I recently posted saying I wanted a new cleanser and toner, so I popped into Boots and picked up two new products that I have never tried before.
It took my ages to decide if I wanted a wash or a scrub to using in my morning routine. As I haven't had a gel wash in a while, I decided to try it out to see the difference in my skin. The one I went for after about half an hour of choosing was the Garnier pure active fruit energy daily energising gel wash. It states to target imperfections, awakens skin and tightens pores. This product is aimed at oily skin to imperfections which is a category which I definitely fall into. The scent contains extracts of grapefruit, pomegranate and vitamin C. It also says on the packaging that is is different to other products as the formula contains purifying salicylic acid which is great for skin with imperfections. I have really enjoyed usually this I have been using it every morning for the past three weeks and after I have used the daily wash, my skin feels instantly smooth and refreshed. It has a nice fruity scent which is my favourite and it lathers into a nice smooth texture and feels refreshing when applied. I am a huge fan of this and would recommend it to others who have a similar skin type to me. The product also comes in a facial scrub if that is what you prefer and both products are £4.99.
The Garnier simply essentials soothing vitamin-enriched toner is the toner which I picked up. It says it is suitable for sensitive skin or if your skin feels fragile when cleansing, this drew me to this product as I wanted something that didn't contain too many ingredients. It states to contain no perfume, no alcohol and no colourants, the product is enriched with soothing water lily extracts and pro-vitamin B5. What I like the most about this product is its simplicity, when cleansing it has a pleasant scent but nothing to overpowering and it really does make the face feel refreshed. It does the job beautifully and at just £2.99 I think it is a real beauty steal. There are a few different cleansers in the range for different skin types so everyone can find one suitable for their skin type, although I think this one would be perfect for all skin types.
I would recommend these products to people wanting to vamp up their routines this January and the price of the products makes them a real winner. It ties in well with drugstore January and being on a budget, I am really pleased I discovered these products and have incorporated them into my routine religiously.
