El'view: Clean and Clear - Blackhead Clearing Scrub

Claims: Treats acne and clears blackheads. It gently exfoliates and removes dirt and impurities. It contains salicylic acid acne medication and is recommended for daily use.

Price: anywhere between $5-10

Pros: Clears blackheads away. Small grains helps remove the top layer of dirt. Has a nice creamy texture to it.

Cons: Smells a bit like medication. Dries up the skin a bit. Breaks me out through consecutive uses.

Overall: Bare in mind that I have combination-oily skin and my t-zone is the most oiliest spots. During the change of seasons, my cheeks and the areas around my mouth are extremely dry. So, with that said I'm not really lovin' this product. I mean, it's more of a love and hate relationship with this. Although it's recommended for daily use, I break out using this product on consecutive days. Therefore, my solution is not to use it so often. I would have to use it once or twice a week max. But, I do like how it clears away my blackheads. I see a difference after each time I use it. I like using the scrub on my nose a lot since that's where majority of my blackheads are. Since I don't love this product so much, I do tend to neglect it. So, now I use it whenever I have a special event or I see that my blackheads are crazy visible. This product does leave my face a bit dry after I use it since it strips away oil and dirt. Most likely I won't re-purchase it.

  2. This didn't work for me either. I find that their products are overly drying. Maybe try the Biore face wash?
