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 softener, a mask that contains straverry polyphenol and a essence:
The process is as follows:
1. Apple the sebym softener – massage for 2-3 minutes. Rinse off.
2. Apply the sebum mask – this is gorgeous and smells of strawberries! Let it dry – it takes 20-30 mins. Pull it from from the bottom upwards, towards the hair.
3. Apply the refining serum.
In total you will spend about 40 minutes on this set. It’s not bad as you can just get on with things when the mask is on,
Does this work? Kind of. I noticed it pulled some blackheads out but not that many – just about as much as a pore strip.
Does it leave the skin feeling smoother? Yes! It does feel smoother and cleanser however – this is a big however – it hurts like a motherfu***r to pull out.
Don’t be fooled by its pink appearance or the soft strawberry smell. No. This stuff is like glue – the white stuff you had at primary school but it is EVIL, pure evil to pull off.
It absolutely hurt me so much and my skin was red afterwards from it. It felt sore and tender too – OUCH. This is for people with skin that’s tough, quite oily, and can put up with this kind of treatment. It is NOT for sensitive skinned girls.
If you are mad about something and feel like punishing someone, apply this to their face and tell them it’s ‘relaxing’.
Anyway I hated this and I’m too scared to use it again. I’ll reserve it for someone who could do with some torturing instead. Like Mr C.
I bought this from eBay for about £12.50 with shipping.
