11/16/2015 Unknown 0 Comments

It's spring here in Australia with Christmas just around the corner and that means it's the perfect time of the year to go out and shop for yourself and your loved ones. I love to go to the malls and look for some limited edition holiday collections and discount deals etc. We all love to do that..don't we ?
And..Priceline is one of my favorite stores to get my hands on some cool stuff. I start my Christmas shopping quite early so that I have enough time to pick the best ones out of all the available deals. Last month, I was just checking skincare aisle at Priceline to find some facial oils which I wanted to try and got my eyes on this tiny little tube of "Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 Wash Scrub Mask" which was on special and costed me $4 for 50ml.

This got me so excited that I just wanted to buy and try it...I mean who doesn't love multi-tasking products. These are great when you want to save your time, money and space. And after becoming a mommy, I am always in search of things which can save my time and efforts both...and that's fairly genuine to yearn for. Right ?
So, I bought this 3 in 1 product and started using this. It's been nearly a month now and I am all set to articulate my thoughts about it. Read on to know whether it replaced my face wash, scrub and mask or not.

 Before I had started using it, I used to doubt that how would it work as a cleanser and a scrub both because if it would be a good scrub then it might not be a cleanser gentle enough for daily use and if it would be a good cleanser then it might not be as effective as a scrub.
And when I finally gave it a try I found that the scrubbing particles present in this 3 in 1 product are very small sized and rounded and feel very gentle on the skin and thus as a cleanser, it is really gentle to be used on daily basis. It does exfoliate also when you want to use it as a cleanser because of the pumice beads present in it so I don't use it around my eyes but for rest of my face it works in a gentle way. I use it at night time before going to sleep so that it can help me get rid of all the dirt, grime and oil that gets accumulated on my face throughout the day...just spread it evenly on my face starting from the T-zone which is oilier than rest of my face and massage it for a minute and wash it off. It leaves my skin super soft, smooth, oil-free, clear, brighter and even toned. You got to believe me..It's that good. Gets full points as a cleanser.

I then tested it's efficacy as a scrub and to be is not as efficient as a scrub is supposed to be. It does unclog pores with regular use and makes the skin smooth and brighter by helping in getting rid of the dead skin flakes but for thorough removal of stubborn blackheads and dry skin, I have to use a more efficient scrub separately, twice a week. I feel that it does not have enough scrubbing particles to work on stubborn black-heads. For gentle scrubbing, it works perfectly though.

It works as a mask also and I tried it that way too and was really impressed to see that it did make my skin clearer, tighter and free from excess oil without drying it out. My C-zone is towards dry side and generally masks and face packs make it even drier but Garnier 3 in 1 did not. Here, I would like to mention that I start applying it from my T-zone so that it stays for more time on the oily part of my face...let it stay for around 10 minutes and wash it off. It works perfectly for me as a mask and I don't use any other mask at the moment except this one. I use it 2-3 times a week depending upon how hot and humid the weather is. Due to it's thick consistency, the mask tends to dry pretty soon and it takes some effort to wash it off completely because otherwise it tends to leave some white streaks here and there on my face. Hence I like to use it in shower so that it is less messy to take it off and my face gets completely clean and clear.

 It smells like clay and menthol which feels really refreshing. My face remains oil free for nearly 6-7 hours post using this. All I need after this is a toner and a moisturizer and my skin feels perfect. I have noticed a significant improvement in my blackheads have reduced to almost half of what I had before and I have not experienced any breakouts after I started using this.
The gist.. it is a great product for oily and normal skin which is prone to acne/breakouts. It's very effective in treating and preventing blackheads and pimples. It gets me rid of the excess oil without being harsh and drying and is gentle to be used on daily basis. It does what it claims and is a perfect match for my skin. Being a multi-tasking product, it definitely is a money saver, space saver and time saver and ideal for busy moms like me. I highly recommend it and will repurchase once I finish this one. A little bit of it goes a long way.
