I am already a big fan of Garnier Pure Active when it comes to my face care (and Garnier Hair Products as well!).
Even though I have a T-zone my skin is mostly oily between May and July which makes it prone to pimples and blackheads. Pure Active products have been my ultimate Go To Product for Face support.
The new product line comprises of a 3 in 1, Scrub and Gel Wash variations to help keep your skin cleansed and free from acne marks and other imperfections. It would have unfair to try out all three immediately so I divided the testing into three days. I obviously wanted to try the Morning cleanse and the after work cleanse (and the Mask as well).
So first I tried the Exfoliating Daily Face Gel Wash. The Gel wash looked like a liquidy gel with speckles of Blue exfoliating beads. Its smelled a bit like medicine, slightly...ummmm....pungent but not in a disturbing way. When I used it it didn't lather much but was easily washed away leaving the skin clean. the scrub beads were not harsh on the skin but I would have liked slight grainy-ness as my skin requires occasional scrubbing and polishing.
The Gel wash is available for PKR 349/- only.
The Anti-Blackhead Scrub is available for PKR 399/-
On the third day, which happened to be a Sunday, I tried the 3-1. the product claims: "The 3 in 1 works as a deep wash purifier, a scrub which unclogs pores and a mask that mattifies the skin".
This time the scrub was like a cream and I applied it like a mask. It smelled like mint to and the tingly feeling was more intense, yet still pleasant. I enjoyed the tingling more cause it felt like an ice pack which is a bonus in the recent hot weather. The fresh minty feeling stayed after i washed my face. the skin felt tighter and breathable. Tried this one last but it ended up being my favorite of the three :)
The 3 in 1 is available for PKR 449/-
(Sorry for the shoddy shot but I couldn't keep the runny gel wash in place :p) Anyways the overall verdict is that the product definitely stands up to mark, as always, when it comes to clean skin. It has always helped me in keeping acne at bay but I am also looking forward to using it to get rid of Acne marks as well :)
Perfectly suited for those who seek to limit the onset of acne and keep their skin luscious and blemish free. I would say there is no limitation of gender either ;) The new Pure Active range is now available at all leading stores across the country.
