Good Price for Count and Strips work great!

I use these sparingly only because I don’t want to irritate my skin but these work fantastic definitely make sure your skin is good and wet to get best results not just a little damp basically have water dripping off your face and then when they dry and feel really hard pull them off I wouldn’t recommend pulling them off fast I do it slow and seem to pull the most that way. Hope this helps.

Effective Blackhead Removal Given Time

I have been battling with my skin since 8th grade. I am a senior in college now. That’s a long time. A long, red, self-conscious, self-confidence annihilating time. I don’t have a pimple problem so much as a blackhead problem. My skin seems to produce silly amounts of sebum which clog the bejesus out of my pores. The issue has resolved itself some on my nose and cheeks but my forehead is the main problem. These pore strips do a rather nice job of yanking out some of the blackheads.The package comes with, as it says, 12 nose strips and 12 forehead strips. I use these in a manner that probably differs from most; the directions say to ONLY use the nose strips for the nose and forehead strips for the forehead. I ignore that. My problem area is my forehead and I honestly stick a nose strip on there AND a forehead strip. The shape of the nose strip with the little extended area makes it easy to get that little bit of skin in between your eyebrows. The regular forehead strip will go closer to my hairline to basically cover the entirety of my forehead between the two. That was one of the complaints I have with the strips; the forehead strip is TINY. There’s no way anyone could get enough coverage on their forehead with just one of those alone, hence my unusual methods.The way I have been using the strips seems to be working to date; I use them about twice a week right after my morning shower. I will wash my face with the Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask and let it sit on my face during the duration of the shower. I will then wash it off and let the hot water run over my face for a little bit to keep the pores open. When I get out I dry my hair very quickly and then slap the strips on while my forehead is still wet. After 10-15 minutes the strips become stiff and I slowly yank them off as the directions say edges to center.Generally the results aren’t amazing. I’m not pulling out nearly as much gunk as some of the users have posted pictures of, but there’s a good ten or so blackheads per strip. The way I see it, that’s still twenty less clogged pores on my face which is worth the price of the strips. I have started using these in combination with the Aztec Secret Indian Clay Mask which draws all of the impurities to the surface, my hope is to have found an effective combination between the two. So perhaps I will start seeing more stuff pulled out with everything on the surface of my skin instead of lodged deep in there.All in all the strips don’t work miracles for me but they certainly aren’t ineffective either. As long as the strips remove even a few blackheads per use, I will continue to use them.

Pretty Damn Good for Removing White/Blackheads

So I’m a guy, and I have no idea how I get so many whiteheads and blackheads in my nose. Before I was enlightened, I thought that the blackheads were little hairs sticking out of my nose. Then I realized that it was just oil and dirt – after using these pore strips.The combo pack is great because I can use the "face" ones to do the parts of my cheeks right next to the nose. Highly recommend getting these and using them once every week or two!

LOVE Biore strips – combo pack is great!

I’m sure there’s something “bad” about using these strips to pull the “junk” from your pores (much like “extractions” are often not recommended by skincare pros), but I love them. My only complaint is that the box is incredibly “girly” (by traditional american standards – which I don’t like, but can’t get rid of on my own…), so they look like “makeup” in my medicine cabinet. Personally I don’t care, but I can’t see a (male) football player buying them.That’s besides the point – these work great for clearing the pores – even more so if you do a quick steam first, and follow with a (GENTLE!) self-extraction session. I pop a couple on as soon as I finish a shower, and they’re dry and ready to remove when I’m dried-off. The combo pack is great because you get both sizes/uses – although really, it’s not going to kill anyone to use either for the other use!

I dig these crazy things

I don’t know how they work, but they are cool. I put a nose strip on my nose (there are slits to make it lay down nicely), and about ten minutes later, I was staring at what it pulled out of my clogged pores. The sticky side of the strip left a little residue on my nose, but it came off with hot water. The face strip was a little tricky, I tried it on my chin and when I pulled it up, I wanted to scream, I guess I have a little more hair than I would care to admit on my lower lip and it stuck pretty good. I may end up cutting the strips in half in the future. These are still a pretty neat little item!

