Belif Nose Shine-Boy Blackhead Remover Oil Balm Review

Let's face it, blackheads are a real pain and most of us have to remove them regularly. I use various exfoliators, pore strips, gels and extractors... As soon as I stop using any of the products I mentioned for a couple of days, my nose doesn't look too good :) Removing blackheads on a regular basis is very important to me so I am always on the lookout for a new blackhead remover. When I got a chance to try a couple of Belif products , I was instantly drawn to the Nose-Shine Boy Oil Balm. 

Firstly, I really like the name of the product and the simple packaging. Metal tins are always hassle free. The product itself is an oil balm and it melts in contact with skin. You can see on the last photo, that it started melting as soon as I touched it. The consistency is very soft, so it is really easy to get a desirable amount onto your finger. You can use a spatula, if you want to do it in a more hygienic way, but I use a clean finger. I only get blackheads on and around my nose, so a pea sized amount of the product is perfect to massage this area.  The balm is very pleasant to use and has a delicate citrusy scent. Once I am done with massaging the nose area for 5 minutes, I move onto the rest of my face and massage it for a minute or two. I remove the remains of the balm, by wiping my face with tissue. You are meant to follow up with a cleansing foam, but I am not  a fan of them. I use a cream cleanser   and a wet muslin cloth instead. 

Does the Nose Shine-Boy Blackhead Remover Oil Balm work?

 If you expect it to magically remove every single blackhead after one use- it won't happen. If you use it for 2-4 weeks, twice a week, you will definitely see great results. After using Nose Shine-Boy once, most blackheads were removed and my nose was left smooth and clean. I have never seen it so shiny to be honest  :) haha. Deep/stubborn blackheads remained under the skin and had to be extracted manually. I know... gross, but I am reviewing a blacked remover, right? After each use, my skin looks clean and smooth and the pores on my nose are less visible. I have been using the balm for 2 weeks and I can see a big difference.

Overall, I really like the Belif Nose Shine-Boy Blackhead Remover Oil Balm. It makes the process of removing blackheads gentle, easy and hassle free. It is suitable for all skin types and made with natural ingredients. You can buy this product from
