      One of my favorites!

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

      I never really used a face moisturizer until I got this for a free sample about a year ago. Ever since then I have been buying this product because I love it! My skin is more on the dry side and this stuff makes my skin look hydrated all day long. It really does brighten and smooth your skin! The older I get the more moisturizers I've tried and this is still one of my favorites. I would definitely recommend!

      I tried this this morning and OMG it made my skin softer on the spot! I have dry cheeks and jaw line like super scaly and after my morning exfoliation, applied a coat and loved how soft and non-greasy it made my face. I'm definitely will be using more of this product.

          Use every morning when getting ready. Has a light floral fragrance, which I thought might be an issue with sensitive skin but hasn't been so far. Great Sun protection and makes your skin super smooth and soft. Has noticeably reduced dark under eye circles too!

                    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.
