June 21, 2012

I've started using this TonyMoly Eggpore Blackhead Out Gel in the last 2 weeks.  I figure I should use it to keep my blackheads from forming so quickly and having to go through my pore strips equally as quickly.

It smells like an orange to me.  :)

So far, I don't notice any improvements or reductions in blackheads.  I've been using this every other day or every 2 days, but never in consecutive days, and never going longer than 3 days without using it.

Product review forthcoming!



Here is my review on the TonyMoly Eggpore Blackhead Out Gel.

Product claims to clear out blackheads by dissolving them.

There are many reviews out there that claim this product works as it should, more reviews that claim this product works half as well as it should, and a few more reviews that claim the product doesn't work at all.  This might depend on how deeply your blackheads are rooted in your pores.

My personal opinion:

I don't think this product works at all if you follow the instructions to massage it with your fingers.  First of all, the claim that this product will turn milky white as a result of dissolving the sebum in your pores is bogus.  The product turns milky white because it comes in contact with water.  I keep this in the shower with me and have to dip my fingers into the product.  My little stash of Blackhead Out Gel has developed this milky whiteness wherever excess water has dripped off my finger tips.  This is exactly the same concept with the Shu Uemura cleansing oils.

Results after using my fingers to massage the gel into my skin are less than impressive.  Yes, when you're massaging the oily gel into your skin, your skin feels soft and smooth because there's no friction!  But when you rinse and get out of the shower and look at what's left, 99.9999999% of the blackheads are still there.  And, no, I don't see that the blackhead size has changed.

I expected this product to work like the Biore pore strips and really clean out my pores.  ~Disappointed~


I have found a way to yield better results.  I use the Blackhead Out Gel in conjunction with the silicone face scrubber.

Using both together, you will see some reduction in blackheads.  The reduction in blackheads is maybe about 25-35% less than what you started with.  Of course, we could always attribute the reduction to the silicone face scrubber instead of the gel, right? 

Final Verdict:

I wouldn't get this again.  Don't get too caught up in the packaging even though it's as cute as a button.  If you really wanted effective removal of nearly 100% of your blackheads, stick with any of the pore strips that are out there.  They are much more effective than the TonyMoly Eggpore Blackhead Out Gel.  I hate to give a bad review of any cute product, but there it is. 

I hope this product review was helpful!  Thanks for stopping by!

I adore the packaging!

The packaging is cute. I think it's the only reason why I splurged on it in the first place. The box says that you can knock the egg yolk top off and plant a flower or bean in there after the product is all used up.

If I do something like that, I sure will post a picture for you ladies. ^_^

@aMz88 I've read a couple of reviews where they said it doesn't work. I'm not sure yet if it really does or doesn't but I will also update the post for my review after I've exhausted every possible way to make sure it works!

Other than that, it smells like an orange, which makes me happy! LOL!

Thanks for reading!

The product is so adorable.... I think it would be something I would be suckered into =3

I look forward to your review!

@Ari. It is one of the cuter packaged products I've bought. I think I've found a way to make it work better! Hopefully, PR coming in a few weeks! ^_^

I have the smoothing balm and it does nothing for me, although my pores are gigantor swimming pools lol

Kusanagi said...

@Anna Ho, you look really good to me! Sorry that the smoothing balm doesn't work for you. I was almost going to buy it to make a complete set of eggies, but I acknowledge that I'm just too lazy to spend THAT much time trying to fix my pores. LOL!
