Garnier has some of the best drugstore products! They are always effective and budget friendly plus it’s almost always on offer in Superdrug.
I never had an issue with breakouts or spots up until this year (a bit late seeing that I am 22?!) where I have breakouts a bit more than usual. Since then I have been on the hunt to try some skincare products tailored to this issue and of course I had to pick up some Garnier stuff! Their Pure Active range has been formulated for oily skin which is prone to imperfections. Now I don’t have the oiliest skin of them all, infact I have normal to combo skin with slightly oily t-zones (who doesn’t) but I wanted to buy these products because 1. I trust and love Garnier products 2. I needed something with salicylic acid as from my research, it can help to reduce breakouts.
I got the
PureActive Anti-Blackhead Deep Pore Wash 150ml
PureActive Pore Purifying Toner 200ml
Both enriched with salicylic acid and zinc to help unclog and tighten pores and fight blemishes
I have been using these two for a couple of weeks now- I would say 6 weeks or so and here will be my honest review
I love the wash. It had tiny exfoliating beads which feels like a mild scrub when you are using it. A little suds up quite easily and it really does make difference in your pores. It cleans and unclogs pores so well especially when paired with a face pad. It also reduces whiteheads which I get a lot very well. It can leave your skin a tad bit dry but I guess it’s because it’s for oily skin.
The toner is excellent too, however it has a very strong smell (the one thing I don’t like) and it’s very strong. It’s not drying on my skin and it tastes bitter lol.
Both these products have really improved my skin. I rarely breakout now and my pores have dramatically reduced- now I wished I took a before and after picture! I recommend both these products very effective and really good value for money!
PureActive Anti-Blackhead Deep Pore Wash 150ml, £2.65
PureActive Pore Purifying Toner 200ml, £3.69
Both are available on Superdrug
What are your clear skin secrets?
Water, water and more water!
