Blogger's Christmas Beauty Brawl Day 1: Moisturiser

My first mini review for the Christmas Beauty Brawl! If you're interested in finding out more about this mini series I'm doing this month, you can read all about it here.

Today's review is my current day moisturiser: Garnier Moisture Radiance Daily Energising Gel Moisturiser (talk about a mouthful!). I've been using this product for a couple of weeks now, which I know kind of goes against the whole idea of a first impressions review, but I think for things like moisturisers it's important to use it for a while to know what you really think about it.

PRODUCT QUALITY: As you can probably tell by the name of the product, the moisturiser has a gel-like texture to it. I've used a few different moisturisers with this texture before (read my review of The Body Shop moisturiser here) and they're definitely one of my favourites to use as they feel really refreshing on the skin. It is also quite light as far as moisturisers go which is good for me as my skin can be quite oily. I'm not sure whether I've noticed my skin being more radiant as it claims to do, but it does make me feel more energised - or at least more awake - thanks to its texture and cooling effect.

PRICE: I bought this product from Boots when it was half price (it still is now along with its sister products - you can find them all here) and so it only cost me £1.99. At such a bargain, I'd say this is one not to be missed!

PACKAGING: The tube is quite small and compact so it's great if you're travelling and need something easy to pack. For the price, I'd say the packaging is pretty standard - nothing fancy but it doesn't look dirt cheap which is always a bonus! Of course, with it being small you get less product in it, but I wouldn't expect more for the price.

OVERALL VERDICT: Pretty good little moisturiser! It does its job and I love the refreshing feeling of the gel moisturiser. If you haven't tried a moisturiser with this texture before and you don't want to spend a lot, I'd definitely recommend trying this one out first.
