When I posted about looking for Garnier Pure Active Ambassadors a while back, I didn’t anticipate the response I received. I mean, I had my emails and my Facebook notifications popping for about a month straight filled with eager people wanting to grasp this opportunity. And when I sent out over a hundred application forms and received quite a number of them back, I did not envy the decision the Garnier team had to make – because if this was my response, I wonder how they’d cope with five times the volume.
Happy new year, everyone! In follow up to my first Garnier 3-in-1 Pure Active post, I was thinking about what Garnier really wanted to achieve with their product: they wanted you to feel clean, fresh, and your best true self – essentially giving you one less thing to worry about because you’re just being you, and that’s how I drew inspiration for these images.
When I was younger – or pretty much up until matric prelims – I had notoriously good skin by no efforts of my own. I seldom broke out, and if I did, it was just two or so pimples on or between my eyebrows. So suffice it to say, I was (and still am) pretty ignorant on skincare and beauty regimens. The most effort I put into my skin was removing my make up before bed and using a daily face wash and face cream. I didn’t use face scrubs, masks, cleanses, toners or change my products often – and I was fine in my complacency. Until my skin decided to forsake me.
