Product Reviews for Moms
My skin has dry patches from the dry weather in Minnesota. My skin also has freckles from growing up in Florida. Also, from Florida, I learned important lessons about sun protection – so when BzzAgent sent me a free sample of the newest beauty balm from Garnier (Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector), I was happy to give it a try. Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector is also formulated with vitamin C – an antioxidant that is supposed to make your skin glow youthfully. It also has an SPF 15 UVA/UVB sunscreen.
First impressions of Garnier Skin Renew: It goes on easily with a light touch – which is especially important around delicate eye areas. The cream doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. Additionally, I have a few patches of dry skin here and there on my cheeks. Those patches were immediately hydrated and some of the uneven coloring and skin tones were smoothed out. I didn’t notice that radiance that Garnier said it was supposed to deliver, but the spot coverage is good and it feels good on the skin.
Later impressions: As the day wore on, Garnier Skin Renew BB lost some of it’s effective coverage. I don’t know if the cream melted off or what, but the coverage definitely waned and I could start seeing spots beneath the surface again. The dry areas were also more noticeable. Since the Garnier Skin Renew is so lightweight, however, it wasn’t a chore to simply apply more to get the same results. As I have to continually reapply it through the day, I will probably use Garnier Skin Renew when I am expecting to be outside a good portion of the day and need sun protection. It will not be replacing my foundation. It will be great for sitting around the pool or a cookout outside when I need light coverage and SPF.
Pros: My skin was immediately hydrated feeling and my skin imperfections were less noticeable. Garnier BB didn’t make my skin feel like it was heavily made up. I am going on vacation to Florida in a week (where the temps are already getting warm), so I will appreciate some lightweight coverage. I also love the fact that it’s got an SPF 15 in it. While you can apply sunscreen beneath your cosmetics, putting the sunscreen directly in the product simplifies the beauty routine and exemplifies a companies commitment to healthy skin care.
Wishlist: I wish it came in more colors. Garnier Skin Renew only comes in two shades – Light/Medium and Medium/Deep. Obviously, I also wish it was longer lasting. While it’s easy to reapply, it’s not convenient to have to reapply it throughout the day.
