Goodbye Blackheads Thanks To Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub

Our weather has been hot and humid these days. A little humidity can be a good thing for keeping your skin soft and hydrated. But when the water in the air tops 50 percent or more, it can leave your complexion sweaty and shiny and can even lead to breakouts.

Thus the perfect skincare products to make or maintain your skin healthy and glowing is by using Neutrogena Deep Clean Skin Care. It offers variety products that suits different kind of skin condition such as normal, dry and oily. Thanks to Neutrogena I've got to try these products Cleansing Oil To Foam, Foaming Cleaser and Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub myself. From all the three products given I really love Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub.

I have a combination skin with blackheads/whiteheads and open pores. With the unpredictable weather, the heat and humidity had worsened the situation. I tried many scrubs in the past to tackle these problems and to keep my skin clean and clear but it doesn't works wonders for my skin. With Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub doesn’t just fight blackheads, it helps eliminate them for clearer, smoother skin. This gentle scrub immediately works two ways to not only clear out the blackheads, but also to help prevent new ones from forming.

At first, you will feel it tingles as its maximum strength acne medicine, Salicylic Acid, penetrates deep to eliminate blackheads by removing stubborn dirt and oil trapped inside pores. Then, you’ll feel it's gentle, skin-soothing micro beads exfoliate without overdrying to help stop blackheads before they even start.

The scrub forms very mild lather and wash off easily with few splashing of water without leaving any slippery feeling. It removes dead skin cells, impurities and extract dust from clogged pores. It controls oil secretion up to certain extent. I use it for a minute every alternate day. After using this scrub, my skin feels soft, clear and refreshed. It doesn't make my skin dry or stretchy even it is very hydrating and suitable for dry skin too. It is non-comedogenic and dermatologist and allergy tested.

After using it for a week, I think this is the scrub which I can use without any guilt of overdoing. As you can see, the scrub has some orange, round granules and tiny white granules concentrated enough in the entire scrub. The base itself doesn’t feel like soapy, but rather creamy and mild. Surprisingly my clogged pores have reduced up to 65%, and I love the soft feel of the skin after using this scrub.

What it contains:
  • Beta hydroxyl acid formula – cleans dirt and excessive oil
  • Skin-conditioning beads – condition and soothe skin
  • Blackhead Fighting Complex – penetrates deep into pores to remove dead skin cells to help eliminate blackheads
  • Cedarwood extract and moisturizer – help strengthen the skin’s natural water and oil balance, and prevent new blackheads from forming with continuous use

How to use:

As a daily cleanser, squeeze a pea-size amount of the Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub onto your palm. Add a little water to form a lather and gently massage over the face. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Can be used everyday.

Overall Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub is a nice concentrated yet mild scrub for daily use for sensitive, oily or acne prone skin. Your face will feel rejuvanated and clean when the day's impurities are removed from your skin. This scrub leaves the skin soft, reduces clogged pores, and skin is visibly clearer for me. I recommend this scrub to be used regularly!
