Neutrogena's new blackhead eliminating astrigent....Is this any good?? I know it has alcohol (which is bad) but It also has glycolic acid..which I need for my regimen. I just started using it so i don't know if this will work or not.

Current skin care regimen:

Morning...wash with aveeno foaming cleanser (.5%) salycilic acid

followed by the aveeno daily brightening scrub (for exfoliating)

then I use the Neutrogena Blackhead eliminating astrigent (containing .5% salycilic acid,with glycolic acid)

I make sure each product stays on my face for atleastt 3 minutes

Then I use an Ice cube to reduce any inflammations.

then I apply clearasil ultra !0% benzoyl peroxide. (prior to applying I put it in the refrigerator for atleast 10 minutes)

I do the same thing at night.

So far this has worked for me...Hopefully it will help somebody else

Take care ! biggrin.gif

Try Clean and Clear Blackhead Removing Scrub (I think thats what it's called), many people prefer it to Neutrogena.

if you want a toner containing glycolic acid, I'd recommend Reviva Labs (only available online though). It doesn't contain anything harsh like alcohol. I find it to be very gentle and somewhat moisturizing. Supposedly, salicylic acid and glycolic acid in the same product may interfere and not work as well (according to Dubrow of the acne cure. I don't know how true that is myself.
