Review: Garnier Pure Active Exfo-Brusher


I seriously have a Love/Hate relationship with this cleanser.

Why I love it?

Because it helps clear my pimples faster than when I don’t use it, slightly lightens up some scars and makes my skin so soft.
Especially around my nose, it helps with those annoying blackheads. I think the silicone brush head helps with that and i love it, it so soft and massages my face wonderfully!

Why I hate it?

Because it dries my skin out to the point that I’m left with dry, flaky patches! And they are so annoying! Makeup can’t even hide them and they take over a week to get rid of.

I think I might have found a way to balance it out. I don’t use it every day. Thrice a week works well for me. And when I do use it I make sure to moisturise my skin well afterwards.


If I’m not mistaken, it’s the same formula as the normal Garnier pure active face wash that comes in the pump bottle.
This is just in a different bottle and what stands out and really makes a difference is the soft silicone bristles that gently exfoliate your skin.

On the bottle, this is what the label claims:
•Intensive deep cleansibg helps remove dead skin cells and fade marks.
•Works to unglog impurities from pores and visibly reduces surface sebum levels.

Contains 2% salicylic acid and Herbasoothe, which is derived from blueberry, selected for its caring and soothing properties.

I agree with all of the above. And excellent product in my opinion and I will continue using it, with caution obviously so as to prevent getting more dry patches.

** If this product has worked for me, it doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for you, if you do try it and it doesn’t work, we will not be held responsible. Everyones skin type is different and react differently to all products.

leave a comment if you’ve tried this and wether you love or hate it and why?

  1. I use this wash during summer months when my skin gets oily and I love it.
    There’s a trick though. In winter I refill it with the clinique step 3 cleanser which is less harsh. That way I get the use the bristles all year round.
