Gentle exfoliator. Does the job of pore strips minus the damage
I've been using this for almost two weeks now, for the first time. Bought this to minimize the appearance of sebaceous filaments (SFs) on my nose, it's a lot of those that I have and not really blackheads. One pump is enough to cover my face. It works the same job as those pore strips to remove gunk, without the risk of broken capillaries and damaged pores. But like pore strips, it can't get rid of the large, deep-seated SFs that make some of my pores look big. Maybe it takes a while before it can get those out, I tend to start picking on them first (but I should really stop doing that). At the very least, it prevents oil and dirt from accumulating, more than what cleansers can handle. This also helps in getting rid of my pimples and closed comedones. It's also too oily alone, but too drying when used with pore clay masks (~30 min time interval), though I feel like it extracts a lot of the gunk off my face so I moisturize nalang afterwards. So far so good, but works best when used with other products in a routine (I didn't really have a routine other than cleanser-toner and occasional pore strips before this so that might be common sense lang). I'll write a review again after a month or two if results improve.
