Beauty brands have taken notice by creating old standbys in gel form. Easy to apply—and to remove—gel formulas offer long-lasting performance. From gel manicures—perhaps old hat by now—to gel foundations, here are all the classics you want now, updated.
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is a prime example. First launched when moisturizers were the only anti-aging product for dry skinned women of a certain age, DDML is a cult classic. But for thicker, oilier, darker skin types. they came up with a light weight, oil free version –
