Garnier Pure Active Neem face wash review

People who suffer from acne are forever on a lookout for skin care products which will help them cure/reduce the horrendous pimples. On such a look out, I grabbed this tube of Garnier Skin Naturals' Pure Active Neem face wash.

The Garnier Skin Naturals' Pure Active Neem face wash comes in a tube and is a transparent slimy green gel. It contains neem and tea tree extracts since it is specifically meant for pimple prone skin and these ingredients have healing and soothing properties. Additionally it also contains salicylic acid and sodium benzoate which are the most effective and common ingredients of anything related to acne curing !! There's also menthol which gives a slight cooling and tingling sensation. The face wash is meant to fight bacteria and pollution and also remove excess oil from the face.

Garnier Neem face wash gives a squeaky clean feeling without making the skin dry or stretchy. Only a pea sized amount is enough to give sufficient foam. I don't 'feel' the need to use moisturiser after washing my face with it. I noticed my face was less oily compared to the usage of my regular face wash, even after 5 hours !! I am a fan forever :D though not much of curing the acne but I can feel that its not erupting as much as it used too !! Double fan :D :D Oh and it also has this typical 'Garnier' fragrance which is sorta citrusy, with a hint of neem and tea tree !!

My experience with this face wash has been very satisfying, which hardly ever happens. Sometimes, I use a face wash only for 2-3 days and it is then dumped on my poor mother in law :p This time however I can see myself, not just finishing, but also repurchasing this particular face wash.

The only con of this product is that it comes in a tube while I prefer bottles...but that doesn't make much of a difference.

Price : Rs. 75 for 100 gm.
