This Korean Beauty Brand Thinks It's Solved Blackheads for Good
It's practically a scientifically proven fact that your blackheads are never as big, or as bad as you think they are. We can also guarantee nobody else is inspecting your face (or pores) that intimately. Although, if they are, and it's anybody but your facialist, you should politely remind them that personal space exists for a reason.
Because we're of the mind that cleanliness (and in this case, clean pores) is next to godliness, we're willing to try almost anything to get those suckers out. The cheaper, weirder and more obscure the product the better in our eyes. Bonus points also go to labels in foreign languages — because half the fun is not being entirely sure what you're putting on your face, right?
So what if there was a product designed to satisfy your blackhead obliterating desires, but wouldn't allow your face to become collateral damage? Enter: CosRX Blackhead Silk Finger Balls. Basically any product that looks this weird, has this much novelty and involves the words "blackhead removal" has our attention.
Now, we could make a joke about the idea of rubbing balls all over your face . . . but because we're exceptionally mature and professional, we're not going to do that. Instead, let's just say that if your aim is to go all Marie Kondo on your nose — then this is the Korean beauty product for you.
To get started, first pick your target zone (or victim blackheads — however you want to look at it), then after soaking the silk cocoons in warm water, pop one on your finger and rub in circular motions, focusing on the areas you want to obliterate. Just a warning in advance, the process is so satisfying you'll probably get addicted and be asking your roommate/boyfriend/cat if you can do their nose, too.
After a few rounds of continued use, you'll be well on your way to almost blackhead-free skin (nobody's perfect, right?). And take comfort in the fact that literally everyone is walking around with a whole heap of dirt in their pores. Just be thankful that if you're reading this article, you're probably sporting way less grime on your face than most people.
