I'm swapping foundation for this lightweight gel moisturiser come summer

The Murad Clarifying Oil-Free Water Gel is my summer beauty staple. 

I hate the feeling of heavy-duty products on my skin. I can just about manage an oil-free sunscreen in the summer months, let alone a full-whack greasy moisturiser. So when I tried Murad's Clarifying Oil-Free Water Gel last year, it was love at first application. 

I'll admit: £38 is a little steep for a moisturizer. (Even one as dreamy as this.) So when I saw that Amazon is offering it at nearly 20% off in today's Prime Day deals, I set about stockpiling as many as my bank balance would allow. 

Here's everything you need to know about this brilliant beauty deal so you can get your hands on it, too. 

This high-performing moisturizer is packed with skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid for long-lasting deep hydration, Korean red pine extract to interrupt bacteria signals, and ginger root extract to comfort and soothe. 

There's the assumption that the heavier the cream, the harder it's working, but for such a lightweight formula, Murad's gel moisturizer really packs a punch. 

Don't just take my word for it, though. It's got plenty of other fans. 

"I am 60, a redhead with temperamental/sensitive skin, and have read that people can get worse rosacea after menopause. I have had so much trouble with my skin, and this moisturizer is a face-saver! This product has just enough salicylic acid in it to keep my skin clear and not so much as to cause dryness or peeling. It has not caused breakouts and seems to moisturize very well," wrote one customer. 

While another said, "No oil, very light. Should be used daily."

*Adds thirty to the basket.*

Seriously, though, this is a beauty bargain not to be missed – so snap it up here before it goes. 

What's on your Amazon Prime Day wish list?
