This season, Pharrell is giving you the gift of dewy skin. Recently, the multifaceted mogul launched the 7D Retrograde Gel Cleanser and 7D Mystifying Moisturizer because, well, he’s “a gel guy.” In an e-mail interview with ELLE.com, Pharrell shares, “I love how these products make my skin feel.

It’s truly for everyone—and let’s be honest: Who doesn’t want skin like Pharrell?
