Garnier Moisture Bomb Night Cream // Review

As someone who suffers from perpetually dry skin, I'm constantly on the lookout for new products to try tackle the problem. Whilst in Boots a few weeks ago, I came across a new product from Garnier targeted at dehydrated skin. With its promise of 'recharging, replumping and hydrating up to 10 layers of skin', I decided to give it a go and have been using it for just over a week now. 

I picked up the night cream version of the product as I felt that it would just be that little bit more moisturising as night creams usually are. As well as the promise of hydration, the cream's benefits also include anti-dullness, less irregularities and reduced fine lines. These are all achieved with the help of super fruit extracts, pomegranate and amla as well as plant serum.

The first thing I noticed about the product was it's gel-like texture. It felt a bit weird at first but I soon got used to it and its cooling effect on the skin. My skin absorbed the cream well as I rubbed it in, it didn't feel greasy or heavy. The texture almost became watery as I worked it into the skin, but again that's something I got used to. 

After using it for one day, I immediately noticed a difference in my skin. I often find that I never achieve lasting hydration with other creams and within a few hours, my skin is back to its usual dry texture. With this cream however, I woke up with my skin still feeling hydrated and smooth, leaving a nice base for me to apply my make up on to. The hydration seemed to last throughout the day, giving weight to Garnier's claim of 72 hours of continuous hydration. I wouldn't say that I personally would get 72 hours of hydration just from one application but I definitely was able to achieve moisturised skin for an extended period, which is very rare for me.

I'm super impressed with this cream and will definitely be trying out the day version to see if its just as good. It's very rare that I find a moisturiser as good as this for my skin as it's usually very stubborn when it comes to hydration! I would definitely recommend trying this out if you suffer from really dry skin as it's such a great product for the drugstore price!
