Review : Garnier Pure 3-in-1 Triple Power Anti-imperfections

Last year, I gave a tube of this Garnier Pure 3-in-1 Triple Power Anti-imperfections (Wash+scrub+mask) to my sister and she rave about it... so I tried it myself and I agree on why she like it so much!

Normally, I will try to avoid using products like this... because using a products that contains clay and beads normally will irritate my skin if I use it constantly. But after trying out both Garnier and Vichy version - I keep my option open for future 3-in-1 products.

From the website::
Garnier Pure 3 in 1 Wash, Scrub & Mask simplifies skin care routine by delivering 3 benefits in one product to help deeply purify, eliminate impurities, and mattify the surface of your skin.

Enriched with clay and mineral zinc, Pure 3 in 1 Wash, Scrub & Mask’s anti-bacterial formula works as a daily cleanser, scrub and mattifying mask to visibly reduce impurities and help prevent their reappearance.

As a wash: It deeply cleanses to remove excess oil and purify skin.
As a scrub: It exfoliates dead skin cells and unclogs pores to dislodge blackheads.
As a mask: It helps eliminate excess sebum and mattifies the skin.

Ingredients list~

I enjoying using this as a mask more then the other 2 options!
Normally I will try to avoid clay mask as my skin doesn't really agree with them .. but after testing this out on my nose (only) .. I didn't feel any tightening, stinging, burning sensation... I start to spread out the area bit by bit each time I use the mask (I use this once per week). Soon I'm comfortable to use this on my whole face and my skin doesn't have any reaction to it!

Skin feel smooth and doesn't feel oily easily (well, my skin wasn't that oily to begin with - I have combination skin, which is more dry then oily - but do feel oily on my T-zone on humid weather.)

My sister commented that her skin feel less oily each time she use this! Less oily = less break-out!

- After masking, skin feel smooth and soft~
- My skin doesn't feel dry nor tight after I towel dry
- No irritation nor breaking-out
- No burning sensation also
- I can't comment much on whether this look matte or not, cos I apply my moisturizer right away.
- Apply a thin layer and it dries up pretty fast

This does help to prevent new break-out as it control the sebum release on the skin and helps to take away any excess sebum on skin surface.

After finishing up this product, I let my skin go free for any products that will help to prevent acne/inflammation break-out... and then my skin start to act up! Have a few blemishes around my outer lower cheeks.. (I hate it.. cos the color is so deep that concealer don't do much help!)

Using it as a scrub:
It's a nice scrub, not too harsh and skin feel clean and smooth~

Using it as a wash(cleanser)
A little bit too harsh as a cleanser - cos I still can feel the beads! I prefer foamy and non scrubby feeling type of cleanser. But it does it work by making skin feel clean and smooth (more suitable for combination or oily skin)

After trying both Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ 3-in-1 Cleanser and Garnier Pure 3-in-1 Triple Power Anti-imperfections... I prefer the Garnier .. the product is less thick and feel a bit milder.

Available at Watsons and various supermarket that has a Garnier counters/shelving
