Are You Prone to Blackheads?

It's no wonder the choices in skin care products are seemingly endless, there are so many different types of skin - dry, oily, combination, normal, sensitive.  Some people will stay the same skin type for the whole of their lives whist others will under go skin changes due to age, hormones or their enviroment.  

Our skin type really depends on 3 factors - water content (affecting comfort and elasticity), oil/lipid content (affecting softness) and sensitivity level.  Younger skin is more likely to be affected by these things, notably the oil content.  Young skin is more prone to excess oil (particularly the T-zone) which is why we generally have more break outs and blackheads before we hit our mid-twenties. 

We're looking for a trial team to put a new cleanser to the test - its not released officially until the New Year, so this trial team will be among the first in NZ to try it!  What we can tell you - this is a charcoal cleanser.  Exciting!

To put your hand up, CLICK HERE take our quick survey telling us more about your skin type!

So tell us what kind of skin do you have?  Do you struggle to find products that work for your skin type or have you perfected your skin care routine?  What are the main concerns that come with your skin type?

I find blackheads appear when my stress goes up and my eating gets worse and I don't get outside enough

I feel my skin has definitely changed over the past years... probably due to environmental change. It’s not young anymore... but still gets random breakouts, patches of extremely dry skin especially on the ends and around my nose and eye area. On the tip of my nose still lives those dotty black heads i can’t seem to ever get rid of.. But at the same time, i don’t want to dry out my skin any further. My face even warms up pink red when i’m tired.. and nope i haven’t reached 30 yet ;D

I realise i don’t see blackhead products around for those prone to sensitive or dry skin, most blackhead products are made for those with the oily skin types, i guess because it’s more common for those with oily skin to get blackheads.

I have had blackheads since I was 14 years old and I believe there is no product on the current market that will get rid of these!! I would love to be proven wrong!!

I have tried so many products but nothing really works!!! Would really like to try the new product and see how effective it is!

Ive noticed more blackheads as ive gotten older and my makeup has become more natural, my blackheads seem to be more around my nose and then i get the odd one in other places :(

I mainly have blackheads on my nose and chin area. I noticed as I get older the more I get and the larger the existing one's become! I have never found anything that effective to reduce or maintain them either as having sensitive skin I need to be careful with harsh products. I would be keen to trial a new product if suitable.

Blackheads are just something that I've dealt with for a very long time and I haven't really found anything that actually works. My pores on the tip of my nose and around my t zone are very big and I also have every oily skin. With summer coming up I'm pretty sure they will get worse.

I seem to get blackheads on the bridge of my nose, would be great to find something that would remove them without damaging my skin

17th November, 2018

I'm pretty happy with my skin care regime lately although I am prone to getting blackheads around my upper cheek area now that I have hit the peri menopausal stage of my life (along with the lovely fine lines and wrinkles) so it would be nice to find a product that does at least help reduce them.

Blackheads are the horror in my life! Especially my nose and chin just under my bottom lip. You name it I've tried it, blackhead cleansers, my own homemade cleansers with coffee and raw sugar, toothpaste etc, I'm still after my holy grail product!
