If you have oily skin and living in a tropical country where the humidity is high, maybe you are struggle to find which moisturizer will suitable for your skin without make it look too greasy.

There are many gel moisturizer in the market, and one of them is COSRX Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream. I excited to try COSRX Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream since it has green tea as highlight ingredient that good for help reducing sebum (oil) excretions in the skin.

Texture, Fragrance, Results, and My Thoughts

The gel cream come in translucent green color and doesn't contain any fragrance. COSRX Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream has bouncy jelly texture. It feels light and soothing when applied, however, the gel feels slightly tacky after seconds when it dries. The tacky sensation not to the point of being disturbing though.


This gel helps moisturize my oily skin without making it look greasy and I have been used this COSRX Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream for 3 weeks and no problem occured. I think this gel cream will works well for combination, and oily skin or for you who looking for a very light moisturizer for your routine that don't want a heavy moisturizer.
