Most Helpful Positive Review Wow. Completely impressed
I am utterly impressed with No7 Hydraluminous Water Surge Gel Cream. I received a free sample from Pinchme and was hesitant because I have had difficulty finding a good facial cream for my face. I have extremely sensitive skin and find a lot of products I try either don't work or don't work for my skin. I'm rather finicky but have found a keeper! I'm so excited to have tried this and look forward to have a staple facial cream to come back to that I know I can count on. I typically shower at night and I've been putting this on before bed. Even by morning my face is still soft and has not dried out at all. I get a few little eczema patches that flare up on my face and some products make it worse and i've found if anything my consistent use with this product combined with faithful cleansing has definitively helped to tame it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Made me break out badly
I got a free sample of this hydraluminous gel from PinchMe, and I really loved this stuff, it felt so good on my skin, which is why I was crushed when I realized it made me break out so badly. I tried switching between applying it at morning/night, using very little, and using acne toners with it. Nothing worked, and my skin is not even oily—in fact it gets very dry during winter. I will try to use it again in winter very sparingly, but I don't have high hopes.

Dee from Myrtle Beach, SC
I never write reviews. Never. But on this product I had to! I'm so impressed. I'm 69 years old and live on the coast of South Carolina. I have very dry skin as it runs in my family. For years, I've used Clarins so my face is in pretty good shape despite the inherited dryness. But Clarins is so expensive and, since I'm retired now, it has become prohibitively so. Enter NO 7. I saw a review in a magazine and decided to try it. I went to my local Ulta and bought this product plus the nighttime version of it. After two or three days, I could see a difference! The red blotches on my face were gone. And my skin felt so good. I love the gels (as opposed to creams) because they just feel better but in this case, I did buy the gel-cream since my skin is dry. The nighttime product is just gel. Anyway, I'm impressed and recommend this product. Oh yes, one more thing. It is not highly scented and just smells fresh. It also feels fresh on the skin. NO heavy cream feeling. I love it!

It wasn't nearly as moisturizing as I thought it would be. It has a weird smell and doesn't do anything really special. I would recommend the ordinary moisturizer over this, because it's cheaper and better
I will buy this product over & over again!!!
Pinkhog from Shreveport, La
I use this product every day under my base.

I really liked this moisturizer and I used it at nighttime for the first time and my face still felt hydrated when I woke up. It has not caused any break out or clogged pores.
Kensey from Arizona
I've been using this product for a few months now and I really like the consistency. It gets rid of my dry patches right away when I put it on. It's honestly great for the price and the best moisturizer i've used.
I usually this product all the time
Ginger the reader from Roswell, GA
I use this every morning and evening after cleansing my face. I love the way it feels on my skin.
Will purchase again
None from Ky
I was having trouble finding a moisturizer that did not cause my skin to have a negative reaction and this is perfect. Will be purchasing the set.
Kabeera from Greensboro
I like this moisturizer a lot. I appreciate how light weight it is but still keeps skin hydrated.
Vhay2007 from Camp Ar
This works for my dry skin! My skin feels so much better now. It doesn't feel dry and it doesn't itch anymore.
Great for night moisture!
Stacey from New York
I've been loving using the hydroluminous water surge gel from no 7. I tried it both morning and night and found that I preferred it as a part of my nighttime routine rather than in the morning as it's creaminess feels fantastic on a fresh face rather than under makeup. On the rare night I skip it, I wake up with some dry patches whereas any night that I use it I'm waking up with Dewy skin. I'd recommend anyone use this for skin hydration daily!
Cassie T from California
This was a great drug store moisturizer that was comparable to a high end one that I use regularly. Will be repurchasing.
Alexmo from Topeka, Ks
This was the my first time trying this product. It left my skin feeling so moisturized and soft all day long.
Heather from USA
I went into this review expecting to not be satisfied because I'm very hard on moisturizers. I will admit that I was completely wrong. For the last 2 weeks I have been using this on my face and neck after the shower and the moisture lasts all day. This formula is not sticky and doesn't feel heavy on the skin.
Good For Night Use!
BrittneyyDee from CA
I like this moisturizer. It's light weight. A little goes a long way. It dries quicker than some of my other moisturizers. I only used this at night (like I typically would any product) and my skin felt soft when I woke up.
Dawn from Yuma
I have a very dry face, i have been using this awhile now and it has helped tremendously! Its a small jar but it will definitley last awhile since you only need a little at a time!
No 7 is so hydrating
Tiffany from Warren MI
I fell in love with this hydrating cream. It is not sticky and goes on smooth. It is perfect for dry winter skin. I have been using thos everyday and I am obsessed. I would highly recommend this product.
Plumping and Moisturizing
DS from Long Island, NY
I loved the feel of this cream, it was incredibly luxurious and smooth. Since it was a gel consistency, it blended right in and didn't leave any greasiness behind. I felt my skin looked plumper and brighter after application. I took off one star just for the type of container-- I prefer a pump on my facial products rather than a jar that I would dip my fingers into. I would definitely recommend this product to someone looking for an affordable moisturizer for mildly dry skin.
Draya from Greensboro, NC
Great product, made my skin extra hydrated
Baby A from Roma tx
Loved it it had my face very smooth and i have a very dry face so this helped me a lot
Lindsey from MN
This was a good moisturizer. I found that it absorbed really well but also hydrated my skin very well. It has a nice scent that is not too strong at all. I would recommend this product if you have drier skin and are looking for a moisturizer I could see it being too much if you have oily skin.
Dry skin life saver!
Monay from Charlotte NC
I have really dry skin. It's really hard for me to find a product that works for my skin that isn't so thick and heavy! The water surge gel cream is amazing! It isn't too heavy and it doesn't leave my face feeling so sticky!
Best Addition to my Skin Care Routine
Aperkins from Texas
You guys.... Best bang for your buck!
But seriously, I use Clinique religiously, morning and night. I use this gel cream after I use my moisturizer and I have no complaints. My face feels more refreshed, not sticky at all. A little goes a long way for me. I also use the night gel cream by No7. AWESOME BRAND!
My skin feels so soft & smooth
Meggy from Long Beach, CA
So far I'm really liking the No7 HydraLuminous Water Surge Gel Cream. I've been using it morning & night for about 2 weeks and have not had any breakouts (I am acne prone). I really like the lightweight feel of the water/gel cream and how quickly it absorbs. A little goes a long way! It makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. I also really like the smell of it...the fragrance isn't over powering nor does it irritate my VERY sensitive skin. Overall I'd say the cream is pretty hydrating and would recommend it.
Brookie from Marysville, Ohio
This gel cream from No7 is super Hydrating. During these dry winter months my skin gets really dry. Most moisturizers wear off pretty quick but this lasts longer and works better.
It did not help my dry skin
mtrav5512 from Indiana
I was looking forward to trying this out but even after a week straight of using it, I didn't notice any difference in my dry skin. And for the price in store, its not worth it. I will stick with my Dove moisturizing soap and something I know that works.
