Remove weeks (yes- weeks!) worth of pore gunk with just one strip. With natural charcoal, pore strips suck out deep-down dirt, oil and blackheads, leaving skin feeling fresh, clean and 3x less oily.

  • With Natural Charcoal, known for its ability to draw out and trap deep-down impurities

How to Use:

  • Remove strip from pouch. Twist strip to loosen and separate slits prior to use (see illustration)
  • After washing your face, thoroughly wet your nose. The strip won’t stick on a dry nose
  • Dry hands. Peel strip off plastic liner. Apply to nose area, smooth side down, pressing down to ensure good contact with skin
  • Let dry for about 10-15 minutes until stiff to the touch — like papier-mâché
  • Slowly and carefully peel off starting at edges, pulling toward center. Any residue left on skin is easily removed with rinsing


  • Use only on the nose
  • Avoid using on acne blemishes or swollen, sunburned, excessively dry skin, or skin prone to spider veins
  • Consult a physician before using on skin being treated with prescription acne medication
  • Avoid using on skin which is sensitive to bandages or peel-off face masks
  • Remove strip as directed promptly after it becomes stiff. If strip is difficult or painful to remove, wet strip thoroughly until it slides off easily. Forceful removal of the strip should be avoided and may cause skin abrasions. If this occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician
  • Do not use more often than once every three days

How it Works:

  • Uses a blend of C-bond technology to remove the dirt and oil that causes blackheads
  • With purifying charcoal powder, the strip acts like a sponge to draw out and absorb excess dirt and oil, reducing shine
  • Keeps oil at bay for 24 hours

Heres the best directions no one tells you lol 1) use right after the shower when pores are open 2) put just a little bit of water all over your nose not soaking but wet like you just came in from a rain storm 3) put it on for 10 mins top until you feel it harden like a cast 4) start peeling from ONE side only pull up to the ceiling away from your skin and do it slowlyyyyyyy for example say youre doing your right nostril you want to pull it up to the ceiling and bend it towards the left nostril (kind of the same way you'd wax your eyebrows it needs to be up and to opposite side) and again SLOW its annoying and hurts but it takes them all out this way. It is not fast like waxing but should take 2 minutes to take off.This is not a rip off fast product. If you have alot of black heads you'll need to do it twice (second time the following day). Make sure to microdermabrasion or good scrub before hand and follow up with witchhazel or any other natural toner . Your white or black heads should not be very thick or long if so it means you’re not properly cleansing and toning . My pores have shrunk with this advice Good luck!

This was one of the first charcoal products I ever used and at first I was a bit skeptical because I wasn’t sure if it would actually be like those trending videos of people getting new skin just by putting on charcoal masks. But I was actually pretty scared to put all that charcoal on my face after seeing how painful it was to take off so I wanted to try something smaller and less risky. So I paid about $5 at Walmart for these charcoal pore strips and honestly I was impressed because after using this I could tell that my pores were a lot cleaner, the skin on my nose was a lot brighter and smoother, and the best part was that it didn’t hurt at all even with a few little hairs being pulled out! I definitely recommend this to anyone who has medium-big pores that tend to get clogged because it cleans so well. But be careful if you have sensitive or dry skin because even though it left my skin smooth, I did get a little bit of dryness and flaking afterwards but moisturizer solved that problem!

I so badly wanted to like this product:/ Idk why it is so satisfying to extract blackheads but I love it when I'm able to pull an impurity out of my skin easily without the blood or tears that usually accompany extracting an inflammatory pimple. After watching videos and reading reviews I thought these pore strips would do just that but in a more efficient way than me squeezing my nose with all my strength. Unfortunately, despite prepping my skin for the pore strip I got pretty much nothing on the strip despite the clogged pores  I had on the sides of my nose. Also these are painful dude! They pull off any peach fuzz you may have too so if you have a low pain threshold and small pores I'd stay away from these!!

This product is okay. I would not use it on a regular basis because I would have to use it more than once in one day. And to me that is considered a product fail if the directions do not call for that. When you put the strips on you have to be very careful about the placement. The first time I use this product I just started in the middle of my nose and then push the side wings down over my nostrils and that left an air bubble or Gap on the sides of my nose and they did not receive treatment from the strip. Super fail. So when I took the strip off the very edges of my nose in the very middle were treated but not the actual dips. So my face was still about 25% oily. It did not hurt to take it off and you could clearly see where even after I had washed my face it still pulled more gunk out of my nose so I was proud of that. But not even an hour after using this trip my nose was completely oily again. I will say that I usually have combination skin and don't have to deal with these types of issues but since I am pregnant my face has been extremely oily so this may work for someone who has had consistently oily skin better than it works for me.

These strips are great! I had so many little black heads on the tip of nose and I used to stress about them all the time until I found these. These strips do exactly what they say they will, they will take any blackheads that aren't down too deep right out of your nose. To get to those blackheads that have not yet surfaced I suggest using a pore cleansing mask first, that will usually pull them to the surface to be reached by the pore strips. IF you are skeptical about trying these,go and purchase yourself a box asap!

I have dry skin but suffer from blackheads on my nose, so I thought this was perfect! The strips are larger than other varieties and pulling it off was pretty easy. I have gone through multiple boxes and sometimes there is residue left after pulling the strip off. It definitely works though. It is important that you press the strip into the skin really well and let it dry for around 15 minutes for best results. I never had a problem with oil skin, so I cannot speak to that affect. It didn't increase my dry skin at all, but I always moisturize afterwards.

I love pore strips in general. I'm always shocked at what's mhmm on the strip 🙀the addition of charcoal definitely makes a difference with these Biorè pore strips. The only reason I'm not giving five stars is because I feel like they are pricey for the amount they come with, and the strip did leave some black residue (which of course I washed). I also wish that Biore would make a variety pack of strips that work for chin, between brow area, upper cheek etc. basically the t-zone that may be prone to clogged pores.

The biore nose strips work like a dream. If you would have asked me before i used one if i had black/white heads, i would have told you no. But after wanting to try it out and going through the instructions on the box, i peeled off the strip and to my surprise it was full of black and white heads. The strip did exactly what it said it was going to do and i reccomend everyone try it even if the don’t think they have black or white heads!  Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips

I have used several different deep cleaning scrubs and even other types of pore strips in the past, but the Biore deep cleansing charcoal pore strips are the best. Very easy to use. The instructions are very clear and does the job well! You can easily see all the black heads after you pull the strip off. It also takes many more out than regular pore strips. I would definitely recommend this product. I will buy over and over again. Leaves you’re nose 5x smoother than any other pore strips I’ve used.

This product does exactly what it states: removes excess oil and blackheads from your nose. It’s as simple as that! I have really sensitive skin too and I saw no issues while using these strips. A few tips: wet your face before applying the strip and use warm water. I’m not sure of the science behind it but the warm water worked better. I purchased them from Walmart and I thought the price and the amount of strips you receive was fair. Overall I enjoyed these and will definitely repurchase.

Do these actually work? I feel like pore strips usually don't help me to get out blackheads. Is this more exceptional than others?
