I use this every day on my oily/combination skin. It's moisturizing without feeling too oily or greasy. It brightens the complexion as well. When I wear this to work, with no makeup, my coworkers tell me I'm glowing. I definitely recommend it.

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

    let me tell you my story with this real quick. I first tried this in a tiny sample from buying one of their other products and I immedietly knew I liked it. I have insanely dry skin like so dry my nose was always bumpy and flaking and my chin was always bumpy and i could never figure out how to fix it. But before trying this product i tried some other mosturizers such a CeraVe and Aveeno and they did nothing for me. the texture of those was way too thick and not moisturizing at all to be honest and those are more expensive then this one. This one feels so wet and it really makes your skin feel like you been drinking your recommended 8 cups of water a day for your whole life. I swear I started off with super dry skin and it completely healed my dryness in about 2 days!! this will forever be my favorite moisturizer and i can't rave about it enough

    I've been using this for two years and absolutely love it. It makes my skin glow and it goes on very smooth. I have combination skin and it's not too drying or oily it's just right. But more recently it's been difficult to find in nearby stores.

      Will Never Stop Buying

      By Hailey

      from Michigan

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

      I received this as a sample about six months ago and as soon as I ran out, I went and bought a bottle. I have extremely dry, flaky, dull, and uneven skin. This product (along with Mario Badescu toners) has made my skin bright, moisturized, and even. I would recommend this to anyone regardless of their skin type.

          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.

            • Brand Expert

              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.
