I have noticed that I have a few blackheads around my nose area, what do you do to get rid of them?
Also, what do you do on a day to day basis. I slap a bit of moisturiser on sometimes and that's it
Bought the scrub yesterday and have noticed a difference already!

I use Clean & Clear blackhead clearing scrub or wash (alternate) daily. I do this every night when I get in from work I still have them but not that visible and my pores are definitely better since using this.
As for skin regime: Of an evening I remove eye makeup with vitamin e cream remover and then wash face with the above scrub. I then use a Crème de la Mer, eye cream, lifting serum and moisturiser. In the morning after my shower I use the eye cream, serum and moisturiser then a primer before applying foundation.

Goodness me Belle, thats loads. I don't wear makeup every day.
I will get the clean and clear blackhead scrub and wash.

I love the clean and clear stuff too and use the wash twice a day, the scub every other day and I use the moisturiser of a night. In the morning I use moisturiser and primer, plus a pore reducer before I put on my make up as I am concious of the pores on my nose area. if I don't do this I have loads of blackheads as have very open pores. I used to steam as a teen but to be honest I have the shower so hot it must steam my skin anyway a facial every few months always helps too

I wear a full face of makeup everyday plus tan 5 nights out of 7 so really need to be kind to my skin.

I love the Clean & Clear blackhead scrub too. Or the Neutrogena blackhead one is also great (I have this one currently, and it's my fave at the moment).
I also have the No.7 microdermabrasion scrub thing, I can't remember what it's called exactly, and I use that twice a week. I have been doing that for a couple of months now and that is making a huge difference to my skin looking less blackheady and smoother.
Apart from that, I use witch blemish gel, and an anti-wrinkle moisturiser in the day, and at nigt time I use witch face wipes and normally slather on some savalon like moisturiser! A pretty weird combination, but seems to be working for me. My skin has been better the last couple of months than ever.

Oh I love the Pink Grapefruit Neutrogena one Catarina but I found it didn't work a good on my blackheads despite smelling delicious!

It's not the pink grapefruit one, it's in the orange coloured packagaing, and it is the one specifically for blackheads.

I've just bought the Clarins foaming wash which is gorgeous smelling. Time will tell if it works, but my skin does feel squeaky clean after using it.
I was using the Benefit range but think its too strong for me.

I struggled with Benefit 1stBaby didn't I. I swear they changes ingredients

Yeah I think they must have done! It just felt so strong and my skin was feeling sore in parts.
