* no SPF but it has UVA/UVB filters.
* texture is kinda thick
* I broke out! Tested it on my chin area only, after a few days i noticed tiny bumps and whiteheads huhu...

Test the product first before using it on your entire face to see if you're hiyang with it. My friend tested this moisturiser and she loved it! She even bought a tube for herself, she has super oily skin btw..

Will not repurchase. This is a good makeup base/moisturiser that controls shine, but too bad I'm allergic to it.

Align CenterWhen blended. Notice how matte it looks? =)

I tried this as well, and it did control shine!

Too bad, I also broke out. ;( But I'm gonna give it another try. :)

Michelle said...

I would like to try this too. Maybe I should buy the one in sachet muna before purchasing a big tube. Thanks for the review. ♥

khymm, i tried the garnier toner last year. i got an allergic reaction too. i had small itchy rashes on my chin and cheeks. sayang naman kasi they look promising pa naman.

Pammy said...

Yikes. It broke you out too. :( Yeah, Shobe really likes this product. :P

Ethel said...

I love Garnier's Light skincare line!! Haven't tried this one, though. Never really broke out, I love the moisturizer, especially because of the lemon-y scent!

Too bad you broke out...:-S

Rusty said...

i ultra love this product. super cheap pa hhehe. at super dami pa kung mag lagay ako. too bad nde sya hiyang sa other people =(

(have regular diamond peel - malaki mababawas non sa irritation sa mga creams pramis!!!)

Unknown said...

Ba't parang umitim ata yung skin after mo pagapply ng cream, maputi pa yung hand mo sa 1st pic pero ba't umitim sa 2nd pic..?

Miss Shopcoholic said...

@ma.crestinagono - sa lighting kasi yan kaya maiitim tingnan sorry =)

Unknown said...

Sorry gurls but it hiyang to me. This cream is such a nice one compared to other product lalo na yung ponds. This one controls oil. After you apply the cream onto your face, the result is fine. Sa dami ng products I've been using before, dito lang ako napansin. Maraming nagtatanong kung anong gamit ko and of courseI would say Garnier... Luv it!

Unknown said...

Where part did you testing it ?
Maybe I buy sachet muna to know na hiyang ako..

Unknown said...

How many times ko tong gagamitin sa isangaraw ? If night or day po ba ?
