“ Brand: Garnier / Type: Foam / Gender: for Men / „
I bought this on my trip to Hong Kong - it is a place I like stocking up on skincare products as there are ranges that are not available in the UK. I chose this product as a makeshift cleanser during my stay as the one I brought ran out and this was one of the cheapest (roughly £3) so I thought I would try it out and it definitely exceeded my expectations, giving my usual cleanser a run for its money! This product is available on Amazon for £5.29.
" Garnier Men AcnoFight 6-in-1 Anti-Acne Foam is the 1st cleanser for men that fights the 6 signs of acne day after day. Enriched with regenerating Herba Repair and purifying Salicylic acid, its cooling formula with gentle micro-beads help reduce oil, pimples, blackheads, pores, redness and marks."
~~~APPEARANCE AND TEXTURE~~~
The product comes in an inverted tube so the gel will naturally squeeze out, appropriate for when it is running low so there is no need to painfully squeeze the last drops out! The cleansing gel is blue in colour and has a slight metallic sheen to it. Embedded in the gel are tiny micro beads of different sizes, but encompass roughly 5%.
~~~USING THE PRODUCT AND EFFECTS~~~
I use this product morning and evening on a wet face. This product lathers up extremely well, offering a really silky smooth feeling and the small micro beads are not abrasive at all. It is gentle on the skin and has a nice fragrance, somewhat minty, paired with a slight tingle on the skin.
During rinsing, there is a 'bar soap effect' on the skin which I don't usually like with products and avoid but in this case, it is worth it, because skin feels refreshed, cleansed and smooth. It does require some effort to remove this product, more so than other products I've used, as sometimes I notice I missed a patch or something. I feel that this is due to the adhesiveness of the product to oil? so perhaps it is a good thing!
So, did the product live up to its promises? I would say that it does manage to reduce oil and pimples, but doesn't do much for the blackheads, pores, redness or marks, or atleast not very noticeably. It is definitely cooling on the skin during use!
I have used this product for about a month now and do feel that skin is less oily for longer and spot outbreaks have reduced, although I did get a bad outbreak one time whilst using this product but could be traced to the streak of bad oily foods I ate!
It is not only enjoyable to use this product, but it offers a really good clean as well, plus it is gentle on the skin. Don't forget the awesome price that you can get it for! I would highly recommend this product to everyone, not just men, because it is gentle enough for female skin!
