I have been using these strips since middle school. They really do help keep gunk out when used regularly, but with every use I'd say they only pick up about 80%. If I go without using these for a couple weeks the amount of gunk on the strip is unreal! I apply right after washing and exfoliating my face when it's still sopping wet and then I pat dry with towel. When you remove make sure you pull up from both ends of the strip very slowly, I find if you rip it quickly in one direction less funk from your pores sticks to the paper as it comes off. Overall this is and will continue to be a staple in my beauty regimine.

I've been using this product for a few years, I have to admit I haven't really seen it get that many blackheads but it has gotten lots of white heads so it does work pretty well I would repurchase.

I use this once a week but you have to be attentive to it, I make sure I'm pressing down a lot during the first 5 minutes so it actually sticks but it works decently well.

I don't have a lot of blackheads on my nose, but I thought I'd try these out to get rid of the few that I do have there. Unfortunately, they really disappointed me and I didn't notice any difference after taking it off. I'll admit I may have used it incorrectly, or something like that, which is why I'm trying again this weekend with a second strip, but for all the hype, these really didn't seem that great to me.

This works for me but not amazingly. It definitely unclogs my pores but still leaves a few stuff behind. I'd say it catches around 80% of the gunk stuck in your pores. You should was your face with warm water or take a steamy shower before you use these to open up your pores a little so it's easier to pull out the gunk stuck in them. Sometimes a little of the glue residue is left but you can just rinse it off.

These strips claim to get rid of blackheads on the nose. I wouldn't buy these ever again. It comes in a box and you just remove the pore strips and place them across your nose then just leave it on there for 5 or 10 minutes. I didn't notice any difference on my nose after using it. I wouldn't waste a good 6 dollars on these because it doesn't work.

Although I gave this product an average rating I will continue to repurchase these strips. First off, if you are using Retinol-A or Acutane or anything else like these products please do not use these strips because the strips can damage your skin just like they say not to get your eye brows waxed, same thing. This product is a good one to keep around in your drawers at home whenever you get a blackhead attack, but I would not necessarily depend on it. Usually, if I get a lot of blackheads I will use this product with a combination of a mask like the Indian healing clay mask. I use the strips for my nose and the all over face strips. Whenever I use these strips I usually use three, one for my forehead, one for my nose, and one for my chin. I wouldn't use the strips more than twice a week and that might be a bit much. Also if it hurts too much to pull them off just re-wet the strip and it will slip right off.

I don't have a lot of blackheads (I do get some), but I have a lot of white-ish gunk in the pores on my nose. I can literally squeeze out some every day, it's super gross. I was looking for a product to cut down on the amount of squeezing I have to do, but this is unfortunately not it. I do see a lot of things getting pulled off of my nose, but if I use my nails and squeeze as if I'm popping a pimple, a lot of stuff still comes out. It's not painful or anything, but for the price and the lack of results, I won't be repurchasing. It also doesn't work too well for the crease of the nose, which is where I have the most trouble getting gunk out.

I use these when I appear to be developing more blackheads than usual on my nose. They're my love-hate product. I have sensitive skin and these really irritate it, but they're very effective at pulling gunk out of the pores and helping blackheads clear up quickly. I'll continue to use them to control the problem when blackheads flare up, but I can't use them on a regular basis

I used to use this a year ago and it worked perfectly for me. It gets most of the dirty stuff off my nose and the surface of my nose feels noticeably smoother after. Recently repurchased it because my blackheads were coming back and using it again made me realise how good it really is!! I will never stop purchasing it from now on. Oh, and it doesn't get all the stuff out the first time around. After a few times, your nose should be way clearer than before!

Fantastic product which I have used for years. I keep them in stock and use one or two when I feel my pores really need a deep cleaning. Extremely effective and well-priced. Have not seen anything else on the market quite like it.

When my nose really needs some help with blackheads, I will use this, and it does an OK good job. It removes quite a bit,but only when you have A LOT of blackheads. I would only recommend using this once every 2 weeks at most. I personally only use them every 4 weeks. I do not have sensitive skin, but this did irritate my skin around my nose area when I used it every week. :( I only find it to hurt when I remove it is when I leave it on for too long. I also find it to work best after a shower, and make sure to thoroughly wet the nose before apply the strip. You also need to experience with good timing. If pulled too early or too late, the strip is pretty much useless.
Overall, an OK product, but may irritate skin if used too often depending on your skin type.

Oh these are great. I used to have only good results with the ultra ones, but when I went to the store I could only find the original.
These work best after a shower and a light peel with glycolic acid. I don't get good results if I don't do the peel first.
I stick these on a very wet nose, wet down my fingers with hot water, and push it into the sides of my nose, and blot gently with a towel.
It gets all the stuff out even on the sides that I can't get with an extractor, and they work even better on DH.

I failed with these until I used hermionestar91's method of application. I shower or thoroughly steam my nose for 10-15 minutes. I apply these on extremely wet skin (if you have a nose ring like me, poke a hole for it so the strip can lie flat). Adding water on top of the strip helps it adhere somehow. The hardest part is getting it to stick to all the contours of the nose. If you manage that and wait for the whole shebang to dry completely, it's a ball to remove. I don't have blackheads but this removes a lot of gunk and dead skin. I like torturing my SO with these as well. A true guilty pleasure and a satisfying product overall. Pricey, but worth it.

I really like this one it worked for me... I didn't really like the strips that came in the white packaging maybe its a different formula... I don't know.

This product actually GAVE me blackheads. It turns out that I have tiny hairs on my nose and the strips ripped those out and left me with open pores. Therefore I woke up with blackheads the next day. I will not repurchase.

For me this stuff was a joke. I tried it so many different times and I hardly got anything off.

As the reviewer below wrote, these are more of a novelty than an essential. Yet I've been using them on and off for 10 years! For me, these pretty much work as advertised: they pull the gunk out of the pores on my nose. But they don't work to keep pores clear, shrink pores, etc. -- which is fine, because that's not really what they are meant for. I've found that the "original" kind work better for me; the "ultra" just have a menthol smell and don't pull more from my pores.
I use these about every 3-4 weeks (which helps to cut down on the cost), and I find them most effective after taking a hot shower then using a Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle Peel Pad to soften the clogs in my pores. Just as a heads up, I do find that my nose is oilier than normal for a couple days after I use these.
In all, is this a miracle product? No. But I do find the strips effective for my monthly at home facial, and I'll keep buying them.

I've used these off and on since I was a teenager. Not as strong as they used to be...but they do work. More of a novelty than an essential, I do admit its fun to look at all the gunk it pulls out

Have been using this product for years and it does it's job every time! Nose must be clean and damp enough for the product to work effectively.
