Stress Defense Hydrating Water Gel is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Something Different The multi-action stress defense hydrating gel is different for me. First, I am used to using creamy, white products and this is a clear product. Also, it is a gel. It is like putting watered down vaseline on your face to keep it moist, and it works great for that. However, it has to be used only as a base gel because you still need to apply SPF and tint over it. It is an added step into the facial regime that may have great benefits as it did leave my skin feeling smooth and soft. However, I tend to like using 1 or 2 facial products that can do it all. If you want to add another product to your regime, it will work for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me I was very interested in trying the Multi Action Stress Defense because I get dehydrated often and I read that it has as calming aroma! After three days of using the sample, I gave up and went back to my favorite Strivectin product "Advanced Retinol Night Moisturizer" which I am a loyal user of because it feels better on my skin and it makes my skin look more hydrated than anything else I have ever used!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Even my oily skin liked it! I have very oily skin so I was a little apprehensive to try this product. I've only been using it for a week so I'm just reviewing my instant results. The consistency is that of a gel and when applied to my face it turns very watery. Within about 20 seconds or so it absorbs and made my skin very soft. I tried it at night before bed and did not wake up in the morning in an oily mess. I also tried it as a base coat before my makeup. Again, during the day I did not find I was any more oily than normal. Which was a relief to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gel Moisturizer This Stress Defense Water Gel does a great job nourishing and keeping the skin feeling moist. Gel is lightweight, feels refreshing, and dries well but not too "tightening". Other products blend well with it, but best to let gel absorb into skin completely first. Wish this product included SPF protection, so I didn't have to combine several products. I will tend to incorporate this product more with my evening routine. Recommend this product for a lightweight moisturizer before using a SPF and/or facial cream in the morning or applying after a retinol or other nighttime treatment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A cool and refreshing hydrating gel moisturizer! Moisturized my skin with out the weight of a cream. Provided a smooth, thin, soothing ,base for makeup without product caking and build up. I first tried this product in the winter and can imagine it being a cool and refreshing alternative to a traditional moisturizer in summer months. However, at 2 weeks use am/pm, I did not see any visible changes in my skin's texture or clarity. Perhaps I was not using it long enough or need another type of product for my age and skin type. type.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall great multitasker! This Multi action gel is non greasy, absorbs quickly, and provided an overall tighter feeling to my skin. I tried it 3 different ways. 1st alone no makeup...Great absorbing feel, glides on skin, and provided a tone overall feeling. I have very oily skin, and this did not make it any worse than usual. 2nd at night with retinol. ... again, it absorbed well and left my skin feeling tighter. Nice refreshed skin in the morning. 3rd under makeup... it absorbed fast and left skin feeling tone. I tend to get really oily in my t zone after a few hours, and this gel made it less oily than most creams I use. Overall, a great little non greasy gel. I am not sure that without my retinol, that it would provide my mature skin with enough wrinkle fighting power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light hydration I use several Strivectin products and a liquid hydration serum from a different brand everyday. This hydration gel was not my favorite Strivectin product, but I think it might be a good option for the right person. What I like about these hydration products is that they make my skin feel much more comfortable and less tight throughout the day. I think they improve the appearance but they definitely improve how the skin feels. You use the serum first, and then when it dries in a minute or two, you layer on other moisturizers and sunscreen. My daily liquid serum provides more hydration and comfort than this gel, so I don't think I will switch. However, this gel is a little less expensive, and so I think it could be a good option for someone who wants to try a serum/moisturizer combination at a lower cost than some similar options on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for oily skin I have oily, acne-prone skin, and this has been a great daytime moisturizer for me. It's very light, yet hydrating, and also works well for layering (I always have at least a couple serums on under my moisturizer). I only dock one star because the price is steep for what it is - I don't see a visible difference in my skin from using it; I just like the texture and lightness of it.
