Just the right amount of moisture!
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, anyone needing a great basic moisturizer
I went to my local MAC counter, wanting to try out a foundation. When the MAC artist was beginning the application, she used this on my skin before everything else. I could not get over how silky and energized my skin felt. I ended up buying it with the foundation and primer, and it's become a staple in my skin care and foundation routine ever since.
I have severely dry skin. It's been a huge struggle to find a moisturizer that will A.) actually penetrate my skin and make a difference and B.) won't feel greasy under my makeup. This is it. It's perfect. It's thicker and more potent that a face lotion, but not as greasy and lingering as a creme would be. It's just the right balance.
I use this morning and night, everyday. And as I mentioned before, it's a great product to use under primer and foundation. It does not make my foundation slip and slide everywhere, and it keeps dry skin under control. Also, it has helped with my overall skin appearance, making it look more even and nourished.

Great for sensitive, acne prone skin
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly
I am a 24 year old college student with super white, extremely sensitive skin, that also eats junk food, barely sleeps, and works too much, so my skin is paying the price for my overexertion. I can use this gel day and night without having to worry about my skin breaking out. After washing my make up off at the end of the day, I put the gel all over my face and wait a few minutes for it to soak in, and then I add more gel to my extra dry areas and to the spots where my skin is breaking out and then after that has soaked in I spritz my face with the fix+ spray and go to sleep. In the morning my face looks and feels much better than the previous day and I wash my face and put the gel on again before I put my sunscreen and primer. This stuff is amazing! Now if I can only find make up that doesn't clog my pores or burn my super sensitive skin I would be perfect!

awesome product
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, all skin types
this is by far the best moisturizer MAC has come out with. I actually have very oily skin, and had to switch face washes, which in turn made me dry. I use this after using my new face wash, and omg what a difference! its not heavy, nor is it oily or sticky like the lightful gel moisturizer. you only need about the size of a nickle, and it preps your face beautifully for makeup application! mahalo nui loa MAC. please do not discontinue this product!

Best ever
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Absorbs quickly, anyone, dry skin
I work in cosmetics so I have tried tons of moisturizers over the years and this is the best yet. It absorbs so quickly leaving my skin so soft and smooth not oily or greasy.My skin feels so hydrated all day long. Also if you read up on charged ions you will find they fight free radicals and attract moisture to them.

Not for me

I really liked this gel moisturizer, but it was not rich enough for my dry, aging 35-year old skin. If I were in my teens or twenties it would be perfect.

DoesWhatItPromises
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, improvingskin'stexturethruhydration
Bought this and the eye cream based on consumer reviews. Couldn't be happier with the purchases. Honestly I felt a surge in hydration immediately upon use and my make up application looked smoother, pores/wrinkles less obvious and products looked smoother and stayed on longer through out the day. I use a stippling brush MAC # 187/107 to whirl on a tiny dab (of either face gel or eye cream) before make up application. Eye cream works well-- in combo-- with Instant Response to brighten, smooth and de-age my under eye + 50 crinkly skin. I don't think you'll regret purchasing this. A little goes along way and it does what it says. ;-)

I use this every time i put on my makeup, and i love how my makeup works with this moisturizer. I tried using the moisture cream under my foundation, but i found it was too heavy to wear under my makeup, but i can use it before bed or any other time i am not using makeup...

This does what it says. It's lightweight, yet still provides just the right amount of moisture. It absorbs quickly and never feels greasy. I love how hydrated my skin looks and feels with this. Recommended for day or night use. Works well under makeup. The only thing is the packaging - these things prevent ingredients from working better due to the air getting inside of it. I'll definitely still repurchase, though as it works for me.

