4 Fl oz (118 ml).


Not mentioned on pack but showing $6.99 on an international website.

I got this tube as a surprise gift from my brother studying in the US for clearing my chicken pox marks! I was like what?? From so many brands out there, he found only Neutrogena! That too to remove pox marks! But as it was monsoon at that time and a nice time for my skin to break out; I thought to give this a try.


My Take on Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Cleanser/Mask:

I have been using this product for the last 4 months and it has definitely impressed me. The product is white in color, cream based with very fine granules, though not grainy. It has a mild pleasant and sweet smell. I have been using this product both as a cleanser and as a mask. I gently massage this for 2 minutes for 2-in-1 action of cleansing and scrubbing. It does not dry out my skin at all. When I have time, I apply this as mask, let it dry for 10 to 20 minutes and again while removing, I massage and wash.

Blackhead Clearing

It does what it claims. It keeps my face blackhead free at least for 2 days if I use this once a day. It does not irritate my skin at all. It definitely adds a very nice glow to my face irrespective of how I use this.  The best part is it helped in clearing my existing pimples even pus filled ones. They gradually became smaller and then whoosh! Gone!

  3. Good grief. This is like 9845934859th item that I covet but that is not available in India. Thanks for the glowing review, Pooja. I now know what I need for my blackheads and little pimples. I just have to figure out a way to lay my hands on this thing now. Such reviews on IMBB are forcing me to be nice to my NRI relatives. 😐
