Finally, I was able to review more products now postpartum. I've been aching to use the products I have for this year because I wasn't able to touch most of the beauty items I have since the start of the year.
Anyway, if you remembered on my previous post, I received some products from sponsors and I'm starting to blog them one by one. For now, let me start on the Pilaten Pore Strip which Miss Suzanne of Suzanne's Emporium gave me for trial.
She gave me 3 pieces of Pilaten Pore Strip together with the order I had from her last time. Since my favorite nose strip has been discontinued by The Face Shop, I'm thinking if this can replace that one. I tried it first on my nose area since I mostly have blackheads and whiteheads there. It did removed a little amount of the whitehead as you can see on the photo below. It may not be that obvious but it did what it says it would.
One thing I don't like here is the application. It tends to get messy because you need to dispense the product from the sachet using your bare hands. You can't even use an applicator for this product so make sure you have clean hands first. It is also written in Chinese and a little English. I didn't noticed the English text first so I removed the mask after 20 minutes when it dried up on my face.
Then I tried it on the whole face and amazingly, it removed some unnecessary very little facial hairs and whiteheads. I wasn't able to take photos of the after application though because the mask was broken into pieces and it didn't retained it's shape which is my face.
Yay for me! (｡◕‿ ◕｡)
- It dries well on the face unlike other pore strips I tried that even after siting it on the face for an hour, nothing happened.
- Removes whiteheads and blackheads.
- Leaves the skin smooth after application.
- Very cheap for only P18.
- Application is such a pain because it gets to be messy with bare hands.
- Even if it smooths out my entire face after application, skin tends to get dry. You can use a mist afterwards.
Price: P18 each
Bought from: Suzanne's Emporium
Size: 6 g.
I'm not sure if I'm totally liking it because I just hate the part where you get all messy during the application but effectivity-wise, it's okay. I'm hoping for a product which can be applied with more ease.
I think I'm still in the hunt for my next favorite nose strip/ nose pack though. Any recos? :)
