Hi there! Most of the time I use Olay products on my face, but occasionally I pick up products from other brands for a change, like this Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash which I bought for half price at the drugstore.
This face wash is aimed at people with oily skin that’s prone to imperfections, and it claims to target these imperfections, to awaken skin and to tighten pores.
OK, I’ve got dry skin, so this product isn’t really aimed at me. However, my pores could do with a little tightening and I wouldn’t say no to my skin being awakened, so I’ve been using this face wash twice daily for just over a week now.
To be honest, I didn’t notice any difference at all. My pores are exactly as they were a week ago and my skin does not look any fresher or more awakened. I’m also not loving the scent; it’s a tad too sweet for my taste.
However, I think this face wash is really great at removing make-up, so I’ll be using it up for sure.
Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash is available as 200 ml. It’s usually £4.99, but at the moment it’s on special offer at the two big drugstores.

Hi there! I hope you enjoyed the bank holiday weekend. This is a bit of a funny post for me since I haven’t used the Garnier Skin Naturals Dark Spot Corrector on my face. However, I’ve used it on my husband’s face, so I think I’m qualified to review the product. 🙂
My husband has developed a few dark spots over the past year or two, and one of these dark spots – a big one on his cheek – has bugged him quite a lot. So I bought him the Dark Spot Corrector which claims to reduce the appearance of dark spots.
So did it work? I’d say it somewhat worked. I’ve applied the cream to his dark spots twice a day and most of them are significantly paler than a couple of months ago. They’re still present, but not as pronounced as they used to be.
I am not sure if I would recommend this product – I would say it depends on the result you want to achieve. However, there is one flaw that I need to point out. The Dark Spot Corrector does not have sunscreen. I know some people prefer an SPF-free face cream, but I think that a product that aims to fade skin discolourations – many of which are caused by exposure to sunlight – should contain some sort of sunscreen.
If you want to give Garnier Skin Naturals Dark Spot Corrector a try, 50ml set you back between £2.99 and £9.99. So keep your eyes peeled for the best offer. 😉
