    I got this product for free from Garnier through Chick Advisor in exchange for my honest review. i have acne-prone, combination skin with very oily t-zone and dark spots so i was really looking forward to seeing the results unfortunately, this did not meet my needs as my skin got really dry after about 3 days of use morning and night. I scaled back to once a day, using only in the morning then to alternate mornings but had to revert to my previous regime after about 15 days. I didn't see any reduction as well even though i didn't use it that long but it didn't cause fresh breakouts. i am grateful for the free product review opportunity to try this, as i usually love Garnier products but sadly this didn't work for me.

    I received this product as part of the Product Review Club.

    PROS:
    Light in texture and scent
    No adverse reaction in terms of sensitivity or breakouts,
    SPF 15

    CONS:
    No change in appearance - if you have a little bit of dullness on your face this may work for you, but I have some hyperpigmentation and have not seen a difference in the past 2 weeks for me.
    Prefer a product with a higher SPF due to my sun sensitivity.

    I received this product free for review from chick advisor.
    My skin care regime is a detailed one for sure and with my cream it's the most important one this is the step that dose most of the work so it has to be the right cream for you skin type and it has to perfect those imperfections all day. Unfortunately this cream doesn't do anyone of these things. this cream itself is to light and watered down that the main components of the cream sit primarily on top while the skin just soaks up the water I'm sure this is good for some skin types but not many I believe this product is geared for younger ages 13-18 but not for the older 30plus as our skin types need much much more. As for the brightening part I just don't see it or even know if it actually does do this on any skin type. So if your looking for a cream that's gonna give you a lot and you in an older age group this product isn't for you. If your looking for teenage or younger then I would give it a try.

    I was excited. I had an opportunity to test this next product.
    Day 1: wash face, apply a dab of SkinActive Clearly Brighter. Goes on smooth, I like the feel
    Day 2: wash face, apply a smaller dab, just like the day before. Did I feel tingly?
    Day 3: hmmm , face is itchy, but no outward signs. Wash face and apply small dab of product. Face still itchy , to the point I felt like I needed to wash my face of this product. I stopped use of SkinActive Clearly Brighter at that time
    Day4 - Day 8: have not used this product ( or any other) since Day 3, but here on day 8,my face is still itchy and feels raw, like sandpaper. Almost like a 'burn'

    Was it a reaction with the soap I use? Was it that I am just over sensitive to this product? Either way, it will not make its way into my skin routine again.

    I received this as part of the Product Review Club Offer: Garnier SkinActive

    I have to say i really am still waiting for the benefit of this moisturizer to surface. Added to the fact , the first time I applied it , I noticed a strong citrus like smell ....it was a bit too much , secondly it stung my eyes for some weird reason.

    I am not impressed at all for now.

    I received the Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Moisturizer to try as part of the Chick Advisor Product Review Club. Sadly, I was disappointed with this one. I really wanted to like it, as it went on smooth and initially gave a nice brighter tone to my face, but the feeling of tightness on my face as the day went on was uncomfortable. The concept of the brightening and smoothing was really intriguing to me but not worth the drying out it caused to my face. I tried to reapply in the afternoon to see if that helped, and it really didn't change much.

    Perhaps, this moisturizer would work better on a different skin type, but it definately did not work for me. I would prefer another brightening cream to this one, onto the next!

    Days 1 through 4, worked well as per Garnier's claims it brightened and smoothed my face's skin. Day 5, my face went puffy and my eyes went red. I stopped using it immediately. I think I possibly have an allergy or intolerance to one or more of the active ingredients.
