When it comes to winter the first thing I notice about my skin is how my summer glow begins to fade and my skin and hair begin to resemble a dried piece of fruit. You know the leather-looking kind? Yep, that’s me. My skin gets so dry as winter kicks in and my hair begins to feel like straw. So I’m always trying new products to help keep my summer skin, hair and makeup glowing and this year Garnier has made my top 10 list with these fantastic products!
I’m going to start with the top of my list — Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream + Blur Miracle Skin Perfector and Garnier Skin Naturals Fresh Make-up Removing Cloths. These two items are going to forever be in my morning and night facial regime. Why? Because I cannot say enough about them.
The BB Cream is one of the softest and most perfect creams going. It covers my face making it feel silky smooth and not oily and within days I noticed my blemishes disappearing, and trust me I get blemishes even at 42 years old. So having this Garnier gem which I’d never used before is like liquid gold in a bottle to me.
And the Garnier Skin Naturals Fresh Make-up Removing clothes are the bomb! I thought I’d found my perfect make-up remover using Garnier Clean Plus Make-up remover which I still use, but these handy little clothes finish off what I miss scrubbing my face. They remove all the dirt you don’t see, everything even hard to remove make-up comes off easily and my skin feels fresh which I love!
As far as dry shampoos go and I’ve tried many, Garnier Fructis Volume Extended Dry Shampoo is one of the better ones. Though I still prefer actually washing my hair once every five days to allow the oils to build up. This is something I would definitely pack when camping in the bush so my hair doesn’t attract unwanted creatures in the middle of the night.
I’m in love with Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease Dry Finishing Spray. It is easy to use, smells terrific and although I don’t use finishing spray often, this one isn’t as sticky as many others on the market, so it doesn’t clump your hair or make it feel like straw!
Okay truth: I didn’t actually like Garnier Ombrella Ultra-Fluid Lotion for the Face. Maybe because my face is overly sensitive to certain types of products and I broke out after using it. It’s a strong lotion but goes on silky smooth. I gave it to my mom and she’s using it daily and absolutely loves it.
Garnier Ombrella Mineral Lotion for kids ranks right up there with Banana Boat which my son can’t stand the smell of. He loves Garnier products because they smell good and since he’s sensitive to lotions he said he likes how it doesn’t feel like he has lotion on his skin. So I guess that’s a good thing.
