The Muse has already attacked the stubborn blackheads on her nose with the Sana Pore Vacuumer Hot Gommage and failed epically but she was up for battling the rest of her face with the Sana Pore Vacuumer Hot Cleansing Gel.
Jump ahead to see how that battled worked out.
I don’t have blackheads on my face but I was still into the idea of a hot cleansing gel. I love the Biore Self Heating Mask so I just assumed that Sana Pore Vacuumer Hot Cleansing Gel would be a mess free way to get my fix on because you know, those damn pods from Biore are so bloody messy aren’t they?
Sana Pore Vacuumer Hot Cleansing Gel is supposed to have a heating effect which target stubborn blackheads, specially designed to use on the entire face plus it helps to tighten pores and visible reduce them. Obviously none of these problems plague me so I can’t say for sure if it’s working but if you want my honest opinion I’d say nay considering most “pore” cleansers like this don’t do all that a fab job of getting the gunk out!
Actually I was kinda disappointed at the promised heating effect as I didn’t get much? You’re supposed to use this on a clean, dry face. The formula is a sticky gel which you massage into skin for a few minutes and rinse. You can also leave it on as a mask treatment and rinse after 5 minutes. Either way the heated effect was very tame and I didn’t experience the full effect. Maybe I got a bad tube? Dunno..but no heat here.
Knowing Sana’s track record with products like this I’d say it was probably a tad gimmicky but the good news is it does feel like a nice deep clean, leaves my face feeling very clean, and doesn’t dry me out so I’ll continue using until I run out but probably won’t purchase again.
Available at Sasa.
