REVIEW | Instant Glowing Skin with Garnier Sakura White Whitening Serum Cream SPF21


I believe that everyone adores brighter and glowing skin. Did you know that you can achieve this skin goal by using a tone up cream? Your dream skin wish comes true just in seconds! Sounds promising right? But for darker skin tone, they try to avoid this kind of cream because most if it give freaking white cast on their skin and end up looking ashy. Fret not, I found an affordable cream that can give moisturizing effect + tone up cream + UV protection. Introducing Garnier Sakura White Whitening Serum Cream!

The Garnier Sakura White is infused with the extract of Sakura, a delicate flower from Japan that blossom for only 7-14 days a year. For this new range, Garnier has carefully selected the Sakura Extract strictly from Shikoku & Okayama in Japan, where the warm weather and fertile soil provide the best conditions for Sakura blossoming. The rare nature of the Sakura makes it a potent ingredient that is the secret to pinkish radiant skin that reflects youth and liveliness!




It comes in a sturdy glass jar that contain 50ml of product. I love the design of packaging because it is cute and pink. The only downside of jar packaging are hygienic issue and not travel friendly.




I am very fond of the texture. It is creamy but not heavy as I don’t feel any greasiness or suffocate after using this even in hot daytime. It has pale pink tint but not very visible even after spreading on skin.


It is hard to capture the pale pink tint with camera.

I always dig out this product whenever I need a quick touch or I just wandering around in my house. With SPF 30, it gives moderate protection against UV rays. Anyhow when stepping outside the house, I don’t depend on this cream as sunscreen because SPF30 is inadequate. This cream works best under makeup as primer. It provides a smooth canvas before applying foundation. My foundation finish is smooth and not patchy. Can people with darker skin tone can use this tone up cream? YES! I tested on darker skin tone, amazingly this cream settle down beautifully on her skin without looking ashy. This cream give moisturizing effect and make my skin feel so smooth without tacky and sticky. But after few hours, my combination skin start to be a little bit oily especially on oilier side.  According to GARNIER, this cream can give radiant and pinkish complexion in just 4weeks. As I didn’t consistently use this cream, I don’t see any difference on my complexion.



I love this cream so much because it give my skin instant brightening effect. I found out that Garnier has come out with tube packaging. I will definitely adding that in my shopping cart as it will be so much handy for travel.
