Garnier Pure Active

Hi Darlins

A while ago I was approached by Garnier to try out a new range of skincare called Pure Active, you may have seen the recent TV ads.
I have not used a Garnier product for many years, not for any particular reason as they were always my * go to* product as a young Mum, but for some reason seem to get overlooked nowadays, so I was keen to try out this new range although, if I am honest I 100% couldn't see it being for me, as from what I can gather it is aimed at a more youthful market, not one to be deterred, you know me, I will try anything if I like the look of it. Garnier and I have re kindled our relationship :)

Whenever I see a 3 step system it always reminds me of our old Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise days, well in fact this is the same but with much more advanced products, than fragrance water that was said to remove the last traces of cleanser, this whole range is designed for Sensitive skin with blemishes, whilst I do have sensitive skin when it comes to soap products, my blemish days are thankfully over.

I started out with the Pure Active Sensitive Anti Blemish Soap-Free Gel Wash. 150ml
A clear gel that you apply to a wet face, the gel emulsifies and turns into what can only be described as a luxurious skin cream, whilst it has a fresh almost soap clean smell there was absolutely no irritation, tightness of the skin or redness of any kind, rinsed away with warm water and a flannel this left my face feel uber clean and soft.

Followed by Pure Active Sensitive Anti-Blemish Clarifying Tonic. 200ml
This to me really is the star of the collection, it's like nothing I have ever used before, a gel toner that is applied with a cotton pad after cleansing, it dries leaving your skin feel almost primed with a matte finish, again no tightness, just soft skin. I personally loved this, it felt fresh, easy to use and with a fragrance that reminded me of Cucumber and Mint, although the active ingredients are Salicylic Acid and Witch Hazel.

The final step was Pure Active Sensitive Anti-Blemish Soothing Moisturiser. 50ml

This moisturiser I found to be lightweight easily absorbed with no greasy residue, again it left a matte finish to the skin, which formed the perfect base for foundation or could easily be left make up free for a non shiny complexion.

In fairness to this product, I am not sure I was the ideal candidate to test it out on, so I roped in my 20 something Grandaughter who does have some blemish problems, she loves it, it calmed the redness of any angry looking patches, wasn't slightly irritating and did the thing she desires the most mattifies the skin for a non greasy look. I am going to be encouraging my 14 year old Grandaughter to get on board with these products as well, as she is at the I have found make up age and I think they are fabulous at applying but not so great in the cleansing area, and best to start a routine early before the blemishes hit !
