This product has ups and downs. It smells amazing, but isn't strong or purfumey. I used this the other day, and when I rolled it off (a sort of rough, dried-glue substance rolls off of your skin) my face had a thick layer of grease all over it. The 'rinse off' you're instructed to do on the bottle would hardly be sufficient. I washed my face twice after applying. I was so upset, and ready to box it up to return, but when I got out of the shower and looked in the mirror my pores were clear. I have had blackheads for 12 years, and I really felt like my skin was finally glowing. The downside is that opening up pores that have been stretched out for so long means they just pour out oil until they oxidize again, and you're practically back to square one (not to mention my pores over-producing has caused a couple large, painful blemishes). I used this again tonight with much less successful results. Much less 'glue' rolled off, and it didn't really do anything for my blackheads at all. Maybe I have a dud batch, but I don't know that I want to keep this. It strikes me as a gimmicky version of 'the OCM'.
