    Comments about Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin:

    I'm obsessed with this! Nothing moisturizes my face like this product. It smells a little citrusy and tingles a little when I apply it on my face. The packaging is great. Its just kinda pricey in my opinion.

      Better for Oily or Combo Skin

      By Cheyenne J.

      from Sioux City, Iowa

      Comments about Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin:

      I bought this as an alternative to my favorite high-end gel moisturizer. I have oily skin so I tend to favor that type of moisturizer over traditional ones, and this does the trick for me! I did not know about the oily skin version when I purchased this, but I feel like this product is perfect for people who are not bone dry. Their claim that this is best for dry skinned people does not seem accurate, but for my needs, this product is great. It feels great when applied right after a hot shower and is light enough for day use when used sparingly. I'm a big fan and will purchase this again.

        Comments about Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin:

        This product is not great, at all. It sits on top of the skin rather than absorbing, and feels rather cold and goopy on the skin. It also leaves my skin really red all day after applying it. It has no effect on my dry flaky patches, and I think it's even making me break out.

        Not great

        By LeAnnC

        from Oregon

        Comments about Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin:

        I have really dry and sensitive skin and I'm always looking for great products to help balance and hydrate my skin. I was looking forward to trying this, but was pretty disappointed. It's a gel product that has a very plastic-like feeling to it. Once applied to the face, it feels like it sits on top of the skin rather than soaking in and hydrating. Once it dries it leaves a weird, slightly sticky feeling which was uncomfortable. It made my skin itch and slightly burned. I used it several times just to see if my opinion would change, but I got the same reaction every time. Will not be repurchasing or using this product again.

          Comments about Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin:

          I was hoping this would be a cheaper version of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream. It is not. It's sticky when it dries and not nearly as moisturizing. I guess it's refreshing and it feels nice going on, but I wouldn't say it's lightweight and it's not for skin that's very dry at all.

          Comments about Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin:

          This product is alight for $7, but you will need something else if you have very dry skin like me. This will work for you if you like light moisturizers like CeraVe / Cetaphil. But my dry patches came out after using this, meaning it didn't absorb well and did not do anything for my extremely dry skin. If you have normal skin, this will be great for you.

          Love it!

          Comments about Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin:

          Bought this a few months ago because my face has always been dry, I would use it here and there and liked it, however now that it's creeping into winter my skin is very dry and I'm trying to use it every day, and I see a huge difference! I can tell when I go too long without it! Works AMAZING for the price. The only caveat is that it's not something that I think should be worn under makeup, so only use it at night or on days where I'm not planning on being out much!

            Comments about Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin:

            I must have this every day & night for my very dry skin. I live in a hot humid climate and this literally plumps up my skin. I do notice a big differance when I do not use this for a week, so I make sure I always have an extra on reserve! It's that good! I do pair this with Say Yes to Coconut Hydrate and Restore Overnight Creme. The 2 are a must have for me. If you have dry parched skin then this is for you! It also has a very cooling effect when applied to skin. It would be nice if it lasted longer. When my skin was serisouly dehydrated I did use the one by Neutrogena. That one does last longer but is more expensive. I don't find Neutrogena to be necessary anymore since I make it a point to use this daily.
