That's why I was so excited to try the Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips. Unlike some of the other strips that simply use a strong adhesive to try to extract those pesky black heads, these strips have a lot going on. It used charcoal powder to help extract and detoxify the skin, silica to control excess oil, and witch hazel extract to tighten pores.
Of course the strips are not cheap (6 strips for $15) but if you use them once a week like me, it makes a big difference.
By now you probably think I'm a product junky, but let me tell you...when you find one you like it's well worth it!
