Blackheads, whiteheads and sebaceous filaments are things that irks almost everyone of us. And looking at those seemingly poreless models fronting the magazines doesn’t help either. To achieve “that” kind of poreless appearance is merely a figment of creativity and professionally painted foundation upon layer of primer. It is just parlor tricks designed to make all of us go ooooooohhh. The truth is, poreless appearance is hard to achieve, but keeping pores healthy and clean, well, that is easier to achieve. And today, I am going to share with you a product that, to me, really helps in getting rid of the gunk in the pores and indirectly prevents the formation of blackheads and whiteheads!
Read on if you’d like to know more. But be warned, as there are some…..icky images attached so viewers discretion is advised!

|Try-out period||:||Once weekly over a period of 2 months|
|Personal take||:||Listen, if you are not overly sensitive towards alcohol and fragrance, GET IT! Trust me, this mask is amazing! I have used it multiple times and each time, the mask is bound to have many sebaceous filaments sticking out of it like sore thumb. Granted, alcohol isn’t the best ingredient for our skin, but this mask is just going to be left on the skin for approximately 15 minutes (or 25 minutes if you are ambitious like me) until it is completely dry.
To be fair, this mask might not work or give you the same kind of results I have achieved, but it has for me. If you are up for shopping for another peel-off mask, please do go ahead and add this into your cart. You and your boyfriend can thank me later!
PS. After towel drying my face, i like to soak a cotton pad with lukewarm water and apply it over my nose for about a minute before applying this mask. The warmth helps to open up the pores for easier removal of gunk with the mask later.
|Will i recommend it?||:||Yes! Get it. Get it today!|

Nice review! I know pore strips aren’t the best thing to use because they can cause stress on the pores and actually end up creating larger ones. Is it the same with this?
Well, to a certain degree, this peel-off mask does cause some trauma to the pores just like regular pore strips. But thankfully, there are some ingredients in it with astringenic properties that can actually help in the after pore care. Keeping skin well hydrated also helps in preventing the loosening of pores too. In my opinion, this is where it fares better than the pore strips. 🙂
I already saw the pore pic on Instagram, but seeing it again…I’m fascinated and disgusted all over again! (I mean that as a compliment.) –Angela
