Here's yet another skincare fav of mine. Yes, I've been on a roll with these skincare products. I just have so many that I want to share and knockout. This skincare product is a moisturizer that I recently (about 2 months ago) found and have fallen in love with to the max!
This is the Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream. Love, love, loveee it!

ReviewThe formula for this has a fresh, floral scent which smells amazing. The gel comes in a heavy glass jar and is a pale shade of green. The formula contains grape water extract and Vitamin E. The consistency of the product is obviously, as per its name, a gel formula. Gel formulas are great as they absorb quickly upon contact with skin and feel so soothing and hydrating. They absorb much like water and leave skin super dewy and hydrated.
The formula is oil free so you aren't left feeling greasy after use nor does it feel like you have a heavier cream on your face. Facial moisturizers are tricky and they do occasionally feel like they are laying above the surface of your skin rather than absorbing fully which is why gel’s are so much more user friendly. You may not find this as a cure all for dryness however it does work as a fabulous prep for makeup and feels incredible on your skin due to it’s super fast absorption.
If you're sensitive to smell or have excessive dry skin than this may not be the product for you. They have a new formula specifically for dry skin -- you may need to buy that one.
Price wise it’s very affordable at $7.99 USD for a 1.7 oz jar but in many cases you’ll find it on sale at local drugstores, Target Etc… I got mine from the dollar store here in NJ for $5 USD.
