Stubborn Blackheads

I have pretty stubborn blackheads on my nose and I'm looking for a product that will help me get rid of them. I was thinking of purchasing the DE Glycolic Serum. Did anyone  have good luck with this product? Or if there any products you suggest please let me know. I just got the DEbBaby Facial that I haven't used but I'm not sure if it helps with blackheads.

RE: Stubborn Blackheads

I’ve been using a trial size of DE night serum and it has decreased the size of pores and some blackhead reduction. It’s not a miracle over night and the stuff is potent and can be irritating. I do feel it’s effective. Get yourself a sample as a little goes a long way and you can see if you like it. DE is so expensive 😞

Re: Stubborn Blackheads

@Maggieb24 A BHA product is best for fighting blackheads.  I only like Paula's Choice.  It comes in 1, 2, 4 and 9%.  I also rec a gentle liquid cleanser, like FAB Face Cleanser.  Oil blotting sheets help when used routinely.


I personally like to use a mechanical scrub from time to time.  Some BICers definitely don't like scrubs, so I will leave that up to you to decide.  Neutrogena makes some nice low cost ones; just avoid the overly fragranced ones, or ones with menthol.  I use Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash, but it's definitely gritty.


If you are still struggling, then ask your derm if you are a candidate for Retin-A.


Best of luck!  🙂
