Hello lovely humans!
I got this online! It’s a blackhead removal pack straight from Korea : Skinmiso Pore Beauty Nose Pack. I got this from an online store called Wishtrend . This nose pack is supposed to be a gentler method of removing blackheads than adhesive pore strips. It is also a 3 step system: remove sebum, tighten pores, and moisturize+prevent.
Continue reading to find out details about the 3 step process, and for links to their channel/ store!
Important note: If you feel a tingling sensation during the use of the strips, shorten the amount of time that you leave it on for.
Step 1: Remove Sebum
Step 1 is a pouch containing a (candy cane scented- yum!) pore strip that you place and tap onto your nose. The formula in this pouch opens up your pores and lifts up the sebum. During the 10 minutes that you leave this on for, it leaves you with a cooling sensation.
After those 10 minutes, lift off the strip and use a blackhead removal tool (comedone removal tool) to gently remove the sebum. If you don’t have one, you can use a coloured cotton swab, but the tool is recommended for deeper cleaning.
Step 2: Tighten Pores
Open the blue pouch now, and place the strip on your nose for 10 minutes. This strip is soaked in an essence of gel-like consistency. Unlike the 1st one, this one has a warming sensation. So don’t leave it on for too long because it may get uncomfortable! If you properly completed Step 1, you will actually see tighter pores in Step 2! It was actually amazing! If you didn’t properly remove sebum, then you will notice more raising up in this second step.
After the 10 minutes are up, remove the strip and tap the remaining essence into your skin until dry.
Step 3: Moisturize and Prevent
Apply the ‘Pore Essence’ onto your nose and the surrounding cheek areas to moisturize and prevent more whiteheads/blackheads from forming.
I love the sleek and minimalistic packaging! I love how they packed so much product into one little box. ❤
Price: $10 USD
This product is currently on sale for $10 USD + Shipping. When I got this, I believe I got it for $15CAD+Free Shipping. Regardless, both are great prices!
Overall: 4.5/ 5
If you use this only once a week or every other week, then this works really well. It doesn’t strip your skin of moisture nor does it stretch your skin. Only qualm I have with it is that I have to buy a separate blackhead removal tool. Nonetheless, I don’t think I’ll turn back to the regular adhesive pore strips-mostly because of the pore tightening pack and essence!
As promised ~
