If you are a regular reader on the blog, you would know that I am a die-hard fan of Garnier Pore Unclogging face wash even though it has SLS. On my last trip to the supermarket, I was searching for another face wash which my skin would love and I picked up this Pure Active Neem one thinking it would be just the same and more over it was in a buy 2 get 1 offer. Bad idea to buy things for the first time in such offers!!
Anyways, needless to say the product disappointed me a lot. Why? Let us check out.

- Price : Rs 90 for 100gms

- Packaging : travel-friendly like all the tube face washes.
- Texture : gel face wash, green in color and needs a bit of water to wash off as it leaves a slimy feel after washing the face.

Usage and Results
I love using face washes as body wash as well when I am travelling as it saves a lot of space and is easy to carry. Thus, I got this product in bulk as I do have a lot of travel plans ahead. And, btw, my travel plan also includes a night stay at my in-laws place in the same city. I always prefer to carry my stuff. Do you do that as well?
So, as I mentioned above, the product leaves a slimy feel after washing off which I absolutely hate. That was a big con for me. Then, gradually, I realized that it was harsh for my skin (?). It would not make my skin dry and stretchy immediately but it slowly acts up on the skin on regular usage. I developed small pimples near my lips area which always happens with me if my skin gets extremely dry.
And, then, slowly my skin started to feel a lot older. I am not sure if it was this product or anything else like weather but I did not change any other product in my skin care routine so it has to be the face wash. I used this face wash on and off for few days and I could still see the difference. That was when I decided to let go of the product rather than ruin my skin. And, now, I am testing out another face wash which I am kinda excited about. Details coming soon 🙂

That was my story with this face wash. And, I am not sure if I would recommend it to anyone. Btw, I am urging Mr. P to try this face wash and see if it works for him. I shall definitely use it a bit more and see if my opinion changes. If it does, I shall definitely update the review 🙂
