Hello! What's a good gel moisturizer that's paraben free? I'm trying to look for one that goes well with makeup application. Thanks!

Gel moisturisers are some of my favourites, for the most part they’re lightweight, feel soothing on the skin and are great at giving hydration, who wouldn’t want a product that meets those specifications?

Illamasqua Hydra Veil

Based on your message, I can’t help think of a better product to recommend than the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Gel. It’s not 100% natural and does contain a few iffy ingredients, but it is free of parabens. This gel is designed to be used as a hybrid product, part moisturiser, part primer and can be used as part of your nighttime skincare routine or in the morning before makeup application. The gel formula mimics the refreshing hydration of water, making skin feel super hydrated and revitalized. It doesn’t feel greasy, oily, or drying and instead absorbs into the skin immediately, making it perfect for use before makeup. Tip: If you can get to an Illamasqua counter, I’d recommend doing so as most carry small travel sized deluxe samples so you can try before you buy.

Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Gel

The moment I read your question the first product to pop into my mind was the Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Gel. I’m a huge fan of the Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus range and this product is no exception. A lightweight, “water like” gel I’ve used this product time and time again, it provides great hydration and smooths out the skin, plus Jurlique claim it helps protect against environmental aggressors making it perfect for use under makeup,

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Detox Bouncy Hydrating Gel

A new addition to my collection, Peter Thomas Roth isn’t a brand I’ve had a lot of experience with, but I’m glad that I managed to try this product. This super light-weight moisturising gel which dries down to a matte finish so skin never looks greasy, yet still maintains a natural glow. It is one of the most interesting formulas I’ve tried and is fantastic for those prone to redness and sensitive skin as the cucumber helps to soothe and calm irritation throughout the skin. Like Jurlique this is also said to protect against damaging environmental radicals

I hope I helped you and if you need anything else feel free to ask.

If any product you use irritates you discontinue use immediately.

It’s been an odd long day!! I think the destiny servers being down has made my day off feel longer. Played a bit of until dawn but finding it hard to get into… was feeling a bit meh but someone’s just made me smile… it’s the little things that cheer you up 😝😇

I know im late but the fact that speaking out about systematic racism got Lo’reals first trans model, Munroe Bergdorf, fired is so…unreal. As if systematic racism doesn’t exist. It’s like they don’t want us to talk about something that’s so relevant in today’s society.

Like I’m glad that “she’s going to be the face of a rival campaign, Illamasqua,”  but it shouldn’t have to be at the cost of her being fired.

Like the only upside is that Lo’Real’s racism has been exposed—because firing a model for speaking out about actual racism is just racist.

like i bet Lo’real wouldn’t drop her if she talked about sexism, but the moment she talks about racism she’s gone. That’s white feminism in a nutshell.
