Do any of you remember this range from Garnier? Now it comes with a new improved formula and though I am not an advocate of fairness creams (I honestly detest them) but I did test these out for a few days and here's what I think about these. Read on!
Garnier White Complete Speed White Cream :
"Garnier Skin Naturals White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream has the new and improved formula which has speed white serum and lemon essence with the SPF 19 which gives sun protection to the skin. The lemon essence acts as a whitening agent to give fairer and flawless skin."
The cream consists of the new Speed White Serum and Pure lemon essence and spf 19 PA+++
(I like the spf part). It comes in a sturdy tub packaging which is travel friendly. The cream is white and a light consistency.
It does not leave any whitish cast which is common with such creams mostly and it absorbs easily. You do get a temporary brightening effect but it does feel a bit uncomfortable on my skin for 10-15 mins after application (a bit sticky/heavy).
It will be more suitable for oily- combination skins.
Price : 160 INR for 50 g
85 INR for 18g
Garnier White Complete Speed White Face Wash :
"Sun exposure and pollution makes the skin appear dull and dark. This Garnier white complete fairness face wash helps removing the darkness and makes a clear even toned complexion. This is enriched with the purifying deep cleansing agents."
It comes in a white squeezy tube with a yellow flip top cap. The packaging looks really nice. It is leak proof and travel friendly. The product itself has a thick creamy consistency and you only need a small amount. It foams and cleanses well, though leaves a dry stretchy feeling behind. I also find that I am left with an itchy feeling after use :(
Oily skins might find it effective during summers, but if you have a normal-dry skin, I would suggest you skip this one, or moisturize well after use.
Overall, both the products are decent budget buys. They are more suitable for oily skins and gives a temporary brightening effect. If you have normal-dry skin though, then I'd suggest you skip these.
