Here’s Why You Should Try A Gel Moisturiser

Incase you didn’t already know, gel moisturisers are the next best thing for your skin! Perfect for oily, dry, pretty much any complexion, you cant really wrong. A cross between a gel and a moisturizer means the consistency is as light-as-water, which is perfect for those who hate the thought of smothering their face in a heavy-duty cream.

By using this in place of your normal moisturiser you can expect less black heads and cleaner pores. If your skin’s feeling dry, reach for these too, they work to lock in the skins moisture and on really dry skin days, these double up as a facemask! Apply a thicker layer, leave for ten minutes then tissue off!
