  • Made with natural charcoal, which is known for its ability to draw out and trap impurities. 
  • These are claimed to pull out even more dirt that causes blackhead leaving skin clean and 3x less oily.
How to use nose strips?
Check out my video for a quick demo. This was my first time using them and they were quite easy to use.
  1. Each strip is individually packed with the steps listed on them. Remove the strip from pouch.
  2. Twist strip to loosen and separate slits.
  3. After washing your face, thoroughly wet your nose (strip won't stick to dry nose).
  4. Dry hands and peel strip off plastic liner. 
  5. Apply to nose area, smooth side down, pressing down to ensure good contact with skin.
  6. Let dry for about 10-15 minutes until stiff to touch. I noticed that it started to become tight onto skin.
  7. Slowly and carefully peel off starting from edges, pulling towards center. You might get some residue and it comes off if you rinse. I just wiped it with wet tissue paper and it came off easily.
First Impressions
I personally felt like these didn't really do much (see comparison photo below). I do use Clarisonic on a daily basis and I feel like my pores aren't that unclogged, so that's probably why I didn't notice much of a difference. It was a bit painful to remove and my nose became red. However, the redness went away. I've tried the original ones long time ago but don't remember if those were effective but few people commented on my video saying that the original ones are better. I don't think I will buy them again after using the other strips but I'm planning on getting the original ones.
