This is better than the lotion one in my opinion. I guess I just like gel form moisturizers better. It is lightweight and good for oily skin and good for light moisturizing during the day.
I bought this because I needed some extra moisture for my dry skin. But no matter how much I put on, it didn't seem to moisturize.
After two weeks my skin started getting dry and on top of that I developed weird bumbs on my forehead, followed by a pretty big breakout. It looked like every single pore on my face was clogged. As this was the only thing I changed in my routine, it must have been whatīs been causing this. Havenīt used it for a week now and my skin had cleared up. Wonīt use or buy this ever again!
I like this product for summer. It is definitely drying in cooler months, especially when paired with the oily skin cleanser and the #3 or #4 toner. This might be best for #4 skin types, as I was typed #3 I found it only worked for me on warmer, more humid days. I hope to try this again in the summer with better luck, since it did help clear up my breakouts...
This is my HG moisturizer. I never regularly used moisturizers before because my face is oily and it just seemed ridiculous to add more oil to my face when I had a tough time getting rid of what was already there. And the products I did try were meant for dry to normal skin, so they were terrible for my face.
Then a friend told me about this and the first time I tried it I knew I would use it forever. It absorbs quickly without leaving my skin feeling greasy or filmy - it makes it feel sooo smooth! I use it at night (use an SPF product for day time) and my skin actually feels better in the morning than it does when I don't use it - not as oily and "yucky".
If you have oily skin and are looking for a good moisturizer that doesn't leave your face tacky or greasy or cause breakouts - give this a try. It is one of the best products I have ever tried and I recommend it to everyone!
This is my HG moisturiser. I had tried several others (including the lotion right before this) and found that they added to my oily T-zone and/or made me break out and/or made my pores larger. TERRIBLE!!!
This product moisturises very well and is not greasy at all. Other moisturisers left me with either a dry forehead, or an oil slick for a nose. And it provides a great base for makeup application. It is great for the summer months when I am oilier than usual. Will have to wait and see how it goes in the dry winter.
I love the packaging with the pump (delivers just the right amount to cover my face).
This moisturizer bears so little resemblance to its evil older sister (the lotion) that they shouldn't even share the same name! I bought this to use during the hot, humid summers but I've found I can use it throughout the year with the exception of a few days of very cold, dry weather. It works well under makeup and has a nice soothing scent.
I love it. I used to always use the GWP of the lotion, but when i went to buy the full size, i found out that there was the gel, and i like it more. I have combination skin, and only my cheeks are dry, so i just use the lotion when my cheeks are drier. =)
Definitely my all time favorite out of all the moisturizers i use. =)

I still love this stuff. My skin is really smooth, and soft, and wayy better than it was before.
Girls, go get this! =)
I have been using this for a little over two weeks now and I have found it helps control my oil issues quiet well. I don't get that very oily feeling half way threw the day. It makes my make-up last longer on my face and has helped my acne start to clear up. I love this and think it is great for people with oily and oily combo skin! It was a bit pricey at 24.50 but I got it during bonus week so it was SOO worth it and I haven't even made a dent in it even using it twice (or more) daily!
Have always battled oily skin/blemishes, but since adding a retinol product to my regiment ( & fast approaching 40) I needed a moisturizer. This absolutely fits the bill. Not a gel texture, but light lotion. Has not broken me out !!! Have the smaller tube size which will be great for travel. Plan to repurchase in larger pump next time.
Bought this for my boyfriend, he liked it because it was in a nice, subtle, not too girly tube. He has practically perfect skin, but it gets dry in the winter... this moisturizes his skin perfectly, isn't expensive (relatively speaking) doesn't cause any irritation, doesn't cause greasiness either, and he just adores it.
