This will be my very first real review,so please bear with me =) What it is: the Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream. 

It claims to :
Lock-in Moisture for 24 hours
Block out dryness

I picked this up on a whim. I have to admit I wasn't expecting much from this. The first time I tried this I had just gotten out of the shower and my skin was feeling dry and tight (I have dry/sensitive skin) and when I applied this,it had a cooling effect on my skin,which I LOVED. But sadly,that's the only good thing that came out of this. After I applied it my hands felt tight and sticky and I still noticed dry patches on my face,especially around my nose. It seemed as though it didn't absorb into my skin,no matter how much I rubbed it into it. Weirdly,it reminds me a little of a peel-off mask. It sorta just settled into the fine lines on my face and the tightness didn't go away. I kept using this because I wanted to make sure it wasn't for me. And it's not. I think someone with normal skin would like this. I need LOTS of moisture for my dry skin. 
Have any of you tried this?

Cost: Around $7

Great Review!!!
I like to use gel base moisturizer during the summer time.
But I think I will stick to Clinique one =)

Thanks for your honest review. If it felt like a peel-off mask, it must be really terrible!

Hmm Marcelle has came up with something similar to this in texture and it doesn't quite work or me because my skin is soooo dry ):

I've never tried a gel moisturize. The concept looks promising though. I might give them a try this summer. Thanks for the review.
