Review: Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Creams


Hi everyone!
A few weeks ago, I received a package from Garnier, which inside were their latest skin care series, Light Complete White Speed, for me to try (check out the unboxing post here). It claimed that by using the whole series, your skin tone will get brighter up to 3 tone fairer after 1 week of usage. How was the result on me?
P.S. this will be a long post so I hope you won't get bored ^^


Name: Light Complete White Speed
Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream
Brand: Garnier
Origin: Indonesia
Content: 40 ml
Usage span: 12 months
Price: IDR 30.000
IDR 4.100 (7 ml)
IDR 16.300 (20 ml)

Ingredients:


Discover the new Garnier Light Complete 12 Hour Shine-Free Serum Cream. Now with WhiteSpeed Serum, its ultra-light formula absorbs quickly into the skin layers, so it works fast. Suitable for Asian skin.
Enriched with Pure Lemon Essence, Salicylic Acid derivative & UVA/UVB filters, the formula gives you:

  • Up to 3 tones fairer
  • Fades out acne & dark marks
  • All-day 12H Shine-Free look
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Long-lasting oil-control effect

To use: spread evenly on perfectly cleansed face and neck, avoid delicate eyes area.


In terms of packaging, Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream came in a tube. Two lacking points are the opening of the tube is too big so that I have to be a little more careful in squeezing out the product and the opening of the tube wasn't sealed (even though the box was sealed with plastic, it would be much better if the tube's opening is sealed too). However, since it's packed in a tube, you don't really have to worry about the hygiene of this product.


Name: Light Complete White Speed
Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream with SPF 19/PA+++
(New Formula)
Brand: Garnier
Origin: Indonesia
Content: 50 ml
Usage span: 12 months
Price: IDR 45.700
IDR 19.200 (18 ml)

Ingredients:


Discover the new Garnier Light Complete Extra UV Protection Serum Cream SPF 19/PA+++. Now with WhiteSpeed Serum, its ultra-light formula absorbs quickly into the skin layers, so it works fast. Suitable for Asian skin.
Enriched with Pure Lemon Essence & SPF 19/PA+++, the formula gives you:

  • Up to 3 tones fairer
  • Fades 3 darkening problems: dark spots, dullness, & acne marks
  • 19x more protection against sun's UVA & UVB rays to help prevent darkening & future spots

To use: spread evenly on perfectly cleansed face and neck, avoid delicate eyes area.


The box packaging is quite unusual since you will have to open the box from the top but you'll find the jar placed like this.


Frankly speaking, I'm pretty much disappointed with its packaging. Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream with SPF 19/PA+++ came in a jar made from glass without any separator and spatula. Hence, I need to be very careful when opening the jar and pay extra attention to the product's hygiene.
It's true that because of the jar was made from glass, it's sturdy. However, it's quite heavy making it less travel-friendly.



Name: Light Complete White Speed
Multi-Action Whitening Night Restore Cream
Brand: Garnier
Origin: Indonesia
Content: 50 ml
Usage span: 12 months
Price: IDR 54.100
IDR 21.000 (20 ml)

Ingredients:


Discover New Garnier Light Complete Night Restore Cream, the new complete whitening nigh cream from Garnier with potent ingredients from natural origin. Wake up for flawless fair skin.
  • Pure Lemon Essence and Natural Peeling Fruit Extracts help provide an intensive exfoliation over night
  • Long Dan Extract with Vitamin C helps lighten skin tone and reduces dark spots

To use: spread evenly on perfectly cleansed face and neck, avoid delicate eyes area.


Packaging-wise, Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Night Restore Cream basically has the exact same packaging with the New Formula Serum Cream with SPF which disappoints me on the same aspects; no separator, no spatula, and not travel-friendly. But of course, it's pretty much sturdy too.


Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream
The first impression I had when I squeezed out the product was it looked like whipped cream. Texture-wise, Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream is quite sticky when applied to my face, slightly thicker than the New Formula Serum Cream with SPF 19 and the Night Restore Cream. Although I could say that this absorbs into the skin fast, it still feels quite sticky on the skin.
Talking about the scent, it has lemon scent combined with slight musky (?) scent which I don't really like.

Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream with SPF 19/PA+++
Speaking of the texture, Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Serum Cream with SPF 19/PA+++ 's is lighter and less sticky than the Serum Cream. It does absorb fast too.
It has strong lemon scent which again, I don't really like. But I do still prefer this scent over the Serum Cream's scent.
Regarding the formula, I would say that SPF 19 is not enough for Indonesians who live in a humid and tropical country. Why is it not formulated with at least SPF 30, instead? It's inefficient with SPF 19 since I still have to apply another layer of sunblock when I'm going out.

Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Night Restore Cream
Compared to the Serum Cream and New Formula Serum Cream with SPF, Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Night Restore Cream has the lightest formula. It absorbs to skin very fast and moisturize my skin well.
With fresh lemon scent, I love the scent of Garnier's Light Complete White Speed Multi-Action Whitening Night Restore Cream the most.

forehead area

After 1 week of using the entire series, I could feel that my acne scars on my forehead faded. As you can see on the photo above, my skin got brighter than before, although I can't say that my skin tone got fairer since I think my skin tone is fair enough. However on the beginning of usage, it triggered acne on my skin, some on my forehead, and some on the cheeks which had gotten better after a few days.
Perhaps. it's because of the New Formula Serum Cream with SPF contains silica (I've searched for it and it's safe for cosmetics) that clogs my pores, thus triggers acne.

Overall Ratings: 4/5




Serum Cream? No.
New Formula Serum Cream with SPF? No.
Night Restore Cream? Yes!
Although I don't really think the Serum Cream and New Formula Serum Cream with SPF are suitable for my skin, the Night Restore Cream suit my skin very well and also, either it texture-wise or scent-wise, I love Night Restore Cream the most.
