These got rid of some of my blackheads around my nose but it left the rest just at the surface of my skin as if the product was meant to be used twice at a time to get rid of those left behind. I also think these are really overpriced for what they are and I the price actually mde me hesitate to buy them in the first place. Also, I dont like how oily my nose felt after pulling the pore strip off. The MAJOR dissapointment was that for the following weeks after I quit using thr product, the areas on and surrounding my nose got several whiteheads. 3-4 weeks later, I never got another whitehead around my nose just like before I began using Biore Pore Perfect... Coincedence?

I have been using these since they were introduced into the market. I love them - they do exactly what they claim to. I used the regular ones before these came out and they gave me great results as well. I use a whole one on my nose and cut another one in half and use half on my forehead (between my brows) and the other half on my chin. I wish they would make an entire face mask out of this material. I think it would be great to remove clogged pores all over the face. My only complaint about these is they are a bit expensive and they are extremely addicting. I cannot be without them!

This has tea tree oil in it, so it tingles while it works. It only works if you steam your face for 15 minutes, then apply this. When I pulled the strip off it was very satisfying to see all those nasty blackheads attached to it. This didn't pull skin off or dry out my nose either.

Just like the original nose strips. Didn't see any difference, but I would still buy it again since they are both the same price.

Not the BEST thing ever, that title belongs to freshly picked mangoes.
I had sinuses anyway, so I took a bowl of just-boiled water, bent over it, put a towel over my head & stayed that way for a while, just breathing in/out. It's good for sinuses.
Then I got one of those strips, put it on my damp nose and did some chores.
The gunk that came out was wow! Amazing! And my nose was much clearer! You MUST follow up with toner & moisturization.
I do this regularly now.
There's this one stupid blackhead that won't go away no matter WHAT and my facialist even tried getting it, it just won't leave I hate it! So the pore strips didn't make THAT budge, but otherwise, great.

I like this product. It really helps with my blackheads. The only problem is that it only removes the top layer of the blackheads, and they tend to reappear very soon, but I think almost all types of pore strips are like this. Yes, it hurts sometimes to peel it off, but when you look at the strip after you've peeled it, you can see all of this dirt and gunk it's pulled out of your pores. Sometimes my nose feels sticky afterwards, but that's no big deal. I also think these are more expensive than they should be, but I would still buy them again.

I love these! I use them more frequently than the bow says, so I don't get the OMG results I used to get when I used them only once a week or so. They are good at getting the big black heads. I like to use these after I use the clean and clear black head eraser.

I used an entire box of regular nose strips without much change, so I thought getting the Ultras would work better. I love the smell when you first smooth the strip over your nose, it's more tingly than the regular strips. But after fifteen minutes, the results weren't much better than regular. I've had horrible blackheads on my nose for a couple years now and I've been searching for something that could really get rid of them but these really did nothing for me. They pulled a few of them along the top of my nose, mainly. I guess if you're looking for a moderate cleaning than these will work for you, but if you've got lots of blackheads, it's not helping much at all.

I was getting OK results for a while just taking a shower and using a clay mask before, but today it was either exfoliating with a washcloth or (more likely) putting a very, almost painfully hot washcloth over my nose for maybe 30 seconds before using the strip in addition to the clay mask. It still did not get everything but it worked pretty well.

i was dissapointed in this. the ultra seemed no different for me than the regular strips. these did not reach the corners of my nose well and they were not available for faces, only nose. i find that removing dead skin cells with scotch tape and then placing your face over boiling water and then gently squeezing with hands washed in cleanser works MUCH better. just a little beauty tip for ya. =]
p.s. the only good thing about the biore strips is that they sometimes contain coupons inside!

I used this after taking a hot shower. WOW. All sorts of crap came out. These worked way better than the cheaper pore strips I've tried and without leaving behind a residue.

I was a loyal fan of these until recently. I always had the experience that the "ultra" product removed more blackheads than the regular strips. I'm not sure if these have been reformulated but I used 2 of them recently only to discover dismal results for a HIGH price. These things seem to get more expensive every time I get some. I will try the regular ones next time and hope they do better.

These are a classic, but if you don't *use them correctly*, they will not work at all. If you do use them, expect consistently decent results. To make the most of these, wait to use them until after you've taken a hot bath or shower, thus opening your pores and softening the blackheads. Then, make sure that your face is still very, very wet, and smooth the pore strip over your nose, pressing down firmly and making sure that there are portions where it's not adhering. Now wait a while, longer than the box says- I sometimes leave them on up to half an hour. Next,peel the strip off slowly and carefully, and you should see decent results.

They worked pretty well for me. When I pealed it off, I saw a lot of blackheads and white heads on it. I was like ewwww
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Olive, Neutral Hair: Black, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
they dont WORK
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
They're pretty good. They worked awesome before. Not as well lately. I don't know what's up with that. I started pulling them off a lot slower... maybe everyone's skin is different and I should try taking them off faster...

If you use the product properly, it WILL work to remove the big blackheads completely, leaving a little neat clean pore-hole to look at.. hah... but I found that it doesn't really "pull out" the little tiny blackheads. But unfortunately, if you don't have some kind of serious pore treatment ready afterward, a couple days after, another blackhead just takes the place of all the ones you pulled out. And as someone else already said, Biore claims that u can cut the strips and place them on the chin/cheek areas. So far i've found that they don't pull out ANYTHING from the cheeks OR chin (even the big ones). So all-in-all, this product is really just for fun if you don't like the damaging affects of picking your skin and want an alternative. Will not repurchase.

These are kind of a classic for me. I find that they really do help to get some of the gunk out of my pores, but you have to keep up with using them. I try to use them once a week. My only real complaint is that the box suggests that you can cut them and use them on your chin, and I can't get them to stick there.

It took me ages to get these right. I was dubious at first but in time I came to swear by them. I even emailed Biore and asked what I was doing wrong: they wrote back and helped me, which was cool. I still get the odd one wrong now and then but on the whole they work. I love the ick factor of seeing what's stuck to them at the end.
For best results, wet your nose so it's dewy, not dripping, dry your hands and smooth the strip down good and firmly. You don't need to wait the length of time it says on the box: just wait until the strip's dried. Then pull it off s-l-o-w-l-y, then slow down a bit, then slow down some more. Even slower than that. I allow a long time to remove it. I don't pull so much as I hold it *just* away from my face - on the brink of pulling - and let my skin fall away from it, one little pore at a time. If you yank too fast it will hurt and leave some blackheads behind in the rush.
I've done these strips for several years to keep on top of my blackheads, and they do help. I live in London where the air is filthy and I cycle through it to get to work, so I've been fighting a losing battle for a while. I've just recently started scrubbing with Peter Thomas Roth botanical buffing beads and using his 10% hydrating gel at night, and my blackheads are pretty non-existent now.

overall quite an impressive result.
at first it did not do a thing, but then i tried a new way.
i put moisturising mask, them i steamed my chin a bit, after i put the pore strip and i held it for 20 minutes(they recommend only 10-15, it is does not worked for me).
why not five lippies? It dried out my skin, it hurts when you take it out...
but it works, so i am planning to continuo using now and then.
