This week #texturetuesday is featuring Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm from #innisfree and as you can see, there's a lot amount left. To be honest, this one doesn't really live up to its claims, at least for me. I've used it several times and the balm didn't work like what I expect.
This balm is supposed to dissolve the blackheads and clean your pores. The texture is like a balm in general with wax consistency, melt and turn into oil easily once it touches your skin. You only need to put a little on your blackhead area, rub it for around 5 minutes as it stated on the instruction then followed by a face cleanser. Yes, you need to wash it off because your skin will be so greasy.
The only positive thing is it makes my nose and chin area kinda smooth and soft. I can feel some texture but overall it feels like you just scrub your skin when actually you don't, so it's a plus point. But, the point of using this is to diminish those blackheads, and they were still there. In my case, the balm can't dissolve the blackheads, even whiteheads, and I didn't see it cleaned my pores either.
I tried a tip to use an exfoliating toner and a clay mask before using the balm. People said the balm will work even better that way. The result is another disappointment, I even woke up with a very rough skin, especially on my nose area. 😫
Before I bought it for myself, I've told two of my friends to buy it. They are really concerned with blackheads, more than myself, and they told me this one works like magic. It works well to dissolve their blackheads, even one of them use it every single day because she thinks the balm is that good. So, all in all, the result may vary.
What product do you use to reduce blackheads?
