Hello Beauties!! Today I am back with another skincare product review and this post is about Garnier Pure Active Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub. This is a newly launched face scrub from Garnier. We all know exfoliation plays a huge part in our skin care routine. Especially in winter, it is important to make sure that we exfoliate regularly. During winter months, our skin is very often dehydrated. And as a result, our skin cells ‘die’ faster. Gentle and regular exfoliating removes these dead skin cells at the surface to reveal fresh and glowing skin & helps our skin to absorb the moisturizer in a much better way. Skin looks radiant and feels smooth.

I am a massive fan of Everyuth scrubs. Of late, I have been using Everyuth naturals advanced Hydro-Active walnut apricot scrub & it was really good. Recently I ran out of my scrubber and when I went to get another tube, I suddenly noticed this Garnier PureActive Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub. I have never used any Garnier scrub before because they did not contain apricot. Apricot has always been my favorite exfoliator as it gently exfoliates dead skin cells and blackheads and deep cleanses the skin. Apricot also stimulates fresh cell growth and keeps the skin glowing and smooth. As soon as I saw, this new scrub from Garnier contains apricot, I thought ‘let’s give it a try’. Read on to know how it fared me.

What Garnier Pure Active Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub claims
My experience with Garnier Pure Active Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub
Garnier PureActive Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub comes in a white colored tube with a white flip open cap. The front part of the tube has got a picture of fresh apricot splashing which the tube looks pretty attractive. The cap is totally spill proof, hence absolutely safe to carry.
The scrub smells awesome. The fragrance is of fresh apricot. But it won’t bother sensitive noses as the smell is mild. The scrub itself is white in color with brown colored apricot particles can be seen. The particles are really tiny and not so harsh. Garnier Pure Active Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub has got creamy consistency, but not really thick.
For the first time when I used this scrub, I took out small amount on my palm and was trying to feel the ‘harshness’ of those tiny apricot particles with my fingers. And the fact that those particles aren’t really harsh got me little worried as I have always preferred harsh scrubs (especially in winter) because of my dry skin. Once I wash off my face, I was taken by real surprise. My skin looked brighter, fresh and healthy. Skin felt soft and smooth to touch. And moreover, it did not dry out my skin even a bit. It’s just amazing.
With regular use, I have noticed a change in my skin texture. My skin looks more radiant now. Those tiny apricot particles are not harsh on the skin at all, but do a wonderful job in terms of exfoliating. Garnier Pure Active Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub effectively removes the dead skin cells and cleanses away the dirt and oil from the skin. What I love most about this scrub is that it doesn’t dry out my skin at all and leaves me with an instant brightness.
Because of the creamy texture of the scrub, it spreads easily on the skin and only a little amount is required. It comes off easily with water without leaving any oily film on the skin. Skin feels fresh, clean, soft and smooth.
The only not-so-good thing I noticed about Garnier Pure Active Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub is that it’s not much effective on blackheads, especially on those old, stubborn ones.
In a nutshell, Garnier Pure Active Apricot Exfoliating Face Scrub is a very good scrub for daily use. It does its job quite well without over drying the skin. This formula is free from paraben. If you are looking for a budget-friendly & good for everyday use scrub, then go for it. Don’t expect to work on the stubborn blackheads though.
