Garnier Moisture + Protect Daily Protective Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier’s Moisture + Protect Daily Protective Moisturiser which I picked up for ¬£1.49 (Home Bargains!). This moisturiser with SPF 20 is aimed at women with normal or uneven skin, and it promises to brighten and to illuminate skin. I’ve been using this moisturiser for just under 3 weeks now, so let me tell you if it’s any good.

I think this moisturiser is quite good. It plays well with all sorts of products (toner, serum, hyaluronic acid face mist, glycolic peel) without balling up and without troubling my skin. This moisturiser feels light, but it hydrates my skin properly. It also sits well under make-up. However, there is one thing I’m not happy with…

… this moisturiser smells more like a hand cream than a face cream. The fragrance is 90% calendula with 5% lemon and 5% honey. I’m pretty sure I once had a hand cream that smelled exactly like this. I appreciate that fragrances are a personal thing, and the next person might love this fragrance – but I don’t. ūüôā I will definitely continue to use this moisturiser but, because of the fragrance, I wouldn’t buy it again.

Garnier’s Moisture + Protect Daily Protective Moisturiser is available as 50ml. I believe the RRP is around ¬£4, but I only paid ¬£1.49. It appears that Garnier has just repackaged the entire collection – so this must be the reason why the “old” stock can be found at Home Bargains!

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Face WashHi there! Most of the time I use Olay products on my face, but occasionally I pick up products from other brands for a change, like this Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash which I bought for half price at the drugstore.

This face wash is aimed at people with oily skin that’s prone to imperfections, and it claims to target these imperfections, to awaken skin and to tighten pores.

OK, I’ve got dry skin, so this product isn’t really aimed at me. However, my pores could do with a little tightening and I wouldn’t say no to my skin being awakened, so I’ve been using this face wash twice daily for just over a week now.

To be honest, I didn’t notice any difference at all. My pores are exactly as they were a week ago and my skin does not look any fresher or more awakened. I’m also not loving the scent; it’s a tad too sweet for my taste.

However, I think this face wash is really great at removing make-up, so I’ll be using it up for sure.

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash is available as 200 ml. It’s usually ¬£4.99, but at the moment it’s on special offer at the two big drugstores.
