Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Day & Night Cream Review

 If you've been keeping up to date with my recent blog posts, you'll notice that I've been trying out a lot of skincare products recently. One thing I've been searching for in particular is a moisturiser that can cope with my ridiculously dry skin, and that doesn't completely break the bank. So when I saw these two products, the Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Day Cream and Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Gel Night Cream, I couldn't resist giving them a shot.

 When regarding the packaging, it's pretty basic. The reflective boxing is cute and eye-catching, and the pretty blue colour of the containers is nice and bright, however in terms of knowing when to replace them, the Day Cream is a little irritating as there's no way of finding out when it's beginning to run out. The smell of each product is really nice in my opinion, baring in mind I'm not someone who is very sensitive to scents. The Day Cream has a very refreshing scent, but it's nothing too overpowering that it begins to remind me of bathroom cleaner (thank goodness!) The Night Cream has a much more interesting scent however; despite hinting at an obvious pomegranate scent on the packaging, I think it smells a lot more herbal than it did fruity, but I really enjoy it! I find it calming and the perfect soothing smell just before bed, which is a really great and, in my opinion, quite high end-esque addition to a product, so good on you Garnier!

To begin with: the Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Day Cream. My first impressions of this product were really positive, it has a really cooling and calming sensation when applied, and it doesn't feel harsh on the skin at all either. However the level of moisture it applies is, in my opinion, not exactly "super" hydrating. I reckon this would work much better for people who have combination to oily skin, and for those who just want a little touch of moisture in the mornings, rather than those of us who are heavily reliant on a moisturiser to keep our skin comfortable throughout the day.

Last - but certainly not least - is the Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Gel Night Cream. To begin with, I'm a huge fan of the gel formula when it comes to skincare. I love how it feels instantly cooling when applied, and it really does give a real moisture boost to the skin. I am super impressed with this product, so much so that I even use it in the daytime instead of the Day Cream if my skin is feeling especially dehydrated and uncomfortable.


Thank you so much for reading this week, and please be sure to let me know what you thought of these products if you've tried them, or if you have a request for a post I could do in the future!
