REVIEW: Garnier Moisture Match Shine Be Gone Mattifying Fresh Cream with Green Tea & Mannose


Garnier Moisture Match Shine be Gone Mattifying Fresh Cream for Combination to Oily skin - £3, ASDA


How've you been?

I've been searching and hunting for products aimed at combination to oily skin like nobodies business this past month. I've bought Benefit's POREfessional, topped up on my Estee Lauder Double Wear & Rimmel Stay Matte powder and now I've found a moisturiser aimed at people with my skin type - Hurray!

My skin is loving me this month as I've been listening to it's needs and trying to meet them as best I can with my budget so when I saw this little ditty for £3 I couldn't say no!

This range is aimed at all sorts of skin types and there are 4 other primers in the range such as: Start Afresh Light Softening Cream, Goodbye Dry Ultra-Hydrating Rich Cream, Wake Me Up Revitalising Hydrating Gel, Protect and Glow Illuminating Light Lotion. So there is definitely something for everyone!

I chose Shine Be Gone as i get a very very oily t-zone and sometimes even my cheeks are oily so I need a good dose of moisture to keep the oil at bay for as long as possible. This cream claims to give 24hr moisture whilst keeping your skin matte.

It definitely gives you the moisture but I would only say it keeps you matte for around 5 hours, which is quite sad as I was expecting 24hr matte-ness as well. Maybe I expect too much, however I don't really mind about the lack of matte as I have many other products that keep me matte, so the extra 5 hours this gives me is a bonus.

What I do love about this products are the skin benefits, my blemishes and spots have significantly reduced/stopped appearing (whichever you prefer) since I started using this 3 weeks ago and my skin is super soft. I wasn't expecting these benefits when I bought it so I am actually really really chuffed that I did take a risk and buy something new for my skin care routine. I use this day an night after washing my face and it's worked wonders or me so far so here's hoping it continues.

Have you tried this cream? Let me know!

  1. I wish this had more matte free time with it but I suppose for £3, 5 hours without shine is really good.

    1. Yeah I know, it's good enough and I always use a mattifying primer and setting powder anyway so it all helps! xxx

  2. what a lovely review I am a bit apprehensive when it comes to adding new products to my daily skin routine but this seems like a good product to try

    1. Definitely make sure they're suited to you specific skin type. Then you shouldn't steer too far wrong :) xxx
