Garnier Clean Detox Gentle Brightening Scrub - review

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.

  9. com - One you have found several potential lawyers
    you should call it to arrange an initial discussion. Indeed, he
    would do his best in making verdicts in such a way that things tends
    to turn in the favor of his client. They may be checking the clocks on their cell
    phones quite often but you will never hear any personal injury attorney worth
    their salt complain about being in court too long -- at
    least not to the judge.

  10. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I'm very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to
    this.
