This worked really well for me for spots treatments. Wouldn't advise it for a mask though cuz it does take awhile to dry. Totally Juicy has peel-off masks that work well and dry quicker if that's what you're looking for.

Gave this a try as it was on special and cheaper than the regular nose strips ive used in the past. It definatly needs longer to dry than suggested on the tube but thats not really an issue for me. When you peel it off you cant actually see the dirt and blackheads like on the biore nose strips and im not sure if it initially removes much. But after showering later that night i noticed my nose definatly looked better..strange, but i think maybe it opened up my pores and then they just needed cleansing! Im not sure if ill buy it again but i think it will last quite a while any way

While most of these reviews seem negative, I just wanted to chime in that I absolutely love this product! In addition to smelling delicious it makes my skin feel smoother every time I use it. Instead of following it's directions.. I use it after washing my face well with a gentle cleanser and apply it as an entire mask as opposed to just "trouble spots". It does take a while to dry, but it's definitely worth it to wait. I've found that even after the top feels dry to the touch, you should wait another 10 minutes or more for it to really dry underneath and get the full effect. My skin is fairly sensitive and has had reactions to products before.. but I feel no burning or pain when I use this.. only a cooling minty feeling while it dries. Be prepared to wait for this product to dry, it's really the only downside I see because it takes me about 30 minutes to use this mask. Another tip is to be focused in applying it... with the right touch you can a relatively even surface, apply it just thick enough it won't drip and you're set!

Found this at Big Lots for $2, and thought I'd pick it up for my husband, who has ridiculous blackheads all over his nose, no matter what he does to exfoliate. He's used it twice thus far, and the results are just amazing. His nose has actually lightened several shades (closer to matching the surrounding face now) and the pores are definitely emptying out. I finally tried this myself (but I've been blessed with clear skin) and whoa nelly! it burns. Since the damn instructions don't tell you how much to use/layer on, I went with the "thick must suck pores out better" idea. Not so, the burning was almost unbearable, so I had to go and thin my layer out, which relieved the stinging pain considerably. It takes longer than ten minutes to dry, so be prepared to watch a tv show with this goop on. Peeling it off doesn't hurt nearly as much as the real pore strips, but there usually are some small areas left behind that have to be rubbed off separately. Worth a try if you're curious.

I was going to buy some more Biore pore strips when I was at Ulta, but I saw this and decided to give it a try. It was only $2.89, so I figured it was worth a shot. I've used this three times, and so far I like it.
It's really thick and goopy, and can be difficult to apply without getting it all over the place. I make thin "strips" along the sides of my nose and on my chin, where I tend to get blackheads. You can feel a cool, minty tingle while the strips dry, which I find kind of nice.
Once it's dry, you peel it off just like a regular pore strip. Although these strips seem to be a little harder to pull off, and sometimes it leaves behind a little bit of crusty-ness that has to be scrubbed off afterward. But these strips did remove my blackheads and made my pores noticably smaller. My face felt nice and smooth.
I will repurchase this instead of buying the Biore strips.

What an odd product! It's strange, but in a good, entertaining way. I have it on right now, and I don't feel much burning? I didn't cleanse or exfoliate my face first, though, because the instructions didn't mention that. I also have a higher pain threshold than the average woman, so what I think of as tingling might be more stingy to you. I've had masks be much more stingy.
I like the smell - I think it smells like tropical citrus cough drops (because of the menthol). This is nice, because the boyfriend doesn't like products that smell super-mediciney. This is more fruity medicinal.
Application is tricky! It definitely sticks to your fingers, and if you try to apply it the way the package suggests - "Squeeze a ribbon directly onto clogged area" - you will have a bit of a mess on your hands! And your faucet tap of your sink.
I ended up getting it at Drugstore.com on a whim. I think I'd purchase it again, if I saw it, or I needed to fill-out an online order to bump it to free shipping. Unfortunately, It's one of those products I saw once at Walgreens, decided to try later, and never saw it again. (Anyone else from Chicago notice this happens a LOT with cheap interesting drugstore products??? It's annoying!!!)
***Edit: Ok, I'm peeling it off now, at least the fully dried bits. I don't think it does much of anything, but I love peel-off masks. They're kind of goofy and fun to me. I've had other peel-off masks hurt MUCH worse than this! I must be a glutton for punishment or something, this isn't bad at all to me?

It feels like there isn't much product in the tube. In fact, the cashier told me to get another one, as the one I originally selected felt empty. I'd advise that you scrutinize your container before buying.
This is a glue-like substance. I usually use this on my nose, like those Biore Pore strips. It stings while drying, but does a pretty good job of pulling the gunk out of your pores. Definitely a bargain when compared to the pore strips. I won't be purchasing however, because of the stinging.

