Blackheads are something that most of us experience – and absolutely hate! It’s frustrating when you spend a lot of time on your skincare routine and have a pimple-free face, but still have those irritating blackheads lurking around places like your nose or chin. Lately, I’ve been trying out the Simple Spotless Skin Blackhead Eliminating Face Scrub to try and help me fight the blackheads on my nose.
Now, just a quick disclaimer: I am the face of Simple skincare, but Simple never, ever ask me to feature their products on my own blog or YouTube channel. The reason I am talking about this product today is because, well, it works!
The firs time I tried the scrub, I was wondering how many of my blackheads it could really clear up – after the first use I thought I could see a difference, and after about a week I absolutely had much less of a blackhead problem than before! I used the scrub all over my face as a deep cleanse, but focussed particularly on my nose. The blackheads aren’t completely gone, but there are far, far fewer than before!
So, how does it work?
The scrub contains ‘Spot Fighting Ingredients’ like Zinc PCA, Chamomile and Witch Hazel – they help to absorb oil, sooth the skin and tighten pores respectively. The natural antibacterial, Phytosphingosine, helps to fight not only blackheads but spots too (which many of you tell me you have trouble with).
Other scrubs I have used in the past have tended to irritate my skin, but because this is by Simple, there is no perfume or colour in the scrub which keeps my skin calm.
I know that Simple is not available in every country, but I can only be honest about the products I genuinely use.
I hope that this post can help those of you affected by blackheads start to try and combat them!
