Holiday/Vacation Preparation with Garnier


Happy Friday lovelies!

Exciting news! (well exciting for me anyway) I’m flying to Istanbul next month and I cannot bloody wait! I’m seriously lacking some vitamin D (sunshine is non existent in the UK) so I’m looking forward to relaxing, partying and baking in the sun. Therefore my brand new Garnier products couldn’t have arrived in better time!


Sensitive Advanced Sun Protection

These are the products I’m most excited about! Admittedly I never wear sun protection, I know I know (naughty Eleasha!) I’m a little stubborn and because I know I have natural protection (melanin overload) I never purchase sun creams/lotions even when I’m about to go on holiday. Well Garnier came to the rescue this year with their new sensitive advanced protective mist and cream. Firstly it’s SPF 50+, that’s some serious protection right there! Especially good if you have fair or sensitive skin. Secondly it’s non-greasy (nothing worse than feeling like a greasy mess in the hot sun) and water resistant so you don’t have to re-apply it everytime you want to take a dip in the pool. Finally you won’t end up looking like the creature from the blue lagoon! You know exactly what I’m talking about, when you slather sun lotion all over your body and you somehow turn blue/purple. Well you don’t have to worry about that with these products, it does leave a slight sheen and have a slight scent but nothing too dramatic.


Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water/Wipes

I’m a huge fan of a good cleansing wipe, I’ve been a loyal fan of the Simple wipes for many years but it’s definitely time for a change now. I’ve never tried anything that’s infused with micellar oil before and I was very impressed! One thing I’ve always struggled with, with cleansing wipes is that they never remove stubborn eye make-up! Well finally I’ve found wipes that successfully removes eye make-up due to the infused oil. As for the cleansing water, I’ve never seen cleansing water infused with oil before. As you know oil and water don’t mix so physically seeing the oil float on top of the water reassures you that’ you can easily remove stubborn eye make-up and lip products. Two amazing products, which makes make-up removal so much easier and hassle free!


SkinActive Moisture Bomb

I wouldn’t call myself a night cream kind of girl….until I tried moisture bomb that is! This night cream is so lightweight, in-fact I wouldn’t technically call it a cream, as it’s a gel based moisturiser, which means it’s non-greasy. A perfect solution if you’re worried about waking up a oily mess!



BB Body No Streaks Bronzer

This was the only product in the collection that was a total miss for me! Simply because it’s a bronzer and let’s face it, I don’t need to get any darker. In-fact all it did was leave my skin grey and ashy (not a good look). Don’t let me put you off though, of course if you have a lighter skin tone then this might be perfect for you to achieve a sun-kissed glow.


Ultimate Blends Body Hydrating Lotion

I always say you can never have too many body lotions/creams. It’s seriously my guilty pleasure, I always try to stock up on as many as I can because if there’s one skincare product I cannot live without it’s body lotion. So I’m delighted to add these two brand new products to my collection. The hydrating lotion is heavily scented with argan/camellia oils and has a fairly thin consistency. Whereas the soothing hydrating lotion is a little thicker and has a fresh, light scent. Both great products and do a fantastic job at moisturizing your skin.
