It’s been a while.
If you follow me on social media, you would have seen that recently I decided to take a break from Instagram and posting almost daily. As a student, my work load can go from “what am I doing at campus” to “I should be paid for writing 2000 word essays and coming in for tests on Saturdays”.
I love unwinding while I write papers so that I don’t feel overwhelmed. Taking care of yourself is an important asset to your mental health and should always be your first priority. Recently I received the Garnier Pure Active Intensive 3-in-1 Anti-Blackhead Wash, Scrub and Mask from Garnier and at first I was a bit hesitant. Being someone with sensitive skin, I wasn’t sure how my skin would react to the product and if it would work.
First off, I have to say that I received 2 products but will be saving my second review for my demo video. If you didn’t know, I have a YouTube channel which you can find here if you would like to see beauty tutorials, reviews and vlogs. I would love if you would subscribe to my channel so you can be a part of my YouTube family.
I used the charcoal scrub as a mask and I have to say I’m really impressed. It didn’t smell too intense but still had a very nice scent. After leaving the mask on for 5 minutes, I washed it off with warm water. Most masks usually leave my skin feeling rubbery and tight after using them and then result in a massive break out. This mask left my skin feeling so soft and smooth. Apparently this product is supposed to tighten pores as well and I did feel it working. I have yet to get the dreaded blackhead break out but I’m so eager to put this bad boy to work! I love the product so much and I cannot say enough good things about it.
