Product Review: Biore Mandarin-Blossom Nose Strips

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Name: Mandarin-Blossom Nose Strips
Approx. Price: $ CAD

I've heard so many reports about these pore strips being bad for the skin, but ever since they came out years ago, I've been using them. I only use them once every 2 weeks or so, but they make such a difference to my pores.

I've always used Biore strips (and did notice when they decreased the stickiness from the original strips after all the hub-bub about the damage these things did). So when I was sent a few samples of the Limited Edition Mandarin-Blossom nose strips, I was keen to try them out.

To Purr About:
- lovely citrus scent that was obvious as soon as I opened the package, but it wasn't overpowering
- the scent was really nice to breathe in while I was using the nose strip - it was pretty faint, but just enough to make things pleasant
- the nose strips work just as well as the regular products, which I'm usually happy with

Claws Out:
- as with other Limited Edition products, I dislike getting hooked on any product that won't be available for sale after a small amount of time
- these strips (as with the regular ones) shouldn't be used too often - I use mine once a week, at most

Final Comments:
I love my Biore nose strips and have never really had a complaint about them. They work great for me and really help clean out my pores (I have slightly enlarged pores). I really like the citrus-scent - it's not necessary, but makes the whole process nice and pleasant. This product would have gotten a perfect score if it wasn't only available in Limited Edition!

Rating (out of 5):

That is so odd that they would come out with a Limited Edition nose strip. I mean - is that sort of thing really necessary? Why didn't they just make the switch all-together? I guess its just a marketing ploy to remind the public that they're still out there.

Great review. I'm intrigued now. Where did you get you these samples from? I would love to give them a try and compare them to the regular Biore stripes that I have.

I've tried them and I was wary at first because I have sensitive skin and didn't want the fragrance to irritate it. They work fine, but I prefer the regular strips, as I use them quite often...probably too often.

Hi tonkabeane!

Unfortunately, I got my samples from a PR company, but I know a few readers have also tried these strips - perhaps they can share where they purchased their strips?
