Garnier SkinActive Party Box

I was lucky enough to be picked for the Garnier SkinActive Party from Crowdtap and they sent me a big box of products to share with the party goers. 

Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Daily Moisturizer
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water- makeup remover
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water- Removes waterproof makeup
cotton pads for removing makeup

Overall I was happy with the Moisturizer because it left my face feeling soft and moisturized. It's not overly oily and it lasted for a long time. But it is a little thick and made my skin feel sticky after a while. I like that this has a spf 15 in it because it's easier to find and use a daily moisturizer with an spf already in it than it is to apply 2 different products. Overall it's a nice moisturizer but I've tried others that were better so I probably won't be purchasing this after the bottle is gone.

I give this 3 out of 5 stars

The Micellar Cleansing Water (pink Bottle) was my favorite of the two cleansing waters. It isn't overly oily and smells good. It does take a bit more to remove makeup than if I had used a wipe or Cold Cream. I can usually get my makeup off in just a few wipes if I use Cold Cream but this took several swipes and left my eyes stinging a little bit. 

I give this 4 out of 5 stars

My least favorite Micellar Cleansing Water by far was the one in the blue bottle. It's oily and took a lot of effort to get my waterproof mascara off. It stung my eyes and left my face feeling so oily that I had to use a cleanser to wash my face afterwards. So I cannot recommend the Micellar Cleansing Water (blue Bottle) because it just didn't work well for me. 

I give this 3 out of 5 stars

Disclosure: I was give free products in exchange for honest reviews and hosting a party to share the products.
