So this is the 리오엘리 블랙헤드제로 코팩~ From a pack of 5, I have so far used 2. So I'm not obviously giving the full picture yet, just my preview and initial impressions upon the product and I can officially put this product in direct comparison with the 네슈라 까만 잠숮 코팩, so that's nice having something to compare it against.
A quick background overview into 리오엘리 though~
At the moment, Tia Hwang (Chocolat) is the model/face of 리오엘리. The brand itself began in 2003 and by 2007 their BB creams were ranked top of the online market. They were awarded best cosmetic brand by CMN and they're based in the Gangnam-gu area of Seoul.
Oh and one last point. If you didn't already know~ the logo is based upon Cinderella's carriage ㅋㅋㅋ
cosmetic-love for it, in comparison to other patches that's really cheap! They came in a pack of 5 and most are in individual packs...which I find kind of inconvenient~ I used/will use this every other week so this pack will last me 10 weeks~
to answer that, I think you just need to look at the photos~ the gross white stuff is actually part of my nose skin...like that's all of the dead skin that's come off, I'm not sure whether it got rid of many blackheads to be honest, but it did get rid of the dry skin along my nose. This patch seems to just dry out the skin and get rid of it, making it easier to get rid of the blackheads.
The patch actually claims to "instantly clean clogged pores" and "removes blackheads". Personally I'm not so sure about the second one as much, but for £2, it does a good job to be honest!
I do actually really like this patch and I'll be buying these ones again. They're easy to use, cheap and even if they don't get rid of every blackhead in the world, they get rid of all of the gross dry skin along the bridge of my nose and down the sides~ so that's always nice. Because it drys out the skin a little as well, it means my nose isn't greasy.
So this patch is good for getting rid of dead skin and oil-control in my opinion.
|So, the gross bits on here are actually a ton of skin...|
I swear my nose must have halved in size with the amount of
skin it took off!
Anyway, it doesn't matter how gross it is because it works :D
