    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub:

    This is the first scrub I've used that actually gets rid of blackheads, doesn't dry my skin out, and doesn't make me break out! I use it every other day and have been for weeks. It leaves your skin feeling so soft. Definitely going to part of my long term skin care routine.

    So good!

    By Mely

    from New York, New York

    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub:

    This really got rid of my blackheads, especially around my nose. The salicylic acid helped with breakouts too. All around great buy! It has a cologne scent but it's not that strong. It does a good job of exfoliating the skin but be careful because the tiny beads always managed to get in my eyes and it's so uncomfortable. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, I still highly recommend it though!

      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.

      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!

        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.

        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.

            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.

          • 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!
