I've searched far and wide finding my ever favorite nose patch from The Face Shop. I think it's been more than a year that ALMOST ALL branches of TFS doesn't cater those patches anymore. For me it's the best nose strip I've ever found! So great that I am bragging it to everyone here. Since it was always out of stock, I tried using another nose strip which I found from Nature Republic a week ago.
Almost all nose patches I've tried are the same. This one, however claims to be natural. Most, if not all, of Nature Republic's products are natural. So I thought this might be the better counterpart of my missing fave nose strip.
It differs from other nose strips because of it's shape. It has a curve shape that helps to easily fit on the nose. They also had photos that it can be used on the chin and on the forehead part. Very cute packaging too!
One thing I noticed was the product was stickier than other nose strips I tried. It's too sticky and some of the sticky residue transferred on my hands. I was a bit irritated and actually wanted to remove it already from the moment I put it on. But I tried to be patient to see the result, which I hope will be the opposite of the earlier experience. After waiting for more than 15 minutes, removing it was easy. The result though is not what I thought of.
There's little to nothing at all. Yes, it removed some of the whiteheads but not much compared to my review on the volcanic clay nose strip. The latter literally took off all of the visible blackheads, opposite to this one.
Compared to all the strips I used, the one from TFS still has the gold record. I really really hope they'll put it in stock again. I hope it's not obsolete or what. I miss that product so much!
Yay for me! (｡◕‿◕｡)
