If you’re struggling with oily skin and acne there’s a misconception that your skincare routine should skip on hydrating products. Well, I’m here to break the news for those also struggling with oily skin and acne, your skin is thirsty for a great moisturizer! After a week of trying out the brand-new Summer Fridays Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream Moisturizer I have seen a noticeable improvement in my skin’s appearance and glow. Like all my blog posts, if I’m writing about a product it usually means I overall enjoy it. And the latest and greatest product from Summer Fridays is no different!
Full disclaimer, this product was gifted but I am honest about my usage and opinion.
Summer Fridays Brand New Cloud Dew Gel Cream– review and first impression
After the iconic Kim Kardashian leaked a sneak peek on her Instagram stories of Summer Friday’s brand-new Cloud Dew, I knew I had to have it! Marketing and packaging is imperative. The millennial pink of this new oil-free moisturizer gained acclaim. When I unboxed this package from Summer Fridays it was shoot time. Not only did this brand-new moisturizer photograph well, but Cloud Dew made me selfie ready.
The Summer Friday’s website describes Cloud Dew as an, “ultra lightweight gel cream moisturizer infuses thirsty skin with three types of hyaluronic acid for non-stop, skin-plumping hydration.” What makes this oil-free moisturizer one of my new favorite skincare products is the all-day hydration it provides. I need a cream that can combat those cold L.A. mornings when I’m up working before the sun rises.
Cloud Dew has been my daily moisturizer for a week now giving me a good first impression of the gel’s effect. Prior to using Summer Friday’s new oil-free moisturizer I was using the cult favorite Jet Lag Mask as my daily cream. While I still love Jet Lag, I appreciate Cloud Dew’s lightweight texture. This new moisturizer is gel based, almost instantly dissolving into the skin. As someone whose skin concerns include oily skin and acne, I have oily combination skin, I’m always looking for products that curb excess sebum.
As a Summer Fridays fan, I approached this product with the honest intent of seeing if it held up to the rest of the collection. I’m happy to report that Cloud Dew is a win in my book! One thing to note is that as the name implies it leaves a dewy complexion. Personally, it’s taking me a moment to adjust to dew. I prefer a matte look since I have oily skin, but you can tell the difference between a healthy glow and sebum. That being said I’m glad Kim K gave us a sneak peek because I was excited for my own mailer!
