Garnier Skin Naturals Mattifying Fairness Cream Review

Garnier skin naturals – LightMatte Review

Hello everyone ! today I will tell you about my experience with mattifying fairness cream by Garnier called LightMatte. I never buy fairness creams or any creams of that sort for my face. Lactocalamine is the only thing that touches my face. So how did this thing land up at my place? My mom got it free with Garnier hair color .

Product: LightMatte – mattifying fairness cream
Price: 85 rupees
Quantity: 40ml


Is Garnier light matte right for me?
Yes, if your skin is dull and becomes sticky, you need a fairness cream that not only gives you an instant fair look but also keeps your skin mattified up to 6 hours.

How is it different?
This unique fairness cream is formulated to take care of your skin everyday. Keeps skin mattified up to 6 hours for a shine free look. Makes you look fairer right after the first application. Keeps skin moisturised for 24 hours.

How do I use Garnier LightMatte ?
Apply everyday after washing your face with garnier light face wash.
Gently massage into the skin using circular movements, moving from the inside of your face outwards and from base of your neck to the top.
It may be applied as often as required.

My experience with Garnier Skin Naturals Mattifying Fairness Cream

This cream comes in a tube with a white screw cap top. Unscrew the tap and squeeze a little of the cream to apply it on your face right after washing your face with the face wash. I did just that with the cream and what an experience I had !!!
It was little after diwali last year that I used this cream for the first time. I clearly remember it because it was the most important day of my life so far.It was the day I had to give a presentation of my PhD project in front of my committee members of the board to get them approve of my project. I so was tensed that day .  I was worked up a bit too much with practicing my speech and getting ready to defend my project.
I started out by wearing the best of my formal clothes and even put up bit of wearable makeup to look presentable in front of the committee. At first I washed my face , after which I took a small amount of the cream and worked my way from the inside of my face towards out – just like they had mentioned on the tube.
The first thing I noticed about the cream was the consistency – it was creamy but not very light. Next thing I noticed right after I applied the cream on the face was it smell – it smelled quite nice and fresh and lemony. I quite liked the way the cream blended into my face and gave that instant fair look the product promised.
I was so happy with the result. The cream gave me a fair and matte look all over my face. I left home and reached my college .. everything was fine till then . . as hour passed I took a trip to the washroom and the horror dawned upon me !! My face was shining like a disco ball ! SO MUCH FOR THE 6 HOUR MATTE LOOK !! To top it all my makeup was messed up. Everything was patchy and blotchy. I had to wash my face and re-do everything again. I was so annoyed. I had not got my compact or anything except for my eyeliner that day .
This product is like putting chuna on your face !! The moment you put it, it settles on your face like a wet chuna drying up to give you fair matte look . The moment you step outside your house, it turns disastrous !!
I don’t recommend wasting a penny on this product; On the other hand I suggest gifting this product to your “ FRENEMIES” .

            1. Hi Preeti, I don’t know about others, but what I always carry in my makeup kitty are – Blotting sheets coz I have oily skin and these sheets help a lot in getting rid of the excess oil, compact powder, concealer, lip balm, sun block and a black eyeliner.

              Additionally I also carry some lipsticks, a lip gloss and mascara!! 😀 😀 😀

Nope… 😛 I wanted to buy it from CS only ..but I wanted to use my amazon gift vouchers…and for that I had to buy from amazon only!! :(( ..CS from Amazon doesn’t ship to India, for that I have to buy from their website only and at their website they don’t accept Amazon gift vouchers.. So, I went ahead and bought the one from “The Brush Company”. The reviews were good!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Lets see how it fares with me!! 😀 😀 Howz your CS palette treating you siri?
