This worked amazingly well the second time. The first time I applied it with a spoon as directed, and it turned out WAY to thick and there was a whole lot leftover. The second time I only used 1/2 tsp gelatin and 1 tsp milk and applied it with my fingers once it cooled a bit. Not only was I able to see the blackheads but it worked really well getting all the dead skin off without being overly abrasive.
I tried this twice - it would not peel off. I had to just wash it off. Guess I'll stick with the pore strips. It did make my face soft, though.
