These really deep clean out your pores and leave them feeling clean and smaller! Works best if you clean your skin first then wet the area and apply. When you remove do so slowly and you will remove the most gunk. I think these work much better than the Biore Charcoal ones.
Sometimes these don't pull the dirt out as well as they should but over all, I like them. They are soft and there is a satisfaction in seeing that dirt come out and knowing your pores are cleaner.
One of my favorites!
I love this face wash! I've been using it since I was 16 (I'm 27 now). It always makes me feel clean without feeling dry. Its almost like a spa experience at home. I plan on using this product forever! Thanks again, Biore!
Biore pore strips are the best! They work very well on my nose. I use them a few nights a week to clear my pores and take away the blackheads. They are super easy to use and you can put them on at any time. Make sure your nose is very wet when you apply the strip so it sticks well. Totally recommend these for regular use.

omg!! I so love love this product. It is amazing. Highly reccomend it.
i love biore
I personally kinda have a thing for the MAC ones but they kinda leave my skin sticky after use. Yak! I've been using Biore ones for ages and I'm really diggin' on Neutrogena's as they smell really nice.
The wipes are fresh smelling and provide an easy way to clean up when you're being a little lazy and avoiding your normal night time skin care regime. They do an ok job on waterproof mascara, not great, but not bad either plus they don't leave skin feeling tight after use. Sensitive types be aware as the fragrance is pleasant enough but can prove a little too much for some.
If you're a lazy girl at the end of a long day and aren't interested in using a ton of product to get your makeup off, Biore Makeup Remover Towelettes offers a cheap and easy way to get your makeup off quick and easy.
These are okay if you are near a sink.
I like these wipes if I have the time to remove my makeup, but they aren't a great everyday facial cleanser. They do remove dirt, impurities, and grime from the face as well as makeup, but the cloths are dry and require water. They can't really be used at work for me.
Another concern is that I can't really get them around my eyes without irritation. These are more like face wash cloths instead of cleansing cloths because you have to wet the cloth, lather, be cautious as you clean, and then you have to go through the hassle of rinsing your face.
I received a sample of these so they weren't a loss for me but I doubt I would just buy these. I prefer to use a makeup remover and a facewash later than to use these and still feel like I need to wash my face.
These aren't great for everyday use either. They don't get down deep like a facial cleanser and I don't feel as clean or satisfied. These are just okay to remove stubborn makeup or tinted moisturizer.
These do remove makeup and dirt but they sting and irritate the skin. They are okay to keep around for stubborn makeup and tinted moisturizers but I wouldn't use them everyday for makeup removal. It does seem to remove excess oil out of the face.
Ease of Application
These are a little tedious to use. It isn't so simple as using and tossing. These require water to lather, a lathering and washing process, and then a rinsing and drying process of the face. I prefer a product I can take out, use, throw away, and not have to worry anything else about it.
This smells alright. It is refreshing and tingling and it smells refreshing.
Pull out very few black heads.
The Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips are supposed to be amazing for pulling out blackheads from clogged pores, as well as built up dirt and oil that is stuck deep down in the skin. They are also supposed to help reduce the appearance of the pores on your nose.
I wish I could say I had a positive experience with this product, and even after giving it many tries over and over again, I can say that this did not work well for me.
If you have never used pore strips the way you are supposed to apply these is by getting your nose wet, peel the plastic off the back of the strip, apply it to your nose, and let it dry for about fifteen minutes.
I found that it was hard to apply it to my nose the right way because it if wet your nose too much or not enough it won't apply the right way. I also found it hard to use because you have to try and keep your nose still otherwise the strip starts to come off. I also found that it takes quite a long time to dry. They say to give it 10 to 15 minutes, but I found that I had to wait almost 20 minutes or even longer.
When I pull the pore strips off of my nose I find it to be quite uncomfortable, because I feel like it pulls more on my skin then my blackheads. I found that the pore strips removed very little blackheads from my nose, didn't remove any dirt or oils, and my pores were still very noticeable, and not only to add to that my nose was very red. I also found that sometimes it pulled on my skin so hard that it caused my nose to peel which was very uncomfortable.
Overall I would not recommend this product to remove blackheads, because it barely removes any at all. I would save my money, and save up on a good blackhead face cleanser.
The only good thing I have to say is that these are decently inexpensive so I didn't really feel too bad that these didn't work.
Also if you have dry or sensitive skin these probably wouldn't be good for you, because they really do pull hard on your skin.
I always saw people have good results with these blackhead strips, so when I tried them out I was really disappointed with the results I had. It barely pulled out any blackheads, maybe a few here and there, but it definitely didn't pull out a whole strip full. Also using these made my nose peel, and feel kind of raw. I would rather squeeze them out instead of using these strips because that is more effective. I literally got 4 blackheads out with these strips. They were a waste of my money.
Ease of Application
These blackhead strips are very inconsistent and sometimes uneasy to use. If you wet your nose too much, or don't wet it enough its really hard to make it stick to your nose without moving it around. If it doesn't stick properly it won't remove enough blackheads which I find is the main problem with this product. It's also hard to remove it from your nose without hurting your skin. I find more times it pulls and damages my skin rather then getting rid of the blackheads, also I find that it leaves a lot of sticky hard adhesive behind, and I have to scrub it off my face.
They don't have much of a scent to them at all, kind of like a faint clean scent to it. Nothing that noticeable.
Don't wear it during the day
My skin was drying out during the day from my new acne regiment so I decided to try Biore Skin Preservation Hard Day's Night Overnight Moisturizer. This moisturizer is extremely heavy and weighed done my face, but it did a great job keeping my face hydrated. I applied a small amount of this moisturizer on my face every night and slowly over time my dry skin started to peel off to reveal new soft skin . It took me two weeks to completely heal my dry skin using this moisturizer. The best thing about this moisturizer is that it didn't cause any new blemishes on my face while fighting acne
when I used it at night. I tried wearing this moisturizer during the day and I had a bad reaction to it. My skin for some reason ended up getting burned, which was odd because I stayed in doors all day. It took me about a week for my skin to bounce back before I felt comfortable using this product at night again. I started applying this moisturizer once again at night and had good results. I continued to use Biore Skin Preservation Hard Day's Night Overnight Moisturizer until my skin got use to my acne regiment. I would definitely recommend this product because it hydrates the skin, but wearing it during the day is a no-no.
They used to work much better
Years ago when I was in my teens, I used these strips all the time. It was super rewarding to pull them off and see all of the nasty stuff you got out of your pores and off your face. It made you feel so much better. My face hasn't changed much. I still have blackheads in the same areas, but these strips just don't work as good as they used to. Your supposed to wet the area on your face just a little then apply the strip and smooth it out. You wait maybe about ten minutes or until it feels dry and you pull it off. If it's too hard to pull off, then just get it wet again and it comes off easily. The good thing is, you can cut the strips to fit your nose or to add a little piece to a different part of your face if you like. I never really thought they had much of a scent, so that wasn't bothersome. When used more recently, they did help a little, but it was nothing compared to the way they used to help. Overall, they are decently priced, easy to use and may be really effective for some people. They just happened to stop working good for me. They are worth a try though.
