Not perfect but looking forward to trying it in another season. (4 Stars)

After trying multiple samples of the Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream, 1.70-Fluid Ounce and loving the texture and light moisture I went into the store to pick some up but saw this next to it. Thinking since they're both in the Moisture Rescue line and this one had SPF 15 I'd try this one instead.

This is definitely a light moisturizer and I was pleased with the SPF factor but it made my skin, which is both combination and sensitive, quite greasy looking. I'm a bit acne-prone but had no trouble with this causing break-outs which is good news. :) The moisture was insanely long lasting, after a long day when I wash before bed my skin still feels great. Most of all I love the smell, this doesn't smell chemically or like it's fragranced to mask a harsh odor. Yes, one of its ingredients is a fragrance but it's light and makes me think of green things.

Overall I really do like the quality and feel of this product. It feels luxurious for being a drugstore product. For me I think I'll shelve it until after summer and see if perhaps the warmer weather wasn't part of the reason this gave me the shinies. If you're looking for a light moisturizer with SPF that's friendly to sensitive and acne-prone skin I'd recommend giving it a try though I do still prefer the Gel-Cream (if you're using a foundation with SPF over it like I do it's a perfect combo).
