Haul Time – Crazzzzzyyyyy & back to the world again!!

Its been a long long time since there has anything being shared or reviewed here. The last year has been very tough year for me emotionally & physically. However now I am back and trying to make things normal again. And the first thing that I have done to make life normal was to take a vacation. And when there is vacation there is relaxing & of course shopping !!!! If you follow me on Instagram you would probably know the beauty shopping that has taken place in the last 3-4 weeks.

I travelled to London last month & it was perfect tie to be there. The weather was so good. London has so much to offer when it comes to beauty, the high end brands as well as the best of the drugstore brands which are not available in India. I am sharing the beauty part of my shopping from London. Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I did 🙂

Garnier white complete fairness face wash review & Pics

*Guest Post by Pallavi Bose*

Hello beauties, hope you all are doing great…The weather is changing now a days and with this changing weather I also thought to change my beauty tools. I used to be face wash girl in my earlier teens when I think clean & clear face wash was everybody’s favorite. Then in college days when my face gradually became full of blackheads and more dirt I shifted to scrubs. And today I am a regular buyer of scrubs and today I proudly can say that I have used many of them right from tan removal to brightening the skin and daily cleanup. But while one day travelling to mother’s place I forgot my scrub and so used this face wash.

MY VIEWS:Garnier white complete fairness face wash comes in regular squeezed tube of bright yellow and white in color. The tube is medium sized with a screw cap which prevents product spillage or damage when pressure is applied on the tube. The packaging is quite travel-friendly.

The face wash is thick white in color and creamy texture. Because of the creamy tecture it does not lathers too well and require lots of water to wash it off.It has mild lemon fragrance which disappears as soon as the face wash is washed off. So, sensitive noses you don’t need to worry.

The face wash gives squeaky clean face when washed off. But here comes the sad part no whitening or brightening of face can be seen. Yes, I no one should not expect a 100 watt bulb overnight. But even slight of brightness should be seen after cleaning off the face wash. So, as per the company claims there is no brightening effect leave alone the whitening promises.

RATING-1/5

RECOMMENDATION: This is just a regular face wash which only cleanses face. Its mild creamy texture does not even lathers up well. Moreover,  requires lots of water to clean out the face. So, for me this face wash does not even performs like regular face wash for me.

PACKAGING :The packaging is very simple with a beige outer cover that is opaque having a white cap.It is travel freindly.

???????????????????????????????

OVERALL PERFORMANCE:The garnier BB cream is available only in 1 shade in India. However,it does adjusts to every skin tone and provides a healthy,dewy glow to face.

On application,it does provide a bit of white cast on my face but becomes normal within 3-5 minutes.

The texture of the BB cream is niether very runny nor very thick but spreads out easily.It is very hydratign and moisturising.

???????????????????????????????

The coverage is very light but sufficient to even out skin tone and cover minor redness.But major problem areas need concealer.

Finish is dewy but not very much.It gives a healthy glow ot face.

I like how light it feels on face and blends easily.I mostly apply it with my fingers.It also has SPF 24 that gives UVA/UVB protection along with Vitamin C that works as antioxidants.

L-R: bare hand,with bb cream,blended!!

It has a pleasant fragrance which may be overpowering for sensitive noses but it smells good and the fragrance lingers for quite sometime.Staying power is around 5-6 hours which is pretty decent.

I mostly use it under my foundation for added benefits.
