Review: Garnier Fresh Essentials Cleansing Gel Wash

I have been using the Garnier Fresh Essentials cleansing gel wash for a year now and I'm quite pleased with it. This product is for people with a normal and combination skin. It's a gel wash which you can use daily. The main active ingredient of this product is the grape extract.

What does it promise?
This face wash is supposed to remove impurities as well as traces of make-up in order to reveal a clean and fresh looking skin. Besides, there is no soap in this product.

There is 150 ml in one tube. You can use one tube for longer than a half year so €4.99 for this product aint that expensive.

The gel and scent
The product itself is a thick transparent gel. It has a nice grape scent and foams up to create lather which leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed. (see picture, I didn't add water there.)

Ingredients; skip this if you're not interested
Aqua/ Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, PEG-8, Coco-Betaine, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Acer Saccharinum Extract/ Sugar Maple Extract, Acrylates/ Steareth-20 Methacrylate Copolymer, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylparaben, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Extract/ Orange Fruit Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum Peel Extract/ Lemon Peel Extract, Ethylparaben, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Isobutylparaben, Linalool, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethnol, Propylparaben, Pyrus Malus Water/ Apple Fruit Water, Saccharum Officinarum Extract/ Sugar Cane Extract, Salicylic Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Triethanolamine, Vaccinium Myrtillus Extract/ Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract, Vitis Vinifera Extract/ Grape Fruit Extract, Parfum/ Fragrance.

My opinion
♥ Repurchase? No
It's a good product. You only need a small amount of the product and it creates enough foam to clean your whole face. I like the grape scent of the gel. It's a pity that it doesn't remove ALL of my make up on my face. I normally use waterproof make up, so those are a bit more difficult to remove. After patting dry my face with a cotton pad I will still see traces of my Bobbi Brown eyeliner and foundation. (I won't have this problem when I use make up remover beforehand.) However, my skin does feel fresh and soft after using this, but also a bit dry and it gives me a stretch feeling. I don't think this is suitable for people with dry skin like me =/

My rate: ♥♥♥♥♥ 3/5

    @ddollysweet, ahww.. kan gebeuren =( reageert anders op elk huid =( helaas.

    @mei, ik heb wel gelezen dat ie bij sommige mensen uitdroogt/ irriteerd. Doordat er Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS) in zit schijnt het je huid droog te maken. mja, ik heb na het gebruik van dit product geen last van gehad =) maar het verschilt per persoon ;). En over de RSS, ik stuur je via fb wel ff de code ;)

    @Suzy, ja dat dacht ik ook dat er veel apple extract in zat. Ik zie alleen apple fruit water in de ingredienten lijst o_O"
