Garnier Pure Active Range

So this post is long overdue, and as the Lovely Natalie at Headstream PR is finishing her report for Garnier on Monday I thought I would give you my two pennies worth on the Garnier Pure Active range.

This isn't going to be a long post as to be honest I'm sure you have all already read lots of posts about this particular skin care range.

As a whole I personally did not like the Pure Active Range for one reason... the scent.

To me it smelt like "mens toiletries" smell, and I hated it. I therefore didn't use the products continuously enough to write an honest review.

However the moisturiser is a different story. As most of you are aware I was already using the Garnier Pure A Moisturiser before the new range came out. I was actually on my third bottle.

I was therefore very excited to try the new version of the moisturiser, and I absolutely love it just I did its predecessor. To summarise here is what I love about this moisturiser:

  • It has the most lovely refreshing cucumber scent
  • It isn't at all greasy and absorbs into the skin quickly
  • it almost seems to mattify shine on the skin
  • It is also a nice base for make up
  • It has a new pump action rather than the traditional squeezy bottle

Overall this moisturiser gets a huge thumbs up from me. If you havnt already tried it and have oily acne prone skin I recommend you give it a try! I am now on my 5th bottle!




  1. Oooo I am thinking of upgrading my moisturiser...I used neutrogena's oil free one at the moment. How much is this one?x

  2. I defo may need to try that moisturiser. Is it oil free? :) x

  3. I'm the same, this is the only thing I really liked from the new range! xx

  4. I've just run out of that moisturiser - I really love the smell of it, I think i'm going to repurchase soon :) x

  5. I was almost tempted by this product today, I bought some other 'problem skin' products though and will be writing them up soon. It does sound like this could be a good procduct for me though. What are the ones you have really not got on with?
