Garnier Body Intensive 7 days Nourishing Lotion with L-Bifidus...possibly the longest name for a moisturiser EVER!

Don't you just hate it when you put your moisturiser on, have to wait an age to get dressed and still spend the rest of the day feeling horrible and sticky? Well I do, so when I saw the advert for this new "fast-absorbing" moisturiser that claims you can put you clothes on instantly, obviously I wanted to give it a try. I went for the large bottle at £4.99 in Tesco, but there is a smaller bottle available for £2.99. It comes in 5 different varieties which are aimed at different types of skin. Mango for Dry Skin, Shea Butter for Dry to Extra Dry Skin, Honey for Sensitive Skin, Aloe Vera for Normal Skin and Cocoa Butter for Dry, Rough Skin. I went for the cocoa butter, but I have to say this is purely because this is the smell I like the most rather than because it was aimed at a particular skin type. I use moisturiser mainly to maintain my self-tan and have found that the ones aimed at this can often be over priced so tend to stick to the more reasonably priced moisturisers.

I have to say, as it I sit here in my pyjamas an hour after putting it on, I have mixed reviews. I still have that 'sticky' feeling to my skin which means I cannot put my clothes on straight away as their advert claims. The smell is lovely, but it's not the wonder product it claims to be. It is thinner than some moisturisers which helps a little but overall I am not too pleased so far! In terms of the "7 day" promise, I will keep you updated. The results section on the back of the bottle says "After just 7 days of use, skin's quality is noticeably improved - dryness -53%, roughness -46% and suppleness +41%" and it also claims that after 7 days of not using it, your skin will still feel moisturised. I will blog again in a weeks time and let you know my thoughts then!
