Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 Charcoal Anti-Blackhead Review

garnier pure active blackhead review

I've always struggled with blackheads and big pores. I can never seem to get rid of my blackheads, I've only ever been able to reduce the appearance of them. Garnier Pure Active is a 3 in 1 product; wash, scrub and a mask. I've been using this product for a few months now and tried each way in using it to see if there's any difference in the results. 

The uses:
Wash - apply daily to a wet face.
Scrub - Every day, gently massage to exfoliate the skin.
 Mask - Up to three times a week, apply to a clean dry face. 

I have personally found that there is no difference whatsoever in what way you apply this product. I feel like each way gives the exact same results. This product definitely reduces the look of pores and blackheads. It does also mattify the skin which is perfect if you have super oily skin like mine! I have found that I don't need to use blotting paper as much throughout the day anymore.

My favourite way to use this product was doing the mask method as you can always see the dirt and impurities being drawn out of the skin. I was worried about my skin becoming really dry after doing the mask technique so many times a week but my skin was absolutely fine. 

Overall, this product does work and reduces the appearance of blackheads and pores. It's definitely not a 3 in 1 product though as all the uses do the same job and give the same results. 

What can you recommend for blackheads and oily skin?


  1. I didn't expect it to be so opaque on the skin, I think I might give it a try! xx

    1. It's definitely worth trying out, it's also really easy to wash off too x

  2. I keep seeing this products out there and I never know whether to buy it or not. I also had a similar product by Nivea and I also didn't see a difference in the way I applied it...
    However, if you say it does remove some blackheads, it's a yes from me :D
