Garnier SkinActive skincare is a new line of products that was designed specifically for a modern busy lifestyle. SkinActive is infused with antioxidants and helps skin feel more refreshed, clean and bright. I had the opportunity to try multiple products from the SkinActive line and here are my impressions.
Micellar Cleansing Water Retail: $8.99
I remember the first time I saw this product for sale at Walmart. I kind of laughed to myself and thought, “why would anyone buy special water to wash their face with?” So, of course, this was the first product in my package that I had to try! First, I researched the science of it. With regular face washing, the soap and water have to be rubbed on your face to remove the dirt and make up. With Micellar cleansing water, the tiny micelle’s work like a magnet and attract dirt and make up, so you basically just rinse your face clean!To use, you saturate a cleansing pad, or cotton pad with the Micellar water, blot your face, gently holding over each area for a few seconds. You keep repeating until your pad is clean. Less rubbing of your skin means less wrinkles later on, ladies! I am sold on this one!
Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector Retail: $16.99
This is a fast absorbing formula that contains antioxidant vitamins C and E, pine bark essence, and gently exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxyl Acid (LHA). This promotes cell turnover and will reveal younger, brighter skin and less obvious dark spots over time. This formula is clinically proven to work and that impresses me! I have been using it on a few dark spots and they are beginning to look a little lighter. It is also oil free.
Actively Hydrating Daily Lotion Retail: $12.99
This daily lotion is oil and fragrance free and has a broad spectrum SPF of 15. It is useful for all skin types, even sensitive skin. This formula instantly locks in moisture for 24 hours! It has vitamins C and E and antioxidant fruit water. It absorbs easily and feels great on my skin. I like that it will lock in moisture and protect from sunburn, too!
Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer Retail: $14.99
This is another clinically proven product. It also has vitamin C, E and LHA. It has a broad spectrum SPF of 15 to prevent sunburn and helps your skin to looked visibly brighter and polished-looking in one week! The LHA helps your skin to gently exfoliate daily and your skin looks and feels smoother and brighter every day. I like products that promote cell turnover and make me look younger and more awake! This daily lotion does all that!
Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser/Mask Retail: $7.99
This is an oil free product that can be used as a daily cleanser and detox mask. It has kaolin clay and charcoal to deeply cleanse your skin. It is perfect for people with oily skin and helps clear up acne prone skin. It doesn’t feel gritty and can be used daily. I love the scent, it smells, fresh, slightly like menthol and it feels so nice on my skin! If you use it as a mask, you put a thin layer on wet skin and leave it on for 5 minutes. After you rinse it, you will notice how soft and clean your skin will feel!
Miracle Anti-Fatigue Wake-Up Hydra-Gel Moisturizer Retail: $16.99
This is my favorite out of all the products I tried. This is another oil free product with an antioxidant formula that includes Wildberry along with vitamins C and E. It also has 15% of a humectant known as Hydra-Glycerin. It provides around the clock hydration and is perfect for dry to very dry skin. It felt silky as I put it on and made my skin feel so soft and smooth.
There is certainly a facial product for everyone with Garnier’s new SkinActive formulas! You can find them at most major retailers.
