New Biore's Pore Pack with additional slits on the strips give a better fit to clean pores clogged with oil and dirt more effectively. It thoroughly removes blackheads on the nose instantly. When used once or twice a week regularly, pores will become less noticeable, giving you cleaner, smoother skin!
Actual Product Pic:
Texture & Scent:
This cleansing strip is has a cottony surfuce on one side, and a i dunno, waxy? surface on the other side that will turn sticky once it comes in contact with water! :D
Once dried, this strip will harden and you'll see the gunk stuck on them:
This smells abit like glue! hahaha! XD
These cleansing strips come in a box of 10! They're individually packed in their respective foil packs, which i really like! :D
It usually takes about 15 minutes for these strips to dry completely on my nose! :)
Price & Availability:
This pore pack costs RM12.90 each, and should be available at most Watsons / Guardian outlets as well as your local supermarket! :D
Although i don't recommend using this at all, i use this whenever i see them blackheads on my nose.
Here's how you use it:
Step 1: Wet your nose with water:
Step 2: Gently lift the strip off it's plastic backing
Step 3: Place the strip unto your nose with BOTH hands (i couldn't show both as i'm holding the camera with my other hand! haha!!)! :D
Step 4: Smooth the strip down with your fingers:
Wait for it to dry completely, then slowly peel it off from both upper corners inwards, and you're done! :D
This review has been sitting in my drafts for months already!! Was debating if i should post this one and thought what the heck! haha!! :P
Ok before you start lecturing me on how harmful these strips are, i wanna tell you that I KNOW!!! Hahaha!!
But then again, if you have used this before, you should know how addictive these strips are!! hahaha!! Not that i'm recommending them or what, but these give me some sort of demented pleasure when i peel them off my nose and see those gunk stuck to it!! :P :P
Ok, back to normal transmission mode now! lol! :P I'm sure most of you would have came across these strips before, and have even used them before! :D So lemme talk about actually how effective these strips are.
To tell you the brutal truth, i don't think they work very well at all!! Maybe the first time yes, but after that, not any more!! Every time i use this now, all it pulls out are those tiny hairs on my nose!! lol!!
To show you what am i talking about, here's some pics for you!
ps: be grateful!! I have to "abstain" from squeezing those blackheads out and allow them to fester for two weeks to show you guys!! Faster say thank you already! hahaha!! :D
WARNING: They're not exactly pleasant to look at!
A side by side comparison for you! The blackheads are circled for your reference.
After using, they're STILL there!! No doubt my nose looks abit "cleaner" in the after pic (the strip probably lifted whatever dust / gunk leftover there! lol!), but it definitely did not remove my blackheads! :(
This is the used strip:
UGH, i don't see anything except for some nose fuzz here and there! I'm sticking to my trustly blackhead remover loop! lol!! XD
So conclusion is, DON'T use this. It doesn't really remove your blackheads, plus it MAY injure your skin!! Use a
