Skincare Sunday: The Best Gel Based Moisturisers

*Ad- products marked * have been sent to me by the brands for review consideration*

The shift to the Spring and Summer months means that my skin enjoys something a bit lighter in terms of moisturisers as opposed to the thicker creams that I tend to reach for during the winter months. For my normal skin, a gel or water based moisturiser is perfect for this time of the year.

The perfect formulation is lightweight, feels refreshing on the skin and hydrates without leaving the skin feeling greasy or oily. I like the fact that most gel moisturisers layer really well with other products and leave the skin feeling juicy and plumped.

If you have oily or combination skin, a gel or water based moisturiser will be a great option for you to keep your skin moisturised without overloading the skin. However, if you have normal or even somewhat dehydrated skin, some of these picks might be perfect for you too!
