After the Christmas frenzy over the last couple of days, we are back to our regular scheduled programme on My Women Stuff which is reviews and beauty stuff. Today, we focus on the body and this product just happens to be in one of the gift packs 😉
Its been roughly a month since I first started test-running the Garnier BodyLight Brightening Exfoliating Scrub and BodyLight Whitening Hydrating UV lotion and I think I’m ready with an informed opinion on the product.
The Garnier BodyLight Brightening Exfoliating Scrub and BodyLight Whitening Hydrating UV lotion are new body care products by Garnier and have just been launched here in Malaysia. They are easy to spot in the pharmacy, with their bright cheery yellow bottles which is a nice change from the regular white bottles that body care products come in. I wrote about the product on an earlier post about the new Garnier Bodylight Scrub and Lotion.
Garnier BodyLight Brightening Exfoliating Scrub
The Garnier Bodylight Scrub comes in a tube which is handy in the shower. The product looks rather like a yellow gel when squirted out of the tube, but do be warned that you don’t need much. It doesn’t look like there are any grains in it unlike most other body scrubs. I’m used to those with apricot kernals or ground bits of seed in it, but you don’t get that in the Garnier. What you get is hardish granules which I’m informed is sugar (it doesn’t attract ants though).
When rubbed on the body, the translucent yellow gel turns white and you can feel the hardish granules on the surface of your skin. It dissolves as you go along and I always take care never to rub too hard but as Garnier uses sugar as their exfoliating ingredient, I find that it does not scratch your skin unlike apricot kernals. A good rigorous scrub of the skin in the shower is enough to leave you with lovely soft skin when you step out, with a lingering scent of lemons.
