Garnier Skin Naturals holds a special place in the hearts of many skincare enthusiasts in India, catering to everyone from school-going teens to working young women. It’s rare to find someone in these demographics who hasn’t given Garnier’s products a shot. While I may not be a die-hard fan, I enjoy experimenting with their offerings. One product that caught my attention is the Fairness Facial, boasting a “3-in-1” claim. I took the plunge, and my decision to invest in it was right. Here’s 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, best suited for combination with oily skin. Being a single product with three benefits, it can deep cleans as a face wash, remove dark cells as a face scrub, and give an instant fairer glow as a face mask. According to Garnier:
Wash: It is enriched with zinc, known for its purifying properties. It helps deepen cleanliness 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.

As the name suggests, this product can be used in 3 different ways to get flawless Fairness. Here is what Garnier recommends about its applications:
As a face wash, delicately massage on the face and rinse it off. Use daily.
As a face scrub, massage it in a circular motion and rinse it off. Use 2 to 3 times a week.
As a face mask, apply it and let it dry for 3 minutes. Rinse with water. Use once a week.
Avoid the eye area. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with water. If irritation or dryness occurs, reduce the frequency of use.
Rs. 105 for 50 gm.
It is very readily available both online and offline.
Garnier White Complete 3-in-1 Fairness Facial comes in a plastic squeeze tube with twist-up and flip-top caps. The white tube looks very simple, but the splashes of lemon yellow and the information printed in orange make it vibrant and attractive. The backside of the tube demonstrates 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. You can carry only this product in your purse to serve as many as three 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 with lots of blue micro-beads included in it for exfoliation. The solid cosmetic smell may be a real turn-off for people with a sensitive nose. I wouldn’t say I like the scent 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 mask. I moist my face with water each time and apply a coin-sized amount. As the product’s texture is thick, moistening the face slightly makes the application easier. It is always good to follow the instructions mentioned in the body of the tube. It doesn’t lather like regular face wash, but this doesn’t mean you must compromise with its results.
My skin feels clean and fresh while using it as a face wash. As my skin is drier, I think a bit of dryness and stretchiness right after cleansing. But considering the fantastic result, I ignored it and immediately moisturized my face.
As a face scrub, it helps me a lot in getting rid of my stubborn blackheads. It exfoliates the skin mildly yet effectively, utterly free from oil, dirt, and dead cells. I love how it removes daily tan and gives me smooth, bright skin.
I 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 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 for the last three months, 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.
