Review: Garnier Nutri-Pure Microbead Cream Scrub

I was in the market for a new face-wash because the ones I had were simply NOT cutting it. I have the tendency to extract pores pretty frequently around the sides of my nose, which can sometimes turn that area into a flaky mess. (And let me tell you, putting foundation on top of those flakes is pure, magnifying disaster. Flashback: 10th grade, I sat eating lunch with my crush.
Him: "Are you wearing face makeup?"
Me: "Yes... Why?"
Him: "I can see it."
That was pretty much the end of that dream and my most mortifying makeup moment.)

Anyway, I was in CVS and I picked up Garnier Nutri-Pure Microbead Scrub ($6.49). It's a cream cleanser based scrub that detoxifies without drying. Oil-free, non-comedogenic, non-allergenic and gentle. Contains "Skin Nutrient" which includes Vitamin E + Grape Extract to detoxify, Vitamin B5 to infuse skin with moisture without overdrying and Green Leaf Extract to soothe and refresh.

I was truly amazed to see this work after using it for the first time. I'd tried all my exfoliating options to rid the dead flaky skin on my nose, and MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator AND Prescriptives Instant Gratification did nothing. This cleansing scrub does its exfoliating duty while being gentle enough to use every day.

Face Candy Grade: A+

I have been using garnier products for about two years now and I am very satisfied with the result to my skin. Same with garnier facial scrub. Great product review by the way.

I understand where you're coming from. I tried all sorts of expensive exfoliators until I discovered how amazing St. Ives Apricot Scrub ($3.99)is.

I'm loving the Garnier eye roll-on so I might try this one out.
