I have been using Fair & Lovely cream since my chilhood days, just because thats the only cream my mother used.
She loved the whitist cast, it gave her, like the temporary whitening effect.
At that time people didnt know much about SPF.
However, It didnt lighten my skin, niether did it save me from tan.
So I switched to Garnier Light Day cream About 5 years back.
I must say it improved my skin a lot.
Most of my pigmentation faded and this reduced my breakouts to a great extend.
It does look messy when you sweat though.
I tan very easily.
Garnier Light Day cream helps me to stay in the sun for about 30 minutes without getting any tan, due to the SPF 15 it contains.
It stops working on lightening your skin tone, once your skin gets used to it.
During my 5 years of using this product, it made my skin 2 tones lighter.
Upon application, it gives a whitish cast, which fades after some time.
My nose starts becoming oily after one hour of application.
No matter which cream you apple, even if its meant for oily skin, if you have oily or combination skin, it will start becoming more oily after application.
This is what i,ve realised.
So, I use pressed powder over it.
And my skin stays super matte and shine free for about 5 hours.
So overall, its a good day cream, if you’re not going to be in the sun for long.
Good moisturizer for combination & oily skin.
Budget friendly and Inexpensive.
Does lighten spots and skin tone to some extent.
Did not cause any irritation.
Cream stops being effective in lightening your skin tone after prolonged use
No broad Spectrum or UVB protection.
Dark spot reduction is very gradual.
Jar / Tub packaging might be unhygienic for some, I personally dont mind.
