    I have oily break-up skin. Is Essential energy moisturizing gel cream suitable for me? Is this also a night cream too? What's the difference between this product and Essential energy moisturizing cream? What night cream do you recommend for my skin type? 

    Asked by: Angeline
    Hi Angeline, those with oily skin prefer Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream because of its lightweight texture. It can be used both day and night. If you are using it during the day, we recommend applying a sunscreen, like Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42, on top of it. Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream has a silkier, richer formula that those with drier skin prefer.

    Hi, What are the different benefits between essential energy moisturizing GEL cream And essential energy moisturizing cream? I am 20 years old, Can I use that product ?

    Asked by: Dana
    Hi Dana, a twenty-year-old can certainly use the Essential Energy collection. All three formulas of Essential Energy moisturizers will reawaken your skin's sensors, hydrate, and target the first signs of aging. Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream is a silky soft cream and Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream is a dewy, fresh gel cream. If you like a creamier, more rich moisturizer, then we suggest trying Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream. If you prefer a lightweight, gel-like moisturizer, we suggest trying Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel-Cream.

    Hi!! I’m 61 and already use Benefiance line , Ultiimune , Serum with good results. My question is: to boost my treatment should I use this new line?  Thanks for your attention!

    Hi Wilma, Essential Energy moisturizers are best to treat the first signs of aging. Our Benefiance collection is best for those who are seeing visible lines and wrinkles.

    Moisturizing Gel Cream is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisture absolutely, fabulous smooth consistency and good moisture

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and moisturizing I started to use it three months ago. It smells good and does its job to moisturize my face. It's light but moisturizing enough for summer and fall. I also bought a cream version and plan to use it for the upcoming winter.
    Date published: 2019-12-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average hydration. Nothing special. Bought the gel version last summer for warm weather skincare routine. After using the whole jar I honestly didn’t notice anything different. The hydration power is average and not very long lasting. I have combination skin, oily T zone and I found my skin dry by midday and I constantly use face spray to stay hydrated. The jar is also misleading, giving a false impression that the content fills the whole jar. But in reality, the inner jar is a cylinder, with the same diameter as the opening. Will not repurchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this gel! Although I don't consider my skin to be oily, traditional moisturizing lotions can cause breakouts. This gel does a fantastic job of moisturizing without any reactions from my skin. It feels light weight and doesn't feel like I have any product on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very light, no hydration I bought the gel from Berlin at the end of June, after wondering for a while whether to get the cream or the gel. My skin is normal and tend to get oily on the T zone, thus i decided to get the gel, as a more lightweight formula for the hot summer. After using it for a couple of months, like MM19, i don't see any difference on my skin, which needs proper hydration, thus I will not buy this again, but will go for the cream next time, which will hopefully hydrate the skin more. I don't really feel and see any effect on my skin, apart from the scent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and moisturizing I'm almost done with the tub and it's one of the better gel moisturizers I've used. I live in tropical weather, so it's perfect for my combination oily skin. This product doesn't break me out at all. There is a fresh, light, floral scent that is not is irritating to the skin at all, however I don't know how it might react with very sensitive skin. It absorbs so fast and leaves the skin feeling so soft. Highly recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Lightweight Moisturizer I was in the market for a good moisturizer, and after reading so many wonderful things about this Gel Cream, I decided to purchase it. I love this moisturizer; it's very lightweight and perfect for daytime, under make-up. It has a nice, light fragrance that is very uplifting. This would be a great moisturizer for the summer months!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisturizer ever! I've been on a hunt for the perfect moisturizer, but not anymore! This moisturizer smells so good and feels amazing on the skin! I use it during the night time because its very light and smooth. My skin feels hydrated, soft and smooth after applying it. Awesome product!
