The good side... stays good. As you can see, the spot on my forehead still have a funny texture... it still feels a bit "leather-ish", and reflects light pretty well. Wondering when will that goes away. Still lots of blackheads on my nose. I'm going to try those blackheads strips in a few days, as the sides of my nose is still peeling a bit after a whitehead popped, scabbed and healed.
