I'm no stranger to nose pore strips. I've used them in the past. But I've never tried ones that contain charcoal. Until now!
Nose Pore Strips from the UK's 7th Heaven are treatments that target the nose, which is prone to blackheads and blemishes. The strips use charcoal from volcanic ash to absorb excess oil, loosen blackheads and blemishes, and sweep away dead cells.
The Natural Charcoal Nose Pore Strips are odd in a cool sort of way. They are to be applied on the bridge of the nose after you've cleaned your face and it's still wet. When it's applied, the strip feels like a flimsy, thin piece of adhesive. Just ask my husband, it is a little strange to see someone walking around with something that looks like dark gauze slapped on your nose. But it doesn't make me no mind. Ten to fifteen minutes is the recommended time for the pore strip to be left on. While it's sitting on your face, it will start to harden like paper mache. It's at that time the strip is ready to be taken off. It's not an all out hurt, but there is some slight pain when taking the pore strip off. It's comparable to taking a band-aid off the skin. Once you successfully get the strip off, you can see the results by taking a peek at the strip. It's not the grossest of sights but you can see where little tiny hairs, blackheads, and dirt have come off with the strip. The effectiveness is evident.
The nose pore strips contain only three ingredients - charcoal, pumice, and lavender. There are three strips to a pouch. I apply a strip every 4-5 days. I like that they're both inexpensive and provide positive results.
