Garnier Body LightExtra Whitening Repairing Milk Lotion

While I commit the skincare crime of not moisturizing my oily face at night, I religiously apply lotion all over my body every night. I have a hard time falling asleep when I don't use lotion, because I hate the uncomfortable dry skin feeling.

Garnier Body LightExtra Whitening Repairing Milk Lotion

I got this big bottle of Garnier lotion a few months ago, and now I'm halfway through with it. I try my best to open and use just 1 bottle of lotion at a time, so they won't accumulate on my nightstand.

About the product:
 

Ingredients:
 

Pros:
  • Manufacturing date is indicated in the packaging.
  • It has a fresh, lemon scent similar to their face products. While on face products, it's a con to have such a strong fragrance, on the body I don't mind at all.
  • Body milk or milk lotions means it has a lighter texture/consistency, and is more watery compared to other lotions.
  • It is easily absorbed into the skin.
  • It's non-sticky.
  • It has UV filters to provide the skin with minimal sun protection. (Some form of protection is better than none at all.)
  • Skin feels smooth and supple, and looks more healthy after application.
  • This lotion is ideally for normal to just slightly dry skin.

Cons:
  • It contains mineral oil, a potential pore clogger.
  • The "measurable whitening efficacy" ruler is not effective for me. My skin tone doesn't match any of the shades indicated on the base of the packaging.
  • Even with everyday use, I noticed no visible change in my skin tone.
  • It is not enough to moisturize flaky and/or very dry skin (such as heels).

Will I repurchase? No, I've tried other light-textured lotions more moisturizing than this.
Price: P229.00
Available in supermarkets and leading department stores nationwide.

This one from Garnier I consider as a day lotion because of it's light texture. I like that it smells fresh, is definitely non-sticky, and has UV filters to protect our skin from the sun's damaging rays. However, I still prefer using thicker body butters for full-on moisturizing power, since it's only at night when I moisturize my body.

What lotion are you currently using? How do you find it? :)

Love,
Helen

    1. The brand idea is nice but I have also yet to try one that will wow me. I've been using the Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-on for months now and it seems to work okay, but it's still not HG for me.
