Products with lemon essence definitely make me go crazy. Though I am not particularly a fan of whitening creams and face washes yet “Garnier Skin Naturals White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream and Face Wash” caught my eye and I thought of giving these a try.
I have been using both the products for over a week and as claimed by the brand, you will see the difference in your skin within 7 days. I was more excited as I was going to try a cream and face wash duo for the first time as it sounded promising to me.

My Experience with Garnier Skin Naturals White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream SPF 19 PA+++ and Face Wash –
My skin being super oily, I stay away from day creams and prefer aloe vera gel or matt sunscreen instead. But since the face wash is good enough for my oily skin and these products are meant to be used together, I gave this cream a try. As per claims, it instantly brightens up the face and makes one look a bit fairer. Sun protection is an added advantage.
But after 5 mins or so, I found that this cream becomes little sticky on my face. Don’t blame it, in this humidity, nothing goes on me. None at all. But the good part is that, it doesn’t cause any breakouts even in this hot and humid weather. So, I am sure, I will be able to use this in winters.
I gave this cream to my cousin too to use who has normal skin with oily T-zone and it suited her perfectly. Yes for instant fairness and brightened skin. But really, I can’t comment on long term fairness as I don’t believe in any such thing 🙂. Instantly it cleans and brightens the complexion, that is sufficient for me 🙂.
Face Wash –
I liked the face wash as it is perfect for my oily skin and it doesn’t cause any breakouts even in this super humid Delhi weather. My skin feels thoroughly clean and fresh after using it. I loved the mild fragrance too. Instantly it really makes the skin fairer but as it has only been a week I am not sure about the long term results. But in this week, I have seen some brightening effects and a cleaner skin.
It doesn’t cause me any breakouts. It doesn’t lather too much but spreads well, cleanses well and washes off easily. It doesn’t leave any sticky feeling to the skin and also, doesn’t dry out the skin.
Overall Rating –
Face wash – 4.5/5
Cream – 3.5/5
I would surely recommend the face wash to all my beauties and guys too who look for instant brightness and fairness in skin tone, all skin types. You are gonna love it.
If you want to achieve better results and want sun protection too then I would recommend you to go for the combo – Facewash + Cream. You will get better results and skin will be moisturized too. Boon for dry and normal/ combination skin types. Good for oilies too but leave the very hot and humid months.
