I haven't used nose strips since I was about 14/15. They never seemed to do anything for me so I didn't really see the point in wasting my money. However I was buying some bits on three for two at Sainsbury's the other week and needed a third item so I picked these up. What caught my eye was the 'New 2x Better' statement on the box. I thought it might be about time I gave nose strips a chance again and see if anything has changed with them over the years.
I'm sure you all know about nose strips but if not the concept is really simple. You simply wet your nose and then place the strip directly onto your skin. Once the strip has dried and hardened, you peel it off again and any dirt from your pores should be stuck to the strip. Although disgusting, it's strangely satisfying.
I was really surprised by these as they actually worked. I did see a difference when using them and it was interesting to see impurities stuck to the strip for a change.
I felt like they worked better when I used them on consecutive days. On day one I didn't really see much on the strip, but by day three it seemed like the dirt had been pulled to the surface and I was starting to see a change.
These might be slightly gimmicky as I know they don't pull out all impurities in my skin but it's nice to get rid of what I can and generally make my skin cleaner and clearer.
I've bought three more boxes of these whilst they are on three for two and definitely recommend you try them out just to see if they work for you. They're the best of the nose strips I've tried so far.
