I usually use this product after showering or cleansing my face so that my pore are open and should be the most effective. I dampen my nose with a bit of warm water, wipe my hands dry and remove the the strip from the packet. It will take at least 10 mins to harden up and at this point you will know its ready to remove. I generally remove this by ripping it off quickly. It does hurt a bit but I love how it leaves my nose super smooth and soft! The strip did take off all the whiteheads and blackheads.
So I bought this with super high expectations because my friend has used it and said it worked well on her. When I used it, there wasn't much blackheads/whiteheads on it after I removed it. I was hoping it would pick up more. It's easy to use and the packaging is simple but I guess the effect just wasn't there. Personally, I wouldn't recommend it but there's no harm in giving it a go since it did work fine for my friend!
This is so bad, I really want to like it but I can't. First of all, this product doesn't remove my blackheads well. It does get some blackheads on the wings of my nose, but for those on the centre of my nose, it doesn't work at all. It is awfully drying on my skin, when peeling the pore strips off GENTLY from my face, this pore strip peels off the epidermal layer of my skin too! It even leaves my nose red and sore. Bad product.
i buy this from watsons and so far, i only purchased it twice. i like that using nose strip, it is a clean process as i do not have to apply ointment or exfoliating cream on my face. i just need a sticker and pull it off afterwards and dispose. but this does not work very well as i feel like it did nothing to help the blackheads on my nose. not recommended. it can also be drying when you pull it off though it does not sting and also wont hurt to peel it off
I bought this months ago. After trying this, this is not effective and does not pull out any white heads or black heads. Instead, it is drying my nose after pealing off this from my nose. I stick this on my nose after cleansing. I leave it on my nose for around 15 minutes and peel off. There is no any effect on my nose but my nose becomes so dry whereby skin starts to peel off. Not recommended.
