Great if you need a multi -tasking/-benefit moisturizer.

This is the priciest moisturizer I've ever bought but since it also has SPF, it's worth it. It has also lasted me months since I use it sparingly and beneath other products with SPF but it's really nice: It gets absorbed into my skin quick, it has a pleasant smell, and since it's gel, it's cool when I put in on my skin - all of which give extra boosts to my mornings. I think it does the job of moisturizing my skin well as my foundation layers over it nicely.

Very light on the face and the fragrance is mild

Couldn't wait for beautyMNL to restock so when i saw this at the mall I bought one. i have oily, acne prone skin and i was looking for a new moisturizer before i put sunblock on my face. now i don't need to apply sunblock as this has spf 30! This is the highest spf i came across that's a moisturizer rather than sunblock with tint for the face. my face also takes longer before it becomes oily.

Light, matte, perfect

I have very oily skin and everything I put on my face (whether it's makeup, moisturizer, sunblock) seems to just slide down my face and become a sticky mess mid-day. The Hydro Boost Gel is a miracle worker - very smooth on the skin, gets absorbed quickly, and dries up quickly (unlike other moisturizers that leave a slight sheen on your face). It's also very light and once it's dry, you don't feel like you just slopped on gunk. LOVE THIS!

perfect for my skin

i'm almost done with my 2nd bottle of this and i need to buy one immediately :) i really love how moisturizing this is. it packs a great amount of moisture without making my face too oily throughout the day. it makes my skin smooth and soft without the greasy effect. it's cooling when applied and my makeup glides well when i use it as a base for my foundation.

Great make up base too

I have used this facial moisturizer for at least a year before and I absolutely loved it. I have normal skin that sometimes tend to be oily, depending on the weather. This moisturizer helped keep my skin hydrated while not making me look like a grease monster. I think this moisturizer also made my face look much more youthful. I always apply this before makeup. I let it absorb into the skin and it makes for a great base for makeup.

Multitasking without the grease

There are multiple choices of moisturizers in the market but it's hard to find a product suitable for oily and sensitive skin. Plus our weather is mostly hot and humid so a product that provides a non-sticky formula and shine-free result is a must-have. I'm glad I decided to try this product! Although pricey, this product provides the benefits that I want in a moisturizer: non-greasy, matte finish, moisturizing, and sun protecting. Will definitely buy again!

I bought this when they were on sale and I am loving it! It has a very refreshing feeling when applied on my face. It gives me a matte finish which keeps me shine-free all day.

I love it, I am giving this a 5!

I love it. I am on my second bottle! It's a bit pricey but it's worth it. (1) It moisturizes my skin, (2) It's not sticky, (3) It has decent spf..30+

Great moisturizer!

I have bought this numerous times and I'm really happy with the results I'm seeing. It is a great moisturizer that feels light and non-greasy. Even has SPF for added sun protection. I will continue to buy this when I run out.

Good for oily skin

I like how this product is absorbed quickly and feels so light on your skin. Plus, it has a mild (and not offensive) smell.

Takes time to be absorbed but does the job

I have this for sometime. I had high expectations due to its price and its SPF component. While it moisturizes my skin, it takes some time for the product to be absorbed by the skin but until then, the skin will look and feel greasy. Not sure if these are all due to my combination to oily skin. Nevertheless, it does the job on sun screen protection and moisture retention. My skin feels supple for the rest of the day.

2 in 1 Product

This is very pricey compared to those drug store brand I used. What I love is the SPF 30 it has, it is a 2in1 product. The moisturising part, not so good at all. I don't know between ending up looking dewy or oily. Mind you, it doesn't have that matte finish as it claims, huh! But it is the best friend of my concealer. Anything you put after this just glides and blends easily. It it is a bit heavy though but very gentle when applied. It is a good one, very hygienic pump dispensing system and a nice blue color packaging (even the gel). ;)

Just okay

Does not feel heavy or greasy on skin when applied but you need to re-apply if you want to get the full sun protection needed. Also a plus that it came with the pump packaging to eliminate double dipping for creams.

Pricey for what it is

Picked this up when I was looking for a light AM moisturizer. It does moisturize, but it's not moisturizing enough for me. I don't feel like this is anything special about this, wasn't wowed.

Refreshing for the Skin

Purchased this product looking for a lightweight everyday moisturizer with SPF. I used this during the height of summer so it was pretty much humid all the time. Because of its lightness I found myself second guessing if I've placed enough product on my face- this may be either a good or bad thing! I'm also not sure if this product does well when you sweat and I also did not feel that it was absorbed by my skin properly. But then again, I used this during summer and it does not say its sweatproof. What I do love about it is its soothing qualities that make me feel that my skin is quenched and rehydrated. This would be great for travel and for cooler climates.

It didn't work on me but it might on you so..

I liked this at first however I noticed after a while that it leaves a sticky residue on your face. The feeling that I got was like on Nivea's blue sunblock thing - sticky and shiny. I had a difficulty applying makeup afterwards even if I waited for it to be absorbed. In the end, I had to use blotting paper so that my make up would adhere. All in all, I dont recommend this for oily skin like me however if you have dry skin I think this will work on you.

SPF is great, wish it did more

I had high hopes for this product. The amount is okay for the price and I love that it has SPF, but it wasn't matte at all. My face felt somewhat too moisturized, although I do think it makes for a lightweight makeup base. I really like the pump packaging though, and the sleek bottle. I just wish it didn't cause me to break out if I use it by itself.

There's something about the brand

As a sunblock, it's very lightweight and has none of the sunblock smell. I was ready to love it. I bought this a while back but noticed that if I use it everyday, I get break outs. Or if I use it with the Neutrogena facial wash, I get break outs. I could get away with using either one just once a week, but I get tired of playing roulette with my face so have just stopped using both.
