I have never really been a fan of a physical exfoliant ie scrubs like this. But I am have been noticing these pesky blackheads on my nose recently and thought I would give this scrub a try as it's very popular among lots of beauty/skincare bloggers. First I tried using it daily as recommended. Even though it got rid of the blackheads I felt it was a little too drying for my dehydrated skin. So upon recommendation from a friend I started using it as a 1 minute mask once or twice a week. I would apply and then wait a minute and scrub it gently off. And I think that's the best way for me to use it. Salicylic acid is an amazing ingredient that keeps break outs at bay and keeps the pore clean. But like most actives it does make you a little sensitive to the sun. However this product contains titanium dioxide which is a great at protecting me against UV rays. I feel instantly refreshed and clean after using this scrub. All in all I am pleased with this scrub when I use it as a one minute mask instead of daily as recommended.
A little drying.
