Garnier Moisture Match for Dry to Very Dry Skin
I picked up this tube of cream for dry to very dry skin as I was hoping the “Moisture Match” part would adjust to suit my skin. My cheeks are the driest part of my face followed by my forehead and my nose is oily. This didn’t quite happen. My skin was definitely moisturised but it looked greasy, especially my nose. I would always have to blot my face while using this. I guess the cream is just a little too thick.
The name has now been changed to Moisture + Nourish (Moisture plus Nourish) which I think is better. We can manually “match” the cream to our skin rather than hoping the cream will match itself! Based on the new names, I would try Moisture + Soft (the blue one) for normal to dry skin as I like the sound of soft skin. My skin doesn’t necessarily need nourishing (pink), radiance (orange) or matifying (green) and the Moisture + Protect (yellow) might not be thick enough for my dry skin.
Garnier Soft Essentials 24 Hour Hydrating Day Cream
These long names are a nightmare for blogging! Anyway, I picked this up because I wanted to try a different Garnier moisturiser in the hope it would be more compatible with my skin. This pink pot is for dry and sensitive skin.
Sometimes I find that the “essential” creams are better for my skin even though they are cheaper than other creams. Maybe my skin prefers the simple life.
I’m not sure about the 24 hour bit but this cream definitely leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised all day. It copes well with my dry cheeks even though it is quite light, and it doesn’t make my nose too oily. I think gel-creams are a winner for my skin. It sinks in nicely and is refreshing – I guess that’s the rose water.
The rose scent is very delicate and actually quite pleasant, considering I usually prefer unscented products for my face.
And the winner is…
Garnier Soft Essentials 24 Hour Hydrating Day Cream. It provides the right amount of moisture without being greasy. It’s also a little cheaper. It is a clear winner for me!
