First Impressions: Garnier Pure Daily Treatment Moisturiser

I picked this up from Wilkinson’s at the weekend in the half-price reductions aisle for a mere £2.26. I’ve been after a new moisturiser for a while now, I haven’t been using one lately as I couldn’t find one that I liked, then I remembered my love of this Boots moisturiser which is for oily skin and worked really well for me. So when I saw this on the shelf I thought it might be similar and it was cheaper than the Boots one so in the basket it went.
This is what it claims (the box has a lot of information on it!):
  • Helps clear imperfections
  • Refines skin texture
  • Tightens pores
  • 24 Hour hydrating action
  • Anti-shine
  • Anti-imperfections
  • It’s a double action moisturiser, it helps to clear impurities on the skin while also keeping the skin hydrated.
  • It prevents imperfections from appearing
  • An excellent base for make-up
Some info on the Garnier Pure range:
  • The Pure range has been specially developed to help fight imperfections and excess sebum (oil!)
  • Active, natural ingredients such as Zinc which is known for it’s purifying properties, Salicylic Acid which is known for it’s exfoliating properties and Eucalyptus extract which soothes the skin.
Who is this product aimed at?
  • Combination/oily skin
  • If your skin is prone to hormonal/stress/pollution based break outs.
What I thought when I first tried it:
  • It has a scent, it’s not a bad scent but there definitely is one.
  • The texture is more of a gel type thing rather than the traditional moisturiser which is more of a cream.
  • You don’t need a lot of product to cover your whole face.
  • It feels refreshing and cooling on the skin.
  • It takes about 5 minutes to completely sink in.
  • Skin is mattified and feels smoother after it has sunk in.

I’m really impressed with it so far! Think I’m going to have to check out some of the other products in the Garnier Pure range.
I will also continue to use this for the rest of the month and will let you know the results!
Have you tried this moisturiser? Or any of the other products in the Garnier Pure range?


  1. I've tried this and didn't really find it much good, I think I gave it to my mum! Great price though, I always forget about shops like Wilkinson who have the same products that Boots do but for half the price!

  2. This sounds amazing! Definitely let us know how it goes, sounds like the perfect thing for my skin xxx

  3. I use Garnier face wipes, in my late teens I developed sensitive skin and they are brilliant. I think I am definatly going to have to check this one out.

  4. aah great review, I'd love to see how you get on with it.

    I love the pricetag even more!

  10. Must get myself along to Wilko's. I have been a huge fan of this moisturiser for a few years now. Lovely blog btw xo


  11. it worked the most effectively with my acnes skin in comparison with other products I tried before. I think its v good but not sure if I can heal my skin with this one completely.. bc I dont have more new pimples when I use this, but still I have old acnes brown color on my skin.
