I've never tried nose pore strips before so when I decided to give it a go, I went with Holika Holika Pig-nose clear 3-Step kit because I'd seen a lot of on YouTube.
I have a couple of large pores on my nose and use quite a few products to minimise them so I wasn't expecting a great deal from the kit.
The first step is to prep your pores for the extraction. You keep the strip on for 15 - 20 minutes. It felt like an intense tingling sensation and when I removed it, it really did seem to draw out the sebaceous filaments.
Next you apply the nose strip to wet skin. This will dry in 10 - 15 mins and it is then ready to remove. This was the step I was expecting to sting HOWEVER it didn't hurt whatsoever. I'd say the first step was more uncomfortable. The strip itself removed a few whiteheads and sebaceous filaments but no blackheads.
The last step is to close pores back up and soothe the skin.
Overall, I'm really happy with the result and I'll be repurchasing. Although it didn't remove EVERY blocked pore, it was definitely an improvement and my nose felt so much smoother. This is a treatment I'll do every 3 - 4 weeks as I exfoliate and use pore masks throughout the week, this is more of a deep treatment.
