Blackheads and whiteheads, especially in the nose area, are any vain person’s worst enemy! No matter how many times you get rid of them, they keep coming back. But hey, I’ve found my holy grail and I’m spreading the news! Remember those pore strips for the nose you’ve found in the malls that promises to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads but didn’t? I’ve tried any brand possible during my teenage years but all that’s left is a sticky nose with blackheads and whiteheads still.
How to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads? A perennial question that requires perennial search over that one effective solution. I hope my latest beauty haul will be the answer to my problem. I’ve been buying Korean beauty products lately and one of them is the brand, Beauty Credit. The SAs promised me that there Charcoal Nose Pore Cleaning Patch really works and can lift off blackheads and whiteheads away. For just Php 35, I gave it a try. Here’s what the package says:
Control sebum with charcoal
Absorbent charcoal removes black heads and sebum hidden in pores to keep skin clear and fair.
Healthy skin with natural nutrients
Licorice extracts with soothing effect and minerals in charcoal keep the skin healthy without irritation and Hamamelis with pore astringing effect controls widened pores, leaving the skin fair and smooth looking
aqua, acrylates copolymer, PVP, PVA, silicone dioxide, PEG12, dimethicone, charcoal, titanium dioxide, bentonite, illite, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, aloe barbadensis extract, camellia sinensis, leaf extract, tocopheryl acetate, mentha piperita oil, perfume
I followed the instructions also found at the back of the package and waited for 15-20 minutes until the patch dried up on my nose. I gently lifted the nose patch and I’m surprised with the results. I never even thought that I have whiteheads that much but the evidence is on the nose patch. I can really see tiny specks of white on the patch. My nose literally felt clean afterwards.
Even my mother who is now 62 years old uses the nose patch weekly. She’s now on its 4th patch and she said there aren’t much whiteheads and blackheads now compared to her first application of the nose patch. My mother is allergic to certain smells and would immediately sneeze when something irritates her nose. But the patch’s smell is not that strong and didn’t irritate her.
I can’t seem to find the benefits of charcoal and how it helps to remove whiteheads and blackheads but I’ll leave it just that. The Charcoal Nose Pore Cleaning Patch is my holy grail for now.
