If you're on the CSR, an exfoliator might not be recommended. Brandy will know more about this than I do, though. I will say that it took a couple of weeks, but slowly my clogged pores did dissapear with just the CSR.

im pretty sure exfoliating isnt advised to to extra irritation.

csr causes irritation anyway due to the chemical benzoyl peroxide

exfoliating usually doesnt help at all an tends to make skin worse

hang in there an im sure the clogged pores wil clear without exfoliating

The only "exfoliating" that is recommended is with an aha moisturizer. Only if yr past 1 month and be careful cause it does irritate some people. Lac-hydrin five is a good one, and seems pretty gentle.
