L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Honey Day Cream: As skin matures, it loses its ability to retain moisture. If you find that’s the case with your own complexion, it’s time to envelop your skin with instant hydration to avoid that super tight and uncomfortable feeling. This nourishing day cream is formulated with nurturing oils, manuka honey extract, calcium, and antioxidants. The creamy formula envelops the skin with a soft, silky layer of comfort to replenish it with long-lasting, non-greasy, non-sticky hydration.

With its rich formula, the day cream is able to effectively penetrate the skin’s surface layer to restore comfort and moisture to mature, very dry skin. The result? Skin that’s firmer, feels supple and elastic, and has a healthy glow. Bonus: In addition to the hydrating benefits we mentioned above, this day cream is paraben-free, allergy-tested, and safe for sensitive skin. Need we say more?

How to use it: Every morning, apply onto cleansed skin. First, rub the formula between your fingers. Smooth gently onto your face in an upward and outward motion. Then, smooth from your neck to jawline, then upper chest until thoroughly absorbed.
