Hello pretty ladies! Finally summer is ending and we are enjoying showers here in Kolkata. But the days it doesn't rain, the temperature rises and humidity makes us sweat like anything. The onset of summer gives me threat of pimples and acne. There was a time when I had dry skin and never got pimples. When I stepped into my twenties, the hormonal changes transformed my skin from dry to combination. Its then the problem of acne and pimples started. I get at least one breakout in a week definitely these days. So whatever product I find with the ingredient neem in it, attracts my eyes. Neem has been used as an anti-bacterial since time immemorial. In a country like India, neem is considered as a magical plant. So when I got the Garnier Pure Active Real Neem Face Wash in my Diva Likes haul, I was elated. I had never used a face wash from Garnier and I am always open to experimenting with new products. I was having two big breakouts and that is when I started using this face wash. To know what it did to my breakouts, read ahead.

My Experience With Garnier Pure Active Real Neem Face Wash:

Garnier Pure Active Real Neem Face Wash comes in a regular white tube with a flip flop cap. The tube has green detailing of neem leaves that is neither too attractive nor too boring. I find the cap slightly loose. Though it shuts tight, the face wash leaks from the sides of the cap when I keep it inverted. I have to keep it in a flat position. That makes the packaging less travel friendly as it can leak during travelling. The face wash is lemony green in color with a runny gel like consistency. The fragrance is very herbal and refreshing. The gel like consistency makes it good for combination to oily skin people.

It lathers pretty well but does not create any sort of foam. Washing needs a lot of water to clean the face otherwise it may feel little slippery. When we use this face wash, the face feels cool. I guess it is because of the presence of menthol in it. It does not feel dry on skin like the usual herbal face washes. It cleans the face effectively, removing dirt and grime well. As mentioned before, I had two major pimples at the time I started using this face wash and this face wash effectively dried it in 4 days when used twice a day as instructed. Though the marks have not faded, the pimple has dried completely. Moreover it controls oil for a good 1-2 hours. I guess with regular usage it will help in removing the marks also. I surely give a thumbs up to this product for making the pimples disappear.

Pros Of Garnier Pure Active Real Neem Face Wash:
  • Helps in controlling oil.
  • Dries the pimples effectively.
  • Removes dirt and grime well cleaning the face effectively.
  • Gives a refreshing cooling sensation.
  • Cleans the face without drying it.

Cons Of Garnier Pure Active Real Neem Face Wash:
  • The packaging to be flimsy and has leakage problem.

Diva Likes Rating:


Final Note:

I am finding this face wash really helpful in fighting the pimple problem. It helps in drying pimples when used regularly and gives a cooling sensation to the face with a refreshing aroma. It also cleans up the face effectively and helps in controlling oil. I highly recommend this face wash to people who are constantly fighting pimples problem like me.
