Going Greener With Garnier

A few weeks ago, my friend and fellow blogger, Rachel invited some friends to check out the first stop in Garnier’s Greener Tour. I’m so glad I was able to attend the event, that the event was in my neck of the woods, and that I got this new moisturizer (more on that in a minute)! We don’t normally have big brands visit our little city (and definitely don’t have them in the little off-shoot of the little city where I live), so when Rachel invited me to the event, I was super excited.

The first stop on this summer’s Garnier Greener Tour was Corpus Christi.

The multi-city tour is designed to inform men and women about the recyclability of cosmetic packaging, encourage them to think differently about waste, and teach simple ways to have a positive impact on the environment. The tour bus will feature:

  • TerraCycle collection bins to encourage people to recycle empty personal care and beauty items
  • TerraCycle representative on site to educate on recycling and upcycling
  • Garnier samples and other goodies
  • Garnier styling stations
  • Interactive bottle toss game

I already use Garnier products for my hair including the shampoo, conditioner, and styling product; but, I wasn’t familiar with the skin-care products. One of the items I got at the event was this amazing moisturizer called Moisture Rescue. Y’all, I love this stuff! I am not a big fan of moisturizer at night because I don’t like the heavy feeling, but this gel is so light-weight and soaks right in to your skin! And a little goes a long way. Moisture Rescue will be in my cabinet from now on.

I also learned about the wrinkle minimizing products and other eye products and I’m using a couple of them now. I don’t have a ton of wrinkles, but they are starting, so I want to head them off at the pass! I’ll report back when I have been using them for a while.

In addition to all of the cool products (and super-cute cupcakes) in the big ol’ bus, Garnier’s partner TerraCycle was on hand to recycle and teach. I love this initiative, and you can read more about it on their site.

What is your favorite Garnier product?


*For RSVPing to Rachel’s event, I got a lovely bag of products (including the Moisture Rescue). I was not asked to review the products, but it’s easy to share good thoughts on good products!
