Garnier Skin Naturals, Sun Control Daily Moisturizer Review

Hello Friends! ❤❤❤

How is everyone doing? 🙂

In the recent years, there has been much hype in the Internet about using Sunscreen indoors; while cooking, while picking up clothes that you left outside for drying and while doing random chores around the house! Even dermatologists recommend wearing Sunscreen throughout the day!

But WHY so?
Because, “Whenever we can see the sun, he can see us too!”!!!

Yes! Even a little exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can cause lasting damage to our skin.. 🙁

And it’s not just the sun, even the cooking flame emits low amount of UV rays that we need to protect ourselves from!

Having said that, I know how irritating it is to apply Sunscreen topped with a Moisturizer during Summers! 🙁

So, when I came across this product from Garnier a few months back, which claims to be a Sunscreen plus Moisturizer, I instantly bought it… Let’s see it worked well, or I regretted buying it, later! 😀

Although Garnier had always disappointed me in the past, from their Sunscreens to shampoos, I still took the risk and purchased this product from Amazon after reading so many good reviews about it there..
I actually bought it only for indoor use as SPF 15 is too low to be used outdoors, and I prefer using a product meant only for sun protection, while I am in direct sunlight! 😛

This Sun Block Lotion comes in a cute, sleek tube packaging with an orange screw on lid… The lotion is slightly peachy in colour and has a non greasy texture.. It also has a mild floral smell to it, that fades away after application, so it won’t be a problem for sensitive noses.. ❤

The lotion has a medium consistency which is easy to spread on the skin but it doesn’t get absorbed in the skin quickly and forms a slight greasy white cast on the face which takes quite some time to get absorbed.. 🙁

I have a combination to oily skin during Summers and it makes my face quite greasy and sweaty even when I use it indoors.. 🙁

I have also tried using it during Winters, when my skin gets a bit dry, but it still made my skin a little greasy and dark, without providing much of hydration… 🙁

So, although it makes the face greasy, it fails to provide much hydration to normal or dry skin..

Now, I can not comment about its claims of preventing “Premature ageing”, but It certainly doesn’t help “Prevent skin darkening”, as I had applied it liberally on my face before going out in sun for just about 15 minutes and returned back with a red and tanned face! 🙁 Even after applying my regular tan removal scrub, the redness remained for quite some time..

This sun block lotion really failed miserably for me!

(Also read my review over Aroma Magic Sun Block Lotion here..)



1. Travel friendly and cute packaging..

2. Easily available both online and offline.. You can buy it from here!

3. It is a okayish product for dry skinned beauties, especially if you are planning to stay indoors for the whole day.


1. Any skin type except dry ones, should not opt for this product or it would make them sweat like anything.

2. Doesn’t help prevent skin darkening.

3. Makes even normal skin quite greasy.

4. Low SPF and not worth the money!

5. Will make you tan badly if used outdoors.


FINAL TAKE: I am never going to buy this again! It might suit extreme dry to dry skinned beauties, but wouldn’t suit normal to oily skinned girls at all ! 🙁

Hope It Helps ❤

Sharing is caring... ❤

  1. I’ve normal to oily skin so this is not my type product. Sad that it doesn’t prevent skin darkening

      1. I have a dry skin and it doesn’t suit me… It is really difficult to blend , makes my skin dull and doesn’t help in tanning at all… In fact I am getting more tanned that I get without using any sunscreen… So pretty accurate review.

  2. I have an oily skin and I totally avoid greasy creams. Thanks for your review. It is very useful for me. I will definitely avoid this one.

  3. Garnier is a trusted name for my personal use and nowadays I use many different products.

  4. I love the travel friendly packaging it’s quite cute but since I have dry skin reading your reviews I analyse I cannot give this one a try

  5. I have normal skin which tends to get very oily if I apply cream based lotions. I am a skeptic if I can use it or not.

  6. Really loved the honest review, I will refrain from buying this product coz my skin isnt dry and it will make my skin look even more greasy n oily.

  7. Thanks for an honest feedback. I don’t really like products that make me sweat and as my skin isn’t dry, this is probably not for me.

  8. Great post! I love your genuine opinions about beauty products and that’s why I always come to read your thoughts. Spf 15 is too low for a sun lotion. Thanks for review. I would give it a miss.

  9. Thanks for sharing your honest opinion. There are many products available in market with more sun protection factor and perform better job. Even the moisturisers also come with spf 30 these days so a sun lotion with spf 15 doesn’t do anything for me.

  10. There are very few products which actually suit my sensitive skin, and Sunscreen is something which has always troubled me. Garnier despite being a wonderful brand has some terrible products too.

  11. I go for a natural sunscreen gels, read Aloe Gels, my experience with Sunscreens isn’t all that good either and yes I have tried this product ?

  12. That’s really sad to know that a big brand like this could not meet our expectation after saying so much for their product

  13. With such big brand if product is not upto mark what can we expect … I have never used it but now even if I think I have to think twice

  14. That’s so bad, brand claims so much but it’s sad that it doesn’t work for you. I too have oily skin and avoid greasy creams for that
