Garnier PureActive 3 in 1 - Review
I have been using this scrub for a few weeks now so I thought I would tell you what I think about it.
First thing first. This is a product that you can use both as a face wash, scrub and mask. It says on it that it's made for Oily skin with imperfections.
When you use it as a wash or scrub you simply just wet your face with water, massage the product all over your face excep for close to your eyes then wash it off with water and dry your face with a towel.
When you use it as a mask you apply it all over your face except for around your eyes. It says on the tube that you should leave it for three minutes but I usually leave it for for about 5-10 minutes because it doesn't have time do dry completly if I only have it on for three minutes. When it has dried you wash it off with water.
So now on to what I think about it. As a wash/scrub I think it feels nice on the skin when I use it and my skin feels really nice when I wash it of. I didn't really notice any differenc on my skin between this scrub and the one I used before which was the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit scrub which I also liked. My skin still looks nice and feels nice so I would say it's a pretty good scrub that cleans your skin and leaves it feeling fresh and nice. I use it to wash/scrub my face every night.
As a mask I'm quite impressed by it. I only use it as a mask if I have any spots since it's for oily skin and I would say my skin is normal right now so I don't want to use it as a mask too often. When I do have a few spots I use this mask once a week and leave it on for 5-10 minutes as I said before. The day after or two days after I can usually see a huge differenc on my spot. They are almost gone and scars and red spots I have from old blemishes don't look as prominent which is one thing that I love about this mask. I have a few red marks on my cheek from blemishes I had a couple months ago and they never seemed to fade, but the first time I used this product as a mask I could see that they weren't as red the day after I used the mask.
As a summary of my opinion on this product I would say that it's a good scrub and a brilliant mask if you have any spots. It's supposed to be for oily skin but my skin is pretty normal now and it still works great for my so I would say you probably can use it if you have normal, combination or oily skin. I don't know how it would work for someone with dry skin but I'm guessing this wouldn't be for you.
I definitely recommend this to anyone that have or sometimes gets spots or blemishes and are looking for a good affordable scrub or mask.
