Discover Garnier SkinActive™ & Establish Great Skincare Habits For The Coming Year!

Garnier wants us all to establish great skincare habits for the coming year.  What a better way to do that than with Garnier new SkinActive™ products!  Crowdtap sent me a kit containing Garnier products to pass out.  I asked my friends and coworkers to try the products, then either take a selfie of them with their favorite product, or a picture of it with an object that will help them with a goal or resolution for the upcoming year!

When I brought these into work to pass out I was surprised at the number of people who were already familiar with what micellar water was & how excited they were to be getting a whole bottle of it.  Hearing more than once, "I love this stuff!"  I've only recently started hearing about it an didn't know too much about it myself.  Micellar water is made up of micelles, nano-sized balls of cleansing oils, soaps, or detergents suspended in water.  These micelles absorb other oils and fats, pulling the impurities from your skin without irritation.  Apparently, it has also been around for hundreds of years but is only now making a comeback!  Did you know that?  I thought it was new technology in skincare!  Also, regular micellar water is not meant to remove heavy foundations or waterproof makeups so Garnier also made a bi-phase micellar water that does! 

  • Retails for $8.99.
  • About The Product: All-in-1 cleanser is surprisingly powerful yet gentle to skin.  It effectively removes makeup, cleanses skin and refreshes. A multi-purpose cleanser that contains Micellar technology. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without rinsing or harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying.
  • How To Use: TO REMOVE EYE MAKEUP -Hold pad over closed eyes for a few seconds, then gently wipe. TO CLEAN SKIN & REMOVE FACE MAKEUP - Gently wipe all over until skin is completely clean from makeup and impurities. Use daily, AM/PM. No need to rinse.

  • Retails for $14.99.
  • About The Product: Designed with our Antioxidant Complex of Vitamin C & E, Pine Bark Essence, and gentle exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxyl Acid (LHA), this fast absorbing, non-greasy formula turns dull, rough skin into smooth, polished-looking skin with a more radiant, even tone. Clinically proven results in a clinical test. In 1 week, reveals two key dimensions of brighter looking skin: improving skin texture, even reducing wrinkles.
  • How To Use: FOR SUNSCREEN USE - Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply at least every 2 hours. Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. 
I got a lot of feedback!  Mostly how everyone loved the micellar water.  Vicki said her daughter had already used up a whole bottle of the moisturizer too!  My coworker Michelle said, "Garnier SkinActive™ is a great product for sensitive skin.  It thoroughly cleansed my sensitive skin without irritation."

The best feedback I received was from Dionna.  She said, "This stuff really works! I suffer from seborrheic dermatitis and when it flares up my forehead and skin under my eyebrows gets really scaly and flaky. I've been using this for the past week and it's kept my flares down. With a little more usage I'm pretty certain it'll clear my forehead completely up!"  That's awesome to hear!  Check back later on because I may get more feedback from her!

I think my favorite of the two was actually the moisturizer.  Usually SPF 15 products are too heavy on my skin and reek of suntan lotion.  When I initially applied it it felt heavy, but it absorbed quickly and didn't leave my skin feeling weighed down.  It actually left it feeling very soft and smelled nice!  I used it more as a daily moisturizer, underneath my makeup, than as a sunscreen.  Applying it only once in the morning.

As far as the resolutions, most of us are focused on health it seems.  I had a photo of healthier snacks like nuts, popcorn, and I just had to throw in there coconut milk chocolate ice cream (which I love to sprinkle crushed gluten free pretzels on top of! YUM!).  Ok, well maybe that's not so healthy, but it's better than the ice cream I used to eat! My friend Michelle used and ornament that says, "Joy," to help inspire her, and Jess wants to spend more time with her cat!  How cute!
