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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Amazing product and very affordable
If you have sensitive skin: beware
average girl w/ dry and sensitive skin from Chicago, IL
I noticed that my skin developed some redness and irritation using this product. I stopped using it once I noticed small red bumps all over my forehead, cheeks, and undereyes. I didn't find it moisturizing at all either. I switched to Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer a couple of days ago and my skin is noticeable healthier. No more rash!
HH from NJ
This is such a great lightweight moisturizer, especially for the price! I use it before my primer in the morning. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate me at all. I love it! Will keep buying!
Bryanna from Yakima, WA
I really like the smell and texture of this product but I don't find it to be very hydrating. It's not a terrible purchases but I wouldn't buy it again.
This is amazing!!
Sim from Chicago
This is a great water gel cream moisturizer & has definitely repaired my moisture barrier in a week! I am a young 20 year old with skin that is still healing from my hormonal break out scars & hyper-pigmentation. I have tried the Neutrogena water gel that they are so famous for, but did not see or feel any difference. Within a week of using Garnier, my spots have slightly faded & my skin feels very plump & no as tight anymore! I love it & will buy again.
Great lotion for dry skin
Vanessa F. from Moorpark, CA
When you have dry skin sometimes a thick lotion feels like you're putting on cement. This lotion is so light it gets absorbed quickly but moisturizes wonderfully. It feels like a cool breath of fresh air.
Dried out my skin
Maggs from Missouri
I was really excited to get this product. The packaging is so cute, it has a pleasant fresh smell (although you can smell the alcohol, which probably should have been my first red flag), and you'd think with the name "moisture rescue" it would have been great. I applied about a dime sized dollop both morning and evening after cleansing, toning, and using my serums. The initial feeling is really nice! It's refreshing and feels like you're penetrating the skin without being heavy. My skin honestly slurped it right up. I have combination skin and thought considering all the super hydrating products I use before applying moisturizer I should stick with a normal/combo skin formula. My skin always felt super smooth and soft after application.
Fast forward a few days, and my skin is starting to dry out. I up my layers of hydration again and add a second layer of this products to do double duty... nah. My skin started flaking and I knew I had to give this formula a pass. I haven't tried the one for dry skin, but honestly I've learned a lot about skincare since buying this brand's line of formulations and there are cheaper products with better ingredients out there. I think this will work nicely for some of you, but only if you have extremely oily skin. Otherwise I'd skip. I'm still trying to clean up the extreme dry patches this moisturizer left with me and it's been over a week.
