I remember when the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips first came out. It had the commercial with the model ripping one of the strips off of her nose and then wrinkling it in disgust and saying “Ewwwwww!” as she saw the gunk that was formerly in her nose appear on the strip.
A neat idea, actually.
I admit to being someone who really hates blackheads. I seem to be very prone to them, even though I do my darndest to keep them at bay.
I have in the past used the Biore strips and indeed copied almost the exact expression of the actress in the commercial.
But for some reason, I stopped using them. Not because they didn’t work, they worked quite well.
However, I think it just got really depressing that no matter how often I used the strips, probably once or twice a week, nothing was getting better. It became a Sisyphean task that was quite draining on my wallet, as those suckers are not all that cheap.
I am also prone to broken capillaries on my nose (Glinda was not first in line when they were handing out the good skin) and it seemed this product caused more problems than it solved. Because really, they don’t solve anything.
Instead, I use a cleansing product with glycolic acid and lotions that help to minimize the look of my pores.
Am I the only one who is obsessed with this?
My large pores and I will just slink away now.
