When it comes to skincare I’m doubtful many embrace the idea of purchasing within a drugstore, at least I don’t. However, the new Garnier Moisture Rescue Collection has changed my mind.
I’m a likey!
A new light facial lotion from Garnier that locks-in moisture for 24-hours, blocks-out dryness, and has an SPF 15.
My love affair with Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream is going so well at the moment so I thought I’d try my hand out on the new Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV Lotion SPF 15.
It’s basically the same concept as the gel cream but it has a lighter, creamier formula with SPF included. The formula runs towards being a tad on the runny side and almost SPF-like in nature due to its strong white color. It sports a similar scent as the gel cream which I describe as fresh, shampoo-ish like.
The texture is a tad watery but it absorbs easily into the skin and thankfully doesn’t leave behind a white cast as I was in high debate about this due to it’s glaringly white shade. It absorbs fairly easy and runs towards being a lighter facial lotion versus a full on facial cream.
I wouldn’t say it did much for my combo skin and I dare say it won’t do much for my dry skin either due to its lighter lotion formula. Where as the gel cream delivers moisture and locks it in, I can’t say that this produced the same results. I didn’t feel like my skin felt any smoother or hydrated after use aside from a tiny burst of moisture during first application. It absorbs fairly easy however it feels a tad greasy throughout the day, I’ll go ahead and blame the SPF in the mix.
Speaking of SPF I do feel it’s somewhat pointless to have such a low SPF in a product as I feel the need to apply my own SPF prior to application as 15 is, in my opinion, a tad too low.
- Anyone looking for a light facial lotion.
- Anyone who has normal skin (this could prove an ideal pick for anyone who needs a lightweight facial lotion).
- Anyone living in a warm, humid climate (this is incredibly lightweight and won’t feel heavy on skin)!
- Anyone who desires a facial lotion and SPF combined (but SPF is only 15).
- Anyone who is in need of extra moisture for dry, tired skin!
- Anyone wanting something lightweight and non greasy (this had a tiny bit of greasiness to it that stuck with me all day).
I didn’t hate this but I didn’t love it either. Out of the two releases from the Garnier Moisture Rescure Collection I do think the Gel Cream was the better pick of the two. This is lightweight and absorbs quickly however I did notice it kinda sat around on my skin a bit. As mentioned above I blame this on the combination of SPF in the mix. It’s worth a try if you’re looking for a lighter facial lotion for daily use and don’t like anything that’s too rich however if you’re in need of hardcore hydration this probably won’t deliver.
