PROS

Fresh fragrance

Mild on the skin

Good for combination skin

Makes for a good makeup base

Has SPF

CONS

Non-hygienic packaging


Garnier Skin Naturals Light Complete Fairness Serum Cream SPF 19 comes in a fresh yellow tub with a white screw lid. I personally am a very hygienic person, so I wished this cream came with a tube or a pump dispenser. Thought it doesn’t slip and is travel-friendly, it is not hygienic.

Now coming to if I liked this cream, I will say that I did. The fragrance is mild and very fresh. The white texture is creamy, blends easily and is fast absorbing. Since I have combination skin, I love how it has a matte finish and nourishes my skin at the same time.

After three weeks of use, I have noticed that my dark spots are lightened, and my skin tone is now vibrant. I used it every day 10 mins before stepping out of my apartment. I like the fact that it has SPF 19, it minuses my labor of applying a second layer of sunblock cream.

Also, it is an excellent base for makeup. I apply this cream first and proceed to apply my makeup. It gives a smooth texture for my foundation and blushes. Overall, it is an above average fairness cream.

4/5

PROS

Protects the skin from harmful sun rays

Does not irritate the skin

Makes the skin smooth

Is absorbed quickly

Gives a matte finish

Gives instant fairness

CONS


Ever since I have shifted to the city, my skin has drastically become dull. So, on my lookout for skin care products, I came across Garnier Skin Naturals Light Complete Fairness Serum Cream SPF 19. It seemed mild, so I didn’t hesitate to purchase it. The overall look was packaged well.
The outer box comes with fairness scale which helps in keeping track of the progress, so I was all up for measuring the lightning progress.

Sadly, the scale was of no use. The process of checking the progress was confusing. The colors on the scale are not relevant to my actual skin tone, so I didn’t know where to start.

Other than that, the cream itself is a pretty decent one. Of course, I didn’t see any changes within a week, but after a month’s use, my skin feels better in terms of the texture and the look of it.

I am going to purchase it again as of all the fairness creams I have used, this is the best for me.

2.5/5

PROS

Mild fragrance

Has SPF 19

CONS

Not ideal for oily skin during summer

Makes the skin greasy

The fairness scale is useless

Takes longer time to show results


I didn’t see any skin type specification on the packaging, so I assumed it is suitable for all skin types, but I think it is not ideal for oily skin. On first application, I liked the matte finish it gave me because I have oily skin. But after 10-15 minutes, my skin felt heavy and greasy as I was out in the sun. It might be ideal during the winter season but not for summer.
