Just used this product tonight since I used the biore nose strip last week, and the result- way better product than biore. With this product I can't believe how much impurities it took out from my nose, twice as much than the biore product did. Didn't leave any residue on my nose and I felt that my nose feels smoother afterwards. It smells a little bit but you can tell by the smell that it is not full of chemicals and it's bearable. When I first open the product I was kinda taken aback by how small, with it's weird shape with no slits anywhere, so I told myself how am I gonna put this product on, but in the end I like the shape better coz it really covers my nose and it sticked on much better. When I took it off it hurts quite a bit, I have a very sensitive nose ( it can get bruise easily, just by pinching), it's like you put a packaging tape on a part of your body with hair and suddenly you pull the tape, but I guess it's worth it...Price wise, I don't know what is cheaper and I know you will say it's only 99c but I think I got the biore 14 strips for about 10 or 12 dollars...( so not bad at all)!

Works like a Biore, but I don't know what it exactly it was, but my nose stayed clearer longer afterwards than with the Biore. I love it! I only need to use it once a month now!

I was pleasantly surprised by how well this pore strip worked on me. I had previously used the Biore nose strips and those would always cause so much pain, that by the end of it my nose was red, a lot of residue from the product, irritated skin, and watery eyes. This product, fortunately, did not cause any of those! I was able to get rid of a lot of my black heads, without having my eyes get teary, no stinging, no skin irritation, etc. These strips also had great coverage for all the problem areas around my nose, which other nose strips have failed because they would easily fall apart as I took it out of its packaging. The only complaint I have of this is the smell, however, I think it is bearable for the results. Definitely a great product to try out!

I followed the same method I do with the American pore strips basically waiting until it hardens and then pull it off. It did a good job of extracting the blackheads and so therefore is true to its claim. The only noticeable difference is that the strips size was clearly made for people with small button noses in mind. This is not a drawback just stating a fact. I don't have a crazy huge nose but compared to the American brands of pore strips I used they always covered my entire nasal area and not just the nose itself. :0) So if you have been blessed with a bit larger nose keep the strips size in mind and perhaps double up.

it is a nice pore strip because u can smell the natural ingredients, and u know it's not out of chemical pore strip. It hurts when u pull it off, but ur skin feels smooth and healthy afterwards.

One of the best black head strip ever!! It hurt me a little when I was putting it out, but when I saw the result, I was totally worth it. J

I wouldn't really follow the instruction exactly and remove the strip until it's ready (I waited until it hardens on my nose); but boy was I surprised last night when I saw all those dirty things come out on the strip. It has a very distinct smell of black beans, which although bothered me a bit, I was able to get used to the smell eventually. I would recommend not to use it more than once every 2 weeks, and also always follow up with a good pore tightener. (Cause you have to use toner no matter what anyways. So, follow up with pore tightener AND toner.)

Product is amazing. It gets rid of pretty much ALL my blackhead and whiteheads! It looks gross on the strip, but gives you a very happy feeling after because all that gunk is off your face. This is the best pore strip I've ever tried.
