Expensive for what this is, I don't like this product. Firstly you have to wait ages until the blackheads are of a decent size (yuck!) and then the strip takes half your nose with it - ouch! Prefer a gel formula - am never buying Biore again!
These are the best things! I don't use them often, I reserve them for those times when NOTHING seems to be working on my blackheads. These take care of a great many of them. My tips: make sure there is NO oil whatsoever on your skin before you use it, else it won't adhere properly, and apply to a sopping wet nose or add a bit of water to the outside of it after you apply it. It won't remove every single blackhead, but it removes a great deal of them (at least for me).
These do absolutely nothing for me. I've tried 'em a bunch of times because I really want them to work. But they don't, and that's the bottom line.
I finally mastered the trick of the strips. I wasnt real cranky about them before but this last time I let them dry a little longer than the box says and they worked wonders!! Cleaned my nose out VERY well. Now I love them!!
These don't work too good for me because the pores on my nose are really tiny. But, I do know that they work! My boyfriend has larger pores on his nose and when he uses them, it gets EVERYTHING out!! That's why I rate this a three. They work, just not for me.
NOT TO BE USED WITH DRY SKIN, or the type of skin that peels after some sun. The first time I used these strips they worked great, pulling gunk off left and right...and then...the horror. I left it on just a little too long, tried to pull it off, and nearly pulled off half my nose. I wound up having to wet it down again and peel it off slowly. It also leaves little residue glue pockets. I wind up having to wash my face again after using them. So it was a great noveltie the first time...not something I'd really use again though.
First one worked great! Black gunk everywhere. Next week, second one did nothing. Third one left glue all over my face. Not impressed. Now I hear these things can tear your skin. Yikes!
Does a whole lot of nada. except, it manages to rip off half my nose while leaving every single black head in place. don't do it.
I too have a love/hate relationship with these strips. Better than the ponds strips by far. Sometimes they get up a whole lotta gunk, sometimes they just pull off hairs. I find they work better when i've exfoliated, steamed, washed. I use them sometimes when I'm about done with a home facial, right before I masque. They don't usually hurt for me.
I really like these. They work really well and you can see the results right after you take them off. The down side is that if you leave them on too long they hurt getting them off.
