Strangely satisfying, but only OK
Purchased

I call this stuff "plant glue." It is this strange fun sticky goop that goes on thick, dries tacky, and comes off in very satisfying globs. You feel like you're really pulling crud out of your face, hence the satisfying bit...but the globs are just the plant glue coming off in chunks, and I'm not really sure how much pore buildup/blackhead goop this actually removes. Like, if I did a before and after, maaaaaybe I'd see a couple of clogged pores reduced, but not unclogged?

It's a nice treat and feels like you're doing something happy for yourself, which is part of the whole beauty battle I think, but I'm not going to keep stocking it once I'm out.

never knew I needed this so badly!
Purchased

I am not a blackhead prone person but my nose has been getting them lately so I figured I should try it. It's pretty great. Gets the goods out and doesnt irritate my skin. Def forcing my husband to try it!

Not what I expected
Purchased

The description made this sound like all my blackheads would miraculously disappear. They do not. In fact, I am not certain I can see a difference at all. I also don't like the greasy feel after I remove the product. Ick.

Pretty good
Purchased

I think I need to use this product a little more consistently to reap the full benefits but so far it works pretty well for me. I have found that it take a couple minutes after I scrub and rinse off to see any results; my skin glows and my pores are about half as empty with gunk. I have noticed this especially on my nose where I constantly have black heads popping up. I usually leave it on for about 10 minutes and try to really scrub to get the product into my skin. The only negative I would say about this product is the alcohol smell when you first put it on. It goes away soon after but its a little irritating to my eyes.

Good Product
Purchased

I bought this product to help reduce my pores and blemishes. I noticed a difference after the first use, my pores seemed smaller and the break outs were reduced. The only dislike I have about this product is that it doesn't come off easy. The serum is thick and while the instructions say to lather off with water, I had to scrub it off. However I do like the results and the extra minute removing the serum is worth the outcome.

Disappointed
Purchased

I purchased this based on rave reviews (though now I see others that are more like the one I'm about to leave). This did absolutely NOTHING for me -- tried several times, even left it on twice as long as recommended, to no avail. I know for a fact that it didn't work because I followed up with the only 2 tried & true methods I've found to declog pores: nose/face strips & an extractor tool. I'll continue to search for a pore declogging product that is less time consuming (and a bit more, uh, graceful, shall I say?) than the aforementioned tried & true 2. -- but this ISN'T it.
P.S. Oh yeah, it also left a gross greasy film on my skin after removal. Yuck.

actually works!
Purchased

I have always been looking out for blackhead remedies, and this product actually works. I saw results after the third or fourth time using, so be patient! but it really does work- my pores are smaller and blackheads almost gone. I will definitely continue to use this to totally eliminate blackheads.

Satisfyingly disgusting
Purchased

I've struggled with blackheads on my nose for years, and while I'm not sure that this product completely obliterates them, it certainly makes me feel like I'm putting up a fight. It's a little weird at first, but after a few days I did notice that my pores looked smaller and less clogged with gunk.

Am I not doing it right?
Purchased

I've only used this a few times so far, so I'm not giving up on it yet, but I am a little confused. I apply it in a thin layer and let it sit for 10, sometimes almost 20 minutes. When I go to rub it off nothing happens. I'm read of others having the product gather almost like rubbing glue off that pulls out the dirt, but I don't notice that at all. If anything when I apply it I have a hard time getting it to not ball up and rub off in spots before I even let it sit for the suggested time (kind of looks like rubber cement when applying).
Very unsure about this product, hoping I will figure out the trick to using? If not, I'll be very dissappointed to have given this pricey product a try.

Great!!!
Purchased

This product worked exactly as I wanted it to! I get a lot of redness around my nose & chin due to pores & blackheads. Using this product just once made my skin look and feel great! I kept it on for about 15 minutes, then kind of massaged it around, then washed it off. Pores were tiny and most of my blackheads were gone!
