Reviews for Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream for Dry Skin, 1.7 Ounces
People say Garnier is really similar to Clinique.
Similar to much pricier options
I used to use Clinique's Moisture Surge but found this when looking for a more affordable alternative. The formula feels almost identical but this is about 20% of the cost of the Clinique product. That makes this an excellent bargain in my book! I have fairly dry skin, and I'll put this on every night and also as needed during winter days if my skin is feeling particularly dry. It makes my skin feel instantly moist yet doesn't feel sticky or greasy. Love it!
I've been using this for 3 weeks now and I can honestly say I'm highly impressed. I have very dry skin and wearing makeup in the winter in PA is a nightmare for me. About a week into using this, my skin appeared softer and less dry. After three weeks in, it is super soft and smooth and there is barely any dryness throughout the entire day. My makeup finally looks good in the winter! I've tried so many different products over the years and this has been the best so far. I even used Clinique's Moisture Surge, which is comparable to look and feel, but so expensive for a tiny amount of product, but didn't work as good as this did. I'm a huge fan!
Goodbye L’Oréal & Clinique!
I was a loyal user of L’Oréal’s Hydrafresh moisture gel cream for many years. Once they discontinued it I went to Clinique’s Moisture Surge. I loved the Moisture Surge. I went on a weekend trip & forgot it at home. My friend offered up her Garnier’s SkinActive Moisture Rescue to use in a pinch. I was reluctant but went ahead & used it. Was it as good as Clinique’s Moisture Surge? In my opinion, absolutely. I was hooked with the very first application. The price point sweetened it even more. I ordered some from Amazon while I was still out of town so that it would be waiting for me when I got home from my trip. I’m 48 & a Firefighter/Medic. I am always trying to keep my skin hydrated. Garnier does the job perfectly. It has a very light fresh scent, applies smoothly, absorbs beautifully & leaves my skin absolutely silky. It isn’t sticky at all & never once has it made my face feel dry or tight. My skin has never looked so fresh & dewy. I get compliments on my skin daily. So if you’re looking for a good gel moisturizer, this is the one. It’s the absolute best sleeper product out there!
I've been using this moisturizer for several months now and it's been a great replacement to the much more expensive Clinique one I'd been using. I have dry skin pretty much all throughout the year. I use this product day and night, before applying foundation or powder so and my skin looks and feels moisturized but not oily. It doesn't have much scent either which I like. Great alternative!!!
Love love love
Love this moisturizer. This is my like 6th time buying it. It’s a dupe for the Clinique moisture surge and honestly I like it better. I have super dry and sensitive skin and this is the only moisturizer that doesn’t break me out or make me feel greasy
A Really Nice Moisture Surge Knock-Off For Those On A Budget
This is a knock-off for Clinique's Moisture Surge but it's not bad. I've used it and especially in the summertime because I have greasy skin in the summer and dry in the winter. It gives you the feeling of your skin drinking this in, it's rich but not greasy, it really moisturizes your skin in those hot summer months and I swear by it as an older woman. It's a good knock-off at an even better price compared to the Clinique product.
Dupe for Clinique Moisture Surge
I usually used Clinique moisture surge because it was the only thing that my sensitive skin would tolerate without being too heavy/greasy. But this moisturizer is a great dupe. It has a fruity smell, but it doesn't bother me or my skin. Definitely try if you're using moisture surge it does the trick for a fraction of the price!
Bought this hoping it would be like Clinique's moisture surge and I was not disappointed! It does have more of a scent compared to moisture surge, but it is not overwhelming. It goes on smoothly and isn't too heavy. I would buy this lotion again.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
I purchased this jar over 3 months ago and use it daily. I just moved to AZ and the heat was drying out my face even with the expensive Clinique moisturizer I was using. I thought I would give this a try and am SO in love. It is a fraction of the cost of the Clinique product I have been using for years. My 17 year old daughter began using it too and it has helped with her acne as well. All you need is a few small dabs, it goes a long way. You will not regret making this purchase!
I have very dry skin and this seem to work. I love how when I put it on, I dont feel it afterwards unlike others such as clinique. I will re purchase again.
