My daughter gave me one of these strips about 3 years ago and I loved it. My nose blackheads were so bad I looked like a strawberry. When I pulled it off it looked like hundreds of trees growing from it, so bad. I used one a month later and to this time I have no blackheads at all. I still use once in a while but there is never much on there is anything at all. I have heard people say they come back but mine never have.
The nose strips I purchased from Biore years ago used to be excellent and I'd get out a forest of pores, so I tried one nose strip and it only took out two pores. I don't know if Biore makes different kinds or if its just that the quality of Biore strips went downhill.
