My Experience with Neutrogena Fine Fairness Gel Cream:
The cream comes in a transparent glass jar. The jar closes securely with a grey-colored screw on type lid. The lid closes tightly and makes this tub packaging leakproof, but the glass jar is bulky and fragile for carrying around during travelling and it needs to be stored securely to prevent breakage. There is also a safety cover inside, which helps to keep the jar and its lid clean and mess-free. The jar does not bear much information about the product on it. All entire-product related information is printed on the outer packaging.
The cream is an off-white, translucent, gel-like cream. It has a very refreshing floral fragrance, which is too mild and can be sniffed only very close to the skin. So, the fragrance is barely bothersome. The texture of the cream is thin and slightly gel-like. It feels smooth and lightweight on the skin. It does not feel heavy or sticky on the skin. It does not take much long to get absorbed into the skin and sets to a dewy finish quickly. It feels so comfortable on the skin, even in this humid weather. This cream does not leave any greasy residue behind. It does not feel that I have layered something heavy on my face.
This formula claims to replenish the skin, giving it a dewy appearance. The cream is non comedogenic, hence it is suitable for oily and acne prone skin. The cream also claims to control melanin secretion. This is best suitable for oily skin types. The formula is moisturizing only for normal to oily skin but as I had mentioned in my earlier post that I have been facing dry skin issues for quite some time and this cream could not provide enough hydration or nourishment to my skin. So, I need a better hydrating formula. If you have dry skin, this crème is just not enough to provide ample amount of hydration. This product has proven to be pretty safe for my sensitive skin and does not cause any breakouts or skin issues.
Coming to the skin lightening and whitening claims – this cream has definitely brightened my complexion and has also helped to diminish some scars and blemishes along with the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Light Mask. It always adds a nice, luminous glow to the skin. This cream does not come with UV protection, so I have to add sunscreen for daytime use. I also layer some hydrating cream to keep my skin nourished.
Overall, this is a regular day crème and it does not really deliver any miraculous results. And, I personally felt that Neutrogena Fine Fairness Brightening Serum worked better on my skin compared to this creme.
