    Best for blackheads

    I dont get acne (well maye a pimple once in a while) but a lot of black heads what ive noticed works the best with black heads are the OXY PADS with 2% Salyic acid in it. I only get the black heads on my nose and the skin next to my nose. I still get them but it takes care of a lot of them. If any one else has advice on blackheads please talk about what you have used.

    Re: Best for blackheads

    you know something, i have a similar situation.

    some blackeads in the nose zone and pimples once in a while, most of them not very annoying.

    but i find the blackheads to be disgusting and any attempt of taking them out ruins my skin.

    so BUMP AGAIN!!!any info will be appreciated!

    Re: Best for blackheads

    The blackheads i get are hard too see there vary small in my nose and the skin next to my nose. But when i use oxy pads in that area. It totaly shrink's my pores and in the days following stuff starts to come out. if i havent used them in a while then start using them, some of the blackheads come to the surface and get real hard. But they seem to do a good job in that small area. I just never put it on my cheak or any where else, cause i cant see my pores in that area.

    Re: Best for blackheads

    No way ive tried that stuff before, people talk about it alot and all it did was sting, make my skin red and dry it up. Plus it actualy gave me a whithead. <p>[This message has been edited by i85 (edited 11-11-2002).]

    Re: Best for blackheads

    i have to second that opinion of i85, after trying St.Helene's my skin dried and it just caused more problems. so do these oxy pads remove blackheads without drying?

    I actually like the biore pads that you stick to your nose and pull off all that nasty stuff!

    Re: Best for blackheads

    I wish I had an answer for you. I started getting tons of blackheads after I started using cetaphil. So I have quit using it and am currently trying phisoderm. Also I just started using Neutrogene deep pore treatment night gel. Its supposed to help unclog pores. I'll let you know if I see any big improvements. I used the Queen Helene Mint Julep mask and at first I liked it but the sulfur in it started to irritate my skin. I have dry sensitive skin and it was just too strong.

    cheyanna,

    I think when I used Cetaphil it gave me blackheads too.

    Re: Best for blackheads

    Tifanie,
    I know it was definitely the cetaphil for me. It was the only thing different I was using. I know lots of people love it and I really wish I could use it but I couldn't believe how much it clogged my pores and the blackheads were huge and very noticiable. I hope what I'm using now will help. I've never been able to use salicylic acid before because I have terrible reactions to the products. But the one I am using is a clear gel and my book says its completely irritant free. So far it seems to be helping. I've been using it for over a week and I'm getting fewer blackheads and the ones I had are getting easier to remove.

    Re: Best for blackheads

    I have been using cetaphil for more than 3 weeks.. i thought i was seeing improvement, but i guessed not. I have noticed new and more blackheads on my cheeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My nose are ok, cuz i use the Queen Helene mint mask.. so it does help a little.

    So now i started using the Noxzema triple clean.. I still have to finish the cetaphil first. So im hoping that Noxzema will work. My face does feel cleaner. And i use cold water.

    Some ppl mentioned Serious Skin Continously Clear products and how it helped a lot for them.. I chked the website.. a little pricey.. but im not sure if it'll work.

    Im tired of trying sooooo many products.

    ok.. well, back to blkheads.. does anyone know how to rid of them on cheeks!?!?!??!


    thanks ..

    Crazyaboutblue,
    Let me know how the noxzema works. I never liked the original, but the triple clean ingredients are much better. I debated between it and the phisoderm. I chose the phisoderm for now, but if the triple clean works, I may try it.<p>[This message has been edited by cheyanna2 (edited 11-13-2002).]

    Re: Best for blackheads

    Its been 3 days since i used it.. but im using it once a day, at night before going to bed. I still have to finish cetaphil first. And then im going to use triple clean twice a day.

    So far, i like how it feels, it feels cleaner, and I havent broken out since, which is like WOW!!!!!

    I did used pHisoderm for sensitive skin for almost 2 months.. It worked for awhile, then it got worse..

    I'll keep u posted on the results.. Im going to see how my skin has improved within the next 3 days. =)
