Missha Blackhead Clear Oil

What are blackheads?
Blackheads are common seen to our nose because we barely know that it can also be seen at our back or neck. The pores produce too much oil or sebum from the sebaceous glands, get stucked, and the dust and dirt from our environment makes it black.

What is pricking?
It is a part of facial procedure to the clinic where the facial skin is cleansed, the pores are sometimes pricked because of the whiteheads or blackheads present to your face. Usually, they use a metal thing to push the blackheads out of your skin that could be the painful and teary-eyed part, yet it is an assurance that the pores are clean after. When you had your facial service  it is advised to do it regularly (once a month or after two months maybe) because the pores are all ready opened where it get more chances of the dirt to get trapped with the pores.

The Story
When I was in college, my skin started to accumulate more dirt because of my travel to go to school from Novaliches to the known heavy traffic EspaƱa. I couldn't care less with my skin because of the 7AM - 7PM class I had where we were all jammed with laboratory class in the morning and a notebook-and-pen classes in the afternoon. Everytime I had my semestral break, it is where my skin got refreshed and so every summer. The problem is, only the month of October and April where I'm blackheads-free and the pores to my nose are larger so I stopped having my facial.

When I began to be in the working world, I had used two products all ready concerning to my blackheads but it didn't come to meet my expectation not until I found this one: Missha Blackhead Clear Oil
Missha Blackhead Clear Oil

Missha Super Aqua
Blackhead Clear Oil

Oil cleanser to remove blackhead in deep pores
>Deep cleansing
The salt particle from dead sea helps remove blackhead and whitehead in deep pores and the massage beads vitalizes the skin

>Sebum control
Grape seed oil and green tea oil remove impurities and excess sebum secretion and camellia oil with anti-oxidation effect prevents blackhead.

What did I do?
After cleansing the face, I poured a pea-sized to my fingertips and applied it to my nose. It is very easy to use because of the convenience of the packaging it has.

Massage it for 5 minutes and be sure to have those beads because those are the one that helps to remove the blackheads. After that, I soak my face towel to the lukewarm water to remove the blackheads and whiteheads to my nose and so to remove the oil.

Lastly, I applied it with Missha Super Aqua Toner to close my pores.

What can I say?
The effect is immediately noticeable. You may not really love the smell of this one, but the toner is really the pleasant one. This is valued P1,250 but worth the price. I've been using it for three months now and yet there's still 3/4 left on my bottle. Now, I do not need to have my facial and to cry like a child whenever my nose are pricked and not have that "tiis ganda" anymore. Well. I do not discouraged you to have your facial for we do not all have same skin type. This is just my own way of taking care of my skin and thus it saves my time. Why do I have to wait for my turn to the clinic's lobby when there's a product that could answer to my skin dilemma, isn't? :)

  1. I hate having facials because of excessive pricking. After the session, i have to go straight home kasi i looked like rudolph na. Thanks for posting this, the product looks promising.

    1. hahaha! natawa ako. true. nagiging rudolph din ako kapag galing sa facial eh

  2. That's a better option that going to the derma often. Thanks for this.

  3. I have blackheads and whiteheads on my nose area but this one is quite expensive for me. I use pore strips lang e. Hehe.

  4. Blackheads are really annoying so this really helps clear them up.

  5. nice beauty review. keep it up jam. i never thought that i can aid black.whiteheads just by using that product.

  6. nice review but a bit expensive for a cheapskate like me. I use pore strips or iwhite Korea facial mask.
