Garnier Light Overnight Peeling Fairness Cream Review

Garnier Light Overnight Peeling Fairness Cream Review
Review by Nice
Hello to all the Readers Here,
Let me introduce myself to you as this is my first time here. I am Nice and a mom of two boys, a 5 year old and a 5 month old. That pretty much sums up who I am at present. My life these days revolve around my sons and when I find a breather, this is what I do as this is a real stress buster for me. Let’s move onto the review now. I am here to review an overnight cream, Garnier Light Overnight peeling fairness cream. This was an impulse buy for me when I was in search of an overnight cream. Garnier products have not fared very well with me. Read on to find out how this one fared….

What Garnier says
Why do I need Garnier light overnight peeling fairness cream?
1. Away from external aggression, night is the ideal time to reinforce whitening action. Light overnight cream has special natural micro peeling fruit extracts that help peel away dark cells and lighten the skin while you sleep.
2. Your day cream should be designed for the harsh outdoors. during the day use Light Daily Moisturiser SPF 15, which provides protection from UVA & UVB rays, and helps prevent appearance of dark spots.

How does it work?
1. Peels off dullness overnight thanks to an intensive exfoliation action to help remove dark cells.
2. Whitens the skin to reduce dark spots and further skin darkening.
3. Its melting texture moisturize and nourishes your skin overnight, leaving it smooth with a satin finish.
4. Melanin production is reduced (the pigment responsible for darkening and dark spot production).

A unique night cream with an innovative micro-peeling action. Throughout the day harmful sun’s rays, dust and pollution produce dark cells on your skin. Peel them away while you sleep with Garnier Light Night dual formula.

Visible efficacy:
1. In the morning, your skin is fresh and fairer.
2. Skin looks fairer in 28 days, dark spots reduce.

How to apply?
1. Apply every night on perfectly cleansed skin.
2. Gently massage into the skin using light circular movements, moving from the center of your face outwards, and away from the base of your neck to the top.
Do not apply to the delicate eye contour area or on irritated skin.

It comes in a tub-like packaging with a screw on lid making it travel friendly.

It smells very citrusy and fresh. It may be a little bothering to really sensitive noses. The colour is a nice creamy white. The texture is on the runny creamier side as you can see from the swatch. It spreads out
well onto the skin and takes a while to completely seep into the skin.

What is my opinion about the product?
Well, I was on the lookout for an overnight cream that was decently priced and some of the reviews about this cream I came across elsewhere were not all that bad either. So, I decided to give it a try. I used this every night after my bath before bed. It spreads nicely onto the skin but needs a little bit of work to send it right in. I have extremely dry skin and hair with a slightly oily T-zone. However, I found this cream to be a little oily even for my skin type. But the smell is amazing. Just what you’d need after along day. On looking at my face the next morning, I did notice a glow and fresh look.
It does work in that department and upon continuous usage I did notice a slight reduction in my dark spots. But, remember that I am a stay at home mom and hardly step out of my house during the day time. So I cannot vouch this claim for all the ladies out there who have sun related dark spots. I cannot vouch for the “fairness in 28 days” claim either as I was basically not looking for that. The only major con I found with this was that it broke me out several times initially!!!! But then that too settled after continuous usage. Also, I found that if you stopped the usage for a few days the face would go back to how it was before…. Now, I have completely hit bottom of my tub and got myself Himalaya night cream which I can review if need be to find out which I prefer more.

I am happy with this cream as all I was looking for was a decently priced overnight nourishing cream which this one lives up to pretty decently. And due to its texture a little goes a long way……

I like it because
♦ It is decently priced
♦ A little goes a long way
♦ It has an amazing fresh and citrus smell
♦ It has a smooth texture
♦ The early morning face is glowing and smooth
♦ It works on dark spots to an extent

I dislike it because
♦ The texture is a little oily and needs some massaging into the skin
♦ It broke me out initially
♦ Upon stopping the usage the face goes back to square one….

My final verdict and will I repurchase it
Now, if you are on the lookout for a decently priced overnight nourishing cream, then this could be it. It works pretty decently but don’t expect miraculous changes to the face. Continuous usage might give the desired benefits!!

I think I will repurchase this one again as I was pleased with the results.

I would give a rating of 4/5.

About The Writer:
My name is Nice and I am a stay at home mom of two young boys aging 5 years and 5 months. All the free time I get got me hooked onto skin care and hair care which I looked up for on the Internet thereby landing in this vast ocean of beauty blogging and reviews and make up tips etc.... I have dry skin with a slightly oily T zone and very dry hair. Even summers are torturous for me. I am medium fair to wheatish complexion. I love reading and now obviously writing reviews. I am more of a Skincare haircare enthusiast than a makeup one with the exception of lipsticks. 

So, what do you have to sat about this cream….
Hope this review was useful. Until next time….stay happy
