It is difficult to find a day cream with SPF which isn’t heavy or clogging for oily acne prone skin. I have rarely give a try to day creme with SPF as I use proper sunscreen. When Kaya launched the Youth Hydro Range I was intrigued due to the Aloe vera ingredient in it.
Although I bought the product when it was newly launched, this review is a long pending one since April 2020. Let’s head to the Kaya Youth Hydro Replenish Radiance Aloe Vera Day Creme Review without any delay.
Kaya Youth Radiance Day Creme with SPF 15 has a gentle, lightweight formulation and is enriched with Aloe Hydro Lock Complex. SPF 15 protects skin from harmful UV rays. The pure Aloe Vera gel helps in locking hydration for upto 24 hours and helps in removing dryness, keeping skin healthy, radiant and younger looking. For best results apply pure Aloe Vera enriched creme twice to clean face and neck. The day cream is free from paraben, harmful chemicals, is non-sticky, has a quick absorbing texture and is ideal for daily use. Enjoy rejuvenated, youthful, bouncy skin with a dewy glow everyday.

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
The packaging is plastic tube with a screw top. The best part is that it has a nozzle to dispense the creme and you can actually control the quantity to be applied. The texture of the day cream is light weight yet cream and is not at all sticky or oily. The consistency of the day cream is smooth and soft. The fragrance is little bit bitter and is exactly like raw aloe. Sometimes the fragrance can be overwhelming and lingering especially when we apply a little extra quantity.
I opt for light weight moisturizer or night cream due to my oily and acne prone skin. I rarely go in for a heavy cream unless my skin is irritated. To my surprise Kaya Youth Hydro Aloe Vera Day Creme is light weight yet creme and gets absorbed like a charm into the skin. The creme doesn’t leave any greasy, oily feeling after application. The day cream has not caused me any acne or clogged pores at all. Although it does contains Niacinamide (my skin can’t tolerate this ingredient) which give me small zits although they are negligible in size.
Even after applying the cream whole day it doesn’t make the skin oily. Sometimes it does make my nose sweat and feels heavy on the nose. Regular application does give some whiteheads which can be easily removed with double cleansing or any blackhead extractor. The day cream sufficiently moisturizes and hydrates the skin. Although this cream will only be suitable for oily and combination skin types. It will be a serum sort cream for dry normal skin types.
Coming to the fragrance, it does feel little bitter and artificial aloe fragrance. When I applied the creme in a little extra quantity the fragrance feels irritating and literally gets into the throat. Although whenever we apply little quantity it fades away as soon as we apply and doesn’t feel anything later. As the creme works good in terms of not clogging the skin I can easily ignore the fragrance.
The best part of the Kaya Youth Hydro Replenish Radiance Aloe Vera Day Creme is the texture and non comedogenic formulation. So keeping in mind this feature one can easily ignore the artificial fragrance of the cream. The product contains SPF 15 which is in no way full protection from the sun. So do not consider the day cream as a substitute to the sunscreen. You can use any day cream with SPF at home once in a while. One golden rule of skincare is not skipping SPF, even at home.

Kaya Youth Hydro Replenish Radiance Aloe Vera Day Creme Review
Kaya Youth Hydro Replenish Radiance Aloe Vera Day Creme is definitely a good day cream for oily skin and gives good amount of moisturization and hydration without clogging the pores or any acne. The day cream is suitable for oily and combination skin types only due to its light weight nature. The fragrance of the product is little bitter sort and feels artificial, although due to the efficiency of the product that can be easily ignored. Very few days creams with SPF suit oily acne prone skin and this is definitely one of them. I will definitely be using this in future as well.
