New Garnier Moisture Match Moisturisers

Sunday, January 27, 2013


Garnier have just launched a collection of five newly formulated moisturisers each of which target a different skin complaint from dry to dull to normal skin types and all that is in-between their is a moisturiser for you.
At £5.99 each it won't break the bank to give your skin care routine a little boost.
Obviously I haven't tried out all five on my face but I have tested them all out on my hands to get a feel for the texture etc and I have been using the formula aimed at oily skin on my face.


Normal Skin

Developed exclusively in the US labs, this weightless lotion contains Vitamin B3, Lemon extract and light reflecting pearls, to give a healthy-looking glow. Also containing SPF20 UVB sunscreen filters, the daily moisturiser protects as it hydrates without leaving any residue on the skins surface.
This has a thick yet light at the same time texture that has been formulated for normal skin types, adding not only moisture but also a radiant effect to the skin.
Although I have oily skin this is the formula I would pack for a holiday in the sun as the heat dries my skin out and who doesn't want more luminous skin?


Oily/Combination Skin


This is Garnier’s first ever whipped formula that has a uniquely cooling texture that feels light and fresh on the skin.With Aquakeep technology, Shine be gone is blended with super-absorbent micro-spheres to deliver a mattifying effect that lasts all day.Just a little of the cooling sorbet texture goes a long way and is immediately absorbed leaving skin non-greasy and looking perfectly mattified. Green Tea extract, known for its powerful antioxidant and detoxifying properties protects the skin whilst leaving it looking beautifully smooth and matte.
This is a great oil busting formula that keeps skin shine free for around 8 hours but adds a light dose of hydration to oily/combination skin without overwhelming and brightens skin too.
I find this to be great primer for my skin type and a complete snip at £5.99!
I will however follow up with a full review of this version in a month or so when I have fully trialed it.



Dull Skin



Garnier Wake Me Up is enriched with Citrus extract and Hibiscus flower, in a light jelly which contains water encapsulated gel particles that bust upon contact with the skin. The light yet hydrating texture has been enriched with Citrus extract and Hibiscus flower to stimulate the senses and boost the complexion. Immediately upon application skin feels revitalised, silky and wide awake. The Wake Me Up formula has been Inspired by the best-selling moisturisers in Asia, Wake me up gives an immediate fresh effect and all day skin comfort. This is the only formula out of the five that I would say anyone and everyone could use, it may not be quite rich enough to quench super dry skin used alone but is a great pick me up for anyone who ever suffers from dull skin.


Dry to Very Dry Skin


This luxurious créme is instantly soothing and comforting and does have a slightly thicker than usual texture but once more it is not heavy on the skin and will deliver the much needed hydration boost parched skin will require. Enriched with Camellia oil, Omega 3 & 6 and Shea butter, each known to have intensive nourishing properties, rich but quickly absorbed, skin feels soothed and nourished all day.


Normal to Dry Skin


A bespoke mix of ultra-light smoothing oils and Blue Lotus extract create a light melting cream that works to give a soft and fresh feel to the skin. Perfect for normal to dry skin, the cream leaves skin feeling fresh, extra soft and hydrated.This mosituriser has a lighter than air formula that is instantly absorbed into the skin. In my opinion this the perfect winter moisturiser for normal skin as it offers a little more moisture than a typical product aimed at normal skin but not so much so that it will overwhelm the skin and cause problems.

Something for everyone wouldn't you agree?

  1. This is such a good idea! However, I find some of the Garnier lotions to be a bit too oily- maybe I'll try out the mattifying one.

  3. I think this is a fab idea, as I think a lot of 'highstreet' brands miss the mark when it comes to what products suit what skin types so I'm impressed at this range giving so much choice! x

  4. This is a great idea, really interesting!

  9. I've been trying the oily one for a while now, and i'm not sold. I find it a bit drying, and especially since it says combination skin too - i worry about how people with dry/oily skin will cope.

