Didn't work. Tough to get on and they do absolutely nothing! Waste of money. Biore pore strips are MUCH better.

These didn't do anything! I was hoping for a cheaper version of the biore strips. I would splurge on the biore because these don't work!

Hate it. I used this because I ran out of Biore and I followed the directions and when I peeled it off, all of teh residue and oil and things just stayed on my face! It did literally nothing!

These pretty much suck. They are difficult to apply - you have to look closely to determine the correct side and then wet them, unlike Biore's easy peel-and-stick method. It was impossible to get the bubbles out and make them adhere properly, so they did nothing.

I really don't know what to say about this product, because it removes my blackheads, but it is a hassle to freakin' use!
It's super sticky, it's impossible to remove any air bubbles, it slips around my nose making it difficult to postion it on my nose. It does a nice job of removing my blackheads on my nose, but I just don't like this product, I prefer Biore strips over Ponds any day.

These were awful. They unclogged my pores, but only if I managed to get it on my nose without air bubbles, which is nearly impossible.

I have used both Ponds and Biore, and Biore wins hands down. The Ponds strips removed blackheads, but they are much stickier and difficult to use. Putting them on is a real trick...the Ponds strips always stuck to my fingers (sometimes enough to nearly pull the whole strip off my nose!) whereas the Biore strips have a soft, cloth-like back that does not stick to my fingers and makes for easy application. The Ponds strips did remove some of my blackheads, so that saved them from only one lippy. Get Biore instead!

Like crazyfrog, I'm stunned that these are still around. I'm a HUGE fan of Biore, but these strips suck big time. They don't remove even tiny clogs, not a single one, and there is no way they could pull out a genuine blackhead. Total crap.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Fair, Neutral Hair: Blond, Curly, Medium Eyes: Blue
I tried these years ago and I can't believe they're still around. As I recall, they adhered to my face like cement, left a gross residue behind and did not remove a single blackhead. I gave up on pore strips altogether after that experience and just stick with masks now.

Worst product I've ever used to remove blackheads--it's very unclear which side you're meant to wet and when you do put them on, no gunk comes off! Yuck.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
These were horrible for me. They are a mess and a pain to put on, and they didn't even get any "gunk" out. I don't have a ton of blackheads on my nose, but these did nothing. The biore ones aren't a miracle worker, but are much better than this.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
It's a lil' tricky putting the wet strip on, but it sure does work for me. It pulled out whiteheads and blackheads, and I was amazed, because I didn't know that such a strip could do that. Then I clean my nose, and I'm good to go. It makes my pores smaller.
Some people say more blackheads showed up or their pores gotten bigger, but it didn't do that for me. Maybe it depends on what other beauty products you use. Things do eventually build up and get clogged. I also use clay and mint julep mask on a daily basis that helps with my pores.

I found these useless. They promised to remove blackheads but didn't do anything. My nose looked the same afterwards as it did before! Also they were very messy and fiddley and had a very off-putting fragrance.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Biore is much better. These leave a residue behind, and they don't pull near as much gunk out of my pores than the Biore strips.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Curly, Coarse Eyes: Blue
My nose certainly isn't "blackhead city", but I do get the occasional blackhead and visible pores. I aquired a box of these as a free sample from a magazine, and they worked just as well as the amount of money I payed for them - nothing. The product was sticky and uncomfortable to use, there was no difference in the skin on my nose and I honestly cannot visualize the purpose of this product. It's not that it does a bad job, it does NO job.

These are not as nice as the Biore strips, but they're pretty decent. My biggest gripe with these strips is that they are a lot measier than the Biore strips. They take a while longer to dry up and when you peel them off, there is much more gunk left on the skin than with Biore. For me this isn't a big deal because I have to rinse my face afterwards, no matter which strip I use. On the positive side, they do their job and don't leave me as itchy as the Biore strips do. If I had a choice between Ponds and Biore at the same price, I would choose Biore. As of now though, I will probably purchase whichever one I can get cheapest next time I need strips.

Wow, I must be one of the few people that actually like this product.
I will admit that it takes a long time to dry and it does stick to the skin quite a bit when it dries, but the strips do a really good job of cleaning out all the gross gunk from my nose.
I use the strips about once a month when I notice that my nose is not smooth, but all bumpy and full of dead cells and other nasty stuff. After I use a strip, my pores are clean, appear smaller, and make my nose smooth.
P.S. I have tried scrubbing the heck out of my nose, but it doesn't work as well as these strips.

These........do........nothing! Seriously, they don't work. I can't believe they haven't been discontinued. I suppose it is because people keep buying them that haven't tried them before. Save your money!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I have used the Biore strips, and even though I don't really love them, at least they work and aren't a gunky mess. This stuff is sooo sticky and I could not get the air bubbles out for the life of me. I never had that problem with Biore. Plus with Biore I could always see blackheads on there...with these the strip is just clear...leaving all the gooey sticky stuff on my nose. If you must use pore strips, def. use Biore.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
ugh, i hated these. left a sticky residue on my nose that was hard to get off, and then my nose broke out and the blackheads came right back. and i didn't see anything on the strip. really disapointing. i'm glad i got this as a sample and did not buy a whole box.
