New Garnier Moisture Bomb 3 in 1 Day Cream & Super Recharging Gel Night Cream

I'm sure you know how much I love a new skincare product, and when a product is made specifically for dehydrated skin and has the words 'moisture bomb' in the title, it just becomes too hard to resist. I was in Boots the other day and I spotted 2 brand new products from Garnier; a day cream and a night cream. Obviously the name jumped out at me, but also the fact that I hadn't seen or read anything about them made me very curious indeed. The next thing I knew, they'd both tripped, fallen off the shelf and into my basket. It seems to happen to me a lot come to think of it!

The lighter textured of the two, this is marketed as a day cream, as usually people like something a little bit lighter through the day. It's really, really light considering it's a cream for dehydrated skin. I would usually expect something a bit richer which did worry me at first. Given that, it actually does pretty well in hydrating the skin and keeping it plump and soft. I do think that it would be slightly too lightweight if I was to use it without a facial oil, but as I use one of those every day anyway, it's not much of an issue for me. How is it a 3 in 1 you say? Well, they claim it:
  1. Rehydrates for 24hours
  2. Reduces the appearance of fine lines
  3. Anti-oxidant and UVA/UVB Protection
As a day cream targeted at dry & dehydrated skintypes, It does the job pretty well. Is it the best I've ever tried? I'd say not, simply because I think it's slightly too light in texture. I'm thinking it will be great during the summer months, though.

Now this, I love! I'm usually one for a very heavy, rich cream that sits on the skin at night time, but I do think my skin prefers this. It's a gel cream, so it's very cooling (almost like a sorbet - think The Body Shop Aqua Boost Sorbet). Garnier claims it:
  1. Offers 72hours continuous hydration
  2. Hydrates upto 10 layers of skin
  3. Recharges & replumps skin
I absolutely love how this makes my skin feel. It soaks straight in and leaves an almost velvet feel to the skin. I would definitely repurchase this as my night cream.

What's your favourite cream duo?

  2. I've been using their Pure skin range for years as a teenager and loved it, especially for the lighter texture. Now that my skin's a lot more dry I'm tempted to give that night cream/gel a go! I'm currently obsessed with the Clinique Moisture Surge cream which makes any dry patches invisible xx