I had trouble with this

I really didn’t like how it was black and I couldn’t really see the junk whenever it pulled this off my nose. It didn’t really took as much as people said it would it just took some and i left it on for 15min once too. Ill just stick to biore.

It works

I tested this on my boyfriends face as he has larger pores than mine and after peeling it off his nose, I saw all the little “fuzzy appearance” of the dirt and oil that was remove. It doesn’t hurt to use and I find the best results are after facial cleansing and slight steaming of the face.

great for the price..

ok, so i wasn’t happy about waiting over 2 weeks for arrival.. and then i tried these strips tonight. i don’t know what all the fuss is about them hurting when you remove them? i like them a lot! i didn’t give them 5 stars because they don’t take most of the white and black heads off, but they did take a lot of the stubborn ones off. Plus it does NOT hurt when you remove them.. however i do have some thick skin..literally.. tan and non sensitive.. easily came off , but i did need to rub off a little left on the top and side of my nose.. not a big deal… overall – happy and glad i bought these!

Suck out the bad stuff

This product has been so popular in Asia. It’s awesome and it finally hit the US market! I no longer have to had others transport them for me from Asia.To maximize its effect, you must wait until the pimple to “mature” with a white head. Otherwise, it’s useless. The reason for the white head is that the liquid inside the bump is mostly ready to come out. When you stick the Nexcare “sticker” onto the white head, it would start to do its magic, which is sucking out the white stuff from the pimple. Give it about a day or even a night, you’ll see the result. It’s pretty amazing. It is also pretty invisible. When my brother has one on his face, I could barely notice it.These are much thicker and bigger than the ones sold in Asia. I would cut it into half for my smaller acne. It sticks well. It covers well. When I remove it after a night of sleeping with it on, I would be able to clean out the stuff by squeezing it with two q-tips. Then, voila, the gigantic bump would be gone.Awesome stuff!!

Kind of mixed emotions about this…

I’m of two minds about this product. On one hand, I do see some immediate improvement, but on the other hand there are things about this that need some work as a whole.The first thing I noticed was that this was sealed in sterile packaging, something that really made me think well of it straightaway. Think about it: this is something that you’ll be wearing on your body for longer periods of time, so you want it to be sterile. The only downfall is that there wasn’t a way to reseal the packaging outside of just putting it back in its cardboard box. I can’t help but wonder how long this will stay “fresh” once the packaging is opened. I can always put it in a plastic baggie, but I wish that I had a bit more information about this product’s shelf life and how long I should keep it after the packaging has been opened. The instructions and other paperwork on this are pretty slim on stuff like that. I also didn’t really have any information on how long you should leave this on your skin. It says that you’ll see it turn white and that you can put the next one on as soon as the other one turns white, but nothing on saying how long is too long. I really wish that we had a bit more to go on, as I’d like to know more about what is the longest someone can wear these, how much is too much, etc. There are the obvious “you’ll know when your skin starts falling off” signs, but not everyone shows the more severe symptoms until it’s a bit too late. Maybe I’m a little too leery about this, though. Just because there is no medication in this doesn’t mean that your body can’t react in other ways.The second was that this stuff seemed to have some problems immediately sticking to my skin. I’d washed the area around my nose (my trouble area) but it had problems sticking at first. After a while it seemed to stay, but I can’t help but worry about how this will stay on for those who are stomach sleepers and/or like to roll around while sleeping. The other ones I put on stayed on, so I’m not overly worried about this.The third thing I noticed was that these aren’t really all that see-through. I wouldn’t recommend wearing these about your daily life. They’re pretty noticeable and that wouldn’t bother me except they say “discreet”. Yeah, no. They’re not exactly obtrusive feeling and you won’t overly mind if you’re sitting around your room or in a place where you’re not in the public eye, but you wouldn’t want to wear these to the office or to school. They do stand out.All that aside, these do seem to work. I did notice that some trouble spots were a little less red when I woke up to go to work. (I’d had these on for about 6-7 hours at this point.) I didn’t see the overwhelming white patches that you see in the pictures, but I did see a few.In the end the key question is whether or not I’d buy these with my own money. Maybe. I have a lot in this package left to use and given that this is the type of thing that I’ll have to give updates to, I will give a tentative recommendation. I will note that the less oily patches didn’t show as much as the more oily parts did. That’s sort of common sense in a way, but I’m mentioning this more because unless you have a huge zit, are prone to oil boils, or are extremely oily, this might be something you might not use as much of. It seems to work well enough for now and I’ll see how this does over a period of a few weeks as opposed to just a few days. I might end up coming back to add another star if the redness keeps going down while I use this.

