What makes this product unique?
Our standards on the best moisturizer for normal, combination or oily skin? The good ingredients must dissolve lightly into all skin cells, swiftly. But we never want it melting down to you feel nothing is left on top. The best moisturizer should leave behind a comfortable, protective wall – a thin water barrier on the skin that feels non-sticky at all, that delivers prolonged hydration.
Hydration Station by Geek & Gorgeous transports a hydrating screen after each application. The air-light water surface stays Ectoin – a multi-functional active that improves and repairs damaged, sensitized and aged skin.
In addition, the unique Hydration Station features a new generation superstar hydrator - Isosorbide Dicaprylate. Synergistically with Glycerin, the two actives make sure water is perfectly distributed within the outer layers of skin cells, hence the skin will always be hydrated, and barrier be continuously replenished.
All Geek & Gorgeous products are fragrance free, alcohol free and never tested on animals.
