    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.

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

      I learned and realized recently that moisturizers (especially in the winter) are key to balancing out your skins natural oil productions (and therefore stopping acne). I had been using a mary kay face lotion that was oil free and my favorite, but I love this product! Its a moisturizing gel so its very jiggly light and fun, and moisturizes great! Its great for morning and night use, but feels the best putting on after a shower or face mask. My acne has gotten a lot better after using this product because now my skin has moisture from something other than its own oils!

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

      I have extremely dry skin, like flakey dry skin like to the point where I have to exfoliate daily. After a couple days of using this my skin looks amazing, no more flakes or dry patches. I will continue to buy this until they stop making it!

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

        I have bought 5 jars of this, I have extremely dry cheeks but I also have an extremely oily t-zone. Even though this says it is for dry skin it doesn't make my oil worse. Also I've always had these little dry bumps on my arms and cheeks that I have always been told there is nothing to help them, and since using this gel moisturizer I hardly have them on my face anymore and it has to be this moisturizer because it is the only thing I've changed in my skin care. Basically, I am in love with this!!!!!

            On The Fence

            By Debbie

            from Citrus Heights

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

            So I have been using this product for the last several days. I am not sure how I feel about this one. I usually ha e pretty normal skin except in the winter it gets somewhat dry. I do not usually have sensitive skin nor do I ever have texture. But since using this I have notice a little bit of texture and I feel like I am breaking out a bit.
            Honestly I think I would rather use either Origins Nitamins or use Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel. neither one of those causes my skin to get texture or breakout. I will give this another few days but so far not at all impressed.
