I found it. The holy grail of face cleansers. The oil method was working for me (or so I thought) until I got a gander closer at my pores...blackheads everywhere!!!! Arrgggghhhh!!!!<br><br>
So, I took my sorrowful butt down to the HFS and bought (finally, after waffling on spending more money on more facial cleansers) the Desert Essence Facial Cleanser. Ya know, the one that is like $6.00 for the 32oz size! Tried it that evening....the next morning (I kid you not) not a single blackhead was left...and what more, it cleaned my face without "stripping" it. My skin didn't feel tight or anything...just really, really clean. And this stuff is organic, vegan, no animal testing. And cheap. Like, dirt cheap.<br><br>
I'll still use the OCM for my weekly "facials" as I love that moisturized feeling...but will now stick with this Desert Essence cleanser.<br><br>
Just thought I'd share, as I had been curious about this cleanser for awhile now. Oh, it smells wicked strong...be aware, because the tea tree is really predominant it packs a mighty wallop when you are using it, but the scent dissipates after you rinse off.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

That's awesome, thanks for sharing! I have a pretty major problem with blackheads too. Normally I don't use any cleanser at all, because it makes my skin too dry and tight. I will keep my eyes open for Desert Essence...sadly there is no HFS in my area (I'm not even sure if there are any in Canada) but maybe I can find it somewhere.

Ooh, thanks for the tip! I like the OCM, but I'm often in too much of a hurry to go through the whole process. Plus it's hard to get all of the oil out of my washcloths.

Oh I'm going to have to try that stuff! I've had terrible skin my whole life and nothing I've ever tried has worked...but then again, the last time I tried anything was when I was a teenager lol!

Microdermabrasion (at home) has worked very well for me in diminishing my blackheads. But nothing has worked at completely eliminating them. I'm going to have to check it out - thanks!
