Trying this product was quite educational. I never realized how big my pores were until I used it…made me sad a bit.
However, I’m glad I tried it and despite the fact that it is time consuming, I would and will try other blackhead removals that are similar to this one. I have tried a different blackhead removal mask from Nature Republic, but it never worked too well because the mask was too big for my nose. This one from Innisfree worked much better because it was smaller and fit my nose much better.
This product is great for anyone who has trouble with blackhead or whitehead on their nose, and works well on all skin types.
Using this product takes time, so make sure you have a whole evening to yourself to do this.
The product tingles a bit, NOT burn. If it burns then stop using it immediately. Your skin probably doesn’t work well with the serums on the cotton pad. Don’t touch it even if it feels like it’s moving. It’s not, the chemicals are just being bubbly on your skin. You leave this pack on for 15-20 minutes. Then, gently remove the newly exposed sebum (oil) from your nose with toilet paper.
*Be very gentle when doing the last part
This is just like your typical Biore strip or any other blackhead removal strips. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes or until it hardens. Make sure to not use too much water on your nose before applying the strip. If you use too much, then the product will bleed through the cotton mask and not work as well. Remove from the edges first.
This last mask helps tighten up your newly cleaned out pores. It’s like a thin cotton or paper mask on your nose with serum attached to it. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Gently pat the excess serum into your skin and enjoy your freshly cleaned nose!
Innisfree Jeju volcanic blackhead 3 step program is great for traveling since it is flat and can fold along the lines of separation for each step. I also like that I can place it in my skincare section of my vanity without having to rearrange many items that are already there.
I would recommend keeping this in a cabinet or on a shelf that isn’t exposed to direct sunlight.
Have you used this blackhead 3 step program or any other blackhead masks from other Korean beauty companies? What is your favorite blackhead removal mask? I’d love to hear your review, thoughts & experiences in the comments below!
