Here are the items I used:
- Pig-Nose Black Head System,
- Spa Life Collagen Lip Mask, and
- SOO AE Collagen Essence Mask
I picked up the 3-step system from Ulta (I think), the Spa Life Lip masks from TJ Maxx (I swear I just wrote TJ Mask), and the sheet mask from a swap.
Round 1: Blackhead removal and lip mask!
I must admit, I had not tried a blackhead removal mask before I got this product. I didn't think I had blackheads, and I was validated to find out, after removing the second step, that I really don't have that issue. Score!
Lip masks look silly as hell and leave you speechless and immobile, due to their jelly wiggly nature. I have been wearing matte lippies constantly, and I already had something stuck to my nose, so why not make it look even worse? As you can see below...
Hahahahahaaaaaa! Awesome, right?! My skin looks pretty fab here, actually, thanks to my new phone's filter. I call it the "you wish your skin looked like that!" filter.
It was time for some soothing and smoothing hydration after ripping the skin off my nose, so I finished with the SOO AE Collagen Essence mask. The fit, as you can see, leaves a bit to be desired. Apparently I have a small face, which is something I have never considered before. Eh, it could be worse, right?
I didn't find anything extra special about the SOO AE mask. It was quite soothing and had a lot of leftover essence to use on my hands and feet, which I appreciate. It was the perfect pick to use after something stripping, like a nose mask for blackhead removal. I would not go out of my way to repurchase, but I would swap for it again!
Have you tried any of these brands or similar products?
