I was recently sent the new Garnier Ultimate Blends Body products and I’ve been testing them out in place of my usual products. I got the honey treasures range which is for very dry skin (I’ll be honest now and say I don’t have very dry skin but I do use their hair care range and this is my favourite scent). Both products state they are non-greasy and non-sticky and that you can get dressed immediately after applying them. Neither product should be applied to the face, as I do have sensitive skin I stuck to this advice.
Firstly the Restoring Body Butter which is a 200ml size tub, this is the same size as the last body butters from The Body Shop, I’ve been using this on a night straight after a bath or a shower. The butter smells amazing! It is really thick and creamy and did absorb really quickly. After around a minute I’m able to put my PJs on. The scent lasts for several hours and it has left my skin really soft and moisturised, even until the next morning when I’m getting dressed again.
Next is the Restoring Lotion, this is a 250ml pump dispenser bottle. This also smells amazing and just like the hair care range. This moisturiser is much thinner than the body butter but still absorbs into the skin quickly, unfortunately it isn’t as quick as the body butter so skin does feel a bit greasy for 5 minutes or so. I’ve put this bottle next to my kitchen sink and I’m using it after I’ve washed the pots up or washed my hands to moisturise my hands. Again it’s left my skin feeling really soft and moisturised.
If you’re looking for a new body moisturiser I’d definitely recommend these, especially the body butter. I think once I’ve used these up I’ll try another range to see if they are as good and smell as nice.
