What Garnier Claims:
Its special formula blends a moisturizer with selected ingredients:

Glycerol and extracts of coriander to retain the skin’s moisture and prevent it from drying while nourishing.

Ingredients

Key Ingredients – Mexoryl SX,Vitamin E, Glycerol and extracts of coriander.

My skin type – combination.

Price – Rs. 130

Quantity – 50 ml

Packaging

Packaging: comes in a upside down white bottle with orange screw cap. the opening is a nozzle.

What Mexoryl SX does:
Mexoryl SX ia a water soluble sunscreen which filters UVA rays.

Consistency – its a light orange runny lotion.

Consistency

My Experience:
I got this one to use as a body sunscreen.
but had to try on my face as well for a complete review.
Upon application, my face became very greasyand it took some time to get absorbed into the skin.
Even after being absorbed my skin felt quite greasy.
the lotion is runny in consistency and the fragrance is quite ok.
this one will not bother sensitive noses.
I have dry skin on by body.
after application on my arms, it didnt feel greasy at all and got absorbed within minutes.
Now cuming to the sun protection factor, Garnier Sun Control Daily Moisturiser does not have any SPF mentioned.
However the newer versions of this moisturiser claims to have SPF 15.
Normally i avoid using any sunscreen without SPF as i don’t trust them.
This one i used just to test the effectiveness.
I can say I safely stayed in the sun for about 15 mins in the sun with this moisturiser on.
And after that my skin started tanning.
So, to sum up I would say this would be an ideal sunscreen to be worn indoors or if you going to be in the sun for a short duration and definately for those with dry skin, as its an excellent moisturiser.
Also since this moisturiser contains water soluble sunscreen, it wont work, if you sweat a lot or while swimming.

Pros:
Suitable for dry skin
Provides short term sun protection.
Moisturiser + Suncreen 2-in-1
Pea sized quantity is enough for one application on face, so this bottle is goin to last for a long time.

Cons:
makes skin greasy apon application.
not suitable for oily & combination skin
No spf mentioned – not for reliable & long sun protection
Takes time to get absorbed
No complete ingredients list mentioned

Will I Purchase it again – Definately not, I’ll try other suncreens. Also as of now I’m very happy with my Garnier BB Cream.

Would I Recommend – Yes to dry skinned people and also to those who dont stay in the sun for long.

Beauty Gyaan (BG) Rating – 1.5 out of 5.

My Experience:
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.

Pros:
Good moisturizer for combination & oily skin.
Budget friendly and Inexpensive.
Does lighten spots and skin tone to some extent.
Did not cause any irritation.

Cons:
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.
