I’ve just discovered a new drugstore brand and I’m in love! Let me be clear,  Garnier is not new but I’m extremely late to the game (don’t judge). I can’t believe I’ve never tried any Garnier products before. Clearly I’ve been living under a rather large rock. Agree?
garnierI’ve been experimenting with a huge range of products: hair care, sunscreen and skincare.

Hair

garnier fructis style, beach wavesI just cut off all my hair (if you’re on instagram you can check it out HERE), so I can’t really sport long beach waves. That said, I have been using the flat iron with the Flat Iron Perfection and the Beach Chic above to create some awesome short waves (see pic HERE). I like to use coconut oil on my ends to smooth out any dry or uneven pieces too. Bonus – it smells amazing!garnierSome other hair products from Garnier I’ve been loving are the Nutrisse Ultra Color which can be used to help achieve a sunkissed glow in 1 easy step.

Did you ever use lemon juice in your hair in the summer? I know my sisters and I did this a lot in the 90s. It first started with squeezing a fresh lemon onto our hair, but then we smartened up and bought lemon juice in a bottle 😉 This product is lemon juice for adults!

If you have light brown or blonde hair, these work so easily. Simply use the gel and spray on damp hair and wait 2-3 days to see results – EASY!

Sun

garnier, ombrelle sportI’ve been spending quite a bit of time outside this summer and I’m obsessed with the new Ombrelle Sport sunscreen.  Even though it’s a cream, it’s not sticky or thick (my pet peeves). It’s easy to apply and stays where you put it! As a runner, it’s perfect for me because it doesn’t sweat off and sting my eyes (which many sunscreens do!).

Skin

Garnier-Skin-Active-Balancing-Skin-ExfoliatorI’m loving this Balancing Gel Exfoliator at the moment. It’s actually gentle enough to be used daily which is great because I need to give myself a good daily cleanse at the moment to help remove the sunscreen, sweat and makeup.Garnier-Skin-Active-Sheet-MaskI’ve also been using this Clearly Brighter sheet mask once a week for the last month and it’s extremely hydrating. Infused with Vitamin C I feel like it brightens my tired skin so it doesn’t look so hollow when I wake up in the morning. Many sheet masks are quite pricey so if you’ve been dying to try one out – start here.Garnier-BB-Cream-Blur-&-moisture-creamThe BB Cream + Blur has a really nice smooth and light formula. If you’re looking for full coverage, this isn’t the product for you. If you want to feel fresh and even out your skin tone, you’ll absolutely love this.

While I have been wearing full out sunscreen most days for the last few months, sometimes if I’m heading to a meeting or running errands than I use a daily moisturizer with SPF instead. Moisture Rescue is light to medium in consistency but absorbs really easily. After cleansing in the morning, I’ve been applying this prior to the BB Cream + Blur and then applying my concealer in areas where I want to achieve more coverage.
