Garnier Clean Detox Gentle Brightening Scrub - review

5:04 PM

Dammit, Priceline! As soon as I have way more stuff than I'll ever be able to use stockpiled under my bed/in the bathroom/in The Boyfriend's side of the wardrobe (please don't tell him!), you suck me back in with a sexy sale. This time it was 40% off all Garnier products, which c'mon, is me basically losing money if I don't buy a few things right? Right!

One of the products I nabbed is Garnier's Clean Detox Gentle Brightening Scrub. I normally steer clear of anything labelled as 'detox' or 'clean' because they tend to be too harsh on my drier skin. But at just under $4 after the 40% off, worth a try as exhoiliators are the one thing I'm running low on.

It's a physical cleanser, and feels cool on the skin as it lathers to a surprisingly thick foam. The micro-beads are spread thin - this is a daily scrub, not a weekly heavy duty effort. After rinsing my skin feels stripped and squeaky clean, a really bad sign. The next morning - BAM a few dry patches and a lone itchy pimple, sure sign that the cleanser sucked my skin dry. I'm also disappointed that it was a foaming scrub as it didn't suggest this anywhere on the tube and I always to to skip these due to their dehydrating properties

I'm not going to bother trying this on my face again, and have banished it to my boyfriend's side as a possible back scrub for him. Not worth it, even with 40% off.

So far I've only seen this in Priceline for A$6.95.
