Sponsored Review
As I have previously mentioned, Naruko sent me some products for me to review. I've been using them quite regularly (alternating between other products to review) so here's the first review for one of the 3 products!

One of the products they sent me was the Niaouli & Tea Tree T-zone Blackhead Remover (newly named Tea Tree Oil Out T-zone Blackhead Remover).

I do get occasional breakouts and black/white heads and clogged pores are some of the biggest woes anyone can have around their T-zone. (If you don't already know, your T zone is the area which consists of your forehead, nose, and your chin)


The instructions:

They are in Chinese, and I'll translate it loosely.
Purpose: Removes blemishes.. (and the rest is too chim for me T_T)..and keeps your T zone area smooth and pore-free.
Usage: After cleansing, use a clean towel to remove the excess moisture from your skin. On your T zone, where the pores are clogged and enlarged, apply a thin layer of the powdered cream and wait 3~5minutes for it to dry. When it's about to dry, lightly use your clean fingers to rub off the powder. After that, rinse with water and follow up with your skincare.

Even though I'm not a big fan of green, i really like how the packaging gives it a really professional and clinical look.


I know my nose looks very bumpy and all, but these are just the pores. IRL, when i touch my nose i can't even feel the bumps. However, you can definitely see some blackheads in some of the bumps ):.

I usually dispense about this amount for my nose and some areas on my forehead with problems and blemishes.

It is actually quite a dry and powdery paste. I was really shocked when i first applied it onto my skin! I thought it feel like a scrub, with little bits to exfoliate. This was however, not the case!

Apply all over your nose (spread it into a thin layer) and then wait for it to dry. After that, gently rub off with your finger tips.

See how there are little flakes forming and cleansing my pores?? Yay clean pores! Clean pores = healthy pores = healthy skin!


First and foremost, my skin felt really cool and fresh after washing it off. My skin felt really smooth and my pores, really clean. The bumps did get smaller, but I still couldn't feel them before using it. However, this product really cleaned my pores and got rid of the blackheads!

Ease of use: 4/5
This product was relatively easy to use. However, i will recommend you use this over the skin as the flakes tends to fall off. Also, since the product is quite thick, it tends to stick to the cover. (I have an OCD for clean caps and etc, so this is a down side for me ): )

Scent: 5/5
There was a really fresh scent from this product (i think due to the many types of plant extracts) and i really digged it.

Effectiveness: 4/5
As much as i would love for it to, it didn't really remove my whiteheads. However, it did a really good job of tightening my pores and cleansing the blackheads.

Leaves my skin cool, fresh and clean? Definitely Yes.
I really loved the cooling feeling that it gave me while i had the product on and after rinsing. Probably thanks to the peppermint! It was a minty fresh feeling, that was not too intense. Just the right amount of pepperminty-freshness! 5/5

Price/Affordability: 5/5
I tried to find it on NarukoSG's website and I couldn't find it. Therefore, I can't remember the price. However, i vaguely remember it to be less than $20. This product goes for $15, but it is difinitely worth the money because a little goes a long way!

Overall: 4.5/5
Definitely will repurchase. Also, this product gives me good enough oil control and i really enjoyed using this product.
