My take on Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub:
Packaging: The scrub comes in a see-through plastic tube with flip cap. It is completely weightless and easy to carry around anywhere. The flip cap is tight enough and helps to get the product out of the tube without any mess. The tube has various details about the product mentioned on its back side which includes full ingredient list, usage directions and expiry date.
Texture & Colour: Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub is an off white gel based scrub with tiny orange colored microbeads in it which are quite gentle on the skin. The scrub has a semi-runny consistency and foams up mildly upon scrubbing.
Fragrance: I can’t recollect any adjective to explain the fragrance but it’s kind of sweet smelling not bothering as it wanes after wash.
My Experience: First of all, since the scrub has very soft granule particles, it is not at all abrasive on the skin. That’s the biggest plus of this product; unlike other physical scrubs that have coarser particles. The scrub is very much gentle, very much effective in exfoliating and can be very well used on daily basis as claimed. The scrub can be used by all skin types, even on pimple prone face, such is the texture of this.
Coming to the Blackhead Eliminating part; in one usage this product doesn’t bring miracle on skin. But with continuous usage you can definitely see a difference in whitehead and blackhead removal, although it doesn’t not completely help to remove stubborn ones. Steaming the face or wiping the face with a warm towel before using this scrub gives much better results of eliminating blackheads.
The scrub doesn’t dry out the skin and it does the job of exfoliating and cleaning the face efficiently. As it lathers up well, it also serves the purpose of face wash giving a refreshed feel.
Another plus of this product; It contains Salicylic acid which is a peeling agent and also used in treatment of acne. However it is not suggested to use scrubs on active acne areas. The scrub never caused me any new breakouts.
In short, skin feels soft, squeaky clean, refreshing with the use of this mild gentle scrub. And with regular usage one can keep formation of new blackheads at bay.
