Didn't work for me

By 

from Nottingham

Comments about blackhead clearing pore control scrub:

I bought this product along with the usual but dermalogica decided to give me the sample when I bought it. Since first used, every time I get more breakouts. My skin was improving as I used dermalogica products but this turned my skin back to how it was in the past.

I have been using this for years, it is such good value for money and it keeps my skin so clear! It smells great too! I love that it isn't as 'cakey' as most scrubs, plus it makes a great mask!

Comments about blackhead clearing pore control scrub:

I've been using this product for 3 months now with zero results. Also it smells pretty bad. I usually love Dermalogica products, but this one really missed the mark for me.

Great for sensitive skin

By

Comments about blackhead clearing pore control scrub:

My 12 year old son really struggles with acne and large pores with stubborn blackheads. I tried my exfoliators on him as part of at-home weekend "facials." They were too harsh for him and he had little red bumps afterward. But he is able to use the Clear Start scrub with no problem, and uses it regularly because he likes the feel of it (yahoo)! It reduces oiliness, for him doesn't get rid of the blackheads completely, but does seem to shrink them and make them less noticeable.
