Just in time for Earth Month, I was invited to attend Garnier’s 120th anniversary celebration held at a pop-up location at King and Spadina. Garnier is a leading global hair colour, hair care and skin care brand that, believe it or not, was established in 1904!

In line with Earth Month and the brand’s commitment to sustainability, cruelty free and green beauty, we enjoyed a healthy breakfast catered by Drink Juice Co. including wellness shots, Sweet Greens organic cold pressed juice, salads and Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats.

We were then introduced to some of Garnier’s new hair and skincare products and participated in experiments to test them out.


Garnier’s new SkinActive Micellar Gentle Peeling Water not only removes makeup, but gently exfoliates the skin. Garnier has also introduced their new eco conscious SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Eco Pads, which can be washed and reused up to 1,000 times! Using Garnier Micellar Cleansing Eco Pads will make me feel I am protecting the environment rather than using one-time-use cotton pads.

We returned to Science class to see how effective Garnier SkinActive Micellar Gentle Peeling Water is by performing a simple experiment: We added a drop of Garnier Micellar Water to a saucer of milk, which removed the lipids from the milk demonstrating how Garnier Micellar Water removes dirt and toxins from the skin.

We also were introduced to Garnier SkinActive Vitamin C Brightening Night Serum that contains 10% pure Vitamin C. Toronto Dermatologist Dr. Geeta Yadav was on hand to answer all of our questions about serums and Vitamin C. We found out that it is recommended to apply a Vitamin C serum in the morning and at night for maximum results. Did you know that Vitamin C serums that have been opened expire within 3-6 months?

Garnier has just launched their Fructis Hair Filler + Ceramide Sulfate-Free Shampoo; Conditioner; Bonding Inner Fiber Repair Treatment; and Serum. We put a comb through hair samples that had not been washed with Garnier Fructose Hair Filler Shampoo, Conditioner, Repair Treatment and Serum and those that had. The latter samples were so much easier to comb!

Finally, we had our hair tested to see how dry and damaged it was. Mine was healthier than I thought considering I colour mine a lot!

Thank you for inviting me to Garnier’s 120th anniversary event! I learned a lot about Garnier haircare and skincare and had a wonderful time!
