Clean Pores

When I was in the seventh grade I went through my hormone-change were I broke out with acne for the first time. It was not until I was in ninth grade that I got all up close and personal with my face in the mirror and saw whiteheads on my nose. It was so annoying because they would not get lost with a my cleanser.

I then started to rub my nose with a cotton pad soaked in a toner at night and the next morning my white heads were gone. I had to do this almost every night to ensure they were not coming back. Then I ran out of my trusty toner and had to find an alternative and I was NOT going back to those pore strips...they still haunt me.

I started to use the Origins Clear Improvement Mask to see if it could stop my whiteheads from popping up. My sister had bought this product the time she bought the Josie Maran gift set in December. 
Basic Information::Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores
1.7 fl.oz or 50 mL
Sephora (link)

Ingredients::Water (Aqua), Myrtus Communis Leaf Water (Myrtle), Kaolin, Bentonite (CI 77004), Butylene Glycol, Montmorillionite, Polysorbate 20, PEG 100 Stearate, Charcoal Powder, Xanthan Gum, Lecithin, PEG 150 Distearate, Propylene Glycol Stearate, Sorbitan Laurate, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol Laurate, Simethicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexl Glycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Trisodium EDTA, Dehydroacetate Acid, Phenoxyethanol
It has a very distinct scent, that if you smelled it you would understand. The formula has a smooth, plastic feeling. It is a bit sticky and it is not that easy to spread. It has a really nice cooling effect and dries in about 20 minutes.

I use this about once a week and I can see all my pores around/on my nose cleared the next day. It also helps with my acne by reducing the appearance of most of my pimples.

I like this a lot more compared to my toner method and of course the pore strip method. I would recommend this to anyone who want to get rid of those pesky blackheads and whiteheads around their nose or some acne. Tell me how you remove your whiteheads and blackheads in the comments below.
