Garnier puts out quality skincare that definitely is useful for any skin type. They are one of the top mass market skincare companies in the world. Today I'd like to review something that I tried and loved. It is called Garnier SkinActive Glow Boost Illuminating Moisturizer

This moisturizer is formulated with 96% naturally derived ingredients and this illuminating, glow boosting face moisturizer with apricot extract gives skin an instant glow, either with or without makeup. Use this moisturizing lotion as it blends seamlessly into all skin tones and has a sheer finish. It leaves skin more radiant, brighter and glowing. Skin will feel healthier, energized and feels softer and more supple. A glow boosting moisturizer such as this primes skin for makeup application and it can be layered with other products such as a sunscreen (it does NOT have a sunscreen in it). Try this illuminating face-moisturizer with apricot to turbo charge your glow for instantly hydrated, fresh, healthy radiant looking skin. It can be used as your daily moisturizer, apply to clean, dry skin. I would highly recommend using a SPF over it/under it, at least with a SPF30. 

What I like about this is that it leaves skin looking radiant and with a nice glow to it but without looking too much like some sort of iridescent disco ball went off on the face. Also it goes well with any skin tone, even darker skin tones. I think you will find that it also gives your skin a nice glow as well. I do wish it had a SPF in it but that is my own personal opinion. I think that would be great and it would save me from having to take the place of using another cream on top of this or underneath it. After using this and then using foundation on top it still looks glowing and pretty. You can use this alone without makeup and it looks very nice. If you do, then definitely wear a SPF30.
