Do you have oily skin? If so, you may want to check out the new Garnier Skin Active Clean+ purifying and shine control range made with Charcoal and Kaolin Clay. Garnier’s new trio of products are all dermatologist & opthalmologist tested for safety • non comedogenic & gentle on the skin. Products (like these ones) that have been formulated with charcoal or clay can help oily or combination skin types draw out pore-clogging dirt and control the excess oil on their skin. I first wrote about the charcoal craze in 2014 when I introduced you to Biore’s lineup. Since then a number of beauty brands have released products infused with this “secret weapon” and it’s totally understandable – charcoal and clay are highly effective ingredients at removing oil, dirt and makeup! Let’s take a closer look at Garnier’s latest collection.
Skin Active Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel ($8.99 USD/$10.99 CAN)
This new cleansing gel from Garnier removes excess oil + mattifies the skin. It smells strong yet soothing and works to break down dirt and dissolve makeup. The oil-free formula is infused with charcoal & menthol and claims to draw out impurities “like a magnet” while keeping skin shine-free. After 1 week of continued use, pores are diminished and skin is expected to look visibly better.
Skin Active Clean+ Pore Purifying Clay Cleanser & Mask ($8.99 USD/$10.99 CAN)
This new creamy clay-based formula combines daily cleansing and a detox mask in one easy to use product. It works wonders as a daily cleanser for people with oily skin or it can also be used a few times a week as a mask to draw out impurities. Either method will leave skin feeling fresh & improve its tone and texture over time.
Will you be trying any of these new Garnier products out? Have you tried any skincare infused with charcoal before?
Did you know that you could find charcoal infused nose and face strips at the drugstore too?
