      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream:

      I love this gel! It's great for my oily skin. Replenishes moisture after a shower, without feeling heavy or greasy on my skin. PERFECT for use before applying makeup - it absorbs quickly and completely and leaves skin feeling smooth, supple, and beautifully prepped for primer and foundation. It also plays very nicely with other products. I tend to use this most often after toner and serum, but before night cream and facial oil. It smells wonderful, too. My only complaint is the packaging. This jar can make it difficult to use every last bit of the product. However, I will definitely be purchasing this product again. It has easily become a favorite and a staple in my skincare routine. Highly recommend!

          I absolutely love this moisturizer. Yes for some, it may be a little heavy, but this saved my skin after a week outside in a desert area. I also absolutely love to use this on any sunburn. It helps it heal very well, which is great because my nose burns often.

          Does absolutley nothing it says it does, left my face 10x more dry than when I used it. Was said to be good for combination skin but seems to only work on oily skin. Complete waste of money and time.

                Is this product good for nightly use on acne-prone skin? Is this product non-comedogenic, and will the alcohol in the product dry out or irritate my skin?

                  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.
