Beauty: Glow-Giving Moisturiser for Under £5

I’ve relied on the same bits of skincare for pretty much the last few years, but the only thing I stockpile (there’s currently two tubes in my wardrobe, plus open tubes at mine, my parent’s and W’s house!) is this moisturiser.

The Ultra-Moisturising tube is great for winter, though I can’t use it every night. I love the Hydrating version too – this is perfect for when my skin feels a bit thirsty, yet it doesn’t overwhelm it. It’s also amazing on sunburn…But my absolute favourite has to be the SPF version.

I wouldn’t use it on holiday or a full day out in the summer, but for days where I’m not worshipping the sun it’s plenty. Light and easily absorbed, it’s oil-freeness makes it an excellent base for makeup, and I find my foundation always seems to blend better when I’m wearing this. But the best part? The glow! No shimmer in sight, this tube is just radiant skin in a bottle. I’ve trialled a few high-end moisturisers and nothing has yet to give results like this. It might not be luxurious, it might not be the most spa-like, but the results speak for themselves. I think I’m on about my eleventh tube of this now!

Giving change from a fiver, this budget glow-giving moisturiser is a daily staple in my routine, and I adore it. Please don’t ever stop making it Garnier!

      It really is the best moisturiser I’ve tried! x

  • I think I’ll have to try this moisturiser when I finish the one I’m using. I’m using Avon True Radiance which is really good but I like to switch moisturisers.

      Switching skincare really upsets my skin, but it loves this! x

    Garnier is such a go-to brand, thanks for sharing.

    • ninegrandstudent

      I think they are so underrated, I love them! x

  • This sounds great especially in the summer when you dont want heavy make up on. I always use Clarin Daily Energizer products, they are a total life saver xx



    • ninegrandstudent

      It gives such a lovely finish to the skin, wouldn’t be without it! x

  • Rose Paddington

    It’s one of my favourite products! I’m actually running quite low on it which makes me really sad! xx


    • ninegrandstudent

      It’s amazing isn’t it! x

  • Oooh! I’ve been wanting to try these Moisture Match jobbers for a while now, I think this one has just made its way to the top of the list!
