I am not much into layering of skincare as my skin is acne and clog prone. I hardly use any serums or gels beneath my moisturizer. But Suganda Centella Green Tea gel has changed my perception of layering method of skincare. I regularly use oil free moisturizers to keep acne at bay, but that does make my skin dehydrated. Read on the Suganda Centella Green Tea Gel Review to know whether it helps with oily skin. *PR

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
The gel is housed in an amber coloured glass bottle with a plastic pump. The pump mechanism which works good and the nozzle has a small cap to prevent exposure to air or environment. The texture of the gel is very thin and consistency is watery. The product has no added fragrance neither from essential oils nor any other ingredient. It is a fragrance free formulation, although it does smell a little like glue.
My experience with Suganda Centella Green Tea Gel
Suganda Centella Green Tea gel is a simple gel meant to be used as a moisturizer for oily skin. It doesn’t contain any occlusive or oils to seal in the hydrating effect it provides. Ever since I have received it, I use it as a serum beneath my moisturizer and have seen good results.
I use two pumps of the gel and then layer my Plum oil free moisturizer or Pure Bubbles Clarity Lotion to seal in the hydration. The gel transforms into water consistency as you massage it in. It doesn’t leave any sticky after feels and absorbs into the skin nicely. It contains ingredients like Centella, Green Tea, Hyaluronic Acid which are quite soothing in nature. I see improvements in my dehydrated skin with a little plumping effect.
Suganda Centella Green Tea Gel acts more as a serum with additional skin beneficial extracts rather than a standalone moisturizing gel. The brand has mentioned that you can even add a drop of oil like squalane or hemp for other skin types.
After my first face shaving experience, I applied generous amount of this gel and it felt good. That day I just applied this gel and took a break from my regular skincare routine. Additionally, the composition of Suganda Centella Green Tea Gel is best if your skin faces irritation due to excessive use of actives or as a soothing gel post shaving your face. It can also be incorporated by dry, normal skin types in layering method of skincare. Oily skin types can use it beneath a light weight moisturizer or even under a sunscreen for a hydrating effect.
