Most Helpful Positive Review My searching journey has been worth it!!
Thank you, as a woman in her 50's, well ok, 56, as I aged I noticed my skin was changing. I noticed more wrinkles, not something I wanted to notice. I use Garnier products now and no others, the reason is simple, when you find a product for your skin or hair "Stick with it" when I purchased your "Rescue Gel Cream" immediatly I noticed results. Results are a very important word for me, as women we spend alot of time and money on products as we age hoping they will keep the clock STOPPED, when I added your Rescue Gel cream to my other Garnier products, that was it. I told two friends that are my age and we went out and they purchased the Gel Cream. Both friends immediatly noticed a positive change in my face and asked me, Pat, what are you doing different?? Nothing else needed to be said, after two days one friend called and said, WOW, my skin is so soft and my "agie wrinkles", thats what she calles her wrinkles, are not as noticable, my other friend called and said, Pat from now on stop being stingy when you find new products especially these types of products, if you went into their homes you will find the same products as mine, ALL Garnier, thank you for rescuing my "Agie Wrinkles", funny when I think of how many times I walked by your products in the beginning and then purchased two products, I never looked back. There are products out there that are very expensive, I am now on disability and now I have to count my pennies, your products do not hurt your pocketbook and most importantly do exactly what they say. I look pretty darn good for my age.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good for Oily Skin
This product is amazing for oily skin types, as are most gel moisturizers due to their light consistency that does not block pores. However, I have normal skin and found that after about a month of using this moisturizer my skin appeared more on the oily side than normal for me. The smell is not the most pleasant; I would describe it as similar to that of a chlorine pool, but it isn't a very strong scent and I found that I got used to it quickly. Given that fragrances generally have a negative impact on your skin anyways and serve no real benefit, the scent is definitely something the product could have done without. As someone who is also on the more cautious side about what ingredients I put on my skin, I am a bit alarmed by the amount of toxic ingredients found in this moisturizer. However, if you are someone who doesn't care about which ingredients are in your skincare products, I would certainly recommend this product if you have oily skin. As for other skin types, although this product feels amazing to apply, there is probably a better option for you.

Mrs Sunshine from SoCal
This product has the worst smell. The culprit to the smell is the huge gob of glue that holds the piece inside of the lid. I kid you not, the piece of glue inside is about the same size as the product you get. Definitely not good for your skin.
Think about it; chemicals from the glue leeching into a gel that you rub on your face, no thanks.
Will buy again and again

Not heavy or sticky. Doesn't clog pores.
My favorite moisturizer!!
Kylie from Oklahoma
I started using this product about three months ago. It was the first moisturizer I had ever used. I applied it day and night after washing my face. I now only use it in the morning as I have switched to a different product for night. Within the first few days of using this product, my skin seemed less oily, softer, and more awake. I usually don't stick with a product or routine that long but since this left my skin so nice I have continued using this product every day for the past three (maybe four!) months. Before trying this product my skin was mostly oily on t-zone and looked peely under makeup, even with exfoliating. This product helped with all of those problems. Although, I will say the peely skin looked better but it was not solved. Overall, I highly recommend this product!!!
Great deep moisturizer on a budget
Elle from OK
This is a fantastic option for deep moisture without any greasiness. I use it as a night cream and wake up to plump, radiant skin.
sunshine from socal
I cannot handle the smell. It has somewhat of a plastic smell with a slight fruit variation. Will be returning :-(
Was not sure at first
AnjiP from Hammond IN
Had to switch moisturizer since Ulta no longer carries the one I was using. Have to say, wish I had switched sooner. Glides on, dries quick, not sticky or greasy. Doesn't feel heavy either.
So lightweight and moisturizing
Mo from USA
This is probably the most lightweight moisturizer that I've ever used. It doesn't feel greasy AT ALL and a little goes a long way, so this moisturizer will last for a while. I have a really oily t-zone and am really dry around my lips and cheeks. It hydrates both areas without making me look greasy.
The only aspect I didn't like was the fragrance. It was unnecessarily strong.
Molly from Atlanta
Leaves my skin so dewy and hydrated. I'm obsessed.

