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

These are the best for getting rid or blackheads! Nothing else works like them. I have 3 boxes in my beauty room right now! I've recommended them to everyone I know. I just get them from Walmart but I'm sure any drug store would carry them. I don't think I'll find anything that works as well.

Sometimes you just need a quick pick me up without the hassle of using a full face mask. This is why I purchased these pore strips. It's easy enough to apply. You dampen the nose and surrounding area and apply it. It hardens the longer you leave it on. It's potent to the point of it hurting as I pulled it off, but unfortunately it didn't remove all of my blackheads. I'll still have to shop around for other products.

This is the best product on the entire planet. I have very dry and irritable skin around my T zone and most products will upset my skin and cause my skin to be even dry, this product however did neither. It worked very well, better than any other product that I have tried and trust me I have tried a lot of products, and it isn't painful and it doesn't irritate the skin. I 10/10 recommend this product to everyone!

Thus product gives some incredibly satisfying g results. It does sting to take off lie most pore strips, but it is so worth it to see all of the blackheads pulled out of your skin. I use it on my nose and sometimes my chin, where I get a bunch of blackheads. I just do it after taking off my makeup but before cleansing. Cleansing after, with all the pores open, let's you get in a lot deeper. Overall, a great product.

On my nose I had minor black heads and white heads. This helped so much for me! I do have to say a friend of mine tried it and it didn't work as well for him, im guessing because he had more then I had on my nose. All is all a pretty decent product for the price!
Also application is a BIG THING u apply it wrong adding to much water, you will ruin the strip and have to use another one! So yesss read instructions!!!

While on vacation my family chose to have a spa night and we picked these up at the drugstore. We all used one, even my younger sister, and every person had such great results. Out of 13 people, no bad reaction, no failed attempt!! Everyone was so impressed at how these pore strips cleared out the junk in our pores! This is a great product that I would highly recommend for anyone looking to clear clogged pores!

Charcoal drugstore strips may sound like a steal, but regardless of the price this is a pure gimmick. Biore strips have always been okay, but not great, but these charcoal ones for a few dollars more do the exact same thing as the originals. I tested it out and both have the same results, except the charcoal makes the nose a little grey. So save the two dollars and buy the white strips. I would not repurchase.

I've used these pore strips several times and every time I remove them, I'm left slightly disappointed. Yes the product does work, but I expect it to work even more than it does. It does indeed remove my blackheads and dig the dirt out of my pores but not as much as I would like it too. I still have blackheads when I remove the strip but, this is the best pore strip i have used so I will continue to purchase it.

Biore pore strips are my typical go to so I wanted to try the charcoal strips when I saw them. After purchasing and trying them out, I was not pleased. They took much longer than the normal time to harden, became very messy and left a large majority of black residue on my face and even my fingers after applying. Also, I did not think that they were nearly as effective or worth what they cost as other pore strips I have tried.

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