Overall Experience:
Whenever I read Suitable For All Skin Types, I just drop the product and look for the one that is suitable for combination/oily skin type. Most of the times, a products that claims to be suitable for all skin types, does not work for me and leaves me with either a super oily skin in a few minutes or a super dry skin that feels stretchy.

When I received this product, I was kind of worried but even before my first use; packaging, consistency & fragrance impressed me. The plastic is not cheap at all and the squeezable packaging is always my favorite for being hygienic. If the cap is rightly screwed on, the product will not leak during the travel. The consistency is also the one I prefer as it is not too liquid-y so wastage of product is another thing I don't need to be worried about. And the lemon fragrance is my all time favorite. It feels fresh, just so fresh that you suddenly feel happy. Atleast I do! =D Also, even though it is a bit harsh but it does not irritate me as it really tones down after the wash.

It contains really tiny bits of beads that help to scrub the face and remove dirt, dead skin cells, oil and makeup without being harsh on skin at all. Please note that this product does not remove waterproof makeup.

Usage is pretty easy and since the formula is quite foamy, only a little product works great. However, I am not using it as the company recommends. It has a scrubbing action and even though it is mild, I use it twice or maximum thrice a week with a 45 seconds to one minute message.

After the wash, my skin feels smooth, soft and clean without being too dry and stretchy. But since I came from Pakistan after enjoying an ultra cold weather, my skin has gone a bit flaky and it has been acting weird. It becomes dry after I wash my face and I have to use moisturizer. After using this face wash plus scrub, I prefer to apply a moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated. I usually use this product in night time and when I wake up in the morning, my skin still looks clean and fresh. This also makes me feel that this product might make a dry skin way too dry, so use a good moisturizer afterwards.

I have been using it for about three weeks now and I have noticed that my facial skin has gone a bit lighter so I can say that longer use can help in tan reduction. But I am, from now onwards, going to use every face wash on my neck as well. This would be a bit uncomfortable but have a darker neck is not good. Oh and don't think that I have a white face now, but I can surely feel a tiny bit of difference as a month ago, both and neck and facial skin looked same.

This product also has a good value for money. It does what it claims to do and the quantity will last you for a long (lets say 2-3 months) if you use it twice or thrice a week.

Overall, I am in love with this product and I appreciate how Garnier is adding new and useful products in their range. If anyone from Garnier is reading this, I would suggest to make a bit stronger version of this formula to be used on dark areas of the body like knuckles, elbow, knees etc.
