Today I thought I would write up a review for the Garnier 2in1 Make-Up-Remover Purifying Gel (Boots – £4.99) seeing as I have been using it for about 2 months now.
What does it do?
This is a 2in1 product that not only removes your makeup but it also combats imperfections. If you have combination-oily skin that is prone to imperfections then this is definitely worth a try as it contains anti-bacterial Salicylic Acid which is known to clear up those pesky spots! As well as treating spots the gel unclogs your pores, helps to reduce shine and removes your makeup effortlessly, even if it’s waterproof!
The first time I used it I found it a little bit messy because of the consistency as it didn’t lather up as much as I thought it would, a lot of the gel ran down my arms as I was putting it on my face, however, I did use 2 pumps as I thought that 1 pump didn’t look like enough but I was proved wrong the next day when I only used 1 pump. It didn’t run everywhere like before and it lathered up a little bit. I usually wear a full face of makeup which usually consists of a liquid foundation, concealer, setting powder, eyeshadow, pencil eyeliner, gel eyeliner and a lipstick/lip gloss and everything was removed in a few little hand movements. It left my skin feeling cleansed, refreshed and really soft. As for the combating imperfections, I didn’t notice much, the redness faded a little bit however I still got some spots here and there.
I think this is a great product for removing makeup and reducing the shiny look on my skin but it didn’t help me with my spots, however just because it didn’t work on my skin doesn’t mean that it won’t work with yours because everyone has different skin.
If you try it out then let me know how you get on with it!
