”Love this gel! It smells great, goes on without leaving any film/residue, and feels so refreshing. This is perfect for the cold weather, when my skin gets dry and chapped easily–I just put this on after a shower and after washing my face and it lasts for the entire day. I will definitely be picking this up again once this jar runs out.”
–Lindsay M. (from Amazon.com)

Lovely, light cream
December 27, 2014
”I love this cream and plan on getting more this coming summer…I love the clean, refreshing feel of it and like I said, I’m buying more this summer. I have fair, combo skin that is now aging so it’s always a problem finding a nice cream that is not greasy. This cream is wonderful–it doesn’t feel greasy at all and absorbs right in. I feared it might not go on very well because of it being a ‘water gel’ but it is very, very smooth and goes on great.”
–Amy Goebel Padgett “AGP” (from Amazon.com)

Good ol' product to reminisce with

This is perfect for those with combination to oily skin as it is water-based. I love it because it is not only moisturizing - it is also hydrating. I love the texture, the mild scent, the consistency, and how it is easily absorbed by the skin since it is in a light gel form. Perfect during daytime but probably not enough for night use. I have tried the L'Oreal version of this (forgive me, I cannot remember what it's named) and it was meh compared to this. No breakouts, no allergic reaction from me at all. I have since then started using natural products with a few K but I can never forget how much I enjoyed this product. And now that I was reminded of it, I might have to get another jar of it. Oh and before I forget, this might not be enough for those with dry-very dry skin.

Never a sticky feeling

For oily skin like mine, I highly recommend this product. It's pricey compared to other local lines but it's really worth every cent. I've been using this product for years and never I experienced breakouts. I usually store this in cold place so when I apply on my face, there would be a menthol feeling. I so love this product because I never had to experience a sticky feeling especially during summer. Even I sweat, I just felt like there's water splashed on my face - goodbye haggard look, right?

For too dry or namalat skin!

I experience skin flaking (namalat) because of anti oily treatments and each time, I feel burning, I automatically use this because this is very hydrating and gentle to the skin. I use this 2-3 times and it really removes my other blemishes, prevents me from getting future breakouts and from keeping the natural texture of my skin. This is effective and I love it!

Holy Grail

I didn't know that you need to moisturise your face even though you have oily skin, but when I made an appointment with my dermatologist, she told me that I had to and then then she recommended to use something that is water based because it will not grease on the skin and it will not cause break outs because it will not contribute to the excessive oiliness of my skin. This is a holy grail for moisturisers!
