Anyone who has travelled on a long-haul flight will know how dry your skin can get. If I had to pick one beauty item to take travelling, it would be moisturiser. All that air-con and lack of sleep can really cause havoc with your skin, leaving it dry and scaly. Before I left for New Zealand, I was looking for an intensive moisturiser that I could slather on whilst flying, so I headed to Superdrug to see what I could find.
I came across Garnier Moisture Bomb and was intrigued with its claim to “recharge(s) the skin with hydration and helps protect it from external aggressions.” Well there is nothing more aggressive to the skin than a 40+ hour journey across the world that’s for sure! So in my hand luggage it went, along with my high hopes for this ‘wonder cream’. Read on to see what I thought of it…
What Garnier say: “More than a moisturiser, Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Moisturiser recharges the skin with hydration and leaves it feeling protected from external aggressions.
“For the first time, Garnier has integrated in a new generation, ultra-light texture: Two antioxidant superfruit extracts: Amla and Pomegranate, combined with daily UVA/UVB protection and a high concentration of Plant Serum Its fresh texture melts immediately on contact with the skin and hydrates it perfectly all day long. No greasy or sticky effect.”
What I say: If you’re thinking that ‘it sounds too good to be true’, then you would be thinking the same as I did. Hydrates skin all day long? No way. Well actually, yes way. This moisturiser kept my skin soft and supple during my journey, I did apply it every few hours but that was me being paranoid that my skin would get really dry. However, I had nothing to worry about.
Since the flight I have been using it every day and it has kept my skin silky soft. It feels really thick and luxurious and it leaves my skin feeling like velvet. It lives up to its claim of not leaving a greasy or sticky residue, as it sinks right in. it also contains SPF10 which is great for every day wear. I also love the packaging, the pump lets you disperse how much you need which minimises waste, and the bright blue colour of the bottle is ‘summery’ and fresh.
Overall, I LOVE IT. I am so happy I tried it as it has been the best ‘drug-store’ moisturiser I have used in a long, long time and it is such a great product for the price. I would definitely recommend it and I think i’ll try the Garnier Moisture Bomb Night Cream next!
