September Product Review : Yonka Hydra No 1 Creme

We can probably agree that the summer always feels like it is too short. You start to wonder what you did for the last four months! But in reality, summer is coming to an end and the cold air is coming.


As the temperature starts to drop, you will notice a difference in your skin. The transition from hot air to cold air dries out your skin. Since it's still slightly warm out, this drying out can easily be prevented with a change in your skincare routine.

Prepare for the colder weather and substitute your lightweight moisturizers with something a little more creamy and hydrating. This is because, as the temperature starts dropping, your skin will need that extra boost of hydration.

Many skincare products emphasize skin hydration. They are perfect for this time of the year and our long time favorite is the Yonka Hydra No 1 Creme. This cream is ideal for dry, dehydrated or mixed skin.

About the Yonka Brand

Yonka Paris skincare is a brand and registered trademark owned by Laboratoires Multaler & Cie, a French company created in 1954. The company specializes in "phytoaromatic" skin care (or fragrant plant-based).

The founders of the French company perfected a process for stabilizing essential oils in water-based emulsions. This was the beginning of what would become Yonka Paris, a pioneer of aesthetic aromatherapy and phytotherapy. Over the years, Yonka Paris has established a reputation for consistently offering high-quality skin care products.

Yonka Paris skincare products are distributed in over 40 countries, exclusively through a  network of 5,000 selective spas and beauty clinics. The products are manufactured in Argenteuil, France, designed to maximize quality and purity of the finished products with precise selection and inspection of ingredients, and production conforming to pharmaceutical standards and traceability of products.

What is the Yonka Hydra No 1 Creme and How Does it Work?

Rich, smooth and velvety, this hydrating cream moisturizer not only leaves your skin feeling soft and plumped but also helps repair and soothe dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin.

Enriched with Vitamins and reparative ingredients, Hydra No 1 Creme prevents the visible signs of aging caused by hydration. The skin appears firmer, plump and more radiant. If you find your skin is looking dry and feels rough to the touch, this cream moisturizer will give you long lasting hydration with its formula of shea butter and grape seed oil.

Here are some key features & benefits:

  • Offers intense and long-lasting hydrating power
  • Absorbs quickly, making it possible to apply makeup immediately after
  • Formulated with rich oil-restoring, repairing, soothing and anti-aging ingredients
  • Protects the skin against environmental factors
  • Provides soft and supple, smooth and plump skin
  • Paraben-free and non-comedogenic (doesn't clog pores)

Hydra No 1 Creme also comes with a formulation for the normal to oily skin types, Hydra No 1 Fluid. This fluid moisturizer is non-greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin. The skin feels matte and super hydrated throughout the day without looking shiny.

The Yonka Hydra No 1 line also comes with a hydrating masque and serum which pair very nicely with both moisturizers. To get maximum results, make sure to follow up with the Masque No 1 and Hydra No 1 Serum.

What is in the Yonka Hydra No 1 Creme?

Directions for Use

In the morning and evening, after cleansing and spraying on Lotion Yon-Ka Toner, apply the cream to the face and neck. For very dehydrated skin, apply Hydra No 1 Serum before the cream, in the morning and evening. In addition, use Masque No 1 once or twice a week.

Stay Hydrated

Keep your skin hydrated before it's too late! The cold air approaches fast and you want to make sure to adjust your skincare routine for winter. Face oils are also a good addition to help boost that extra amount of hydration into your skin but a creamy moisturizer is a good start!
