This product is truly unlike anything else I've used (and I'm a self-proclaimed skincare junkie!). The texture is hard to describe because it's so different from most other products. It dispenses as a gel, then goes on as a very weightless texture, somewhere in between a gel and pure water. Quite different from "gel moisturizers" because this feels truly like a gel in consistency and not just a gel-inspired moisturizer. Immediately after I apply it, my skin looks like I just used a sheet mask -- drenched in water-based hydration. The product is so gentle and soothing, and it has a very natural, almost medicinal scent with hints of lavender. I loved the natural smell of it (no added fragrances). Skin is super hydrated without any grease/weight and perfectly prepared if you want to apply a few drops of a skin oil over it, or if you want an even hydrated base for applying makeup. Photos show a before and after applying the gel to the back of my hand. I wish the price was a little lower, but I will probably still repurchase it anyway. I received this product free for testing purposes in a Voxbox from Influenster.
