Join the UltraLift Challange!

Garnier, in their nationwide advertising campaign have invited consumers to join the UltraLift Challenge.

To take part, go to to request your free kit. This will include 14 free samples of Garnier UltraLift crème, amounting to a  generous 21ml of UltraLift Day Cream, and a Wrinkle Reader.

Designed in the L’Oréal laboratories and used as a scientific tool to clinically grade wrinkles, the Garnier UltraLift ‘Wrinkle Reader’ has never been available to the public. Its aim is to help participants track the improvement in the appearance of their crow’s feet to really see for a difference after the 14 day trial.

To start, Garnier ask that you match the UltraLift wrinkle reader to your skin type. Then you use the free crème daily and at the end of the 14 days re-evaluate your skin again with the wrinkle reader. Et voila, send in your comments, results and feedback.

With its Anti-wrinkle action, enriched with Pro-Retinol derived from nature, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, even deep ones. Lastly its Firming action leaves your skin feeling noticeably firmer.
