It’s a frustration to look at the mirror and see those irritating small black or white bumps on your nose, forehead and some part of the face. Sometimes, i can’t even take it that i would just prick it to remove what’s inside of it.
During my teens, i rarely got a chance to have pimples or black-heads but when i got pregnant, all those black heads appeared on my face that even made me cry and angry. I guess, that’s what studies says that during your menstruation or pregnancy the production of sebum increases and does the reason for the breakouts. Now, how come it was black? Because of too much oil and our skin is exposed to the air , it oxidize and eventually turn to black. Too much oil in our face can product break outs.
One way to remove black heads is trough extractions and proper skin care regime. Beauty clinics offers extraction but for a busy mom like me, going to the spa can consume precious time.
Ciracle, a korean brand has the specific product that can help you say good bye to that irritating blackheads and pimples too. Can be used for all skin type, this good-bye blackhead off cotton mask is very easy to use. I have used different mask before but this one is different. So, i have to carefully study the procedure as not to miss anything.
So, for the trial;
Get the black heads sheet out of the pack and stretch it and place them over your nose . The sheet should be placed accordingly to avoid any air bubbles
Leave the sheets for about 15 minutes (as suggested on the pack) to gain maximum result. However, do not let it dry so you need to remove the sheet if it is still moist.
Remove the sheet and use a cotton to wipe out the black heads.
Finish it by rinsing with clean water and there you are, a fresh black heads free skin.
Note from Ciracle;
1. You may feel a tingling sensation when using it for the first time. This is normal as the natural extracts and special ingredients are actively removing the dead skin cells.
2. If blackhead do not elevate as much, try rinsing the face with warm water or use a steamed towel on the face to open up the pores beforehand. When the sheet dries up while using it, air pressure and vaporization may push the blackheads back into the skin. So make sure you remove the sheet when it is MOIST, even if it’s been placed for less than 15 minutes. You can use 2 sheets overlapped for deeper blackheads. Also air bubbles may hinder the elevation of blackheads, so make sure the sheet is firm on the skin. Moistening the sheet with water or plastic wrapping around it can give better results. Pores are sensitive to temperature, so avoid using it in cold weather/area.
3. It is recommended to use the product everyday for the first week to remove excess blackheads. Afterwards, use 1-2 times/week for dry-normal skin, 2-3 times/week for oily skin. However, you can use as often or as seldom as you want depending on the skin condition.
4. For more effective results, open the pores beforehand by using warm water or placing a steamed towel on your face for a couple of minutes.

To get maximum result for a beautiful black head free face, you can also use Ciracle toner and Ciracle Jeju Volcanic Clay Mask (read my review here) to remove the oil that caused stubborn black-heads.
