The product I am going to be reviewing today is the Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Cleansing Mask.
|It claims to draw out trapped dirt & oil. =)|
Whenever a product claims to magically erase my blackheads, I am always somewhat skeptical since blackheads cannot be "magically" erased. Blackheads are the result of dirt and oil that have accumulated in your skin so you can't expect to get rid of them in a matter of minutes. Like anything in life, patience and persistence is key!
However this product was only $4.97 so it was worth a try. I usually have pretty good skin on my face, but the skin on my nose is somewhat bad. I tend to have really large pores on my nose which leads to incessant sweating and clogged pores. It doesn't help that I have to run and play tennis in the heat leading to more sweat haha. This is why my summer time face routine crucial or else I'll end up with clogged pores and 50000 pimples .. (over exaggeration haha, but you get my point)
This is me without any makeup and a clean face. (Notice the glasses tan line.. it'll slowly become more prominent as the summer goes on!)
I always make sure to tie my hair back or else I am going to end up with a mess.
I chose to put the product all over my face for this review. The instructions tell you to apply to your entire face, but normally I would just put this on my nose. When I applied this product onto my face, I felt a tiny tingling feeling. It was quite refreshing and cooled my face. The product comes out in a whiteish/light green color and has a scent redolent to flowers. The smell wasn't over powering and was actually really pleasant. The instructions tell you to leave the product on for 5 min. / till it dries which is what I did. You know the mask is dry when it turns a pure white color. After it dries, you can wash it off with a wet cloth.

To be honest, the first time I used this product, I did not feel as if it did anything for my skin. However after using this mask for a couple times, I was able to notice a tiny difference. My face feels more refreshed and my blackheads have faded. Personally I don't think any mask is going to remove your blackheads completely, but they can definitely help prevent and loosen them.
One thing that I like about this product in comparison to others is that the clean and clear blackhead eraser isn't as drying as other mask. I didn't put moisturizer on and my skin wasn't dying from dryness after.
The only downside to this product is that you must regularly use it in order to see results. I tend to forget to use this or I just become too lazy. Other than that, I would recommend this product to you guys. For under $5, it cleanses my face without being too harsh on my skin!
