Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub ~ Review & Swatch

What Neutrogena says about the Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub?
Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub doesn't just fight blackheads, it helps eliminate them for clearer, smoother skin. This gentle scrub immediately works two ways to not only clear out the blackheads you have now, but also to help prevent new ones from forming.

First, you'll feel it tingle as its maximum strength acne medicine, Salicylic Acid, penetrates deep to eliminate blackheads by removing stubborn dirt and oil trapped inside pores. Then, you'll feel its gentle, skin-soothing microbeads exfoliate without overdrying to help stop blackheads before they start.
Neutrogena Black Head Removal Scrub

I was perfectly happy with my cleansing routine till the winters started. My nose area gets flaky and I need to use heavy moisturizers daily. In-spite of regular scrubbing for every 2 days, the increase in the level of moisturization has caused blackheads on my nose. I felt the need for daily scrubbing. So in that search, I grabbed this Neutrogena Daily Scrub which claimed to remove and eliminate blackheads.

So let’s see how it worked and if it has helped in removing and eliminating  the blackheads.

Price: 110 INR for 40g
Shelf Life: 3 years.

Look & Feel

  • Package: Comes in a plastic squeeze tube with is convenient to use and to carry around.

Neutrogena Daily Scrub Package

  • Fragrance: Has a pleasant fruity fragrance which lingers for 30 minutes after face wash.
  • Texture: A slippery liquid formula with a combination of white and orange colored granules. The white granules are very minute while the orange colored granules are like tiny beads.


  • Ingredients: As seen in the below picture, it does have SLS and many chemicals. But they haven’t caused any side effects on my skin.

  • Lathering: Not a rich foamy lather but gives a sufficient creamy lather for a clean feeling.
  • Cleansing: I am quite impressed with the cleansing properties of this scrub. I have tried to cleanse heavy water-proof makeup and it did remove almost 70% of the makeup.  So, for daily usage to remove grease and dirt it will definitely work well. The product even washes off easily without leaving behind any slippery residue.


  • Blackheads Removal: I didn’t notice any uprooting effect on the current blackheads.
  • Blackheads Elimination: I have used this scrub daily for almost 3 weeks. I did get nice clean smooth skin daily but the blackheads were not eliminated fully.
  • Drying? Nope not at all. I didn’t notice any dryness even on my normal-dry skin.  During winters I felt my skin to be little stretchy but it was taken care by a moisturizer.

Cost Efficient? Average efficiency for the price.

Neutrogena Black Head Removal Scrub Review

Final Note: It’s a good daily use scrub to give squeaky clean skin, but one cannot fully bank on it for the elimination of blackheads. You still have to exfoliate your skin twice in a week with a coarse scrub and be regular in CTM to prevent blackheads.
