BEAUTY: Garnier Light Clarifying Foam Review

Hello everyone! I've left my blog for a while now, lot of surprises and events happening for the past days and I can't get to write anything. I miss my bloggie friends. :) Hope you missed me too.

Anyway, I'll be reviewing a beauty product today and one of the most-used in my stash. Must-say a favorite one. I am Garnier user for the longest time. If I can remember it right, Hubby bought my first Garnier product here in Manila because it wasn't popular in my place back then. It is always unavailable to most supermarket.

My love for it started in December 2008 and since then I'm very loyal. If you'll notice I'm more focus into whitening my skin. I prefer choosing products that can whiten it over moisturizing it. I know it isn't a good idea right? :) But you can't blame me, I'm an Asian and we want to be light. Well, I'm still part of those ladies who believes that the lighter the skin the better. And I'm telling you, I ain't good when my skin's dark. Eeeek!

Garnier Light Clarifying Foam

  • With pure lemon essence and herbal extract
  • Clears impurities and make-up
  • Clarifies the skin day after day

Garnier Skin Naturals Commitments
  • Natural active ingredients present in their purest form
  • Dermatologist tested for safety

My take on it

  • Really whitens your face but don't expect to have the Snow White kind of white
  • Never had a breakout because of it, ever
  • Claims to have pure natural ingredients
  • Finds the lemony scent not too overpowering -- because whenever I get to use a product with that scent all I can remember is the product we use to wash our plates haha :)
  • True to what it says, it clarifies the skin day after day
  • Face smells clean after using it
  • Very affordable

  • Leaves my skin tight and flaky on first use

As you can see, I have more good notes here rather than the bad ones. Let's just say that's how much I love the product. Though I have a Normal to Dry skin type, I just help my skin by moisturizing it well. Never really had a breakout with it but I still have the occasional zits due to our red visits. This is one product I truly swear!

  • Always use moisturizer and sunblock. This is very important because you need extra effort in protecting your skin when using whitening products.
  • Rest your skin for a while after few months of using it. I don't know if it's just me but my skin feels tired whenever I use a product for a long time. I go for Clinique as an exchange.

Will I buy this again?
Of course!

Where and How much?
This product can be found on all leading department stores and supermarkets. I bought mine at Watsons for PhP 79 in 50 mL tube.

How about you? Do you also like to whiten your skin or moisturizing it is your top priority? Well, for me I have to say both. Have a safe and happy long weekend. :)

  1. now that i'm older, i 'd rather go for moisturization of skin other than lightening. but as long as it doesn't cause breakouts and makes the skin oily, that's fine with me.

    have a great week!
