I am not at all a morning person, and I really need someone to wake me up – be it my mom, my alarm or say zingy face washes. The moment I saw this stuff I knew I had to pick this and the face wash from the same range. I do need a boost of energy during mornings which this scrub promised to give. I have already reviewed the face wash for you guys, and now it is all about the scrub. Read to know more about this.

My Experience with Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub:
The Garnier Pure Active fruit energy scrub comes in a fat inverted tube with a flip cap which is very conveniently designed. The tube is not needed to be squeezed since it is designed in an inverted pattern. I must say the packaging looks very attractive in ombre orange; it is very vibrant and has pictures of juicy pink grapefruit slices and pomegranate seeds over it. If you have to pick just one from a lot of face washes on the shelf, then this will surely grab a lot of attention. Though it is very fat, it is travel-friendly.
The gel scrub is, indeed, a very thick gel in light peach colour and only a little quantity is needed each time due to the thick texture. It has small, orange scrubby bits which are noticeable only if you observe very closely. It does not lather up on the face, but the gel cleanses my face very well removing all the excess oil, impurities and daily dirt. But since the scrub is very gentle, it does not unclog the pores within a day; it will happen only if this is used daily. It leaves my skin very fresh but not radiant. My complexion does not look enhanced in any way, it just looks the same, but yes I get a boost of freshness every morning I use this.
This cannot really be called a scrub because the exfoliation property is average, not like an actual scrub. But I totally understand the fact why have they made such gentle granules, because they have designed it for everyday use. It has a refreshing scent of pomegranate and pink grapefruits, but it isn’t very energising and does not provide any zingy sensation to the skin, as claimed. It makes my skin texture very even, my skin feels very smooth. Also my combination skin stays matte for like 3-4 hours which is really good.
But it does not have any effect on my imperfections, has a very little effect on my pores; along with pore tightening it also gives that tight feeling to my skin. My skin feels a lot more dry whenever I use this. The dryness lasts for a small time, but it cannot be avoided. So I think it is very decent, every-day scrub that will just cleanse your skin and leave it fresh, and nothing more. Great for oily skin during summers; dry skinned beauties this is not for you and this is also not apt for winters.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub?
For summers, yes, I would recommend it to oily skinned beauties because it pretty much cleanses the oil from my face, the routine dirt and also controls the oil production for a good time. Dry skinned beauties have to surely stay away from this. I might, I might not just come back to this because as of now I have a lot of stuff to play with.
I love Garnier washes, or say the entire skincare range for daily use because it just nails it when it comes to pure skin cleansing.
