I used Pond's pore strips a couple years ago and I don't think they've changed since then. They don't work. Like at all. They are a sticky mess when you try to put them on your nose. They are hard to smooth down and get to stay in place while you wait for them to dry. And then when your nose is finally the paper mache you want it to be, you pull it off all excited that your blackheads will be gone and low and behold, all your blackheads are still occupying their pores and you have dried glue all over your nose. So you clean your nose off and think "well maybe I just couldn't see the gunk it took off my nose." So you inspect the used pore strip and find what looks like tiny little hairs. You think, "oh, maybe that's just little whiteheads I had on my nose. But no, you figure out that it is just the paper that got messed up from having the glue torn off it. And then you are angry because you spent money on these things and they don't work at all. You use up the whole box hoping that if you prep your nose right, they'll work. They don't. So then you write a review telling others not to buy them. And you buy yourself some Biore pore strips, which work amazingly.
