You gotta try it!

Skin Context: Combination/Dehydrated Oiliness, blackheads over t-zone and cheeks.
A first I wasn't sure about this stick, I've bought loads of products claiming to have similar effects and each time I've been disappointed. Not this time! If you're expecting a magic wand to make all blackheads disappear with one use, that's certainly not what happened for me. However, I stuck with it, using it every other time I shower (I think the steam helps) and after three uses my skin is pretty much blackhead free. The texture is noticeably better and without the clogs I think my pores are looking smaller, too. I will say for disclosure that the first time I used it I did experience some dry skin around my nose, but I'm 80% certain that was just a touch of sunburn, as it hasn't happened since.
After cleansing, you massage it gently over the areas you want to treat (don't scrub!), then rinse off. There's no residue, just clean, smooth skin. It doesn't have a particularly strong scent, it's not painful or stingy, and the stick is very compact and easy to use.
I don't know how long the stick will last, although from what I can tell I haven't used much at all - but I still bought a second stick already, just so I don't go without.
