Garnier Moisture Match - Goodbye Dry

I was super excited when I saw the advert on TV for these little nuggets of gold. Why had no one thought of this before? A tailor-made moisturiser split into 5 different formulas to help aid our skin moisture troubles. Jack pot!

I’m always seeking out new products to quench my skins thirst and I’d only ever buy anti-ageing or skin renewing moisturisers (anti-ageing products contain more oils). But recently I’ve learnt to grab my beauty spade and explore a little more. I had already purchased the Origins Intensive Over Night Hydrating Mask which I’d highly recommend and you can find dozens of reviews on the internet but I needed something to use every day. It was a coin toss between the Goodbye Dry and the Wake Me Up which are both suited for dry skin. But since my skin has been misbehaving recently Goodbye Dry seemed like a better purchase of the two.

Buy it. Buy it. Buy it. This stuff is worth its weight in gold. The cream formula is only lightly scented by the ingredients that include Camellia Oil, Shea Butter and Omega 3 and 6 (a natural acid to plump, soften and promote glowing skin) and so the smell is pretty divine. The texture is very thick but firm so you only need to use a small amount which I guess is a bonus as you can pop it under the category “lasting products”.

Once applied the moisturiser sinks in a dream and almost instantly I noticed my skin felt softer and the surface texture was a lot smoother. I definitely noticed this more once I applied my foundation as the finished result looked more flawless and smooth which is why I’d also highly recommend this product as a makeup primer for those with normal to dry skin.

But the biggest benefit of this product was the fact it kept my skin hydrated for the whole day and that meant my usual patching and flaking of makeup on my nose was still in place and as fresh as when I’d applied it earlier that morning.

The only negative I have to say about the Garnier Moisture Match is that it leaves a slight shine once its sunken in. But I applied a little Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder and it left a matt finish. 

But finally a darn product that keeps my skin hydrated, my makeup in place and my skin texture as smooth as when I've just exfoliated. And as they're only £5.99 I think i will be purchasing the Wake Me Up gel formula.

  1. Thanks for this review lovely! I struggle finding primers with having dry skin as they seem to exaggerate my dry patches, but this may be that problem solved :)

  3. This moisturiser looks lovely, I'm a bit fan of Garnier products. I have dry/combination skin and never seem to find the right balance, this sounds like it would be quite nice for my dry patches though.

    1. You don't need to use it all over the fact. Sometimes I just put a little more around the dryer areas. But the little tube is going to last a while. X

  10. Just picked this up too and I am loving it. Will be doing a review soon and I've ordered a sample of Wake Me Up as I think this might be a bit lighter for my dry skin in summer. So glad to have found a blogger with dry skin, everyone I follow seems to be oily. Looking forward to reading more reviews from you :)
