Why after I use a chemical exfoliator my blackheads don't go away?

This could be due to many reasons. To name a few: 1) You are using an AHA or PHA instead of a BHA (Salicylic Acid) for your blackheads. 2) It's not strong enough for your skin. 3) You haven't used it long enough to give the product time to work. (If you have quite clogged pores it can take a while for chemical exfoliants to work.) β™‘

i'm using this, which contains AHA, BHA and PHA. but maybe BHA it's not strong enough. i'm still beginner so i tried low percentage
AHA 7%, BHA 1%, PHA 3% Weekly Peeling Solution

from the product you used its a physical type of exfoliator(and maybe need mote time to get the result),you can change to chemical exfoliator,usually chemical type exfoliating clean into pores

I would go with 2% BHA and avoid products with comedogenic ingredients. None of the popular toners etc work for me but the TO peeling solution has done wonders. I use it once a week but it is very strong and patch testing is a must.
AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
