WONDERFUL

By Logan

from Indiana

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

I absolutely love this moisturizer! I have super dry skin and was at first super apprehensive about this because I had never used a gel-cream moisturizer before but I honestly feel in love with it. It instantly gave my skins moisture and makes my skin feel so much healthier. So glad I decided to try this product and I honestly make everyone I know with dry skin try it.

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

      I use it day and night. I got a sample of the dr. Jart hydro fuse which is also a gel- moisture, but the price tag was a bit much for my current budget, but then I tried this - which for the money is worth it!! Works very well with my dry skin for a quarter of the price of the dr. Jart! I'm so happy with my purchase and it smells nice.

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

                I wanted a moisturizer to add to my routine. I'm pretty picky about ingredients but I thought I'd buy this on a whim instead of doing lots of research prior. Well, I have to say I really do like it. Note, it's just a moisturizer. I'm not looking for any special things with it other than to moisturize. I'll have an occasional breakout but have pretty clear skin. I do get oily in my t-zone but this still works. It's lightweight and feels like your skin immediately drinks this up.
