One brand I’ve been absolutely loving on the skin care radar recently is Garnier! I’m not new to their products but it’s only the last few months that I’ve been using their products with dedication to see the affect they have on my skin. Garnier has a variety of different products which all have different outcomes to the skin – they have a product for all skin types which is something i admire about them.
Garnier has a product for every section of the day and night to make your skin look flawless, radiant and minimised. So if your wondering, what are those products? I’m here to tell you from my own collection of Garnier products, what products you need for during the day and night.
To Start The Day – Micellar Cleansing Water
Starting the day is truly difficult for me due to my illnesses, I’m usually very drained from the night before and this does take it’s toll on my skin (not forgetting the never ending list of medications which make my skin go to pot). So recently I’ve decided to start the day right, drinking water to replenish my skin and skincare. I’m a girl who does her skincare routine at night and forgets to do it in the morning/during the day so it’s time to change that!
My love for Micellar Cleansing Water has grown hugely, it’s a product with so many purpose’s which is great for people who can be a little lazy at times – this applies to me. It’s a makeup remover, skin hydrater, cleanser, soothes and removes impurities all in one. So I’ve been using this as a cleanser/hydrater in the morning and a makeup remover at night, honestly, I have no complaints. This product makes my skin feel glorious! Micellar water contains Glycerine which when applied to skin, seals in the moister that might otherwise escape and helps maintain the skins water balance to help the skins aging process.
Using Micellar water has given me the kick up the butt that I needed to get back into the swing of morning skincare routine, which I appreciate hugely.
Before Makeup Application – Moisture Bomb / Super-Hydrating Antioxidant Moisteriser
This is a product everyone must have, especially when the weather is drying out your skin. I brought this in Superdrug this summer and since then I’ve been obsessed with how amazing it works! I apply one pump to the back of my hand and then dot it around my face, you don’t need much at all – although I will warn you: avoid your eye area as it burns like hell.
If your skin is dehydrated, the effects begin to show (dullness, finelines and irregularities) therefore using the Moisture Bomb 3-In-1 Moisturiser recharges your skin with the perfect amount of hydration and helps to protect it from external aggressions. I use Moister Bomb in the morning which instantly hydrates, makes my skin feel smoother and looks radiant. I never used moisturisers before because I hated feeling on my skin but the fresh texture melted immediately on contact with my skin and hydrates it perfectly all day long, no greasy or sticky effect which I love. It’s got the perfect amount of tackiness to act as a primer for your application of makeup, it makes your makeup look flawless as it gives you that extract radiance that you need and has SPF 10. This is dermatologically tested for sensitive skin which is perfect for me as I do tend to react to some products if they aren’t tested for sensitive skin types.
It’s one of those products I didn’t know I would use as much until I got it and now I honestly wouldn’t be without it.
During The Day – Moisture Bomb / Multi Portecting Hydrating Mist
This is a summer, winter, autumn and spring must have! I can 100% say you’ll want this in your bag and in your life this year. Like I’ve said before – I brought this in Superdrug this summer and since then I’ve been obsessed with how amazing it worked ever since.
If your looking for an on-the-go hydration mist that can be sprayed over makeup to be refreshed and protect your skin against external aggressions that dehydration and oxidize your skin each day, then this is the mist for you. This mist is completely different from others because it protects skin from daily aggressions; UV, pollution and oxidation. It combines antioxidant pomegranate hydrating glycerin and UV filters in a texture as light and invisible as air. It’s fresh, invisible, nongreasy and has a non-sticky finish which leaves the skin feeling amazing. With SPF 30 this is perfect to spray over makeup throughout the day to refresh your skin, it absorbs quickly with no need to wait or touch! This is the perfect product for throughout the day.
For The Evening – Charcoal Anti-Blackhead Wash, Scrub & Mask
A 3-in-1 product, that’s a wash, scrub and mask – what more could you want? Blackheads is a problem girls, boys, women and men worldwide suffer with and it’s something we all want to not just minimise but get rid of. I noticed that certain areas of my skin were becoming some what more “blackhead” prone and I’d heard good things about this mask so I brought it in hope of saying bye bye to those area’s.
If you have oily skin prone to blackheads and you are looking for a cleanser to visibly reduce their appearance and help to protect against their reappearance then this is the mask for you. I noticed that despite not having “oily” skin, intact mine is more in the dry range, it worked just as well. When as a WASH it’s proven to make all impurities appear removed – 96% of people agree. When a SCRUB it’s proven to make blackheads appear visibly reduced – 87% of people agree, which I can also agree with but it takes more than one scrub to make a difference. Finally, when a MASK it’s proven to make excess sebum appear reduced from first use – 96% of people agree. Overall, I’ve only used this as a scrub as that’s what I pacifically brought it for but after a few uses I did have a reaction to this product? I’m sure it’s probably just my skin playing up but I wanted to inform you as I wouldn’t be a good blogger if I didn’t. Despite the reaction, I did notice this product to work so, it’s a 50/50 for me.
Also For The Evening – Moister Bomb / Tissue Mask
Who doesn’t love a good pampering session in the bath? wether your a man or women a relaxing bath and a pamper always sounds good after a hard day. Which is why I love this tissue mask to just apply to my face whilst sitting back, 15 minutes of pure luxury (before you wrinkle up and become a prune, or for me crippled up in pain).
This new generation of super hydrating tissue mask inspired by Asia diffuses the equivalent level of hydrating serum as per 1 week’s use of day care. One mask equals one week hydrating serum, so as you can imagine this mask intensely rehydrates your skin. The ultra-thin tissue is infused with a super-hydrating serum concentrated with pomegranate extract and hyaluronic acid. Unmask smoother, bouncier, healthier skin in just 15 minutes! This is a bath side essential for anyone who wants to revive radiance, reduce the look of fine lines, intensely rehydrate your skin and the list continues on…
Bedtime – Moister Bomb / Super-Recharging Antioxidant Gelcream
After a long, busy, stressful day it’s not just your body/mind that becomes stressed, it’s your skin too. I certainly notice when my skin is stressed so it’s important you take care of that stressed skin before it gets worst (not forgetting too relax also, that’s so important when trying to look after yourself). This nightime gel-cream recharges up to 10 layers of skin with hydration and replumps the look of fine lines, it’s a dream…
If your skin is dehydrated, shows effects of time and your lifestyle (dullness, irregularities, finelines) and you seek a night time care that efficiently recharges your skin with hydration and enhances its youthful appearance then I’d defiantly try this product for your skin! It’s highly-efficient hydrating and antioxidant formula combines two antioxidant superfruit extracts: Amla and Pomegranate, known to help combat the harmful effects of daily aggressions. Plant Serum, to recharge the skin with moisture and help keep it hydrated for 72 hours.
With the mix of these special ingredients, it’ll all help contribute to hydrating your skin and you’ll wake up feeling fresh and radiant. It’s unique gel-cream texture is what I love most, I’m so fussy with textures and this texture I feel straight in love with. It’s concentrated in hydration and is lightweight on the skin, it melts on contact with the skin, infusing it instantly with hydration. Even better, it’s not greasy nor has a stick effect! I’ve seen such a difference since using this product, when I apply it at night it instantly gives me boost I need overnight and that lasts 72 hours, crazy right?
And that’s my daily routine, I couldn’t recommend or speak more highly of these Garnier products if I wanted too as there incredible. I can’t wait to try more from their range as I’ve heard good things, I’ll defiantly do some more reviews if you’d like them.
