It is an oil free, lightweight, deeply hydrating moisturizer. No need to layer extra sunblock, because this has you covered with spf 50. Your skin is left with a matte base that acts as a perfect primer. I got mine in an influenster box, and I’m so glad I did. This is definitely something I will purchase again. It is made with Vitamin E, Moringa and Edelweiss. The aquagel texture turns into a water like, blendable gel that absorbs quickly.

or nothing at all!. That’s why I am using Replete skincare. With Replete 100% of their products are usuable by the skin and will absorb without leaving any residue. The line is expensive, but at least you’re not paying for any filler, synthetics or junk. This highly concentrated, vegan line is designed to deliver what skin wants and needs, according to the body’s natural system in relationship to its environment. “One Replete™ product has 30-99% active ingredients, which is significantly more than the current standard that only requires 1% of active ingredients per package. The “more is more” value is true with Replete™.” The line is based on the science or circadian rhythms and seasonal cycles. I recommend heading to their website to read all about this.  My favorite product in the line is the Eye RestoreIt is an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory treatment to help maintain bright, youthful-looking eyes and lids. It is said to promotes better beauty sleep for total circadian recovery due to improved circulation. It includes sesame oil and powerful carotenes to protect the skin from premature aging and wrinkles. So get with Replete and get more for your money
