Not the most glamorous of subjects, but let’s talk blackheads for a minute (or in the dermatology world, known as “comedones”). A cleansing regimen may involve a scrub or an astringent followed by moisturizer, and sometimes an occasional squeeze, but sometimes that just doesn’t cut it. Luckily, Biore’s Deep Cleansing Pore Strips $8.99, are here to remove the deepest dirt, that actually clogs pores and causes blackheads.
Disgusting, perhaps, but I’ll have to agree with Biore that it’s “oddly satisfying.” Plus, the process was rather simple. Testing these out, courtesy of the brand, I first washed my face clean. Then, I applied the strip to my nose, with my face still wet (the strip is not made to stick on a dry nose.) After ensuring good contact, I let it dry for about 10-15 minutes, until the strip felt “stiff to the touch.” In fact, I barely noticed it was on my face!
Slowly, (I recommend being careful here) I removed the strip from the edges pulling toward the center. Seeing the week’s worth of dirt buildup in just 10-15 minutes made me wish more things could be accomplished this quickly: a week’s worth of laundry, a week’s worth of emails…the list continues.
P.S.: Biore also has other new products, such as the Steam Activate Cleanser, Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser, and a Pore Unclogging Scrub, and an overall new design/look!
