Today I have a skin care product review for you. I have been using the Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 Cleanser for the past two months and feel like it's long enough to give you an honest review.
Some time ago I was looking for a new cleanser to remove my makeup at night and to freshen up my face. I had the feeling my previous one was breaking me out, so I wanted to try a new one!
The Pure Active 3 in 1 Wash/Scrub/Mask drew my attention in the drugstore. I liked the packaging and the fact that it was a product that could serve for multiple purposes.
What the description says:
"Garnier Pure 3 in 1 Wash/Scrub/Mask simplifies your skin care routine by delivering 3 benefits in one product to help deeply purify, eliminate impurities and mattify the surface of your skin.
Enriched with clay and mineral zinc, Garnier Pure 3 in 1 Wash/Scrub/Mask's anti-bacterial formula works as a daily cleanser, scrub and mattifying mask to visibly reduce impurities and help prevent their reappearance.
As a wash: enriched with Zinc known for its purifying properties, it purifies the skin and eliminates impurities, helping to protect against imperfections even before they appears.
As a scrub: it contains Pumice, a natural exfoliating agent, to eliminate dead skin cells and unclog pores.
As a mask: enriched with White Clay known for its smoothing and absorbing properties, it reduces shine.
A triple mineral power for anti-imperfection action."
The creme is white of color and has lots of little blue sandy dots in it. It's very thick of consistency and has a nice fresh smell to it.
Here is how I applied it as a wash. You first need to wet your face and then rub it in circular motions. It's important to rinse with plenty of lukewarm water. The product it pretty opaque so it will leave white marks when you don't use enough water. I usually use the wash under the shower, so I don't get my bathroom completely wet! After using the cleanser I use a moisturizer to nurture my skin.
What I like about the Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 Wash/Scrub/Mask:
The smell is fresh and minty.
The texture is very pleasant. As I said before it's a thick cream, so you get the feeling it really cleanses your skin and removes leftover makeup and dirt. It's also easy to apply doesn't give you the feeling you're scrubbing your face open.
My face feels soft as a baby's bottom after using it. The creme contains salicylic acid which works wonders for oily skin with imperfections and acne. And the minerals really mattifiy the shine on my forehead and nose.
What I don't like about the Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 Wash/Scrub/Mask:
I don't like to use this product as a mask. When I leave it on for too long, it starts to sting and my face feels like I've rubbed Vapo Rub on it. I've tried it once, but I've decided to only use this product as a wash and scrub.
Would I buy it again?
Yes, I definitely would. This creme has really cleared up my skin of imperfections and leaves me with a soft mattified result every day. I have been using it every evening in the shower for the past two months and I will keep on using it! One tube of 150 ml lasts me for about five weeks.
You can buy the Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 Wash/Scrub/Mask at the drugstore or online for €6,95.
