Wishtrend: [WISH,TRY,LOVE] Ultimate blackhead clearing & preventing solution ✿REVIEW✿

Hello lovelies and welcome to Dripdrip!
Even though it is said that oily skin's a blessing in disguise since the oils help prevent aging: "It wards off wrinkles better than dry skin because the oils keep skin moister and smoother."  It also means that you'll have to live with the never-ending breakouts and... blackheads. Oh, and let's not get started on pores! Today I'll be reviewing the Ultimate Black Head Clearing & Preventing Solution from Wishtrend. A set I discovered while going through some Youtube reviews on ways to remove these nuisances. I placed the order on February 07, 2017 and it took a little bit over a month to arrive.
I've been using all of these products for four months now and the only thing I've run out off has been the cotton pads.

My favorite item on this set has been the Killing Star Cleanser. It's the perfect makeup remover, at least for someone like me that usually goes through ten makeup removing wipes before washing the face! It even removes the most stubborn mascara without leaving that horrible black residue under the eyes like some 'cleansers' do. Which means, you won't run out of this quickly since double washing won't be necessary! Such a nightmare. Actually, this is one of their claims; No double washing needed.  A little inspection made me realize this product contains: sunflower seed, sweet almond, coconut, and olive. No wonder it removes makeup like a dream! 

I have a love-hate relationship with this product. The Black Paint Rubar's actually perfect for those days I feel like a total butterball. Since it does a perfect job at removing every trace of oil on your face. However, it stings badly if it gets on your eyes. Which is hard NOT to do, I mean, you are washing your face after all. Like the Kill Star Cleanser, you can use this every day. I didn't see immediate visible results concerning my blackheads. At first, it only made my face feel really clean. Decided to make a few extractions on stubborn ones with a black head removing tools on myself and applied this product on those spots afterward. I saw then a huge difference. Maybe it's because some blackheads are sealed deep in the skin and maybe a little squish does the trick in making this product work. I no longer have really dark blackheads so that's a huge plus! I would recommend this, but more for the long terms results rather than a quick fix.
Anyone who spends enough time in the Korean beauty community has heard the endless raves on Klairs: Supple Preparation Facial Toner. It is the best toner currently out in the market! This product won the 1st place in '2016 Glow pick Consumer Award' and has won Wishtrend's top product award on 2015 and 2015. HOWEVER, Does it work!?
First, let me set something clear, “A toner's function is to complete the cleansing of your skin—removing the dust, pollution, and impurities that can still be lingering after washing with a cleanser, as cleansers usually contain ingredients such as oil, which can leave a film on your face.” With this said, it should also help minimize pores and balance the skin's PH from all the previous products used! You can apply this with the Klairs Toner Mate 2-in-1 Cotton Pads which are really effective in keeping in the product. The product itself does a great job at reducing redness from incoming pimples, rehydrating, minimizing pimples and even firming my skin. I did notice that it feels a 'thicker' in comparison to other toners. Usually, toners feel rather dry. Almost like rubbing alcohol without the damage. A liquid moisturizer even? 
My life changing holy grail combo has been using Agua Maravilla/Witch Hazel first and then applying this toner. The results have been amazing! It wasn't until I started doing this that I understood what all the rave was about. Oh, and for the price, it's a steal. Four months of daily use and I'm still half way on the bottle. 
Now, the Pore Corset Serum is a VERY misleading product. While it claims to shrink pores, control sebum and minimize textured skin, which it does, the effects aren't lasting at all! I found this to be unfair because all of their advertisements for this product is filled with hashtags like: #NoMorePore #PoreShrinker #PoreMinimizer #CorsetSerum and statements like, "This pore tightening serum is unlike any other serum. In Clinical studies, pores shrunk 34% in size after using the Pore Corset Serum!" However, when you take a closer look you can see in their description that the effects will only last for about 20 minutes. Talk about avoiding the real facts on this serum! The actual price for this is $32 USD but Wishtrend always has promotions going on so you might be able to get this cheaper. Would I recommend this? No. For the only soul reason that I wanted this to help me shrink my pores and while it does? It's not the lasting result I sought. Let's be real, you're better off fixing the problem from the root rather than masking it for a long period of time. It's a great primer though!

I loved this so much, kinda wish it brought more sheets! This was a nose clear pack that came with the order. Sadly it's no longer sold. This was basically a quick fix that worked really well for removing peach fuzz and those stubborn blackheads. This is basically an improved version of the Bioré nose strips since this actually a three step thing. First you moist the area, then you remove the blackheads and you finally seal the area.

I hope this was a helpful review and a quick look into my current skincare regimen, only a few steps missing (like moisturizer, etc.)! I know how hard it is to find good skincare nowadays since most products are being falsely advertised and/or being sponsored by people who aren't 100% honest. I strive to be as honest as I can with my personal experiences when reviewing products. As always, thank you for the support, It means the world! Also, don't be shy and feel free to drop by the comments.
