Today I am reviewing Garnier Men's face wash for Acne. Garnier sure knows how to market their products.Let us see if it made it or stuck out!
Ingredients:Aqua/water, Glycerin, Myristic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Steraric Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Polyethylene, Glyceryl Disterate, Glyceryl Stearate, Perfum/Fragrance, Kaolin, CI 42090/Blue1, CI 42090/Blue1 Lake, CI77007/Ultramarines, Citrus, Medica Limonum Extract/ Lemon fruit extract, Menthol, Methylsothiazolinone, PEG-14M, Salicylic Acid, Synthetic Wax, Tetrasodium EDTA, Vacinium Myrtillus Extract/Vacinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract.
My Skin Type:Oily and Acne Prone Skin.
Price:Rs 85 for 50grams and Rs 170 for 100 grams.
Availablity:1)To buy on Flipkart, Click HERE.

As you can see it is light blue creamy formula with dark blue exfoliating beads
1)It contains acne fighting ingredient Salicylic Acid.
2)It contains Kaolin which helps with oil control and exfoliation.
3)It contains Lemon extracts is a antiseptic and Blueberry extracts which is a antioxidant.
4)It cleanses well.
5)It might work for mild acne.
1)For a product which claims to be a face wash for acne,it is highly comedogenic.Myristic acid,Palmitic acid,Stearic acid,Glyceryl Stearate are comedogenic.
2)Garnier makes big claims but this product is not suitable for acne prone skin.Garnier Pure Active might be a better choice when compared this face wash.
3)Synthetic wax is mildly comedogenic can also break some folks.
4)This product did break me out.
5)Salicylic acid might not suit every one.
6)The composition of Salicylic acid is not mentioned.Since it is in the end of ingredient list,I think it is very low and not enough to fight acne.
7)It has a strong artificial fragrance which I did not like.
For once I would really appreciate if companies make non-comeodgenic products meant for acne prone skin. I do not understand how these companies market comeodgenic products as products for acne prone skin.Dealing with acne is such tough battle.Last thing we want is products which cause more acne.I just bought it to try out but it did break me out.I had a similar experience with Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser which also broke me out despite false claims.So disappointed with this product.It could work for normal skin folks but not for acne prone skin folks.For this price pharmaceutical face washes like Saslic from Cipla ,AHA Glow from Torrent Pharma are much much better options!
