    BYOMA Moisturising Gel Cream 50ml

    I was lucky enough to get the lowdown on BYOMA a couple of months before the public launch and after securing coveted samples of the full range I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the full sizes – especially of the Moisturising Gel-Cream! It’s not often that I stray from my current routine but as soon as I tried this I swapped it in as my daily moisturiser and it didn’t take long after that to join my ’empties box’. Perfect for oily, combination or dehydrated skin, this ultra-lightweight and luxurious creamy gel-like moisturiser instantly absorbs into thirsty skin and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. It’s also infused with a barrier-boosting tri-ceramide complex, niacinamide and green tea — the perfect recipe for skin that craves hydrating TLC! Finally, at £11.99 – yes, you read that right – this dermatologist-approved, oil-free, non-comedogenic, alcohol and fragrance-free, vegan and cruelty-free formula is a must-try.