I saw this product and thought "wow, this looks like a peel off mask but super heavy duty and must remove lots more gunk". I put it on and my skin started burning, not a good sign in ANY product. It's important that if you want your skin to look good to NOT damage it. I looked at the ingredients a little more closely and realized why this wasn't that great a product. Polyvinyl alcohol is what makes it a peel off mask and can be a little irritating to some people. SD-Alcohol is NOT a good thing to have in any beauty product, especially one of the top 3 ingredients. Alcohol is NOT good for your skin because it is too drying even for the most oily skin (it ends up damaging skin). I wont be buying this again.

I just really didnt care for this product. It didnt do anything. Another for the dustbin.

Unlike many reviewers, I didn't really think the stinging was that bad, but the worst part for me was the peeling off. It was quite possibly the most hurtful mask/strip I've ever had to peel off my face. The product itself is very sticky, and it seems to be somewhat hard to apply. I had strings of it going everywhere. I also couldn't seem to get some of the glue off, so I had to scrub my face.
Overall, I didn't even see a difference after the strips (other than my skin being irritated from the rough peeling of the strip and the scrubbing to get the glue off). I wouldn't buy these again.

Stings a little, but not unbearably. Removes dead skin and minimizes the look of blackheads and pores, but does nothing whatsoever to remove them. SD alcohol is in so many beauty products, it disgusts me to hear people complain about it in this one. It is simply there to provide a quick drying agent, because if the mask had more water it would take even longer to dry. And the poly vinyl whatever is nothing bad to put on your skin, becuase it is not water soluble and has no means of transportation into your body unless you eat the freaking thing.

I jumped at this, it was fruity, cheap and what it claimed to do appealed to me big time.
I was excited and adored the scent until I applied it to my just washed face and the stinging brought tears to my eyes for the whole recommended 10 minutes and I don't have sensitive skin. Afterwards, parts still hadn't dried properly so I had to re-wash parts of my face again to remove the glue goo texture.
Not sure if I will try again, perhaps before washing my face while I still have my make up on but you do have to wonder about a product that has polyvinyl and sd alcohol as it's second and third ingredient... further down you'll find the salicyclic acid.

This product didn't really help unlcog my pores or anything. It was kind of useless and it took too long to dry. I don't think I'll use/buy this again.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I thought this product would be so much fun and so practical (no more expensive pore strips), and I LOVE mango...
But it stung so much! And it doesn't dry quickly and the burning will last more than 10 minutes. I thought I had some allergic reaction, but after I've read the reviews here I know I'm not the only one... this is going in the garbage emediately!

Well, well well. When I first saw this product in stores I was like, " OMG! This smells so friggen good." It smells like paradise. Even thought it's called "Mango" it doesn't even smell like mango in the slightest, but it still smells really great and fruity. As soon as I got home I applied some over my nose and a little bit of my cheeks. It was all fine, UNTIL IT STARTED TO BURN LIKE HELL. I was in so much agony, and it felt like my nose was on fire. Was it the menthol? Or an allergic reaction? Maybe it was the salyicilic acid.... whatever it was, my skin did not like it... BUT when it finally dried and I peeled it off my poor nose, I had no shine, my blackheads were minimized greatly, and my skin was so smooth. I guess the incredible burning was all worth it, but I honestly wouldn't buy it again. So if you want your skin to burn like mothertrucking hell, go for it! AND all the other Totally Juicy products had 30% more than the Mango Taffy Pore Strips, which was also upsetting.

dosent really do anything as far as blackheads are concerned, but it does smell good. i dont know about putting all those weird chemical ingredients on my skin for no good reason...
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I made a BIG mistake by putting this on right after I've scrubbed my face. And it STUNG my face so badly that it felt like it's burning. And when my face started to turn really red & flushed, I couldn't wait till it's dry to peel it off. I had to wash it off immediately to stop the whole ordeal. Oh my god..!! This made me feel like I just went for a chemical peel. Be very careful of this product & try to do a patch test if possible. Bleh..!!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
That's the most accurate way to put it: "not a necessary product". But it is fun for some reason. I don't think it does much to remove any blackheads. I use it on my nose. It does however, remove dead skin cells and seems to make my nose look more refined (as in pores). And I have very oily skin, so it seems to help control oil that day. Not bad. Fun. But probably won't repurchase.

This stuff sucks. I actually really like their grapefruit peel-off mask, but this one was terrible. When it dried, I lifted it off my skin, and it came off with nothing. In fact, it didn't even seem to be really bonded to my face at all. It was just resting on top of it. Waste of time and money.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Other Hair: Black Eyes: Other
Really nothing more than a peel-off mask. The packaging is definately eye-catching, and it is pretty cheap. It doesn't really help lower the population of blackheads, but it makes my skin feel a little nicer..and a bit tingly. The ingredients are not the kindest to your skin, if you look up some reviews on google, you'll find that theyre quite harsh..or just try it for yourself.
