Minimize Your Pores!!

Hi Guys! If you had followed me on twitter, you will know that I had planned to do this post. What is this post about? *drumroll* PORES MINIMIZING of course!! I’ve been crazy over beauty products that claim pore minimizing or effectively remove blackheads! Below products are those that I had tried and guess what!? I think i found my love out of this 4 products! I’ll just show you what I’ve used (details post will be shown in provided link) and give you a summary of what I think/recommend towards the end! So now….. The most common product that everyone ever used (I bet) is Biore pore pack!

IMO, it does remove blackheads but probably only for the first time you’ll see blackhead being “pull” out.. Subsequently… (you know~) You’ll start wondering why your nose still looks the same (full of blackhead).. Well not long after I gave up on pore pack and decided to source for something else.. Then I was given Skinmiso Pore Minimiing Pack to try (from Bellabox)!! 20120909-010714.jpg “WOW” was my immediate reaction! It’s painless! It’s soothing! It’s amazing! (Biore pore
pack tends to be a lil painful when we remove it too late – it’s too dry!)20120909-010721.jpg It’s a 3 step pore minimizing pack but not tough to do at all..! If you want to be pretty, that’s the price you should pay – time! I’m not going details about it in this post because you can read my review from HERE and HERE. The next pore minimizing pack that I found is from Caolion! Read lots of (positive) review about it and decided to make this “investment”!! 20130324-002100.jpg Bought my Caolion from Qoo10 (Seller: Wishtrend)! This mask is slightly more time consuming than the previous.. Why? Because it’s a wash off mask and is preferably 2 step mask.. You can read the details of my review on this product HERE.. Now for my FAVOURITE pore pack!! SexyLook Blackhead Pore Cleanser Set!!!

This pore pack has a very sweet strawberry scent.. Not those disgusting sweet! It’s pretty pleasant to me!

20131002-194445.jpg

It’s also a 3 step pore pack but less time consuming and less messy.. All you need to do is apply the sebum softener (step 1) massage for 2-3 minutes then rinse off. Do it when watching TV, 2-3 minutes will just *poof* and gone. Then apply the strawberry sebum purifying mask. It’s a peel of mask! I love peel off mask!! This is why i said less messy! All you need to do is peel and throw and you can proceed to step 3 – pore treatment essence! The simplest step! Just apply and you’re done!

For result, I think Sexylook gave me the most satisfying result!! Seeeee!! Black heads! White heads! My nose is clean like hell!

For ease of use, it’s gonna be the traditional pore pack! ….But seriously for consumers who wants to remove black head I believe a little more “inconvenience” won’t be that difficult!

What are you waiting for?? Let’s minimize our pores together now!!!

Mask.. Masque?

It’s masking time again!!! bought some mask on qoo10.com.sg some time back and now.. here they are, resting in my fridge after their long flight!! 😀

From whitening to tightening to brightening to soothing.. wahhh… can’t wait to mask it sooon! would it be nice if we can mask everyday!??

Now these are something similar to Biore Pore Pack , just that it comes w a pore tightening cream,.

Update on 20 July: more mask arrived! these are cheaper but with more variety..

20120714-232655.jpg

20120714-232707.jpg

Twistband!! If u haven heard of twistband then u are (slightly) outdated thn me!!! I got to know Twistband from Bellabox in Q2 this year!! It’s actually a hair band that u can use to tie ur hair without leaving tie mark! And they comes in colorful colours….!

Just a bit sad that my twistband had a little defect. But the thot of contacting Bellabox for an exchange made mi… (think twice) accept how it is! To email them is a headache! I wonder all this beauty boxes company.. Are they really sooo busy? Din they put into consideration for time like this? Ok, or at least not for exchange but more of.. customer service/enquiries? Every time when they are gg to have something big, reply seems to slow down even more (already so slow then become even slower..)

Had tried calling them to enquire some stuff but was asked to email them instead. But their reply always take sooo… sigh~

Ok I think I drift tooo much! Back to twistband! You can grab yours at Bellabox e-store HERE!

20120715-000610.jpg

Review on 15 July evening:

20120715-195637.jpg

Wow.. This is not wat I expect yet not too different from what I expect too..

I expect something like Bioré pore pack? But looking at it’s packing I had expected it not to be like wat i expected! (gossh, am i confusing u??)

20120715-195650.jpg

As per its direction, I apply it on my nose for 10 mins. Initially, I feel a bit pinchy pain, quite annoying but bearable. Abt few sec ltr the pain is gone.

When I peel out the sheet, I dun see any whitehead/blackhead residue on my nose.. I had also used the Q-tip to exfoliate but… Nothing come out.. At that point I thought this was pretty useless..

20120715-195658.jpg

But still I decided to continue w the step 2!! This pack’s essence more gelish as compared to step 1 (watery)..

20120715-195706.jpg

I dono if I shd even post this pic cuz it looks the same as the previous one! But oh well…

Step 2 still has that pinchy pain feeling too but din last long.

20120715-195718.jpg

So after I remove …. Mi first reaction was….. “WOW!!! No more large pores!!! Wah!!! Whr’s my blackheads!?!??” Hahahah!!!

Tho this doesn’t works like Bioré pore pack whr u can see ur blackheads being “pull” out.. But… My nose really is much cleaner now!!

If bearing w these pinchy pain can change a clean nose back, seriously… I DON’T MIND!! Hahaha!!

Now I’m really tempted to buy some home!!

20120715-000638.jpg

Yes.. I know what u’re thinking!! It’s SKII again! My third set of SKII since my July Vanity Trove! It’s either SKII is having a promo or both VT and BB a good deal with them! But doesn’t really matter, 好东西不嫌多!

This SKII comes in a smaller pack then VT’s one but it comes with 2 extra items.. Cellumination skin care..

• Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser (6g)
• Cellumination Mask-in Lotion (10ml)
• Facial Treatment Essence (6g)
• Cellumination Deep Surge EX (2.5g)

20120715-001343.jpg

20120715-001351.jpg

I used the facial cleanser immediately since both (VT & BB) are like gvg out their products so hard!

It’s easy to lather into form but the form is not those very dense type like Ettusais.. But it does smells nice! Probably my skin is too thick? I dun feel anything special about it after washing.. It’s like “just another cleanser”..

20120715-001932.jpg

Aft cleanse, I used the cellumination mask-in lotion! Refreshing.. Nice scent too..

According to their tips, u can use it like a cool therapy (extra treatment on concerned area) too!

Read on and u’ll understand more..

20120715-002210.jpg

Review on 16 July:

ok it din show very well in this pic but the cream is in a bit pale purple-ish beige color! wah sound so.. hahahaha! but u have to visualise abit to be able to see the purple.. putting aside the color.. the cream contain shimmers.. i guess that is why it can create the radient look.

in this pic, u see my hand?? bling bling..! on my finger tip is Ettusais BB cream, ignore that! hahaha! im just putting on my daily makeup before heading to work!

Overall, i feel nth too special about it. but probably i just haven use long enuff..

Next is a… BONUS!!
