This Little Piggy: Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Black Head Sugar Scrub Review

Holika-Holika-Pig-Nose-Clear-Black-Head-Sugar-Scrub.jpg

There’s nothing like a beauty product that fills you with confidence; so if you have the skin problem of ‘blackheads’ what can be nicer than using a range called ‘Pig-Nose Clear’. Ouch.  “Wow, your skin is looking great! What have you been using on it?” “Er….Pig-Nose” But you know what? I see this as an Asian mother thing. Asian (Chinese) mothers are very good at the appearance based put downs, so I think of Holika […]

OUCH! Sexylook Byebye Blackhead Removal and Pore Cleanser Kit Review

sexylook-blackhead-remover.jpg

This extremely random kit is from Taiwan and is a pore cleanser and blackhead removal kit.  These kits are extremely popular in Asia – I have purchased quite a few 3 pieces sets that have a sebum softener, a mask and finishing essence that tightens the pores. This one is from a brand called Sexylook and features strawberries! Why?! THe blackhead look is known as the ‘strawberry nose’. This 3 piece set contains a sebum […]

Shills Purifying Peel Off Black Mask and Deep Sebum Softener Review and Blackhead Photos!

Shills-Black-Mask-Purifying-Peel-Off-Mask-Deep-Sebum-Softener-.jpg

Every time I buy something from Shills, I giggle a little about the fact the brand is called Shills,  then I pay. Of course. Shills is a funny little range, I haven’t tried anything from the range yet that I love – it all feels a bit cack handed, like the packaging is somewhat unfinished and some of the cosmetics are just rip offs of Benefit products.  Nevertheless…I loved the halloween look of the Purifying […]

Blackheads be gone! The Face Shop Black Head EX Clean Up Kit Review

Black-Head-Face-Shop-Clean-Up-Kit-.jpg

The Face Shop is a Korean Brand – and if I’m honest I don’t know how to define it! It has a lot of eco friendly ideas (I notice a pattern here with Innisfree and Skinfood too!) – very food based, very natural sounding, even if it is not! Anyway I love looking for blackhead solutions even though my favourite one is now discontinued.  The Face Shop’s Blackhead Clean Up Kit seemed like a gentle […]

Get rid of blackheads? Missha Super Aqua Blackhead Clear Oil Review

Misscha-Super-Aqua-Blackhead-Clear-Oil-.jpg

I’ve had issues with blackheads for a while, mainly over my nose areas but sometimes my chin.  It’s a real pain always having to use things like masks and pore strips! With Asian brands, you’ll find tons of products specifically created to deal with the blackhead problem, so perhaps some girls are prone to this.  I can imagine in Asia, where it is hot and humid people are more likely to sweat and get blocked […]

Holika Holika Blackhead Sponge: Hot Scrub, Peel Off Mask & Magic Patch Review!

Holika-Holika-Blackhead-Sponge-Peel-Off-Mask-Hot-Scrub-Magic-Patch.jpg

I have to say, since I’ve been using Skinceuticals (more on them later) I’ve been getting less and less blackheads..but even so, they are one of my skin issues. I get a lot of blackheads on the nose especially and take time every two weeks to extract an get those nasty little things out out out. Maintenance is the key. A lot of Asian brands offer blackhead products – there’s a lot to choose from […]

Tony Moly Blackhead Out Oil Gel, Egg Pore Tightening Pack & Silky Smooth Balm Review

Tony-Moly-Egg-Pore-Blackhead-Out-Smooth-Base-Brightening-Pack.jpg

Tony Moly should be a chef. Or a plumber. Or your uncle. He doesn’t sound like a name for a beauty company, but it is, and I just have to accept it. I haven’t tried much from Tony Moly, because other Korean brands like Etude House and Skinfood catch my attention more. But I couldn’t resist these super cute Egg Pore products (sold separately) when I saw them on eBay recently. I’ll say it now […]

Naris Up Blackhead Solution: Pore Clear Eggshell Essence and Charcoal Nose Pack

Pore-Clear-Nose-Pack-eggshell-essence-and-charcoal-nose-mask.jpg

I can’t resist a cute little gimmicky product so I bought this from Adambeauty a few weeks back. This is Naris Up (a Japanese brand) Pore Clear Eggshell Essence and Charcoal Nose Mask/Pack for clearing pores! Nose strips work just ok on me – I have yet to find one that I love and is 100% effective. Hence I love trying these masks – apply after a shower when your skin is soft and your […]
