If you haven’t heard about Biore Pore Strips I’ll be very surprised as everyone seems to have been talking about these lately. The miracle product that will clear all your blackheads and also your pores that costs £7.99, but did they work for me?
You’d have thought pain inducing strips you rip off your nose would be cheap and all that but no. These nose strips are a rather eyewatering £7.99! Yes that’s £7.99 for 6 lots of pain. The way to use them is pretty simple:
- Wet your face and nose,
- Apply strip to nose,
- Wait 10 minutes,
- Remove when dry and see results.
Easy enough really. I wasn’t expecting a miracle once I took it off but I was expecting to see quite a few little specs. I know I have blackheads on my nose I can see them and remove them myself, (gross I know, I’m sorry!) But when I peeled this off, not only did it hurt, but there was nothing on there at all. I was planning to show you the before and after of the strip but you wouldn’t see anything. Since my first strip I’ve used a few more and it’s been the same every time nothing there. I mentioned this on Twitter and someone informed me that I may have more sebaceous filaments than blackheads so pore strips aren’t for me after all. As far as I’ve read, sebaceous filaments are naturally occurring formations that channel oil from your pores onto your skin to help moisturise it; so basically your face makes it own moisturiser really!
I have invested in a couple more types of pore strips just in case and I plan to do a comparison on them soon. Sorry for the short post, I thought I would have more to say on the subject. Have you tried Biore Pore Strips or just pore strips in general? Did they work for you?
