I have tried Garnier products multiple times and every time I used a Garnier Product, I got itchy skin. But this was years back in my teenage days. Now that we are in 2019, I wondered if Garnier is still the same or got Improved over time? 

I decided to try Garnier again and see if it works for me now. The best I could find to give Garnier another try is by trying this combo of face cream and body lotion at a discounted price. I also got the duo action Garnier Light Face Wash and wrinkle-lift along with the combo which I will be reviewing in my upcoming blog posts. 

Let see how it worked for me.

---IMPORTANT---

Now, I really don't know why the product claims revolve around whitening and giving fairer skin. We are in 2019 and I am pretty sure we all are well educated enough to understand our skin color comes from melanin production which is all-natural. 

I love my skin tone and I love all the skin tone we have in our human race be it darkest as cocoa or lightest as white. 

Lightening and Brightening is something else which targets pimple spots and uneven skin tone whereas whitening is a deadly chemical process which can be highly dangerous. 

More on the Difference Between Lightening, Brightening, and Whitening can be found here.

Hence, I will also suggest you to not to go for a product all because it says "whitening". Go for it because you really like the formulation, it suits your skin, and your skin feels healthy with it.

The only reason I bought this combo because I actually wanted to see if Garmier still gives me itchy skin or suit my skin.

Review - Garnier Light Complete Serum Cream


My Skin Type: Combination to Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone

It comes in a round plastic tub with a screw lid. The texture of the cream is light but I feel it is extremely matte which makes it a bit uncomfortable to massage on the face.

Even though I have combination to oily skin, but the application is matte up to a level which makes my skin feel dry. Whereas I like my skin to be moisturized and glowy.

Because it feels matte and a bit drying on the application, I won't suggest dry skin people go for this.

After massaging on the skin, it leaves a slight whitish cast (weird!) which fades away after massaging in. Not only this, it forms tiny small white balls. Even though it faded away, I didn't like the feel and look of it. 

I continued using it for a few days and what I noticed was, I was getting pimples and itchy skin. I stopped using it for a while to check if my skin gets back to normal and yes, it did! I realized it was the Garnier Light which is causing irritation.

I couldn't use it any longer to see if it works on pimple spots because of the allergic reaction I was having after using the cream. 

I discontinued using it as it was clear to me that Garnier Products are still the same giving my skin breakouts and irritation.

Pros
  • Affordable

Cons
  • Gives Breakouts and Itchy Skin
  • Leaves Whitish Cast
  • Forms small white balls on the skin after massaging
  • Not for Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin
  • Leaves a totally matte finish which is slightly drying
  • Feels a bit drying while massaging

The Lotion can be applied on face and body, both, hence I tried it as a body lotion and facial moisturizer.

The consistency of this is like a regular lotion, i.e, that is thick and runny enough to apply and massage easily. It has a refreshing fragrance as well.

I regularly used this as my facial moisturizer and body lotion and realized that it works great as a body lotion. Though it forms small white balls after massaging completely which I don't know why. It isn't that hydrating sort of lotion but does a good job for moisturizing. It is great for people with oily and sweaty skin but it might not work during winters when skin gets dry.

I didn't get any irritation or acne on the body so it passed the test for me as a body lotion

But, it worked the same way as Garnier serum cream when used on the face, that is, gave me an allergic reaction. 

Though I like the formulation of it for the face, that is slightly moisturizing and not a total matte, it doesn't even leave the whitish cast, but still, I couldn't use it because I got irritation and itchy skin when used on the face.

After trying this combo, I got a clear indication that Garnier is never going to work for me. It not only gives me pimples but also makes my skin itchy.

Pros
  • Affordable
  • Refreshing Fragrance
  • Works great as a body lotion
  • Lightweight
  • Moisturizing

Cons
  • Using on the face can lead to breakouts and itchiness
  • Forms small white balls upon massaging


In Short,

Garnier Products used to, and still cause breakouts and itchy skin. Definitely, not for sensitive and acne-prone skin. The Garnier Serum body lotion is somewhat good but only when used as a body lotion. Using on face can lead to breakouts. The Garnier Light Cream is a bit drying, leaves whitish cast and causes itchy skin.

So This was it for today. I hope you have found this post helpful.

Have a Good Day! 😇
