I grabbed this product right after I got home from Boracay last June 2012. A lot of tiny zits started to appear and I just had to do something about it! My previous spot corrector was working out for me but unfortunately, I left it in Iligan. Now of all the spot corrector out there in the Philippine market, I think the Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-on is the most advertised. So I was quick to get one. I also am a user of the Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On for almost 2 years now so I figured I might as well get another one of their products.
Hello nemo at the back!
Don't you think the name "anti-imperfections" sounded too good? We'll see about that!
And what's the secret formula?
Salicylic Acid + HerbaRepair
Salicylic Acid quickly dries out imperfections instantly.
HerbaRepair Fades marks.
Redness is reduced within 5 hours.
imperfections and marks are visibly reduced after 2 days.
It's a bit unnerving that "applications" at "Continue applications" is misspelled.
As for the packaging, it is the same as that of Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On. It uses the same metal ball.
It comes out as a really clear liquid too.
Effective. It's true that pimple is visibly reduced after a few applications.
Except for the metal ball, I love the packaging. It's so easy to bring around and quite sturdy.
Economical. It costs 199 pesos at Watsons and it lasts a really really long time!
It has a minty feel.
I don't think it speeds up the disappearance of pimple marks.
It's hard to wear make-up when I have this on.
There is noticeable peeling that a sheer foundation can't cover up.
I am not a fan of the metal roll on on this one. It makes it hard to apply the product at a specific spot only.
Some people may be allergic to Salicylic Acid, which is one of its main ingredients.
When my face got cleared up, I let a friend of mine try it for more than two weeks. He had acne-prone skin and Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-on did not help him much.
Mine actually got stolen (can you believe that?). That is why right now I am really feeling that saying "You don't know what you've got until it is gone". I miss my Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-on. I didn't give it a 5/5 rating but it actually worked for me and I love having this around. But I also want to try out other products. So my answer to this is YES I will repurchase when I run out of anti-acne products in the market that I want to try.
Thanks for reading!
