If you think the reason why I don't test or write much about "pimple zapping" products because I have perfect skin, you're wrong!
The reason why I don't test or use these types of products much is because my skin is very sensitive to Salicylic Acid and I'm allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide. Both are pimple zapping ingredients that are super effective in drying out pimples!
That's why I settle for the natural Tea Tree Oils, I've been a loyal user of The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil and have been constantly repurchasing especially if they're on sale.
So what's Garnier Pure Active Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-on doing here on my page? Well, my dearest bestfriend Mr. AMW suffers from acne the moment he was in his mid-twenties, a late-bloomer I should say! We're both been constantly finding for products that would help lessen his spots and pimples that has been constantly there for years! He's been a number 1 user of Benzoyl Peroxide made by the company Galderma but once in a while, he uses other pimple fighting products to "confuse" his acne! *laughs* We like to put it that way! :)
So a huge thanks to Mr. AMW for trying out the newest Garnier product and I'm happy to write about this because this product is inexpensive so anyone who suffers from acne may give this a try. I can't promise you it will work for all of you but it's worth the try because you don't have to shell out that much.

Mr AMW says ---
- Nice packaging, easy to use without mess.
- Has a nice cooling sensation upon application but doesn't sting.
- Scent is quite good and relaxing.
- Really effective in shrinking "new born" pimples.
- Handy, can bring this everywhere you go.
- May not work for everybody.
- Won't be as effective on huge pimples.
Mr. AMW isn't loyal with products that he doesn't see results in at least 2 weeks of usage, it has been more than a 2 months and I still see him applying this directly on his marks at night before he goes to sleep. He admittedly told me this product is effective!
- Apply directly onto and around the imperfections as soon as it starts to appear.
- This is meant for continuous application so re-apply at least 3 x a day.
- Never apply near the eye area.
- Clean the metal ball every now and then.
- Unsure if you're allergic to one of the ingredients? Do a 12hour patch test on a spot that's not too visible to people around you.
- Never share the same cooling-roll on with others.
- Once you massage this Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-on directly on spots, try not to press too hard! Always be gentle with your skin.
- If you have severe case of acne, please have it checked with a dermatologist.

Product photo and usage
Garnier Pure Active Anti-imperfections cooling roll-on is housed the same packaging of Garnier BB Eye Roll-On and Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On. If you own at least 2 of the products mentioned, be very careful if you reach out for these products and check before you apply! It would sting if you apply the Anti-Imperfections Cooling Roll-On on your undereye area.
Mr. AMW's spots that has dried out after constant usage.
We're hoping it would continuously remove red marks/spots.
Before I end this post, I want to share that Mr. AMW has one of the best looking skin during our grade school and high school years, everyone have been complimenting on how great his skin was and I myself can't help but stare at his skin each time he talks to me. I have to admit, it's also one of the many reasons why I find him physically attractive (aside from his smile, his eyes, etc..). When we graduated in College, that's the time he started to get all these spots and marks that literally covered his whole face (no joke) and it pains me even more to see it on someone you love. I'm proud to share that Mr. AMW did his part, he went to certified dermatologists (lots of them) and tried on different treatments, in the process, he didn't let his pimple marks dampen his confidence and it never bothered me that his face was covered with marks as his great personality shines through, I see none of the marks but a wonderful, handome-looking man who has always been there for me during my ups and downs! Again, we're still struggling to find ways for his acne to clear up but it isn't the center of our issues, life is too short to worry on marks but we just have to accept it, find ways to heal it and move on.
