I am 39 and have very dry skin, but I am still suffering from hormonal acne that time of the month on my jaw area and blackheads. I read that using Salicylic acid is the best way to combat both of these problems, especially the blackheads.
I have tried scrubbing them, using pore strips, and masks, but nothing really gets them all. I bought this after reading about the acid and hearing Wayne Goss on Youtube mention it. I also watched several dermatologists recommend it for blackheads as the best way to deal with them.
I was skeptical but after a week I noticed them coming up (gross I know) and I could wash them off. Funny thing was, I thought it was the beads and not the actual blackheads coming up lol. Left my pores large but I don’t care, they are clear now. I use this with my Olay Brush that is a dupe for Clarisonic and wow. I have gone through the entire tube now a month later and my blackheads are all about gone.
This stuff is crazy good for being $3. It’s very creamy and does not dry the skin out or irritate me. It has tiny exfoliating beads that are not harsh at all. I have never tried the actual brand for this, Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrub, but I will be buying that now since I am done with this to see if it’s even more effective. I hope this helps anyone looking for a good scrub for blackheads.
