Other than the occasional break out, one skin problem of mine that always irked me is my oily nose! The rest of my face is well-behaved 99% of the time, but my nose (and all of its oversized pores!) can be a major oil factory! With all of this hot weather, it only gets worse so I headed over to my neighborhood Walgreens to look for a mask that I could use a few times a week to tame the oiliness as much as possible. What I walked out with was Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask from Neutrogena ($7.99).
Clear Pore can be used two ways: as a daily cleanser to kill everyday bacteria or a mask for deep cleaning and extra oil control. I thought that was pretty cool because although I was more interested in using it as a mask, my husband could use it as a cleanser (and who doesn’t like a multi-use products!).
Following the instructions, I applied a thin layer of clear pore on my face and left it on there for about 5 minutes. The thick, cool cream dries fast and you can feel it working right away. I felt a tingly sensation around my nose, which needs the most oil control! After five minutes, I rinsed it off with warm water and my skin felt very clean and smooth.
I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and I like it. I haven’t seen a dramatic decrease in the oiliness of my nose but it’s definitely helping ward off those nasty pimples that like to show themselves from time to time! I’ll be continuing to use it as a weekly mask to get my oily nose under control!
Do any of you ladies have the same problem? What do you use?
