Summer Friday's Long Pursued Moisturizer Is Here

Hydrating heroes and potent antioxidants to plump and protect your complexion

POSTEDBYELLIE BAKER

Pretty and functional are not two words that we would normally unify in the beauty world, with many influencers and cinematic campaign rollouts talking the talk, but failing to walk the walk. We're all guilty, buying a new serum because the packaging compliments our make-up bag, despite the fact it does little-to-nothing for our skin and makes more of an impact on our bank accounts. However, since its' launch in 2018, Summer Fridays has proven that this needn't be the case, by virtue it's latest release, the Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream.

Debuting on January 5, the oil-free, lightweight formula is designed to boost hydration of the skin. To do so, it uses three types of hyaluronic acid, a skincare hero ingredient that naturally betides in the body-rightfully known for retainment of moisture within the skin cells for a more plump and hydrated look and feel. As well as the hyaluronic acid complex, the gel cream is also formulated with skin strengthening amino acids and levelling pineapple enzymes, rich in vitamins E and C, that soften and even skin tone and texture.

Lightweight gel creams have long been best-loved for those with combination skin. Despite seeming counterintuitive, the weightless feel of gel creams permits fast absorption into the pores, leaving the skin hydrated and supple without excess oil or shine.) Being so, Summer Fridays notes the Cloud Dew Gel Cream is befitting for all skin types-from normal and dry to combination and oily; also for those looking for a moisturizer to combat dryness, dullness, and/or uneven texture.

Packaged in a 1.7 oz recyclable jar, the petty pwa pink whipped gel cream is vegan and cruelty-free; whilst promising a subtle scent for those who deplete to minimal fragrance in their skincare.

Reviews on Sephora see people delighted to finally get their hands on something other than the the brand's cult-favourite Jet Lag Mask as a moisturizer, with common callouts about its non-greasy feel and quick absorption. "When I apply it to my skin, it truly melts like butter and I wake up the following day looking plump," shared one five-star reviewer.

Summer Fridays new Cloud Dew Gel Cream is available for $42 at both sephora.com and summerfridays.com
