How to use it
After cleansing, place step-1 on your nose for 15-20minutes. Remove it and wipe off your nose from any impurities that might became visible. Wet your nose with water and place step-2 on nose. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and slowly remove it from the one edge. Place step-3 on your nose and remove it after 10-15 minutes. Gently pat for better absorption.
My thoughts on Holika Holika Pig nose clear blackhead 3-step kit
This is a 3-steps kit and it is simply perfect for pore control. The first step opens your pores which allow for removing blackheads easier. The second step removes blackheads and the third step calms the skin down.
Step one is like a sheet mask for your nose, it is made to soften the pores and to make step two easier. If you are not using a three-step method I really recommend a longer shower before using the strips, simply because it makes the job easier.
Step two is the part that hurts somewhat. Make sure you put it on wet skin or it won’t stick, expect tears when removing this one😊, but hey, sometimes skincare does hurts.
Step three is to calm your skin after the stress of pulling gunk out of your skin and this is really cooling the skin down, making it more relaxed. If you are not using the three-step version I really recommend putting on some aloe vera gel afterwards.
I really like this type of products, I do have a lot of them (pore strips that is) since I always seem to get a sample when I do a purchase. This is one of my favorite versions of the strips, since it includes the step three, which I feel is really nice on my stressed nose.
I don’t have a huge number of pores, I do have dry skin and that is one reason. But I am getting older and pores are changing with age so I do feel the need to use the strips from time to time. I usually use a regular pore extractor tool since I do feel they are easier to use and I really get all the gunk out (this is too not painless). I usually do this after a longer shower which makes the job easier.
This is not a product that will clean your face completely from pores, that is simply impossible. The pores on your face are there for a reason (to produce sebum) and you do need them on your skin, or your face will become a desert. What this product will do is clean out some of the gunk in your pores, but not every single one, so don’t expect that to happen.
I cant really say that this one is more effective than any other strip out there, but I do feel that it is easy to use, and it feels a little bit more luxurious to use the three step method.
I really want to point out that this is nothing you should be doing every single week, you skin will be very sensitive. If you are already experiencing sensitive skin I would be really careful with these types of product and really take it easy when using them. That doesn’t mean that you should use them at all, just be careful not to overdo it.
The best way to keep your pores looking as good as possible is to exfoliate on a regular basis and to use this type of product.
I give this product 5/7
