Garnier Skin Naturals Light Gentle Exfoliating Scrub Review
I am a scrubber loyalist. I have dry skin which constantly gets blackheads and is prone to dullness. For this purpose I prefer using scrubs on a regular basis than face wash because I love the squeaky clean feeling which a scrub gives. I have used many scrubs from different brands promising many claims mostly anti-tan. Most of them lived to my expectations (Yes, I know I am lucky here). Read on Biotique Bio Papaya Revitalizing tan removal scrub.
So, this is another try for me in scrub department. Introducing you ladies, to Garnier Skin Naturals Light Gentle Exfoliating Scrub.
Pure lemon essence and long than effectively cleanse the skin for optimum brightening results. Micro beads gently remove impurities and gently exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving your skin soft, smooth and even looking.
Rs 49 for 50 gms
key ingredients are lemon fruit extract, jojoba esters and Parabens.
The scrub is a part of Garnier light range which is suitable for all skin types. The product comes in a flip flop cap. This kind of caps is hygienic and quite convenient to use. The cap will ooze out product if not tightly closed. So, the packaging is a minus for me.
The product is yellow in colour with a gel like texture. It has micro yellow beads as scrubs which feel quite gentle on skin. The product heavily smells of lemon and I feel the granules are also lemon extracts. People allergic to lemon might skip it. The product needs to be applied on wet face otherwise the gel will be too dry and difficult to spread evenly. While application only I felt the gel being too sticky. The gel is thicker in consistency which makes it difficult to spread out. I message my skin with this scrub for say 4-5 minutes and then leave for other 2 minutes after which I wash off.

My Experience with Garnier Skin Naturals Light Gentle Exfoliating Scrub:
I keep switching between scrubs. Yes, I have got some of my favourite scrubs. But I like experimenting within newer ones. After all the cosmetic market is huge….so, it’s fun experimenting always.
I bought this serum on the claims of anti-tan. I was in Delhi for last 2.5 months and got severely tanned there. So, I desperately needed something which proves to be an anti-tanner. You will require much more water as compared to regular scrubs. I felt my facial skin sticky. Yes, ladies it cleansed my face effectively but stocky face that too I am a morning scrub girl is really not appreciated. I washed my face 2-3 times more to get rid of that sticky feeling. Coming to the claims it worked as anti-tanner but very slow. I really mean ladies very very slow. I have earlier also used anti-tan scrubs but none of them were so slow. You can feel a little difference say 5% on your tanned skin after 20-25 days usage. So, that’s again a turn off for me. As far as fairness claim is concerned i didn’t notice any fairness in my facial skin even after completing the tube. The tube comes in a decent size which lasted me 1.5 months with daily usage.
Whether I would recommend this product to others –
For me it was a complete disappointment lady. Somehow Garnier products don’t seem to work for me. I won’t even recommend it for regular scrubs leave the claims.
