Another Bye-Bye Blackhead Story

So, how long have you been struggling with blackhead, girls? I believe, from time to time, most people have a specific concern with this nature's alarm to tell us that our pores are blocked by oil and dirt.  (I was just trying to explain what is blackhead with non-scientific language, haha)

I told my tale about Skinfood's Black Bean Nose Pack years behind.  And I've tried using many, many methods to extract my blackheads, including making honey and sugar masks plus scrubs.  But I won't make any facial appointment, or take any dermatologist's drugs... Well, I'm not a formal kind of lady.  Hahaha.

So far, my favorite procedure to reduce blackheads is rubbing an amount of VCO on my nose with frontal-circular direction.  It slowly removes trapped oils and dirts.  Quite effective, but for some moment I need an instant way! And I was curious about liquid nose pack, after more and more pore strips in the past.  The brand I choose is again Innisfree.  This is Innistree Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack.   Purchased this tube online at My Lovely Sister, but I forget the price.   IDR 129.000 if I'm not mistaken.

No illustration today.  I'm fully a photographer this Wednesday.  And I was excited by today's gloomy sunshine.  A good time to start taking pictures with camera.  :)

Let's start with ingredients, shall we?

water, polyvinyl acohol, sd alcohol 40-B, charcoal powder, glycerin, dipropylene glycol, piper methysticum leaf/root/stem extract, ulmus davidiana root extract, amaranthus caudatus seed extract, portulaca oleracea extract, pueraria thunbergiana root extract, glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) extract, paeonia lactiflora root extract, cnidium officinale root extract, citrus unshiu peel extract, orchid extract, camellia sinensis leaf extract, camellia japonica leaf extract, opuntia coccinellifera fruit extract, soluble collagen, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, hydrogenated lecithin, sodium hyaluronate, galactoarabinan, urea, C12-14 pareth-12, xanthan gum, silica, ethylhexylglycerin, volcanic ash (jeju scoria), disodium edta, fragrance, phenoexyethanol 

Woow, I feel like writing a botanical diary.  :)) By the way, I have no idea about those material I underlined and coloured.  Can someone tell me what in the world is it?

The form is black thick liquid, charcoal-y, as you can imagine how a liquified charcoal will be like. Dark, grainy, opaque.  Paste on the nose or any zone with blackhead, let it dry for 10-15 minutes, and pull off! :D

Okay, about the perfomance, I can't say I'm absolutely satisfied with the nose pack, but I'm not disappointed either.  Sometimes it's effective, sometimes it's not fabulous. It cleans my nose quite nicely, though it's not as harsh as usual pore strips.  Fortunately, it's sticky, but it's not drying or irritating compared with pore strips.  They strip the skin.  This one doesn't.  When being taken off, I can see some blackhead/whitehead fillers pulled out! :)

By the way, please note: You have to keep it in the RIGHT way.  Put the closure cap facing the ground.  Don't do the opposite.  Somehow the mixture will be messy, and all you get is a greyish jelly with charcoal powder not properly mixed! Remember, it works more effectively in matte black liquid form

C'est tout pour aujord'hui, Belles Filles.  May this review brightens your day.  A colourful post is coming after this.  <3
