Garnier Pure Active

Garnier's Pure Active Range is said to help fight spots and fade marks. Superdrug had a 2 for £5 offer on Garniers skin care range a couple months ago so I decided to get the make-up remover purifying gel and intensive charcoal scrub (each £4.99, so at the time I got one for 1p. Bargain!)

The make-up remover works quite well at removing all my make-up apart from the mascara needed a bit of a extra scrub. The scent reminds me of beauty college when we used dermologica products and so does the texture. I wouldn't not buy this product again but I wouldn't rush out to get it in a hurry. 

Now the charcoal scrub, that's a little different as it's something I would repurchase. It says you can use this daily but I've been using it 3-4 times a week over the last couple of months and I must say it has improved my skin. Since recently coming off my contraceptive pill I've been getting spots on my chin but this seems to help clear them up, although not prevent them. They don't magically disappear but my skin does feel nice and clean afterwards. The scrub foams up little and is easily washed off after you've had a good scrub. The product is not too harsh on skin and doesn't dry my skin out at all or leave it feeling tight.

It's now officially out with the make-up wipes and mission on to get a good skin care regime going. What are your favourite skin care products?
