Garnier Skin Active Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream for Normal/Combo Skin


Smells nice but it’s just ok
My boyfriend bought it for me. I have pretty dry skin so I know it wasn’t targeted toward me. However I was using it in the summertime. It was just ok I used it just to finish it but maybe it would be better if you had oily or combo skin. It smells really floral with avocado.
Hydration Boost
This refreshing gel-cream delivers an instant burst of hydration, leaving my skin feeling soft, supple, and revitalized. I love its lightweight texture, which absorbs quickly without leaving any greasy residue. The formula is enriched with antioxidant fruit water and vitamin E, providing long-lasting moisture and protecting my skin against environmental stressors. Whether I'm dealing with dry patches or oily areas, this gel-cream balances and hydrates my skin, giving me a healthy, radiant complexion.
Far too sticky
This was not a great experience for me. Normally I love this brand but for me this was a fail. It has an odd smell and it never seems to completely absorb. It remains sticky and tacky. It provided minimal hydration as well.
Is ok
This is just ok moisturizer for me. It hasn’t really done much for my skin. The product is very sticky and doesn’t feel like it’s providing any hydration. I have used the whole jar just to make sure I test to see if it was doing anything but even at the end. I didn’t feel any difference at all.
I have used this moisturizer in the summertime for several years and love the refreshing and cool effect it has on the skin. An important feature I look for in a facial moisturizer is absorption quality and how it leaves the surface of the skin feeling. If a product is sticky that deal breaker. This product does not do that. The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is because the jar is so small. It’s not the best value for the cost but it is worth it. I would recommend this to a friend.
The best
I’ve tried tons of brands and this one takes me back every time. It keeps my face moisturized without a greasy feeling all. Lasts a decent amount of time because you only need a small amountzp
So good
I LOVE this moisturizer. It doesn’t leave any sticky residue, and doesn’t feel heavy like so many others. My skin feels so soft afterwards.
Garnier Moisture Rescue
This moisturizer is so hydrating and smooth and leaves my skin feeling absolutely fantastic. I seen results in 2 days, my skin wasn't feeling so dry anymore
Helped at First
When I first purchased this, I felt it did help my skin a lot. I felt relief from my skin dryness, and the gel actually feels soothing and fresh upon application. Long term, I don't think it was helpful. My skin didn't stay moisturized, and my skin didn't feel hydrated.
Dupe for Neutrogena
So I got this to try instead of the Neutrogena hydro boost. I can say it gives the same results but costs a lot less. It wears well under makeup and you can still use a makeup primer on top of you want. Put it on while skin is still damp for best results. Only gave 4 stars because my skin is Very dry and I still have to use a eye cream when using this because I'm 48 and nothing is moisturizing enough on my skin to use alone.
Garnier Skin Active Moisture Rescue
I love the Garnier Skin Active Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream. It has been very gentle on my facial skin. I like that it is lightweight and absorbs into my skin quickly. It's also oil free which is a great benefit to have. Since I have been using the Garnier Skin Active Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream my facial skin feels softer and looks smoother. After I use it my face feels so refreshed! It's very moisturizing.
Not impressed
This is not as good as I was hoping it would be. It's nothing special.
nice feel
I really like the gel creams and this garnier moisture rescue was light and moisturizing at the same time
not great for me
The texture of the gel-cream was lightweight and refreshing, which I appreciated. However, I found it to be lacking in terms of providing long-lasting moisture. It seemed to disappear quickly, leaving my skin feeling dry again within a short period of time. Additionally, I noticed that it didn't fully absorb into my skin, leaving a slightly sticky residue behind.
Moisture Rescue
Garnier refreshing gel cream is amazing, love to apply it ih the summer days when humidity is high, my skin is super "thirsty" for care, this gel is a gem and really works well after you being in the sun, my skin soaks quick and restores to normal
