Blackheads… hmm, where do I begin? I hate them with a passion! Don’t you?
But what cause them and why do they keep coming back??
Basically, increase production of sebum means an increased risk of blackheads. This spike could be from hormonal changes (puberty, menstrual cycle, and pregnancy) that throws the balance of the sebaceous glands which make it go loco with sebum excretion!
Furthermore, build-up of dirt and oil on the surface of the skin from the use of excess cosmetics and moisturisers or skin that has not been properly cleaned are also your main suspects for blackheads! So make sure to be strict with your skin regimen.
Now that’s out of the way, let’s find out if we can finally say buh-bye to these little suckers in 2013!
Introducing Ciracle Blackhead Off Cotton Mask (100% Cotton)
This claims to get rid of them by dissolving sebum and removing blackheads or whiteheads. If you ask me, 15 minutes is a long wait, but if it means smooth and squeaky clean nose, this nose mask can have all the 15 mins there is! And remember, you can carry on with whatever you’re doing while having this on — although not a stick-on, this patch stays on like a pro! (once you’ve tried it, you’ll know what I mean )
♥ 20 individually wrapped nose mask comes very handy in this black sachet that looks very manly, in fact, the whole packaging has the men-esque vibe to it, which, to me, is a great his or hers product.
This is so full of moisture and has that cooling effect. There are no tingling sensation nor it irritated my nose while on or after (same for hubby) and the formula draws out dirt, whiteheads, and blackheads, of which you can easily scrape/wiped off with the supplied special cotton bud.
And voila… a much cleaner blackhead-free nose!
Would I recommend it? Why of course!
I think it’s a great addition to your beauty routine (I normally use this once a week) along with the right cleansers and exfoliators that will help you keep blackheads away! I bought this a few months ago, and literally just run out!! This was during the sale over at www.wishtrend.com, paid $18.99 (£11+) , which I really thought was a great bargain as there are 20 in the pack! The fact that it’s not adhesive, it’s perfect for my skin and no residue is left when the nose strip is taken off.
