Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti-Ageing Cream

Hello Friends!

I never ever worried about my skin much in my 20’s, I did have my share of problems, a few eruptions and open pores, but that was it. I would apply multani mitti (Fuller’s earth) and a few other face packs, that was it, my skincare routine, but nearing 30 and seeing all the advertisements about anti-ageing creams and serums, the worry bug caught me and I decided to try an anti-ageing cream. So, I bought the Garnier wrinkle lift anti-ageing cream.

garnier wrinkle lift antiageing cream

About the Cream:

This cream comes in a super cute red glass jar with a white cap. It is priced at Rs. 299 for 40 ml. The jar is very sturdy and doesn’t break even after falling, I am saying this because once it had slipped out of my hands, but did not break.

What the Garnier Site Says About the Cream:

Is Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti-ageing Cream right for me?

Yes, if you need an everyday complete solution that targets the different signs of ageing: wrinkles, fine lines, loss of firmness, skin dryness.

How is it different?
It does more than a classic anti-wrinkle cream: Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti-ageing Cream has been designed to reduce wrinkles and put spring and vitality back into your skin, recovering lost firmness and elasticity.

Ingredient List:
There is no mention of any ingredient anywhere on the jar, but this is what I got from the Garnier website. Its formula contains a unique combination of pure natural active ingredients: Ginger, known for its revitalizing properties helps boost the natural process of skin’s regeneration and reinforces its inner strength. Active essence of cherries, combined with bilberry extract helps firm skin
Reduction of fine lines efficacy: 95%*
Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles: 93% *
Improvement in the firmness of skin: 93% *

After reading about ginger, I did a bit of researching myself to check if this was true and this is what I found. Ginger helps clear bruises, carbuncles, sores on the skin, arthritis, rheumatism, muscle aches and pains, relieve acne, lighten age spots, fight skin damaging free radicals, reduce cellulite, promote smoothness and evenness of skintone, decrease inflammation, increase radiance to skin, provide aromatherapy benefits and more. Ginger oil is used in many commercial and homemade skincare products: soaps, shampoos, balms, body scrubs, creams, lotions, bath oils, massage oils and more.

All this got me more excited and I couldn’t wait to use this cream.


My Take on Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti-Ageing Cream:

This cream is not very thick in consistency. It is quite runny in fact. I really can’t explain the fragrance because it doesn’t even smell like ginger. The first day I used this cream, it made my skin very oily. The second day I used a less amount, but still, it made my skin look and feel very oily. I thought that maybe it is not meant for oilies like me, so discontinued using this. Then, in winters, I thought of giving this a try and it suited me well, it did make my skin look dewy though, but I was fine with it as far as it didn’t break me out. I finished one jar of this already and I have bought a second one in offer for the coming winters.

Consistency of the cream.


The cream just vanishes in the skin leaving a dewy effect.


Final Verdict:

This is a nice cream, but for people with dry skin. They can use this all-year round. I can’t confirm that this works on spots, but fine lines, yes it does work. I did notice reduction in the fine lines, I mean this cream gives more like a plump effect to the skin, the overall skin looks healthy and maybe because of this, it gives the anti-ageing effect and the best part is it does not break me out. Oily skin people should use a lesser quantity. In all, this is a nice daily anti-ageing cream for dry to normal skin people. This jar lasts me a good 3 months, so very very reasonable for the price.

My Rating: 3.5/5 for oilies and 4.5/5 for dry to normal skin.

Will I Buy This Again????

I already have. This is one of the few products from Garnier which has worked.

Fabida September 5, 2011 at 11:57 am

Great review, Dimpi!! Sounds like an effective product, I’m considering getting it now. This isn’t a night cream, right?


dimpi September 5, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Fabida…..thankoo :thanks: ….i actually use this as a night cream….because daytime….it tends to make my face a bit oily…. :))


visakhi September 5, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Good review Dimpi,
I dont use anti ageing products as of nw (nt d age), but i really recommend olay over Garnier. I have seen many of my colleagues and relatives using it and it did a give a good result to them all.. O:) O:) :shy:


dimpi September 5, 2011 at 12:24 pm

:thanks: visakhi..olay is good….but only for dry skin people…..for oilies… is a big no no…. :nono: ….it is extremely heavy….it makes our skin look like a frying pan….. :nonono: ….and this one is lighter in texture…… works for oilies…. :thumbsup:


dimpi September 5, 2011 at 12:21 pm

krupa….if your aunt has dry skin..this one might not be very very effective….then she can try the ponds one…which is heavier….and for your mom…..if budget buy then the ponds serum….and if budget is not an issue then try the lancome genefique…i have heard the results are amazing…. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


Vid September 5, 2011 at 1:27 pm

me too heard ponds age miracle is good krupa, maybe you can suggest her this


dimpi September 5, 2011 at 1:46 pm

vid me talking about the ponds serum….which has to be use donly if one has too many wrinkles…..not the age miracle cream… 🙂


Vid September 7, 2011 at 12:58 am

oh ok dimpi :)) dint know


dimpi September 7, 2011 at 1:03 am

krupa….lancome is any time better than loreal…only thing is lancome is a bit pricier….thats it…but works like magic…. :thumbsup:


dimpi September 5, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Hey gals….i just went through this article and want to make a correction about the price….its 220 & not 299 :silly: ….One more reason to go for this…. :yahoo:


Shaili September 5, 2011 at 12:34 pm

this is like always stocked up in my home
my mum and dad are using it since as long as i can remember
mum loves it totally 🙂


dimpi September 5, 2011 at 1:15 pm

oh cool…..shaili….how is the long term effect????


Shaili September 5, 2011 at 6:59 pm

it works well on my mum Dimpi..though she is more into home remedies but she religiously applies this every night and i dont see any wrinkles on her skin..she is about to hit 50 🙂
and yeah i remember once during a low phase she developed wrinkles around her eyes and she claims this cream worked on those wrinkles(i was in hostel that time). Imagine the choosy nature of my mum that i have gifted her wise woman night cream from TBS but she is into this garnier cream only..even my dad 🙂


dimpi September 7, 2011 at 1:10 am

😀 😀 ….looks like this product has a better future than the other garnier ones….


monika September 5, 2011 at 1:23 pm

i am using ponds at present…..this one also sounds interesting. :specs:


dimpi September 5, 2011 at 1:39 pm

monika,,,,this is better than ponds….i have tried ponds….its very oily…this one is not that oily… of the few garnier products which has worked…. 😀


Vid September 5, 2011 at 1:29 pm

dimpi September 5, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Samantha September 5, 2011 at 8:50 pm

My mom just started using anti-aging products, and this is the first thing she bought. She loves it, and doesn’t want to switch even though I tell her to try other stuff as well. 😛
And yes, she has dry skin.


dimpi September 7, 2011 at 1:04 am

samantha its good that she loves this plus she has dry skin…so no need for her to switch to other brands…. :nono:


Neha S. September 5, 2011 at 8:51 pm

my mum used this cream briefly.. around 3 bottles… it did seem to bring a glow to her skin but nothing major…. and the moment she stopped using it that glow was gone… but its good one while it lasts 🙂


dimpi September 7, 2011 at 1:06 am

neha s. ….most of the creams & serums work only till you are using it…..and this cream is light….so may be it wnt work for deeper wrinkles…. 😐
