    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub:

    I'm 19 and one of my goals for when I turn 20 is to "try" to get a hold of my skin. Get a solid skin care routine going and have my life right, simple. My acne is not as bad as it use to be, but I still have some remaining scars, enlarged pores, and some pimples every now and then. I'm a huge grease ball, 3pm I am shining. But this product here....this product here! After one wash I could tell a difference. It left my skin feeling so clean and fresh like it buffed away impurities. It did not "over clean" my face either! My skin felt soft and after my evening moisturizer, it was like butter.

    Love this!

    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub:

    I don't use face wash everyday more 2-3 times a week. I really like this stuff it clears my face and doesn't over dry it. I know it says for oily skin specifically but I found this works for most skin types.. I have combination skin.. my sister has dry non oily skin and uses this too. I would recommend this for sure!

      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub:

      Soooo I like to switch up my face scrubs every once and a while and I chose this one. I'm glad I did. It may not work on everyone but it did minimize my pores and eliminate a lot of small bumps you just can't do anything about. Albeit, I don't have blackheads but realistically you can only expect the scrub to do so much. Had it get rid of everyone blackheads then it would be worth way more that 6 dollars.

      The best I ever had!!! ;)

      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub:

      I bought this about a month ago to add to my normal skin care routine and I have not had any pimples since!! (I usually blemishes get them in my T-Zone.) My skin is clear and glowing. My one pointer is to not use it around the eyes (eye bags and lids) as it has salicylic acid and can be drying. I use this product 4-6 times a week and would recommend this to anyone looking to exfoliate and clear their skin.

      I bought this product 3 weeks ago, and I use it every night. It hasn't helped my skin at all. Not sure what it's suppose to do, but it hasn't helped me at all. I really thought that I had found what I needed.

      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.

          Hi Roop! Since these products both provide a deep clean, we'd suggest alternating between the 2-in-1 Cleanser and the Scrub for best results! We hope this helps.

        When will i start seeing results? Do i use this daily and will this help woth my acne along with my pores?
        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!

          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!
