Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub:

Been using this for a month because the store I went to was out of the Biore charcoal scrub. Same smooth tingly skin effect but it's causing my skin to break out. To make sure it was the product I didn't use it for a week and the day after I used it again I have new pimples. My skin has always been pretty clear besides the blackheads on my nose and chin and this product hardly made a difference. I tried to leave a review on Garnier's website but was moderated out. Now I'll never use this brand, period, seeing as they cannot handle criticism and only give their customers hand picked reviews that make them look better.

      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub:

      This is a great everyday scrub. It's not overly abrasive and it's slowly making a difference with my huge pores on and around my nose.

              Asked on 8/9/2017 by Meggiemeg from West Valley Utah

              1 answer

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Hi Meggiemeg! In 1 use, unclogs pores and smoothes skin. After 1 week, pores are diminished and complexion is clear. If you have oily skin, we recommend using this product 2-3 times per week. If you have dry skin we recommend using it 1-2 times per week. For dry, sensitive skin you may want to reach for a gentle cleanser. Two examples of gentle yet effective products are Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Invigorating Daily Scrub and Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Balancing Gel Exfoliator. We hope this helps!

                Hello Lizeth! When using this product, skin irritation and dryness is more likely to occur if you use another topical acne medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time. We hope this information was helpful!

                Hi there Cici! This scrub does not foam when using. Rather, it serves as an exfoliator that deeply cleanses, tightens pores, and smooths skin. Massage gently, avoiding contact with eyes. Rinse face thoroughly. We hope this helps!

                The Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub deeply cleanses, tightens pores and smoothes skin. This formula with charcoal draws out blackhead-causing dirt, oil and impurities like a magnet, leaving behind cleaner skin.