    1. Ugh really? So far all I've been using it for is a base and have to say I really like it but I am super oily haha! What I am doing now is using it both day and night for a month or so to see how I get on and follow up with a full review. Sorry to hear that your experience hasn't been great!

    2. I think it's because Alcohol denat (I think, I just threw the box in the recycling lol) is the third ingredient? It should mattify/base well as you've experienced but alcohol-anything isn't the nicest ingredient to have that high up on a moisturiser, imo. I'm more normal-to-oily too (too oily to use normal skin products, too normal to use these sorts of heavy duty mattifying bases/moisturisers fffuuuu-) so I can't use it constantly. I do like that it's paraben free, though! My other moisturiser (Boots Clear Skin) isn't.

      I might pick up the dull skin one next time I need a moisturiser though. :|a

  10. Oily/combination sounds good, but maybe drying as Nicole says? It hapens a lot that products for oily skin doesn't match a combination one :(

    I'm interested in the one for Dull Skin, maybe it can be light and revitalising for those days you feel "off" :)

    What about using the dry/very dry or normal-to-dry at night in winter? Should it work?

    1. I've only been using it as a make-up base so as I said to Nicole I'm going to use it day and night then follow up with a full review in a month or so. The dry versions I honestly can't comment my skin is far to oily to try them out other than on my hands :( sorry!

    2. I mentioned above, but my thought is that it has an alcohol based ingredient as the third one, so I don't know how it would work on people with dry and oily patches, but I'd be wary because alcohol based ingredients dehydrate my skin a little (and I moisturise while my skin is still damp, and... bleck, it isn't pleasant.)

  11. I might try the one for dry skin, suffering really badly in the cold! xxx

  16. you've just re-written what is on Boots website!!! you haven't even bothered to change up some of the sentences, some are exactly the same. a very unhelpful review in my opinion, offers no new insight to the product other than what we can all go onto Boots or Garnier's website and find for ourselves.

    1. Firstly I have not claimed that they are reviews it is an informative post. Secondly it was the official information supplied to me by Garnier and lastly how can I offer insight on products not aimed at my skin type?
      To use them would break me out and I have added extra information on the oily/combination version. The only version I have not added a little extra insight to is the dry to very dry skin, the rest all have my input!

  17. i love garnier, because it doesn´t use any alcohol in its product so it´s so very smooth to the skin...

  18. Garnier moisturisers and creams are not really my perfect match, but i will definitely try one of these, the concept is very attractive.

  22. I bought Start a fresh for normal to dry skin but it leaves my skin feeling greasy. I have normal to combination skin, so do you think shine be gone will work for me? My skin is pretty much normal but I'm really prone to breakouts and find the top of my forehead near my hairline gets slightly oily and so does my nose and chin but the rest of my face is fairly normal or dry. Just wonder whether you think it would be better, I don't want it to mattify me too much and leave my skin with no glow if you know what I mean
    Thanks!

  23. I'm so excited to try these (the advert did tempt me I must admit) they look so pastel and summery I can't help myself! I'm thinking either 'Start Afresh' or 'Wake Me Up'. Thing is, I don't want to buy the whole tube in case it's not right for me but I'm a little reluctant to get a sample delivered because I have to fill in all my details online. Has anyone filled in the page on Garnier's website and been sent a free sample who can tell me if it's trustworthy and what they thought? Just cautious with these kind of things! :S

    P.s. I was so excited to see your blog post come up when I searched for a review, I love your blog posts and was hoping but not really expecting to see you in the search results! :)

  25. Ive used the cleanser and peeling for my face forever, i can never trade it but i was deeply disappointed with what the BB cream did to my skin so now I am scared to try those :<

  26. Hi, I was simply checking out this blog and I really admire the premise of the article and this is really informative. Airbrush for makeup

  27. I use the one for Dry to Very Dry skin as recently I find my skin to be very dry and OMG it is the best facial moisturiser on the high street for my skin type. Its half price in Superdrug at the moment which is an added bonus. What you said is true about it being a lot thicker but my face feels enriched when I use it and I'm so glad i invest £2.98 in it! Amazing!
