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


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
Great moisturizer!
I picked this up when the store was out of my regular moisturizer and I must say I was amazingly surprised. This gel is lightweight and very moisturizing. Gives your skin a great glow and works well under makeup. I was pleasantly surprised by how this lightweight gel could do hydrating. It can definitely be used in the winter as moisturizer for normal to oily skin.
Cools Your Skin
I love the way this moisturizing gel feels! It’s cool and soaks right into my skin with no residue, no stickiness, no shine, just clean soft skin. It’s great to use any time of the year but especially in the summer because it feels cool. For an added chill, place product in the refrigerator before use.
Hydration in a bottle
I loved this product as it hydrated my face without being so thick. I feel like nothing was even on my face, yet it felt silky soft. The smell was very subtle but it was good. Make sure you let it dry all the way before you put on makeup or it have a slight sticky feeling to it. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.
The glow!
I must brag on the glow that this Garnier gives my skin. I use it alone and under my makeup. It doesn't make my skin oily or greasy. The formula is light and easily absorbs into my skin. Love this one!
Love this it's so refreshing
This is my go to moisturizing gel. I absolutely love this gel. It's so light and yet moisturizing at the same time. I love how it makes my skin look and feel. I would definitely recommend this.
