Review: Garnier Light Complete Night Restore Cream

3 Oct

I was planning to replace Garnier’s Light Speed Serum Cream for my night routine… Because it has UVA/UVB blocker. I didnt have any bad reactions to it. It’s just that I wasnt sure if it’s harmful to use at night. Then I thought of this night cream from the same brand. I looked for a sachet/packet size for this. They don’t have any unlike the serum cream. I had no choice but to buy a 20ml tube. Let’s start. πŸ™‚

I know stores will have their christmas sale in the next few months but these products are rarely on sale. No need to wait for that.

Most of these are my needs. I’ve already used up some of them so they’re not included in the photo. Im controlling myself from doing massive hauls. Im slowly getting there.πŸ˜… anyway, just click on the photo to zoom in.😊 All sporsored items are marked with “***

6 Sep

image

Happy Sunday everyone! This week’s theme is about moisturizers. I tried a lot of creams, serums, gels and lotions for a few years now. I finally decided to make a Top 3 post. The products mentioned below are tried and tested on my extremely oily skin. My skin’s very oily when I wakeup. I based everything from applying them nightly and observing them the next morning and throughout the day. I included the price for your reference. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘―

Let’s start.

Review: Garnier Light Complete Milky Lightening Dew Toner

21 May

Good evening readers! Tonight’s review is about a toner that I bought last month. I stopped using toners for a month because of my chickenpox. Im in search for a toner that will cleanse my skin very well. So I stumbled upon this Garnier toner at a counter. I bought it because was curious about its consistency.

image

What is it:
Its fresh milky formula is enriched with Pure Lemon Essence to help skin smoother, lighter, softer and the complexion more even.

Directions:
Apply with a cotton pad, avoiding the eye contour

Ingredients

Consistency

Pros:
– Affordable. Php 179
– It’s huge!
– Instantly gives moisture to my skin after washing my face
– You can actually use this as moisturizer. Its consistency is like a lotion type.
– It did not add up to my skin’s oiliness
– Absorbs pretty well
– Doesnt leave film

Cons:
– Dries up quicky. You have to keep on re-applying the product to fully remove makeup
– Feels like it doesnt completely remove my makeup. Im not used to its consistency.

Neutral:
– Not sure if this caused my past breakout.

I stopped using this on the face. It might have an effect on my breakouts since it’s thick. My face is lighter than my neck even if I don’t have makeup. I dont want to waste anything. I’m going to use it on my neck. Our neck needs some love too! Haha. πŸ˜›

Review: Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream

29 May

Im back for another quick review. It’s a drugstore product so anyone could purchase it easily. πŸ™‚

today Im going to review another whitening cream. I haven’t used whitening creams for almost a year, I think. Im afraid to use one again because it might break me out. But I still did, since Garnier claims to have natural ingredients. There’s just a little chance that my skin would react differently. πŸ™‚

I bought sachets only because I just wanted to try it. Here’s the packaging:

Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream

The ingredients:
Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream 2

My thoughts on its benefits:

1. Oil Control: This has good oil control. It must be the powder-like finish. But for me, it’s less than 8 hours, maybe 1 to 2 hours. I usually start getting oily 15 to 30 minutes after I finish my skincAre routine.

2. Visible fairness: I didnt see any improvements on Continue reading

Updated: March 2014 Mini Haul

30 Mar

Hello ladies! It’s summer vacation so I can really observe closely if a product is effect or not. πŸ™‚

I’ve been looking for something that I could try, online and in-store. Β And here are the products that made me curious. πŸ™‚

Image From left to right: Professional Skincare Formula 20% TCA Peel, Nivea Pore Minimiser Foam and Garnier Light Completle Multi-Action Cream

PSCF TCA Peel
I’ve been looking for a 20% TCA peel. Luckily, I bought one online. I had one session of 20% TCA Peel on the face before and I liked it. Before applying this on the whole face, I did a patch test first. So far so good. I didnt see any bad reactions.

Nivea Pore Minimiser Foam
I bought this at the supermarket. I needed to have a substitute for my soap.

Garnier Light Complete Cream
I bought this at the supermarket too. I’ve tried the old one before. It was called Dark Spot Corrector Cream. I wanted to buy that one but I couldn’t find any.

image From left to right: Cleene Cotton Rounds/Pads, Celeteque Hydration Alcohol-Free Toner and Nature Republic Aloe Soothing Gel

Cleene Cotton Rounds/Pads
I used this to apply the 20% TCA Peel on my face. πŸ™‚

Celeteque Hydration Alcohol-Free Toner
I didn’t like it at first, but now my skin got used to it. It gives moisture to my skin after cleansing my face. I reviewed this already. If you want to see it, please click here. πŸ™‚

Nature Republic Aloe Soothing Gel
I bought this as my post-peel moisturizer. It has soothing properties, perfect after a peel! Expect that this will be one of my earliest reviews since this doesn’t have any whitening ingredients. I’ll post it soon! πŸ™‚

I’ll post the reviews soon. Since I’mΒ using the foam and cream for about two weeks now. πŸ™‚