Useful to prevent picking

The Nexcare Acne Absorbing Cover, Two Sizes, 36 Count is a repackaging of 3M’s hydrocolloid dressing (Tegaderm), with the dressing made smaller. The larger circular patch measures 12mm and the smaller is roughly 8mm in diameter. The package says that the covers will absorb oily secretions (turning white in the process), and make pimples less pronounced.The covers are sandwiched between two sheets of plastic, with the discs adhering to the bottom sheet, and the whole thing in a sterile (until opened, of course)wrapper (almost like a band-aid wrapper). The covers are a little difficult to remove from the plastic sheet, and have a tendency to stick to the fingernail I use to lift them from the plastic.I used these both on myself, and on my teen daughter who has acne around her nasal area. I prepared the skin by washing with my usual facial cleanser, rinsed well, and used a cotton ball with common rubbing alcohol around the area I was going to affix the cover. After peeling the patch from the sheet of plastic, they adhered well to the skin, and the almost translucent quality of the dressing made them less noticeable than one would think. Supposedly these can be covered with makeup, but I think that the outline of the cover would still be noticeable on most parts of the face.The patches remained in place until the morning (roughly 8-10 hours later) on both my daughter and myself. I am a stomach sleeper, and the cover did not move during the night on my face; my daughter sleeps like a crash-test dummy-on her stomach, back, side, head hanging off the bed- and the cover also remained in place.The cover did go from translucent to opaque white as the dressing absorbed secretions. I noticed that the pimples on my daughter’s face were flatter and less inflamed looking the next morning. I also noticed that these work best on blemishes that have already progressed to the stage where they have a prominent white head on them, rather than those that are still lurking beneath the surface.I would recommend these for those who have a tendency to pick at blemishes, and have no problem wearing a dressing on their face. Would I wear these in public? I don’t know, as I have not tried to cover them with make-up. The best part is, they do absorb stuff and prevent my teen from picking-picking-picking and causing potential scarring.

SO much better than the original

My blackheads are super stubborn.When I had the “original” biore strips, sebum, dirt, and blackhead rarely came out. If they did maybe 1 or 3. But this one, if you use after you steam and exfoliate dead skin cells, than it picks out 10~20. The regular ones, although it is cheap or contains more strips, this is very much more worth that the others.But the smell is disgusting. I think its the witch hazel. Also it is better, it doesn’t take out the whole mess and gunk in there so don’t hope that in one use, your blackhead problems will be gone.

Hopeful

I just recently started using these strips and so far they have removed some of the blackheads on my nose. The disappointing part was that the only way I could tell was the fact that I could see them on the strip. My nose really didn’t look much different at all.I’m hoping that after I use all 8 strips that I’ll be able to notice a considerable difference.Crossing my fingers.It’s certainly not an instant form of elimination(not that I really expected such a miracle).Word of advice: It helps to put an extremely hot cloth over your nose to open your pores before you put on the strip. Makes a difference compared to just quickly wetting your nose.I’d say this product is worth a shot if you have the money. In my opinon 5 less blackheads are better than none.

