Garnier Moisture Match Start Afresh Light Softening Cream - For Normal to Dry Skin

As soon as the new Garnier Moisture Match skincare line launched in Australia, I promptly ditched my moisturiser and stepped up to try the new release targeting normal to dry skin (the blue tube!) From day one I knew I’d found something that really worked well with my skin type, which is generally okay but goes through bouts of rough and bumpy skin along with some annoying dry patches here and there.
This particular variation is ‘enriched with blue lotus extract’ which immediately reminded me of the Clarins facial oils, which upped the luxe factor of this affordable cream immediately. I paid around $6-$7 dollars for this tube and love the clean and cute packaging of the whole line. I’ve used this every morning for a few months now and it is still going strong, which means it is definitely bang for your buck. It has kept my face well hydrated, hasn’t broken me out at all and has smoothed out my dry patches making makeup application much more enjoyable than it previously was.

Having said that, a friend of mine was trialling the tube targeting oily skin and didn't get on with it very well. The fact that it is so cheap means throwing caution to the wind won't hurt with this product though, so that is definitely a plus. It's also worth noting that my friend adores some skincare that really doesn't work for me, which emphasizes how different everyone's skincare needs are!

Considering I've been using high(er) end face products for a while, I was so pleased to fall in love with this line so fast. Saving money on my daily moisturiser means that I have more blush money - see how my mind works?!

The Garnier Moisture Match moisturisers retail for $9.99 AUD for 50ml (but is often on sale at Priceline and the supermarket for $6.99!) and is available here.

  1. I'm glad you're having a good experience with this one! I have a sample sachet of the combo/oily one which is lucky because that's my skintype. I'll give it a go and see if I have the same opinion as your friend!

    1. Would love to hear how you get on with it, it's such a great affordable line!

  2. Sounds lovely! I tend to go for moisturizing milks or emulsions because I tend to have slightly oily skin! This looks like a very good and standard type of moisturizer!

    1. I use milk cleansers if my skin is feeling oily but my skin definitely needs more moisture than the milk moisturisers provide nowadays. Standard is a great word to describe this moisturiser, a good stock standard staple :)
