Thanks to the awesome Glamsense program I got the chance to try out a pretty intense skincare product. Lise Watier Hydraforce Skin Creme!
I think possibly the winter might have been a better time to test this out, but since the warmth has barely hit here in Canada, onwards and upwards I say!
Lise Watier’s draw for this new product is it’s resistance to weather, using a new ingredient sourced from nature itself; Gaspé Algae Extract.
“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.”
In order to test it we were sent a little kit that included the creme itself and a cute, little winged device that made me feel like I was in an episode of Card Captor Sakura, which let’s face it, is basically a lifelong dream of mine. This neat little sensor plugs into your phone and tells you your skin’s hydration levels, using the Hydraforce app.
Seriously though, as sceptical as I am of an app and device sent by the manufacturer of the cream, technology is super, super cool.
So I used the app. Applied some Lise Watier Hydraforce and waited a few minutes before testing again. Here are my results:

So according to the app, the Lise Watier Hydraforce definitely did it’s thing. However, as you can see from the before picture, my skin was pretty good to begin with. That could be because as a dedicated product tester, my skincare regime has really picked up recently. While I don’t use products at the same time to prevent interference, I’m always testing something, so my skin is constantly cared for.
I have Combination Dry/Normal to Oily skin, with my dry spots being my forehead and eyebrows and the sides of my nostrils. The oily problem spot is pretty much my nose. So it could be a cream this intense just isn’t really needed for me, especially in the non-winter months.
I did notice a lot more breakouts while using this product, though that could be unrelated. It’s clear my skin was more hydrated, but I would primarily recommend this product for those who tend to suffer with dryer skin.
For me, the best part of this whole experience was the fun use of technology and the scent of the Lise Watier Hydraforce creme. It honestly smells heavenly and considering how sensitive I am to scents, was a wonderful surprise. The consistency is also perfect. The results? Well they speak for themselves.
