Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel

With my skin being in the “always oily” category for as long as I can remember, I am forever browsing facial cleansers.  I like to try new things (duh) but it also seems like my face will respond to a cleanser and then…it just doesn’t.  So switching it up now and then is a good thing.  I tested the new Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel recently and it has been very nice for my oily skin.

Garnier Shine Control Gel ReviewGarnier sets out to remove excess oil and mattify the skin with this new oil-free cleanser that includes Charcoal Powder to draw out impurities.  I feel like it really does a good job of keeping oil at bay and providing a more matte finish to skin after cleansing.  The only issue I have is with the Menthol in this cleanser.  While it does provide a cooling effect on the skin that could be nice at times, I didn’t love the feeling when it made its way to my lips.  I love the pump bottle and it is perfect for use in the shower so what I ended up doing was just being extra careful around the lip area.  I don’t know why it bugged me so much, I’m sure lots of people won’t be bothered by the menthol at all.

Overall, Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel is perfect for my in-shower facial cleansing, when I take care to keep it off my lip area.
