I tried that generic form of Proactive too...it didn't work for me either....I think it just dried out my skin whichmade it worse. I quit before i could see if anything good would come of it.

I get pimples still at 35. Pimples and wrinkles should not be allowed to coexist. That's just wrong!

And my aunt still gets pimples at 51--not as many as she would without her Proactiv, of course. Bad skin must run in my family and I happend to inherit it.

Ok, here's a weird confession. I read on the Internet that you can put non-toxic liquid glue on your blackheads, let it dry, and pull it off like a Biore pore strip. I actually tried it and it works. Smelled kind of gluey though since it was on my nose. (I did this after my husband went to bed, or I would probably hear about it for years.)

It was either Elmer's or Aleene's Original Tacky Glue. Those are the only two I had on hand. Both are non-toxic. It peeled off in one satisfying strip too!

That really is kinda satisfying when things peel off on one try!

There was actually a thread on here about using some elmers glue as homemade pore strips, but it didn't work for me. I felt really silly smearing glue on my nose, and although peeling it off was satisfying as sunburns are fun to peel, nothing came out on it. *Shrug* Maybe my blackheads are just stubborn and refuse to come out.

Were your blackheads doing that delightful thing where they stick out a little, so it's almost like your nose is 'fuzzy'? I have a sneaking suspicion the sticky-outy ones are the type those pore strips are meant to take out.

But I'm totally trying the PVA glue thing.

Yep, the clogged pore forrest, I know it well--unfortunately. My boyfriend (now husband) complimented me once on my "freckles". I almost died... An upside to having this oily skin is my mom who is 57 looks like she's in her late 40s.

Down to business ... I do recommend steaming first to open up your pores. I think that helps prime those suckers for removal. Remember to wait for the glue to dry completely before removing. Then, lift an edge and pull slowly. Voila!

a tiny dab of toothpaste (not the gel kind) left on overnight should help to dry it out, just remember to wash it off in the morning...

I was just about to say toothpaste. This one seems to work for me, but I feel bad for my husband, when he has to sleep next to a wife with  a big dab toothpaste on her nose.
