Review of Garnier Pure Active face wash(Guest post by my dear friend Anjali Sengar)



Hello Readers!!!

This is my first post as a guest blogger (You can also visit my blog www.zigzacmania.com) on my sweet friend’s blog. In this post I am going to review a face wash by one of the leading beauty brand across the world. Yes! I am talking about Garnier Pure Active Real Neem Face Wash.


Product claims: A soap free, gentle face wash with real Neem extract and Tea Tree oil, this face wash by Garnier is great for everyday use. Neem has anti-bacterial properties and helps fight germs that cause pimples and acnes. It deeply cleanses and purifies the skin. Tea Tree oil too fights acnes and has many benefits for the skin. Pure Active face wash combines the best of both and gives you clean, pimple free and refreshing skin that will glow.

It has a nice fragrance and a runny consistency and feels very light on the face.

Ingredients: Water, coco-betane, peg-8, sodium laureth sulfate, peg-120 methyl glucose dioleate, sodium chloride, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, tea tree leaf oil, zinc gluconate, sodium glycolate, melia azadirachta leaf extract, tetrasodium edta, menthol, sodium benzoate, salicylic acid, cl 19140. Cl 42090, linalool, benzyl salicylate, fragrance (b48601/0).

Price: 15 gm @ 20 Rs 


Shelf life: 36 months or 3 years


Packaging: The product comes in a pretty white color tube with same colored cap. That cap is screw type that fits firm. This face wash is available in various variants. I prefer 15 gm tube which can be easily carried in your bag or clutch. Overall packaging is sturdy & travel friendly.


Texture/ Consistency: The gel is greenish is color & has a gel like consistency. But is bit runny in nature, so be careful while taking it out. It lathers very well so only small amount is sufficient for entire face. It is gentle in nature & doesn’t sting on skin or pimples.

Fragrance:
It has a very refreshing citrusy smell which is not at all overpowering or irritating. But people with extreme sensitive nose may raise their brow. He he he. However the smell stays for few minutes than fades away.


Action: I usually squeeze just a tiny bit of quantity, gently massage on damp face using your fingertips in a circular motion. On application this face wash cleans all the impurities & also clears up all the clogged pores. It fights against the harm done to your skin by pollution, bacteria and excess oil. With gradual regular use, it also brightens up the skin.

After application your skin will feel dry so definitely you have to moisturize your skin. Due to it’s drying effect I am avoiding it these days (Winter). But will again use it in summers.

Overall Rating: 4/5
