|Oxidized once I opened the cap|
When Stephenie from Natta Cosmo called and asked if I would like to review on this product, I was a little sceptical about it. I'll tell you why.
Besides my oil seeds issue which I kinda sort it out HERE, I have huge issues with my blackheads. I have it since I was 13 years old. Can you imagine? Hah. My history goes back when I innocently saw the Biore Pore Pack advertisement on tv and I followed exactly how they said I should. Exactly. And that was the problem. THEY DIDN'T SAY I HAD TO APPLY PORE REFINING TONER AFTER THAT!!! And so, I was a little disappointed when my blackheads grew darker, larger and my nose was getting dirtier. Yuck.
My confidence was low throughout high school years as I didn't really cared about those blackheads plus white heads. The worst thing I remembered a schoolmate actually said,
"You look like you grow moustache on your nose."
Yeap. I'll remember him til he dies. Until now, that I'm already a working adult, meeting people with my face (can't leave my nose at home, can I?) then I realize that it's time for me to solve this major problem. Like, major problem. So below are the pictures before I used this product from Natta Cosme.
[BEFORE] O.S.T Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum
Scary isn't it? I don't really like to explain much in words so pictures will do the explanation. I can't lie, I still use the old school method - Blackhead Extractor Tool. I don't know, maybe I feel good torturing my nose since my nose had been torturing me all these years. LOL. Is that even make sense. WTM. Then, I used Biore Pore Pack White and Blackheads Remover too. Yes, I still believe in this product though I condemn the misunderstanding years ago. Along with my Chin Blackhead Remover too. Great combo.

And then O.S.T Serum started. I tried applying both ways:-
1. Only t-zone area,
2. Whole face.
I prefer the first way because my t zone areas are more oily than the rest of my face whereas applying it on my whole face kinda dries up my cheeks a little bit. So if you have combination skin, I would advice you to do the same.
[AFTER] O.S.T Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum
Much cleaner? Heh. I can't say it was 100% due to the O.S.T Serum alone but it did help and I'm happy with the results. And for sure I didn't expect my nose to be perfectly clean but at least my pores shinked slightly. It might take some time because of the natural ingredients and I'm fine with it. Too much chemicals will damage my skin in time. Besides, these tiny monsters have been with me for more than 10 years. So why the rush?
Have you tried this? What's your verdict?
