New from Garnier comes Garnier Aqua Defense – a new line of skincare by Garnier that promises to lock in your skin’s moisture while boosting your skin’s defenses. How better to sell it than to enlist the crystal clear beauty of up and coming Chinese actress Crystal Liu Yi Fei.
Garnier Aqua Defense contains fruit waters and Vitamin E to protect and defend skin from external aggressions and free radicals so your skin is left supple and hydrated all day.
The whole Garnier Aqua Defense line comes in light green packaging and everything smells faintly of fruits and green apples. Its really very refreshing as I discovered recently during the press launch at Khareyana Spa.
This Garnier lineup has been available in Singapore for a while now but we’re finally getting it in Malaysia in July 2009 🙂
The star product and one I particularly liked on first try is the Garnier Aqua Defense Moisturizing Essence (RM19.90/50ml). Its a light gel essence that leaves your skin feeling cool, moisturized and supple and just velvety smooth. I don’t know how it performs in the long run but the immediate effect was amazing. I’ll report when its been put through the mill for a longer test.
The rest of the product line up in the Garnier Aqua Defense range are:-
- Aqua Defense Cleansing Foam 100ml – RM10.90
- Aqua Defense Toner 200ml – RM16.90
- Aqua Defense Eye Roll On 15ml – RM21.90
- Aqua Defense Gel Cream 50ml – RM17.90
- Aqua Defense Moisturizing Essence 50ml – RM19.90
- Aqua Defense Moisturizing Body Lotion – RM16.90/250ml RM21.90/400ml
The body lotion reminded me of the texture of the Garnier Bodylight lotion. It felt light and not sticky. I can’t bear it when I apply lotion and then find myself sticking to chairs or the floor or when my sheets start feeling sticky from lotion 😛
The Garnier Aqua Defense lineup hits the Malaysian shelves in July 2009 so do watch out for it.
Has anyone tried Khareyana Spa?
I rather enjoyed the little afternoon session at Khareyana Spa but it was for “work” so I couldn’t quite poke around as much as I’d like, nor could I try out any of the spa packages they had.
Each massage room is contained within its own “chalet” that you get to by using stepping stones over a pond. As I have poor coordination I strived so hard to pay attention to where I was going that I was quite worn out by the time I got to the room LOL… Didn’t help that I was wearing slippers a few sizes too large for me 🙂
Still, I might return some day to try out their massage packages. It looks interesting and the spa is done up in a very relaxing manner. Khareyana Spa is a standalone bungalow in Petaling Jaya and you can get the location here.
If you have been here, do let me know how you like it and what you recommend to try. I’m always up for trying a new spa!
