Hello everyone~! Having to take medication after my surgery has brought about unpleasant side effects~ One of the major side effect that i have experienced from the medication would be increased oil secretion! As you know, breakouts and blackheads will come hand in hand when skin is oily. Besides going for facial at closer interval, i have to dig into my stash for products that will help to prevent black heads and clogged pores in between facials. Inside my stash, i have found the Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel from Reveal A Secret (RAS) which will help me achieve smooth and healthy skin.

Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel is created to address oily skin woe so that it will regain back its smoothness, radiance and youthfulness. Formulated with a unique concoction, the gel is made from natural plant-based active ingredients that aim to improve one’s skin when it is used as part of the daily skincare regime. The continued usage of this product promises to get rid of all the little blackheads and deliver a beautiful and clear complexion.
Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel contains Witch Hazel Extract and this key ingredient is proven to possess countless benefits for the skin such as controlling oil secretion and impurities, help ease redness and irritation. It also contains important ingredients such as Tea Tree Oil and Lemon extract to soothe and minimise pores size. This unique blend also acts as a natural exfoliate that softens and cleanse clogged pores, gently eliminates, reduces and prevents blackheads and whiteheads.
Witch Hazel is a natural extract derived from bark, leaves and twigs of the Hamamelis virginiana plant. It helps soothe and calm down angered pores. It contains large quantity of tannins that have an astringent effect to help tighten up the pores.
tea tree oil
Tea Tree Oil is derived by distilling the leaves of the Australian Melaleuca alternifolia tree. This warm, aromatic essential oil penetrates quickly into pores and is beneficial for blackheads-prone skin. The indigenous Bundjalung people of eastern Australia use it as a traditional medicine by inhaling the oil from the crushed leaves to treat cough and cold. They also sprinkle leaves on wounds, after which a poultice is applied. In addition, tea tree leaves are soaked to make an infusion to treat sore throat or skin ailments.
Lemon extract is derived from the fruit of the lemon tree. It helps tonify oily skin by reducing oil, while the natural AHA (citric acid) helps clear complexion by safely exfoliating dead skin cells found on the surface.
To enjoy the best benefit, it is recommended to use the Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel after cleansing and toning twice daily. Because i have very oily skin, i’m applying it on my entire face after the use of toner and then followed up with my moisturizer. If you have blackheads only on your T-zone area (lucky you!), you can just apply a thin layer on affected areas. Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel has a gel-ish texture and its light formula makes it very suitable for oily skin. It doesn’t have any adverse effect on oily sensitive skin like mine (No redness / stinging sensation) during use as it does NOT contain parabens, artificial fragrance and colourant. Previously i was using a similar product from Bliv but this works the same at a fraction of the price. Black Magic Blackheads Clearing Gel doesn’t feels oily nor heavy on skin and it gets absorbed into the skin fast so that i can apply subsequent products quickly. When it came into contact with skin, skin felt refreshed and soothed~ A personal tip, you can put this in the fridge for an extra cooling sensation during application. 🙂 Because this is product has mattifying effect, it is important to apply moisturizer as such product tends to be drying to skin. With such combination, i find that my skin doesn’t oils up that much and the pores on my nose area appeared to be smaller (Since it is not so congested). It doesn’t take long to see the results and i’m definitely happy to see that it works so well in keeping my oily skin clear + healthy.
Enjoy the splendour of nature with RAS and indulge in skincare that is both natural and affordable. RAS takes you on a journey of discovery to reveal the secret gems found on earth. Apart from Black Magic blackheads clearing gel, RAS will be launching more skincare products in the second quarter of 2017.
