Shills Moisturizing Gel

Contents: 3.52 fl oz / 100ml

According to the package:
Plant Extracts:
This gentle moisturizing Gelis designed for Asian skin, providing instant moisturization.
Combined with select plant extracts, sourced from Olive oil and Chamomilla recutita flower extract with self-defensive properties, leaving skin fresh and smooth
Natural Moisturizing Factor:
Inspired by our original Moisturizer "Sodium Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid", this daily hydrator leaves skin comfortable and visibly well-balanced. Our unique combination of ingredients "Hyalluronic Acid" helps bind a large number of water molecules, resulting in a lifted, tighter appearance. With continuous water replenishment throughout the day, skin is smooth healthy-looking, and "moisture-even". This is formulated with a rare "Cereus grandiflorus flower extract", which possess superb wate retention properties, and helps defend skin from free radicals.
With a High Concentration of L-Ascorbic Acid:
This is formulated with a high concentration of  "L-Ascorbic Acid" known for its affinity with skin and its powerful ability to offers skin ideal nourishment and diminish dark while restoring balance and visibly enhancing luminosity. Skin is jolted back to youth for a smoother, firmer and denser appearance.

My Opinion:

I couldn't remember when and where I got this, but since it's going to expire soon, I had to use it. This is a very light moisturizer that works well in the summer or for someone with really oily skin.

I think this product has been discontinued, because I couldn't locate it in the Shills webpages.

I've been mixing two pumps of this with a bit of vitamin C powder for about 2 weeks and it has even out and brighten up my skintone, I've tried mixing vitamin C powder with other moisturizers, but they all ball up, and this is the only moisturizer that I have that works well with Vic C Powder and under makeup.

Although the packaging of this product reminds me of Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, I don't thinks it's a dupe once you compare their ingredients:
