It's been a while since I last posted a review regarding beauty products. I recently gave birth and because I didn't use much products on myself during pregnancy, a lot of beauty stuff were stock on my beauty shelf. So what better way to experience them is to use them (or if I'll get the chance to sell the items, then it would be better because I can save up for baby! :) ). Anyway, one of the product I recently use is The Face Shop's Blackhead Out Dual Nose Strips. My whiteheads and blackheads were stressing me out for 9 months and it's time to get rid of them.
This item was given to me by my sister to try out. She actually didn't like it and told me to use it and see if it will work for me. Too bad because it didn't worked for me either.
This has two steps. I just followed what was written on both part which is to apply for 15 minutes. Both has the same instruction. The first one has a strong smell for me. It's just a simple patch with a little essence that you need to apply which claims that it removes blackhead by using cotton buds to softly remove blackheads. This step didn't worked for me at all. I cleaned it thoroughly but nothing happened.
The second step claims to be a Pore Tightening Sheet that tightens the pores after the first cleaning happened. The mask was sticky to the core, makes it difficult to apply. Even this didn't felt like it tightens my skin's pores'. In short, I didn't felt any improvement on my nose area after the whole session.
I already tried series of nose strips and nose packs in the past. The most effective one for me is also from The Face Shop which is their Volcanic Clay Mask. I totally swear by it! It's super effective that I repeatedly used it for the longest period I ever know. It's just that it was always out of stock and I think they totally removed it from their line which is the saddest thing ever!
- Got it for FREE from my sister.
- English translation was provided even if it's a Korean product.
- Blackheads didn't come out.
- No tightening of pores happened after the second mask application.
Bought from: The Face Shop
Size: 2 sheets in 1 pack
I have a new mask to try which was sponsored by Miss Suzanne's shop which was Suzanne's Emporium. Will try that one out by next week and let's see how will that work out. Hoping it will be better than this!
