It doesn't take a rocket scientist to analyse how to effectively use this, but some common sense might help. Follow the below steps if you have difficulties getting the product to work!


1) Cleanse your skin before using. Any oil or residue on your skin is going to obstruct the cleansing strip from working properly.


2) After patting my skin dry with a towel, this is what i do. I soak a small area of my face towel with some warm water, and gently press it onto my nose and nose wing area (the area that the cleansing strip is going to be stuck on). The purpose of doing this is so that your pores will open up and the gunk can emerge better.


3) Wet the above said area with warm water, then stick on your pore strip.


4) After 10-15mins, remove, and.. this last step is so important... ***Seal your open pores with an antiseptic toner. If you don't do this, your pores will remain open and dilated, and more oil and dirt will accumulate and get in, resulting in the Neverending Story. I use Seabreeze Antiseptic (by Shiseido). It has a cool tingly feel and for sure the antiseptic is killing the nasty bacteria accumulated from the dust and dirt in the city. With some luck you probably can find it at a Japanese supermarket/pharmacy near you. It's quite a famous product, but doesn't cost alot.


After doing all this, for sure i am having a very very smooth nose for the next few days. Once i detect those nasty white/blackheads again, i repeat the procedure.


Class dismissed.

I do like this product, Ive been using it for about 3 weeks now,
2 times a week. I love the little box they come in i find it soooo cute.
Some things I dont like about this product is that when removing then I find it does hurt quite a bit and it doesnt remove as much blackheads as i would want because I do have alot of blackheads on my nose (its something I have a problem with) Ive beeen trying many different products to get rid of my blackheads but I havent found any that I REALLLY like. The next products Im going to try are the Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask, Mud Pack Face Mask, and Grape Seed Extract Mask. Ive been reading the reviews and they are alot better than the Biore Pore Cleansing Strips...
Also this product is pretty expensive, in Canada I got 8 for about 10$ so I dont like the price.
I might buy this again but probably not.

I love these things! It is so amazing how many pore it cleans out! I use these whenever my nose feels ruff due to bumps. Afterward my nose feels smooth again. I have used these for years now and I will defiently continue to purchase.

Ugh. So I got one of these as a free sample and I have a crazy messed nose with lots of little blackheads so I was like "cool, let's see if I can get rid of those pesky little things."
I did as directed.
It kind of hurt to pull it off. It really dries on there tight. I think it's too rough on the skin. When I pulled it off my nose I noticed it really didn't even have that much gunk on the strip. Also, my nose was red and shiny and irritated looking for days.
It's possible that maybe I just have sensitive skin. But still, it certainly didn't help at all.

I don't have many blackheads, but I can see small ones and these did not help the cause at all. Would not repurchase.

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.
