I noticed that my skin wasn’t looking too hot and observing some icky blackheads on my nose and chin I knew I had to get something to fix this gross problem!
Recommend this product?
Walking down the face wash isle in my local Wal-Mart trying to decide which product to buy Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Scrub jumped out at me, with its purple squeeze tube and title “blackhead clearing scrub”. I thought why not, it says it will start clearing blackheads in just 2 days. Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Scrub, Salicylic Acid Acne Medication 5oz 141 G has a special formula containing beads to gently exfoliate your skin´s surface and to stop new blackheads from forming! This is great just what I need! It’s going to work I can feel it, or so I hoped! At the checkout stand I thought that this is going to be the best 6 bucks I’ve ever spent.
That night I was so excited to use Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Scrub, I just couldn’t wait to get rid of all the nasty blackheads growing on my face! I began by reading the instructions, Wet face; gently massage product all over face for 20-30 seconds, avoiding eye area; Rinse thoroughly and pat dry, easy as can be, let the magic begin. The scrub is a white paste consistency with lots of small blue bead balls in it. The wash has a fresh, clean smell that is not overpowering. It does contain a little bit of a chemical smell I guess but just slightly.
The active ingredient is two percent Salicylic Acid, which is used especially for treating blackheads and whiteheads. The other ingredients are; Microcrystalline Wax, Steareth 21, Polysorbate 60, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance (Parfum), Menthyl Lactate, Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Jojoba Esters.
After my first use I felt certain it was going to work as long as I used it daily… except i have been using this product for quite some time now, almost 2 months. Although I have been using it daily as recommended I have not seen a huge improvement on my skin like I wanted. There are fewer blackheads, but they are still there and still as unpleasant as ever! Why won’t they just go away and leave my poor face alone? Disappointed in deed, can’t believe it didn’t work. (Sad face) Although it did exfoliate my skin it did a horrible job at doing what it was supposed to do, clearing blackheads.
Needless to say I am not going to be buying this again. Still looking to get rid of those annoying little blackheads.
