My Review: Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream FOR DRY SKIN

Hey guys! Today I will be reviewing the newly released Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel Cream for Dry Skin I found at my local CVS! I've searched and scanned my nearby Walgreens, Target, and Ulta for this product, but they are yet to receive this new release.  Keep reading for in depth pictures and my own review after testing the product for 3 weeks.

What is it? This gel doesn't just coat the skin with a wet and fresh feel, it penetrates deep down to relieve dried skin, acting as a moisturizer as well.  After trying out the previous/original Moisture Rescue Gel Cream and absolutely loving the refreshing spin on a traditional moisturizer, I had to test this out to see if the claim of 2x more humectants than the original was valid. Both gels contain antioxidant fruit water, which definitely contributes to the slick yet not oily feeling this moisturizer provides.  I love the creative twist this moisturizer  shares rather than a traditional, boring lotion, but the ingredients within this gel scare me a little more than I'd like.

Things To Rave About:

1) Cooling/Refreshing Effect: Once applied, an immediate cooling sensation relieves dried skin.  It strays from a burning feeling while not providing a tingling feeling either, meeting just right in the perfect middle of the two opposite spectrums. It almost feels like you splashed yourself with a cup of cold water, yet instead with a delicious apple and grape fragrance and in gel form. This sounds awesome for hot, humid summer days when a splash in the pool is needed!

2) Gel Formula:  Lotions and creams have a tendency to clog pores, create a barrier that fails to sink into the skin, or just simply feel heavy and look noticeable. This gel sinks right in after application, leaving a silky clear appearance for just a few seconds and then entirely disappearing.  Being 100% oil free and non- greasy definitely contribute to this no-residue-left-behind finish.

3) It's Moisturizing!: I am not so sure it lives up to its 2x more humectants claim ( humectants = more moisturizing), but it definitely relieves any red patches or peeling skin I have.  The product does not contain many moisturizing ingredients, but the hydrating affect not only refreshes but also calms inflamed and irritable areas of the face.

No residue left behind after blending

Things to Rant About:

1) Extreme Content of Alcohol!: Why doesn't it live up to its 2x more humectants claim? Most likely because of the alarming amounts of alcohol that are notorious for drying out skin.  It surprises me that the antioxidant fruit water and the alcohol don't cancel each others effects out, leaving skin feeling exactly like before application. Sensitive skin must keep away from this product, otherwise dry patches will rather inflame than soothe.

2) Lack of Beneficial Ingredients: I have spotted moisturizers that contain scores of fruit oils, natural humectants, and vitamins, all vital to not just moisturizing but also repairing skin so that the dry patches won't just be soothed but rather healed and returned to its original plump state. Super dry skin requires not just glycerin ( the main ingredient in drugstore moisturizers) but also natural properties to aid in skin renewal.   The only ingredients I found possibly helpful in this product were the alba flower extract and apple fruit water.

My Overall Rating: 7.0 / 10
