Most Helpful Positive Review Refreshing, but sticky
I've been using No7 Hydraluminous Water Surge Gel for the past few weeks. I received it for free from PINCHme. I'm 40 and have combination skin with some breakouts. This cream is definitely what it claims to be - a "gel." When applied, it does give the skin a refreshing, cool feel and I do enjoy that. However, it also leaves my face feeling sticky, which I don't really like. I'm not sure if it helped with wrinkles or not, mine weren't horrible to begin with and I've only been using it a few weeks, so it may help with them over time. If you're just looking for something to help you retain moisture in your face overnight, this will work for that.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to love it...
I received a free sample of this product from PinchMe. I really liked the scent, texture, and moisturizing properties of this No7 Hydraluminous Water Surge Gel. But after 3 uses, my face broke out. May not be the best product for those with blemish-prone skin like me. But I would definitely recommend it to someone with less problematic skin!
Reviewed by 182 customers Great product for oily skin
Shop maven from Tenn
I need a product that will stay dewy on my skin overnight and this product does not… It dries up completely so it's good to use under make up…thought it could replace the H2O gel which stays dewy overnight... so this one was a miss for me but it is still a great product.
Combo/Oily Skin Dream Moisturizer < 3
JessD from IA
This is IT!! FINALLY!!!!! I have oily-combination skin that is acne prone and for YEARS I had a hard time finding a moisturizer that I didn't have to switch out in because of the seasons (I'm in the midwest and the climate changes CONSTANTLY). This goes on easy and leaves my face with a beautiful, healthy glow that isn't 'greasy' or 'oily' looking and it doesn't exacerbate my acne. Yes, it can be a little sticky/tacky but after it settles into the skin, that goes away (if you use too much, it won't sink into skin properly). I would definitely recommend this product for anyone with similar skin type. It is my favorite moisturizer ever, especially for the price! < 3 < 3 < 3
Win for my skin!
MsJess from Des Moines, Ia
I use this 2x a day - it is my daily moisturizer and I LOVE IT!! I have been using it for about 6 months and my skin loves it. I am 36 and I have combination acne prone skin and this formula is perfect. Lightweight and gives a lovely, healthy glow. I havent had any dry patches since starting this product and it def helps prevent acne. It didnt make a noticeable difference in my wrinkles so if you are looking for that I still recommend this moisturizer but would suggest pairing with a serum (I personally use no7 lift and luminate, which I tried and ALSO LOVE, after finding and adorning this moisturizer). If you are looking for lightweight moisture for acne prone skin this is it.
BEWARE: if you are using retinol or AHA/BHA treatments this could irritate the skin!! Be mindful of what products you are mixing and how long between treatments

I wanted a dupe for beliefs aqua hydrating bomb and so far the neutrogena hydro boost has come close. I saw this and it was a couple of dollars less but I would not buy again. It has such a STRONG perfume smell it made my eyes water. It's hydrating yes, but the overwhelming smell is too overpowering.
i loveeee this product
Boo from Pittsburgh, PA
i use it twice daily and see a complete change in my skin.
Does not work
Ashlynn from Edmond OK
This product does nothing for your skin. I have severely dry skin used it for weeks and it did nothing for me. If anything it dried it out even more than before.
Bought it again before I used up the first
Momanda from York, Pa
Daily use after cleansing. Feels great on the skin.
Shanice from California
An oil-free moisturizer is a dream come true for many of us. I've always preferred gel products over cream or lotion for my face. Why? Well, it doesn't leave my face feeling weighed down or oil-slicked after a few minutes. This formula is lightweight, cooling and leaving my skin feeling soft and supple! A new fave!
InfectedBri from Wisconsin
With the winter weather months my skin dries out really bad and finding a moisturizer that actually works is hard to find. When i got offered to try this i was really excited! When I first applied it applied really nice and smooth and smelled really good. The first couple days using it, i could already tell the difference on how smooth my skin was getting and less dry every time i used it. It also doesn't take long for it soak in either and it doesnt apply on thick at all. Overall i highly recommend!
Elizabeth from Chicago
This literally gives my dry skin life! I live in Chicago in which the whether can keep my skin severally dry! I love applying this with my sun lotion and off I go with my illuminacious skin!
Nice Light Formula
bioNG from Oregon
This formula is super lightweight and refreshing. It doesn't leave my face greasy but still feels moisturizing. There is a fresh scent that leaves you ready to tackle the day.

Could be great
Jennifer from Mesa,AZ
This could be a great product but didn't work for me personally. This broke my skin face out and burned when on. I gave it to my mom and she has no complaints. 😊
Sam from KY
This is such an amazing smelling, smooth, skincare line I am so glad to be able to use this if you haven't tried you should I feel you can't go wrong with an reliable skincare product!
My Skin Looks Good!
Stellasmom101 from Laurel
My face is really dull and dry looking. I have tried numerous of products and none have worked. I have been using this product for a while now and I have noticed a big difference in my face. My skin looks and feels smooth and good! I am very satisfied with the gel.
Best moisturizer ever!!
Babyjudy85 from Minnesota
This gel leaves my skin super moisturized! I always have a hard time finding good products for combination skin but this gel worked wonders on my skin. Definitely recommend it.
Nikki from Tulsa
This product has been amazing! I use it twice daily and it has left my sling perfectly smooth and glowing! I have a hard time with products not delivering. This product delivered! It is oil Greek and water based making it easier for my skin to soak up all the wonderfulness. The jar is cute and is easy to handle. I would definitely recommend this this product, it will easily become your number one go to hydrating gel
Missa from Wisconsin
So at the beginning I was sort of skeptical as to what exactly its intentions were. Besides the obvious hydrating fact. But after maybe even the 1st application my face was almost like velvety smooth. And after this 2nd application I could really tell it was like a velvety smooth feeling on my face my face didn't feel so blotchy and dry. I would definitely continue to buy this just specifically for the Hydration for my face.
Shrina from New Jersey
This product exceeded my expectations for being a quality product! First, it's very hydrating and left my face feeling moisturized. I loved that it's oil free because my face is prone to acne and any product with oil worsens my skin!
Luminous Water Gel!
Raina from Florida
Love this product, I especially like that it is oil free as I can put it on under my makeup and not worry about it oiling up my face. It actually smoothes out your face and allows for easier application and protection! Would highly recommend.
Lightweight but Moisturizing!
AMP from Boston, MA
This is a great moisturizer. It's very lightweight and doesn't feel oily AT ALL. It leaves your skin looking hydrating and glowy while also never feeling like your skin is tight or dry. It really feels like it seeps into the skin
Light and smooth
Sam from Mobile, AL
This moisturizer is very light weight yet really gave my skin the moisture it needed. It was not heavy and didn't make my skin look oily or too shiny. I liked using it best at nighttime to wake up and glow next day. Would be great for most skin types, especially sensitive as the formula is gentle and scent is scarce. Would recommend to others!
The Best for My Face
Naughty Rabbit from TX
It gives my skin a cool moisturizing feel and deeply sets into the skin after some hours of the first day, though I think it is good for a little over 48 hours rather than 72; N°7 Hydra Luminous Water Surge Gel is a great product for when your face gets dry and feels dull. It rejuvenates and refreshes, setting in slowly and lasting a long time compared to moisturizing sprays or creams. Its gentle and clean too. You couldn't ask for a better product.
Hydrating with no breakout!
Whittywife from Indiana
Love love love this product! I have combination/oily skin and have a hard time finding products that help keep my skin hydrated. They all break me out and make my skin even more oily! The HydraLuminous Gel did not do that! It kept my skin feeling fresh and clean, it was light and felt smooth.
