      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream:

      I grabbed this stuff on whim trying to find something that would suit my dry skin that would be oily at the end of the day. This stuff totally does the trick! Most moisturizers leave me looking oily after noon. I tiny little dab goes a long way. I love the gel formula- it's not greasy and absorbs quickly. It makes my skin feel great. I apply it at night after cleansing and before I apply makeup in the morning. I just wish it it had SPF

        I am new to the world of skin care. I read that a good moisturizer is key to a healthy, clean face, so I decided to give this product a whirl because it was cheap and attractive. I am not at all dissapointed! After I wash my face, applying this feels heavenly, it's like bringing the life back to my skin. It makes my face feel super smooth, and it absorbs very quickly.

          Comments about Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream:

          I have combo skin so finding something that would moisturize without making me oily has been tricky. This stuff is so amazing. I call it my goop, because it does have a weird texture, but omg. Goes on so well and absorbs right away, my skin feels super fresh when I use it. I've definitely noticed a reduction in oiliness since I've started using it, and my skin glows and feels so healthy.

            I'm the most oily person ever !!! It's ridiculous , I didn't understand why :( . I wash my face everyday with an Oil free washer, and every morning I'll wake up looking like a glaze donut . So , I did my own little research & I decided I needed something light on my oily skin that would help hydrate .Let me tell you!!! I've used this for 3 days, morning & night ,after my face wash ,and I have NOT peek no oil coming through whatsoever !! Like I'm super amazed like wow!! The container is small but a little goes along way for me .

            I had really high hopes for this product! :( As soon as I applied it to my face it stung sooooo bad and made my face turn read. In some areas it started to get really itchy and the burning sensation was unbearable!!! I will be returning this first thing tomorrow. :(

                    Hello! This product is Dermatologist tested so it is safe on acne-prone skin. This product is also non-comedogenic and the alcohol should not dry out your skin because it is a lightweight gel-cream formula that is meant to moisturize your skin. This product should not cause any irritation on your skin either. In the event that does happen, we recommend you give us a call at our toll-free number because we take reactions very seriously and would like to help you the best way we can.

                    A:

                    To combat dry skin and fine lines we recommend using the Ultra Lift Anti Wrinkle Firming Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 in the AM and the Ultra Lift Anti Wrinkle Firming NIght Cream for PM. Don't forget the delicate eye area! Use the Ultra Lift Anti Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream both AM and PM to moisturize, treat and reduce the puffiness unique to the eye area.
