Blackheads result when excess oil combines with dead skin cells to block the pore and widen the opening. This blockage reacts with oxygen to stimulate pigment which gives it the typical black colour. Once the blackhead is removed it may leave open pores behind.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub is specially designed for blackhead-prone skin. Developed with dermatologists, the formula is clinically proven to:
• Help eliminate blackheads from day one – When used twice daily, this creamy scrub with exfoliating micro-beads helps unclog pores, remove existing blackheads and prevent new ones forming
• Help tighten pores – Enriched with an astringent agent, it helps to purify and tighten pores so that they appear less visible from day one.
Availability: Selected Clicks, Dis-Chem, Foschini and PnP stores.
What we say:
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating Scrub is an absolute winner in my books. The name definitely does the product great justice as your skin looks clear and blackheads are minimised in just two short weeks. It is a moderately priced item available through most department stores, pharmacies and supermarkets. It comes in a plastic squeeze tube with a flip top lid. The design in orange, red, black and silver on white, is vivid, pleasant and eye-catching. The formulation is creamy and contains salicylic acid with fine brown beads making it super gentle yet effective in eliminating blackheads with continuous use. A tiny drop of the scrub creates a bit of foam that you can feel penetrating pores to deeply cleanse skin. The soft beads gently exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and reveal healthy, radiant, glowing skin. The beads are not rough or harsh so it is great for sensitive or aggravated skin too. The scrub does not strip skin of its moisture and even the delicate citrus fragrance did not cause me to break out. Overall it does a good job of thoroughly cleansing skin without over-drying it.
I was given Neutrogena’s Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub to test. The first thing you notice when opening the lid is the fragrance – it’s a lovely fruity smell but not overpowering at all. The scrub itself has a creamy consistency with tiny micro-beads, which are said to remove blackheads as well as trapped dirt and oil.
I noticed a difference almost immediately, I normally get breakouts around my chin area and blackheads on my nose and after the first application the majority of the blackheads on my nose were gone. After the second application, they were all gone and a few weeks later, I still don’t have any. After use it leaves your skin feeling clean and moisturised which is a great thing.
Due to my combination skin and sporadic outbreaks, this product is definitely recommended and I will definitely be purchasing it on an ongoing basis.
Thank you BeautySouthAfrica for sending me the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub. I really needed it! I received this product and started using it straight away. For days I have been using it and already I’ve noticed results. The smell is good, it does not have a strong smell at all. The packaging is great, I love the flip-top caps, so no losing the caps and also you can use it sparingly as the hoe is little. It is very soft and easy to open. The size is reasonable, I think it will last a long time, even though I use it every morning and evening. My skin feels very clean and refreshed! It is definitely helping the blackheads on the sides of my nose. My daughter even noticed the difference in my skin. It is definitely fulfilling the promise of the product, eliminating blackheads! I have a combination skin and I think it will work on all skin types and age groups. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to prevent and get rid of blackheads. My skin feels so much smoother and softer!!! I would definitely buy this product!!!
