Yep. I have oily large pore face :[ this makes my skin much smoother and feeling great.

Other egg things- these face masks kinda do the same thing but doesn't remove blackheads at the same time.

Thanks for posting! Biore strips are expensive and this might be a great alternative.

I just tried a simple egg white face mask and I can say my face feels smoother. I'll see what it does in the future.

I have crappy skin too. I always have.

Try opening your pores and cleaning them then closing them back up. I do this twice a day. I don't really have black heads anymore. When I did they were very faint though.

Fill a sink with super hot water from the tap (Not boiling! ha) Soak a face cloth in there then drape it over your face and let the steam and heat open your pores.

Wash with a natural face wash. St ives is the best for me. I have used so many others and they leave me with really dry skin.

Once washed and you have got all the soap off run some freezing cold water and either soak the face cloth in it and put it on your face or just hold your face under the tap. This closes all the pores back up tight.


Finish with a natural toner or your moisturizer!

I am LOVING this! I've got my second one on right now, and I definitely got the hang of not tearing the tissue a lot better this time around! Really does make your skin feel AMAZING afterwards :)

I tried this today and I have to say I am very impressed. I have sensitive skin and Biore has always been too harsh but this worked a treat and left my skin feeling soothed, if anything.

To be honest, even if it hadn't worked, it was well worth the effort for the hilarity it provided the rest of my family.
What, that? It's a spade.

While doing zombie make up that involved peeling skin (elmer's glue) I found that straight up elmer's glue works awesome!

I tried the one on youtube that you mix gelatine with a little milk, pop in the microwave until it's melted and then slap it on ya nose (when its cooled!!!) and leave to dry!

Deffo works and was SO cheap, I'm not too keen about slapping egg on my face!

I'd sooner put egg on my face than gelatine any day.

A nice variation on this is to mix the egg white with some honey. Still gets rid of excess oil, but leaves your skin extra soft as well! Plus it smells nice :)

OHMYGOD I've been mentioning this to people on here for like a week and I don't think anyone noticed :lol: I tried it the other day and it made my skin feel softer than it ever has ever, I hate harsh face washes and chemicals and this just felt SOOO so nice, and its basically free <3
I don't know if that video shows it, but if you keep the yolk and put it on your face afterwards, let it dry then clean off, it makes your skin feel tight, like lifted up! Its amazing, it also acts as a moisturizer. :D

This sounds good, especially as my mum has chickens and therefore has tons of free eggs! Buuuuttt.... I don't think I'd have the time to wait around for it to dry. Do you think there would be any reason why you couldn't dry it with a hairdryer on a low heat setting? Obviously I wouldn't want to cook the egg on my face! I may give this a go but just on my T zone rather than a full face mask.

honestly i didnt wait 15 minutes, I waited just until it dried which is in like 5-10, so I don't know if that helps. Even after 5-10 minutes my skin felt awesome, but probably the longer you let it set the more benefits. As for the hairdryer, I have no clue, you definitely don't want an omellette on your face :lol:

Might have to give some of the adivce here a shot, my skin sucks right now, but I have dry/sensitive skin so I have to be carefull, these sound gentle enough.
