Lise Watier Hydraforce Hydra-Protective Creme-Gel Moisturizer #Review

I was so excited to get the opportunity to try out Lise Watier's Hydraforce Moisturizer thanks to Lise Watier and GlamSense. As most of my readers know I am a total skincare junkie and I love to test out new skincare products, and this is my first experience with any Lise Watier product!

I received a full size jar of Lise Watier's Hydraforce for normal to dry skin accompanied by an interesting little blue device (more on that in a moment).

This moisturizer is part of Lise Watier's new line of weatherproof moisturizers that is tested in extreme conditions, and proven to increase skins moisture levels 3X.

Info from Lise Watier's website:
The formula’s effectiveness lies on the remarkable power of Gaspé Algae Extract. A survivor of harsh environments, the Gaspé algae has developed a highly efficient resistance system, enabling it to thrive in severe conditions. Its extract guarantees the skin’s global hydration, transforming it into a veritable defensive shield.

My skin bio: My skin is combo/oily but dehydrated and acne prone, add in the fact that I'm aging and it's tough to find skincare that is hydrating enough but doesn't cause me to breakout.

The moisturizer has a refreshing scent, nothing overwhelming and it dissipates shortly after application.

The consistency is like a cream-gel hybrid and very refreshing on the skin.

I found that the cream sinks right into my skin without any greasy residue and a little really does go a long way. It also made a fantastic base for my makeup!

I should note, that although I like to layer my moisturizers with serums and oils (that's just the skincare junkie that I am), I did not need to with this moisturizer. It was hydrating enough on it's own!

My skin was left feeling hydrated all day long. It was so soft and plump that I seriously couldn't stop touching it.. I know that's a no-no! I found the cream very soothing to my dehydrated and reactive skin, and I didn't experience any breakouts or irritation whatsoever. I was left with plump, youthful looking and feeling skin. My skin looks firmer and my pores are much smaller. I couldn't be happier with my results!

Now, about the little blue device. This instrument has sensors that detects the amount of moisture in your skin. It works in conjunction with Lise Watier's Hydra-Detect App that you download to your phone.

After downloading their Hydra-Detect app on my phone and plugging the instrument into my cell phone, it's ready to detect the levels of moisture in the skin simply by holding the sensors against my skin.

Just wait till you see the results in the charts below!

The Hydra-Detect App

As you can see the app is divided up into; Hand, T-zone, and cheek, where you will check your moisture levels.

This part of the app shows the various levels of moisture and what they mean ie. dry, hydrated etc.

I took before and after shots of the app showing the moisture levels in various parts of my skin. As you will see, the results were remarkable!

The pictures on the left are before application of Hydraforce, the pictures to the right are after application of Hydraforce.


As you can see (above) my cheek went from 51.2% to 84.8% after application of the Hydraforce moisturizer. 

I was impressed!


 Here my T-Zone went from a low 37.6% to 72.1%!


Lastly, my hand went from 32.3% to 64.2%

Chart Summary

This is a fantastic moisturizer for anyone! Moisture is the foundation to youthful looking skin. I am of the belief that even oilier skin types need moisture. So, if you're stripping your skin like I used to, stop, and give it the moisture it craves! When you dehydrate your skin, you age it, and can cause acne and wrinkles. I should know, I dehydrated my skin for a long time.. until I knew better. 

Now, I can have plumped, younger looking skin without the acne! It's a win-win!

This product also comes in a formula for normal-combination skin and there is also a lip balm in this line which is on my list to try.

This product retails for $45 CAD for 45ml

I received this product free for testing purposes, all opinions are my own.
