Garnier Fresh Essentials 24hr Hydrating Day Cream | Review

Wednesday 27 November 2013

After being so pleased with my Garnier Moisture Match (review here) I decided that I'd pick up another by Garnier and give it a try. The Fresh Essentials 24hr Hydrating Day Cream caught my eye whilst I was browsing feelunique and into my online basket it went. My skin changes from season to season and I'd found it changing from normal/dry to normal/combination at the start of Autumn.

The pot is very lightweight and neat, it doesn't take up too much space in my makeup bag although it's not as convenient as a tube. The only pro to having a pot to a tube is that you can get all of the product out easily, whereas with a tube, I get to near the bottom and it's such a pain to get the final bit out!

The moisturiser has a gel consistency and feels cooling and refreshing on your skin. It soaks in fairly quickly and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and not greasy. It has a mild fruity fragrance which I enjoy, it helps make me feel more "fresh" in the morning, I'm not sure why!

I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and I haven't noticed any problems with it irritating my skin or causing any breakouts although if my skin has any dry patches, it doesn't do much to help with the dry areas and my foundation clings to them a bit, I'm not sure if that's the foundation or the moisturiser at fault there... Also, the moisturiser is for normal/combo skin and not geared towards dry skin, so I can't really complain about that!

Overall, I'm pleased I picked it up although when it runs out, I'll probably try a different one just because I like to experiment. It does everything it says on the box and you can't ask for more than that! I picked mine up for £4.85 from feelunique but it can be found at Boots and Superdrug for £4.99.

What do you think to highstreet moisturisers? Do you prefer high-end?


  1. Just came across your blog and I've read so many of your posts already. I have this and I find it so much better than high end cream's. Another one I swear by is the No7 range. I highly recommend them!


    1. Ooh thanks, I'll have to take a look at the No7 range! I have a toner by them that I liked so thanks for the heads up :-) xx
