So the third product in the ‘Hedonista brand series’ is going to be a moisturizer. I have already reviewed Hedonista Strawberry & Dessicated Coconut Fresh Face Scrub and Hedonista Chocolate & Rhassoul Clay Face Souffle in my previous posts. You can check them in the above links. Hedonista products are free from Parabens, Sulphates, Silicones, Artificial colourants or fragrance, Palm oil, Petroleum derivatives, Phthalates, Amines, PEGs and Formaldehyde. Also the preservatives used are food-grade. And they are a cruelty-free brand. So now let’s straight away jump into the review of Hedonista Clear Moisturiser.
For a face that glimmers.
A lightweight, quick-absorbing, hydrating gel moisturiser for humid months and oily skin.
Handmade & all natural: High-quality ingredients for indulgent rituals.
Aqua, Vegetable glycerin, Carbomer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, L Arginine, Lavender oil, Vanilla extract
Rs.525 for 50ml
Hedonista Clear Moisturiser comes in a tinted plastic bottle with beautiful designs and logo on it. On opening the cap, there is a stopper along with a small hole which is covered by a cap. The packaging is definitely compact and travel-friendly.
Hedonista Clear Moisturiser is transparent and has a very thin gel-like watery consistency. The scent is very pleasant and soothing – a mix of vanilla and lavender. It is not strong or bothering. In fact, it feels very luxurious and I love applying it just for the smell.
Hedonista Clear Moisturiser is a boon for oily, sensitive skin people. It doesn’t contain any oils or creams. It is glycerin-based and feels very light on the skin. After applying, it gets absorbed quickly without any greasiness. You can immediately feel a cooling and calming sensation on the skin. It hydrates the skin beautifully and makes skin smooth, soft and supple. My face does not become oily after sometime as is the case with other moisturisers. It doesn’t cause any breakouts either.
Since I work in an A/C environment the whole day, my skin becomes very dry. In those times, I feel this moisturizer is not enough. So I apply a facial oil underneath this. But otherwise this will suit all skin types.
Price is a bit on the higher side. But this bottle lasted me for around 2.5 months when used once a day in the morning.
I like the fact that it contains Vegetable glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate both of which are very good for hydrating and plumping the skin. They help to retain the water content in our skin. Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Benzoate are the only two preservatives, both of which are food grade. L-Arginine is an amino-acid which is rich in anti-oxidants and also helps in anti-aging as it assists in collagen production. Carbomer helps to keep the emulsion stable. Vanilla extract has anti-inflammatory properties which help in healing damaged skin. And we all know the benefits of lavender oil. I don’t find any harmful ingredients in the list, so it is totally 5/5.
Does it satisfy all its claims?
Yes, it satisfies all its claims.
What I like?
* Light, water-like texture.
* Gets absorbed easily without leaving behind any oiliness.
* Very pleasant and soothing natural fragrance.
* Cools and calms down skin.
* Doesn’t cause any breakouts.
* Hydrates skin well due to presence of Vegetable glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate.
* Best for oily and acne-prone skin and humid climate.
* Nice, travel-friendly packaging.
* Free from parabens and silicones.
What I don’t like?
Would I recommend?
Yes, definitely. Especially for oily, acne-prone skin and humid climate. Other skin types can also use it by using a facial oil underneath.
Would I repurchase?
Not right now. But sometime later.
Value for money?
A bit pricey. But considering its free from parabens, silicones and other harmful chemicals, I think its worth it.
IBeautySpy Rating: 5/5
Overall, Hedonista Clear Moisturiser – Brave The Day With Glycerin & Lavender-Vanilla is a light-weight yet hydrating moisturizer with minimal, effective ingredients. If you look at the big, big ingredients list of drugstore brands filled with so many chemicals and feel its not for you, then you can surely give this a try.
