This is the ONLY moisturizer that my oily sensitive skin has been able to tolerate and doesn't make me break out or sting my skin! I put a good amount after my shower and it just melts in and makes my skin look AMAZING! Definitely worth every penny for me ! Packaging could have been better than this unsanitary jar but i am willing to overlook that for such a stellar product!

this is the first gel face moisturizer I've tried and I love it. I find that the gel is more refreshing than lotion and dries quicker so I can apply foundation on top with not much of a wait or hassle. the reason i like the packaging is because it's very sturdy and holds a decent amount of product and i feel that if it was held in plastic it would not be able to hold it's refreshing effect as well.

This is so great! The winter has made my skin (especially on my chin and upper lip) super dry, yet my forehead remains very oily and acne-prone. This moisturizer has helped immensely to clear the acne and smoothen my skin. Also, it leaves a nice matte finish once you've used a light coating all over your entire face. I love it!

This product is extremely lightweight and it sinks into your skin like a dream. I found it extremely spreadable making it so that I need less product to cover my face. This product is pretty nice. I could see how it would work better for others, but for me it doesn't give me that finish that I like. After I apply this, I notice my face looks matte and personally I don't particularly like a matte finish so I have been only applying this liberally at night. It has caused no breakouts and my skin looks pretty nice in the morning.
Overall, I think this product is so-so. It wasn't exactly my cup of tea or should I say 'pot of moisturizer' hahaha but I will continue to use until it's all gone.

I love love this moisturizer! It feels lightweight, it leaves that refreshing tingle to your skin which feels amazing, and leaves NO oil residue and soaks in rather quickly. My skin type ranger from combination to dry skin, and because my acne scrub kind of makes my skin drier and peel this moisturizer is really a rescue. Maybe its just me but it also gives my face a glow. It's been a while since i got my first jar and i still have it. My skin does get dry especially during winter, and can also get a little oily during the summer time when its hot (sweat is yuck but it's okay) Nonetheless, ladies and some gentlemen (this product is for everybody in my opinion) it is a great moisturizer and i'll definitely be back to get another jar.

This moisturizer is of a very light gel-like consistency, as in the name, so if you're in need of a heavy duty moisturizer this isn't for you. This gel also has a slight cucumber/aloe fragrance to it. I find this to be a perfect summertime moisturizer as it's very light weight and sinks in quickly. It states to use it morning and night, but I only truly used it in the mornings since it's so light and so I can use a heavier cream at night. No problems as far as it causing breakouts and such.

Just about finished with my first jar of this product, and I will definitely be purchasing again!

Perfect for summertime, and wears great under makeup. A little light for winter dryness, though. I'll look forward to using this again in May!

This is a great light moisturizer! I have combination skin that is VERY sensitive and acne/milia prone, and I was a bit hesitant to try this product because I thought it would be too heavy. It actually delivers the perfect amount of moisture and doesn't irritate my skin whatsoever. I'm not sure if it would be moisturizing enough for someone with very dry skin but I would recommend it for those with combination skin like me and oily skin! Will repurchase.

Nice gel consistency
Feels light and cooling on the skin
Doesn't irritate the face
Absorbs in seconds & works well under makeup
Relatively inexpensive

No spf
Has a slight fragrance
Container is just a tub (some might find it unhygenic)

I have been battling a terrible breakout of whiteheads for the past 6 months. This has resulted in my skin being super sensitive and very dry from over-washing and from all of the products I was using to try to get rid of the acne. Every cream I used, whether for sensitive, acne-prone or combination skin, broke me out even worse and in some cases caused painful cysts to form. I saw this on sale at a local drug store and decided to try it since it was a gel and seemed less threatening. I have been using it with caution for the past month (only in the morning after I wash my face) and so far so good. It hasn't caused me to break out, the gel feels soothing against my sensitive skin (like Aloe Vera would) and it does not linger on your skin throughout the day meaning you don't get that greasy "dirty" feeling that makes you want to run to the washroom and scrub your face. You can wear it under makeup and it hydrates well. Since my skin has become super dry and flaky, I use Aveeno Baby Moisture Relief Cream for the very dry areas so keep in mind that those with VERY dry skin may need to use a backup as a spot treatment. The most important thing about this product is that it does not seem to clog pores causing more breakouts, which is a rare find. It doesn't do anything in terms of treating any sort of acne, but it does hydrate your skin and even out your complexion if used consistently.
