Background and Information

I picked up this product for £1.19 at Bodycare. I was not sent this sample in return for a review, nor am I being paid or sponsored for this review. This review is my honest opinion. I picked up this pack of six nose pore strips as I have had previous positive experiences with this brand and their activated charcoal clay mask, which I have also reviewed.

Since high school, I've never had to deal with problem skin. I only tend to get the odd monthly break out (due to hormones), and even then, they tend to appear around the hairline and forehead, which means I can cover them with my fringe if I have to.

I do, however, suffer from oily skin (especially around my forehead), and I have always been a little bit self-conscious about the blackheads that I get in the creases around my nose and my chin. This problem has gotten worse as summer has started, the outside temperatures have soared, and I have been spending hours per day out in the sun. I bought this product with the primary intention of reducing the appearance of blackheads on my nose and achieving a more even complexion.

It is important to know that I do not have a regular facial skin routine, other than the use of a mild cleanser before bed that I use to remove oils that have built-up throughout the day. I also do not wear makeup daily, and when I do, I primarily use concealer, powder, and eye makeup (mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow). I do not wear foundation, bronzer or any other face makeup.

How I Use This Product

I use this product according to the instructions as shown in the image below.

I use a facecloth to wet my nose and the surrounding areas, making sure to get the creases around my nostrils too. I then open the individual sachets and peel the nose pore strip away from the plastic backing. One side is white and textured, the other is black and smooth, I apply the smooth side down. I use my fingers to make sure that the nose pore strip gets into the creases around my nostrils and is firmly adhered.

I leave the product for 15 minutes until it is stiff and then, starting at the bottom-right edge, I slowly peel off the strip. If there is any residue I use a facecloth to give my nose and surrounding skin a gentle wipe down.

This product is very quick to use, the entire experience is over in 20 minutes, so I use it while I'm eating or having a cup of tea.

The removal process is completely painless and over in a second, there is no discomfort or skin irritation after using the product. I have very sensitive skin and can react to products but I did not react to this product or even suffer any redness.

Looking at what comes off onto the strip is very satisfying and it is always more than I think it's going to be!

After using this product my nose is always so soft, and continues to stay smooth until I use the product again the following week. The nose strips have very much reduced the appearance of blackheads around the creases by my nostrils and have given me such an even complexion on the bridge of my nose. I can even see my very few freckles peeking through so much more clearly.

Important Points to Note

This package contains six strips, I use a strip once per week, this means that I can get six weeks use out of ine box. This is excellent value for money, and I have never seen as high quality a product for a cheaper price.

The packaging does not state if this product is cruelty-free, or whether it is suitable for use by vegetarians/vegans. If these are issues that are important to you, I would recommend doing some research and perhaps contacting the brand to confirm their stance before buying.


Beauty Formulas Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Nose Pore Strips do exactly what it says on the tin and are so quick and painless to use. I have seen visible results, and for this price point, you really can't do much better than that.

I would definitely recommend this product for weekly use, and adopt it as part of your skincare routine, especially if the nose is a problem area for you!
