I am not a girl with night time routine or day time routine, or any skin care ‘routine’ as such. I am a face wash- moisturizer kind of girl. Anything additional, that too on a daily basis seems too much of burden to me. I apply scrub on my face occasionally when I feel my skin is getting dull. I feel that with my skin already being dry, additional scrubbing and tugging might dry it out even more. But the Garnier Pro active Apricot scrub was a pleasant surprise.
Garnier Pure Active Exfoliating scrub Review
This scrub comes in a squeeze tube packaging with flip open cap. The cap is sturdy, leak proof and travel friendly. The image of splashing apricot on the tube is cute.
The fragrance is amazing. I dont know exactly how to describe it. Slight fruity, fresh, apricot-y types. But the fragrance does not linger for long.
The scrub is white colored with orange colored apricot seed granules. The texture is very creamy with soft, fine granules of apricot seed which does not feel harsh on skin at all. Of late all the Garnier products I am using are quite creamy. The creamy texture of the scrub feels just perfect on the skin.
The scrubbing particles are evenly suspended and does not feel abrasive. This scrub cleanses well leaving the skin fresh, soft and clear. This scrub does not leave the skin dry like other scrubs but I still feel the need to apply a moisturiser. I don’t have blackheads, but as this is not a heavy duty scrub, it may not remove blackheads that effectively.
Price: Rs 70 for 50g
Overall, this is a great budget scrub for dry skinned beauties. It exfoliates pretty well without making the skin dry and is easy on pocket. The amazing fragrance is an added bonus. But this is mild scrub and may not be that effective on blackheads.
