Moisturizer recommendations

Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a gel-cream moisturizer for oily-combination skin? I was thinking of getting the Summer Fridays Cloud Dew Gel Cream Moisturizer 1.70 oz/ 50 mL, but I was wondering if anyone else had recommendations 

Re: Moisturizer recommendations

I really enjoy The Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb Hydrating Moisturizer With Squalane. Super light texture, light gel/watery texture, fresh scent, and moisturizing. Didn't break me out at all.

Re: Moisturizer recommendations

Hey I'm oily skin as well and I have a few I rotate depending on my skins needs at the time.

Caudalie Vinopure moisturizer is tailored towards us with oily skin and even acne prone skin (can't tag the moisturizer on my phone so here's one from the line to get you closer Caudalie Vinopure Color Correcting Spot Solution with Salicylic Acid .5 oz / 15 ml )

First aid beauty oil control moisturizer is decent but it's not mattifing enough for my daytime needs, I use it more evenings.

Skinfix barrier+ gel cream moisturizer is great for pm and am but again not mattifing.

Blume Meltdown Gel Cream for Acne-Prone Skin with 72 hour Hydration 1.7 oz / 50 mL I want to try this blume moisturizer- their entire line is tailored to oily and acne prone skin.

Clinique moisture surge 100h is a gel-cream texture (as opposed to the 72h which is for dry skin) I've heard good things but never tried it myself yet.

Hope some of these help you! I tried to tag all these that Sephora has but I'm on my phone and it only displays like 5-6 products at once and if you hit space to try to narrow down the right product it breaks the tag line)

Re: Moisturizer recommendations

@oceanloverr  Have you ever tried Glow Recipie? These two moisturizers are gel like  both are okay for Oily Combo skin.


Glow Recipe Plum Plump Refillable Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer 


Glow Recipe Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer 2 oz / 60 ml 


Though the Plum Plump does well with drier skin or as a winter moisturizer, it's the heavier of the two.


Pink Juice is highlighted as best suited for Oily Combo skin.  It's lighter and less heavy than it's sister,  the Plum Plump.


I totally recommend giving then a test next time your at Sephora. ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฉท
