    ^that's a good thing to remember Nov... I do that very thing & it's hard for me to stop myself. Rrrr

    what ive been doing lately is just scrubbing and using hydrogen peroxide and all types of shit on my damn t-zone and then putting lotion and makeup on over that when I need to and managing to keep my pores clean but they are big and someday i want to do the fraxel lazer thing, its just a neverending job really. for now anyways. and i know its beyond important but i haven't been in the financial situation to start up with facials every month; they're pretty expensive in l.a. and its hard for me to part with my money, but i'll reconsider when i get this one credit card paid off soon enough.
    I have a good tip.. (I don't know why I haven't told you about this) I was once sent a sample jar of caracol snail gel (I thought I had it bookmarked but I can't find it - I will get the jar tmrw & type the exact name here) the only place I've been able to find it is Ebay & I can't Ebay at work. This stuff worked so great for my pores, only took a little bit of gel & closed them tight for days (I didn't even have to use it every day). I have to order more but I forget by the time I get home.

    Another thing I do (night & morning), before I put on my face lotion, is use witch hazel & it closes/conceals my pores very well. (nothing has ever worked like the snail gel)

    eta: the caracol snail gel has to be gel. I've tried the cream & it doesn't work as well.. really I didn't think it did anything at all. bbtwn (lol) Be back tmrw w/name.

    I was given a couple of pumps of the Snashbox primer in a sample pot & it lasted me 6 months or so...


    I'm looking forward to knowing the name of that magic gel , Mischief!

    Really?!? I'm on a never ending quest for pore reducers until I can get laser like Alice.

    Here's some at Amazon:

    ^you are the best! I didn't think of Amazon. I should have asked you guys for an alternative to Ebay. I just ordered! (from work) woooooooot

    I am almost positive this is the stuff:
    Amazon.com: Gel De Caracol - Snail Gel 4 Oz: Beauty

    I will confirm tonight or bring the jar tmrw and make sure but I'm thinking that is it. I just ordered it only $4.95 (man they getcha on the shipping fee) I also ordered one called Elastin w/snail gel in it (same company) & the total order was $18.76.. we'll see. I'm very excited.

    Yeah it is real snail gunk I thought oh no way & yeah right when I first opened the sample (sample sent when I ordered vit. or diet pills) - it was a full jar so it wasn't really a sample but I didn't order it & I was so sad b/c one day I went to use the last little bit & it had dried up.

    Here's a gross story... when I saw it dried up, I was so upset, so I added water to it & when I went to use it, the next day, the dried clumps were huge & really great looking but they wouldn't spread/just balled around on my face -lmao! They plumped up from the water..lol. Really grossed me out.. but I wasn't afraid to try and rub that shit on my face (that's how well it worked, I thought if I can just get a little goo to soak in while I'm rolling this around, I'm golden). oh what a snail can do, right!

    Hi guys & dolls The jar I have is (I wish I could figure out how to get pics from my phone to here - I'd show you pics of the jar and the "plumping"..lol)

    K, it's Caracol Ultra by EMG & across the side it says Extracto de Baba de Caracol. It's the same thing that Bellini steered us to except that was cream &, imo, the gel is best (this link: Amazon.com: Gel De Caracol - Snail Gel 4 Oz: Beauty) Thanks again Bel, for bringing us back together -lol.

    My jar is clear glass w/white & yellow/gold label wrapped around & a grey lid.

    So you think the gel is better? I haven't ordered it yet, so I'll order the gel. Thanks for pointing that out.

    After a couple weeks, I'll report back with results. Snail gel! Who'd have thunk it? LOL.

    Jumped on real quick b/c I have to stop @ walmart tmrw morning & couldn't remember Lanacane. Bellini, did u go ahead & order snail gel? This is definitely the stuff. I love it (thanks again for the amazon suggestion!!) I'm so curious if u like it. I didn't care for the other stuff I ordered (collagen elastin)... didn't really see a difference & it seemed a tad bit drying.

    The lanacane is part of my normal face routine now. Practically essential.
