update: i didn't follow the 2-week challenge, but i noticed that when my pores are cleaner, they look smaller. since i have combination skin - oily + dry - I get blackheads on my pores
so when i exfoliate with my Salux towel, it cleanses the pores and if I use the Queen Helene masque, it helps tighten my pores a bit.

I got this set that Sephora offered in exchange of 500 points from Boscia.

It has

1 Pore Purifying Black Strip
1 Luminizing Black Mask
1 Revitalizing Black Hydrating Gel
1 Detoxifying Black Cleanser

I am going to use the cleanser morning and night daily; use witch hazel or watered acv as toner, then use the hydrating gel also in the am and pm, and try the black mask twice a week.

If those things help me out a bit with my enlarged pores, I will buy the regular size items.

I tried the black mask on my cleansed face, but applied only on my t-zone. I peeled it off after 30m or so. I didn't see any difference to be honest.

I still have a whole container of Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque, so I am going to apply every day on my t-zone until it dries off then remove it - as per the video I posted in the previous page.
I may do this for 10 days or 2 weeks. I want to see if that will help keep the pores a bit "clean" so they will be less gross looking.

I am still trying the Queen Helene's masque. Later today I am going to do the Boscia black mask on my t-zone only.
I am still following the Boscia regimen, except for one day this week that I didn't do it because I read in a book that you should give your skin a day off from all the skincare products.

So I did the Queen Helene's 10-day challenge. What I noticed was clean pores, and sometimes tighter pores. Some really shrunk but most stayed the same. I think it is worth it to do it, especially in antecipation to some special event.

I started 3 nights ago to apply Green Peeling Oil (GPO) on my face, so I am not doing the Boscia regimen at night. I apply one layer of GPO on Tuesday night, 2 layers on Wednesday night, but on Thursday it was very uncomfortable to apply only 1 layer, so I stuck to that.
I am going to apply 2 layers today, unless it burns.

Well, after my semi fail doing the green peeling oil, I noticed a small change on my face, and my pores seem to behave better.

When the micropeeling was over, I did a zinc mask which is a mixture of vitamin A + diaper rash cream.
I use Boudreaux - the red tube - and mixed it with a bit of vitamin A that I got >>> here.

I went to sleep with this masque and in the morning I removed it and applied some sheet mask on my face just 'cause, for about 15 minutes. My face actually didn't look or felt dry. Anyways, after shower, I noticed most of my pores were tight and much less visible.

I think the Green peeling Oil can be useful for people with large pores. I did not follow instructions correctly and that's why I did not experience peeling like most people do.
You can buy it >>>here.
More info on the GPO; reviews, pics, experiences with it >>>> here.

I do want to find some makeup to help with my pores because I know I may never find a skincare solution to it so makeup will have to do it. I'm still on the lookout for it.

I am getting back to the Boscia regimen.

I may do again the 10-day clay masque challenge using Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque. But to be honest I don't think I need it....

I have been sick since last Sunday, but I am getting better, so today I will apply the Boscia Black Mask on my face and get back on the Boscia regimen.
My pores are still a bit tighter than it used to be, so I recommend doing the Green Peeling Oil. I plan in doing it again if not next week, sometime in March, before my Spring Break.

I also think the QH Mint Julep masque really helped my pores to be much much less clogged. They are indeed large, but now they are cleaner, so that makes them a bit less noticeable.StarStar


Oh! I am also doing my zinc mask twice this week, maybe 3x, since last week I didn't take care of my skin at all.

never heard of it, but i googled it and found a study about it saying that concluded that it works in the reduction of sebum in the pores.
i saw good reviews on amazon for one with 5% niacinamide.
i am going to consider that
