We all read product reviews and have images in our heads; that they're going to be amazing and literally solve all of life's problems. I'd been meaning to buy this product for ages, after reading near enough 50 reviews and watching Youtube videos of people using it, I was expecting amazing things! Sadly this wasn't the case.
I'll start by saying this isn't a product for someone who's grossed out by seeing the dirt from your pores literally peel of your face, or for someone who doesn't really have the patience to wait around whilst the strip dries on your face. This isn't something that bothers me at all as I do find it quite satisfying to pop a spot, or to use products like this where you can actually see they're working (or not in this products case). I originally selected the ultra deep cleansing pore strips by Biore because of all the amazing reviews I'd read online, claiming they do wonders for pores and blackheads. They are simple to use and the concept is good. I've actually used all 6 of the strips because I really wanted them to work for me, but no matter how I used them they did unclog some of my pores but from the evidence on the strips it was far from satisfying.
The packet contains 6 of these strips and you simply wet your nose and checks, then with dry clean hands you place the stripe across your nose and press it down. The water reacts with the solution that's on the back of the strip to unclog pores and give your face a deep clean. After the time is up, you simply gently lift the strip off your face and you're done. After this the results should be on the strip shall we say.
The concept of this product is great, you simply put it on your face and wait, there isn't any messing around with applying different products and I didn't have any negative reactions from it. The packing is quite appealing with the silver detailing but the price is slightly high for this product in my opinion. They do retail for £7.99 in most shops, so they are quite expensive for something that is very hit and miss for me personally. I have tried wetting my face a lot and I've even tried steaming my face first, which for me actually proved to be the most effective but it was still nowhere near as good as the results I was hoping for, or the results I'd seen on Youtube and other blogs. Because of all the reviews I've seen of this product I possibly would consider buying other products from this brand in the future, but I'll possibly avoid wasting £8 on these pore strips.
If you've used any product on the same lines as these and they've worked for you please leave me a comment down below so I can give some of them a go! Thank you for reading.
