Best moisturizer I have ever used in my entire life. My skin is so dry that it flakes off and NOTHING will absorb into my skin except this stuff.

I have combination sensitive acne prone skin. I am currently in my third session of microderma brassion. I am battling a break out right now. I used honey cleansing for three months which left me with clogged pores, then i went back to my dollar general off brand noxema that i have been using for two years. I have switched to biore skin balancing cleansing in the white and blue bottle and i like it. I have been using this for a month. I use rose water mist as a toner. After i let it dry i used sage and citrus florencia moisturizer but it sting my cheeks and left my nose dried out because it had L absorbic acid, i continued this for a month. Then i switched to neutrogena spf 15 oil free moisturizer it worked at first but then it made my t zone oily. I have been on a no diary eating regime (because i hate saying diet) for a week going on two. I got this garnier skin rescue for combo and normal skin off amazon for 5.99. I have been using it for 2 days and i like it. It goes on nice and i cant tell i have it on. It has a mint smell that i am loving. After i let it dry i mix tea tree oil , fresh lemon juice, and bottled water in a bowl and spot treat my acne. I spot treat 2 to 3 times a day i do not wash it off. I have used it for a week and i have white heads on my cheeks and jaw line. My acne was clearing up until i start using this.. Dimeticone traps dirt and bacteria.

I picked this up to compare it to Belif Aqua Bomb which is my HG and is a gel based cream. This moisturizer is highly fragranced and linger for a few minutes after application. It's also very watery as well. I find that if you do apply too much it does leave behind an sticky finish. It sinks in fairly quickly but it leaves my skin looking shiny. If It looks nothing like a gel cream....looks more like a gel than anything else. If you can't afford Belif then I would consider this but I truly find Belif to be far superior.

I really like that its not oily, very light yet sufficently moisturizing. Its like my skin had a glass of cold water. ive been using this for like 3 weeks already and ive seen a diference in my pores, my pores used to be congested due to the mineral oil in my ponds products. Right now my skin is moisturized and my pores are uncongested. Really happy i found this!

The first few times i used this I was not a fan, but my skin was also in very poor shape and i don't think it was working well with my other junky products. I've revamped the rest of my routine and now i'm looking for that one moisturizer i can count on. I really need a gel and unfortunately there aren't that many gel moisturizers out there.

I'm actually really impressed with this now. The fragrance is pretty strong but fortunately i like it and find it fades as it absorbs. Others who are sensitive to that kind of thing should be cautious. This does exactly what i need it to do, doesn't break me out, absorbs well, i can find it at the store/pharmacy and it provides the right amount of moisture for my combination acne prone skin at a good price.

Although there is controversy on packaging, alcohol based ingredients and fragrance - I must say I love this product. There are very few products I can put on my face without breaking out because of my sensitive skin - this is one of them! Fragrance doesn't bother me, gives my skin a healthy glow and soaks in quickly, would recommend!

I like this, it's light, not greasy absorbs quickly. Wears well under makeup. Skin still feels moisturized but without some of the heavy thick layer some moisturizers give.

This is a very light moisturizer. I have oily skin so it feels good to not have a heavy cream on my face. It does feel refreshing and the texture is different.....kinda watery and gel-like. It never made me break out or give me problems so I will use it up but I will not repurchase because of the scent. I like cucumber scent so when I first started using it I loved it but somehow after time it started to smell like alcohol and artificial cucumbers : (

First off, I think this is a decent moisturizer for oily skin. I'd stay away from it if you're dry. It is very watery and light, and once it sinks in, there isn't much residue, yet it very lightly moisturizes.I think this product could be better, honestly. For me, I did not like that there is a little bit of menthol in it. I understand that it does feel kind of nice, but for sensitive skin, it's a no bueno. Also, it's synthetic cucumber scent kind of bothers me.

So all in all, for your money it's a good moisturizer for oily skin if you have a budget, but i've tried better. I'd only repurchase it if I was too broke to buy the $25 Hydralight Lotion from Paula's Choice.

I have been using this product during the summer, and it is great for my combination skin, which tends toward oily during the humid and hot summer. It keeps my skin moisturized, and absorbs quickly. Makeup is easily applied directly afterwards with no "balling up" or adverse events. I have been using this in conjunction with the Garnier 2 in 1 serum+moisturizer, and although there are no dramatic results, my skin is healthy and clear :)
