Garnier Green Tea Leaves Purifying Botanical Gel Wash Review


So I posted about the New Garnier Skin Active Collection last month, check out that post here. What’s interesting about the new Garnier range is that, 96% of their ingredient are from a natural source. In today’s post, I will be reviewing one of the new products in the Green Tea Leaves Collection part of the new range

Green Tea Leaves Collection

The Green Tea collection is for Oily &Combinationn skin types. Like other products in the collection, it’s free from parabens, artificial colorants and silicones. I have been using the Purifying Botanical Gel Wash for a few weeks now and I can now bring my thoughts on it.

The Purifying Botanical Gel Wash is enriched with Green Tea Extract known for its purifying properties. Garnier claims the gel will remove excess sebum, impurities and pollution for clean and purified looking skin. Use once a day


The Purifying Botanical Gel Wash replaced my Dermalogica Special Gel Wash in my skincare routine. I use the gel wash in combination with SPS face brush.

The gel wash smells fresh & pleasant and a small amount suds up quickly. The gel is effective at cleansing and I feel my skin is clean. I feel as though my skin is a little drier and feels tight after use with no moisturiser on in my normal areas. I have normal to combination skin but I tend to lend towards to the normal side of the scale. My T zone is oily but not excessively oily. I feel like the gel does a good job balancing my oily areas and after use those areas feel normal but my normal areas feel slightly drier.

Verdict– The Purifying Botanical Gel Wash is suitable for more oiler skin types than combination skin types in my opinion. For combination skin which is more normal than oily, you may find this wash slightly drying like I did. For oily skin types, the gel wash will be a perfect budget friendly match for you.

I do like the gel wash and I will be reaching for it more in the summer as my tzone gets slightly more oiler in the warmer months. The wash minimizes my pores and overall mattifies my skin.

I also like how Garnier tells you where and what each ingredient is/from.

I am still testing the other products in this range so make sure you come back from more.

Garnier Skin Active Green Tea Leaves Purifying Botanical Gel Wash is £3.49 at Boots

This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?)
