Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Radiance Essence Lotion Review

When I first started looking at skincare, I was really curious about the product namee s s e n c e. Confused whether he entered into a toner or serum? But how come the name is different.. In the end, I haven't dared to try it, still focusing on basic skincare.

Not long after, Garnier released a new product, the Sakura White series. One of the products is essence. At that time, there were a lot of beauty influencers who reviewed and said they liked the essence. After that, when I checked shopee, it turned out to be discounted, just brushed it off because I was curious.

Essence is actually a skincare product that functions to moisturize the skin so that the next skincare step is easier to absorb. It's almost the same as a hydrating toner. But when it comes to hydrating toner, it's usually just to moisturize, while essence has other functions. For example, like this product, which claims not only to moisturize.

This product is packaged in a clear plastic bottle, but it doesn't look cheap. This product contains 120 ml, which is quite a lot in my opinion because every skincare I only use 3-4 drops and actually I don't just use this regularly. Oh yes, the packaging hole is small so it doesn't spill over.

  • Instantly moisturizes skin
  • Makes skin feel smooth
  • Brighter, bouncy, and glowing skin

This product contains glycerin which is a humectant. Because it contains humectants, this product can moisturize the skin. This product also contains niacinamide which can moisturize, disguise dark spots, and control oil production. Oh yeah, this product contains alcohol, but it doesn't really bother my skin. For those whose skin is sensitive to alcohol, maybe you can avoid it. This product is also halal certified, so it's Muslim friendly, right :)

Texture & Scent

This product has a gel texture but is liquid. So it's not as thick as a gel but also not as runny as a liquid. The color of the product is light pink. As for the scent, it smells like cherry blossoms. It's great to make it fresh.

My Thoughts
I like this product because when you use it, it instantly moisturizes your skin. The smell is also really good, so it gives a pleasant sensation every time you apply it to your face, hihi.

  • Instantly moisturizes skin - yes ! like i said before ;)
  • Makes skin feel smooth - no, I feel the texture is the same
  • Brighter, bouncy, and glowing skin - skin feels more bouncy, yes, but it doesn't look bright and glowing. Even if my skin becomes brighter & glowing, I think it's the result of other skincare like serum or moisturizer. But maybe the role of this essence is to help skincare after it absorb more maximally.
I don't think you should really try this product. If you really have a hydrating toner, I think that's enough, you don't need to add this product. If you want to try other essences, go ahead because the effect may be different from this product. If you are looking for a hydrating toner and are confused, this product can be an option because I think its function is almost the same...

Oh yeah, I think the Garnier Sakura White series will be more visible and complement each other if you use a series. But it's not cool if I use one set, I'm always curious about different products and can't just use one set from a certain brand. How about you?
