Product Review: Garnier Overnight Whitening Peeling Cream

Phew, what a long name! Nevertheless, I've read some good reviews about this, not to mention  it's affordable! So I decided to give this a try.
According to Garnier, the active ingredients are pure lemon essence + natural peeling fruit extracts.

I don't really want to have fairer skin, but since my chest is much lighter than my face, I have to even out my skintone. Of course, I don't expect miracles from this cream, but I think it does help. After using it for more than a month, a few of my friends commented that I have gotten fairer, so I guess it works, since this is the only whitening product I'm using on my face as of now.

Here are the pros and cons IMO:

PROS
  • very affordable
  • does help whiten but don't expect miracles
  • nice lemon-y scent

CONS
  • It's not easily absorbed by the skin so it does leave a bit of a sticky feeling in the skin especially for an oily gal like me
  • You have to dip your hands in the tub so some people find this unhygienic. Use a spatula if you want it to be more hygienic
  • Can sting a bit if you have sensitive skin
I don't recommend that you skip moisturizer after using this despite the slightly greasy feeling.

This is a good choice for people who are on a budget.

How much? P199 for 50 ml.

Will I buy again? Maybe.

Rating: 3.5/5

That's very interesting! Most peeling products I've used are wipe-off, so I've never tried an overnight one before.
