Lou's Reviews :: Garnier Clean and Soft Day Cream

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Whilst mooching around Superdrug a couple of weeks ago, a pretty good offer caught my eye. Garnier were selling 2 Daycreams for £3.99. Considering they usually retail for £5.06 each, I thought this was a brucey bargain not to be missed!
 

I decided to try one for Normal/Combination skin (green pot) and one for dry skin (pink pot). I wish I had just bought 2 pink pots now because I have dry skin and don't know why I tried to kid myself that I don't- what a goon.

I have used the green pot a couple of types and found the texture of the product to be a little 'gloopy' and when rubbing into my skin it felt as though a layer of film was left behind. It looked completely fine (I didn't look like I was made of plastic or anything), but I just felt a bit yakky.


The pink pot of cream, however, is lovely. It has a really pleasing fresh, girly scent, sinks in wonderfully and does leave my skin feeling hydrated. I have to say, it doesn't stand up to my beloved Liz Earle moisturiser (see review on that HERE), but this is a pretty high benchmark, and for a drug store product, I think it is excellent.

I love the packaging- anything pink is a winner in my books and it is small enough to sling in the bottom of my Mary Poppins-esque handbag. Perhaps I shall do an updated 'What's In My Bag Video'- yay or nay?

If I were to see another good offer like this, I would snap up 2 more Garnier Day Creams, but I'm not sure if I would part with £5.06 for one.

For all the official science and Garnier blurb (I was a bit slack on the 'real info' front today!), click HERE.

Hmmm, so that wraps up my fairly bllarrghhhh good but not woweepoopypants brilliant review. What are your thoughts? Have you ever tried this? I would really like to know because I feel a touch on the fence!

Toodlepip!

  3. The packaging is nice, but I'm put off Garnier atm, seems like they're bringing out constant new products that aren't quite perfect yet for the sake of it :/

  4. A few weeks ago I watched some thing on BBC3 and I found out that the oil out of sheep wool is used in some moisturisers and other products like that, so I binned all my moisturisers and lip products (such as carmex), and now iv been trying to find other things to replace them. Im not against using animals, but I thought of rubbing sheep into my skin and lips makes me feel a bit sick! I think next time in superdrug ill be looking at the ingredients and maybe buy the pink one! Like you said, anything pink is a winner!!

  8. I might give this a go - I have dry skin and am on the search for a prettier alternative to Aldi's great moisturiser. I'd love to see a 'what's in my bag' post by the way!

  12. Defo to an updated whats in my bag i love your videos! I too have tried the green version of this cream and although i loved the smell and it did moisturise my skin I experienced the exact same thing almost like a film left on your face which i did not like! Will probably use it up but shall not repurchase! Thanks for the review always great to hear another opinion on a product...p.s your blog is fab! x

  13. What´s in my bag video yeeeeey!:)
    my mom´s been using Garnier moisturisers for some time and she´s really content with it. I´m a big Nivea fan but I might consider buying this green one if I find them at a good price somewhere x

  20. I've tried the green one and it was ok but not the bestn so I went off and never looked at the range again, maybe I should try the pink one!! I had the pink facial wipes and they smelled SO good, I don't suppose you know if the pink pot has the same scent? x
