A lot of us spent January blending healthy smoothies but with these ‘blends’ Garnier have done the hard work for us! These body lotions contain a delicious concoction of ingredients that will work wonders on our pasty Winter skin and I’ve made them my ‘Product of the Week’!
Unlike face creams when it comes to body products it tends to be a ‘one size fits all’ policy however Garnier have developed four different formulations for different skin types.
People with normal skin are treated to moisturisers containing argan and camellia oils, those with very dry skin can enjoy blends of royal jelly, honey and propolis, virgin olive oil is the key ingredient for people with dry skin and anyone with sensitive skin can experience the soothing power of oat milk and almond cream. In this review I’m focusing on the last two of ‘Mythic Olive’ and ‘Delicate Oat’ (pictured).
Personally I love pumps when it comes to body care because they dispense the correct amount and there’s less mess. I have the 250ml lotions which retail for €6.95 but if you’re looking for the best value it makes sense to purchase the 400ml bottles which are only slightly more at €9.20.
The first thing I noticed when applying the creams was the gorgeous scents! The ‘Mythic Olive’ blend has an exotic floral fragrance while the ‘Delicate Oat’ version is a powdery musk which contains Vanilla. What’s so impressive is that after wearing them all day you can still smell the fragrance on your skin so they have real staying power. I find that some perfumes don’t even last that long.
I love the fact that they soak in straight away so you can get dressed immediately afterwards. No one wants to be waiting 5 minutes for their body cream to dry when that’s an extra 5 minutes that you could be in bed! Also, like their hand cream if you use it once a day your skin really does feel in much better condition.
One thing that mums should note is that although the ‘Delicate Oat’ version says that it’s great for the whole family, in the small print they state that it’s not suitable for children under 3 years old.
Has anyone else tried this range? What did you think?
