Garnier Moisture Bomb Day and Night Creams

The release of the SkinActive Moisture Bomb Day and Night Creams was one I felt lucky to be able to try. Garnier is one of those brands that always seems to pass me by, doesn't call out my name or capture my attention.  Put me in a room with water features and some amazing packaging and that attention is caught.

The experts at Garnier created Moisture Bomb from the belief that excellent moistursation is fundamental for plump and glowing skin.  Moisture Bomb is designed to recharge and revitalise the skin with moisture whilst also protecting it from external aggressors - think pollution and free radicals.  The inspiration for the range is inspired by Asian Skincare, something that during the last 6 months has really become the 'in thing' with some brands.  Moisture Bomb uses the latest innovations in hydration, with a unique water-break texture which is designed to deliver an intense moisture hit which leaves the skin feel super smooth, moisturised but not at all greasy.


Garnier Moisture Bomb Day and Night Creams

The day cream, which is a 3-in-1 super-hydrating cream with SPF10 (I would like to see this in the 30's) uses a high concentration of glycerin and water with some vitamins and antioxidants - Pomegranate and Amla (Indian Gooseberry) thrown in, to penetrate deep into the skins epidermis to provide what is called a tri-action mechanism which serves to restore, renew and nourish your skin for up to 24 hours!  Now that is a big claim, one which is often thrown about quite freely, but to some extent, I have found it to be almost true with this cream, in so much as it leave my skin feeling soft and moisturised all day, but I am not awake 24/7 and apply a night cream.

With a pump action dispenser, the texture is lightly scented and silky smooth. Once on the skin, it literally begins to absorb before you have to chance to massage it in, but in doing so, there is not one sign of anything greasy left behind and the moisture hit is instant, you can feel the difference immediately and it works well on your hands, though that is not the intended use! Priced around £5.29 for a 50ml tub, you can find it stocked online from places like Lookfantastic or on the Highstreet from Superdrug.

Garnier Moisture Bomb Super-Recharging Night Gel-Cream is described as being a product which works symbolically with your body's natural rest, relaxation and regeneration regime - when you are asleep basically.  Moisture Bomb helps your skin to recharge and recover a healthier more youthful look whilst you sleep. Using a 15% concentration of plant serum (7% for the day cream) to re-plump the look of fine lines and hydrate up to 10 layers (yes TEN) of skin to guarantee up to 72 hours of moisture/hydration.  It contains a potent antioxidant mixture of Vitamin C and Vitamin E, Pomegranate and Amla which again help to protect the skin leaving you wake up to fresh, smooth, plump and healthy looking skin.

I really like the texture of this gel-cream, it is silky smooth and bouncy to the touch and applies like a dream, you only need two small pea sized amounts to cover your entire face and it disappears into the skin incredibly quickly, again leaving no greasy trace behind and no stains on your pillow.  In the morning after using this, my skin always feels amazingly hydrated and nourished.  For me it is a product I will use when my skin needs something a little bit special to work from the inside out because it feels more of a treat than an every day cream, which of course is the intention.  Priced at £7.99 for a 50ml tub, you can find it stocked online from places like Lookfantastic or on the Highstreet from Superdrug.

So two fantastic, purse friendly skin creams from Garnier which you need to try!

  7. I haven't used a Garnier product in YEARS, but this has really caught my attention. I love the idea of a team of day and night creams that work together to keep your skin moisturised - mine is so dry at the moment

  11. Great that it isn't greasy! I'm a fan of Garnier actually they always do quality items for affordable prices. I like that you only need a pea size too for face cream and that it soaks up easily - hate when you have to pile up, you know?
