Garnier Bio skincare range consists of the following products:
Purifying Gel Wash – This gel wash is made of a lemongrass which is grown in Sri Lanka. It also Organic Lemongrass Essential Oil as well as the Organic Cornflower Oil as a main ingredients. This is great face wash for everyday use if you have normal to combination skin. Does not irritate skin, mattifies it and prevents skin from drying out. I usually apply this in the morning and/or evening to a damp face, scrub it nicely and then rinse it off. Retails for £4.10.
Perfecting Thyme Toner – This toner is made of a thyme which is grown in France. Its main ingredients are organic thyme essential oil and salicylic acid.

This toner will best suit the combination to oily skin types. It has water consistency and prepares skin for further skin products. Retails for £4.10.

Nourishing Moisturizer – This balancing moisturizer is made of argan which has a lot of vitamin E, and linoleic acids, all of which work to lightly moisturize your skin, soften dry patches, and even reduce acne. This cream nourishes the skin deeply. I noticed that skin absorbs it very quickly and feels very comfortable. I usually apply this cream to clean skin and rubbing it in using gentle, circular movements, every morning and/or evening. Retails for £4.60.

We all know that our skin is a reflection of our inner vitality. For it to be the best it can be, it needs natural nutrients and ingredients to stimulate cellular activity and to protect against external aggressors. Garnier always gives preference to active natural ingredients which perform for the skin’s maximum benefit.
Garnier Bio Organic Skincare line has been certified as Organic by the French organization Ecocert. The launch follows the news that the brand has entered a three-year partnership with the ecological NGO Fondation GoodPlanet to work with French farmers on developing agroforestry in tandem with the French Agroforestry Association. The practice focuses on farming approaches that have less of an impact on the environment and generate higher profits for agricultural workers, and the partnership will support 7 pilot-farms with a knock-on effect, in addition to training 50 farmers, planting 2,800 trees on 35 hectares of land and raising awareness amongst the general public.
This collection was only available to France market, but thanks to Notino, we can now get hands on it in UK too. This range is affordable, is great for our skin so I am really happy about this launch.
