Garnier Skin Naturals is a much-loved skincare brand in India. Be it school-going teens or working young women, it is really tough to find one among them who hasn’t tried Garnier’s products at least once. Though I’m not a big lover of Garnier, I like to try their products for sure. I go attracted to Fairness Facial product due to its “3-in-1” claim. Well, I was not wrong to spend money for it. Here is why:
Garnier White Complete Fairness Facial is the 1st 3-in-1 fairness facial product introduced by Garnier Skin Naturals. It is a dermatologically tested unique face wash-cum-scrub-cum-mask, which is best suited for combination to oily skin. Being a single product with 3 benefits, it can deep cleans as a face wash, removes dark cells as a face scrub and gives instant fairer glow as a face mask. According to Garnier:
Wash: It is enriched with Zinc known for its purifying properties, it helps deep clean and eliminate impurities.
Scrub: It contains pumice, a natural exfoliating agent; it removes dark cells (epidermal cells only) and visibly reduces skin imperfections.
Mask: Enriched with White Clay known for its absorbing properties, it makes complexion more uniform to reveal an instant glow.

Garnier White Complete 3-in-1 Fairness Facial comes in a plastic squeeze tube with a combination of twist-up and flip-top cap. The white tube apparently looks very simple, but the splashes of lemon yellow and the information printed in orange color makes it vibrant as well as attractive. The backside of the tube comes with the demonstration of how to apply the product in 3 different ways. Being an opaque tube, we cannot understand how much product is left inside. But there is a screw cap at the opening of the tube, which allows us to take a peek inside it. The packaging is travel-friendly. In fact, you can carry only this product in your purse to serve as many as 3 purposes, which is hard to believe.
My Take on Garnier White Complete 3-in-1 Fairness Facial
The product has a thick, paste-like consistency. It looks more like a mask than a face wash or scrub. It is white in color with lots of blue micro-beads included in it for exfoliation. The strong cosmetic smell may be a real turn-off for people with sensitive nose. I personally don’t like the smell as it lingers for 4-5 minutes even after washing the face.
I use it daily as a face wash, twice a week as a face scrub and whenever needed as a face mask. I moist my face with water each time and apply a coin-sized amount. As the texture of the product is thick, moistening the face slightly makes the application easier. It is always good to follow the instructions mentioned on the body of the tube. It doesn’t lather like regular face wash, but this doesn’t mean that you have to compromise with its results.
While using as a face wash, my skin feels absolutely clean and fresh. As my skin is on the drier side, I feel a bit dryness and stretchiness right after cleansing. But considering the amazing result, I simply ignore it and moisturize my face immediately.
As a face scrub, it helps me a lot in getting rid of my stubborn blackheads. It exfoliates the skin mildly yet effectively, thereby making it completely free from oil, dirt and dead cells. I just love the way it removes daily tan and give me a smooth, bright skin.
I usually use this product as a mask whenever I need to attend any party, function or special occasion. It gives an instant glow and makes the face look considerably bright. However, it doesn’t last for a long time.
I’m not at all a fan of those fairness products available in the market. But as this product claims to make skin fairer and I’ve been using it since last 3 months now, I can say that it doesn’t do anything to the natural complexion. You can only expect a natural glow and bright-looking skin after each application and that’s all.
