I use this product every day after taking a bath and before going to bed, especially when I have sun burn. It does a great job in helping my skin heal faster and making it smooth and soft. However, continued use is a must to completely make your skin smooth.

      I use this product after I shower at night, in the mornings after I wash my face, whenever my face feels a little dry! It's so light, smells like cucumbers, absorbs well, and keeps my face from getting extremely oily, especially in the summertime.

      I'll NEVER be dry again!

      By Just_Cyn

      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream:

      All of a sudden I had become the victim of dry, patchy and flaky skin. I'm not sure why however, I knew I had to do something about it. I always thought that Garnier was ALL ABOUT HAIR care. I saw this Micellar water commercial a million times and decided to try it out. Prior, I was using witch hazel and scrubs to clean my face (uhg, scrubs, really?) anyway. I proceeded to Walgreen's where I purchased the Micellar water and the moisture rescue refreshing gel-cream. What a fantastic duo. I saw a HUGE difference after the first use. I am utterly impressed. no more dry patches. No more flakes! I''m a happy girl :)

      Terrible breakouts.

      By Bre C

      from Canada

      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream:

      I bought this moisturizer and used it for about 2 weeks before I started having horrible breakouts everywhere. I have NEVER had acne on my forehead before using this product and now it's covered. To this day which is about a month later I'm still trying to get rid of the damage it has done. Probably all due to the fact that the product contains a ton of alcohol.

        Comments about Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream:

        I really like this product. At first, I was a little turned off by the smell. It smells a bit like cucumbers or something but that cucumber smell is very faint. It doesn't smell bad but it's not my favorite smell. It's super lightweight and refreshing. Doesn't have any creamy or oily residue which I love since I have oily skin. Overall, works really, really well. Wish it came in a bigger container with more but since I only use this for my face and neck a little goes a long way.

            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?

              A:

              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.
