My T-Zone becomes extremely oily and congested and as a result I get a lot of blackhead and whiteheads on my nose. I first saw this product on WishTrend TV’s Youtube channel and decided to test it for myself.
SKINMISO Pore Beauty Nose Pack is a 2 or 3-Step blackhead removal system.
Step one is a blackhead and whitehead removal mask. Unlike traditional nose pore strips this mask is soft and is infused with the product, it is applied to the nose and left for 10 minutes. It doesn’t dry hard therefore it isn’t painful to take off.
When you remove the mask all you blackhead and whiteheads come to the surface of your nose. At this stage you can use a cotton swab or a blackhead extracting tool (I bought mine from The Body Shop pictured below) to literally scrape away the sebum and blackheads on the surface of your nose. Now I’m not going to lie this stage was kind of gross but it was really cool to literally see all the gunk being lifted out of my pores.
After extraction, apply the step 2 mask which is used to contract the pores on the nose. Leave this for 10 minutes and rub in any remaining essence.
Step 3 is an optional essence which is used to control sebum and shine. I’m pretty sure that this product is just a primer because it is exactly like the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser.
I’m not sure my camera does this product justice but this is the best method I have used so far to clear the blackhead and whiteheads on my nose. The only down side is that the product costs a lot ($19 for 10 weeks worth) which doesn’t make it a weekly nose routine but more of a monthly one.
So for those of you who don’t know, Memebox is a South Korean beauty box. It is not a subscription service where you pay a monthly fee and the box is automatically delivered, however you just go onto their website and buy the boxes that you want and it begins delivery on the release date.
Each box contains 4-8 full size products or deluxe samples and costs around $23 (£13.48) each. Some boxes are a little cheaper, some a little more expensive depending on what they have in them. The shipping fees are $6.99 (£4.10) for standard shipping (15-25 business days to deliver). If you order over $75 (£44) worth of boxes you qualify for free express shipping which delivers in 3-7 business days.
Overall the actual value of each box comes in at least around $80 (£47), so it’s a great way of trying out new products which you may never get to try otherwise.
