Garnier Moisture Bomb Review


Hey Beauties! Last Winter I discovered what would become my holy grail moisturizer for winter, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream (reviewed here). I had a very similar product in my cupboard which I  got to testing out this month, Garnier Moisture Bomb. The texture and packaging is very similar to Hydro Boost so I was curious to see if it was any good. Let’s dive in!

Product Claims & Key Ingredients

Softer, Smoother, Healthier looking skin with the help of Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidants goji berry, pomegranate, and Vitamins C & E.

Pricing & Packaging

Garnier Moisture Bomb is slightly cheaper than Hydro Boost at $16.99USD for 1.7oz. Hydro Boost is $19.99USD for 1.7oz. Moisture bomb comes in a blue pot with a white lid and white labelling. It has some weight to it.



I absolutely love gel moisturizers so I was pretty sure I’d love Moisture Bomb. The texture is a thin gel that spreads easily and absorbs quickly. This is pretty standard with gel moisturizers but I felt this one absorbed almost too quickly, like a serum. My skin soaked up all the ingredients, but was left wanting more. My skin didn’t feel as hydrated as it does when I use Hydro Boost and had almost a tight quality to it afterwards.

Layered with hydrating foundation and SPF my skin felt much better, but I don’t think I will repurchase. I didn’t notice smoother or healthier looking skin after several weeks of use. I was left rather disappointed!

Weigh in! Do you love this moisturizer? Hate it? Let me know!

  1. At least it was worth the try! Now you know the Neutrogena one is better! I honestly can’t stand that tight feeling in my skin. It’s probably my biggest pet peeve lol. I really need to try the Neutrogena!!

    1. It was a bit of a let down! I also have dry skin, it gets really bad in the winter time. Hydro Boost has a gel cream version for extra dry skin, that’s what I use and I love it, but Skincare can be so different from one person to another! I’ve noticed that sometimes my primers will pill when using gel moisturizers though :S
