Hydrating Gel

19 reviews

So many lotions out there are too heavy and don't absorb well.

And then there are others that work for a bit but you need to reapply often (thanks to drying alcohols and other filler ingredients that keep you hooked to overusing).

So we've done thing a little different. Meet our cult favorite Hydrating Gel, a lightweight moisturizer for all skin types that feels like a drink of water.

Despite your skin type (dry, combo, oily), over 80% of us have dehydrated skin that needs more water. While staying hydrated internally makes a difference, not all the water we drink makes it to skin's surface. That's where the Hydrating Gel comes in.

Made with water-based soothing ingredients like rose, calendula, and helichrysum hydrosols alongside aloe vera, our Hydrating Gel gives your skin the water it craves.

To really amp up the hydration, this formula also features high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic holds 1000X its weight in water at skin's surface to plump fine lines and give you a healthy glow. What's not to love?

If you hate most lotions, I bet you'll love the lightweight silky finish of our Hydrating Gel.

After washing, exfoliating, and toning, use a pea to dime-sized amount and apply evenly to face and neck (preferably damp with Ayurvedic Universal Toning Mist or water). You can apply a moisturizer and/or facial oils while the Hydrating Gel is still wet. Also works well as a makeup primer.

Enhance absorption (and eliminate the risk of pilling) by exfoliating 1-2X weekly.

    I’m 36 years old and this is the first moisturizer I’ve ever been excited about. Light but so hydrating, and a little goes a long way. Thank you!

    Light and moisturizing

    Love this gel. My skin tends to break out in the normal T area and cant handle heavy products. Its super light on my skin and leaves it feeling soft and moisturized all day, no breakouts. It also goes a long way, I need just a dab on my fingertips to cover my face.

    Moisturizing, healing, lovely product

    Cannot thank Gabi enough for this wonder moisturizer! I have aging, combination skin that is fairly low maintenance these days. The one continual issue I've had no matter my routine is cystic acne at my jawline and neck. I bought a trial of Hydrating Gel on a whim, loving Gabi's message, hoping to support local/sustainable. I made the switch before the trial was even gone because not only does this moisturizer moisturize without an obnoxious sheen, it has also started to affect my cystic acne and reduce even the most stubborn spots. My skin feels smoother, even some deep wrinkles are looking less angry. The only word I can think of is healing. I'm not sure I've ever been so satisfied with a product in my life.
