 Salicyclic acid + HerbaRepair
Roots out blackheads
Prevents marks

100 gms for INR 150

Company says:- Garnier PureActive is a new generation of concentrated formulas tested on acne prone skin.
Is PureActive Blackhead uprooting scrub made for me?
Yes, if your skin is prone to blackheads and you wish to remove them while cleansing to prevent their re-appearance and clear imperfection marks.

Why is it different?
Its creamy formula delivers a double ANTI-SPOTS ANTI-MARKS action:
1. Enriched with an excellent exfoliating ingredient and powerful micro beads, it roots out blackheads. Blackheads are visibly reduced.
2. Thanks to its remarkable scrubbing properties and enriched with a natural regenerating active, it helps peel off imperfection marks.

Its secret?
An unprecedented association in the formula which fights imperfections and their marks:
¤ Concentrated Salicyclic acid is one of the most efficient exfoliating actives*.
¤ The proven power of plants: HerbaRepair is a natural active extracted from Vaccinium myrtillus and exceptional regenerating and skin-repairing properties*. *Tested in Vitro
I love the pretty blue grains, they are so gentle on my skin

How do I use it?
Daily apply on wet face. Gently rub the foamy cream across your face insisting on the most affected areas and your T-zone. Rinse thoroughly. Avoid the eye contour.

Soap free washing preparation with organic surface active agent.

My Opinion:- I am sensitive to most scrubs so its a real pain to find the right formula. Using most scrubs gives my skin some redness and irritation :( A couple of months back when I was browsing through the shelves of a cosmetic counter, the SA suggested I give this scrub a try. I purchased it after going through the details on the tube.

             When I opened the lid of the tube, the smell of shaving cream put me off. I took a small blob and added a little water, it foamed well. I applied it on my wet skin and gently massaged it into my face, neck and nape. Wow it was very mild on my skin and gave a cool sensation which I love very much. I kept massaging for 2-3 mins giving max attention to the corners of my nose (hope you understand what I mean), I got a few tiny blackheads over there.

             After washing off I didn't see any redness and my skin was not irritated. Also my cheeks didn't feel dry and I had a nice glow on my face. In the beginning, I was skeptical to use it daily on my face but after using it for a week, I began using it daily but only once, in the morning/or at night, whenever I feel like. This scrub is gentle on my pimples also and it cleans off the oil from the surface of the skin with ease.

             And yeah, about the anti-mark and anti-spot factor, I would say it did nothing of that sort for me even after using it for 2 months now. Another thing is that only a little blob is required every time so I can say that a little goes a long way. This tube is nearly over now, so I thought its the best time to share my experience with you all.

Makes my skin soft, smooth and glowing
Uproots blackheads from the corners of my nose
Gives a fresh feeling when used
Its very gentle on my skin
A little goes a long way

Smells like shaving cream
I feel it wouldn't uproot stubborn blackheads (I don't have stubborn ones but its just a feeling :D)
Anti mark anti spot claim is totally false
Gives a slight stinging sensation to the area between my nose and upper lip, but nothing serious

                      I rate this product 3.75 out of 5. This daily scrub is working for my oily-acne prone skin right now but I would not purchase it again since I plan to try out a scrub from another brand. This product is not bad at all but I wouldn't rate it as very good also, just somewhere in between :P
