    It also comes in a formula with SPF because you should be protecting your skin from UV rays all year long.

    "I typically get dry patches of skin on my forehead and nose year-round, but if I am diligent about applying this gel-cream, they go away rather quickly. It also makes my face look bright and glow-y, and I feel radiant on the days when I'm secretly dead-exhausted." — Kayla Suazo
