anyone have any recommendations? i have come to the conclusion my face does not like cream moisturizers, but it can dig it when it comes to gel ones. just wondering what's out there, if anything? or anything similar that you've tried if you're in the same boat as me :-D

I was looking at the new Neutragena one with haluronic acid, I think it was $30 roughly, I haven't tried it but I plan to as it is a lot cheaper than Clinique moisture surge which I definitely like.

i feel like i've heard of that!?? but im not sure i'm willing to spend $30 on one :P i bought a korean one for about $5 (from a brand i know and like) so i'll see how that goes. i do like things with hyalauronic acid though so... maybe i'll have a treatmyself moment :P

I haven't tried any gel moisturisers yet, but the only two I've heard of are Neutrogena Hydro Boost and Natio Rosewater Moisture Boost Day Cream-Gel.

I tried the Za gel moisturiser. I liked it but it left my skin feeling sticky which I didn't like so much.

I've been using the Neutrogena hydro boost night cream for 2 weeks and I absolutely love it. I like the smell, the packaging and how hydrating it is. And a small bit goes a long way. Will defiantly be trying the rest of the range.

Yeah I'm the same Shaz, normal moisturisers haven't cut it for me for a long time, although the Trilogy one was really nice. I tend to use serums and oils now and they work better. 

The only gel moisturiser I can think of that worked was the Dragon's Blood one, that was good. And nice and thick too, maybe give that a go xxx

it's so bizzare! i've had no problems with them the last however many years i've been using them! lol. the woman at the chemist gave me a sample of the shiseido waso one, hooollyyy moly. i think that's what made me want to swap - it's soooo nice. i think its called the clear mega hydrating cream... it's so nice. price, not so nice :P

i'll keep dragons blood on my mind but i'm not sure if i like them, im still using their eye cream and waiting to realize if i like it or not :P

Shiseido came out with one that I got a sample for and I really liked it. Think it's called waso hydrating cream. It's gel and feels super luxurious to put on. Great for sensitive skin too.
