Best Gel Cream Moisturisers for Oily & Combination Skin

Best Gel Cream Moisturisers for Oily & Combination Skin

People with oily and combination skin can find heavier cream moisturisers too thick for their skin type. If creams are too heavy, they may clog up your pores and cause more breakouts. However, it is still very important for oily skin types to lock in hydration – if you don’t moisturise, your skin will try to overcompensate and may end up oilier! The best solution is to use lightweight creams with a watery gel texture.

These are some of my favourite gel moisturisers for oily and combination skin.

Isntree Hyaluronic Aqua Gel Cream

Gel cream with 5 types of hyaluronic acid for deep moisture and plant-based squalane and aloe vera to smooth and soothe skin.

This is my absolute favourite moisturiser of all time – I have been using it for years! The lightweight gel is the perfect consistency for my oily skin and gives me perfect hydration without leaving me greasy or shiny.

Heimish Matcha Biome Oil Free Calming Gel Moisturiser

The Matcha Biome Oil-Free Calming Gel Moisturiser is an oil-free moisturiser with a gel texture – this is perfect for oily skin that is in need of hydration.

It contains matcha, probiotics and plant-derived ingredients to provide antioxidants, soothe irritation, hydrate and prevent excess sebum, while also reducing redness and helping to repair the skin barrier.

Heimish Watermelon Moisture Soothing Gel Cream

A lot of moisturisers I try end up making my skin look too shiny, so I can only use them during my evening routine. But the Heimish Watermelon Moisture Soothing Gel Cream is ideal for use as a daytime cream in the summer.

It contains Watermelon extract to hydrate skin and prevent moisture loss, Shea butter to moisturise and protect skin, Witch hazel to soothe skin and ease inflammation and Aloe vera to soothe and moisturise skin.

It gives my skin great hydration without being obvious – there’s no shininess, stickiness or greasiness. It is super light and sinks in immediately. My skin feels soft and smooth after using it.

I’m From Vitamin Tree Water Gel

The I’m From Vitamin Tree Water Gel is the perfect finishing touch for oily/combination skin, as the gel texture is light and sinks in nicely but still offers great hydration for glowing skin.

It contains 68% vitamin tree leaf water, Rose of Jericho to hydrate and prevent moisture loss and Snow Lotus to hydrate and soothe skin.

I love this gel – it instantly hydrates, plumps and brightens my skin without making me look greasy or overly shiny. Just a natural, healthy glow! It hydrates enough that it makes my skin look and feel smoother.

Beauty of Joseon Red Bean Water Gel

The gel has a very light texture that sinks in immediately. It’s not sticky, shiny, or greasy, but it makes my skin perfectly plumped and moisturised. It really is an ideal moisturiser for oily skin!

The Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel helps to soothe skin while moisturising and brightening. It is ideal for those with oily or acne-prone skin.
