Take Care of Your Skin with Garnier SkinActive® Clearly Brighter™ {+Giveaway!}






Happy Monday! I really hate to say this but my skin has definitely suffered after being pregnant for nearly two years in a row. With both pregnancies I failed to properly take care of it (out of pure laziness) and I was unable to use some products in my cabinet that I was used to using due to the ingredients. Now, I'm left with an uneven skin tone and some pesky melasma spots that I knew had to be my focus once I had Grayson. I wanted to make it a priority to myself to get my skin in tip-top condition again.

For the past month I've been using two products to help brighten my skin and make it look healthier. I didn't have success with the first one (Neutrogena's Visibly Even Moisturizer), but I did want to share the one I'm still using and finding the best results with, which is Garnier SkinActive® Clearly Brighter™ Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15.

Garnier SkinActive® is a brand that I've used for years and I've loved many of their products so I was excited to try this. I've been using this moisturizer every morning and within a week I noticed a difference in my skin. It claims to even out tone and texture for brighter, smoother skin and it did just that. My skin has felt so much more hydrayed. healthier, and it's oil-free formula so I don't have to worry about breaking out. My melasma and dark spots are fading away so I know that by continuing to use this product these trouble areas will look even better. Another reason why I love this moisturizer is because it has antioxidant Vitamin C in it, which is so beneficial for your skin.

For a mom that has very little time to take care of herself, using this product has been simple enough to give me results I want without breaking the bank. Highly, highly recommend you give it a try if you've been neglecting your skin like me!

You can find this moisturizer at Target, Walmart, Amazon, CVS, Rite Aid, etc! Head on over to Garnier SkinActive®'s website, FacebookTwitterPinterestInstagramYouTube, and Google+ to learn more about their products.

For a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card, tell me: what is one step in your beauty regimen that you never skip? Your comment will enter you to win!

  1. I skip parts of my skin regimen, all the time: I may not use sunscreen daily, may not moisturize, I am not consistent.
