Last night the Muse got home extra late and decided to do battle with the one or two stubborn blackheads on her nose.† It’s never a good idea to go into full on war with blackheads when you’re tired but she must have been terribly exhausted to attempt it.
As you may know from reading my past posts I’ve been full on at war with these blackheads for a while and my quest has lead me on many adventures to rid myself of them from the downright weird to the incredibly good way of winning this epic battle.
My search recently led me to Dr. Jart All Out Black Head as it gets rave reviews in Korea. Asia understands the drama of blackheads so of course I was ever trusting that Dr. Jart was going to rid me of evil blackheads.
Take the jump and find out.
Before I give you my review allow me to tell you that Dr. Jart is sold in the US now. W00t! Yup, yup from the popular BB Ceams to the skincare range most of it is up and available at the Dr Jart US site. The prices are somewhat higher than what you’d pay in Korea but it’s still directly from the source. Dr. Jart’s BB Creams are pretty popular so it’s a rather great time to haul, particularly because BB’s aren’t exactly easy to come by in the US.
If you’re interested you can find them at www.drjartus.com
Now…about Dr. Jart All Out Black Head…..
So what is it? It’s basically a gentle mask that works at dissolving blackheads that are hanging out in enlarged pores around your nose or face. I purchased it for my nose as that’s the only place I get blackheads. It’s a gel like formula that dries down to a sticky web-like mask. It’s not a painful mask that you have to rip off, nor does it dry down to a hard texture or the likes. It simply starts off as a gel and dries down to a sticky jelly.
Basically you massage it on and let it sit for 10 or more minutes. Afterward simply wipe away with a warm wash cloth, wash your face, and supposedly your woes of black heads are gone.
Now I can’t speak for my face or cheeks because as I mentioned above I don’t have a blackhead problem in that area but I can say it didn’t do much for my nose. I admit I was somewhat shocked as Dr. Jart is a pretty good brand of product and I expected incredible results. Not the case. I noticed no difference in either stubborn or lower key blackheads that don’t need a ton of work to remove. I’d probably get better results by using a simple nose strip. I was somewhat hopeful this would be a miracle solution for the more stubborn black heads that even a strong nose strip fails at removing.
This was purchased for me from Korea direct for 22,000 won which is about $18. They are selling it on the Dr. Jart US site for $28 dollars….honestly neither price is worthy of it. I wouldn’t bother. If it didn’t work on my nose I’ll probably go ahead and say it won’t work on clogged pores and the likes. I might consider repurchasing it if it was say $5 but it’s so not worth it’s almost $20 price tag in Korea and it’s nearly $30 one here in the US.
Oh well….back to my quest to find the best remover for these pesky blackheads on my nose.
Someday my ship will come.
