Garnier Experiment: Day 5

Garnier Experiment: Day 5

For this post I have researched into this 'skin illuminating' business. How does this cream claim to make your skin brighter? My test subject's face is looking pretty bright. I have stroked it several times and there is no build-up or residue that suggests a tint or glittery particles. So what is the secret?


After some digging I have found that it is VITAMIN C that is the illuminating wonder. And since this Garnier miracle moisturiser is packed full of Vitamin C (so much that the cream itself will turn a little brown after being exposed to the air for some time, thereby oxidising the vitamin), this cream succeeds in 'brightening' ones complexion. A website called 'beautyfool' has a short summary post about the benefits of Vit C, and although I do not approve of being called a fool (perhaps she/he is calling her/himself a fool, I do not know but I can only hope), I found the page quite interesting.


And I quote:

 "First of all, it is an anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidant = good. Secondly, it can lighten superficial pigmentation like freckles and melasma. It can also suppress melasma production. It also stimulates collage production, making it a fantastic anti-aging product. It also prevents premature wrinkling and scaring. It also can get rid of the free radicals that can damage your skin. Overall, Vitamin C skincare products can help you repair and prep your skin everyday; improving sun damage on your skin, and throughly exfoliates and cleanses your skin."



So yes, Garnier Dark Spot Correcting and Illuminating Moisturiser is telling the truth when they say 'ILLUMINATING'. Interesting. And illuminating, in the intellectual sense of the word.
