Review: Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Renew Gel Cream

Enlarge to read

- Fast absorbing
- Moisturizing for a gel
- Good base for makeup

- Contains silicone-based ingredients and alcohol

$6-7 for 1.7 oz / 50 g

Overall: A-
I am very pleased with this as a day moisturizer, since it seems to moisturize and smooth out my sometimes flaky cheeks and make my concealer and BB cream look nice. I also use this for my t-zone at night, but I use a thicker cream for my cheeks. For reference, I have combination skin.
I think the reason this absorbs or dries so quickly on the skin is because it has alcohol as its 3rd most abundant ingredient, which could be drying on some people.

If you find that your makeup doesn't seem to look great on top of your current day moisturizer, I definitely recommend giving this a try.

Yes, assuming it's still available by the time I use it up.

Would I recommend it?
Not in particular


  1. thanks for your review!
    i guess it kinda doubles as primer due to the silicones.:)

  2. @ No problem, thanks for stopping by to comment! :) Yeah, luckily my skin seems to be okay w/ silicone based products as of now
