Brand Focus: Garnier

Hunting for affordable drugstore cosmetics is probably our most favourite past time, besides horrendously singing along to the Top 40 whilst painting our nails, faces concealed with a fresh Lush face mask. But I guess we’re not the only ones, right? Anyway as we were saying, once you find one gem from a brand it lures you to try another, and another until you find out your top picks. This is what happened with Garnier which is why we thought we’d share with you just a few of our favourites from them.IMG_20150726_113102
Firstly, one that we have spoken about in a favourites post is the Garnier moisturiser with SPF 20. We won’t talk too much about this product as we have already mentioned it, so if you would like to find out more you can check it out through the search bar. It’s just a great, simple product that does what it says. We have also recently been enjoying to use the Garnier Fresh Refining Toner for combination to oily skin. In the Summer heat our skin tends to get more oily than usual so this is a great product to get rid of excess oils and leaves the skin feeling smooth and fresh. We find the best way to use it is to apply to a cotton pad and sweep it across the face after cleansing.


Another product we’ve also enjoyed using is the fresh cleansing lotion. This is quite a thick creamy formula which helps add moisture so is better for dry skin. In terms of makeup removal it isn’t the best as quite a few cotton pads are needed. However, on minimal makeup days this is definitely most reached for. For days wear we tend to wear heavier makeup our favourite solution has to be the Garnier Micellar water. This product is great at removing all forms of makeup. It is definitely  our skincare staple. It claims to last 200 uses and we wouldn’t disagree, as you only need the smallest amount to remove your makeup. We would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for new makeup removal as opposed to wipes which is a big no no in our books for makeup removal. IMG_20150726_113146IMG_20150726_113359

These were our top 4, do you agree with any of them? We would love to know what you love from Garnier so we ca use it as an excuse to try out more! Are there any other brand you would like us to focus on? We would love to know so be sure to tell us in the comments.

Love Curls & S x

  1. I’m in the States and I just got my first Garnier Micellar Water from the UK yesterday. It did such a marvelous job practically melting the makeup away. It took all but a little bit of waterproof mascara off but I used it again after the shower and it came right off. Your review on these products is spot-on. I wish they were more readily available here :).
