Garnier Pure Pimple Control Pen Review

Garnier Pure Pimple Control Pen Review

Hello everyone!!! This time I’m reviewing Garnier Pure Pimple Control Pen.

I bought this pimple pen when I saw its advertisement on television. I don’t have a major break-out problem but still I bought this product. I don’t have a super oily skin but I get pimples when I apply a very moisturizing cream. Or because of the weather at times. So all in all, I don’t need a super active product to prevent pimples.

So when I bought this pure pen, I had high expectations from it because of the impression that the advertisement made on me!! Though it is not as good as the company claims.

Price: Rs. 95 for 10ml. I had bought it long back when it was for Rs. 80.
Garnier Pimple Pen

Expiry: best before 36 months from date of manufacture.

The Company says:

  • Is Garnier Pure pimple control pen right for me? Yes, if your skin is prone to pimples and if you are looking for an effective and targeted action.
  • Works on the pimple from the 1st application.

How is it different? Garnier Pure pimple control pen has been specifically designed to work on pimples from their first appearance and to ensure you recover pure, clear skin as soon as possible. It comes in a convenient, small tube you can carry around wherever you go

How does it work? Its gel formula covers and isolates the pimple, diffusing its active ingredients for a complete action.
1. As astringent agent to dry the pimple.
2. Salicylic acid to purify deep down where the pimple starts.

How do I use it? Apply Garnier Pure pimple control pen directly on the erupting pimple as soon as it appears and repeat application until the pimple has disappeared. Its special nozzle has been designed for a direct and precise application.

  • Garnier products use whenever possible, active natural ingredients which have been carefully extracted to preserve their quality and purity. Have been dermatologically tested to ensure their effectiveness and respect to your skin.

For hygienic reasons,

  • Do not share the tube.
  • Refrain from touching the nozzle.
  • Do not apply the product with your fingers.

Garnier Pimple Control Pen

So I applied this product on my pimple after cleansing my skin. And really, I could feel some tingling sensation on my skin. So as I thought, it was working!!!

But you cannot be sure whether it will always work on your pimple or not. This is the weirdest thing that I have experienced with this product. :silly: This is what many people I know have also experienced. ?:)
It has even burnt the skin of some people with very very sensitive skin. However, such cases are very rare. I too have sensitive skin but it never burnt my skin. Touchwood!

It won’t work good for many people who have a lot of pimples on their face..

Now jumping to the pros and cons!!

PROS of Garnier Pimple Control Pen

  • You can feel that it is working on your skin. (Provided that it is your lucky time that it is working on your pimple and not just sitting there and staring at the surroundings!!!)
  • Transparent gel
  • It has the perfect consistency that is required; neither runny nor too thick to come out of the tube
  • It dries the pimple and it converts the pimple into a dry layer of skin (Again provided that it works!!)
  • It is hygienic.
  • It is a very small tube, easy to use and store.
  • Never left a scar on my face. Even if it left one, the scar disappeared after some time. But it does leave scar on some people.
  • It works very well if you apply it on a developing pimple(just when you discover the pimple)

CONS of Garnier Pimple Control Pen

  • Very unpleasant smell. Once I applied it on the skin between my upper lip and nose, and I just couldn’t stand the smell. Yuck!
  • It even made tears come out of my eyes when applied near it!! A big NO for this area!
  • It won’t work for people with many pimples.
  • It’s a bit expensive.
  • The tube isn’t transparent; you won’t come to know when it gets emptied!
  • I feel unhappy that it doesn’t do what is claimed and is still expensive!!!

Garnier Pimple Pen

And I think that rubbing ice on my pimple is a better idea than this tube!!!
All in all, I will never recommend it to many people and perhaps it is a flop product from Garnier!!! Come on, it should at least work on all pimples?? Why does it differentiate between them?? Not fair na??

Shall I re-purchase it: NO!!!

Rating: :rose: :rose:

Love you all!!! Ta-da!!

        From then onwards….I never try even their skin products…..sab false promises on Ads :shutmouth: :shutmouth:

          1. :(( I used to love garnier sunscreen once upon a time..I still use it!! 😛 ..but just coz the weather here does not make it run like water and keeps its consistency thick enough to stay on my hand and face!! 😀 😀

  4. I got pimples once in my lifetime and I tried this pen. It worked and left no marks but my friend said even if I hadn’t used it my pimple would have vanished the same way :silly:

  5. ask me how much i have to fight with pimples in summers :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel:
    but pimples don’t vanish by this gel. i hv used clean n clear pimple clearing gel too bt all takes 2-3 days to do its job :weep: :weep: :weep:

  6. i have heard about this product since a long time,
    but i had this bad feeling about it :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2:

  7. Hey Princa…..I have found this to be the most effective pimple treatments, it works the best and another one I found out….but its a secrete 😀 :lol2: :lol2:

  8. nice Review Princa…. even I had got this a year back. did nothing for me… just fancy fancy package and all…. blahhhhh :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

  9. Too bad it didn’t work for too many people. I really like this product cos it always works for me-not all the way but suppresses the pimple to quite an extent. I find Garnier products very mild- which is probably why they don’t work for so many people. My cousin has super sensitive skin and she only uses Garnier cos its the only thing that never breaks her out.

  10. this one worked well for me. I bought a tube of it when I was in India and then I got someone to bring me back another tube as back up

  11. While this product results in temporary improvement- there is a reduction in swelling and redness, it actually caused my acne to spread across my entire face. I had about 2/3 pimples before using it, and after four/five days of starting to use the pimple pen, my entire cheek was covered with pimples. The dermatologist said the acne had also become infected. If you have more than one or two persistent pimples, skip this product and just head to your dermatologist!!
    Please be careful using this product.
