Garnier Essential Care Daily Moisturising Cream


Hope you had a lovely weekend. I had an okay time. Didn’t do much this weekend. I have moved to a new house and I am still in the process of getting adjusted to it, so busy with setting up the house, painting and other household chores. Today’s review is about a daily moisturizing cream from Garnier’s Essential Care Range.

Garnier Essential Care Daily Moisturising Cream

Product Description:

Garnier Daily moisturising cream is right for you, if you have a normal to dry skin type and are looking for an all day moisturising experience to keep your skin supple and young looking.


Garnier Daily moisturising cream is enriched with almond oil to moisturise and nourish your skin. Its fine, light texture is easily absorbed and it can be used throughout the day. Its formula blends a moisturising cream with selected ingredients: Almond oil rich in essential fatty acids to give softness and nourishment to your skin. Vegetal glycerol to retain the skin’s moisture and protect it against drying. Vitamin E to protect your skin from free radicals, activated by the sun’s rays.


Garnier uses, wherever possible, active natural ingredients which have been carefully extracted to preserve their quality and purity. Products have been dermatologically tested to ensure respect to your skin.

Directions For Use:

Apply daily in the morning after cleansing skin with Garnier Gentle Cleansing Milk. Gently massage into the skin using light circular movements, moving from the centre of your face outwards, and from the base of your neck to the top. It is an excellent base for make-up.

My Take on Garnier Essential Care Daily Moisturising Cream:

I started using this cream but had to stop using it after a while as I found it quite heavy! Yeah, surprisingly, I found this cream heavy and too oily. Particularly in summers, it is a very bad choice. After using it once or twice, I gave it to a friend and she too hated it.  The cream blends well with the skin and gets absorbed easily. It leaves a shiny layer on the skin and it definitely feels very heavy on the skin. After applying it on the face, you feel as if you have loaded covers of some cream on to your face.

It is indeed very moisturizing. Probably you can conveniently sit in the AC with the cream on your face and not feel the need to reapply. It keeps you moisturized throughout the day with just one-time application.  But for day time use and that too in summers, it is not a great choice. Women with extra dry skin may like it though.

Pros of Garnier Essential Care Daily Moisturising Cream:

  • Very moisturizing.
  • Gets absorbed easily.

Cons of Garnier Essential Care Daily Moisturising Cream:

  • Feels heavy on the face.
  • Not suitable for summers.
  • Also not suitable in day time for normal skin people.

Will I Recommend Garnier Essential Care Daily Moisturising Cream?

I may recommend it to people who need a highly moisturizing cream, but I do not recommend it to women with oily or even normal/combination skin.

  1. Surabhi ….good review and pics….I have never really liked Garnier products, nothing worked for me actually from this brand…

    1. same here Jomo.. I tried their fructis shampoo and had major hairfall. Tried their light cream and it made my face worse. I havent bought anything from this brand since last 5-6 yrs.. except this cream.

  2. I used its daily moisturising lotion and also the coccoon moisturiser in winters. suited me then but i too feel its heavy for summers.

  3. Blah. Garnier always disappoints me. Did they not mention the ingredients, btw?
    Thanks for this review though! 🙂
