I wanted to kind a reasonably priced pore-strip for my nose, and I ran into this. I thought it was a great deal because it was a decent price and it included strips for different parts of the face (Nose, forehead, chin, etc.). I think it does a good job at removing junk deep in my pores, and my face does feel smoother in the places than I use it. However, it does leave a sticky residue behind that you have to remove yourself. Also, you HAVE to be around a water source, otherwise the pads won't stick. But otherwise, I'm very pleased.