Biore strips

I have been using these occasionally for a few years now and have noticed a difference in my pores, especially on my nose. I like how they have added slits around the nose strips to help prevent the wrinkles and bubbles on the strip I used to get. The package recommends not using them more than once every three days. I use them twice a month (or when I remember) and use the Biore triple action astingent immediately after removing the strips. I have had no adverse reactions to this item. You should not use if you have sunburn, blemishes, excessively dry skin or are sensitive to bandages or peel-off masks. Also, stick with the Biore brand, I have tried drug store knockoffs and they ARE NOT the same.

A good pore blaster, but not perfect.

Here’s a review coming from a guy who cares about hygiene. I remember using these strips when they first came out over 10 years ago, and they worked great- almost half of my blackheads would get removed each time I’d use one of these! Over the last couple of years though, something’s happened to the strips, and while they still work well, only about a third of my blackheads get removed with one strip.These strips are easy to use, and as long as you -follow the directions-, you shouldn’t be having any problems. Get your nose wet, and with dry hands, place the strip on your nose, covering the area where most of the problem blackheads are. Leave it on there for 10-15 minutes (when the strip has hardened), and then peel it at the sides. Examine it closely, and you’re sure to see a bunch of junk that it sucked out of your pores. It’s actually fascinating to look at, and beats pinching your nose, getting one blackhead out at a time.But like I mentioned, these won’t completely get rid of them, and I’ve always had a hard time getting the blackheads on the sides of my nose, so you might want to look into other products or ask a specialist. But for a casual person who just wants their nose to look a little better, I highly recommend these. ‘not a bad price either on here!

DO NOT USE!

Although, yes these strips work to get the dirt out of your pore, they stretch out your pores when you pull them off and getting rid of enlarged pores is almost impossible. And when you stretch out your pores it is easier for them to catch dirt and its just not good! Do more research!

not too good I gotta say

Welp, not great. Didn’t really do anything. But I found a natural way to make it, 1 TBSP of gelatin powder, mixed with 1 and 1/2 TBSP of milk, heat in microwave for about 10 seconds,then apply to your face with a brush, let dry 10 minutes, peel off.BAM, there’s your strip, easy to make. can use Guar gum, xanthum gum, or Agar powder for a vegetarian mixture, because gelatin contains pork as you know.

Biore strips are like my sick little addiction. I literally will put them all over my face just to see what they pull out. They really DO pull out blackheads. Its amazing. Just be sure to let them dry totally before peeling them off. Sometimes it hurts a bit pulling them off but its worth it to see what gunk its pulling out of your pores. I love them.

They work, but you should avoid using strips

These pore strips do a great job of pulling junk out. People who complain about them not working probably didn’t follow directions…you need to wet your nose with water first. The reason I give this product a low score is because it makes your nose look horrible right after you use it. It made the pores on my nose look red and enlarged, which is to be expected after forcefully pulling stuff out of them. Not only that, I got a lot of pimples on my nose even after applying astringent to try to close the pores and benzoyl peroxide to keep them clean. I went through 10 weeks of using one of these strips every week and I can honestly say it isn’t worth it.

Disappointing

Well, to be fair I am not impressed with the Biore face strips either, but these pretty much just ripped out some face fuzz and left the clogged pores undisturbed. I don’t think any of this stuff works that great unless you have pores that are fairly enlarged. Steaming and a gentle once over with a good clean comodone remover is still the best way to accomplish pore cleaning.

Feels good and works really well

Feels good and works really well. It always manages to pull out a ton of blackheads. Compared to other products, the chemicals used in this seem to be healthier/less unhealthy too.Compared to Biore, this product doesn’t perform as well for me if I follow both products’ instructions. In fact, this one barely pulls out any blackheads if I follow the instructions.However, what I do is wet my nose, apply the strip, and then apply extra water on top of the strip so that the whole strip is quite wet. It takes a little longer for it to dry because of this, but it works really well when I do it this way. For those who aren’t finding this product to be very effective, you might want to give this method a try.
