Review: Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream For Dry Skin
The other day I ran out of my Body Shop Tea Tree Oil moisturizer. I have been using that one for years, but recently found that it wasn't moisturizing enough. I think as I get older my skin is getting drier. It also doesn't really need the acne fighting benefits of tea tree oil anymore. I was going to go back to the body shop and see if they had anything else I might like to replace it with, but when I went it was insanely packed and it is a very tiny store, so I went to the drug store instead. I finally decided on this stuff because it was one of the only things that didn't say anti-wrinkle on it. I don't normally like buying those kinds of products since I'm not wrinkly yet. None of them say wrinkle prevention on them, so I don't see the point.
I got this on sale for about 11 bucks, but it is normally a few dollars more. For the price you get 50 grams of product. There were two versions of this: a normal one and the one for dry skin. I decided to get the dry skin one since dry patches have been a problem for me lately. It comes in a glass jar with a white screw on lid. The actual cream is a weird baby pink gel. It smells mildly fruity and not at all artificial to me. I think it is mostly like grapes. I have had a few other Garnier face products and I think they all smell basically the same. The smell does hang around for a little while, but I really don't mind it.
As far as whether or not this stuff works, I think it is great! When you first rub it into the skin it turns sort of watery but it soaks in fairly quick. It leaves my skin feeling very soft and smooth. When I go to bed I put a thicker layer of it on my face and when I wake up my face even seems a bit more plump!
Overall I am very impressed with this moisturizer. It does a great job, especially for the price. I might even repurchase this when I run out if it continues to work this well for me. Have you tried any Garnier skin products? Did you like them? Let me know in the comments!
