Q: I noticed there is also a gel instead of a cream, what is the difference?
A: These skin products are roughly the same and serve the same purpose. The subtle difference is that the gel contains more alcohol and can make the skin dry, while the cream has less alcohol and is a little more gentle on the skin. Try using the gel during summer seasons and the cream during winter colder seasons for optimum skin effect.
