i bought a 2 pack set of this at the airport, I can't remember how much but I remember it was quite a good deal. It's not superbly moisturizing but it's good enough for me as a daytime moisturizer as I have super oily skin and I stay in a humid country.
This light-weight gel moisturizer that absorb quickly into my skin and because it is a light/non-oily formula, it is great as a pre-makeup moisturizer for my oily skin. In other usage, I like to use it to dissolve some of my heavier foundations into a thinner consistancy - like a tinted moisturizer. I found that not only did it work great, it has not broke me out. Try it!
There is 2 ways to mix:
1. 1 part gel, 1 part foundation, mix well.
2. For much heavier foundation, use 1 part gel mix with 1 spritz of evian, mix well and add 1 part foundation, mix well. Dissolve the water to the gel first, if not the foundation may separate if you add the water later.
For those of you guys who are concerned with the smell, this has no discernable scent.
Price: 3, reasonable.
Packaging: 4, love the pump bottle, hate the corners as I can't get the gel out!
I tried this after reading many reviews on moisturizers for oily skin. Everything I've tried (even those that say oil free) seem to make my skin ridiculously oily! To the point that I stopped using them completely...I know I know shame on me...lol So after my bday I started having horrible problems with my skin...smh. I went on a mission to find products for my skin and promised to stick to them! I started using this on 2/28/2013 so it's been a few weeks so far. I'm amazed! I haven't had not one day where my face has been oily...but it hasn't dried my skin out either! I use 2 pumps morning and night. I usually perform my whole skin care routine at about 5:30am and I don't usually start to notice oiliness until around maybe 4/5pm maybe? That's pretty much 12 hours. For me that's AMAZING! It's not really expensive...I think I paid around $35 for the 4+ oz bottle. That's really good considering how often I use it and I've barely put a dent in this. If you're oily and fed up I'd really suggest this! I can't wear makeup to work so I don't wear it often but it works really well underneath my Tarte BB cream.
I've been using this as my staple moisturizer for quite some time now. I started with the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, and that was working just fine for me, but when I discovered the Gel I never looked back. I have oily, cystic acne prone, sensitive skin (Yikes) and this has never irritated or clogged me. It's a no frills, basic, moistuizer. It works very well under makeup. Will keep repurchasing until I get a lemming and find something new!
I dont love this, but I also dont hate this product. I like that it is very light weight and non-greasy on my face. But I dont think it givrs me enough moisture that I want.
I have finished two bottles kf this already and im now onmythird one.
I used to use this everyday and night for a while but since it didnt moisturize enough,I use this about few times a week now when my skin feels a bit oily. other times i use my cetaphil moisturizing lotion in the morning and cetaphil moisturizing cream at night. In the summer time I do tend to get more oily so I often use this.
I love the pump and the cute square packaging and all, but I hate that you cant finish this bottle fully because you cant get the product out in the bottom corners. I will repurchase until I find an alternative light-weight moisturizer that does a better job
I love this product! It has become my hg of moisturizers I have oily, acne prone skin with some dry spots. So I always opted for thicker moisturizers to tackle my dry areas since I didn't want flakey skin to show through my foundation which in turn just made my skin more oily! Somehow I ended up getting a sample of this in my sephora bag and I loved it its a gel so its absorbed quickly, I don't need a primer when I use this. I have also noticed that my skin texture feels and looks a lot softer after I started using it.
I really like this moisturizer. I have combo skin and this works for me and needed a moisturizer and since I have been using this, I haven't even been breaking out at all.
I am using this in the 3 step skin care line. This moisturizer is ok it is quite light but I have combo skin and am sure that in the summer this will be perfect. It leaves my skin super smooth and my MU looks much better smoother and seems to last longer.
Edit: will be returning this system because it is just not doing enough for my skin I can get the same results from drug store brands.
This was just ok. I like that it was lightweight and absorbed quickly, it wasn't too heavy or greasy for my oily, acne-prone skin. But it's really nothing special in my book, it's just nice for a little moisture.
Something in this stung my skin on contact...automatic thumbs down. Be cautious if you are sensitive. For what it's worth, I can use the DDML and Moisture Surge without an issue.
My skin gets quite dry in winter time, this moisturiser does nothing for it, complete waste of money. I have to put loads on because it is so light.
