UK Over the counter Blackhead treatment

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what OTC blackhead treatments you can get in the UK? I read here that mandelic acid is good but I'm not sure what products contain it.

icve never found any that work..are they boots own brand ones?

i just find if you have a tiny bit of peeling skin, or a blemish or anything, it will rip it to pieces.

i just started using biore warming blackhead cleanser, that 'fires away' at blackheads, lol!!

i think the theory is, that its so warming (feels LOVELY!) it opens pores, so if you then exfoliate, the clogged pores can be cleaned more easily.

no luck atm!will let ya know!

I've found that Biore nose strips are really, my blackheads are non existent after 4-5 uses
