Summer Fridays Cloud Dew is my most used new Skincare product of 2021 so far. It quickly let the other moisturisers in my collection know that they were to be gathering dust for a hot second because I’d be falling in love with it.

Cloud Dew (they get the names so right, don’t they?)¬†is a oil free gel moisturiser that is packed with humectants, hydrators, moisturisers, amino acids, ceramides, fruit extracts and ascorbic acid (which I can very easily struggle with but I don’t in this formula).

So it’s a moisturiser that does more than moisturise? Brilliant.

The sorbet jelly like cream is suitable for use both AM and PM, but is a particularly great base for makeup. Often a gel can feel like it evaporates on application, but this is far from ‘nothingy’ it properly hydrates¬†without feeling thick or heavy (even though it contains shea and cocoa butter which I avoid across most formulas). It also seems to be fragrance free.

This is such a pleasure to use, for all skin types. Particularly great if you have a ‘normal’, combination or lean slightly more towards oily skin.

If you’re familiar with gel creams, this offers more hydration than Clinique Moisture Surge and sits closer to Sunday Riley’s Tidal. Both of which I keep around and use regularly, because I need options. Obviously.
