Description

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.

Marie’s word, founder of Gallinée:
“It looks small and unassuming, but this is the best moisturiser for sensitive skin. And oily skin (because it’s so light). And dry skin (look at these hydration results!). And skin prone to eczema. A very concentrated little wonder.
I love that it smells like no other cream, reminds me a bit of the gingerbread my mum was giving me after school.”

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.

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 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.

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

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

Usage

Apply over your face and neck morning and evening, after cleansing. It creates an ideal make-up base.

As the Gallinée Hydrating Face Cream is highly concentrated in active ingredients, a little goes a long way.
For the best care, follow with sun protection.

RESULTS: Skin is soft, tonified and soothed, with hydration levels of the skin’s upper layers increased by 55% after 4 hours.

It instantly makes my skin feel more powerful and protected, however, my skin is still hungry for hydration and I tend to add another product on top after few minutes. I would love to see cream for extra dry skin from Gallinee!

Read moreI bought the face cream due to a really positive experience with the sample, and happily the full size bottle has been the same performance-wise! I love how it soaks into my skin and doesn't leave a residue, and my skin has been calm. The scent is different but I like it, almost yogurt-like. I have dry, eczema prone skin and thought this product (and a humidifier) helped alleviate winter skin flare-ups. The one complaint I have is that it's VERY expensive for the size of the bottle. I had previously been using FAB (First Aid Beauty) Ultra-repair cream quite happily - you get about 6x the product (177 mL) for $36... as much as I like this moisturizer, I'm not sure it's worth it, except for maybe during a flare-up. Will see how long it lasts, I do tend to use a little less per application vs my previous moisturizer.

A huge thank you for this detailed review of the Hydrating Face Cream, we are so glad your skin likes it. Concerning the price, this product is ultra concentrated and will last you longer than a regular face cream. You will only need a small amount for the same efficiency. Plus, like all our products, it's packed with active ingredients: no fillers! The price directly reflects the amount of active ingredients in the product :)

We are so sorry to read the Hydrating Face Cream sample did not convince you. I wish it worked with you as it does for our other customers because it is actually one of our best sellers and it was tested on dry and sensitive skins with great results! Concerning the smell of gingerbread, it is due to the high concentration of natural active ingredients, especially in prebiotics and we didn't want to add perfume. We hope you'll find your perfect moisturizer ;)

The tube looks small but I know this is deceptive as a little goes a long way (one sample sachet can give four applications). It feels incredibly nourishing on the skin, sinks in easily and isn't greasy. Make up sits nicely on top. I love the natural scent which is a bit biscuity/yeasty in a good way. I use this in conjunction with the serum and eye contour cream.

Unfortunately I totally dislike the cream. First of all it has a very strong and persistent scent of licorice, so strong that I couldn't use it as a day cream. Also I found that the moisturizer doesn't sink easily in the skin, and I feel it on my skin for too much time after applying it. For these reasons I am using it only as night cream, while I look for a replacement. I think I may will give it another chance in winter, when my skin is more demanding. I do not want to say that this product is poorly made (because absolutely it isn't: the ingredients' list is excellent in one word), the cream sure is hydrating and gentle and everything, but I think it's not suitable for me, as I did not find any change in my skin in terms of softness, luminosity, or tone. Sad :(

But i was told this is fine for unisex , this product ( i also got the serum) I find too greasy even using a small amount. I also do not like the smell, and even tho i do usually purchase high end products i personally feel this is overpriced for the amount. It does nothing for my skin which is a normal -combo skin.

FAQs

Frequent questions answered by our founder and Doctor of Pharmacy.

Marie Drago

Marie Drago

How can I support my skin’s microbiome?

Using face products based on patented pre, post and probiotic skincare technology is the best way to improve your skin’s microbiome. This helps to rebalance your microbiome, soothe irritation and strengthen your skin’s protection against harmful bacteria.

Our Hydrating Face Cream includes a patented Triple Biotic Complex of prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics that help to support your skin’s microbiome in the most gentle and effective way possible.

Is the Hydrating Face Cream suitable for sensitive or atopic skin?

Gallinée products are suitable for all skin types and are particularly recommended for ultra-sensitive skin such as atopic skin. We developed gentle products that support and restore your skin’s microbiome, thanks to the active ingredients contained in the products. 

This Hydrating Face Cream will please sensitive skin, but also oily skin (regulates sebum), dry skin (deep hydration), or eczema-prone skin. The cocktail of prebiotics, probiotics and post-biotic brings hydration and soothes the skin.

Why does my Hydrating Face Cream smell a bit like gingerbread?

We don’t add any perfume to this product in order to keep it as gentle as possible, but our  Face Cream is highly concentrated in natural active ingredients, especially in prebiotics and they smell a bit like… gingerbread! But the smell is only very short-lived, so don’t worry about anyone noticing when you’re out and about!

Sometimes, when I squeeze the tube, I notice an oily liquid that is coming out with the cream. Is this normal?

There is nothing to worry about: our Hydrating Face Cream is created with natural products and its texture can therefore vary slightly depending on production, without affecting its cosmetic qualities, effectiveness or safety.
Pro Tip: Shake well your tube of Face Cream before use.

2 UV screens are among the ingredients. Is this Hydrating Face Cream effective as a sunscreen?

These UV screens are used to counteract the possibility of a reaction to lactic acid, so we recommend you apply a proper UV cream on top of the Face Cream.
