This €3.99 coconut milk moisturiser is a flippin’ miracle, quite frankly
The heatwave sun was rough on the skin.
All that sand and salty water has a major drying effect, which we’re all feeling the effects of now it’s cooled off a little bit.
There’s a moisturiser for every skin ailment these days, but it’s rare we come across one that garners the type of rave reviews fans are piling on one magical budget fix-all – and you can pick it up with your grocery shop for a bargain €3.99.
The name is a mouthful; it’s Garnier Intensive 7 Days Coconut Milk Probiotic Extract Body Lotion Dry Rough Skin, but the formula packs a major punch and you get a big 400ml bottle so you can slather it on with wild abandon.
Here’s the science bit: the cream is enriched with a fragment of probiotic, inspired by actives found in yoghurts, to reinforce the skin’s natural protective barrier and help maintain long-lasting hydration.
It’s formulated with natural origin coconut milk made from the creamy pulp of mature coconut kernels, harvested in French Polynesia if you don’t mind, and known for its soothing and nourishing properties.
Fast-absorbing, non-greasy and non-sticky, the lotion goes on like a dream, leaving skin instantly softer, smoother and healthy looking. We tested it and with daily application, it can even extend the life of a spray tan by at least three days.
It’s also officially approved by Cruelty Free International under the Leaping Bunny Programme so nothing to worry about there either.
The recommended retail price for Garnier Intensive 7 Days Coconut Milk Probiotic Extract Body Lotion Dry Rough Skin is €7.99 but we’ve seen it available on offer in Cork pharmacies such as Boots for just €3.99.
Our advice? Buy three.
And keep it to yourself so we don’t run out.
