I have long suffered with clog pores around my nose and so am constantly on the lookout for products that will help clear the problem. Having tried many different pore strips in the past I had almost given up hope, ones I had bought before did nothing at all – some falling off despite me applying them to wet/dry skin as instructed!
But I had heard some positive things about these Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips (RRP £10.99) and so when I saw them on offer in my local Superdrug for about £4 I picked up a pack.
You are meant to apply them to a thoroughly wet area, so after splashing my face with water I removed the strip from its packaging and pressed down on to the nose.
The instructions advise you that the strip will feel like “paper mache” when it is drying and that after 10-15 minutes you can remove it.
I don’t wax but oh my god, I can imagine the pain of removing this was similar to that! I removed the strip just under the 15 minute mark and it was almost stuck solid. My eyes were streaming as I attempted to remove the strip and after my skin was left feeling tender.
What’s more on inspection of the strip it hadn’t even removed much at all!
I don’t like to write negative reviews but this is certainly one product I won’t be purchasing again!0
