Confession: I really hate lotion. Especially lotion for my face. I never used to use lotion for my face or my body until this year. Luckily, I don’t have dry skin, but I really wanted to start taking care of my skin now that I’m 30 years old. I’ve been looking into different face creams lately and although I use them, I wasn’t really happy with one. (I really, really hate lotion). I came across the Garnier Refreshing Gel-Cream on a buzzfeed article for the best skin care items and the ‘gel’ aspect of it really made me want to try it.
Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream Review:
Description from website:
Locks-in moisture for 24 hours. Blocks-out dryness. Oil-free. Over time, an active lifestyle and environmental factors can damage skin’s natural protective barrier, causing it to lose moisture faster than ever. Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream is right for you if you want long-lasting hydration. Instantly: skin looks and feels supple, smooth. Stays hydrated for 24 hours. In 1 hour: skin’s moisture barrier prevents dryness. With Regular Use: continuously moisturized, skin is hydrated and looks healthier. Gently apply Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream every morning and night to face. This lightweight, oil-free formula instantly penetrates. ($6)
I’ve been using this for several months and I can’t imagine going back to normal lotions for my face, ever again. I love the gel-cream formula and how it doesn’t leave that yucky lotion-y residue that I hate. I used to dread having to moisturize my face but now I really look forward to it every morning and night. The formula is light-weight and refreshing but lasts all day and I’m in love with the smell. It feels very cool and like the name suggest, very refreshing when you apply it which is especially nice for these hot summer months. I already use and love other Garnier skin care products, and I’m glad to add this to my permanent skin care collection. I’ve tried other face creams before and after using this but I always come back to this one. I just purchased my fourth gel cream this past week and I love it as much as the first time I used it. This is one of those products that I will never stop repurchasing. If you like light and non-sticky creams, then this gel cream is perfect for you!
Have you used this Garnier Gel Cream yet? What lotion do you use for your face?
