Your skin often produces excess oil in response to dehydration, skin barrier imbalance or external aggressions. As a result, you end up with dry, flaky skin with a layer of oil chilling on the top layer, clogging pores and causing acne. Then when you use products to cover the pimples up, it just makes things worse.

This product celebrates the synergy between:

  • Nutritive and water retaining actives such as Hyaluronic acid, Natural moisturising factors ( hydrating complex containing Urea, Amino acids and Saccharide hydrolysate), Saccharide isomerate, Moringa oil, Rose oil, Fenugreek seed extract,
  • Rebalancing Actives such as Propolis extract, Resveratrol-rich Japanese knotweed root extract, Allantoin,
  • Brightening actives such as Pine needle glycoproteins and Vitamin B3,
  • Calming actives such as Cannabis oil and Cucumber extract,
  • Anti-pollution, skin barrier strengthening actives such as a Leontopodium alpinum (a natural organic compound for skin protection), Metschnikowia reukaufii extract (protects the skin microbiota), Glucomannans from the yeast, Pichia heedii (protects sensitive skin from urban pollution).

Their combined action will resuscitate dehydrated tired skin, restore the oil and water balance, protect your skin from pollution and make it healthier and more resilient.

Mantra: Primer for makeup, shield for skin.

Immediate benefits: Balances. Hydrates. Preserves.

What to expect over time: Balanced and biologically restored skin.

Power ingredients:
Vitalised water, Hyaluronic acid, Natural moisturising factors (hydrating complex containing Urea, Amino acids and Saccharide hydrolysate), Moringa Oil, Rosa rubiginosa Oil, Fenugreek seed extract, a mix of Oils activated by the enzymatic activation technology, Vitamin E, Spirulina, Rice wax, Propolis Extract, Resveratrol-rich Japanese knotweed root extract, Allantoin, Pine needle glycoproteins, Niacinamide, Cannabis oil, Cucumber extract, Leontopodium alpinum helvetia extract, Metschnikowia reukaufii extract, Yeast extract from Pichia heedii.

Love the Moisture!

I've been using the Day Hack for a few weeks now and I really like the moisture it gives, especially after exfoliating and toning. I have combination skin with dry cheeks and I notice my skin just feels nourished after using Day Hack. I do wish that they also offered a dewy moisturizer instead of a matte as I like a dewy glow. I'm currently using all of the 456 products, which I'm really enjoying so I hope they bring out more things like masks or body products or even a sunscreen would be great!

Wonderful cream

It took a little while to get use to the matteness of the cream as it feels quite different to other creams I’ve used. Now I’m a complete convert! I use alongside the tonic and the serum and my skin is looking and feeling great. I have less large pores around my nose and sun marks have faded.

Not what I expected!

I was expecting this moisturiser to be drying.. but no! It left my skin plump and supple! I just really need to find a SPF to apply beforehand so I can continue using day hack without any anxiety hehe.

Works great if used with hydrating serum

This is a lovely lightweight matt moisturiser which is what I needed. When used alone I found my skin needed some extra hydration so I combine with a hydrating serum and now find I have the perfect combo, especially for summer when I don't want to use heavy moisturisers. My skin tone is definitely evened out and appears more balanced.
