Which gel moisturizer is your go-to?
However, I’m seriously impressed with this. I have normal-oily skin depending on the weather, what I’ve recently eaten, etc. so I typically skip moisturizer because I don’t want too much moisture which would cause me to breakout.
To start off with, the packaging is super simple and sleek so I have no problem leaving it hanging around on my bathroom counter. The very first time I used it I used the included spatula to get a scoop about the size of a dime and this is when I discovered that a little goes a very, very long way. I now use 1/4-1/2 this amount and can cover my whole face easily.
This goes without saying, but because it’s very important I’ll say it anyways...$38.00 may seem like a lot to spend on moisturizer for those that don’t necessarily see a need for it, but I can see this one tub lasting me ~3 months so when you do the math that’s not a bad price st all!
As far as how well it works...I would say exceedingly well! When I first put it on there’s a nice cooling and calming sensation that’s very relaxing especially with it being summer. Although the directions say you can use at night and/or morning, I put it on right before I go to bed. It takes just seconds to fully absorb and you can’t even tell you put anything on!
After my first night of using it I felt a noticeable difference in my face (and I was struggling with dry lips as a result of some other face products that I use to control acne and the next morning they felt MUCH better).
Overall I would highly recommend trying this, but I do want to make note of the fact that I have no other moisturizers to compare this to*. boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer...read more
