My teenage nieces managed to keep blemishes under control using Garnier products. I haven’t really tried Garnier skin care line despite the raves because with my problematic skin, I’ve lost hope in anything that promises solution to acne.
I’ve mentioned time and again how zits can be a self-esteem crusher, especially for teens whose hormones are going berserk. But there has to be some way to get them out of this rut. School opening is just around the corner, making them prone again to stress and breakouts.
It’s just timely that I got hold of 2 new Garnier products to try: the Garnier Pure Active Multi-action Scrub and Garnier Pure Active Anti-imperfections Cooling Roll-On when I have an impending pimple on the nose, yet again. I’ve always thought my skin needed some expensive out of this world secret potion to calm my blemishes down, and not some drugstore brand found ubiquitously at grocery stalls like Garnier. With the testimonials from my nieces, it ought to be worth a try for easing the burden of blackheads, acne, and ugly marks left.
Will these bring back my hope on acne-busting products?
Garnier is a leading European natural beauty brand that uses whenever possible carefully extracted nature-based active ingredients. It boasts of the proven efficacy of its products. Pure active line helps target imperfections and marks.

Garnier Pure Active Anti-imperfections Cooing Roll-On
A concentrated formula containing purifiying salicylcic acid and HerbaRepair that reduce redness in 5 hours and imperfections and marks in 2 days. Its fresh non greasy formula of salicylic acid quickly dries out imperfections instantly. HerbaRepair, known for its regenerating and repairing properties, helps to improve skin, minimize redness and fade out marks.
How to use: Apply directly onto and around imperfections and their marks as soon as they appear. Continue applications until they have cleared. Avoid eye area.
I will be putting these 2 to the test and let you know how it turns out. If these stay true to their promises, I should be seeing improvement in a week’s time. Review will be up by then.
