Let me start with saying that my face is sensitive. There are plenty of products I cannot use because I’ll get rashes from it, one product being charcoal face wash. Even though I did break out from using charcoal face wash, I thought that I would give the charcoal nose pore strips a chance. Partially because I never tried nose pore strips before and really wanted to.
With that being said, I’m really glad that I tried this. The pore strip that I used was by So Fresh So Clean. I found this at TJ Maxx for a good price.
Here are my thoughts:
In order to apply the strip, you really need to wet your nose. I probably could have applied even more water to this strip to be more effective. Below is my before picture and with the strip on.
After 15 minutes, it was time to take the strip off. This was the hardest part. I’m not sure if it’s because I didn’t apply enough water, but taking this strip off was painful. Painful as in there were tears in my eyes. I mean that must mean it worked right? Well, looking at my strip below, you can kind of see all the dirt and dead skin that came with it. There isn’t much of a difference from my before pic, but my nose was super smooth and felt much cleaner.
So for the real test for me – did I break out from this? Thankfully, I did not break out. My nose is still super smooth! I would definitely use this again, but I definitely would add more water to it. Hopefully it won’t be as painful next time.
