Garnier Light Milky Lightening Dew Review

Hello, Sunshine^^
I'm sure u who familiar with Loreal brand must know this brand too. If u has followed my blog since the beginning, u would now that I'm a toner type person. I like trying various toner. On this oppotunity, I'm gonna let u know my experience with this product.

Garnier Light Milky Lightening Dew

 The plastic bottle is semi transparent so we can see how much the product inside. 
I took picture when the bottle was still full

Price : Around IDR 41.000 ($5), 150 ML



I my self had a lot of questions in my mind when I passed in front of cosmetic display in the supermarket. 'Milky Lightening Dew', what is that supposed to mean?
At first I bought it because I thought that it was a milk cleanser since the instruction said that it can remove dead skin cells and it has the word 'Milky' on its name.
But when I came home, I looked closer to the detail and googled a bit. Oh yes, I was mistaken. This is not a cleanser. It's a toner. Ha ha how foolish I am...

The instruction is on the back label

This is the instruction written in Bahasa Indonesia. 
(dear, foreign readers please hit the translate button on my side bar)
  
Apakah keistimewaannya?

INGREDIENTS :
AQUA/WATER, ALCOHOL DENAT, GLYCERIN, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, DIMETHICONE, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, ASCORBYL GLUCOSIDE, CAPRYLOYL SALICYLIC ACID, CITRUS MEDICA LIMONUM EXTRACT/LEMON FRUIT EXTRACT, GENTIANA LUTEA EXTRACT/ GENTIANA LUTEA ROOT EXTRACT, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, ACRYLATES/C10-30 ALKYL ACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, AMMONIUM POLYACRYL DIMETHYLTAURAMIDE/AMMONIUM, POLYACRYLOYLDIMETHYL TAURATE, DISODIUM EDTA, PEG-60 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, SODIUM HEXAMETAPHOSPHATE, T-BUTYL ALCOHOL, TRIETHANOLAMINE, XANTHAN GUM, METHYL PARABEN, PHENOXYETHANOL, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, BENZYL SALICYLATE, GERANIOL, LIMONENE, LINALOOL, (B29221/1).

It has flip cap. Pretty useful because I can control the amount of the product I want to use.

This is the hole of the bottle, u can see the product inside.

This lotion smells citrusy and hint of alcohol of course, it's quite strong in my opinion. The texture itself is pretty moisturizing for oily skin like mine. I used it after facial wash. I put it on the cotton and wipe my entire face. Several minutes after application, this lotion made my face bit more oilier than usual and it tended to give me whiteheads on my nose area. Well, I think this product is not for oily skin.

This is how the product looks like when applied on my hand (With flash)
The texture is more like lotion in medium consistency, not watery and thick either.

 The lotion would sink into our skin without leaving any cast.
If u see upper part of picture above, there is part where the lotion half absorbed into my skin.

Pros :
- moisturizing
- brightening effect
- did not dry on skin

Cons :
- not suitable for oily, sensitive and acne prone skin
- tend to give me whiteheads
- perfumed
- various preservatives in it
- contains alcohol

Who may like it :
- dry/normal skin
- want a brightening product
- want a moisturizing toner
- don't mind alcohol, perfume and preservatives

Who may not like it :
- oily, sensitive and acne prone skin
- don't like perfumed skincare
- don't like alcohol and preservatives in it

Repurchase? No.

I gave it to my mom since her skin is dry and not as sensitive as mine. And she likes it. She said that it helps to brighten her skin. Yes, this product really works on dry skin.

Have u ever tried it before? What's ur opinion about this product? Anything u want to suggest me?
I'd like to know ur comments^^
