Review of Garnier Skin Active Clearly Brighter Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

Review of Garnier Daily Moisturizer

Hello, beautiful people!

Hope you are enjoying whatever season you are on now.
I know some of you are enjoying the freezing snow, endless rain, or even balmy sun.
Here in Jakarta, Indonesia, we have a melange of sunshine and heavy pour.
Well, the beginning of the year is typically like this and we usually have more rain as the Chinese New Year is coming.

I have been enjoying the tropical weather of Jakarta.
Yet, my skin need some adjustment obviously after moving from colder place like New York City to forever-humid Jakarta.
That's why I need a good day-to-day sunscreen.

Now, I have been routinely using Estée Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Milky Emulsion (read the full review by clicking it :)) as well as Garnier Skin active Clearly Brighter Sunscreen.

Let's read my take on this on the review of Garnier Skin Active Clearly Brighter  Daily Moisturizer SPF 15.


This product is one of the collection from Skin Active series, particularly Clearly Brighter variant. There are 5 different products from this series and the one I have is the daily moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 15.

Clearly brighter
It comes in a plastic bottle with pump on top to help us adjust the liquid as needed.

The weight is 2.5 fl oz/75 ml. For me it's enough for approximately 3-4 months of daily use. It also has its expiry date printed clearly on the bottle.

The pump on top of it...

As I read it from the website,, it claims that it will brighten and smoothen our skin. " Clinically proven results.* In 1 week, reveals two key dimensions of brighter looking skin: radiant, more even skin tone and improved skin texture, even reduces wrinkles. *In a clinical test."


Again, the website says:

"Active ingredients Purpose 
Avobenzone 3% .................... Sunscreen
Octisalate 5% .................... Sunscreen
Octocrylene 5% ................... Sunscreen

Inactive Ingredients: water, glycerin, silica, dimethicone, PEG-100 stearate, glyceryl stearate, octyldodecanol, ammonium polyacryloyldimethyl taurate, ascorbyl glucoside, benzyl alcohol, benzyl salicylate, capryloyl salicylic acid, caprylyl glycol, citral, dicaprylyl carbonate, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, disodium EDTA, geraniol, limonene, linalool, nymphaea alba flower extract, palmitic acid, phenoxyethanol, phenylethyl resorcinol, sodium hyaluronate, sodium hydroxide, sodium palmitoyl proline, steareth-100, stearic acid, tocopherol, xanthan gum, fragrance."

the look of the moisturizer


I bought this at CVS New York City and the price is USD 15,-

I haven't really look for it here in Jakarta but I guess I saw it online.


Too bad I lost the box but this product certainly comes in a sturdy box in white and green nuance, signature of Garnier. The bottle itself is pearly white with green pump on top of it. The pump is good, so that it's easy to control the flow of the liquid from the bottle.

I have other product from the same series that I will review later. It's Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel - Cream fro dry skin. the packaging is pretty much similar to this daily moisturizer.

Wait for this review!


To use this product, pump the product (approximately 1 - 2 pumps are enough) and apply it liberally to your face and neck. Do it 15 minutes before being exposed to the sun. 
Easy peasy, right!


I like the fact that it feels light and not stick on my face. 

It doesn't have any particular smell and there is only a faint, lovely hint of flower but not too strong. So it's good!

I usually put it after the serum, with a short break in between. It absorb quickly to the skin and you can feel the moisturizer working, It keeps my skin fresh and moist. After 2 months of intensive use, I can see my skin tone is brighter and healthier. Unfortunately, I don't have the 'before' photo, but I can assure you that I feel the result of wearing it diligently. 

no filter..nothing but the daily moisturizer.. 

So, that what I have about Garnier Skin Active Clearly Brighter Daily Moisturizer  with SPF 15 .
So far, I have no complaints and happy to use it and repurchase it. It's not too expensive and it's 

What do you think?
Do you think you will try this as well?

  18. Sayangnya memang belum tersedia di Jakarta ya mba, padahal produk2 Garnier lumayan cocok di aku :)

  19. I've never seen this variant of Garnier in Indonesia mbak. It looks interesting though since I am currently looking for a good sunscreen. Tapi kalau ada yang jual di Indonesia kayanya harganya bakalan melonjak naik deh yaa. Hehehe

  20. Tadinya ini aku pikir produk Garnier baru buat di Indonesia eh taunya bukan di Indonesia, langsung kecewa padahal niat mau cobain. Hihi

  21. Garnier yang bisa di pakai sehari hari. Bentuk pump membuat tangan kita tidak kotor, tidak perlu colak colek

  22. Trims review-nya ttg produk ini mba.. jadi tahu dan ingin mengenalnya lebih jauh nih..

  23. Mmm.. garnier ini bagi kulit aku sangat soft banget.. ngeblend dikulit aku dan ngga oili.. tapi bagi aku spf nya kurang gedeee... entah aku lebih nyaman dengan mouisturizer dengan spf tinggi.. merasa nyaman terlindungi

  24. Asli penasaran Ama produk ini, sayang ya belum ada di Indonesia... Hiks...

  25. Kalau aku suka pake masker garnirnya, oiya yang ini belum coba kak, tp di Indo kemasannya sama gak? semoga cocok dengan kulitku

  29. Aku pakainya Garnier Pelembam yang Sakura. Kalau di lihat2, Garnier Skin Active ini belum ada di Indonesia kayanya. Mungkin nyesuaiin kondisi lingkungan tropis kali ya Mbak

  30. Eh perasaan belum pernah liat produk ini di Indonesia. Katanya Garnier yg dipasarkan di US lebih bagus dr yang dijual di Indonesia ya.

  31. Enak ya mam kalau moisturizernya enggak sticky gini. Jadi ga berasa gerah di wajah.

  39. Saya suka Garnier tapi yang bentuk sheet mask aja, Mama Bo. Kalau produk satu ini belum coba saya. Next lah ya.

  40. Aku juga ada beberapa produk skin care yang pakai Garnier. Salah satunya Micellar Waternya yang emang ampuh banget angkat sisa makeup hehe

  41. Aku suka nih kak makeup ataupun skin care yang kemasannya pump gitu. Menurutku lebih steril aja kak. Ga buka tutup kemasannya trus bisa dikontrol secukupnya saat mau dipakai

  42. produk skin care garnier banyak juga ya. eh, ternyata di USA ada juga produk garnier. keren...keren...
    aku sering pake maskernya lho.

  43. Wahhh jadi inget apa yang pernah dilakukan mama dirumah wuehehe, dan keinget aja namanya itu wuehehe

  44. Its been great co-hosting with you this week.

  45. Right now I am loving the Clinique 72-hour moisturizer. It's actually pretty good and just what I needed for the dry winter season. It's one of few products that I haven't gotten pimples from using.
