A while back, I had signed up for a new product testing site called Glam Sense. Glam Sense is powered by Topbox, a Canadian monthly subscription box company that I used to receive. The product I recieved through Topbox were amazing and mostly high end, so I was extremely excited to recieve my first campagn invite from Glam Sense.
Glam sense sent me Lise Watier’s Hydraforce Hydra-Protective Correcting Creme.
What I Liked: This moisturizer is great, especially in the Winter months or for very dry skin. It’s thick, creamy, and the right kind of heavy without being greasy. It’s not the best moisturizer I’ve ever tried, but it’s up there. For me personally, it helped with flaky skin really well. I saw results within a day.
I also really loved the app that I was able to download with this moisturizer as well as the hydra detecting tool. Unfortunately for me, the tool that was sent to me was defective, but seeing other people’s results blew me away (check them out on Instagram!). Essentially, the tool tests your skin for moisture levels and reports them in the hydra-detect app. You can test your skin before and after using the product to see the differences. Although my tool was defective, I downloaded the app. Check out some screenshots below.
What I Didn’t Like: This is a fantastic moisturizer, but not for the price. When I saw the price, I was completely thrown. $45 (Canadian) on a moisturizer is just too much for me.
Final Thoughts: Although I did like this moisturizer, I cannot justify spending the money on it. I’ve tried several other moisturizers for less than half the price, so it’s just not a winner for me. The app and testing tool on the other hand, are very cool. Even though mine didn’t work, I understood the idea behind it and think it’s brilliant marketing!