The Best..Worth the $
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, dry winter skin, normal to dry skin, semi oily skin (not too oily)
My beautiful MAC lady put this on my hands while I was in there and I was so shocked by the feeling..It starts off as feeling like too thin of a moisturizer and then turns into feeling like smooth water! Similar feeling to Magically Cool Liquid Powder...kinda....ish! Well..put this on at night before you go to be and wake up with glowing gorgeous skin! I promise<3 (Only reason I don't use it during the day is because I like having spf!) And that's the only reason I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars.. :) Oh...and if you have rrreeaallyy oily skin..be careful..but its not very greasy or oily!

Mineralize charged water moisture gel!
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly
I have searched forever for a product that does what this does for me. I have combination skin and having recently moved to Southern California the humidity has made my skin very oily. This product (which I was VERY hesitant to buy because, let's be honest, it's water) is AMAZING! It absorbs quickly, isn't greasy, very light-weight and maintains moisture all day long. I also put it on before bed and my skin is so soft and smooth. I cannot recommend it enough.

I think this is an awesome moisturizer because some moisturizer break out my skin but this is not the case for this one. A little goes a long way. I apply it right before I put on my satinfinish foundation.

Have NO doubts, just buy!!
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly
I was unsure on this impulse purchase originally meaning to buy the Studio creme. I realized after I got home that it was the wrong product. I decided to give it a try anyways. My skin is so SOFT! I'm a week into the creme and I have to say it has blown my mind. My skin is more subtle, softer, and brighter. It appears to seem more alive, less dull than using my old skincare routine. I apply immediately after my shower at night while the pores are open, I let it soak up and then apply another layer of this creme and right before bed I apply my anti aging cream. I then apply this in the morning before I apply my makeup, and I've found that my concealer and foundation is less cakey and doesn't settle into my fine lines as much.

Good Moisturizer
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, Moisturizing
Overall, this moisturizer works well and lives up to its description. But when the gel "dries" it has a strange, sticky-like feeling on the skin. In other words, when it dries and you slide your finger across the area you applied it to, your finger will literally stick and the product will leave a residue on your finger. It leaves an almost film-like layer on top of the skin that doesn't really absorb.
I have used this product underneath makeup with my very dry skin, and I haven't seen any texture change with the makeup [Studio fix fluid usually]. The sticky-film texture is very manageable when applying foundation and doesn't effect application much at all.

Simply amazing.
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, dry skin, dull skin, redness
This is hands down the best moisturizer I have ever used. I have struggled to find good skincare products for my moderately dry and dull skin. I have been using this product for only 5 days and my face has made a complete 180. My skin feels instantly hydrated, soft, tightened and brightened after using it. I also have a bit of redness to my skin and even in the short time I have been using this, I have noticed a drastic difference. It is great for everyday use- I use it twice per day, morning and night. I actually cannot wait to wash my face at night so I can put this moisturizer on. I highly recommend it!

Miracle Potion
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, saving your life!
I went into MAC fending off the worst hangover of my life, certain that there was no chance to rectify my appearance. My skin was pale and splotchy, clammy, and just a downright disaster. I didn't even want to go in public, and I doubted there was any hope for me aside from a full face transplant. This mineral-charged fountain of youth life saver turned my life around in no time. My skin was instantly refreshed, supple, and the color balanced out right away. Exactly what I needed. I SWEAR by this stuff now! Just wish they could have made something for the rest of me to look and feel as good.

My favorite moisturizer
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly
Out of all the different moisturizers I have tried, this is by far my favorite. I love that it is lightweight and has a cooling effect when you put it on. A lot of moisturizers feel heavy and oily when I put them on, but this one makes my skin feeling dewy and fresh while still providing enough moisture to my dry skin.

Love this
Tags +Hydrating, Non-Oily, Skin brightening, Lightweight, Absorbs quickly, Moisturizing
I absolutely LOVE this gel. It's very light, doesn't make my face feel heavy, and really evens/smooths out my skin tone/texture. I used to get oily skin in the summer but when wearing this gel, that's not at all the case! It leaves my skin feeling fresh...not too dry, not too oily.
