Recently I’ve started being interested in getting rid of my black heads again. I used to get rid of my black heads religiously when I was about 14, but I did it in the worst possible manner: I squeezed them out of my nose. Not only is this unhygienic, it also gives me the most unflattering red swollen nose ever. So I stopped doing it.
But I’m keen to get rid of them. They are unflattering and black heads aren’t that great for you anyways. This is where the remover sheets come into play.
This particular one by Etude House is a dual sheet pack. This means, there are two steps to it. You take the sheet out from the side labelled 1 and stick it onto your nose for 15 minutes. Here, have a unflattering photo of me!
When the 15 minutes are up, you are to remove the sheet and then wipe off the blackheads/whiteheads etc from your nose with a cotton pad. Remember to do it in a downward motion.
Once done, you remove the sheet from the side labelled 2 and stick that on for another 15 minutes. This one is to tighten your pores once more so you don’t end up with a nose full of holes!
So what did I think of it?
It does work. To a certain extent. After the first sheet was done sitting on my nose, I managed to wipe off some whiteheads. My cotton pad was definitely dirty but knowing my nose the way I do, I know there’s a lot more in there still. The liquid used to soak the sheets do not agree with my eyes. By that I mean, the fumes from the sheet make my eyes water. I believe it’s more to do with the fact that my eyes are sensitive than the fumes being strong. The 2nd step is a brilliant idea. Tighten the now empty pores! Good. The 2nd step works a treat too. I was vastly impressed by how pore-less I looked.
Would I repurchase? No.
Look, while I really did have fun playing with this, I believe the novelty will wear off fairly quickly. I want something that works well, and just getting rid of some of my white heads does not justify the purchase, cheap or not. So while I really like the addition of the pore tightening sheet, I won’t be running back to the shops for this.
Would you like to try this for yourself?
Where possible, I’d like for a reader of mine to try it for themselves. Why read my blabbering and forget about it? While I can’t supply each and every one of you with a product everytime, I will definitely try my best to share.
