Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream | A #Review


Hey friends! As you may or may not know, I am obsessed with skin care products. I love trying out new items on the market and taking time out to pamper my skin. My daily routine isn’t super elaborate, but it is filled with goodies that make me AND my skin feel good.

Recently I was in Wal-mart for a few groceries and found myself in the skin care aisle (I have a problem). I’m a huge fan of the bright green that Garnier uses in their packaging, so their products always catch my attention in the aisles. I picked up the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream for dry skin and figured it was worth a shot. After testing it out, I have to say despite it’s mouthful of a name, it’s an amazing moisturizer. 20171025_154536-1

Before this, I had never tried any type of gel moisturizer, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. My first time rubbing the product between my fingers I thought, “there’s no way this is going to work!” It felt too thin, like it would absorb right into my skin before I even left the house. I put it on anyway and was very pleased with how it performed over time.

20171025_155451-1The formula is definitley gel like and is super lightweight on the skin. Gel-cream is the perfect description because once you start massaging it on to your face, it starts to feel a bit like a cream. It’s not greasy and very moisturizing. I’ve used this in the morning (and a few times at night) everyday for the past three weeks now and it’s definitely a great addition to my skin care routine. My face feels softer, my dry patches are clearing up, and not to mention the product smells so good!

Has a slight tint of pink, but blends out completely and dries clear. S/O to my bf for letting me use his hand!

There are two formulas of the Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream, one for Normal/Combo Skin and one for Dry Skin. I picked up the Dry Skin formula so I’ll list the details for it down below:

  • Contains vitamin C & fruit water
  • Antioxidant complex
  • Soothes dry skin
  • 24 hour moisture
  • Oil-free
  • 1.7 oz

All in all I think the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream is a wonderful moisturizer. It’s lightweight, smells great, and does a great job at keeping my skin moisturized. I’m so glad I purchased it. I’m in love with the Micellar Water and sheet masks already so I look forward to trying more skin care products from Garnier!

What moisturizer do you use? Let me know in the comments below. Talk to you later, friends!

  1. Thanks for the amazing review! I’ve been on the hunt looking for a face moisturizer for super sensitive combo skin type. I used rose essential oil on my skin and it’s pretty cool but I’m so curious about trying Garnier 🙂


  2. Oh I definitely want to try this! I’ve been having some trouble with dry skin on my face recently and I’m almost out of the Garnier Rose Water moisturiser that I use. I think I’ll definitely try this – with the weather being colder I’ll definitely be needing to moisturise more frequently as my skin is prone to dryness.

  3. Amazing review! I love it especially when skin related ones are cause it helps me a lot. I think with the cold weather coming in I will have to check this product out since it really seems to dry out my skin. Thank you! x
