Fairer skin tone has been popular all across Asia, and it has long been a trend where majority of women desire to have a fairer and lighter skin complexion. The Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream has been in the shelves for years now and I just got myself a jar after my cousins asked me to give it a try. Here’s my personal review about this day cream after trying it for 14 days.
What They Say
Discover the new Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Extra UV Protection Serum Cream SPF 19/PA+++. Now with White Speed Serum, its ultra-light formula absorbs quickly into the skin layers, so it works fast. Suitable for Asian skin.
Enriched with Pure Lemon Essence and SPF 19/PA+++, the formula gives you:
- Up to 3 tones fairer.
- Fades 3 darkening problems: Dark Spots, Dullness, and Acne Marks.
- 19x more protection against sun’s UVA & UVB rays to help prevent darkening & future spots.
What I Say
This newly improved Light Complete White Speed is infused with White Speed Serum that claimed to help brighten up the complexion within 14 days.
This day cream comes in a sturdy and heavy glass has extra protection SPF19/PA+++. I’m quite disappointed because the cream does not come with a spatula for hygienic purpose. Moreover, I find it’s less travel friendly as it comes in a sturdy, and heavy jar.
The cream has a quite non-greasy and thick texture. I don’t like the texture as it takes time for my skin to absorb and it always leave white residue. Moreover, it makes my skin a bit cakey when applying with make-up. Anyway, I like the fresh lemon scent, and cooling sensation upon application onto the skin. It also leaves my skin matte finish. I find this is quite unsuitable for matured skin because of its thick texture, and less blendability.
I love this cream as my skin feels smooth and soft after applying it. However, I figure out that this cream does not fully function as moisturiser but rather a whitening cream. This cream also help to lighten up some of my acne scars, and dark spots thus creating a more flawless complexion. The price is affordable, and you can easily grab this from drugstores.
This might not be a friendly option if you are experiencing severe acne skin conditions. In fact, as much as you might know what mercury can do harm to your skin, so does Metylparaben.

Frankly speaking, I’d prefer to apply it on my dark elbows and knees because these are the parts where I need to be fairer.
