For those of you with sensitive skin this is the best nose strip pack for you! As someone who cannot tolerate the irritation/burning/redness from regular pore strips I fell in love with this!
The three step application could not be easier to follow. After applying and later removing the first wet strip I just knew it was a miracle product. This strip alone somehow manage to pull out/raise all the gunk from my pores (it could almost just be wiped away). I think it's this step which makes the second regular pore strip so much more gentle on the skin. Since the gunk has already been lifted it's not as harsh on the skin when removing it from the nose.
The final gel-like strip is super soothing and hydrating. Though I was red after removing the second step pore strip, the application of step three really made a huge difference in soothing the area and the length of the redness. After removing it I just massaged the remaining product in. I left this on overnight and woke up with it super moisturized (I just rinsed the nose area in the morning to remove any remaining product).
This is by far the best experience I've ever had with a pore strip! Will definitely be purchasing again.
Did I mention it smells incredible?! Like a lip-smacker from my childhood :)
The Tony Moly Strawberry Nose Pack is a 3-step pore cleansing system for the nose. The packaging is absolutely adorable, which is standard for most Korean products, and the three strips inside smell like strawberries and candy. Yum! There are pictures on the package, as well as instructions in both Korean and English.
The first step is to apply strip one, which is a very moist, soaked-through strip. It's not sticky, but more like it's been drenched in some sort of water. You leave this on your nose for about 20 minutes, during which time your nose may begin to tingle (mine did). This is supposed to open up the pores and ready them for the next step.
The second step is your typical pore strip. You place this onto your wet nose and wait for it to dry enough to pull off. Pretty basic stuff.
The final step involves the third strip, which is like a little mask for your nose. It's slimy, like a sheet mask, and it's supposed to close your pores up again. It says to leave on for about 10 minutes, but it feels pretty nice, so you can leave it on longer if you'd like.
I certainly found this to be more effective at cleaning the gunk out of my pores than something like a Biore strip. The whole thing feels much more soothing as well. After you remove the nose mask, it does feel rather sticky, which is the only downside that I found, but if you mix in a bit of water and rub the excess in, it's not so bad.
I would recommend this if you're prone to any sort of blackheads on your nose and you find that most pore strips are too harsh or don't seem to do anything for you.
