I’m sure all of our resident beauty buffs are well aware that a spade is never just a spade when it comes to beauty. So it’s fair to say that when Garnier releases a new range of body lotions to get rid of dry skin and soothe sensitive skin, they’re going to have a point of difference.
Not only is the range of body lotions supremely nourishing for dry skin, but it also caters to individual skin needs providing lotions to soothe sensitive skin, condition dull skin, repair dry skin and many more. You can also choose your preferred scent, like mango, honey or cocoa butter – just to name a few! As well as that, each one of the five variants contains wonder ingredient L-Bifidus, an active ingredient that works in unison with the naturally derived ingredients in the formula to activate and optimise the skin’s own natural hydration and deliver a moisturisation effect that lasts for up to seven days.
But don’t just take our word for it, check out what the Trial Team had to say about their road-test…
“The Garnier Body intensive 7 day aloe vera extract hydrating lotion comes in a huge 400ml bottle which will last for months even with daily application. The lotion is a lovely white fluid that has very little fragrance, which is my preference, as I don’t like strongly fragranced body products as they can interfere with my perfume. The product is lovely to rub into the skin as it is almost immediately absorbed. By the time that I have finished my second leg the first leg is absorbed and silky smooth. I have never experienced any body product that is absorbed that quickly. Even though the product is absorbed really quickly, your skin is beautifully smooth, nourished and feels that way for days. This is the perfect product for me because even when I revert to my slack ways my skin is still looking fresh and moisturised in between applications.” Rating: 4/5 – Katek1
“The lotion is non-greasy and it absorbed so quickly into my skin. It has a white texture and with just a few strokes it was in my skin with no residue, I was honestly surprised at how quickly it disappeared. I decided to apply it to only one of my legs and leave the other leg without lotion for 24 hours and there was a huge difference. I cannot believe how smooth and hydrated my Garnier Lotion leg was, it was amazing. ”¨The lotion isn’t a thick consistency but isn’t too runny. It was just right for a quick application and that didn’t leave your hands feeling all greasy. ”¨One thing that frustrates me about most lotions is that they don’t absorb quickly into the skin and if you want get into clothes shortly after there is friction and you feel ‘icky’. The Garnier Intensive lotion doesn’t have any problems… five minutes after applying the lotion I could get into my skinny jeans with no problems it was fantastic. ”¨I have noticed such a difference to my skin. It is definitely more hydrated and feels a lot softer. This is an excellent everyday product that I highly recommend. This will be great for winter when skin is dry and cracked. You could easily miss a day and your skin wouldn’t feel dry or sore, which I get after missing a day with other body moisturisers.” Rating: 4/5 – Beautalicious
“The soft scent of honey is pleasant without overpowering and the texture of this cream is silky and rich. My dry skin just loved it and felt moisturised continually as I used it morning and night, especially on legs. I like knowing it contains L-Bifidus and Honey doing good things for my sensitive skin, and the dryness certainly seems improved after a week of regular use. This is a cream I would like to have on hand in every season and I would buy it again.” Rating: 5/5 – Moonchild
”I was lucky to receive this product as part of the Trial Team. I loved the packaging, and I was actually quite surprised that the bottle was so big! It has a really fresh and fruity scent that lasts for ages (but wasn’t overpowering). The lotion was a little too runny, but absorbed well and left my skin feeling soft and smooth for about half the day – but certainly not for seven days! The more I used it, the softer and more hydrated my skin felt.” Rating: 4/5 – Noosim
“For the past week, I’ve been trialling the shea butter variant of Garnier’s new Intensive 7 Days range of moisturisers, and my skin has never looked or felt better. Admittedly, the skin on my body has always been pretty neglected, compared to my face, but it’s hard to stick to a moisturising routine if the outcome isn’t what you expect. I’ve had no trouble at all remembering to apply this silky cream – it has a lot of slip, so it’s very easy to apply quickly, and it’s absorbs and dries almost instantly. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling clammy, tacky or greasy, like other intensive moisturisers and body butters can. My skin feels smooth, supple and strong, which is exactly what I want from a moisturiser.” Rating: 4/5 – Frannybee
