I ordered the Etude House Black Head Sleeping Paste because, obviously, I want to get rid of my black heads. You too?
Here's my review so you can decide whether this product will be worth your money or not~
The packaging is cute isn't it?
The product is filled up with a greyish, slightly mint colored paste.
Brand: Etude House
Name: Black Head Ghassoul Sleeping Paste
Price: About 12,000KRW

It does smell like clay so the scent is very natural. There isn't really anything more to say about this. After applying it to your face, you won't smell it anymore after a few seconds ^^
About the texture: It's a very thick, smooth, creamy paste. It's not sticky or anything and is easy to apply.
After your usual skincare routine, just apply the paste on your nose using your fingers. If you feel like it, you can steam your face before the application so that your pores open up (I'll do that next time and update this post). I think this isn't some "magic product" that removes all your blackheads in one night. It's a gradual process~ You're supposed to use it 1-2 times a week. ... T^T I'd like to use it more like every 2 days. But there's a reason they say once or twice a week so I guess I'll just follow their instructions.
Here's how the sleeping pack looks once it's applied:
|Gonna go sleep now. Good night lovelies~|
After sleeping for 9 hours this is what the sleeping pack looks like:
|My skin is always so milky-white after I wake up... I wish it'd stay like that throughout the day :/|
And a close-up:
Out of 13 ingredients, 11 are very good and 2 are okay. A lot of cosmetic products contain ingredients that really aren't very good for your health. I'm happy to say this isn't one of them! But it does contain palm oil - palm oil production leads to massive devastation of rain forests in Malaysia and Indonesia :(
The results were actually better than I had expected. I hope the blackheads won't return though! Whenever I use nose strips my blackheads return within a few days... I'll update this post ^^
The product isn't exactly easy to remove. I tried rinsing my face with lukewarm water but that only made the paste get more fluid again. So I used my Nature Republic Cleansing Jelly Pad and got off all the product.
Here's the results photo:
Sorry for the disgustingness D:
It didn't remove everything but like I said, it's not a "magic product". I can't wait to use it again and I hope that in a few weeks my blackheads will be all gone~ (My expectations aren't that high though tbh)
Stay tuned for updates :3
So... it didn't really improve that much. And what are those weird bumps D:
But that's probably because I didn't use it regularly T^T I kept forgetting to put it on! Anyway now I stuck a little note to my mirror in my bathroom reminding me of using the product every Tuesday and Friday. I'll update this post again in 2~3 weeks.
I hope it'll show nice results ^3^
