Hi lovelies, today’s post will be a review on the Biore Pore strips, so let’s get into it!
I’ve always thought that pore strips were a gimmick; it claims to clear out your blackheads, but does it really work?
Finally, I decided to give in and try them. I was super skeptical about this working, but the results were really surprising.
oily, acne-prone, and sensitive.
WHAT IT CLAIMS TO DO:
These pore strips have witch hazel and tea tree oil, which are supposed to be beneficial ingredients for the skin. In addition to that, the product claims to work like a “super-magnet” to remove dirt and oil for a deep clean.
Polyquaternium-37, Silica, Water, Glycerin, Polysilicone-13,PEG-12 Dimethicone, Titanium Dioxide, Butylene Glycol, Methylparaben,Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Menthol, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract
HOW TO USE:
After wetting your skin, you apply this to the center of your face. I could smell some of the witch hazel/tea tree oil on the strip, so if you hate those scents, then this may not be for you. However, the scent disappears quickly as the strip dries.
Make sure you don’t leave it on for too long because it’ll harden and become difficult to remove. If this happens, you can wet the strip but this may lessen the effectiveness of it.
Lastly, pull it off very slowly! The slower you pull on the strip, the more it’ll be able to grab as you remove it. After I completely take it off, I like to rinse my face with cool water and then I’ll move onto the rest of my skincare routine.
I had previously tried a Daiso pore strip that did nothing for me, but my first use with the Biore pore strips was YouTube worthy (we all know about “that one corner of YouTube,” haha).
So much came out of my pores and the center of my face looked cleaner and brighter afterwards. I didn’t feel the need to use another pore strip for about another 2 weeks. After using it every other week for about 3 months, I can say that I really like these!
I’m aware that you can’t get rid of the sebum and blackheads in your pores permanently since some of it is needed and your pores will continue to be “clogged” unless you really take care of your skin or get professional treatments. But I think it’s good for a quick fix and I think it’s worth a try.
I’ve also been testing out an extraction tool in between using the pore strips, so that’s been helping too!
Overall, I realized that this is not a gimmicky product and I would recommend looking into it if you struggle with having really clogged blackheads. They’re not too expensive and I think the results are nice!
So that’s it for this review! I hope you found it helpful; what do you like to do to manage blackheads? Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you lovelies soon!
