Garnier Pure Active Pore Unclogging Wash Review

Hola ladies! Today I am going to review another face wash which is a recent add to my stash. It is the Garnier Pure Active Pore Unclogging Wash. I have been using it twice daily for almost a week and I thought of sharing my views on the product.

PRICE: Rs.79



"The new Garnier Pure Active pore unclogging wash deeply purifies pores and removes inlayed impurities and prevents formation of imperfection marks to give a perfect skin result.
Its refreshing formula delivers a double anti- spots & anti marks action:
Enriched with an excellent exfoliating ingredient, it deeply purifies pores.
Enriched with a natural regenerating active, it prevents the formation of imperfection marks. "

MY EXPERIENCE: Garnier Pure Active Pore Unclogging Wash is a pale blue face wash with liquid like consistency. It lathers easily and washes without leaving any residue. It has got a minty smell and it gives a cool, refreshed, cleansed skin hence I feel its a perfect facewash for the summers. However, I wish that the cool feeling lasted longer. Now the biggest con for me is the packaging. The screw-top cap packaging isn't travel friendly at all. As the face wash consistency is runny, it tends to leak from the tube no matter how tight you shut the cap. Moreover, a lot of product gets wasted by accumulating in the cap if one keeps it inverted. Also, in the first few tries, I poured a lot more product than necessary. 

As for the claims, it is not totally anti-acne, as I still got an acne, two days after using it, but this product is not the cause, as I get one/two acne every month during PMS. I think it works slightly as per the anti-marks claims as skin looks more clear and the spots are visibly lightened (but not completely gone). In a gist,

  • It lathers really well and cleanses skin effectively.
  • As you might already know, I dig minty flavours and smell. So I really like this product.
  • Love the cool, minty feeling on skin.
  • Helps to lighten acne spots to some extent.
  • Pocket friendly and comes in variable quantity to suit everyone's needs.
  • The packaging is not tavel friendly and the product tends to leak.
  • This won't stop the occurence of acne.

VERDICT: Had the packaging been leakproof it would have scored more brownie points. All in all it's a really nice facewash esp. for summers as it leaves skin feeling refreshed and squeaky clean without overdrying it! Might not suit extremely dry skin in winters.

RATINGS: 4 out of 5

  1. nice review pooji !! I had used this long tym back ... it was utter waste of money .. i was plagued by acne even though i used it daily .. on top of it it didnt cure my existing acne .. plus the cap somehow broke off ..ugh ! it ws horrible experience using dis

    1. yes it doesn't stop acne though it claims to contain salicylic acid...otherwise I like it as an everyday facewash!

  2. Ya I liked it as an everyday face wash too :) And even I get 1-2 zits at that time of the month..can't do much about it.. :(

  3. true :( I actually hate that it leaves those spots that takes months to disappear :(

  4. nice review dear... :) I have never tried any garnier products :( I will check this out :)

  5. How does it fair with blackheads though? I have really stubborn ones on my nose...

    By the way, I just opened my own blog and posted my first beauty product review last week. Hope you can check it out :)

    1. Oh there is a blackhead scrub in this range which I am yet to review..I don't have excessive blackheads but still would post my review soon! :)

      Nice blog u have there :)

  6. hey.. i have been using this facewash since its available in market.. n must say its a wonderful product..
    for packaging i agree with you, what i do is.. transfer the complete content into a clean n clear facewash bottle which is travel friendly(i've been using clean n clear facewash earlier, n was really sick with it)

    do it.. n u'll love dis product forever.. i wish garnier doesnt stop making it.. else where will i go :P :)
