Hello! And Welcome to my Beauty Segment where I give my honest thoughts on skincare products. Welcome to a new skincare review on my blog!.
Today I will be giving my opinions on the Garnier Pure Active products I picked up recently about a month ago. I have used them extensively and now it’s time to let out my feelings regarding these products.
The Pure Active Intensive Anti-Blackhead Charcoal Gel Wash,
The Pure Active 3 in 1 Charcoal Mask (Gel, Scrub And Mask) And
The Pure Active Pore Purifying Lotion.
First, THE PURE ACTIVE INTENSIVE ANTI-BLACKHEAD CHARCOAL GEL WASH,
PACKAGING AND PRICE: This product comes in a black charcoal inspired tube bottle with a blue pump on top. It contains 200ml capacity volume of gel wash and it retailed for 86RPH (4USD)
SCENT, It has a minty fresh scent, just like butter mint candy (if you know, you know babe😁) Lovely scent.
MAIN COMPONENTS: Charcoal, Blueberry Extract And Salicylic Acid.
GUARANTEES: It promises to unclog pores, deep cleanse the oily-spot prone skin and reduce the appearance of blackheads.
CONSISTENCY:It has a liquid consistency that appears black initially but later foams white on application
MY THOUGHTS: I thought this product was good to use. Firstly, it had a lovely minty scent and also it had quite a few impressive.
A little pump of this gel goes a long well as it foams really well and quickly (I use this twice a day for better results).
After using for quite a while (about two weeks) I noticed a difference with my acne, my face was smoother and random pimples rarely popped up.
Also my pores looked cleansed, better and revitalized, just like my skin was also brightened and little tightened (I love a good tightening skin product.
This product for it’s price, it’s a good acquisition that will always be a staple in my skincare collection.
I recommend this facial gel to everyone especially those with oily- acne prone skin.
RATING, 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Second, THE PURE ACTIVE 3 IN 1 CHARCOAL MASK,
PACKAGING AND PRICE: It comes in a black, white and red colored tube with a blue top cover. It contains 150ml capacity volume of product and it retailed for 104RPH (5USD)
MAIN COMPONENTS: Charcoal, Blueberry Extract and Salicylic Acid.
GUARANTEES: It promises to purify the skin, intensely cleanse and remove impurities, Clear black spots, visibly reduce appearance of resistant blackheads and neutralize shine.
CONSISTENCY: It has a fine texture, as the grits are not harsh at all. It’s a moderately thick gel that spreads nicely across the face.
MY THOUGHTS: First, this is a multi-functional product that can be used as a gel, scrub and mask. This is good and economical in the sense that it saves money, It gives the entire wash, scrub and mask experience in a bottle.
A little squeeze also goes a long way and I applied twice daily (it worked well for my skin).
Though this product had no effects on my dark spots, I still think it’s pretty good because it did help control my acne and it clears blackheads well. Absolutely smooth, clear and non greasy face. Good!
I recommend this product to everyone especially to oily acne prone skins. I will be repurchasing as it’s a staple in my skincare collection. Even my mother, spoke greatly of this product.
RATING, 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Lastly, THE PURE ACTIVE PORE PURIFYING LOTION,
PACKAGING AND PRICE: It comes in a light blue bottle with a white cover top. It contains 200ml capacity volume of product and it retailed for 86RPH (4USD)
SCENT: It has a mild alcoholic smell, not my favorite though. It also has an underlying fragrance of grass or some kind of plant.
MAIN COMPONENTS: Salicylic Acid and Zinc
GUARANTEES: It promises to mattify the skin and tighten the pores.
MY THOUGHTS: The lotion was okay, quite impressive even though I didn’t really fancy the smell.
After I cleansed and scrubbed my face, I applied this lotion on a cotton bud and wipe my entire face with it.
Once again, not the most desirable scent but my skin was cleansed and all remaining dirt or oil was wiped away. It also dries very fast, which is good because I don’t have to way for long if I want to put on make up.
This product however stings the eyes due to its alcohol contents, so do not apply to sensitive areas.
I do also recommend this product.
RATING, 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Altogether, I really liked using these Garnier products, They were a really good run for my money and I had a pleasant experience with them. I shall be picking up more Garnier products to use and review in the future.
I will be giving an Overall Rating of 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
