‘This moisturiser has been a game-changer for my combination skin’

Jody Coffey


A skincare routine can be a balancing act when you have combination skin

This is particularly the case for my skin when it comes to choosing a moisturiser.

One might soften any dry areas, but it could overload the already oily parts of my skin with moisture. 

On the other hand, another may keep my breakout zones calm but tighten my dry areas as a consequence. 

For this reason, I’m sceptical about what I put onto my face and neck as I find I’m always one ill-suited product away from a skin mishap. 

I’m always on the hunt for a moisturiser with a formula that’s non-greasy and lightweight but still hydrating. 

I believe I’ve found the one. 

Guinot’s Longue Vie + Cream is a moisturiser that I started using around six weeks ago. 

Though suitable for all skin types, I still tread carefully for fear it would wreak havoc on my oily areas. 

However, as time went by, I soon came to learn that hydration no longer has to be feared. 

Longue Vie + Cream is enriched with hyaluronic acid and formulated with cellular ingredients, that strengthen the skin’s structure by effectively smoothing wrinkles and plumping the skin.

This product is tasked with the job of erasing signs of ageing, with claims its cellular ingredients promote optimal cellular regeneration. 

If I’m honest, youth was the last thing on my mind when I began trialling this moisturiser. 

I just wanted oil-free hydration. However, its plumping effects can’t be overlooked. 

As a 31-year-old, I’ll take any assistance I can for smoothing fine lines. 

Over the last number of weeks, the Longue Vie + Cream has become a staple in my skincare routine, morning and night, without any repercussions.

My skin is reaping all the rewards of hydration without any consequences of oiliness or breakouts. 

While everyone’s skin is beautifully unique, if you’re in search of a lightweight and gentle moisturiser to incorporate into your combo-skin routine, this one tops the list for me.
