Now personally speaking, for me, there are many red flags and warning signs when it comes to VigRX right off the bat. But of course, there are exceptions, and there are times when I am wrong. So I am willing to consider whether VigRX works or not. As far as the warning signs go, I find that those products selling through multiple big third party retailers tend to rely on that rather than creating a good formula. They tend to be overpriced so everybody can make a profit, and otherwise.
Likewise the fact that they have a “doctor’s endorsement” should be a good thing. But it means that ultimately speaking, they are paying big bucks for that “endorsement” and passing the charges onto you. The doctors don’t care if it actually works, and ultimately they know that it doesn’t work. But they are getting paid for their endorsement. But you have to ask, is VigRX just one of those lucky exceptions that is worth what you are paying?
Interestingly enough, they contradict themselves and they really go against everything that would actually work. For one thing, they use both damiana as well as tribulus terrestis. Why does this matter? Because damiana is a natural sexual enhancer for women, whereas obviously a testosterone booster is only going to be appropriate for men, and this is obviously marketed toward men.
This in mind, they have some good ingredients like epimedium. But they only have extremely small amounts that do not even begin to account for the amounts that would be needed for successful benefits and results. They have other ingredients that could be good for male health in general such as saw palmetto. But again, they don’t actually bother using the right amounts. So it negates everything.
With all of this in mind, VigRX male enhancement pills do not actually work. They do not actually produce any given results. But there is a product called Orexis that does. Orexis has all the right ingredients for ultimate male enhancement results, and it has everything else in terms of amounts and everything else. So it’s definitely something I would recommend.

If you are like me and you shudder at the thought of the numerous chemicals in different skincare products touching our skins and being absorbed in (aaaaaaaaaah!!!), here are a few chemical-free natural ways to keep those nasty and oh-so-noticeable blackheads well away from our faces! Just something I learnt while surfing the net, it is both effective, can be done at home, and completely safe for any skin-type.
Effective but not recommended daily;
Ingredients; black pepper (ow!), curd – Method: make a paste of black pepper and curd (this may not smell too attractive so I suggest you do it in the seclusion of your room!). Apply on affected area. Let it dry (but not too much. This may cause wrinkles!). Wash off with cold water.
Ingredients; limejuice (make sure you don’t have cuts on your face!), drumstick leaves – Method: Same as above
Recommended for regular use;
Ingredients; fenugreek leaves (photo below) -
Method; Grind and mix with water to make it into a paste. Then follow the same steps as above..
To some, these steps may seem very annoying and much too complicated (a whole two steps to the method!!!hahaha) but alas! The road to absolute beauty is long and hard.

Many are familiar with the idea of blackheads (having suffered from them I guess???) but do they also know what whiteheads are? Because I know that not everyone ho reads this will have their PhD in chemistry, here’s a simple comparison. Blackheads are blockages or ‘clogs’ that has occurred on a wider than normal pore, which means that the chemical called ‘melanin’ in the blockage has gone through oxidation due to its exposure in air through the wide pore. Hence their rather nauseating black coloring. Whiteheads on the other hand are blockages that have occurred under a microscopic pore, which means that although the same substances are causing the blockage, they have has little exposure to air, little oxidation and therefore doesn’t go through a color change. Hence it remains white.
Now another thing to consider when comparing these two is how to rid of each of these. There are many methods that apply and can be effective for both such as once-a-day cleansing or damp cloth massages but for those who want specific cures here is the most effective cure for each. Blackheads can best be removed by Extraction applied more effectively due to the wider than normal pore. These include blackhead removal strips or laser therapy. Whiteheads on the other hand, due to the small opening chemical treatment is best. Tretinoin and Benzoyl Peroxide products are most recommended.
Happy striving-for-perfect-skin everyone!
The 12 year old cheerleader, the 25 year old probing her skin before a girl’s night out, the working mom aged 43… Now they may say acne is a puberty thing that goes away in time, but what can we do about blackheads??? You will be surprised to know the number of people who actually do not know what blackheads are! Blackheads are a blockage caused by natural oils that your pores produce, and in no-time, acne causing bacteria takes over and blocks the pore completely resulting in either blackheads, or whiteheads. Although there are many, many products that will enable us to rid them chemically, here are some basic must-dos for smooth flawless skin;
Firstly, massage your face with a warm, damp cloth every evening before cleansing. This loosens and dissolves dirt and other harmful particles.
Secondly, although oil-based makeup has absolutely effective coverage, you must avoid using them for they will most deifinitely clog up your pores.
Finally, stop scratching or scrubbing you face! The damage done to your skin will cause your skin to try and repair that damage by producing natural oils.
Doesn’t cost, doesn’t involve TOO much hard work : ) why not start following these steps now? Good Luck~
