For a while now I Have been using the Clinique three-step system and my favourite has been the gel moisturiser as I love the feel of it on my skin. After using this moisturiser for over 4 years it started to not hydrate my skin as much as it used to, this could be due to getting older and into my mid twenties.
I decided to upgrade my moisturiser by buying the same gel moisturiser but the extended thirst relief. This moisture surge is quite expensive but I haven’t come across another moisturiser like it. Its texture is a gel form which sinks into your skin. It leaves your skin feeling as if there is a protected layer on your skin which keeps your skin hydrated throughout the day. This jar is only 50ml but it goes a long way as you don’t need to use alot. The Clinique moisturiser can be bought from Debenhams and House of Fraser.
The other week when I was in Superdrugs I noticed that Garnier has launched Moisture Match which are 5 different moisturisers suited for different skin types. I tested them all as they were on offer for £3.99 but they had none left just the samples. I smelt each one and the smell wasn’t good except for the textured gel moisturiser. The one I picked was the Wake me up 24 hour Revitialising hydration gel. After testing it, it reminded me of my Clinique surge moisturiser so I thought this could be a good alternative.
The Garnier moisture match can be bought from Boots for £5.99. Have you tried these two moisturisers? Which one is your favourite?
Superdrugs had an offer on for £3.99 but I think they may have gone back to full price now.
After using the Garnier Wake me up moisturiser for a couple of weeks I realised that I kept having to reapply the moisturiser and I felt it didn’t last 24 hours like it says. But having used it, it still feels nice to apply and it sinks in well and there’s not much fragrance. I would use this some days instead of using my Clinique moisturiser as that’s quite expensive but I wouldn’t completely swap products and use the Garnier Wake me up all the time.
