I have an obsession with these strips! I LOVE pulling them off and marveling at the gunk and junk from my pores! If someone else is around, I usually shove it in their face and make them look at it as well. Yes, I am a sick and twisted individual. I'd like to note that the first few times I used these, I didnt really get results. I felt these Biore strips were all hype, a ripoff! Then I started experimenting, and realized that if I used a cleansing scrub, then followed with a pore unclogging mask (I love the super cheap and quick hydroxyl peel by St Ives) before using the Biore strip, all the extra junk blocking my pores would be cleared out of the way for the strip to get deep down. Now once a week I perform this skin routine, and have been amazed by the results. My nose isnt completely blackhead free, but is noticeably much clearer. Try it, maybe you'll become an addict like me!

i only really use this in cases of special events (like if i have a wedding to attend or something) and i know that i need to get rid of blackheads. the blackheads do return and it's not a long term solution but in cases of emergency i think it works pretty well.

This product does not seem to remove any blackheads. Not worth the money.

It seems that most of the people who chose not to purchase the nose strips again was because the product didn't remove the blackheads as it should have; however my reasoning is different.
As far as blackheads go I don't have a very big issue with blackheads around my nose. I mean I have them but for the most part they aren't very large or noticeable, and it is only every once in a while that I will get a few that are a bit larger and bother me. However ,I saw several reviews about how great the product worked so I thought never tried it so maybe I can get rid of some of the little blackheads on the side of my nose. As far as how the strips work: they worked just as the directions said they would with me. I could remove them relatively easy (without pain) and I did notice many blackheads on the strip. The only blackheads I couldn't remove were the ones on the side of my nose,next to the ridge.
Now my issue with the product wasn't that it didn't work but it seemed that for a few days after I used the product my nose would be pretty much free of large blackheads, but a 1-2 weeks later I would notice I would get more and this time more noticeable ones. This seemed to happen for the 2-3 times I used the strips. I dunno maybe it was just in my head or maybe the strips made my pores more vulnerable to getting blackheads (if that even makes sense lol). Since then I have stopped using them, also they were too expensive (like $7 for 6 strips). If you are having a problem with blackheads I see no reason why you shouldn't try them but I would definitely give it a bit to see how you like the results or maybe look for a product that is a cheaper.

This stuff is horrible! My friend gave me a strip to try out the other week and it did nothing to my blackheads! Once the strip dried i found it very painful to peel off - i have quite dry skin. So i did what the instructions told me and i wet it a bit. When i tried to peel it off, it still hurt but the strip had sort of split up into gooey pieces and there were some gooey bits still stuck on my nose that i had to scrape off with my nails.

The final result? I didnt see any difference with my blackheads at all. I was better off using a mud mask - they actually absorb oil and are less painful :)

I really love this product, it works really good and I like to see all the gunk it gets out of my nose. A little expensive, but it really works, so its worth it. Sometimes it hurts a bit when I rip them off.

I have used these since they were first introduced and have always been satisfied by the results. I have even given some to my father who swears by them too!

I have tried many cleansers but they never seem to really get the blackheads on my nose, I found that the pore strips did the trick.

I like the feeling of the blackheads being removed, my pores look so much better all cleaned out!

Ok, i dont really like this because i dont think that it works well and i've found a much better alternative for cheaper, Charcoal pore strips, i get it from Daiso ($2SGD) a box of 6, that works much much better

I love these strips. I rarely need to use them, but I LOVE to use them on my DH! LOL The strips pull out a ton of blackheads on his nose that we didn't even know were there. They definitely work, but are on the pricey side for the amount you get.
