My Quest For Clearer Skin - Part 1 - Garnier Blackhead Clearing Scrub


I will be writing different parts to 'My quest for clearer skin' as recently my skin has been quite naughty and I keep breaking out with spots, also as I work around animals for 80% of my day I get quite oily skin causing blackheads YUK!

Part 1 - Garnier blackhead clearing scrub - You can buy this from various places and it retails for around the £4.00 mark.



I have been using this for over a week now and I have mixed opinions on it. The beads inside are quite large which I find quite hard to get a good scrub from them, but as this scrub contains tea tree it has a lovely cooling feel to it.....


The strange thing about this scrub is after using it and drying my face I had a hot burning sensation on my face, this did go away after 5 minutes or so but it also made my face very red, again this went down but I would definitely not recommend this for people with sensitive skin!

Overall it reduced the appearance of blackheads but did nothing for spot marks as it claims. It's a nice refreshing wash but I won't be repurchasing as the burning sensation has put me right off it. My quest continues......

Have you tried this?

  1. I've not tried this but If you're looking to clear your skin the only thing that's ever worked for me is the Body Shop teatree range. I don't know if that might be worth a shot?

    1. I havn't tried the tea tree range from The Body Shop but I have tried the Seaweed range and it was fab, unfortunatly I ran out and forgot to get some more. I will definitly test out the teat tree range!

  2. I use a great lotion from Tesco for keeping my skin clear. Its just their own brand "deep skin cleansing lotion" which to be honest isn't really a lotion but instead a really quite abrasive liquid. Despite being a bit stingy when you first put it on, its great even with sensitive skin and really drags out all the dirt and stuff from your skin so the blackhead and spot issues are sorted in one. I'd definitely suggest giving it a go, and its good and cheap which is always good. I just follow it up with some moisturiser and my skin stays all soft and I dont get dry patches any more xx

    1. Thanks for the tip Annie, I love tesco! I have used their own brand toner before and it was fab and really cheap! I will keep my eyes open for that next time I go food shopping!
