So, you want to be at one with nature, but you aren’t quite ready to live in a forest or totally pass up on creature comforts. We’re on the same page, especially when it comes to our beloved skin care staples. You couldn’t pry our cleansers and moisturizers out of our hands if you tried. The good news is that there’s a way to be a little closer to nature without abandoning your beauty routine altogether: with Garnier’s naturally-derived skin care products! We think we’re hearing a chorus of “tell me more, tell me more,” so we won’t hold out. Keep reading for all the details of the nine new products in the range, formulated without parabens, dyes, and silicones.
What Does Naturally Derived Actually Mean?
Before we dive into all the products you’ll be dying to get your hands on, let’s clear up a thing or two about what Garnier means when they say “naturally-derived.” Garnier considers an ingredient to be naturally-derived if it is unchanged from its natural state or if it has undergone processing yet retains greater than 50% of its molecular structure from its original plant or mineral source. The formulas in this range consist of 96% naturally-derived ingredients, with the remaining 4% dedicated to ingredients that can help ensure the formula's sensoriality and preservation.
Garnier SkinActive Soothing Rose Water Products
Your brain isn’t the only thing that’s stressed out after a long week. Skin deals with stress too. Of course, that doesn’t mean your face needs a week away to unwind, a few soothing products should do the trick. That’s when you’ll want to look to the line that is also formulated with rose water.
Garnier SkinActive Soothing Rose Water Facial Mist (99% Naturally Derived): There’s no better way to refresh and relax than with a quick misting, and it certainly doesn’t hurt when each spritz is accompanied by the sweet scent of rose. This face mist lightly hydrates and leaves skin feeling soothed and refreshed. Mist 12-15 inches from the face whenever you’re in need of a boost of refreshment.
Garnier SkinActive Soothing Rose Water Cleansing Milk (98% Naturally Derived): Cleansing doesn’t tend to be the most soothing part of anyone’s skin care regimen, but that doesn’t have to be the case. This cleansing milk perfectly removes makeup and impurities without stripping skin of its natural moisture barrier. Few thoughts could soothe us more! Apply the milk to dry skin and gently massage with fingertips, before rinsing off for a fresh-feeling complexion.
Garnier SkinActive Soothing Rose Water 3-in-1 Moisturizer (96% Naturally Derived): What’s better than a product that serves double duty? One that serves triple, of course. This fast-absorbing, lightweight moisturizer intensely restores skin’s softness and suppleness, and can be used in three different ways. Apply it in the morning as a day moisturizer, at night as an evening moisturizer, or apply a thick layer twice a week at night as a face mask.
Garnier SkinActive Deep Pore Green Tea Products
Rumor has it green tea can be a welcome addition to your healthy lifestyle, but you shouldn’t relegate it to just the kitchen. While you can keep the actual sachets of tea in your pantry—we don’t need those—skin care products formulated with green tea deserve a spot of honor on your bathroom counter.
Garnier SkinActive Deep Pore Green Tea Facial Cleanser (99% Naturally Derived): Sensitive skin types don’t always find cleansing to be the easiest feat, but this cleanser nixes that issue. Formulated for all skin types, including sensitive, the gel cleanser purifies while removing dirt, oil, and daily build up. Any oily-skinned sufferers will love the after effects, as skin is left mattified with pores that appear visibly reduced. Yes, please!
Garnier SkinActive Deep Pore Green Tea Exfoliating Scrub (99% Naturally Derived): Visibly Large pores are a common complexion concern, but not enough people know to turn to a face scrub for assistance. Gently exfoliating your face is key to decongesting your skin and reducing the appearance of pores.
Garnier SkinActive Deep Pore Green Tea 3-in-1 Moisturizer (97% Naturally Derived): If you’re concerned about looking oily, but still in need of a moisturizer (hint, hint, everyone needs to moisturize), look no further. This non-greasy moisturizer manages to hydrate while minimizing shine and balancing the skin. Use it as a day moisturizer, night moisturizer, or 10-minute mask for all your hydrating needs.
Garnier SkinActive Refreshing Aloe Juice Products
You (and everyone else) may associate aloe vera with post-sun skin care, but there’s no reason you need to be sunburnt to treat yourself to products formulated with aloe juice. Reality check: There’s never a bad time to hydrate and refresh your skin. That’s why you’ll catch us using this trio all year round, even once we’ve decided to hibernate for the duration of winter.
Garnier SkinActive Refreshing Aloe Juice Facial Cleanser (99% Naturally Derived): It’s hard to achieve that much-desired squeaky clean feeling with cleansers that leave behind a residue, but that’s no worry here. This gel cleanser removes excess sebum and impurities for clean skin that feels fresh, and rinses clean with no pore-clogging residue.
Garnier SkinActive Refreshing Aloe Juice Cream Cleanser (96% Naturally Derived): Cleansers often get a bad rap for drying out skin, leaving it feeling tight and uncomfortable, but they aren’t all the same. This cleansing cream removes makeup and impurities when applied to dry skin, without stripping the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
Garnier SkinActive Refreshing Aloe Juice 3-in-1 Moisturizer (97% Naturally Derived): Make the most out of this moisturizer by utilizing it not just once a day, but in the morning to refresh and hydrate, at night to intensely comfort your skin, and as a face mask for skin that is deeply moisturized.
