Garnier Moisture Rescue

I have combo skin and I hate having too many layers of product on my face (moisturizer, sunscreen, foundation, etc.) Often times, if I don’t have the right kind of light moisturizer on hand, I will skip moisturizing and just apply my sunscreen. However, I have found this detrimental to my skin. Despite areas of oiliness, I have found that using a moisturizer is an essential step not to be skipped. Especially as skin ages and during the cold, harsh winter months. In fact, not moisturizing properly can cause your skin to overcompensate and produce even more oil.

A product that I discovered some time ago that works well is Garnier’s Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream for Normal/Oily Skin. This light gel has a refreshing, clean scent. It penetrates well without an oily feel. Perfect for application under your sunscreen and/or foundation. It seems to provide the right amount of hydration without blocking your pores or causing breakouts. Recommended use is twice a day, morning and night. Garnier makes a version for dry skin as well.

Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream (Normal/Combo Skin) ingredients:

Water
Glycerin
Alcohol Denatured
Dimethicone
Isononyl Isononanoate
Carbomer
Dimethiconol
Chlorphenesin
Caprylyl Glycol
Sodium Hydroxide
Vitis Vinifera Extract Grape
Xanthan Gum
Tetrasodium EDTA
Tocopherol Acetate
Ascorbyl Glucoside
Methoxypropanediol
Magnesium Gluconate
Sodium Citrate
Benzyl Salicylate
Linalool
Calcium Gluconate
Biosaccharide Gum 1
Hydroxyisohexyl 3 Cyclohexene Carboxalde
Butylphenyl Methylpropional
Yellow 5Ci 19140
Blue 1Ci 42090
Fragrance
Phenoxyethanol

That ingredient list is long, isn’t it? That is my only complain. I wish it wasn’t full of chemicals and I wish Alcohol Denatured wasn’t so high up on the list. If I could find a comparable product that was more natural, I would definitely cheat on Garnier. Unfortunately, I have yet to find a new love. Until I do, I will stick with Garnier. I urge you to try it. You may find yourself falling in love, too.
