Can anyone recommend a gel moisturizer?

I have combination skin and was told that I need to hydrate it better by using a gel moisturizer rather than a nourishing cream one. Any suggestions of type of gel that have worked for you?

 

Thank you!

I love the Shiseido Pureness gel moisturizer! It is amazing!! So light weight, yet very moisturizing. Give it a try.

Like malday mentioned, the Korres one is really good, and I also LOVE the Algenist pore correcting gel moisturizer.  I switch between the 2 of those.  I'm on my 3rd jar of the Korres, and my second of the Algenist.

Korres Pomegranate Balancing Cream-Gel Moisturiser

 

I know it has cream in the name but I have combination skin and use to use this and it was lovely. It absorbs well, isn't greasy, didn't make me feel sticky or gross.

I'm a fan of Clinique Moisture Surge, the yellow one is more for oily skin while the pink one/Moisture Surge is better for combo skin. Philosophy Take a Deep Breathe is another favorite gel moisturizer of mine.

 

I'm not quite a fan of these, but if those two don't work there's also Bliss Oxygen+C gel cream and Boscia black.

Caudalie Quenching Sorbet Crème has a very lightweight, airy consistency -- it's not a gel, per se, but I assume you wanted a gel because creams can be heavy(?) and this is not.

Others I can think of are Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief -- I've used both of these, but not in quite some time. I remember liking both, but I found the DDMG to be more hydrating than Moisture Surge.
