I was running low on Biore strips recently and headed out to buy some while shopping, only to find that they were really expensive that weekend. I recalled seeing Neat & Easy Deep Cleansing Nose Strips at Dollarama for $2.50 and thought they would be worth trying.
I get gross blocked pores on my nose. Noticeable blackheads, so I go through a lot of pore strips trying to keep it blackhead free. The Neat & Easy Deep Cleansing Nose Strips package claims to “remove blackheads, oil and dirt” and also “diminish the appearance of large pores.” Worth trying right?
The ten strips are individually packaged. To use, just wet your nose (they should only be used on your nose), remove the strip from the plastic backing and place on nose. The Neat & Easy strips are a bit smaller than Biore Strips but still cover your nose easily. Leave the strip on for 10-15 minutes while it dries and feels stiff. Then, like waxing, rip that sucker off and look at the mess on the strip.
While I realize that some people do not find these as effective as Biore strips, I am in love with them. It hadn’t been that long since my last application of a Biore strip, yet the Neat & Easy strip pulled out quite a bit more than I would usually see. I put this down to the warmer weather and needing more sunscreen, blocking my pores. A second application a few days later found also removed quite a few and already my pores are much less noticeable.
For maximum impact, use after a shower when your pores are open to let these strips work their magic even better. The only bad thing I can think of is that they bunch a little at the edge of the nose and could do with some slits to fit better. You could easily add them yourself if you are quick about it as they start working once the package is opened. They are stickier than Biore too, so be prepared for removal too.
