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 pore strips were good, but I didn't notice any difference between these and the basic white ones. They do get some tough black heads out, but it doesn't eliminate them completely. These were easy to use and not painful at all. I would purchase again.

I wanted to give this product 3.5 stars but anyway, I do like these nose strips they get the job done effectively but sometimes if you don't wet them properly it won't work as well as it could so there are some user errors that could occur.

I LOVE biore strips. I have fairly deep pores on my nose, specifically, and it is hard to keep them clean and clear. Every time I wash my hair (once every 2-3 days or so), I use a strip on my nose. I'm continually amazed at what these strips can pull out of my nose!

I love the idea behind these strips, but they can be a bit hard to work with. The strips apply easily, but the removal is quite painful, and I don’t always see very much coming out of my pores onto the strip. This product is sort of a hit or miss at different times that I’ve used it.

They do clean out most of your pores and your nose will feel so smooth and clean afterwards. I feel as if the charcoal feel off masks would work a little better but the pore strips do their job and are so easy to prepare and to put on.

These make my nose pores look so much smaller right after I get done with the strip. They don't work as well as I wanted them to because they don't get everything out of my pores. However I still think they are worth it at their price point.

The only reason I give this a two stars because maybe for my skin type it didn't grasp onto the blackhead well. I really wanted to love this product but sadly I couldn't. On the other hand, it did work on my boyfriend so that's the plus side!

These strips work pretty well. I would use them again. They are super sticky and not fun to rip off your face, at least they get all the little gunk out. Most of the other products like this don't work that well. Especially because these are charcoal they really get down in your pores.

Great pore strips. You can really feel the difference from when you apply them. My skin always feel really refreshed after using them and the don't smell too bad either! As a once a week treatment I love to use them and see the subtle differences.
Deep Cleansing Pore Strips is the gimmicky product that put Biore on the map several years ago. The concept remains the same as when these first hit the beauty scene: you place a piece of cloth with an incredibly sticky substance on it over your nose or elsewhere on the face, as you might do with a Band-Aid, wait 15 minutes for it to dry, and then pull it off. Along with some amount of skin, blackheads are supposed to stick to it and come right out of the pore. The main ingredient on the strips is polyquaternium-37, a film-forming, hairspray type ingredient—so it’s basically a piece of gauze with a form of hairspray on it. You may at first be impressed with what comes off your nose. (Well, there is no question: you will be impressed.) Most people do have some oil sitting at the top of their oil glands, and most of the face’s oil glands are located on the nose. So whether you use these strips or a piece of tape, black dots and some skin will be removed

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