In Celebration of Gel Moisturizers!
Updated: Feb 22
If you’ve ever been frustrated by the thick, greasy feeling of traditional moisturizers, then get ready to celebrate: gel moisturizers are here! Gel moisturizers provide all the hydration and nourishment your skin needs without any of the mess or stickiness. They’re light, easy to apply, and quickly absorbed into your skin for long-lasting results. Gel moisturizers are typically recommended for oily skin, but I'm here to advocate for those who don't have oily skin and still want to get in this. So if you want a moisture boost that won't weigh you down, read on to find out why gel moisturizer is your new best friend.
First, let me disclose that my skin tends to be normal but on the dry side, so always use what works best for your skin. Once I started using gel moisturizer in the morning, everything got better. First, it's not too heavy, especially for a daytime moisturizer when you're adding multiple products on top of it. Second, it absorbs into the skin like a dream! It does not leave any kind of moisture residue on the skin that will make your foundation slide off, either. In fact, I almost feel like it might be a little bit tacky on the skin which grips onto a primer or foundation, and stays in place all day.
So go ahead! Try out a gel moisturizer and see if it changes how you feel about your other products! I recommend Belif True Cream Aqua Bomb Moisturizer, Tatcha Water Cream, and Biossance Squalane and Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
