It’s no secret that I love skincare, having bad skin throughout my teenage years it has become something I seriously value in my everyday beauty routine. Everyone has been going crazy for the blackhead removal masks, I’ve been wanting to put one to the test myself for ages but I couldn’t seem to get hold of one – until now!
The kit comes from the brand My Scheming, which I had never heard of before but it’s a popular skincare brand in China and Taiwan, so I was happy to trust it and give it a go. After cleansing my skin and making sure it is completely dry I go on to the first step which is the ‘Deep Pore Sebum Softener’, this feels like a regular serum and helps to open the pores ready for the mask. I only use the mask on my nose and chin, as that’s where I have the most blackheads.
The next step is applying the mask, I’ve found it’s important to make sure that an even layer is applied so that the whole thing dries evenly. I wait around 25 minutes for it to dry, and then the fun bit – peeling it off! I thought that this would tug at my skin and hurt, but surprisingly it didn’t and the whole thing came off in one pretty easily – taking all the crap from my skin with it!
I’m going to spare you any pictures of the results, but lets just say it definitely does clear the pores! I’ve never suffered with any breakouts after using this, infact my nose and cheeks have definitely been much clearer, not only from blackheads but also general breakouts.
Once I’ve peeled off the mask I rinse my skin with water and go on to step 3. Step 3 is similar to step 1 except it closes the pores. After using this I move onto toning and moisturising my skin and leave it at that. If you have oily, blemish prone skin and visible blackheads I would really recommend trying this.
If like me you tend you get blackheads on your chin, nose and cheeks then I really do think this product will work for you! It not only provided instant results but from using this once a week over the past 4 weeks it has really helped to reduce the appearance of blackheads on my skin. I’m definitely going to continue using on a weekly basis to keep my skin clear.
