Garancia Pscht Magique – Do you remember foam parties?

Once again I am going to embarrass myself by sharing memories of long gone times, times when a few of you weren’t even born yet, but I was already out there, wearing blue glitter eyeshadow and way too dark a foundation, ready for a fun Saturday night out!

It was the age of foam parties, and even though I just attended one in my „wild young days“, they were all the rage.

You basically entered a big room that got covered in foam, there was a lot of music, very little clothing and everything turned wet and slippery. Sounds strange? I agree, but it was actually fun in a very strange way.

Now the product I am going to talk about today has absolutely nothing in common with trashy mid-nineties foam parties. Except that it is a foam and that it feels kind of strange, but in a funny way.

It is the Garancia Pscht Magique New Skin and is a cleanser, marketed as micro peeling treatment.

 

What Garancia claims:

Inspired by Japanese* beauty rituals to purify the skin, Garancia Pschtt Magic® is a micropeeling treatment that contains no abrasive particles, no glycolic acid and works in 30 seconds flat.

It’s magic! It transforms the quality of your skin texture day in day out. Containing soap-free plant-based cleansing agents, it is specifically designed to suit sensitive skin. It replaces your usual skin cleansing product and forms the first step of your morning beauty routine!

Garancia Pschtt Magic New Skin® envelops your skin in a soft cloud of ultra-smooth mousse that acts in seconds, without abrasive particles or rubbing involved. Its active ingredients „melt“ the dead cells and give the skin the ability to regenerate itself from the inside out

Facts:

Prize and size

One bottle, consisting of an air-tight container with a pump, contains 100 ml and retails for 30,50 € here. My super cute shiny packaging is actually a ten year limited edition one, so the bottles you may come across might look different. I have been using it consistently for more than three months and it still feels like there is a lot of product left.

Texture and smell

As to be expected, the product comes out of the pump a foam, a little firmer than your usual one and very easy to apply to your face. I didn’t notice any particular smell. One pump was enough for my whole face, one and a half were needed for face and neck.

Application and effects

When applied to the skin, you will start to feel the faintest tingling  sensation, as if lots of small air bubbles would pop against your skin. It is a very pleasant sensation, one that brought a smile to my face after application, and lasts for around two minutes. The foam slowly diminishes and can be rinsed off or taken off with a wash cloth easily.

Now I didn’t experience a „magical transformation“ of my skin´s texture, but I did feel it was a refreshing and very gentle cleanse that surely helped in getting rid of dead skin cells and congestion.

 

Favorable ingredients:

  • Glycerin: Moisturizing
  • Lemon Fruit Water: Rich in Vitamin C, brightening
  • Rosa Damascene Flower Water: Toning, improves texture
  • Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water: Antioxydant, anti-inflammatory, firming
  • Witch Hazel Water: Salicylic Acid (BHA), refining skin texture, anti-acneic
  • Camelia Sinensis Leaf Water: anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory
  • Cucumber Fruit Extract: Vitamin C and A, texturizing, fighting hyper pigmentation, toning
  • Bacillus Ferment: Firming, anti-oxidant

Unfavorable Ingredients:

  •  Fragrance (last on the ingredient list)

 

Does it live up to its claims?

Most of them.

I don’t buy into magical transformations, so I wouldn’t agree on this one, but it sure helps in increasing cell turnover and removing congestions while being very gentle and free from abrasive particles.

 

Will I rebuy?

No.

As someone with a firm love for acid exfoliants, I don’t feel like I need another product to micro exfoliate, and even though I really enjoy the uniqueness, I feel it is more suited to a different skin type than mine.

 

Who do I recommend it to?

If you have sensitive skin and want to try a very gentle way of exfoliation, this one is great.

If you are into unique textures and a little bit of magic, this is a fun and effective product to try.

If you want an quick and easy step towards brighter skin, give it a go.

 

Do you know that product?

And have you ever attended a foam party?

 

Oh, and have you seen yesterdays bonus video?

  • I had this a while ago. Finished the whole thing and really did love it.

    • I will finish it as well, it is lovely. But it takes a lot to make me repurchase a product, spoiled skincare brat that I am.

  • Good old times? I haven’t gone to any foam party, tbh I just didn’t like the idea of getting wet and having to leave the party like that so I am all fine with non wet parties! I haven’t seen it before, however I don’t believe in magic!

    • I don’t think it is one of the things you really had to do. Not sure if I would go to another one either.

  • I’ve heard a lot about this one and always found it intriguing… I love a bit of magic! 😉
    I’ve been to quite a lot of parties in my „wild young days“, but never to a foam party. For some reason they never really appealed to me.

        • Haha, yes. I don’t think I could keep up with my party schedule these days as well.

  • Amazing photos! This sounds quite good, definitely worth the try!

    I have quite sensitive skin in winter so this sounds like it could be lovely for me at that time of year. Also I’m still gutted I never made it to a foam party on any of my chavvy holidays when I was younger 😉

    Yes I do remember the foam parties. They were all of the rage and I attended a few back in the day. thanks for bringing back the memories. Usually facial foams are a bit drying but this one seems to be better for sensitive skin like mine.

