How do you get rid of blackheads? Nose strips? Blackhead remover tools? Scrubs? I recommend trying Tony Moly Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm before you try any of those other removers.

Why? Well, let’s back up a little:

Blackheads are bumps that appear in our clogged hair follicles. It’s a type of acne, and they can appear anywhere – on our foreheads, noses, chins, cheeks, and other parts of our bodies.

When blackheads are on our faces, we should search for gentle ways to remove them. I’m not a huge fan of those blackhead remover tools because it’s tedious and can damage skin. Of course, what you use to remove blackheads depends on the severity.

I personally get blackheads on my nose, but it’s a very mild case. So, when I received a trio of the Tony Moly Egg Pore line, I wondered if I even qualified to review this. That’s when I turned to a friend who has large pores and blackheads on his nose.

After using the blackhead steam balm on him and myself, I can say without a doubt, this stuff works. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to I use the revenue only to buy more products to review for you.

 Tony Moly Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm

How it Works

Tony Moly Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm is a gentle citrus smelling gel-like balm with scrubs and capsules. It warms your skin to open up your pores, and Tony Moly calls it a “self-heating balm”. There’s an added heating agent and sulfur spring water that begin to warm up when you rub the balm on (you need to rub for 3-5 minutes for the entirety of its application).

There are 3 scrubs: Salt (removes whiteheads), Charcoal (removes blackheads), and Yolk (nourishing).

So, yes, there are actual egg proteins in this. The yolk includes A, B1, B2 vitamins, iron, phosphorous and animal protein. There’s also pickled egg shell powder that contains calcium, minerals, acetic acid (for sebum) and amino acids and other vitamins.

Just so you know, Tony Moly says they don’t test on animals. I don’t know many details on the eggs, they simply say the eggs are “from pastured hens from Jirisan”.  Skip this if you are opposed to using animal products on your skin.


Immediately after using, we noticed it immediately cleared clogged pores on both of us. In both in a mild and tougher case, blackheads were totally dissolved. I was honestly amazed at how well it worked. I guess those egg proteins really deliver on this one.

Always close your pores after a treatment like this. Simply use cold water and follow up with the rest of your cleansing routine.

You can of course follow up with the Tony Moly Egg Pore Tightening Pack. [Review coming soon]


Get it.

I mean, there’s not much else to say here. It works. I wish more came in the pot but it’s good for what it does and it’s only $9 on Amazon as of November 2016, so why not give it a try?
