This gentle scrub immediately works two ways to not only clear out the blackheads you have now, but also to help prevent new ones from forming. First, you'll feel it tingle as its maximum strength acne medicine, Salicylic Acid, penetrates deep to eliminate blackheads by removing stubborn dirt and oil trapped inside pores. Then, you'll feel its gentle, skin-soothing microbeads exfoliate without overdrying to help stop blackheads before they start.

I have combination skin, persistent blackheads on my nose, occasional blackheads on my forehead and chin. This scrub worked really well for me. It left my face feeling squeaky clean but not overly dry. After a week, the blackheads on my forehead and chin were gone, and the ones on my nose became fewer and less visible. The smell isn't too strong. But I found that the Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Astringent worked better than the scrub. With daily use, the astringent keeps me mostly blackhead-free. Now I just pair a cheaper face wash with the astringent. Because I have combination skin, I only use the astringent on my oily zones so that I don't overdry my cheeks and eye area.
