Having oily and acne prone skin has always made me gravitate towards gel based moisturizers and I have been using them since 2 years. Today we have another gel cream review which is nothing but Accoje reviving gel cream Review. Without much ado let’s check the review.

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
The packaging of the product is little funky with a different shape cap. The colour of the packaging is algae green and is little bulky. The texture of the gel cream is gel without any sticky and greasy feel. The colour is very faint algae green which is visible only when it is in jar. Once you dispense the gel on hand you can see the colour to be transparent. The fragrance of the reviving gel cream is refreshing although am unable to explain the exact fragrance.
My experience with Accoje reviving gel cream
I like using this gel for my oily skin due to the acne prone nature. The Accoje reviving gel cream is very light weight gel based moisturizer. The gel when applied to the skin and massaged a bit turns into watery texture and gets absorbed into the skin. The gel cream leaves zero sticky or greasy residue after application. If you are someone who likes to follow skincare layering then this could work well for you as the gel absorbs quickly into the skin. For someone with a sensitive skin prone to redness, if the gel cream is refrigerated and then used, it will give a calming and soothing effect.
The gel cream, moisturizes my oily skin sufficiently and makes it a little plump and soft. The quantity required for each use is very little and the product would definitely last longer than thought.
I have used Accoje Reviving gel cream beneath my IPCA Acne UV gel and the moisturizer doesn’t make my skin sweat at all. However I don’t think this gel cream will work beneath a sunscreen in summers. I can’t think of using any other sunscreen on top of it in summers as it is intensely hydrating.
Overall speaking the Accoje Reviving gel cream, is a nice moisturizer for oily skin due to gel and light weight texture. However this alone can’t sufficiently moisturizer the oily skin day and night. It would be advisable to use Accoje Reviving Cream at night which is creamy & thicker in consistency. However, for people with oily skin always a lightweight product is recommended. Although after talking about the pros of the moisturizer it is slightly heavy on the pocket.
You can mix this gel with your makeup base to give a dewy make up look or if you want long hours of hydration then mixing it with some oil can give long hours of nourishment and will also create a dense skin protection barrier.
Price, shelf life and Availability – 2150 INR for 50 ml with a shelf life of 30 Months from Manufacturing Date. Available at Wonderskin
Accoje Reviving gel cream Review
If you are looking for a gel moisturizer then Accoje reviving gel cream will fit the bill. The product is free from 7 harmful ingredients mentioned by the brand and is very hydrating for the skin. It works well under a sunscreen and might sweat a bit during the summers. The product is slightly heavy on the pocket. Although, it can serve the purpose of an all rounder product for all skin types as dry and normal skin types can use it in layering the skincare products and oily skin can use as just a moisturizer. Also I wish the packaging was a little simple, the product jar is small but the outer packaging makes it bulky to carry around.
