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

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?
