Shop Blackheads


Banish those stubborn blackheads! It's awful to wake up to realise you've got a blackhead forming, so what's the best way to prevent and treat them? These products are what we'd recommend to you if your skin needs a bit of help getting rid of blackheads.


When it comes to cleansing, make sure you're using a gentle cleanser that cleanses thoroughly, without stripping the skin of its natural defenses. Some blackhead (and acne) treatments can dry out the skin, but further stripping the skin can lead to it overcompensating with oil... which in turn leads to more blackheads! Stop the cycle in its tracks with some of our favourite cleansers listed below.


We recommend using a treatment serum that help remove a build-up of dead cells, which can trap molecules that can lead to blackheads. Don't be afraid of using products that contain Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs, such as Glycolic acid) and/or Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs, usually Salicylic Acid) as they can encourage your skin's natural cell turnover process and leave you with clearer, beautiful skin. Just make sure you wear your sunscreen, and introduce these powerful active ingredients into your routine slowly. 


We recommend using a physical exfoliant once or twice a week, if it is suitable for your skintype. It's easy to think that scrubbing your skin with a physical exfoliant (with beads) regularly will banish blackheads, but over-use can lead to skin irritation and cause more blackheads. If your skin needs an extra scrub, try a cleanser or masque that contains enzymes. This will help tidy up dead skin cells naturally, without causing irritation.


A clay masque can help absorb excess oil in the skin, reducing the chances of blackheads forming. Try one with enzymes, AHAs or BHAs for extra effect!

No noticeable difference

I've been using this for a few weeks now and I haven't noticed any real difference. I bought it because I have oily skin and wanted my face to look brighter and less congestion but it didn't seem to change anything. I also wasn't a fan of the fragrance.

Bit overrated

I wanted to love this mask, but same with the sleeping one I didn't notice any visible results. Perhaps more suited to someone with already great skin. I regret buying a full size bottle.

Great for congested skin

I have really congested skin and started using the glycolic scrub alongside the cleanser for years now. The scrub leaves your skin looking fresh and feels super soft. Have bought it time and time again. Good not only for your face but a good scrub after you've had laser etc. to stop ingrown hairs!

Amazing product!

Cleared my breakouts up after a week of continuous use. Now use every morning. Tip is to let it sink in and dry completely before putting anything over the top.
