Product Review > Garnier Nutrioniste Skin Renew | The Brusher Gel Cleanser

So, to start off with I'll go ahead and say that I love this product.  I saw an ad for it in my April 2010 Cosmo or maybe it was Glamour and instantly knew I wanted to try it out.  I haven't used many Garnier products, actually I hadn't used any of their skin care/face cleansing products before I purchased The Brusher.  The only other Garnier products that I've own are the Eye Roller (which I use religiously) and the Fortifying Deep Conditioner (which I don't think work for my hair type, so I haven't repurchased since I used it up).  I, however, think that Garnier is an excellent brand with a wide variety of products to suit everyone's needs, whether it be anti-aging, ance pron skin, healthy hair, etc...

I purchased The Brusher from Wal-Mart about a week ago and have had to contain myself from using it every single day.  Since its technically an exfoliator I really try to not use it more than twice a week. You can definitely feel a difference in your skin before and after using it.  Your skin feels a little tight (but not the bad uncomfortable dry tight that some cleansers give you), but your skin feels so smooth after using it and looks very healthy.  The brush part itself is mainly what does all ther work.  Imagine 40 little tiny finger massaging your face.  It gets in places where your fingers can't quite offer enough attention to.  Your supposed to wet the brush a head of time, twist it counter clockwise, and squeeze the bottle so that the cleanser releases.  it releases right into the Bluser, so best to tilt it to about 45 degrees, this way it doesn't completely fall out of the Brusher as its being released.  You apply the Brusher to your face and massages away.  You do want to stay away from your eyes for obviously reasons, like you don't want to poke yourself in the eye or get too much of the cleanser in it.  I recommend closing your eyes as a precaution to both incidents.

The Brusher contains Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, and Green Leaf Extract.  It claims to deep clean and smooth skin after 1 use, and I agree 100% with this claim.  It even smells good, which makes it that much more appealing to use for me.  A lot of skin cleanser have really pugent smells to them and that can affect willingness to use.  The cleanser itself is a clear-ish light colored gel that suds when massaged in and rinses away very clean.

The Brusher is 5 fl oz/150 mL in size and you can purchase it from drugstores nationwide that sell Garnier products.  I purchased mines from Wal-Mart for $6 and it was well worth it.  I keep mines right in the shower with me and generally use it at night, as well as followed up but my usual moisturizer.  I find that this product really balances out my oily skin, and even when I've used it in the morning I found that my make application resulted in a much more smoother look and that overall my skin was more even.

Give it a go if your in the market for a new facial cleanser.  This one does all the work for you and is very affordable for all that it does.
