I loveeeee this moisturizer. I normally am not one to repurchase any product. I like trying new things. But after trying the regular version of this moisturizer, I purchased the dry skin version and I am hooked and just bought my third jar of the stuff. While I did like the original of this products, I figured I could use just a bit more moisture. This stuff is wonderful. Only use it directly after washing your face or it will be too oily. It does linger on the skin for a few seconds but I just apply it and then either brush my hair or text someone back really quickly and normally within 30 seconds this stuff has soaked right up into my skin and my skin just feels healthy and soft. I only use this moisturizer under my makeup and I use it almost as a primer. My makeup lasts longer with this stuff underneath it and it smells good also. Some people complain about the packaging saying it's unhygenic...it's only me using it and I make sure I have clean hands before dipping my finger into it...solves that problem. It lasts so long also. Each jar seems to last me at least 3 months. For a drugstore moisturizer, it's a bit pricey. I buy it at WalMart for $8 and last time I had a $2 off coupon but I've seen it as high as almost $10 at CVS. Whenever you see a coupon for this stuff, cut it and go buy it because you will want to stock up. I will continue to use this for as long as they make it...and when I find out they're stopping making it, I'll buy a few jars to hold me over until I find something similar.

I went from NARS to Garnier. I thought I wouldn't notice a difference but it does not refresh and my skin looks old. As a get, it's cooling to the touch but doesnt last or moistuize. I'm still looking for the right moisturizer, trying Clarins next.
Nice moisturizer, softens but doesn`t leave skin feeling greasy. You only need a small amount, too much can dry sticky. Feels cool and refreshing. Love it.
The concept of this sounded great but unfortunately this gave me very little moisture. It's perfect if you have combo skin verging on slightly dry but this did nothing to actually moisturize my dry skin. It feels good going on but there's just not enough moisture in it to keep using.
Not a fan of this product. If you read ingredients :
3) Alcohole Denat .....WHY ?!!!! After this I stopped reading ingredients ......
Alcohol - Usually alcohol and moisturizer are not used at the same time. Alcohol removes moisture from the skin surface. Alcohole temporary creaties a cooling effect on the skin ... However, it is not lasting effect and alcohol will over dry your skin ultimately compromising skin defensive and leave it open to disease and infections.
In the long run , you are hurting your skin ...any and all effects that you may think are helpful for your skin are only temporary .
It doesn't matter what type of skin you have ...this is not a good product to use on your skin .
Shaking my head , researchers in Garanier ....you guys should know better.
i thought this would help moisturize my face but no, it actually didnt do anything besides make my skin feel soft(which i liked) but my skin still felt a bit dry after i would not buy this again!
This is one of my HG moisturizers and I have dry skin. I have been looking for an affordable gel moisturizer forever! After trying Clinique's Moisture Surge I fell in love with the gel texture but I did not repurchase because of the price tag and how quickly I went through it. I was hesitant to try this for the longest time because of the alcohol in it. Once they came out with the pink version for dry skin I bought it. I am now on my second tub and I am in love. I love the fragrance. This has never broke me out. In fact when I do get blemishes this helps clear it up. I'm guessing the alcohol does this but it does not leave my skin dry. It feels so good on my skin. It has a cooling effect. I usually use this as my night moisturizer. I will say that if my skin is extra dry I may have to use a heavier cream for a couple of nights. For that I usually use Nivea creme in the blue tub.
This product does NOT do what it claims to. Not only does it feel sticky & gross on my skin, but it also did not help AT ALL with moisturizing. If you have very dry skin, trust me... this is not for you. I am not what I would consider an "extreme" case of dryness. My skin wasn't flaking off in patches or causing me discomfort or anything like that. During the winter months I find that my makeup starts to look crusty in certain dry areas on my face, no matter what type I use (liquid, powder, cheap, expensive... I've tried everything!). I tried several different moisturizers, this one included & just wasted a bunch of money. I suppose if you have only very slight dryness this would work, but then so would just about any other moisturizer... and a lot of those don't smell like the funk & make your face feel like a sticky mess. Try Burt's Bees intense hydration day lotion... it has worked wonders for me! continued >>
My new hg moisturizer! It does exactly what it says it rescued my skin. I no longer have dry flakey skin. This moisturizer keeps my skin moisturized all day and I don't need to reapply throughout the day like other moisturizers
This moisturizer is great. Using acne products leaves my skin pretty dry and most lotions either don't hydrate enough or they make my skin really greasy. This is perfect because it moisturizers really well without being greasy. I also love that a little of this product goes a long way. I think it took me a little over a month to use a whole jar! If you need some very moisturizing lotions/gel, I definitely recommend to give this a try.
