Not Great face oil
I tried this face oil together with the moisturiser day cream for a week but again the fragrance a bit strong for me and very oily after I put it on, I have an oily T-zone, it gave me a very oily face throughout the day. I don’t think it is good enough but the good thing that it is vegan product!
I tried this product firstly during the day which left my skin a bit shiny, but after a shower in the evening it was a great way to add moisture to my skin before bed. Just a few drops go a long way, it’s a nice alternative to cream!
My skin is a bit funny with oils. It's either a great product for my skin or it's the complete opposite. Unfortunately this did nothing for my skin, it left it looking greasy as it was not easily absorbed and quite heavy.
Not sure about the effect
Tried a variety of face oils. Love the fragrance and it is definitely on my top 5 in terms of the fragrance but couldn’t experience dramatic change.
I love a good facial oil as part of my skincare routine, so I was excited to give the Garnier Organics Lavandin Smooth & Glow Facial Oil a whirl.
The bottle has a dropper applicator which make its easy to just drop the small amount of product that you. A little goes a long way so I found a few drops of the oil was enough for my face and neck.
It took a little bit for the oil to absorb each morning, but it really keeps my face hydrated and glowy all day long.
I enjoyed using this most at night before bed as I found the slight lavender scent very relaxing.
The oil also gets big ticks for being organic and vegan.
For dry damaged skin
Garniers facial oil, is. Easily to apply with a dropper bottle. A little goes a long way with this oil, it's fantastic for after a deep exfoliation or if your skin is in need of rehydration. But it wasn't for me, the oil didn't suit my combination skin type it left my skin feeling greasy and heavy. However I did enjoy using it on my hands, which thanks to constant washing are very damaged. The oil left them feeling soft.
Not for me
This facial oil didn't seem to really absorb into my skin and left it feeling heavy and shiny. It's just too oily for my already oily skin. I think it would be more suited to someone with dry skin who needs that extra boost of moisture. I have discontinued use as I am break out prone.
Lovely facial oil
A blend of many skin-loving oils with a soft pleasant lavender and herbal smell. It comes with an easy to use dropper in a recyclable glass bottle. It can be slightly greasy but this is usually expected from an oil; if you use less and let it absorb in a watery toner layer, it is less sheeny. You can also use this as a drop mixed within the day cream as well instead of a layer before it. It did not make me breakout. After a month of use, I felt my skin was softer and more even toned. As an oil product, it didn’t really help with my dehydration, but I will keep using the whole bottle.
Not for me
This oil is a no for me. I used it alone and also with daycream. It just left my skin greasy, both alone and with cream. I actually got a pimple which I have not had for ages.
I really enjoyed the Smooth & Glow Facial Oil and would recommend it for people with normal to dry skin. The smell is amazing and I liked it best paired with the Garnier Organics Lavandin Anti-Age Cream.
Firstly I absolutely love the transparency of the ingredient list on the products packaging, it has all been broken down so you know exactly what is in your product- I wish all brands would do this!
The consistency of the oil is really nice and absorbs well into the skin. In comparison to other face oils I have tried this isn’t as hydrating as I would like. But it is great for the price
Oil of wonders
I thoroughly enjoyed using this oil in combination with the Garner organics lavandin ant-aging day cream. I feel it brightened and hydrated my skin really well. I would definitely recommend this.
The Perfect Night Oil
I really enjoyed using this product at night! It doesn't sink in quickly and fully enough for the day as I found I looked a bit oily but that's okay. My cheeks can get quite dry so I only focus it on the dry patches but it works wonders! When I wake up, my skin looks plumper and it helps to calm my skin.
A little bit goes a long way so it lasts forever which is great and I am loving that it has a more natural formulation.
Lovely fresh oil
I've never been the biggest fan of oils but I really enjoyed this one. I would mix it in with my daily moisturiser and it sunk into my skin really quickly. The smell was fresh and not too overpowering. I'm not sure I noticed my skin being super glowy but it definitely helped with the overall texture and dryness. You also don't need a lot so this will last a long time. I think it sits quite well under makeup so long as you give it time to sink in properly so it doesn't interfere. I generally put this on then get dressed then come back to makeup and never had any issues with it.
Nice facial oil
Firstly I like the recycled bottle this oil comes in. I found this oil to be quite runny however once applied to the skin it sinks in immediately and doesn’t leave any residue. My skin is normal to combo. I love to use facial oils prior to moisturiser and also on blemishes to hydrate them. I found this oil worked well however I didn’t notice any major results or changes from using this so I am not completely sold on this oil. If you’re in the market for an affordable oil this might suit you. Would work well on a dry normal skin also.
I'm not usually a fan of facial oils - having an oily T-zone, I find that they usually make things worse. In saying that, I have been using this in conjunction with the Garnier Lavandin Anti-Age Day Cream and I have been so impressed. Since I've been using these together, my skin has been smooth, soft and calm which compared to the bumpy, oily and dry mess it usually is - is amazing.
My cheeks are usually so dry that the skin flakes and having such an oily T-zone, it's hard to find something that will work on my whole face.
This doesn't make my skin feel greasy at all, the dropper makes it easy to use and the scent isn't overpowering which is great. All in all, I will continue using this and recommend it to anyone.
Garnier Organics Lavandin Smooth & Glow Facial Oil smells divine and feels lovely on the skin. I enjoyed using it, but there was no change in my skin during the trial.
Luxurious facial oil
Having oily/combination skin, this product was not as well suited for my skin type. However it does feel luxurious and contains high quality organic ingredients. It may be better suited for those with dry skin and although it feels a bit heavy when first applied it absorbs well into the skin. The lavender scent is quite strong which I found quite relaxing/calming however some may find it a bit overpowering particularly if they are sensitive to fragrance.
Happy nourished skin
Oh I love this oil!!! You have to like facial oils to like this and I am certainly that person. I am almost 40 without any wrinkles and I attribute some of that to really caring for my skin with good oils like this. The ingredients are great, there's some lovely plant sources in there like coconut, olive, argan and jojoba. There's also lavender which makes it smell gorgeous. By the way the fragrances listed at the bottom of the list is not added fragrances, it's natural fragrances that are found in the lavender so I'm not worried about that. The packaging is gorgeous too, such an elegant glass bottle and dropper. This product is really great, it's super hydrating and is good during the day and at night. The price is super reasonable too. The trick is to use a small amount and warm it up in the hands before applying. If you apply the right amount it feels lovely on the skin and not oily. I find it goes well under or over the cream in this range but often I just use it on it's own and my skin feels happy. I use a silicone primer over the top to mattify things and then my foundation over that and am getting great results. I recommend this for all skin types but especially normal to drier types but also take note of how I use it for good results. Less is more with skin oils.
Very light weight oil
I love the smell of this oil and the moisturiser! Definitely wouldn't recommend for a drier skin tone- I normally use Jojoba Oil and found this product just couldn't keep up with my skins needs. Interesting dropper- not sure if it is a weird make to accomodate the packaging being made of recycled materials or if its to hit the price point, but I didn't love it. I'm now using this product on my dry hands and finding it to be a better fit than my face. I might switch to this come summer when my skin isn't as dry.
