Unclogs pores and refines skin texture

A scrub with Lactic Acid and pore-refining micro particles that unclogs pores, reduces blackheads and blemishes and refines skin texture.


I am very satisfied with the scrub. I use the peeling every two days. The skin feels very smooth after cleaning, without irritating or drying out.

Product info

Skin peel for blemish-prone skin

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Scrub is an oil-free skin peel with Lactic Acid that removes impurities without drying out the skin. Suitable for face and body, the exfoliating action of natural micro particles works against dead skin cells − one of the key causes of blackheads and spots − and gently cleanses skin and removes make-up. Learn more about how to exfoliate your skin.

Pores are unclogged, impurities and blackheads are reduced and skin texture is visibly smooth and refined.

The product has been specially formulated for oily and blemish-prone skin which is not undergoing medication and can be used during pregnancy.

Clinical and dermatological studies

The product’s effectiveness was tested in a six-week study in Germany with a sample of 16 women and 4 men aged between 13 and 34 (average age 18.5 years). 

Main findings

The study confirmed:

  • That Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Scrub has a very positive effect on general skin condition.
  • That the scrub is very well tolerated by those with blemish- and acne-prone skin or those with mild acne comedonica.


  • antibacterial
  • comedolytic
  • non-comedogenic
  • lightly fragranced

How To Use


  • Use the scrub once a week, or more frequently if needed, instead of the Cleansing Gel
  • Wet your face and/or body
  • Apply product to your hands (use an amount about the size of a hazel nut)
  • Gently massage onto face and/or body
  • Rinse thoroughly
  • Follow with the appropriate care product such as Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Oil Control Mattifying Fluid
  • Avoid contact with your eyes
  • Suitable for daily use

Recommendations for your daily skincare routine

Cleanse and tone

Cleanse skin in the morning and evening:

  • am: to remove the sebum and dead skin cells that have accumulated overnight
  • pm: to remove make-up and free skin from the day’s dirt

Use gentle cleansing products such as Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Oil Control Cleansing Gel with lukewarm water and follow with an appropriate toner. You may also benefit from using a scrub once a week to unclog pores and refine skin texture.

We do not recommend using an alcohol-based toner and the scrub alongside blemish-prone skin medication as it can make skin more sensitive. If you like the refreshing feel of a toner, try the alcohol-free Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Oil Control Micellar Cleansing Water instead.

The care product you use depends on the severity of your blemished skin and on the type of treatment you are undergoing.


If you are using medical treatment for bemished skin, Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Oil Control Adjunctive Soothing Cream helps to alleviate some of the symptoms such as intense dryness. It should be applied five minutes after your medication so the treatment can absorb fully.


If you have mild to moderate blemished skin, but are not undergoing medical treatment, use a soothing and mattifying moisturiser such as Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Oil Control Mattifying Fluid in the morning and evening.


For clearer and smoother-looking skin over time, you may also like to incorporate our skin renewal treatment into your routine. It is suitable for all blemish-prone skin that is not undergoing medical acne treatment and should be used once a day only − ideally in the evening. You can use it before the mattifying fluid or on its own.

Sun protection

Sun protection is an important step in your morning routine. Blemishes can cause pigmentation issues if over-exposed to the sun, and medications for blemished skin can make blemish-prone skin even more sensitive to UV rays. Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch SPF30 and SPF50+ offers the levels of protection that your skin needs and should be applied before your cover-up and make-up. If you’re applying sun protection after a topical treatment for blemished skin wait five minutes to allow the treatment to fully absorb.

Concealer and make-up

Cover blemishes and even out skin tone with foundation and/or a concealer. Choose products that are non-comedogenic (i.e. that will not block pores) and, ideally, ones that contain ingredients that work to improve the condition of blemish-prone skin. Be sure to remove all make-up before you go to bed.

    Love this product
    As a busy mum I sometimes find it hard to manage a good skincare routine. I've been using this scrub for over a week now and it's made such a difference to my skin. My skin is definitely a lot softer and no sign of any blackheads. And best of all, takes seconds to use. I like that the scrub is not too harsh and I can use it very quickly, rinses off easily and i can get on with my day. The packaging is very neutral and simple, and I like how I can see how much I have left to use! Overall I would recommend this eucerin scrub, it does a great job at leaving your skin feeling fresh and clean.
