Todays review is about Garnier Sun Control Daily Moisturiser.
What Garnier Claims:
Its special formula blends a moisturizer with selected ingredients:
Formula with Mexoryl SX , a revolutionary patented molecule, to give protection from sun’s UV rays.
Vitamin E to help protect against free radicals and help delay the signs of ageing.
Glycerol and extracts of coriander to retain the skin’s moisture and prevent it from drying while nourishing.
Key Ingredients – Mexoryl SX,Vitamin E, Glycerol and extracts of coriander.
My skin type – combination.
Price – Rs. 130
Quantity – 50 ml
Packaging: comes in a upside down white bottle with orange screw cap. the opening is a nozzle.
What Mexoryl SX does:
Mexoryl SX ia a water soluble sunscreen which filters UVA rays.
Consistency – its a light orange runny lotion.
I got this one to use as a body sunscreen.
but had to try on my face as well for a complete review.
Upon application, my face became very greasyand it took some time to get absorbed into the skin.
Even after being absorbed my skin felt quite greasy.
the lotion is runny in consistency and the fragrance is quite ok.
this one will not bother sensitive noses.
I have dry skin on by body.
after application on my arms, it didnt feel greasy at all and got absorbed within minutes.
Now cuming to the sun protection factor, Garnier Sun Control Daily Moisturiser does not have any SPF mentioned.
However the newer versions of this moisturiser claims to have SPF 15.
Normally i avoid using any sunscreen without SPF as i don’t trust them.
This one i used just to test the effectiveness.
I can say I safely stayed in the sun for about 15 mins in the sun with this moisturiser on.
And after that my skin started tanning.
So, to sum up I would say this would be an ideal sunscreen to be worn indoors or if you going to be in the sun for a short duration and definately for those with dry skin, as its an excellent moisturiser.
Also since this moisturiser contains water soluble sunscreen, it wont work, if you sweat a lot or while swimming.
Suitable for dry skin
Provides short term sun protection.
Moisturiser + Suncreen 2-in-1
Pea sized quantity is enough for one application on face, so this bottle is goin to last for a long time.
makes skin greasy apon application.
not suitable for oily & combination skin
No spf mentioned – not for reliable & long sun protection
Takes time to get absorbed
No complete ingredients list mentioned
Will I Purchase it again – Definately not, I’ll try other suncreens. Also as of now I’m very happy with my Garnier BB Cream.
Would I Recommend – Yes to dry skinned people and also to those who dont stay in the sun for long.
Beauty Gyaan (BG) Rating – 1.5 out of 5.
