Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Scrub - Does it Work?


Lately I've noticed the increase of blackheads around my nose and nostril area in general. I don't know what's causing them, whether it's a product I'm using or just a natural change in my body - but shifting them is proving to be a real struggle. I've tried blackhead remover strips which worked the first few times but I think the packet I have now is a little old and it's not having quite the same effect. I then purchased the Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Scrub. The product is a foamy/creamy based formula that has small blue beads in that are meant to help exfoliate your skin and I guess remove blackheads.
Initial Reaction
I've been using this on and off for a few weeks now and I haven't really seen a huge difference in the amount of blackheads on my nose. It has removed some, I can't say it doesn't work at all. But personally, I was hoping for it to clear around 90% of my blackheads.

Daily - Morning & Evening
I've tried using this scrub daily too and there is a small difference in the amount of blackheads but they haven't been completely eliminated. I know that their probably isn't many products that will make your blackheads vanish, but I hoped that this would lead to a better result. I find that it worked better on the blackheads on the top of my nose and not so much on my nostrils area - where I find my blackheads are actually worse. I use this scrub all over my face, but spend a little more time on my nose area and on my chin where my skin can sometimes get a little rough.
Final Impression
I really like this product for exfoliating my skin in general. I find that it does help remove the dry skin cells on my chin line and around the nostrils. I do find it can irritate my skin slightly, I've noticed that I've been getting a lot more breakouts around the bottom half of my face - but I don't know if that's entirely due to this product. I like that it gives a nice fresh feeling to the face and it makes me feel squeaky clean. But regarding a product that is designed specifically to remove blackheads, I'm not sure it's the best product out there!

  1. I've tried this product as I have quite a few blackheads on my nose and nothing. It doesn't help at all. Not a fan of Clean & Clear anyways :(

    1. Ah no! I'm sorry to hear that - I do agree that it's not the best at removing blackheads. I prefer it as a general exfoliating product! I hope you find something that works better soon :)
