Hydrating Face Cream



Your best ally for a healthy glow

Hydrates, tones, and leaves skin looking luminous. Helps support your skin’s good bacteria, evening out the complexion, while nourishing and protecting your skin.

Gallinée light and creamy Hydrating Face Cream nourishes the skin with a high-performance hydrating formula that soothes, protects and brightens.

A patented Triple Biotic Complex of prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics helps to support your skin’s microbiome in the most gentle and effective way possible, combined with the antioxidant actions of organic myrtle extract.

Fun Fact: You may detect a faint smell of gingerbread due to the high concentration of natural active ingredients, especially in prebiotics.

Key Ingredients

PROBIOTICS: Deactivated bacteria from the Lactobacillus family (a major part of the lactic acid bacteria group), these probiotics are extremely gentle on the skin and help to support the microbiome and the skin’s protective barrier.

PREBIOTICS: A mix of ultra-gentle fibres and sugars that feed your skin’s good bacteria and help support the skin’s barrier, with an antibacterial action against bad bacteria.

LACTIC ACID: The gentlest of AHAs, lactic acid helps the skin to stay at its optimal pH level and has hydrating and softening properties. Gallinée uses a slow-release form to suit even sensitive skin.

PHYSIOLOGICAL pH: All Gallinée products are made to match the optimal pH of the skin and the microbiome.

YACON EXTRACT: A root hailing from the same family as Jerusalem artichokes, yacon contains one of the largest amounts of prebiotics found in natural plants. In Central America it is often used as a natural sugar. Gallinée’s yacon is cold-pressed to retain its qualities.

ORGANIC MYRTLE EXTRACT: Sourced from the French Mediterranean region, myrtle is a plant containing a large amount of phenolic compounds; well-known for their antioxidant actions, to protect skin from oxidative stress.

WITHOUT: Doesn’t contain colourants, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, microbeads, phenoxyethanol or methylisothiazolinone.

    Best face cream I have ever used, I have a very sensitive skin and felt no pain, burn, rash or irritation since I have started using it. It has also helped with my exzema and the skin is super soft now. Sooooooooo good – thanks Gallinee, you nailed it.

    I have a combination skin and this hydrating cream works great. My skin is left hydrated and very soft. Since I have been using it, it has balanced my complexion. I feel my skin less oily in the forehead, chin and nose areas.

    It’s a very nice cream that hydrates and nourish without irritating the skin. It has helped me through the cold and windy Edinburgh winter keeping my skin healthy. In my opinion, it may feel a little sticky but nothing that can’t be solved with some setting powder.

    One of the best face moisturizer I’ve used so far. The texture is light enough not to be sticky however you can see after a few days only that you’re skin is healthier.
    I can already see my skin is well hydrated, with less imperfections. The hydratation last all days even with make up on !! So happy I’ve discovered this moisturizer and from now on, it will be my everyday essential!!

    I’m so glad I found such a great moisturizer without fatty alcohols, which always break my skin out! This is one of almost 0 moisturizers which doesn’t give me any reaction. It’s surprisingly the most hydrating product I’ve ever used, I wake up with plump skin like never before, and it lasts all day, even in the cold dry winter. I will never be without it!

    I love this product. It was the first one that I tried from Gallinée and I’m still in love! Its fluid texture doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy and at the same time it really does what it promises: hydrate and balances the skin. It’s a super hero product!

    The perfect moisturiser. Light enough to use with makeup, but strong enough to get rid of dry and flaky skin.

  12. andriaj.cooke

    This cream has a very comforting and enjoyable scent which yet is not overpowering. A tiny amount goes a long way. It makes my skin seem shiny at first (the reason I have not given 5 stars) but this seems to subside and the shininess does not seem to increase during the day is usual.
    Makes my skin look and feel smoother and firmer.

  13. Aleha

    Got this cream for family member and so far it’s working really well. Leaving the skin much calmer and not as red or sore as they have been feeling. Only been useing for a short time. Hence the 5 stars

  14. Barbara

    It has done amazing results on redness and to have a soft skill – it’s a great product!!

  15. Kyria

    I have been amazed by this cream. I have had dermatitis seborreica on my sclap for about 6 months and a bit out of the blue I tried to put the cream on my scalp, leave it for the night and wash my hair in the morning. It really made a huge difference! I really can see and feel that my scalp is healthier. I am so happy. For me, it is the only thing that really worked. Thank you Gallinée
