I think we can all agree that there is nothing worse than an outbreak of spots before a big event or even at all really!!!! As the old saying goes 'prevention is always better than cure', however here's the answer in one - prevention & a cure together!!!! The skincare experts at Garnier have now developed a maximum strength solution - NEW Garnier Pure Active. It is a medicated skincare range with instant effective action, delivering results from day one. It helps to fight against the appearance of spots and reduce the appearance of marks left on the skin, which for myself is one of the most annoying things about an outbreak, even after you have managed to banish the spot itself the tell tale signs of it's existence are still there for over a week!!! I have been putting this to test for the last week (Garnier Pure Active Spot-On Roll-On, Garnier Pure Active Deep Pore Unclogging Wash & Pure Active Blackhead Clearing Scrub) & the improvement has been vast, my skin has cleared up rapidly after a pesky outbreak last week, the marks have faded way too, which is a bonus seeing as I have my Birthday bash at the end of the week!!!!
A maximum concentration of 2% purifying salicylic acid formula works to deeply cleanse skin and clear pores to fight spots, whilst the herbasoothe active ingredient, derived from blueberry, respects and cares for the skin.
Over all an excellent product range that will be staying put in my bathroom cabinet for sure! Details of the range below -
Garnier Pure Active Spot-On Roll-On (RRP £7.49)
Garnier Pure Active Blackhead Clearing Scrub (RRP £4.99)
