(just shake it up before you use it to mix up the oil!) it works great and makes your skin feel soooo much cleaner.
for anyone considering this as a toner, if you have dry skin make sure you have a good moisturizer as well. witch hazel and tea tree oil can be harsh on dry/sensitive skin.

deviant_behaviour wrote:this might sound gross as but does anyone get clogged pores between their boobs? i think its from wearing bras that push them together the skin doesn't get to breath much. is there any way to sort these out? if i try and sqeeze them the skin goes all patchy-red and its hard to explain to my boyfriend without grossing him out.

She explains that ingredients in cleansers & moisturizers cause blackheads. If Isopropyl mystrate (sp?) is one of the first few ingredients in the product your gonna get blackheads from it.
I used to go for facials at Elizabeth Grady and they kept selling me this product that had Isopropyl mystrate as the first ingredient in it. I havent been back there since. Evil marketing, eh?
Another thing that works great for blackheads is hygrogen peroxide, put it on a cotton ball and rub over them, it will bleach em. WATCH out for your eyebrows & hairline, it'll bleach them too! Don't do it everyday.
One more skin trick, exfloiate with baking soda. Use a tablespoon of it with a lil bit of water and make a paste.
This is my first post, hope it helps someone out!

and i'm not sure i'd want to bleach my blackheads... i want them gone haha.
i have issues with clogged pores on my nose, and now that i've got my nose pierced again they're accumulating where i can't scrub and it's gross-looking because they kind of stick out. little white thingies popping out. grossssssssss
