Clearly Brighter™ Challenge By Garnier

With the change in seasons, stress and sitting inside at my desk all day – my skin has begun to look a bit dull. I don’t know if it’s an age thing or maybe even a lifestyle thing, but I’ve finally decided to take charge of my skin. I do my best by keeping hydrated throughout the day, eating well and avoid alcohol during the week. But there are some days when my skin still looks dull.

So what’s a girl to do?

I recently partnered up with Garnier to take their Clearly Brighter Challenge. I wanted to see if their product would make a difference on my skin. I tried their new SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 for two weeks to see if it would help with any dullness on my face. 

Before I started using the product my skin was definitely looking tired, dull and I was prone to breakouts. I have combination skin with an oily T-zone and dry cheeks – so it’s tough find the right balance when it comes to good moisturizer.

What I like about this product is that it is loaded with antioxidants and Vitamin C + E, which work to even out skin tone and texture for brighter and smoother skin. I noticed a difference after just two weeks.

It’s a great way to keep that summer glow going and I like how it made my skin look fresh and bright. I am trying my best to wear sunscreen daily and having it built in to my moisturizer makes mornings a million times easier. It takes two beauty steps and combines them into one and I don’t have to think about whether I remembered to put sunscreen on in my morning haze.

The product claims it will give you brighter, smoother skin in just one week.*

What I like about it is that the formula is oil-free, doesn’t clog my pores and is light enough to wear under make-up.

It does not feel greasy at all and has a matte feel to it once it’s absorbed. The smell is also fresh, fruity and floral which instantly wakes me up in the morning. The product comes in an easy pump bottle that you twist to open and close with no cap to lose!

After about two weeks my skin looked fresher, brighter and healthier. Moisturizing on the regular and having that built in sun protection left my skin with a healthy natural glow.

After

Invest in a great moisturizer like Garnier’s SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 and let the formula get to work for you. Be consistent and use it twice a day to get the best results. I know it’s easy to forget to moisturize but you’ll see the benefits in healthier and more hydrated skin when you do.

SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 is available at CVS, Target, Amazon, Rite Aid and other pharmacies and stores across the country.

    I need to get this Clearly Brighter product because I have uneven skin tone. But the skin regime that I always do is moisturize my skin daily and clean my face every night. I do not go to bed with makeup on.

  • Sandy Klocinski

    The first step: cleansing is the most important. What’s the sense of putting the best
    moisturizer, sun protector or serum on skin that’s not been properly
    cleansed? That’s like painting on a poorly prepared canvas. Proper
    cleansing enhances all the steps that follow. All the steps that follow
    never enhance improper cleansing

    Gentle cleansing is the most important step of my skincare routine.
