    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15:

    I have been using this product as my daily morning moisturizer. It really helps my skin to not feel dry and also gives me a little bit of a glow. I love it because I don't like to wear makeup every day. With this moisturizer and a little bit of mascara, I am good to go!

    Really nice

    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15:

    I got a large sample size of this for free, and I actually really like it and plan on purchasing the full size. This is scented but it hasn't broken me out so I am cool with it. It just feels really nice and absorbs very quickly into the skin without a greasy film.

      I purchased this product after trying the sample. I really enjoyed that my face felt moisturized yet did not look or feel greasy. I can't speak to UV protection but since I begin using, I've had more even skin tone.

      I am 68 years old and never had any compliments on my skin (as a teenager, I had acne). I have been using this Garnier product for several months and have been told that my skin is "luminous". Great product, highly recommend.

      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15:

      I generally apply it every morning and I feel like it does help to brighten my face. I really love the product but my only concern is the relatively low SPF. It is wonderful that it does provide at least a bit of protection. However, SPF 15 is still too low to really protect oneself from UV rays. So generally, if I know I'm going to go outside, I'll put on another coat of a higher SPF sunscreen.

        It applied pretty well but this smells VERY strongly of perfume. I'm not normally one to stop using a product because of smell but this is too much. The smell lingers as if you dumped perfume on your face. Will be exchanging for something else.

              A:

              For best results fading dark spots and uneven skintone using products both AM and PM and a sunscreen are needed. For AM we recommend applying the Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector to clean skin. Follow after 15 minutes with either makeup that has an SPF or the Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15. For PM use the same Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Overnight Leave On Peel.
              The Dark Spot Corrector and Dark Spot Peel are essential to fading the discoloration and dark spots, however an sunscreen must also be used daily to prevent new dark discolorations from forming.

              A:

              The Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 is a great product to use in the AM to help reduce the appearance of dark spots like age spots. For a more intensive dark spot treatment use the Clearly Brighter Overnight Leave-On Peel in the PM as well. And be sure to use a sunscreen daily to keep new dark spots from forming.

              A:

              This product was made for use on the face. While it was not tested for use on the body, we see no reason why the Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 cannot be used on skin you would normally apply other lotions.

            Can I use this under makeup?
            If so, could I still use primer and liquid foundation?

              A:

              This fast absorbing, non-greasy formula turns dull, rough skin into smooth, polished-looking skin with a more radiant, even tone. The Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 leaves skin ready for any cosmetics you normally wear. However, you might find you don't need to use a primer along with this moisturizer.
