As someone with normal-to-dry skin not particularly prone to breakouts, I've never spent more than $15 on a daily moisturizer — and even that's pushing it. So when I noticed that this Garnier Clearly Brighter moisturizer had a whopping 15K customer reviews with a 4.1-star average, I wanted to see what was up.
Here's the thing: It's pretty tough to prove that a moisturizer has truly made one's skin more luminous via side-by-side iPhone pics. So the best I can do is this photo of me without makeup or filters, four months into using the product every morning.

So...is this a miracle product? Not necessarily. But based on my experience (and the testimonials of thousands of happy moisturized faces), is it a fantastic choice for anyone with skin that veers into dry/dull territory and doesn't want to drop a ton of money on their daily moisturizer? I would absolutely say so!
