Etude House Blackhead Gassoul Clay Sleeping Paste: Review

Hi guys! I simply cannot believe that it's already August, my birth month! Time really flies quickly. In a couple of days, I will turn 25 and honestly, if you tell my 16-year-old self that I would be turning 25 without me noticing, I probably wouldn't believe you. But here I am, clueless as to how I got through all those years. Everything's a blur and no matter how I try to stop myself from aging, I am continuously doing so. Nevertheless, it's proof that I'm still alive and I can only be thankful for that.

So enough about me. Today, I'm going to be talking about a product that I've tried about 2 years ago but never got to review. I'm not sure if you're aware but I'm trying to clean up my hard drive with all these photos of products to review that have accumulated over the past two years. I know I can just delete them to make my life easier but I feel that that move is not a smart move. So yes, instead of deleting them, I'm trying to catch up by trying to blog about all those products as much as I can.

Today's product feature would be from the famous Korean brand, Etude House. The product is called the Blackhead Gassoul Clay Sleeping Paste. It's basically a clay sleeping pack. It's a treatment product that helps with blackheads. As the name suggests, it is a clay product that you leave on your skin while you sleep.

Box information says it's a "sleeping pack to clean sebum to take care of blackheads". To use, you apply the product on your forehead, nose and neck area and wash off with warm water. It is recommended to be used 1-2 times in a week and has a total shelf life of 12 months after opening.

The product is a thick paste (clay) in white. You definitely cannot pull this off in the morning when you go out unless you're aiming to look like a geisha of some sort.

I know this photo emphasizes my large pores. (Sigh, the things I do for my readers.) Haha. But that's okay. At least you have an idea of how it looks like.

Sadly, I don't really think it can solely take care of blackhead situations just because when I washed this off, I can still see my blackheads. On the other hand, it does tighten my skin and I feel like it reduces oiliness overall.

This is priced at PHP528 and I got it in an Etude House boutique in SM Sta. Rosa. I'm not sure if it is still available in stores but it is still pictured in the website. For more details, you can ask Etude House Philippines by yourself by visiting their facebook page or twitter.

This is not a sponsored post. I bought this with my own money.

with love, Anna Luisa
