Testing Pore Cleaner Vacuum

Originally I was planning to post March Glossybox but when I got it yesterday from Aramex office, I found out the packaging is really messed up and one of the items is missing. I’m sure one of Aramex workers messed up the packaging when he/she was checking the content of the box but I don’t know who to blame for the missing item. Anyway it was my last box before I cancelled it today since I’m getting overwhelmed with many products, I’ll reactivate it again soon enough.

I decided to post this review instead, it’s something I’m pretty sure you’ve seen floating on social media for awhile. I got it few months ago from LightInTheBox but it got discontinued, so I found it on eBay as well if you are interested.

How Does it Work ?

It’s a bit tricky and I would say it’s annoying, you have to gently press with your thumb on the cap that closes the battery area and it’ll stop working if you remove your finger so you got to hold it while using it.  While moving it around your skin, it supposed to have enough suction to clean the pores and remove blackheads.

Does it Actually Work ?

I have mixed feelings about it, it works but not as efficient as deep facials you get in salons. I would say it worked well on my T Zone but not as much as on my nose unless I keep my face in steam for awhile to keep my pores open. It’s more of a hustle to do that’s why I didn’t use it as much.

The Verdict

I don’t think it’s that useful if you’re looking for deep cleansing tools, the vacuum itself doesn’t have that much power to clean the pore without effecting the skin itself because it’ll give you red marks if you keep using it in one area.

Have you ever used this tools before ? What do you think about it ?

Beauty Finds

When I was pregnant, my skin got in a bad condition and some areas on my body were getting darker. It’s one of the things I don’t miss when I was pregnant so I was feeling insecure obviously after I gave birth because of the uneven skin tones and I do mean quite dark areas specially my neck. I tried way too many skincare products not only known brands so I decided to post my current favorite ones that worked for my skin.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel

I got this product on my Birchbox which I posted a review of few days ago but I didn’t had the chance to try it out so I didn’t write a review of it on that post. This peel is amazing and it made my face super soft that I couldn’t stop telling everyone about it. I highly recommend trying it out, I’m planning to buy the full-size from Birchbox.

Cauvery Herbal Face Pack

In my country we use sandal wood masks for beauty purposes and sometimes for soon to be brides like a tradition. So I got this product as a gift from an Indian lady and it wasn’t like a powder which we add water to as I’m used to it but it was packed with additional herbs and it takes a pasty form. It really helps in reducing acne and also the scars left by them, balances the tones of the face and leaves the face quite soft and clear. I should mention that it gives you a slight burning sensation when the paste is drying and it can leave your face a bit red after rinsing, if you have a sensitive skin.

MANUKA’S COSMET Bee Honey Cleansing

I bought this from a salon while I was pregnant and I liked it because it has more natural elements than chemicals. I used it as a daily cleanser and it leaves your skin clear, it doesn’t give any smell. I would recommend it if you want a natural choice of a cleanser than usual chemical ones.

SE100 Super Molt Essence – No.6 Vitamin-C

I bought this serum along with the Honey cleanser I mentioned above, it’s from a Japanese brand I guess because the description is written in Japanese. I used this serum after using the cleanser and it works like a toner in my opinion. I read somewhere that night creams work better with serums like this one so I take few drops mixing it with my night cream.

L’OREAL Paris White Perfect – Night Cream

This product is a must in my night skincare routine. I used it the day after I gave birth mainly because I wanted my neck to return to it’s original tone and makes it whiter along with my face and it worked. I use this every night before I sleep and I like that it doesn’t give you the heavy creamy feeling after applying and it gets absorbed by the skin pretty fast. Would totally recommend it for new moms for sure.

So these are the beauty finds that worked for my skin at the moment, I do enjoy trying new products to see what works best for me. Do you know any of these products ? If not what’s your favorite skincare routine necessities ?