    • Many facial foams contain sulphates, which are drying, but this one doesn´t. I try to avoid anything with sulphates in it.

  • Your reviews are always so well-written, love it! Not too keen on foam products though, even though they’re fun for a change! Xx

    • This one is sulphate free, so it is not drying like your usual foam. That makes a big difference.

  • OMG, thanks for reminding me about the foam parties, it was huge in Malaysia in the early 2000 as the trend just arrived there. I must say I’ve never been to one though, I didn’t feel comfortable with all the foams and I felt it wasn’t hygienic at all. LOL! This sounds interesting but again, this is not a brand that I am familiar with and this is the first time I’m reading about it.

    • It is a French brand, it was one of the products Lulle recommended I pick up when I was in France, I haven’t seen it in Germany anywhere.

  • I’ve never heard of a foam party but they sound hilariously fun! I’ve never heard of this brand but the product sounds pretty cool, it’s a shame you’re not repurchasing it! x

    • You are too young to have experienced them. Maybe it is a trend that will come back.

  • I never went to a foam party. I wanted to because most of my friends did. I was too busy working. This sounds great for people with sensitive skin!

    • I think it is great for sensitive skins. Foam parties probably not that much. Maybe they will come back with the 90ies revival that is about to happen sometime soon. Would you go these days?

  • Haha, foam parties! I forgot about those. Thanks for another thorough review.

    • They sound more fun than they actually are. And this foam isn´t foamy as in drying, not in the slightest.

  • I’m glad you enjoyed it! I agree that it’s not really an exfoliant, but I love it as a cleanser!
    I’ve never been to a foam party myself, but I know my hubby did, and he actually slipped on the wet floor and got a bad cut on his chin. He had to get stitches!

  • I use a few Asian Beauty products that provide similar gentle exfoliation benefits but they’re creamy so I have to say that the bubbling aspect of this intrigues me.

  • I’ve never attended a foam party, but this product sounds lovely! My skin is too sensitive for regular acid exfoliators so this could be perfect for me, apart from the perfume. But if it’s the last thing on the list I might be ok. Great review!

    • I think you can only get it in France, but I would recommend trying it.

  • How did I not know about foam parties??? And now they’re all gone…

    Never heard of this product but I do prefer my hard working chemical exfoliators so probably this would be too gentle for me 🙂 x

    This one sounds really interesting with the sensations on your face! Shame it’s not ideal for you though.

    • This is not you regular foam cleanser, as many of them can be quite drying.

  • Well I can honestly say that I’ve never attended a foam party in my life. Never knew such a thing existed. Then again I never attended any type of party because I was too busy being a homebody lol.

    The product does sound like it would be great for sensitive skin types.

    • I really think it would be a great exfoliant for sensitive skins.

  • I love the idea of a foaming masque, especially the little bubbles.

  • Wow what a fun sounding product! thanks for sharing

  • This sounds like a good product, but I personally like a little bit of exfoliation in my routine, where I can actually feel my skin being cleansed with little gritty bits (does that make sense?!) I don’t think I would be fully satisfied with using this product…

    This Garancia Pschtt magic would be for me, I guess, because I like glycerin and I have sensitive skin. I liked that it doesn’t have any particular scent and also, that it is a firmer foam. And that it cleanses skin and exfoliates it in a gentle way! By the way, I have heard, but never went to a foam party 🙂

Also, I’m quite younger, but I have to say I’ve been to a foam party 😀 5 years ago, I just turned 18 and we went on a school trip to Spain… Not as exciting as we all thought 😀 xx

        Ich finde es zum einen immer noch cool, dass Du auf einer solchen Party warst und außerdem eine wieder sehr geniale Blogeinführung! Und danke, dass Du findest, ich habe modisches Gespür – allerdings glaube ich immer noch nicht, dass Du da keinen Geschmack hast. Denn wer sich so perfekt schminken kann wie Du muss einfach auch ein tolles Gespür für Mode haben!

        • Ich gebe mir Mühe. Um ehrlich zu sein, habe ich in den zwei Schwangerschaften mehr Wert auf Bequemlichkeit als auf Chic gelegt.

    I have been binge-watching your videos whilst cleaning today, hon 🙂 Loved every minute. Got work done and enjoyed your reviews & chit chat. Astor review was fab even though it slowed me down as I had to peek at every shade 😀 I have never been to a foam party but I remember it used to be a thing 🙂 The product’s packaging looks pretty cool, too bad it didn’t have the wow-factor about it.

  • Oh man – I always wanted to go to a foam party. When I started at college we had a paint party which was very similar… except a lot more difficult to get out of your hair. This product looks neat and sounds cool, but I don’t think I’d be running out to pick it up! Thanks for the review 🙂

    • That reminds me of the color runs that have been around lately. I really want to do that one! But I can imagine that getting things out of your hair will be challenging to say the least.

  • This sounds like a really interesting product but I’ve never been a foam fan. I much prefer gel or balm exfoliants!
