Other than white heads, another challenging problem I’m currently facing are BLACKHEADS on my nose. Sometimes I wonder what causes these tiny black little demons on my nose. After some googling, I noticed that it’s probably because of my large pores and oily skin on my nose. Its really annoying when my nose looks like a strawberry, if you know what I mean.
I tried a lot of different ways to get rid of the blackheads on my nose, including home remedies using egg white but it was not effective for me and I find it gross at the same time due to the raw egg smell. I tested out this Biore Pore pack before few years back, and it doesn’t seems help me anything. But after so many years, I still couldn’t find any other alternative brands that are better than this. So, I decided to give Biore another try again.
To me, the most important requirement for pore packs is the stickiness. Or else, you’re not gonna pull out the little things in your pores. Actually I wasn’t sure the difference between this black one and the citrus, probably just different scent? The reason why I bought this two mainly because of the colour.
For the one in black, I could clearly see how much junk was pulled out and stuck on the strip. I remembered they were having a promos so I just grabbed another one with citrus. Before I used this nose pack, I heard a lot of my friends saying that it will be harsh on our skin but to me, I’m still fine with it and so far no irritation *touchwood*.
The nose strips claim to remove blackheads, whiteheads, dirt, and sebum from pores for a smooth, deep clean. Biore Pore Pack Black that contains charcoal helps in oil absorption and suitable for people with oily skin. Most people actually mistaken the black ones for men, but they’re wrong! It can be used by everyone. As for the Citrus crush, if I’m not wrong, it is a limited edition version.
How to Use:
AFTER WASHING YOUR FACE, THOROUGHLY WET YOUR NOSE OR OTHER FACE AREA. PEEL THE PLASTIC LINER OFF THE BACK OF THE STRIP AND PRESS IT ON YOUR SKIN, SMOOTH-SIDE DOWN. LET IT DRY FOR 10-15 MINUTES. THEN SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY PEEL OFF THE STRIP, STARTING AT THE EDGES. BECAUSE THE STRIP INTERACTS WITH THE OUTERMOST LAYER OF THE SKIN, IT WON’T CAUSE PAIN, DAMAGE OR UNSIGHTLY IRRITATION.
Normally I’ll use it during night time after washing my face. In the day time, I’m too rushed for work and I’m not gonna waste my time on this. It’s best to steam your nose before you apply the pore pack, but this is optional. You may just rub and wet your nose area with lukewarm water as well.
The packet was pretty thin which is expected. I had a lot of whiteheads and blackheads on my nose area and I really wanted to get rid of it soon, sometimes I just couldn’t resist and squeeze it out. This is a very bad practice! Please don’t do it or you may leave a scar on your nose.
After wetting my nose, I leave on for nearly 10 minutes before tearing it off. I was so excited to see the amount of junk I got pull put from my nose. Nah, I put too much hope on it. Neither the citrus crush or black pore pack help much at all, nothing was pulled out. The stickiness of the pores pack was not as sticky as other brands that I have tested before. Basically this is a waste of time and money. After so long, Biore still did not change on their formulation and improve on it. I wont be giving this product any rating because it doesn’t help me on my blackhead at all. Totally disappointed and I will never try again for the 3rd time!
