A couple of days ago i received some new products from Garnier and wanted to give you a closer look at them and explain to you what they are because they will take some time for reviewing. I was sent four facial creams, one foaming facial cleanser and a oil for my body (something like a moisturiser). So far i am using one of the creams on a daily basis and the oil for my body. The facial cleanser needs probably another month or so before i start reviewing it as im currently using Cetaphil's cleanser which is HUGE.
Hydra Match Facial Cream by Garnier
There are four creams in this range which all do the same thing (help hydrate your skin) but are for different skin types. The pink one is for dry to sensitive skin ,the blue one is for normal to combination skin, the green one combination to oily (currently the one i am using) and the orange one for dull and tired skin.
The texture of the creams are something so different compared to other creams i have tried. It looks like sorbet the colours and the texture is like a thick whipped cream yet when applied it is easily absorbed by your skin and leaves no shine. An estimate of how long it would last you is probably about 5-6 weeks if you are applying it day and night.
During summer i always make sure i have a good hydrating cream for my face because all that sun really dries your skin out. Usually when im on holiday i apply a hydrating cream after i have had my shower after the beach and depending on how dehydrated i feel my skin to be i apply it twice and dont leave the hotel room to make sure it really sinks in and gets working. These creams seem really good so far and im looking forward to reviewing them.
Pure Active Gentle Foaming Cleanser
I love foaming cleansers. They make life in the morning so much more easier and quicker. When i get the choice i tend to opt for a foaming cleanser because in the mornings when you are in a rush you just apply the foam in massage motions and wash it off. When you have a normal cleanser you have to create the foam yourself which isnt as quick as having it ready.
I love this new packaging Garnier has for this products , i find its more appealing and looks more summery. It smells of fruit which is lovely and is for combination to oily skin (yey!) . It contains grapefruit , pommegranate and vitamin c in and it helps control your oily skin and clean it. Really looking forward to trying this out!
One thing i hate about any kind of oil is when i have to put it on my hands to apply it, i really hate the feeling of oil on my hands that just wont come off. This beauty oil has a spray applicator which is great news for me and its much less messier than having to apply it on your skin and then more products comes out than what you wanted. The spray applicator sprays a thin layer and all you have to do is keep spraying if you want more .
This contains Argan oil , Macadamia oil, Rose and Almond. It illuminates , nourishes and perfects your skin and is for body use only. It smells really really nice , its like a perfume but much much lighter. Its not of those oils that go all sticky its just like you are applying a cream but in an oil version. So far so good with this oil !!!
Garnier BB Cream Ambre Solaire
This is just the BB cream they have out but with normal sun protection (SPF30). It is for the face and the neck and it is water resistant and not greasy. I havent had a chance to try it yet as the colour of the BB cream is quite dark. As soon as i tan really well i will start wearing this cream and review it at some point. This is great for any woman who likes to go to the beach and wear a little bit off makeup or for any women who tans a lot and tends to not wear as much heavy makeup (i.e me) during summer.
That was everything girls ! A pretty huge post but with swatches and closer look that i believe needed doing. Let me know what you are liking the sound off or if you have tried any of these products yet what is your opinion.
Thank you !
