Halo and a big smile to all the ladies there. 🙂
Today I am reviewing the latest Garnier oil free moisturiser(yeah the cute Priyanka ‘chip chip ko na na’ ad).
As I said in my earlier review on Clinique’s dramatically different moisturizing gel that I use it for night, I was attracted to Garnier’s claim of OIL free and Sweat free. So there I stepped inside the store again and bought this at Rs.62 for a 18 gm tube.
What the package says
Oil free Daily fairness moisturiser
Fairness + dark spots reduction.
Light texture absorbs oil
Tested in Indian weather (I loved this)
How does it work:
Oil trapping formula to help remove dullness and control excess oil.
Pure lemon essence to clarify and smoothen skin.
Absorbing Powder with ingredients known to have absorbing power.
UV filters known for protection against the sun.
Ingredients:Water, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Alcohol Denat, Nicinamide, Aluminium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Fragrance, and a whole list of dangerous terms I have never heard!
My experience :
It’s a cream based texture which sort of mattifies your skin when applied. Yes it gives a little brighter look to your face unlike the ghastly look that some fairness creams give. But as far as the ‘chip chip ko na na’ claims go, Ms.Priyanka Chopra you are fooling us 😀
- Nice texture.
- No strong smell.
- Contains lemon essence.
- When you wash your face after using this, face appears brighter.
- UV filters.
- Inexpensive so not bad for a try.
- Mattifies skin for a short duration.
- ‘No oil no sweat’ claims are just a hyperbole.
- The list of ingredients might get you thinking.
- No SPF mentioned.
- Doesn’t ofcourse moisturise enough. This is a product for the combination skin type.
Worth giving a try. Better than fair and lovely I think.
My hunt for real ‘no chip chip’ product is still on.
Little prayer: O god-Either get some man’s brain ticking to create a perfect product for humid climates or if such a product does exist, land me there. :))
