Garnier Gel Cream vs. Clinique Moisturizing Gel - Comparison

5 years ago

for the sake of the longest post title ever i shortened full name of the products.

the actual full names are garnier moisture renew refreshing gel cream and clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel.

i am going to compare these products the best i can. i have a feeling this will be a longer review, but if you are interested in either of these gel moisturizers. maybe this will help you in your decision.

i will start by saying i adore both of these gel moisturizers.

i have been using the garnier one for about a year and 3/4 the way through my third jar.

i bought the clinique one around christmas at a CCO.


- they both require a minimal amount of product to cover your whole face and neck(although the garnier typically requires slightly more product).

-they both sink into the skin and set very quickly.

-they both feel very light weight on the face, not at all heavy.

-they are both very moisturizing as well (although i find the clinique to be a bit more moisturizing).

-they both feel really nice and refreshing when i apply them on my face.


-the scents each one has is VERY different, the garnier has a very clean refreshing smelling scent to it. but it is very light scent. on the other hand the clinique has a stronger scent. somewhat hard to explain, its more of that lotion scent that has the tiniest hint of floral. once its on my face i can no longer smell it.

-packaging differences are pretty self explanatory from the pictures. the garnier is in a tub and the clinique is in a bottle with a pump.

-MAJOR DIFFERENCE, (see second picture) the garnier gel moisturizer has 1.7 oz. of product while the clinique has 4.2 oz.

-price point difference garnier costs around $7.99 typically, while the clinique typically costs $24.50.

* now down to my final verdict. i will admit i was with the majority of the people who see the clinique gel moisturizer and think thats way to expensive. but is it really??

then now seeing as i own both, i am re-thinking that. if you look at the amount of product you get in each of the moisturizers. you will notice that with the clinique you get slightly more, than 2.5X the amount of product than you get with the garnier.

i am not going to do the exact math, but it basically is around $20-21 worth of garnier gel moisturizer to equal the amount of product you get with clinique.

so honestly think about it, is there really a major price difference between the two??

i will also say while i love them both, i love the clinique more. i find it more moisturizing, the product will last longer between having to repurchase. plus i also use less product than with the garnier. it has a pump and nicer packaging. i also would consider it a better value for money!

* so my winner is the clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel.

have you tried either of these? or were you like me and thought that the clinique moisturizing gel was to expensive?

***pictures are my own.
