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

      My skin had recently changed and was so dry, red and flaky to the point my makeup would literally flake of of my face during the day. I put this on after a shower and it is magical! I let it absorb before I put my primer on and my skin started to improve after 1 week of use.

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

        I have awfully dry skin and I would benefit a lot more if I was better about my skin care routine on days I don't wear make up, but even with how bad I am with that, I still manage to see the benefits of this. The most important to me is that it hydrates the skin on my nose so well. I've lived so long with a nose that I called "flakey" but when I use this I don't have that problem!

          Perfect for instant hydration

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

          I was originally drawn to this product by consistency and packaging of the product. I had previously been using a much more expensive product with a similar texture when I stumbled upon this bad boy. I have naturally dry skin and this product provides me with and extra boost of instant moisture that soaks into my skin immediately and does not sit on top of my skin like some other moisturizers, at a third of the cost of my previous product. My two complaints are: 1.) This product gives me instant hydrated skin, but doesn't last as long as a creamier moisturizer would, and 2.) it's a little thin and a bit watery-er than I like, but as long as you follow the 'little goes a long way' rule, you won't make a mess.

            makes makeup flaky

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

            Good moisturizer, I like to use it when my skin has broken out, it helps to calm it. However, it makes a very bad base for makeup. Makeup flakes and looks very bad.
