Bioré Charcoal Pore Strips, First Impressions

Biore Charcoal Nose Strips


I picked these up quite a while ago, you probably remember them from my haul post at the end of July and I’m only getting around to testing them out now!  I did bring them with me when we went to Ireland, but I just didn’t get around to it.  So today was the day!  I picked these up for £8.99* and you get 6 nose strips.  So £1 more expensive than the originals.

So what are the claims of this new shiny version of the nose strips?

“BIORÉ® Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips work like a magnet, instantly locking onto and drawing out deep-down dirt & oil that can cause blackheads.

Infused with natural charcoal, these innovative pore strips draw out excess oil for the deepest clean. In just 10 minutes, you’ll remove weeks’ worth of build-up.”

So let’s take a closer look!  I’ve done some serious close ups here.  Now I’ve a fair amount of freckles, so it’s not entirely clear, but I can honestly say I don’t see a massive difference in these photos.  Can you? (Aside from the slight redness having just ripped off the strip)  I gave my skin a thorough cleanse beforehand and I followed the instructions on the packaging.  So I’m happy I gave it a good chance to work.

Before After

I’m sad that these don’t really work.  I love using them, I will use them up but I won’t repurchase.  I’m also aware that they’re not really the best thing for your skin and can cause broken capillaries etc, which is just not a good look long term!  So although I gain so much satisfaction ripping those nose strips off, I’m going to stop using them…after I use these up of course!

How do you get rid of your blackheads?  I am all ears, please share your secrets!
