AmorePacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel [Review]

AmorePacific Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel Oil-Free 1.7 oz

I got a sample of this from Sephora and I finally tried it out.  I have to honest, I don't have much experience with "gel-based" lotions.  I guess I always reach for something creamier when I am browsing the shelves.  Nonetheless, it was fun to try something different.

Pros - soaked in well, left my skin feeling moisturized but it did not feel like I was wearing anything afterwards.

Cons - Expensive (around $100 for 1.7 oz., depending on where you buy it from) and not easy to acquire (have to go to Sephora, buy online, etc.).  I also didn't feel much of a moisturizing difference compared to any other moisturized I am currently using.  I think the pricepoint is a big deterrent from keeping me from ever going out and buying this. 

Overall, if you just have to have something expensive, then this would be your pick.  But honestly, I would much rather buy something more affordable with which I would get more for my money.  I definitely think there are other facial moisturizers that do a much better job, that are more readily available to the consumer and that don't gauge the paycheck so bad.
