Bioré Original Deep Cleansing Pore Strips Review

So recently I've been struggling like mad with the amount of blackheads and visible pores on my skin, and so I decided to give these Bioré Original Deep Cleansing Pore Strips a try...

The application of the strips is wonderfully simple and the instructions provided are very straightforward; I don't know about you, but sometimes the instructions provided for certain products are dreadfully over-simple, but luckily this wasn't the case for these. When applied, the strips felt very cooling and had a slight tingling sensation, making me feel like the aftermath would freshen up my face and leave it radiant.

After the instructed 10-15 minutes left on the face, I found the removal quite uncomfortable. I wouldn't say it was painful exactly... more like slightly uncomfortable; it reminded me of having to rip off a very adhesive plaster. Another odd thing about these was the fact that afterwards my nose totally felt as if I'd had some sort of a nose-lift! The skin on my nose felt incredibly stretched to the point where it was a little uncomfortable. It did, however, die down after a while and returned to feeling normal.

My overall opinion? I wasn't too impressed. Perhaps I have to wait and use all of the strips in the pack to notice a real difference on my skin (however it does advise to not use them more than once within in three day time period), however with just one use, only a couple of my blackheads were completely removed, and I still a lot that were not pulled out by the strips. Also, when I removed them from my face, not only did my skin feel tight and uncomfortable, but also there was some left over adhesive that transferred onto my face, which I had to pick off (ew!)

I reckon I'll probably use up the pack of strips that I have currently, and see if multiple uses make more of a difference, however I don't think I will repurchase these again. If you'd like to see an 'Update' post about my experience with these strips, then please let me down in the comments section.

Also I'd love to hear any of your recommendations when it comes to blackhead removing and/or pore minimising products - please leave them in the comments below too!
