Garnier Body: Intensive 7 Days ReviewMonday, 21 May 2012 15:31
A month or so ago I signed up receive a free sample of Garnier's new(ish) body lotion, 'Intensive 7 Days'. At first I was a little confused as to what the '7 days' part was all about; I actually thought it was a lotion designed to use in blocks of 7 days and that it was a kind of concentrated treatment. However, after a bit of reading and researching I found that the '7 days' actually refers to the fact that it claims to keep your skin moisturised for up to 7 days at a time. Overall, I have to say that I LOVE this product and have since been to buy a bottle.
The sample I received came with 7 small sachets of the shae butter scented lotion, which is for dry to extra dry skin. I used it every day for a week and the results I saw in my skin were drastic! I can actually show you how moisturised my legs were after using the samples as Garnier included a cool 'Skin Reader' with the sample pack. The reader works when you stick the black spots to the area of skin you are using the lotion for (in this case it was my legs) and the more white comes onto the dots, the drier your skin is. Here were my results, the top dot shows my skin's result before starting my week long sample of the lotion and the bottom dot shows it after:
As you can see, the results were quite drastic! My legs feel and look so much better too, they are so soft and they look healthy, as opposed to the unhealthy and unattractive dry purple tint they had before!
The lotion I actually bought was the mango scented one designed for dry skin. I love it just as much as the shae butter sample pack, if not more because I am a sucker for fruity scents! I will definitely be repurchasing this when it runs out. I bought mine on Offer from Superdrug a few weeks ago at £2.99 for 400ml, but it usually retails at around £4.99 and I must say I wouldn't hesitate to buy it at full price! It does come in smaller bottles too and there are a huge range of scents and formulas for different skin types. I definitely recommend this product!
