    Wow great article! I struggle a lot with blackheads, but i have a really dry skin as well so most products dry my skin out so much… The Oxy 10 with Benzoyl sounds like it would work great for me and it’s in a good price range as well… I am also soo excited about the Revlon Youth FX products. I have seen it a lot on social media!!
