Garnier Pure Control Scrub was one of the MANY products that I have tried to try and get my acne under control. I used the entire container before deciding that this product clearly was not for me. It actually made my face break out more and it gave a weird filmy feeling on my face after I used it.
This scrub works wonders for mild acne.Doesn't dry out the skin and leaves your face feeling soft.Not sure on the effectiveness when faced with severe acne but I love the product!
Skin Type: Combination/Normal with very occasional oiliness
Skin Issue: Slight Acne Breakouts every 2-4 weeks and acne scarring on cheeks.
I used this product twice daily, in the morning shower and at night and I felt the product dried out my face overall, but this isn't a problem for me personally, as I moisturize after any facial cleansing.
What I wanted this scrub to accomplish was to really scrub away dead skin cells, and it is a great exfoliant. However, it didn't appear to reduce my acne significantly over the weeks that I tried it out, my older acne scars did see a definite reduction, but acne was still returning.
I would recommend this scrub purely as a scrub, not as a product that will directly fight the acne and reduce its frequency.
