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

This product goes on smooth, smells great, absorbs quickly, and moisturizes well. I have combination skin and while my dry areas have been tamed by this product my oily T-zone became even more oily! This just doesn't work for me but maybe would be great with someone with just dry skin.

    I received a sample with a purchase I made from ULTA. I love it! It made my skin smooth and added a nice glow. Will most definitely be going to purchase a full size. It's amazing and works well under makeup which is a plus for me!!

          It's my current favorite to use daily. I have awkward dry skin in some areas and oily in others. It moisturizes without being greasy or heavy in those areas and still gives what it needs to the dry.

                  I really did like this product; I got it as a skincare sample in one of my previous shipments. I used this for a couple days, looking for a lighter weight moisturizer, however, this product caused my skin to have a reaction/breakout after a couple days of use. The only other thing I have had a skin reaction to is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen; so, fair warning, if that caused a reaction, this might also give you a reaction/breakout. It broke my heart, because I really do like this product as a whole.

                        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.
