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

Product worked well for my skin. I did not notice any new breakouts or rashes or anything like that. Did not irritate my skin at all. Overall happy with the product, but I would prefer something gentler. I would recommend to others, I have dry skin type so I don't know how it would work with other skin types.

Though it wasn't pleasant to take off, it did exactly as I expected and was much easier and less messy to use than a liquid formula that you apply by hand.

these i think would work better if you have a lot of time on your hands because i didn’t them quite hastily and i think i should’ve taken my time more but the parts that were dry definitely cleared out my pores.

it was an okay black head mask! it didnt work the best, it cleaned out some of my pores but ended up leaving most of it behind while also leaving black residue around my nose. not to mention it’s expensive for a drugstore brand. not worth the money would not buy again

Exact same as the other ones. Didn’t hurt to take off. Great packaging and easy to apply.

These are great! I have had very good luck with these, as well as the regular Biore strips. I'm not sure if the charcoal kind actually pulls anything extra out, but they're a bit more satisfying because you can see everything that was removed really nicely. I've tried a number of different brands, but Biore always yields the most consistent results. A lot of people complain about pore strips not working on them. In my experience, they work best right after a mask (a mud mask or a glycolic acid mask). The mask pulls everything a bit closer to the surface, and the strip yanks it all out before the pores close back up. Also, make sure your nose is very, very wet when you apply the strip. Like dripping. Dab the drips away with a washcloth and apply asap. In addition, make sure the strip is totally dry before pulling it off (should feel very stiff), which may take longer than the time in the instructions.

Love the poor strips! Got all my blackheads! Kind of painful but very effective in its job! Would recommend and use over and over again

It works for a temporary fix, but I wouldn't but these thinking it's gonna rid your pores. After a few mins, I noticed not all were gone and it kind of my the pores bigger. Like I said, if you need the most, of big pores off your face overnight, I guess this will do. Otherwise, maybe spend your money on a different product.

These definitely do something, but they do not work quite as well as the original pore strips. These leave a lot behind and really don't make a big enough difference for me to ever purchases again. I recommend the normal ones rather than these.

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