Garnier introduced Skinactive range last year containing 96% of natural ingredients and I picked up two products from their Rosewater Range- a cleansing milk & toner. Rosewater range is meant for Dry & Sensitive Skin.The range also includes a day cream which I skipped.
Garnier Skinactive Soothing Rosewater Cleansing Milk:
The first step of Rosewater regime is this fabulous gentle cleansing milk. It comes housed in a pink coloured plastic bottle with tiny flip dispenser. The formula is pretty much what is expected of a good working cleanser..white coloured, slightly runny for ease of spreading around & working on it. The brand recommends to take little bit on a cotton round and then wipe across the face but I find it doesn’t work well for me in that way. I like to take little bit into my hand & rubbing directly onto my face with massage for a minute & then wiping it off works way better. Though slightly thinner in consistency it does feel good & moisturising on skin. Though not extremely but good enough not to make skin uncomfortable. I find it pretty good for taking off regular BB or CC creams, blushes, lipsticks and even water resistant mascara & eyeliner. If you are someone wearing very light makeup this should suffice as its not that effective against long wear formulations like heavy duty foundations & waterproof mascaras/liners/lip products. But as the name says its a very gentle skin friendly cleansing milk.It has got an amazing subtle rose fragrance which feels fabulous. Its not something like those heavy artificial fragrances which puts you off. Skin is left feeling clean & fresh.
Overall I love it as I am someone who mostly wears lighter makeup. It does the job perfectly without any discomfort.
Garnier Skinactive Soothing Rosewater Toner:
This is the second step of Rosewater regime: The toner. Its a pale pink coloured liquid with that amazing natural rose fragrance which literally uplifts the senses once dabbed on skin. The toner comes housed in a transparent plastic bottle with a tiny flip nozzle making it easy to dispense just the right amount on a cotton pad. The toner feels absolutely refreshing & is very gentle on skin. Feels very comfortable though not moisturising but not drying either. It’s a simple product which does a good job for everyday skincare. For the price this is a very nice pick when you want to have simple & gentle skincare.
