I've been rather annoyed lately with the size of the pores on my cheeks.  They're bigger than I want, and it just seems that its the one thing that I can't stand.  I decided to make up a mask in hopes that something magic would happen...  I used:

PINK KAOLIN CLAY: Gentle enough for sensitive or dry skin.  It works to exfoliate without removing all the oils your skin requires.

TEA TREE OIL: Germicide.  It gets rid of bacteria that lingers on the skin.

CYCLOMETHICONE: Gives skin a silky soft feeling.

GOLDEN JOJOBA: Aids in the clearing of Acne.

DEAD SEA SALT: Stimulates the skin and cleanses the pores while improving texture.

I noticed my pores were less visible and my skin felt lifted.  When I applied the mask it had a tingling sensation, but it wasn't anything unpleasant.  Looks like my little concoction worked!  I left it on for 10 minutes, rinsed, and then followed up with a moisturizer.  I used this for a week, every other day, and my skin cleared up better than its ever been!  Its been a couple weeks since I've used it and I've noticed that my face isn't quite as smooth as it was when I was using this.  I guess that means I'm going to have to dig it out of my bag and give it another whirl. 

Whats your guy's take on homemade products?  Would you rather buy something handmade or would you rather go to the store and just by something off the shelf?

I have horrible visible pores on my nose :(
I prefer natural products. They seem more luxurious for some reason plus they're better for the skin if you choose the right ingredients x
