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!
