Garnier Light Fairness Face Wash Review

When the Garnier Skin Naturals Light Fairness Products had launched last year in India, it was very natural for me to buy all the products belonging to that particular range and try them out. I have used the much hyped Garnier Light daily moisturizer and eye roll with temporarily satisfying results, so decided to move on to try the face wash as well.

Garnier Light Face wash review

The yellow color packaging of the tube is quite attractive & it has a flip top lid like other face washes.

My experience with Garnier Light Fairness Face Wash

I am not as much obsessed with fair skin. However it claims to work on dull skin making it more bright and luminous. My skin gets dull and lifeless during the start of the day itself. Going out in the sweltering heat makes my skin even more dull and sluggish. I mostly use this wash in the mornings only however if I’m really tired by the end of the day, I use this face wash to refresh my skin from the stress of the entire day.

Garnier Light Face wash review
It has a white creamy texture.

What I like about the Garnier Light Fairness face wash?

  • Gives an instant glow.
  • Did lighten my skin little bit.
  • Works according to its claim of making dull skin more visibly radiant.
  • Cleanses my skin thoroughly
  • Also works as a moisturizer as it does not dry the skin after its usage unlike how the other face washes do.
  • Makes my skin extremely soft
  • Does not work up too much lather. A little goes a long way.
  • The texture is quite creamy as in not too thick for it to take time to lather nor to thin or watery types for it to not work on your face.
  • Has a very slight but a great refreshing lemon fragrance.
  • Inexpensive product
  • I noticed that I get fewer breakouts while using this face wash.
  • Also works as a great makeup remover.
  • Does not irritate my eyes at all.

What I don’t like about the Garnier Light Fairness face wash?

  • No mention about which skin type it is suitable for. I have a combination skin and it works for my skin type at least.
  • Just like the other products from this range if you stop using it for 2-3 days you will notice your skin getting back to its normal condition. However, since it’s a face wash you need to use it everyday for it to work.
  • I would have preferred if this face wash had an SPF as well like its moisturizer as nowadays one can get variety of face washes along with SPF plus one normally uses face wash first thing in the morning even if they don’t apply any cream/moisturizer.

Would I repurchase the Garnier Light Fairness face wash?

Yes, I have tried all the products from the light series and I find that this is the best product belonging to the range. I have already used 2 tubes. I am open to using other face washes giving me better results than this. For now I’m satisfied as I think it is value for money.

Really nice that this worked !!! As I tried their cream from this range and it didnt help in skin lightening 🙁


Tara November 22, 2011 at 1:18 pm

Yeah the cream is not that effective. But face wash is good. I have been using it since many years now 🙂


Gaea August 9, 2010 at 1:28 pm

Hi Insiya, great you liked it.
I tried this (think in 2008 and it was available then!?) and apart from not helping any lightening or evening-out, it dried my skin out totally and made me cry! (I have nromal skin with a lightly oily T-Zone most times)

Insiya August 9, 2010 at 1:32 pm

i have almost the same skin.weirdly its working for me atleast during the summers.


Insiya August 9, 2010 at 1:29 pm

I know even i have tried the cream.The face wash gave me better results compared to the cream :-))


Sunayana August 9, 2010 at 1:57 pm

Strangely enough I found this too moisturizing. I have oily acne prone skin. It did brighten up my face immediately after using it though, and did not break me out but there was too much shine on my face after using this, so I stopped using it.


Insiya August 9, 2010 at 2:05 pm

that’s why i think they should have mentioned which skin type would it really suit.


Rati August 9, 2010 at 2:17 pm

I have never used it but from the comments I think it worked for you because of the climate difference between India and your place.


Insiya August 9, 2010 at 2:22 pm

yes i guess that might be the reason but then again i don’t have as such a problematic skin so anything seems to work just fine.


Renuca August 9, 2010 at 2:31 pm

hmmm, I think Ive used this facewash, but I dont remember anything drastic working for me … somehow I have problem believing the claims of fairness and brightness happening with a facewash..after all you apply it and then wash it off immediately, donno if I want a residual effect. But Im glad its working for you Insiya 🙂


Insiya August 9, 2010 at 3:11 pm

I get what you mean.I have given up on products just for their fairness since none of them work 😛 I got this just to get rid of the dullness. it serves pretty good for that purpose.


Priya August 9, 2010 at 2:44 pm

Nice review.. I’m attracted to the tube… I have oily acne prone skin and I might skip this, since they have not mentioned the skin type 🙂


neha August 9, 2010 at 3:59 pm
