I finally had a chance to sit back, relax, and put some crap on my nose - in hopes of getting actual crap of my nose. Did it work? Olalala.. Lemme tell u!
First I was advised to use the (a bit expensive RM45) Green Tea Grommage first. I slathered it on my nose and waited until it was half dry, then I massaged with vigor for about 1 minute. Then I rinsed it off and tada!
Fine, unlike the picture that they have plastered in the store next to the product (some white dude's nose before and after using the grommage) I did not get my nose 100 percent clean (more like 50%) - nor did I really expect it to work that well either.
Ok I lied.
Of course I'm looking for that miracle blackhead cure that I don't have to pull (painfully) off my nose every (single damn) week \(>.<)/ Cause not only is it a pain in the ass to wait for that sort of thing to dry, it just is a pain in the ass to pull it off your nose, and to top that off.. to do that every week... Eeee.
Anyhoobala ... So after that I was instructed by the beautifully made up girls at Faceshop to apply the White Mud Nose Pack with burdock (RM19.90 cheap!) on my nose, which by now was a bit raw from the previous rubbing. I slathered the gooey white stuff on and ta da! Waited for the damn thing to dry.
So dry it did in about 5 mins and as I painfully removed the plaster all I could think of was, "damn, fark, fark, fark, ow, damn".
But I did end up at about 80% cleaned out. Which to me is awesome, cause those Biore strips don't seem to work no more. So was I satisfied, of courseee. Why not? Pain so what? As long as it works.
My own irks about gooery nose peels is that sometimes you get that "pore" effect, where your pores "breathe" and you end up with a holie plaster nose on some parts at the end of the day.
Now I have to admit this is not my first liquid nose plaster peeling product. My first having been from Shiseido, much more expensive (can't seem to remember the price), and it seriously didn't work.
But maybe cause I bought it and never used it until 1 year later. Cheh.. who knows la.. (O.o)..

Note* Yes I have tasted everything that goes on my face. Some times its salty from the salt granules, sometimes its sugar, but this time .. its so weird. It's not either. Awesome new taste! Hehehehehe. Ick.

I liked nice smelling things. I love(d) anything in cutesy containers. I still do \(^-^)/
But then ... (O.o)... then I got my first wrinkle. Well it was more like I got 2 at the same time. Actually to be honest, I didn't notice that I had a wrinkle until the lady at the counter (Body Bar @ Tropicana City Mall) told me I had two. So of course I freaked. I freaked and bought a whole bunch of stuff. And that was when I fell into the organic movement trap.
Mukti Moisturizer: Balancing Facial Creme
Mukti Rosehip Eye Gel (day) & Mukti Eye Balm (night)
Up until a week ago my face was 'totally' organic (for about 2 months) with me using a range of Mukti & Remedica (Australian) products which I was quite obsessed with. Them being all organic and stuff. "Was" being a key word here, it's safe to say that I am semi over it. Now that was quite oxy-moronish, lol.
Admittedly going organic (0nly on my face) was a frantic phase in life for me. I had just started a new job and was sleeping late nights and working late hours. This new lifestyle gave me my first two wrinkles (yep, I would stare and stare and count them over and over again), aka crowfeet, and after a week at my new job I began to look like Ling Ling the panda.
So when the promise of no more wrinkles and panda eye pads was offered, I grabbed it up .
Yes, I do have sucker printer over my forehead - which blinks in neon pink every so often - especially when accosted by people selling stuff; pretty much selling anything really. (0.O)...
So was I happy with my new organic products? Yes very.
Until my face turned to the oily side of the force. Who knew organic didn't mean perfect for the skin?
But I do admit that even though I still look like Ling Ling the panda with my undereye circles, the wrinkles have gone thanks to Mukti's Eye Blam. But the puffiness is still there even after I've been using for a month Mukti's Rosehip Gel. But that could be due to me not sleeping till 3 in the morning though :P
That's where the problem started. The Anago paste as it turns out dried out my skin, forcing my skin to manufactor more oil then my face actually needed. Therefore I have been left with oily skin that has been breaking out for the past two weeks.
It's so "pepto bismol" cute. Seriously, its pink mud.
I'll try it out for a month before I come to any conclusions about it though. But for now I have to say it's the cutest pepto bismol pink mud I have ever, ever seen. Plus I love how light and delicate it's fragrance is. I really do feel soooo spoilt when I play with this product. And so far that would be 2 times. Hehehe. I likie.
Oh and P.S incase y'all were wondering what I did with the 3 bottles of Mukti balancing creme, 2 tubs of Anago Facial wash, 1 eye balm, and 1 rosehip eye gel ... \(>.<)/ .. Ya la I know la, alot of money wei... Well I'm planning to give it to my mama. I am guessing she won't mind the extra moisture lor. Muahahahaha. But I may keep a tub of the left of Anago (1st tub I bought - still have wan) for trips. They are sooo useful when you put them into smaller bottles and take em around with your in your purse. Especially when you realize at the rest stop on the highway that the soap they have ... isn't really soap..just weird white.. slimey .. eeee.. you get my drift.
So hai lor. Not total waste!
Ok, ok, I'll stop adding to this post.

I have truly been inspired by these women who have made it a point to inform others about their purchases whether it be good or bad.
Here's hoping I don't disappoint.
