How To Get Rid of Blackheads
Using the PIL’ATEN 3 Piece Suite
You have to try this blackhead removing face mask — it’s gross and amazing.
You can’t see my blackheads here but you can see my faded nose freckles that I mistook for the object of my child-friend’s focused interest.
Blackheads haunt me. I get rid of them for a day or two and do all the face hygiene things you’re supposed to, but they always return, faithfully, like an indoor/outdoor cat. So when a friend told me about the ultimate blackhead mask that I just had to try, I concurred that I just had to try it.
The next step is to apply the “export liquid” that is meant to further-loosen your pores. You apply it by soaking cotton pads with the liquid, then pressing the pads to your face like you have a bloody nose for fifteen minutes.
Fifteen/twenty minutes later, once the mask hardens, you peel it off in one single, satisfying swath of sunburned-skin-like swipe. I would peel this mask off myself even it gave me blackheads, that’s how much I enjoyed this part. Then, of course, you have to show it to everyone.
My blackheads are in there!!!! You can’t tell because blackheads and the mask are monochrome, but the IRL visual equivalent is like four-o-clock leg stubble shadow.
You can follow all of this up with the toner that comes with this three-part kit if you want. I didn’t because I wanted to nap instead.
Let me tell you, though, this blackhead mask is amazing. It is better than Bioré wishes it could be. It is my new favorite thing, my Sunday ritual, a cool way to trick someone into thinking you don’t have a nose, like a Jack-O-Lantern, and well-worth the $29.99 plus shipping.
