Removing blackheads can be such a maintenance! And indeed painful most of the time. Having an oily skin type, it has been one of my skin care issues since I was a teenager. I often use blackhead strips or opt for a professional to remove my pesky blackheads- especially on the nose area.
I came across a product from RiRe on Althea and I was sold by the claims. So I did give it a try.
According to the website:
How to Use?
It is basically a cleansing stick specifically made to remove the blackheads on your nose area. It has 10g of product and expires in 6 months after opening the product.
The scent actually reminds me of detergents.
Is it effective? Well, I have to be honest that it is not. I have religiously used this every day during night routine for good long three weeks but I didn’t see any tightening of the pores or whatsoever. In terms of cleaning or clearing out the blackheads and whiteheads, it doesn’t really perform as good as the description says. I still need to use my strips to make sure that my nose area is blackhead free.
Also, I don’t like the packaging because it is not sanitary. I still wash the top of the product every use.
Lastly, I am not sure but after several use the product itself detached from the packaging. I can still use it but I need to be extra careful so the product will not drop out of the casing.
Overall, I am not so impressed with this blackhead remover. I was so excited about this concept that is why it breaks my heart that it is not as effective for me. Anyways, I will still use this until it is finished and will update you guys if there’s any improvement with the effects.
