I was recently travelling very light and I picked up 3-in-1 product to make sure my skincare also travels light! I picked up all the 3 variants available in the 3-in-1 range from Garnier to cater different needs. But, the first one I tried was the Garnier 3-in-1 Soothing Rose Botanical Balm. Read on to know more.
Price and Quantity:

Made with Rose Water, this 3-in-1 face moisturizer is three products in one: a day moisturizer that hydrates, a night moisturizer that nourishes, and a face mask to soothe. This fast-absorbing, non-greasy cream intensely restores skin’s softness and suppleness. Skin appears deeply hydrated with fine, dry lines reduced. Suitable for sensitive skin.

My Experience with Garnier 3 in 1 Soothing Rose Botanical Balm:
The product comes in a white plastic tub with a tamper seal between the cap and the tub. There are pink highlights on the tub denoting the color off the rose. The wide mouth closes well with a screw cap and this ensures it to be a perfect travelling companion if you do not mind carrying a big tube. On the other hand instead of taking 3 products, I would prefer to carry this one! The wide mouth makes it a little unhygienic, but since I use it right after my bath, my hands are pretty clean. Sometimes I use the ice cream plastic spoons to scoop out the product! The quality of the package is good but, I guess it is not very sturdy enough. When I dropped the tub by accident which happens often, it clearly cracked the cap! I am not so happy with this!
There is no extra seal once you open the lid. The balm is white in color and is extremely creamy, but it is a little thick and fluffy. It smells pleasant. There is a little hint of rose fragrance, but it is nothing like The Body Shop British Rose range or Dr organic Rose Otto products. I picked this one up as I am sucker for the fragrance of rose oil but it disappoints me!
The product is made from 96% natural ingredients and is free from Mineral oil, parabens, silicones or dyes. This is what attracted me to the range. The cream when applied doesn’t sink into the skin but doesn’t leave any greasy residue. It does sit on the skin and you can feel it on the skin. It feels a little bit sticky. The cream is a little thick for summers but as a moisturizing mask it does wonder to the skin. This makes the product an awesome one for dry skin who need the moisture surge no matter the season! The product intensively hydrates the skin and nourishes it making it very soft and smooth. It also adds a suppleness to the skin. The best option is to use it as a mask in the night and it also works out as a night cream and you can totally skin the removal part. The next morning the skin feels plumped up and is filled with moisture.
I absolutely regret not buying this earlier for winters. As a day cream, it does a decent job. However, due to the summer heat, it kind of makes my skin oilier faster due to its rich texture. This could be a perfect winter cream but for summers, this can be skipped. The product also helps in reducing fine lines but I haven’t noticed any big difference. Overall, it is a good buy if you have dry skin that is moisture thirsty but for other skin types, this could be more of a go to moisture mask and not a must buy! So summing up:
