[REVIEW] Neutrogena Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating SOS Cleanser

Like I promised about a week ago I'm reviewing this Blackhead Eliminating SOS Cleanser by Neutrogena visibly clear. It promises to give visible results in one week. Let's see how it worked for my skin during this one week.

During this week I didn't do any changes to my skin care routines except that I was using this cleanser instead of my usual one. Which is also by Neutrogena. I did not change my eating or sleeping habits. I washed my face 2 times a day as usual and used Etude House collagen + ginseng sheet masks daily until I ran out of them and started to get some breakouts to my skin.... I really need to order a new one XD


An intense 1 week blackhead-fighting solution with 100% visible results* Clinically proven to help eliminate blackheads in 3 effective ways:

  • Helps unclog pores
  • Exfoliates to help loosen existing blackheads
  • Purifies deep down when used as a mask
Directions for use:
  • Cleanser: Massage onto wet face twice daily. 
  • Mask: Once a week smooth on a thin layer. Allow to dry for 5 minutes.
For each action, rinse with warm water. Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact with eyes, rinse thoroughly. For external use only.

*Clinical study, USA 2010, open comedones assessment on 30 subjects after 7 days twice daily usage.

Okay so there are at least water, acids, alcohols and many other stuffs in this cleanser... I wish I knew what is what...


This cleanser comes in 100ml tube. I like it a lot since it's easy to use at home. I don't think I would carry this around when I'm traveling for 2 reasons: the tube is a tad too big to carry around for short trips. And the bigger reason is that since it's a tube I'm afraid it might get broken or the cap might open and all the stuff squeezes out and ruins everything else... Or then I'm just being paranoid ^^

I like the design and look of the tube. I like the fact that it's simple. However the back of the tube has so much text with so little print that if I had worse sight than I have... I would need help to see what reads there... I personally think that the Swedish using instructions aren't needed since I don't use them...


I bought this from the nearest drugstore/pharmaseutics. I bet they sells this everywhere at least here in Finland. This was about 8-9 € and I think it's very good price for this ^^


I just LOVE the scent of this. I don't think I've ever smelled anything as good as this. This has a slight scent that smells a bit like peach but also a bit like flowers. It also somehow smells like marshmallows ^^

The texture of this is more like a scrub. It has these little beads in it and those helps to exfoliate the dead skin cells. I think it might not be a good for those who have sensitive skin or dry as this might irritate and dry the skin a bit. I really love the feeling this cleanser gives right after you've washed your face with it ^^

You don't need to use much when cleansing your face with this because it kinda "multiplies" when washing your face with this. I think you get better results if you add a tad more water too ^^ Then you just massage your face. I think I used this for 2 minutes at once just to make sure that all the dirt and dead skin cells are gone ~

When washing away this I realized that you really need to use warm water. It kinda gets stuck under the nails when using so you have to wash your hands really well afterwards too XD


When I look at the results on my nose... I think there might be few blackheads disappeared but the others have become more visible. Maybe it just means that I need to continue the use for them to disappear too? Seems like this made my skin less oily too. Though it might also be just the camera and the lighting... who knows. Oh god the eyes looks so scary...

Now when I look at the results on my chin I can see that them blackheads have disappeared almost completely. Yay ~~

I also noticed that there are less blackheads on my cheeks (the area where my glasses touches...) and in my forehead too. So yeah I guess this works ^^


+ amazing scent
+ very cheap
+ can be used in 2 different ways aka it lasts longer or lesser depending which way you use it
+ simple looking package
+ skin feels really fresh after washing your face

+/- The product promises 100% visible results after one week... I'd say 50/50 for that one.

- the package might be difficult when traveling
- a bit difficult to wash away

 RATING: 3+/5
