I used to use nose strips to remove my blackheads. After watching tons of videos online that said this isn’t the best way to remove them, I had to find another solution. After scouring the internet, I’ve found the best method. Say hello to my CosRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid. First things first, what is BHA/AHA?
To sum the video up, both AHA and BHA are chemical exfoliants. AHA is water soluble. It is best for dry or damaged skin as it doesn’t remove the moisture in your skin. On the other hand, BHA is oil soluble. This can help break down the extra oil in your skin to help fight acne, blackheads, or whiteheads.
CosRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
BHA Blackhead Power Moisturizer is clinically proven to reduce the formation of blackheads and excess sebum is removed and hydrate the skin.
This product has a slightly thicker consistency compared to water. I use a cotton pad to spread it all over my face while avoiding my eye area. It is best to wait for 20-30 minutes before proceeding to your next skin care step to make sure that the chemicals go into your skin and do its job.
After using it every other day for a month, I have seen that my nose area (probably my most problematic area when it comes to blackheads) has cleared out. I can see lesser blackheads and tighter looking pores. I can’t really say that it’s all thanks to this product since I also use other pore cleansing and tightening products but since I’ve used it I have no breakouts and lesser blackheads. This was something that hasn’t happened when I just used my regular pore cleansing and tightening products.
It retails for $17.57 on Style Korean. For that price, you get a 100mL bottle that can easily last you three months depending on the frequency of use. I personally don’t use it daily since I want to give my skin time to rest from exfoliation but there’s nothing wrong with using it daily just as long as you aren’t allergic or you don’t break out.
Overall, I highly recommend this product. We all have issues with acne, blackheads, and whiteheads and it is best to find a product that fights all these three without causing more issues for your skin in the long run. Stay away from nose strips and opt for chemical exfoliants like AHA or BHA to have healthier and clearer skin.
