Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub.
This product contains salicylic acid, vitamin C, grapefruit and pomegranate extracts, and it’s aimed at people with oily / problem skin. It promises to unclog and tighten pores and to give skin a radiant glow.
You’re supposed to use the product as a daily face wash. Since I use a konjac or cellulose sponge (+ face wash) to cleanse my face in the shower every morning, I used this product the same way – and I was impressed!
This gel scrub is wonderful. It lathers up very well (it’s like it was designed to be used with a konjac sponge), it feels powerful but not harsh, and it really seems to “sweep up” grease and grime to give my pores a deep cleanse.
I also think that this gel scrub has skin brightening properties. Every time I use this gel scrub, my skin tone looks incredibly even and, yes, radiant. It’s awesome!
Since I have dry and moody skin, I can’t use this gel scrub every day. At the moment I’m using it once or twice a week which seems to work out perfectly.
Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub is available as 150ml for £4.99. I paid £3.33 (special offer).

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.
