Most Helpful Positive Review Simply amazing!
So luxurious and hydrating, I'm so impressed! I have rough dry, flakey skin on the outer parts of my chin and POOF, totally healed. I received this complimentary from Elle for my honest review.

I got a 1 time use sample from Ulta. My skin is very resilient. I've tried many different skincare items over the last 2 months - I'm changing up my routine. Nothing has been irritating until this. The fragrance is too strong. It dried sticky. I usually do 3-4 steps at night so sometimes it takes a little bit for the final step to dry. I woke up the next am, my face still sticky and new 4 pimples. I never have acne. I use 2 Korean creams daily with vegetable oil and I don't even breakout with those. This was the worst sample I've ever tried.

Great face cream

I love it！
Weiwei from Tempe, AZ
I don't pay much attention to skin care. This is the first time I have bought facial care products, so I am looking forward to its performance. First of all, I was surprised by the texture of the product. The gel texture can feel cold when applied to the face. Because of the gel, it will not feel greasy or heavy , but feel refreshing. The second is to be surprised at how quickly the product is absorbed. I used a friend's skin care product before, and it took a long time to absorb it after applying it on my face. This product is different. It dries in about 1 minute after applying the face, and there is no residue of the product on the face. Generally speaking, I love this product and I will repurchase or try more other skin care products from Shiseido in the future.
Best gel Creme for hot summer

Love this gel creme for the summer. So light and cooling, and hydrating at the same time.

Just started using this gel 4 days ago and love the feeling and the smell.
Love this moisturizer
anonymous from undisclosed
I definitely prefer the gel cream over the cream because I have oily skin and the gel seems to be much lighter and more liquid-based. Also, this is perfect for the summer as a light layer of moisturizer that will still keep the skin nice and soft. It dries and is absorbed into the skin rather quickly as well—another bonus. The only minor thing is that it is still slightly sticky, but the stickiness disappears once dried.
Melts into your skin
LeeLee from California
I was lucky enough to get a small jar in a Free gift. I fell in love with one application. The smell was too "old lady perfumish" for me but the smell dissipated really quickly. It absorbed really quick and left my skin hydrated all day. It didn't help control oil at all though. I still got really oily through the day. I'm still going to begin using this daily though. It makes my skin happy!
Watery and hydrated
KP from NY
Very watery and hydrated, it's clear gel form, easily to apply, absorb quickly so apply it ASAP after put it into the face. Good for summer. Has a slightly flowery scent, but will disappear after a min. It's light and might take time to see the result but I believe my face is hydrated. I do like it for the hydration function.

I've always loved shiseido, and began saving up for their products since I was 16 (I am now 22). I had asked a Shiseido representative about good moisturizers to use at night time for people that have combination skin. She had recommended this to me, and it was so incredibly light and refreshing. I love the smell of it, and it's not overly greasy compared to other creams I have used. It also absorbs really quick, so I don't have to worry about pillow transfer.
Nice and Light
Akiko from Houston, TX
Excellent product. Smells great. Not quite rich enough for my skin at night but is perfect for daytime.
Amazing smell, skin care staple, smooth & silky.
Karely from California
I love this moisturizer! It smells amazing, I usually start applying it by taking in a deep inhale and exhale because it just yells, "I love you". It applies to skin so smoothly and is not heavy at all. I also love it's designed to work with neurons to maximize skin appearance.
It worked great!
Maria from Las Vegas, NV
Found a moisturizer that really hydrates my skin. This is good especially for those who have redness and irritation. It worked great for me!
Ling from Canton, MI
It is gel cream, good for summer, not enough for winter, I mean for 50 years old women. I like this gel cream, it is light, easy to absorb, make your skin smooth all day long, won't make you feel greasy. Maybe it is too rich for 20 years old lady, my daughter can't use it in summer, in the winter is Ok for her.
Best in class
Kuri from Fort Hood, Texas
This is the best no-bells-and-whistles facial moisturizer. Works on persnickety skin like mine, and my husband who "hates lotions" even puts up with it without complaining. "Gel" is key!
Heaven in a jar!!
Wendav6067 from Foley, MO
Love this product ! It feels like pure Luxury!
bird59 from Canton, MI
This gel cream is great, it is not greasy, it can keep your skin hydrated all day long without feeling greasy. It is perfect in summer and fall, maybe not for winter in Midwest.
Pineapple from Brooklyn, NY
I bought this a couple months ago and have been using this every day since. It is very moisturzing and a little goes a long way!

I do love this as it is so light and not greasy at all , helping my skin to stop developing blemishes while it is super hydrating .
Feeling great after use
Wmn11 from New York, NY
I bought this a month ago. My skins feel smoother and not dry as before. My skins won't feel oily too.
I wouldn't call it cream...
QueenMMM from Detroit
This product definitely moisturizes. However, it's definitely a gel and not a gel cream. I took off one star because it has a runny consistency and it often melted on my fingers and slipped off before it made it out of the jar and onto my face. I took off another star because the moisturizer leaves a dewy feeling on your skin instead of soaking in so it's difficult to wear under makeup.
MayMay from Selangor, Malaysia
I got two 18OZ samples of this Moisturizing Gel months ago. I have combination skin, I used it at night before I went to bed.My face does not feel greasy after using it. After two days of using it, my skin glows and hydrates. I even got compliment from my friends. I purchased this product and continue to use it every night and my face now is brighter and look more awake. In addition, I like the floral smell.
It was good but...
Caley P from West Virginia
I tried this in a trial size that Ulta gave me from buying a lot of products. After I use a cleanser I always moisturize, well I was out of mine so I decided to finally try this one so if it worked I could buy a whole size. It applied really nice, my skin soaked it in well, I loved the smell and how well it moisturized. However, I woke up the next day with a multiple breakouts all over my skin. I have more oily skin, so I think it could've been too moisturizing for my skin type. If you have dry skin I'd try it, but it's not oily skin friendly.

absolutely, fabulous smooth consistency and good moisture
