Review: Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub and Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-On

Hi readers!

   My FOTD or feature of the day are Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub and Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-On. Remember my post when I received Garnier Pure Active products? (you can read it here) After I received these products, I tested it right away and after a few days of using it I was really amazed and impressed with the changes in my skin. Third week of April I got 1 pimple on my forehead and I was happy, yes sounds weird but I think that was the right time to test if these products really work. (I do have photo's but too bad I accidentally deleted it (oh no! clumsy me). Going back to my test, on the first day I washed my face with Garnier Multi-Action Scrub and I also used Anti-imperfection cooling roll-on. The second day I did the same but this time I noticed the pimple became dried, I notice my pimple start to fade - I'll call it as fading stage (^_^). Third day, my pimple was very very small, dry and if you look at it, you'll never notice I had one. Fourth day I was surprised because my pimple was gone and no mark. I was impressed how quickly these products work. 

Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-On and  Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub.
Active ingredients:
   Its active ingredients include Purifying Salicylic Acid with Maximum Concentration at 2% and Natural HerbaRepair. Salicylic Acid is a powerful anti-bacterial ingredient with oil control properties and pore clearing properties, while Natural HerbaRepair is from blueberry extracts, and helps repair and regenerate the skin to prevent scarring.

Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub
According to Garnier this is the first facial scrub that actively fights 6 skin problems like pimples, whiteheads. oiliness, enlarged pores, impurities and unevenness. 
What the packaging says:
   Oily skin, pimples, whiteheads, dirt, enlarged pores and irregular texture?

Usage: Gently massage on wet face, lather instantly. Rinse off with water. Avoid eye area.

Pros (What I like):
  • Effective. As I mention above, I tested this product and I saw the result.
  • I love the scent. It smells like sampaguita flower.
  • Affordable. For 100 ml. tube it cost P150 pesos and for 50 ml. tube it cost P85.00 pesos only.

Cons (What I don't like):
   I can't think of any.

With manufacturing date - see the picture above.
I sent a message to Garnier Philippines regarding the shelf life of their facial scrub and roll-on, they immediately replied me and says: "Hi Glenn! Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action and Anti-Imperfection Roll-On have a shelf life of 1 year once opened and 3 years if unopened.

  10. Hi! Wanna ask lang. Tingin mo it'll work just fine kahit yun active scrub lang muna? I mean, just for trial lang. Coz hindi naman ganun kalala yun pimples but interested ako gumamit so plan ko sana yun scrub lang muna as facial wash. Watcha think? :)

    1. Hi Anonymous, thanks for dropping by on my blog :)

      With regards to your question; facial scrub is good product because it has salicylic acid that can fight pimples also and not only that it has anti-bacterial substance, so it not only helping you to fight pimples it also cleanse the face. Alam mo ba until now, I'm still using Garnier facial scrub because first of all since I used this, so far wala pa naman akong pimples, second my skin doesn't experience any irritations and third affordable pa sya (ang alam ko may sachet ito na cost around 5.00 plus lang)

      Now if you want immediate result in removing your pimples (as in fast result) I suggest you use Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfection Cooling Roll-On (yan naman ang advantage of the Roll-on) Since sabi mo nga you only have small pimples, Facial Scrub is okey (^_^)

  12. Hi Glenn, my mom bought this product for me pero yung scrub lang. I'm trying it now and this is my 2nd day. I've tried alot of products pero matigas talaga ulo ng pimples ko, pabalik-balik and worse, padami pa. As in break-out talaga. I don't plan on using the roll-on pa muna, pero I just want your opinion on this: is it okay to use the roll-on sakin kung madami yung break-out (dikit-dikit sila and parang ripe haays, skin problems).

    1. Hi Anonymous :) yes you can use the roll on, mas better pa nga to, it will immediately heal your pimples. You will just experience that your pimple became dry until it fades. With regards to your pimple problem, I feel you dear (I've gone through that part also), there are lots of reason why we get pimples like not getting a proper amount of rest or sleep, so my advice to you is make sure you have at least 8 hours of sleep. Other reason is you might got it from a bacteria, so my advice make sure to clean your face, you can do it before you hit your bed (that why some professional and even celebrities advice that make sure you remove your make-up or wash your face before bedtime).

      Now if you think your pimple problem is getting worse, it is time to visit a dermatologist, they can give you right medication for that.

      Hope this help, again thanks for dropping by (^_^)

  13. Hi I'm using Garnier now and this is just my second day. I use the facial scrub,next the toner and then the anti-imperfection roll-on.. :) And I really can see the changes-my pimples became small but it's itchy and red,my pores also opened. Is this normal? And can i use the facial scrub 3times/day?

    1. Hi Anonymous, yes I also experience that itchy part (especially when I used the Roll-on) It might be the skin reaction to salicylic acid. I tried to use the facial scrub 3 times a day and I didn't see any adverse reaction so for me its okey.

  14. Hi po, I've been using Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub na po for months and napansin po ng mga classmates ko na umiitim po ako and yun dun ko na napansin na umiitim talaga ako. Hindi naman po ako nagbibilad sa araw. Wala naman po akong ginamit na product except for this kaya tinigilan ko po ang pag gamit nito pero tuloy-tuloy pa rin yung pag gamit ko ng Garnier Roll-on. Na experience nyo rin po ba to? Kasi ma pimple po kasi akong tao. And I always wear make-up everyday po like foundation at saka liquid foundation.

    1. Hi Jaybee thanks for your comment. To be honest with you, I also notice that. I notice na parang umiitim nga siya, I only observe this lately, kasi noon I used this together with a whitening cream kaya hindi ko na notice na nagdadarken ang skin ko, then after I stop using the whitening cream doon ko na lang na observed na medyo nagdadark nga siya. So I will include that to the cons in using the facial scrub. It maybe because of the acidity of salicylic acid or because of the other chemical content. With regards to the Roll-On ang observation ko naman is itchy part lang kapag pinapahid mo na siya sa pimples or sa skin.

    1. Hi JC! thanks for dropping by on my blog ^_^. For your first question " Nakaka itim po ba talaga ang garnier pure active? As I answer the same question from above commenter, yes nakaka itim siya, yon ang isa sa nakita kong CONS niya. Before I used this twice daily but after I discovered that it darken my skin, I used this once na lang or kapag may pimples lang ako.

      Yes, effective ang Ponds facial wash I also used this before and I saw the result, my skin became fairer. If your after whitening, its okey to use Ponds but if you want a pimple free face, use Garnier. You can buy Garnier in Mercury Drugs, Groceries Department Store nationwide.
