Review: Garnier Skins Natural Aqua Defense Non Stop Intense Moisturizing Essence (50ml)

Good morning! or Guten Morgen ~ as they say it in Germany. I'm very sorry (deep bow) for not updating with a post sooner as I have been in Allensbach, Germany for the past few days. It's a beautiful autumn and the weather and temperature is just nice. Now that it's a Saturday, I can rest and relax a bit. Well, today's review is on Garnier Skins Natural Aqua Defence Essence (50ml). Although it is not a new product on the shelves, it's still worth a post. =)

[ Directions/ How I Use It ]
From the labels:
You may use it as an essence and apply after applying toner on your face.

For me:
I like to apply this at night as a sleeping mask. It is good!

[ What It Does ]
As you can see, the labels are in Malay. I will try my best to translate from Malay Language to English. o(^-^)o

Everyday our skin is exposed to heat, air pollution and air-conditioning that can leave our skin dry and dull. The essence not only helps hydrate your skin for a longer time but also protects skin from elements that are drying. Its cooling gel texture is will be absorbed instantly, and increases moisture content for the whole day, giving you soft smooth skin. 

[ Ingredients ]
This essence is enriched with pure fruits extracts and Vitamin E antioxidants.

Garnier uses natural active ingredients as much as possible, which are extracted carefully to retain its natural goodness. The products are also tested by dermatologist and is especially formulated for Asian skin.

[ Review ]
For those that do not know which gel-type essences to purchase, you can try this one. Gel essences can help to lock moisture in our skin. If I use it as a day moisturizer, I'd apply this after the Hada Labo Hyaluronic Acid Toner , and under a sunscreen. It worked very well to lock in moisture for the whole day without any stickiness. (^^) Or, you may try it as a sleeping mask. Just slather a thick layer on clean face, and it will be absorbed slowly. Skin feels and looks soft and bouncy on the next morning!

First of all, it smells soooo refreshing, like green apples.  When applied on skin, there is a slight heating and tightening sensation for a few seconds.

[ Would I Buy It Again? ]
Rating: 7/10
I use this more as a moisturizer lock. Although it absorbs well, but not as quickly as liquid essence. Hence, if you are rushing for work in the morning for school/work, it will take some time to massage the gel for full absorption. Nevertheless, I loveee it as a sleeping mask. Ah, one more thing…the glass container is h-e-a-v-y, and not very travel-friendly. Other than that, this is a good product, worth repurchasing. (^^)b This is my 2nd jar. =p

Anyway, since I have some time, maybe I’ll go to the local German stores this weekend and check what they have here, eh? Have a great Saturday!!
