Review: Glamworks Nose Pore Strip

If you constantly read my blog posts, you know that one of my major skin problems is my blackheads. I’ve got large pores with deep-seated blackheads hence making me feel conscious when I notice that someone close to me is staring at my face. With this, I’m constantly searching for the most effective facial wash, toner and other products that can help me solve my skin issue.

I tried a lot of products including blackhead removal strips. I used Etude House Blackhead Remover Dual Sheet but I didn’t find it effective. I felt like I wasted my money on it. That experience made me wary about blackhead removal strips but being a hopeful and persistent that I am, I decided to give this a go. Anyway, I read a couple of good reviews about this so I felt that somehow this would work on me as well.

Glamworks Nose Pore Strip comes in a yellow box with 12 pieces of individually-wrapped nose strips. The wrapper is nothing fancy of some sort. It’s just plain foil wrapper with product label and instruction in black text. The shiny side of the strip (the side that is stuck to the skin) is protected by a plastic liner. The other side (the wrong side if you’re a seamstress) has cottony texture.

Product Description:
Glamworks Nose Pore Strips instantly removes pore-clogging dirt, oil and blackheads. It helps reduce the appearance of pores with regular use.


What I like about this product:
This product is so cheap! For Php 99, you will get 12 strips, good for 6 weeks when used twice a week. I like this product not only because it’s cheap, but it works too. The strip may not have removed every blackhead I have, but seeing the strip after I peel it off my skin makes me really happy because it removed a considerable amount of blackheads and whiteheads (WARNING: Yucky picture below.) I believe that regular use will indeed help alleviate my skin problem hence giving me a little confidence boost. :D

I expected that peeling the strip off my skin is painful but to my surprise, it didn’t cause me even the slightest pain. I think as long as you follow the direction on how to use the product properly, you will never go wrong with this product. And it isn’t that hard to use at all!

I can’t wait how it will affect my skin with long-term use.

What I do not like about this product:
I do not like this product’s smell. It can’t decide whether it smells like rubber or paper. LOL! But for me, it’s nothing I cannot tolerate because the smell seems to fade as the time goes by. After all, the strip has to stay on the skin for only 10 – 15 minutes so it’s really tolerable.

Will I repurchase?
Definitely! But I also want to try the one from Watson’s (brand).

If you have time, try to steam your face for a few minutes to open your pores and give the strip easy access to deep-seated blackheads.
