture for her skin. Initially I was put off by their rose scent and my first trial using the day cream was that it was a little too heavy for my skin. That all changed as the weather god colder, the central heating was ramped up and my combination skin started to veer towards the drier spectrum. I'd also started using Make Up Forever's HD Foundation which clung to the slightest dry patch so I hoped that Lancome Hydra Zen would help me out.

I'm so pleased I gave this duo another try as they worked perfectly for me, aided my foundation application and skin was definitely improved against the environmental and emotional stresses over the Christmas period. 

And the rose scent I didn't like at first, well I grew to love it, especially in the evenings when applying the night cream and you'll see in the forthcoming empties post both pots have now be used up in their entirety. 

If you're looking for a day and night duo that will live you with soft radiant skin this is definitely a range to explore. Now it's time for more Lancome recommendations, do you have any for me?

  1. I don't know why but for some reason I'm rarely tempted by Lancome products. I do like to have matching day and night creams and this does sound lovely and soothing so I'll make a real effort of trying more from Lancome :o) Xx

    1. I'm exactly the same with Lancome it's just a range I never go to but so glad I had this introduction.

  2. I can honestly say I've never tried Lancome beauty products before, apart from a moisturising body cream that came in a perfume set a few years ago. If I had a different skin type (and not oily/spot prone skin), I'd probably consider it, these do sound lovely! xx

  3. I always love hearing about new skin care. Although in this case they probably won't work all too well for my oily skin, oh well. I know it's not Lancome but Lush's Tea Tree Toner Water is what has helped save me from patchy dry skin so I definitely recommend it. Lovely review :)
