Garnier Gentle Clarifying Foam and Whiten and Protect Moisturizing Cream

Because I bought so much stuff from Maybelline, (and maybe prodded the attendant a little) Nerissa gave me this:

Actually 7 boxes which contained:

Let's take a look at the Garnier Gentle Clarifying Foam first.

If you have sensitive skin, I will tell you upfront to avoid this product by all means! First time I used this, my face broke out into a gajillion zits. Kidding, just 2. Even MB who has normal skin had 3 huge pimples for a few days! And we had 7 mini bottles which I gave to my cousins. I hope they had a better experience than us.

Now the Whiten and Protect Moisturizing Cream is another story...

I have absolutely no idea why I'm so hiyang to this product. I don't break out. I even use it to whiten some dark spots on my face. I've been using it for months now and have not encountered a problem. One pack is enough for 2 applications on my face, neck and d├ęcolletage. I'm now using this instead of Pond's. I no longer use any Pond's product after so many years of loyalty to the brand.

I like this cream. It's not greasy, not oily.It leaves a smooth matte finish. And even after a few hours without makeup, my face is not shiny at all unlike with Pond's moisturizers. I also like the subtle fragrance. It doesn't give me allergies. If you have sensitive skin, I suggest you test this product out first before applying all over your face. Maybe apply some on the insides of your elbow or on your jaw line then test for itching and rashes.

This product blends well with makeup primers and liquid foundation from The Face Shop. Will I repurchase? Already did! Bought 2 bottles in spite of still having a dozen or so more of the free packs.

How about you? Do you you use Garnier products? How do you find them?


  1. really? Garnier broke me out after 2 weeks. Maybe even less than that :/
    I'm trying Pond's.
    I'll be posting a review on Garnier myself in a while :)

  2. Hi Pinkish! I've stopped using Garnier. I am now loyal to Clinique
