The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Ash Nose Strip: Stubborn blackheads are my constant companion for long. I have tried every common home remedy to prevent them but with no satisfactory results so far. The only way out for me is to remove my blackheads at regular intervals. I generally use a properly sanitized blackhead remover tool for my monthly blackhead removing routine but it is not possible for me to sanitize my blackhead tool when I am traveling. That is why I am trying out nose pore strips. Today I will be reviewing The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Volcanic Ash Nose Strip. This pore strip is a new launch in the Indian market and is quite affordable too. Let’s read on to know how this strip worked for me.
Price- Rs.50 for 1 Strip & Rs.300 for 7 Strips
My Experience with The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Volcanic Ash Nose Strip
Packaging- This pore strip comes in a matte grey plastic sachet. This is a one-time use product so once the seal of the sachet is broken, it is not possible to reseal. The pack is very compact and easy to carry. It is quite travel-friendly too. The packaging does not have any eye-candy label graphics to lure you. The usage directions are depicted in the back of the pack along with complete ingredient list written in English and Korean.
Colour & Texture- Inside the sachet, the nose strip is kept sterilized. The pose strip is basically a specially shaped flap of cotton, one side of which has some glue-like material. The strip is gummed to a square-shaped transparent cellophane.
Fragrance- The nose strip has a unique sweet smell to it. The smell reminds me of The Face Shop sheet masks.
Experience- This was my first time with pore strips so I was a bit scared. The pictorial user guide helped a lot to understand what to do. I first washed my face and exfoliated the nose area. Then I put the strip in the nose region. Size of the strip was enough to cover my entire nose area but it was difficult to place the strip to the tip of my nose and the corners of the nose. I kept the strip for 15 minutes and then gently pulled it off. The removal process was painful no doubt but the pain was comparatively less than blackhead tools. The strip could take out the majority of the blackheads but the smaller ones were still there. Other than slight redness in the nose area, my skin showed no adverse reaction. I really enjoyed using this and I am totally in for another session with nose pore strips!
