Review : Holika Holika Blackhead Sponge Scrub Oil

June 25, 2013


Hello! I am here with another product to review again! This time it's to combat your blackheads! We all hate it, dont we!  photo 3_zps1cb1205a.png It never goes no matter how much we try to get rid of it. But you know, that squeezing it is a big NO NO? 

Since if you squeeze it, it will make the pores bigger, so the dirts can come again easier and becomes blackheads!

That's why all the beauticians are making blackhead oils recently. This one is from Holika Holika, my favorite brand from Korea  photo 17_zps5e02f649.png

It comes in a small plastic bottle that has transparent packaging to show the yellow oil inside. The combination of yellow and black is quite eccentric, and although the packaging isn't as magical as usual, but since the packaging is very simple yet sleek, I can put it inside my bathroom nicely! Also the packaging doesn't get dirty easily so all is good  photo 5_zps059e499d.png

It contains 50ml oil, and for nose, 1 pump is usually enough! It has a relaxing light massage oil scent, which I am not sure what it is made from, since all the ingredients are written in Korean. But it's very pleasant. Although the smell disappears very quickly after I put it on my nose  photo 14_zps9256a16c.png

The texture is not as thick as oil, because it spreads easily on skin and doesn't feel sticky. It is in fact moisturising enough to be used by those with dry skin
Moreover, those with sensitive skin might want to try this as well, since the exfoliator beads from this oil is very very fine. When you rub the oil on your face, the tiny beads will do the job for you to exfoliate the dead skins and remove your blackheads

I recommend to let it absorbed on your skin for about 3-5 minutes, before massage it gently with circular motion. After that rinse off, and even better if you put some mud mask to close up the pores again  photo 14_zps9256a16c.png

Anyway, I apologize if it's a bit gross for you  photo 3_zps1cb1205a.png But I tried to not exfoliate my nose for weeks so the blackheads show up better on picture so the comparison will be better

You can tell that the skin surface becomes smoother and the blackheads are removed nicely!
Yes not completely, because that was just one pic. But i have been using it for 2 months, and I use it everytime I feel my nose is itchy bcos of all the blackheads. I will keep using this regularly in the future because I think this product is quite nice, and doesn't cause irritation or redness!  photo 7_zpsb3b360eb.png

Simple & Clean Packaging
Can be used by all skin type, oily, dry or even sensitive
Soften the skin surface
Remove blackheads without pain
Comes with tiny beads to exfoliate dead skin cells


I would say that it's a great product to help you treating blackheads! No more painful squeeze to remove blackheads so it's good! And it will also help you to close the pores slowly because the blackheads are removed gently without damaging or opening your skin & pores

 But blackheads is very difficult to get rid off completely  photo 12_zpsa1b67bb4.png So the best thing we can do, is to keep maintaining and cleaning the area whenever it comes back

Good luck for us, being pretty requires effort  photo 13_zps0e34a866.png
