I am going to start a new series of blog posts where I compare two products, a drugstore brand vs the more expensive, department store brand. I want to know if you get a better product if you spend more, or if it is even worth it at all. The first two I am going to compare are these guys.
First up Clinique Moisture Surge face gel. I have been loyal to this product for quite some time. It is a gel, so it feels great on your face, and doesn’t make your face feel heavy with a lotion like feel. This will cost you $34.00.
Next up is a drugstore brand…
Garnier Moisture Rescue. Also a gel. You can get this for $5.99.
So here is how the story went down. I was completely out of my Clinique, and wasn’t going to get a change to get by a Clinique counter. So off to Target I went to pick up a moisturizer. I happened to see the Garnier, and that it was a gel, so I went with it. Here are the comparisons.
- Price: winner, Garnier
- Scent: winner, Garnier
- Condition of skin/locks in moisture: winner, tie
- Way it feels on face after application: winner, Clinique (but not by much)
So the overall winner in this comparison would be the Garnier Moisture rescue. I love it and am so glad I have found it. Saves me some money and it really is very close to the Clinique. If you haven’t tried a gel you should. You can also dab a bit over your makeup to freshen up a bit.
I will be doing these comparisons as I get through the products. For some, it takes a while, such as the one I am comparing for you now. Next comparison will be Loreal Youth Code, vs Lancome Genifique. Is anyone currently using either one of these products?
