Skin brightening is the latest thing to hit the beauty market. It's nothing new in the east, where Asian women high snowy white skin in high regard, but Westerners have only recently cottoned on.

Garnier's latest Clean Detox range plays on the brightening fad, and the Gentle Brightening Scrub uses pure lemon essence and exfoliating micro beads to slough away dead skin and refresh the complexion.

While I have no doubt that the product improves my skin's appearance - a gentle tingling from the citric acid made that apparent - it also made my skin feel squeaky clean.

Scrubbing your skin until it's acutally squeaky means that you've stripped it of all its natural protecting and hydrating oils. As fantastically fresh as my skin looked post-scrub, I was concerned that I had just ripped all the goodness out of it - something that can be damaging long term.

Despite the fact that the product states its for all skin types, I would recommend you only use it if you have oily skin.
