Garnier Skin Active Aloe Jelly

Ahh, just how how quickly the warm weather has swept into a chilly breeze, grey skies and the need to put the central heating on. My house feels really cold and I’m finding that my only solace is coming from fluffy blankets and socks. My skin is also feeling the effects. First of all, it gets blasted with air con at work, and now when I’m at home, it’s being hit with the dry and warm rooms in my house. I have needed instant hydration and I have found a product that is helping my skin look and feel instantly hydrated. The Garnier 3 in 1 Aloe Water Jelly is a multi use product, which has been  injecting life back into my face. 

Thirsty skin, whether it be dry, dehydrated or just suffering the after effects of being in the air conditioning and central heating will all be prime examples for the Garnier Aloe Jelly. A translucent jelly, packed full of hyaluronic acid and organic aloe vera which we know has healing and soothing properties. 

As a day care product, the jelly is light enough to be used under foundation and as a primer. A little is needed otherwise it does tend to feel quite tacky on the skin, however that’s not a bad thing if you are using foundation over the top. With the lack of makeup wearing I have been doing lately, I have been leaving my skin to drink up the jelly throughout the day and applying it more than once. 

As a night care product, it works in exactly the same way however I do feel like I need something more for my skin to cope throughout the night. It does work with serums and facial oils for an extra boost but I couldn’t use it on it’s own. 

My favourite way to use the Garnier Jelly has to be as a mask. A thick layer of jelly is applied to my face, which I leave for around 10-15 minutes. I pat off any excess with a towel or muslin cloth before leaving the residue to soak into my skin. Using this method once or twice a week, I have seen a difference in the plumpness of my skin and how much fuller my finer lines seem. 

I’m pretty impressed overall with the Garnier Jelly and I do keep seeing it go on 50% off offers in Superdrug and Boots. It’s well worth picking up should you need to address your thirsty skin!
