Hello ladies! Let us talk about the most basic skincare product today. It is a relatively newly launched face wash from Garnier. If you have used Garnier products earlier, you will be familiar with the Garnier Light Complete Range. This range of skincare products consists of various products that are aimed at reducing the appearance of blemishes and removing tanning on a daily basis.
Product Name: Garnier Light Complete White Speed Duo Action Face Wash
Price and Quantity: It retails for INR 160 for 100 g of the product.
Availability: This face wash is readily available at drugstores, supermarkets and even online. You can buy here.
Packaging and Appearance: This face wash comes in a white tube with some vibrant graphics. The cap is lemon coloured and flips open. The tube needs to be squeezed for dispensing the product. The pack is travel friendly, leakage proof and handy. All the details of the product like ingredients, directions of use etc. is printed on the tube.
Claims: This Garnier face wash claims to do the following:
● Helps to visibly fade out the blemishes and dark spots on your face
● Helps to give your brighter and fairer looking skin
Ingredients: For the entire list of ingredients, please refer to the image. However, I will describe the key ingredients for you here:
Mineral White Clay: That helps to absorb the extra oil on your skin
Lemon Extracts: Lemon is a natural bleaching agent and helps to reduce dark spots on your skin
Vitamin B3 extracts: These help to decrease the prominence of dark spots
Shelf life: 36 months from the date of manufacture
Texture and Consistency: Garnier Light Complete White Speed Duo Action Face Wash is Lemon in colour and has a thick texture. It is not runny at all and sits in the exact spot you dispense it. You need to foam it up for using. For my face, a pea sized amount is all that is required. The tube is handy and I carry it every day in my purse to get rid of extra oil from my face whenever I feel like.
Fragrance: It has a pleasant fragrance that soothes my mind. I cannot exactly smell lemons, though.
Swatch: Please refer to the image.
How to use:
● Moisten face using water. Pour a pea-sized amount of product in your palm.
● Rub moist palms on face to generate some lather.
● Gently massage for a minute and rinse thoroughly with water.
● Pat dry.
My Experience: I will start by saying that it is a basic face wash and nothing too fancy. I have very oily skin and I need to wash my face as soon as I reach home to get rid of all the dirt and impurities that have accumulated on my face. Also, I need a face wash in my purse at all times. So, I opted for Garnier Light Complete White Speed Duo Action face wash, this time around.
This is one face wash I keep in my purse while commuting as it is not runny. Since, it has thick consistency, the chances of leakage are very low. Secondly, I only need very small quantity for a single use so, I know this will last quite long for me. It foams very well and is gentle on skin. I do not feel any kind of irritation while or after using it.
It contains Vitamins, mineral clay and Lemon extracts which work together to get rid of oil, dirt and impurities. Forget about the Lemon extracts making you fair claim, we all know that is lame! It does nothing with regards to skin pigmentation. So, if you really want to get rid of pigmentation, invest in rich face masks, sheet masks and skin treatments.
After usage, my skin looks much cleaner and still not deprived of moisture. I seriously do not expect anything magical from a face wash! Overall, it is a good pick but do not have any unrealistic expectations from it.

Do I Recommend?
If you are in love with trying different product, go ahead. It is a good face wash but it would not solve any pigmentation problems. Do not expect it to fade away your dark spots, either.
Would I Repurchase?
I would not repurchase as I love experimenting with different products and this one gives me no special reason to invest in, again!
Overall Summary: It is a good product for daily use for normal, oily and combination skin types. It cleans well but is not effective for addressing any other skin related issues.
