Today I am going to review the Holika Holika pig nose clear blackhead steam starter and the pig nose clear blackhead peeling massage gel
Holika Holika promised that the pig nose clear blackhead steam starter helps to open your pores while reduces dirt from the pore. Its pink clay ingredients helps absorb excess sebum and soften stubborn blackheads .
Application of the product is after cleansing, applied to area affected by blackheads and massaged for 3 minutes. Lukewarm water should be used to remove the product.
After using this product for around three consecutive weeks, using it at least two times a week, I have noticed a slight difference.I have very stubborn blackheads on my nose that I cannot seem to get rid of and this product definetly helped remove some of them. However not all 😦 .
The gel consistency of the product is very nice to massage into the area, the fact that it warms up is also a big plus to really loosen those blackheads.
I did see results and I did like the product. This gets a 3.5 rainbow out of 5 from me and a future repurchase stamp from me as well!
The ingredients of the product are as follows: Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance(Parfum), Moroccan Lava Clay, Kaolin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Water, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben.
The product does contain a large amount of parabens, but I would rather have parabens than a product which expires in a short amount of time!
P.S I highly recmmend that you use this product at least two to three times a week to get results. Using it only once a week resulted in no change!

Next we have the Holika Holika Blackhead peeling massage gel. From the name you can guess that it is a gel.
The product is promises to remove dead skin cells and soften/loosen blackheads for easy removal. Aloe Vera extract minimizes pores, clams and moisturize.
Product should be applied to area then after three minutes be massaged in. Finally product removal should be by using lukewarm water.
The gel also warms on application to area and on rubbing it forms balls so as to scrub the are clean of blackheads.
Unfortunately, this product did not work for me. I did not see any results even when I applied almost everyday. This product just did not work on me :(.
I tried also using it after using the steam starter since that wat my pores would already be open and the peeling gel would easily remove them but alas it was not meant to be.
And so, it is with a heavy heart that I give this product a 1 rainbow out of 5. I will not be repurchasing this item for sure.
