I purchased a Clarisonic Mia 2 - it has 2 speeds - and I use the highest speed. I use it twice, even though with only 1 application my pores look much better. Not only cleaner but somewhat less visible. If I use the clarisonic in the am, I use it 2x and then if I use it at night, I do it twice again. The first time is to clean and the second time to remove anything that the first time may have missed - I hope that makes sense.

My skin is smoother, cleaner and all the lotions and creams I apply later seem to be really absorbed by my skin rather than looking like it is sitting on top of my skin.

i changed the head brush of my clarisonic recently... you are supposed to change it every 3 months.
clarisonic still helps me with my large pores, but having a facial helps too. i haven't used my queen helene mint julep masque in months, but that's because i don't really like waiting for it to dry. i am going to start using it again so i won't have to do facials monthly.

lol i haven't used the QH mint julep masque yet, but my pores are definitely looking much better than when I created this thread. clarisonic helps A LOT, especially if you use it twice a day for 2 minutes each time rather than the one minute.

i take collagen type 2 by neocell and it helped my lashes grow and also helped to shrink my pores a bit. but i would say what helps a lot besides MIA 2 is doing cosmetic acupuncture. it makes your body produce more collagen.

When I added clay masks and facials to my skin care regimen I saw a lot of progress.

wow i forgot about this thread! so happy i created it, because i read my last posts and this is what i have to say as an update:

clarisonic mia2: it helps cleanse my skin 10x better than anything i have used, but it does not unclog pores or makes them less visible for more than an hour or so

queen helene mint julep masque: i never used for a full month, but for the period i used daily, i noticed the appearance of my pores improved.

facials: the only thing that makes a huge difference, but needs to be done every month. i have yet to have a facial that fixes my large pore problem for a full month - more like two weeks tops



i started yesterday night with Caolin Pore Tightening Memory Sleeping Mask. It is a mask that you apply a thin layer on your face after cleansing, and let it stay overnight. This morning when I woke up, my nose was glowing. I think I put too much because 2 hours after applying it to my skin, my face still felt a bit sticky.


I read my 2015 post about the zinc mask being good to tighten pores.
What I plan to do this month about those large pores:

queen helene mint julep mask daily on t-zone -starting today
zinc mask twice a week
caolin mask 6 nights a week -started yesterday

I read on that Japanese Skincare Revolution book that you should let your skin breathe one day of the week and apply nothing except sunscreen before going out.

I will update next month, if BHM is still onShocked

i am so bad with routines, i already stopped what i was doing.

but i did use the caolin mask 6 nights in a week and did not see a huge difference...

i am going to restart my routine, but instead of caolin 6x a week, i will do 3x and zinc mask 2x
queen heleen i will do 6x a week, and let my skin rest one day of the week
