TULA Aqua Infusion Oil-Free Gel Cream

Since I can’t be any more ready for this Winter to end, the new Aqua Infusion Oil-Free Gel Cream from TULA is about to become my skin’s official gateway to warmer weather. Delivering intense hydration while remaining weightless, this latest addition to the brand’s moisturizer repertoire is a dreamy solution for my combination yet constantly parched complexion. Now, can the Nor’easters stop, please and thank you?

What is it?

The water-based Aqua Infusion Oil-Free Gel Cream is an ideal option for those who need hydration but who also are prone to that excess T-zone shine. Since its inception, TULA has offered brilliant formulas; the Hydrating Day & Night Cream and Illuminating Face Serum, (actually more of a lotion), to name a few. Both may be too rich to use in the warmer months, especially for those with oily skin. Like me.

What’s in it?

The main goal of TULA’s newest launch is to deliver a new level of deep hydration, but the brand also highlights its signature probiotic strain, which ensures skin’s optimal pH balance and proper barrier function. Fermented Rice Water (pore tightening K-beauty superhero) and Prickly Pear Extract (which thrives in some of the driest desert conditions on the planet) are combined with a proprietary Hydra Plant Complex to provide superb hydration for up to 72 hours. This does not mean you can go for days without washing your face, by the way.

My thoughts…

There are two types of people in the world: those who love gel moisturizers and those who loathe them. Sadly, many gels do pill. A user-friendly texture seems to be elusive and very difficult to master. Enter TULA’s hybrid, which is a great oil-free option for those who want the light as air consistency that absorbs in seconds and the lasting performance of a cream. Definitely worth a try.

Matte upon application, the barely scented Aqua Infusion layers great under sunscreen during the day or a richer formula (think sleeping pack or facial oil) at bedtime. Extra points for the travel friendly slim tube packaging and pump dispenser. Because in-flight dehydration.

And a little incentive…
