I totally have not been using moisturizer since I stopped using Celeteque some months ago because I have been swamped with products to review and I feel I need to concentrate on one thing at a time to be able to assess the product better.
But since the recent products I’m testing out are about 2-3 weeks old, I decided to go ahead and find myself a moisturizer.
I’m actually a night owl (surprise surprise~eye bags) so I didn’t think it would be a good choice to get a day cream/moisturizer as I wouldn’t be awake to apply it. Haha.
So when I visited the mall last week, I checked out some night creams and finally decided on this one by Garnier. There is a sachet version of this, I think, but thought it might not last long enough to make a review of. 😀 #bloggerlogic But I still got a smaller tube of 20 ml, afraid to commit to something bigger and more expensive too soon.
So what do I think about this product? Here’s my review:

- Pure lemon essence
- Natural peeling fruit extracts
- Long Dan extract
- Vitamin C
It claims to:
- intensively exfoliate skin
- lighten dark spots
- even out skin tone
- make skin look fairer and fresher
Price and Availability
I haven’t noticed if my skin tone got fairer. I’m pretty fair as it is (lack of sunlight most likely). I am okay with that though. What I was after was some hyperpigmentations to lighten up. I only noticed a slight improvement, but that may be because I haven’t been using this for too long. I know, it would have been best if I tried this out some more, but I’m almost running out of this. I guess 20ml isn’t much.
I also woke up to crazy greasy skin with this. Not exactly a fresh feeling. :/ But after washing my face, it feels fresher then. 😀
I haven’t experienced any exfoliation too. Or maybe I was just expecting for something that never happened, like peeling or grits or the substance to turn to gel like some exfoliating products are known to do.
With that being said, my skin looks *slightly* better than the week before. Hopefully with prolonged use the effects would be more noticeable. I am willing to try this out again to see how it fares.
