Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days

Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days - bottles

I was first introduced to these body lotions when I was at the Fall 2013 L’Oreal Warehouse sale. I don’t generally pay too much attention to body lotions in general so when I spotted them, I figured I might as well give them a try. Here are two of them for review: Soothing Lotion with Honey, and Soothing Gel-Cream with Peach Oil.


The Packaging

These bottles come in two sizes: 250ml and 400ml. Since I was trying them out, I had bought the 250ml bottles. Each bottle has a bit of an hourglass shape to them, which is neat since it gives it a unique shape. The base is pretty small so it actually tips over easily if your sleeve accidentally brushes past it.

The top has a small cap that does flip open to reveal a little hole. The bottles are the squeezable variety and are made of pliable plastic, so they will go back to their original shape after being squeezed.


The Product

  • Soothing Lotion with Honey – This has a light lotion texture that requires a little bit of time in order for it to absorb into the skin. It doesn’t soak in immediately, but a few rubs and my skin drinks it up. It leaves my skin nice and soft. It has a sweet fragrance to it that doesn’t exactly remind me of honey, but it definitely smells sweet.

  • Soothing Gel-Cream with Peach Oil The gel-cream has a bit of an odd texture, in that it’s partly a gel but partly a cream. When I apply it on my skin, it almost has a grainy-like texture to it, but there’s nothing grainy about it – it’s purely the gel that’s being rubbed into the skin. It’s a little weird, but it does soak into my skin much faster than the soothing lotion. This lotion also has a sweet fragrance to it that doesn’t exactly smells like peaches.


The Verdict

I like this body lotion a lot. I actually bought the larger 400ml bottle of the soothing lotion because I liked it so much. I did use each one continuously on separately occasions so I could get a good idea of how good the hydration worked. Each one did live up to its claim of having reduced dryness and roughness, as well as increased suppleness to the skin. The only thing I didn’t like was that grainy-like texture to the gel-cream. It’s for that reason only that I have repurchased the lotion over the gel-cream. For those with dry skin, I really recommend this!


Where to Buy

  • Well.ca ($7.79 for 250ml)
  • Shoppers Drug Mart (I think I’ve seen the 250ml bottles for $8 but I can’t remember exactly)
  • Walmart ($4.97 for 250ml)
