Garnier is still a relatively new brand, owned by L'Oreal. It has been made popular through advertising featuring Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker who is known for her beautiful hair and skin. Garnier has a line of hair and skin care products that contain natural fruit extracts. I haven't tended to be over excited about the Garnier skin care line because they tend to contain titanium dioxide, aluminum, and mica. However, Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Gel-Creme contains none of those ingredients. It also does not contain sunscreen. The lotion version of this product contains sunscreen and comes in a larger pump bottle.
This is a very light, quickly absorbed gel with a very delicate, clean scent. It spreads quickly and easily and absorbs leaving a matte finish. The scent is refreshing and gender neutral. This product is amazing, it provides hydration big time plumping up the skin and making it look soft and dewy. It does not feel heavy and provides ample hydration.
I have found that using too much causes it to ball up some as well as if I layer it with other products; however, a little goes a long way since it spreads so easily. Also, I have been using it as a sort of face mask. I sort of goop it on and let it soak in for a while before showering. It is cool and refreshing and makes my skin feel very soft and hydrated.
The 1.7 ounce jar of Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Gel-Creme is available at a variety of stores and retails for under $8.00.
