Gel vs cream

Why do you think there are so many moisturizers or sleeping masks coming out or being offered in gel or gel-cream textures vs cream?

For oily skin people who enjoy lightweight moisturizers, gel vehicle is a miracle. I live in a hot and humid country and creams tend to suffocate my skin more so gel moisturizers are my go to.

Gel or gel creams are generally more lightweight than creams. Oily-combination skin people tend to enjoy these more. As a dry skin person, I enjoy both, but creams tend to do a better job on retaining the moisture on my skin 💖
