The Best Gel Moisturizers for 2019

As an oily skin gal, I understand the struggle of finding perfect non-greasy products to slather onto my face. When I was a teenager, I dried out and stripped my skin of its natural oils. Little did I know, that is the opposite of what you should do. However, other products are too moisturizing, leaving a film of grease that would eventually lead to breakouts. It felt like no matter what I did to my skin, I couldn't come home without looking like a hot shiny mess.

Luckily, I found my saving grace before the end of 2019 in gel moisturizers.

Not only do they lock in moisture and properly hydrate your oily skin, a gel moisturizer is lightweight enough so you won't feel like an oil slick, even in the summer heat.

So if you're ready to balance out your skincare, then here are some of our favorite gel moisturizers for oily skin you need to try before the year is out.
