Garnier Vitamin C Daily UV SPF50 Review

hihi all, I hope all is well and good with you! Summer is right on the way so I thought I will bring you a series of reviews for sunscreens! For some people summer is the season they wear SPF so I’m hoping these reviews come in handy.

Today Im talking about the Garnier Vitamin C Daily UV SPF50. This is a gifted product. This product is described as This Daily UV Fluid combines a very high protection SPF50+ (UVA, UVB & long UVA) to help prevent dark spots, with Vitamin C* known for its efficacy on boosting brightness and improving complexion. It also contains Peptides known to smooth skin and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate with an invisible lightweight formula.


I experienced no irritation with it and it did not sting my eyes.

The texture is lightweight and watery and it sinks into the skin with ease. It does have a alcohol scent but it doesn’t linger. This is a chemical SPF

Is it invisible on dark skin? YES. this SPF is 100% on the skin as shown in my pics below

Feel on skin– upon initial application, the SPF feels hydrating and lightweight and even leaves a semi dewy finish however once fully dry its matte and I feel leaves my skin dry. What I do not like about this product is the fact that it pills when dry. Once fully dry if you touch your face it starts to pill. I don’t like it under makeup because of this. It doesn’t pair well with some primers and because it leaves my skin dry & a bit tight, I can feel that underneath my makeup


On paper this SPF sounds so good. It has peptides, Vit c and hyaluronic acid in addition to high factor broad spectrum protection however the matte finish and pilling for me makes this unenjoyable

I wont recommend this particular SPF because Garnier have a lot of amazing SPFs that are also invisible but no pilling!
