Noxzema was the product line to choose when I was in high school and dealing with acne. And here we are many years later and it's still a product line to choose for acne related issues. Noxzema: Triple Clean Acne Blackhead Facial Cleanser is another salicylic acid containing cleanser that is a great choice for those dealing with combination to oily skin, but has been noted to be too drying for those with normal to dry skin.

Dr Brandt skin care has an entire "Pores No More" skin care line, but the Vacuum Cleanser Blackhead Extractor was picked for this list.
