Good Bye Big Pores, Hello Flawless Skin [Beauty Tips & Event Report]

A few weeks ago, I was invited by Garnier to attend their Sakura White Product Launching. I believe most of you must know Garnier already; it’s a well known skincare Brand from Loreal Group.

Realizing the great needs for skincare solution for big pores and dull skin issues; Garnier launched their latest Sakura White Skincare Series as the answer. So, what makes it different from other products out there?


The launching was being held at Ritz Carlton Hotel Pacific Place, Jakarta Selatan. Welcomed by Xeli from Beyond Communication, I was given a Garnier Sakura White Card Games to complete. On the card, there were two pictures of Pevita Pearce – the Garnier Brand Ambassador – and two Sakura White products. In short, they asked all the guests to guessed and marked the difference. One lucky winner would get an opportunity to have an exclusive 15 minutes interview with Pevita Pearce.

Inside the room was decorated to match the Sakura White Pinkish Radiance theme. The event was opened by a welcome by the MC, who challenged the audience to take a selfie with her and post in on Instagram, with #nofilter. The audience was resistant, because none ever took a selfi and post it with #nofilter, though at the end, one guest accepted the challenge.

After the challenged, we were entertained by a Sakura White Dance show. The dance was especially choreograph to tell a story of two girls who felt inferior because they had skin issues; then, a friend came to share her beauty secret to flawless skin which led to the premier show of Garnier Sakura White TV ads which was going on air 1st March 2016. The dance was closed by Pevita Pearce revealed herself as one of the dancer. The audience instantly went wild by that revelation. It was truly a big surprise.


Joined by the Garnier Brand Manager and a dermatologist – Dr. Gloria Novelita, SpKK, they explained why the decided to launch New Garnier Sakura White with tagline #comecloser. In short, Garnier found from a research that many Indonesian women dream of a bright and flawless skin; nevertheless, many do not know neither understand how to get it. Hunting here and there, they search and try many products and brand. Some may have found the perfect match for their skin while others, unfortunately, still need to continue their search. That’s why, in the opening, the MC challenged us to take a selfie and post it with #nofilter.

The Issue

According to Dr. Gloria Novelita, SpKK, a dermatologist, dull skin and other skin issues are caused by big pores. There are two possible issues that cause Big Pores. First, people with oily skin tends to have large pores; it is due to the production of excess oil which blocks the pores and collects dead skin cells and dirt within the pores, which then expands them and makes them appear larger than they regularly are. Second cause is the skin exposure to harsh sunlight, cold, and wind, which can make the appearance of large pores even worse.

To Answer this issue, Garnier launched Garnier Sakura White Set as the answer. It is a serum based skincare. Why Serum ? It’s because Serums are generally water-based liquid or gel products that feel lightweight on the skin. Further, Serums leave out occlusive, or airtight, moisturizing ingredients such as petrolatum or mineral oil that keep water from evaporating ( Levit, 2016 WEBMD).Hence, Serum is easier and more quickly to be absorbed by the skin.


The Products

There are 6 products available to get from this Garnier Sakura White line:

  • Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Radiance & Smooth Pores – Whitening Serum Cream UVA/UVB
  • Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Radiance Ultimate Serum
  • Garnier Sakura White Pinkis Radiance Gentle Foam
  • Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Raidance Intensive Whitening Mask (with Sakura Extract)
  • Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Radiance & Smooth Pores SPF 21 PA+++ Serum Cream (Day)
  • Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Radiance Sleeping Essence (Night)


You may wonder, what’s the difference with the first Sakura White series? The difference is the New Garnier  Sakura White products contains Sakura Extract + Serum, and the Day products are added with SPF 21 PA+++ to protect our skin from the harmful UV rays.

During the Q&A, it was explained that the new Garnier Sakura White products, equipped with Pore Smoothing Serum, Japanese Sakura Essence and Whitening Vitamin (B3 & CG), are designed to help our skin looking more pinkish radiant and pores are visibly smaller in one month.

I am super excited to try these products. So, stay tuned for my update <3 Meanwhile, check out and follow my Social Media for updates <3
