So my face had been really dry lately. Probably from a combination of being sick for weeks, the weather being really hot again, and other variables. But whatever was causing it, it sucked. I was realllllly at my wit's end because I'd tried all of my moisturizer staples and nothing was getting rid of the dry patches by the sides of my nose. (Seriously, is there a worse place to have flaky skin? Why didn't the Skin Gods just go ahead and give me a huge red zit on the tip of my nose to complete the look?) Then I got sent a sample of Garnier's SkinActive Moisture Bomb and the clouds parted and the sun shone down on my face once again! The moisturizer itself is a gel/cream formula and really light, so I wasn't expecting fantastic results, but I was so, so wrong. I've been using it for about ten days or so now and my skin is noticeably softer, the dry patches are 95% gone, and dare I say it? I'm kind of glowy! (Glowy is a very technical term us bloggers use). It has a fresh, clean scent and isn't greasy at all, and it absorbs quickly, but for such a thin formula, it really packs in the moisturizing power. And it's a drugstore deal at around $15 a jar (less if you wait for a coupon, which at CVS is like, every other day). This one's a must buy!
Note: A sample of this product was sent to me by a PR representative working with Garnier
