Quickly penetrates. Deeply hydrates and firms.

A multi-tasking daily moisturizer that effectively reduces signs of aging. This fast-absorbing, time-saving formula is a powerful combination of a serum and a moisturizer in one. Infused with Vitamin E, Pro-Retinol (a form of Vitamin A) and Rice Peptides, it intensely hydrates while fighting wrinkles and improving elasticity.


Instantly skin feels hydrated, smoother and firmer. In 2 weeks, wrinkles and fine lines are reduced for a younger look. Skin feels tighter and lifted with improved elasticity.

How to use:

Gently pump a small amount onto fingers and massage into face and neck until thoroughly absorbed. For best results, use twice daily.

This has been my go to for about 6 years. The first time I used it I saw a difference in my appearance, and within a week I was receiving compliments from others on how beautiful my skin looked.

I’ve seen this help reverse the signs of aging and maintain that improvement. It isn’t greasy, absorbs well and doesn’t have any real scent.

I really liked this product for a moisturizer. It was a little pricey for a drugstore moisturizer but you all pay for the serum because it is a 2 in 1 product. It was gentle on my skin and left my skin very moisturized with a subtle fruity fragrance that I enjoyed. Unfortunately I didn't see any improvement as far as filing in fine lines. I don't think I would purchase it again as I would only be using it as a moisturizer and there are cheaper drug store moisturizers that do a good job.

I used this a few a times. At first I was not a fan of it because it would feel really sticky. Turned out I had a bad product. When I purchased another one, I started to notice the difference on my forehead near my eyes.

This product is good for the price but I didn't really notice a difference in my skin.
It's a good starter product definitely but I wouldn't use it for a long amount of time.

It does smell really nice and have a nice consistency

I have been using the Garnier Ultra-Lift serum + moisturizer for a couple weeks now. I use a full pump each morning. For reference I have sensitive, combination skin and live in a very hot, humid climate.
This product does have moderate fragrance. It also lingers for a while after application. If you're sensitive to fragrance, you may want to pass or see if you can try it out before you make the purchase. I can't place my finger on the scent itself -- it's somewhere between pastries/baked goods and floral/herbal.
It seems to be a very rich, thick cream. However, it immediately sinks into the skin without any greasy residue. I find that it can be slightly tacky if you use too much. I used the serum + moisturizer with several foundations and it seemed to do well under all of them. However, it doesn't seem to react well with many sunscreen formulas. It tends to ball up and pill. I didn't really notice any excess oil throughout the day while using this. It also hasn't broken me out ... that I can tell. I do have a couple breakouts, but I think it may be from stress and all the walking I've been doing in this heat coupled with wearing makeup ALL day (like 12-16hrs). Now, I haven't noticed any difference in skin tone/texture or discoloration nor any reduction in the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles. Perhaps with continued use, I may see some noticable improvement; however, the brand claims two weeks is the magic number.
Overall, I think that this is a good, BASIC moisturizer, but a lackluster serum for aging skin. I do think that, for this price point, this could be worth it just for the moisturizer. If you're looking for a good serum for aging or problem skin, however, you may want to look elsewhere.

I wasn’t a fan of this. Probably the only skincare item in this line that I don’t like. It’s the smell. I was kind of surprised that it didn’t smell very good. I wouldn’t purchase this again.

This is one of my favorite moisturizers I've ever used. It's not cheap but it's so worth it. It is the one skin product I've bought over and over because my skin feels so soft and like it took a big drink of water. It's so soft and smooth and nice when I use it each morning I never need anything else.

Not that the product was horrible or anything, it just wasn't for me. I try eye creams/ serums every now and then and I just feel like I never see a huge difference to convince me to purchase again. I would always give eye creams and serums another chance but only if it fits my budget.

I was so excited for this product as I was hoping it would cut down on the number of items in my medicine cabinet. Unfortunately, it made my skin SO SO oily! I was a total oil slick by noon. I tried just using this at night and I was STILL oily. This is maybe better for totally dry complexions.

This product is affordable and effective. It did meet my expectations as a skin care product and I was happy with the results. I don't have many wrinkles as I'm only 24 but I like to try to prevent them. I would probably not buy again only because I'd prefer a skin care product more fit for me.

When would it be best to use this? How is it when contacted in the sun?

Does this get rid of mist wrinkles and lines quickly or do results take a while?

I just purchased the CVS version of this product, has anyone tried? Do you think it will be as good?
