Garnier Pure Active Blackhead Clearing Scrub

What follows is completely my own opinion and I bought this product with my own "hard earned" (lol) money and have been sent nothing! :)

So, after hearing of all the bloggers attending the Garnier event and receiving lots of goodies including the mentioned product I decided to check it out.

Yes I have dry skin but (nasty bit coming) I suffer from really bad blackheads on my cheeks, nose and chin :( and as of late they seem to be getting out of control so something has to be done...unfortunately this product isn't going to help me!

To be honest, since using this I have suffered badly from spots which I never usually get! As I sit here the original monster that was on my chin has subsided (slightly) but now has a new friend on the other side of my chin to join him. I have also found that it has dried the hell out of my skin :(

Therefore I personally feel that the jargon on the back from Garnier about wanting ... "instant effective action to help clear blackheads and fade marks..." is rubbish...for me! I do understand that the salicylic acid will dry out skin, but for me it is now drying out areas that I didn't even use it on and thus this is going to the back of the drawer/ in the bin :( which is disappointing as I did have high hopes for this!

How is anyone else using this getting on?

Speak soon xx

  1. I really like this scrub! I've only been using it for two days and my blackheads have def cleared, they've pretty much gone from my chin. I don't have dry skin so maybe that's why? It seems like quite a harsh wash
