Review: Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Regenerating Serum

Garnier Nutritioniste Serum

Bionic sampled Garnier Nutritioniste’s new line of Skin care, specifically the Skin Renew Daily Regenerating Serum. The serum is billed to brighten dull skin, alleviate fine lines, and even up your skin tone.

Garnier’s facial serum smells wonderful!! Not medicinal, chemical or too flowery, it’s a just perfect blend of fruit and fresh. The scent diminishes quickly once applied.

Application is smooth and easy. A little pea-size of product is easily spread across your entire face. I applied every evening for two weeks and my skin did seem much smoother, softer and firmer. I also noticed that my skin had a nice “glow” to it after about a week.

In summary, I’d certainly recommend purchasing this product. If you’re hesitant, sample first or ask your local drugstore if they have a sample you could try. This serum has achieved second place behind my Boots Restore and Renew serum and this is simply based on value for me. The Boots product is a teensy bit more affordable on price per ounce.

Worth mentioning is the container. The serum is packaged nicely is a fresh green pump, which I love since it’s sanitary and keeps the product fresh.

You can buy Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Daily Regenerating Serum at for $11.99 for a 1.7 oz pump.

I recently tried the regenerating serum. What a mistake, the next day my face was red as a beet & itched very bad. I buy only natural items & I think there are more chemicals in this than nature, because I have never had a reaction before. I wasted $13.00 for false advertising.

Theresa, Sorry that you had to go through that mess. It is always horrible to have a bad reaction to something and to have spent the money on it. Thanks for sharing your review though! What type of skin do you have so maybe it could help other BB readers decide if this will or won’t work for them?

I use this serum every day after washing my face, and it has been an absolute Godsend!!! I had very clear skin until I was about 23, when I suddenly found myself suffering badly from adult acne. I tried every over the counter product including Pro-Activ, and even sought the help of a dermatologist and used their prescription of stinky messy creams. Nothing really worked and most things I tried only worsened my problem. I first bought this serum because I needed a moisturizer and once years ago tried a moisturizer called a “serum” and it seemed to really help with the dryness without being greasy. Since this product makes no mention of acne on it’s label, I wasn’t expecting the fact that I can now remain completely acne free by using it just once a day. I guess that it’s due to taking off that outer layer of dead skin cells that it is able to accomplish this. It’s odd because no other method of exfoliation has provided this benefit to me, so there must be something else in the formulation that also helps. All I know is that if I stop using it for a few days, I suddenly start to break out again. Not only does it help with the acne but it virtually eliminates all blackheads and otherwise clogged pores on my face. Even if I search out to pick at something, there isn’t anything there to pick at. I absolutely recommend this product for any woman looking to freshen the look of their complexion. Having clear, smooth and soft skin takes years off like nothing else, not to mention the weight lifted from your shoulders! If I had only found this product years ago when I first developed the breakouts, I may have saved myself some scarring in addition to the upset. WELL worth the money. (I use 3 pumps, on a slightly damp face, and rub all over my face until it’s almost dry.)

I bought the entire line yesterday and woke up this morning with incredibly red and raw itching skin. I have very sensitive skin but read someplace on the internet that this was good for roseacea. Wrong. I’ve never been diagnosed with roseacea but do have very sensitive skin. I wish I could find something that really works.

Hi Sally, I’m sorry you had such a bad experience! I recommend you starting with your normal routine and just add one product at a time when you try something new. That way you will know which product reacted with your skin.
Personally, I liked their serum (detailed above) but if you look at my other Garnier Nutrioniste reviews on here, you’ll see that the rest of the products were a no-go for me. Breakouts, stinging, dryness, etc. I always recommend waiting until you can find a free sample on a new skincare item as well. That’s how I tried this line for free- and you are not wasting your hard earned cash to buy a product that will not work for you.

Garnier does samples quite frequently so stay tuned!
And Welcome to Bionic Beauty! I hope to see you around here more often. 🙂
