Hello! ~♥ Today I will review the Meishoku Porerina Cleansing Gel for you, which is a nose cleansing gel. This is probably a product most of you have not heard of before, as Meishoku isn't exactly one oft he most famous Japanese brands in the west. It caught my attention because of its cute packing, which is a 30g tube with baby pink and baby blue stripes on it. The tube contains the kind of weird slogan "When the pores are clean, the mind dances. Porerina will make you happy." I can already tell you that it did not make me happy at all.
The Meishoku Porerina Cleansing Gel is a pore nose cleaning product consisting of a thermal gel combined with orange oil. It claims to remove blackheads and dirt of skin completely and close pores tightly. It's a semi-transparent gel with a slight yellowish hue to it and a citrus-like scent.
Meishoku claims that this gel turns hot once in contact with water. Then the heat is supposed to open your skin's pores and sweep them of dirt instantly. You don't need to squeeze out any blackheads or whiteheads from your nose. After washing your face, you apply a proper amount of the product to cover your nose and massage it for 30 seconds and then rinse it off with water. You are supposed to repeat the step 1-2 times each week.
However, I think "hot" is a huge overstatement. The gel turns mildly warm at best and, no matter how much I wished for it to be otherwise, I have to admit that I could not see any effect at all after using this product. There was no reduction in bleakheads right after using it, my pores did not appear any smaller. I tried to check the gel on my nose for any signs of removed blackheads, but nope, nothing either. Even after using this product constantly for several weeks, there was no visible improvement.
What's there left to say? This product simply doesn't work for me. Not at all. I don't seem to have much luck with nose cleanings products, but after checking out the few reviews of this product that I could find online, I noticed that I am not the only one. Every single blogger who tried this out shared my opinion on this, so don't waste your money on this product.
No effect at all
