Very Hydrating!

By KR

from Seattle

Comments about Garnier SkinActive Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea:

I personally love this moisturizer. It has a refreshing smell and makes my skin feel so soft and supple.
This product may not work for every single skin type, but for someone who is acne prone with oily skin, it has made a great difference in my skin. Garnier has made three different types of this moisturizer so make sure to choose the type that would benefit your skin the most.

I like it only at night

By Rose

from Spokane

Comments about Garnier SkinActive Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea:

I know it says 3-in-1, I only would use at a 2-in-1 though. I really enjoy it as a night time moisturizer/mask when my skin needs a bit more of a boost and less mattifying. I'm just wondering how long it will take me to go through this jar since I don't need very much of it for my face.

u need to consider

By Laina

from 99711

Comments about Garnier SkinActive Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea:

So let's start out with if you're new to moisturizers, reviews aren't gonna be accurate. Skin is so picky and I've tried the most hyped up (drugstore) moisturizers and they broke me out (hydro boost). My skin is very picky for whatever reason, I have oily skin and some moisturizers break me out after a month of use. This one hasn't and I'm very surprised, I haven't tried any others from the line but this is really good on my acne too. If you're using drugstore moisturizers you gotta play around for a bit, and if none work for you I'd give this one a try. Good luck girl

  • Moisturizes Well

Cons

  • Causes breakouts

Best Uses

  • Daily Use
  • Deep Moisturization

Comments about Garnier SkinActive Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea:

First impression was positive. I love the texture and it doesn't leave my oily skin too greasy. After using a few times a week, I've started breaking out. I stopped using for a week and my skin bounced back. I used it as a mask last night and completely removed it and woke up with new breakouts and redness this morning! I hate to throw it away because you get a lot of product foe the price. My akin is not sensitive and I have never broken out from a moisturizer before. I prefer the gel cream.

strange residues?

By luz

from Ohio

Comments about Garnier SkinActive Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea:

This moisturizer feels greasy when I first apply it, but it does absorb well within 5-10 minutes. I have used it for a few days now. I do not think this is well suited for sensitive skin since it did give me a strange red patch around my cheek area the first time using it. When I wore this moisturizer and rubbed my face, there would be peeling of what I assume to be residue left over from the moisturizer? It is quite strange and usually a cloudy white/gray tint when it comes off. I first noticed this around my jawline when I was rubbing my finger tips around that area. Yesterday the same thing happened on my forehead. Maybe I am applying more than needed. I was wondering if it had something to do with the "mattifying" effect of this moisturizer

    NOT Skin Sensitive

    By abby

    from Visalia, CA

    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea:

    cons: This product is NOT skin sensitive. It burned every time I tried it. I gave it two months even with the burning sensation. It also has a very STRONG perfume smell. Which was one of the reasons why I got it because it said it was natural. The smell is definitely not natural.
    It does not go well with makeup primers. I tried using my smashbox primers, Stella primer, and Rimmel matte primer. It made my primers roll up and fall off. It only did well with serum primers. My IT cosmetics no. 50 serum primer worked well with it.
    I suggest that if you do wear makeup and do your makeup in the mornings not to use this. It works well as a night moisturizer. It did help with the oilyness but it did break me out in tiny pimples at first use. My guess would be the chemicals in the perfume. My skin type is oily and acne prone.
    pro: You get a lot of product for the price and a little does go a long way. And it's easy to apply does not dry too fast but does feel a little sticky while waiting for it to dry.

      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea:

      I bought this stuff when it first came out and there weren't any reviews of it online that I could find. I never usually buy anything beauty/skincare wise without reading reviews but this I took a chance on and I'm SO glad I did! The smell is amazing, very fresh! The tub is massive so it will last you FOREVER as a little goes a long and there is so much more of it! I use a lighter amount during the day under my makeup *I have oily skin especially in my TZone and this doesn't make me oily* and I use a little more at night for some extra moisture. My skin feels SO soft and always so refreshed every time I put this on. I will definitely be repurchasing this whenever I run out (which will be a very long time from now lol) Love it!! Oh and it also feels pretty soothing on my skin especially around my pesky, painful zits.

        Comments about Garnier SkinActive Balancing 3-in-1 Face Moisturizer with Green Tea:

        I just bought this product after reading the amazing reviews on the Garnier website. When I opened my package from Ulta, I was so surprised to see the size of this container. There is so much moisturizer in the container(enough to last me AT LEAST 6 months). The moisturizer is so smooth going on and makes your skin feel so soft. Also, I have combination skin and it did not leave me feeling/looking greasy. Even using it under my makeup worked amazing and I didn't get shiny all day(I use the Tarte Shape Tape as a foundation with MAC Studio Fix as a setting powder). Overall such an amazing product and I absolutely recommend buying it !!

          Is this non-comogenic? I noticed soybean oil is listed as an ingredient,however it's lower on the list. I'm hoping it won't clog pores.
