quick review: The Face Shop Black Head EX Pore Strip

This is a quick review of The Face Shop Black Head EX Charcoal Pore Strip!
(Whew! What a long name!)

I totally don't remember how much this was...

Anyway, you use it just like any other pore strip.
Wet your nose, slap it on, and peel it off when it dries!

Warning: Disgusting gunk out from K's nose ahead!


This works pretty well!
I think it works better than Biore's pore strips!
The down side is that it smells like charcoal!

Some people have told me that pore strips don't work for them.
Here are some tips!

1. Make sure your pores are REALLY open. A quick way to do this is to microwave a damp towel for 20 seconds and put it on your nose for at least 1 minute!

2. Make sure your nose is damp. Not wet, not dry! The moisture helps the stuff on the pore strip get into your pores! But if your nose is too wet, it will melt the stuff off!

3. Keep the pore strip on until it dries completely!

4. Peel it off from the bottom!

5. Don't use pore strips if you've got pimples/cuts/any kind of skin damage on your nose!

Hope this helps!!!

xoxo, K