good for day or night time use
Worst mistake 100%
Magdalene from Chicago IL
If your skin is even slightly sensitive skip this. I have mild rosacea but overall sensitive skin & this has royally messed my face up. I got about 1/3 through the jar & noticed that my skin was flaking off & my makeup wasn't sitting like it usually does. This was the only new product I was trying so I knew this was the culprit. I tossed this pretty quickly after that but apparently not quick enough. I'm about 2 weeks out from when I first threw this away & my skin is still so angry. I have to wear a full face makeup for work so there's only so much I can do but my skin remains inflamed, over-sensitized & blotchy. If you have a similar skin type don't make the same mistake I did. 🙅♀️
NOT for sensitive skin
Magatron128 from Chicago, IL
Not a fan of the added fragrance or dye. Absolutely not for sensitive skin. I have mild rosacea, and rarely get flare ups although it is a risk with every new product I try. This caused my skin to flare up and stay inflamed for days. I tried to make this work with a couple last-ditch efforts before I gave up & tossed it. My skin is left inflamed, itchy & blotchy. If you have a similar skin type stay away.
Magpie from lewis center,ohio
I have been using this product since the weather gotten warmer where I live. I want something light for the hot weather. In the winter I use a thicker one. This product is amazing. I have normal to oily skin in the summer times and it kept my face so soft and refreshing. It also makes putting makeup on so much easier. You don't have to use to much at a time since little goes a long way. I will continue to buy this.
Made my skin flake
LA from Madison, WI
After living in Wisconsin for several years and advancing from my early to late twenties, my skin changed from oily to dry. I bought this moisturizer because I was on a budget and saw the positive reviews. However, my skin got worse - chunks of dead, flaky skin started coming off my forward, and then I would add more of this moisturizer which would burn because my skin was raw. I started doing some ingredient research and realized that the third ingredient is denatured alcohol. Let me reiterate - the third ingredient is a dehydrating, drying ingredient. I do not recommend this if you have dry skin - it will get worse.
Sam from Mississippi
I have been using this for a few years now, and one of the few that is extremely light, non-greasy, and doesn't irritate my skin after exfoliating.
Marra from 10963 W 200 S
It us great it helps moisturize and it's not thick on face when use it.
Not sure yet
Jen from WA
It isn't a dupe for Tatcha's water cream...smell is a little off putting. It does moisturize but not sure if it works as well I had hoped it would.
Works but smells weird
Taliaaa from New York, NY
I have the pink version of this and I have been looking for this green one for so long. So I was happy when Ulta suddenly had it in stock. It has a subtle cucumber smell but doesn't smell really well. Anyway, the product moisturizers your face lightly. It may feel like nothing is on your face since it soaks into the skin quickly but when you sorta "rub your face" you will feel the product. Will buy again.
Oldie But Goodie
JJTHEJETPLANE from Michigan
I've been using this moisturizer off and on for the past 4 years never leave me feeling greasy or heavy or shiny and I have combination skin.
Love this stuff!
JNoinDC from Alexandria, VA
I have super sensitive skin (think not being able to wear those sheet masks that are all the rage because it burns my skin) so I am always skeptical of new face products. I was experiencing some rare dry patches on my skin and decided to try it. I do not think it has a smell and a little dab will do ya! Healed those patches in three days and nothing since. I use it under my moisturizer. A+ stuff.
Not for me
Skylar from United States
Its really nice when you first apply it. It does feel cool. Then it started to feel sticky and left my face oily
Dries My Skin
Emma from NJ
Unfortunately this product did not work for me. I have oily skin, but this completely stripped my skin dry. It didn't work for me but it may work for somebody else.
Where my dry friends at?
D. Casanova from Dallas, TX
This is the only product that saved me from a dry and flaky nose. I absolutely love this product!
It has a faint clean smell.
The texture is very nice and airy.
Great for combination skin
Nick from WI
I have combination skin, and can't use anything oil based without breakouts. This product really provides great hydration without leaving a film or feeling greasy. Use day and night after washing my face.
Cushu from Ventura CA
I been using this product for years and recently I never find it at target but walked in to Ulta and they had it j am so happy. Makes my face skin feel so good and chilly and it dosen't cost that much but it is small. Wears great under my makeup
Val from Chicago
This is my second time buying this and it's amazing on the skin! And affordable for sure!!!
