    It's doesn't make my oily skin shiny or greasy...it moisturized deep quickly, doesn't sit on top and feel heavy. Makes my skin feel soft and smooth...better than clinique's equivalent that I used to use... and much cheaper!

            I purchased this product to help combat my oily skin. This is a game changer, by this time of the day I'd have an oil slick on my face, but no today because I've switched to this amazing product. I feel the moisture I get with this is wonderful.

                  Absolutely Amazing

                  Comments about Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream:

                  I bought this about a month ago. I was a little hesitant at first because most moisturizers I use cost almost $40 because I have really dry skin and eczema. To my surprise, this moisturizer was incredible and made my skin soft and took away the dryness. It has great coverage so I don't even have to use a lot of it so it lasts for a long time. I would recommend this product over and over.

                    I bought this hoping the oil production in my skin would minimize but it did the complete opposite. I have always battled with oily skin and nothing seems to work for me no matter how hard I try.

                      Hi. What is the difference between this and the Moisture Bomb gel? I have oily skin and head a gel formula would be good, but not sure which to go for. I would like to not be extra greasy after moisturizing. :)

                        Hello! This product is Dermatologist tested so it is safe on acne-prone skin. This product is also non-comedogenic and the alcohol should not dry out your skin because it is a lightweight gel-cream formula that is meant to moisturize your skin. This product should not cause any irritation on your skin either. In the event that does happen, we recommend you give us a call at our toll-free number because we take reactions very seriously and would like to help you the best way we can.

                        A:

                        To combat dry skin and fine lines we recommend using the Ultra Lift Anti Wrinkle Firming Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 in the AM and the Ultra Lift Anti Wrinkle Firming NIght Cream for PM. Don't forget the delicate eye area! Use the Ultra Lift Anti Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream both AM and PM to moisturize, treat and reduce the puffiness unique to the eye area.
