No kidding- man! These little strips work!!! I have pretty clear skin- only get one pimple or so on occassion. (i'm lucky!) but the pores on my nose are kind of obnixious, so i was wanting something to help reduce their apparence....and wow- these little strips rock!!! how sad is it that i was starting at it in total amazement of what came off of my nose

I have been thinking about trying those and I didn't know if they worked or not. But I am glad that I saw your thread! Now I really want to try them! Does it hurt when you pull it off?

Yes, I use Biore nose strips. I really like them a great deal. However, if you look closely, you will find not only gunk from pores, but also the hair on your nose, LOL They remove everything. Also, don't exceed the recommended use of them. It's there for a reason...trust me,

EDIT: No, it doesn't hurt to remove it.

I have the Biore ones too. I just think its amazing when you rip them off and put them up to the light, what actually comes out of your face!

Kinda gross and cool at the same time. Lmao

Let's all celebrate the Gunk Forest and the little Gunkies that live there!

I should really go out and buy some of these. I'll have to wait until Tuesday because tomorrow is a holiday.

I'm really intrigued to see the little gunk forests everyone is talking about.

I tried them back when they were still new (well, when they were new to the general public who saw the commercials on TV, lol), and maybe I didn't do it right, but I didn't get much off the strip. I waited until it was dry (but maybe it needed to dry a little more), but pretty much nothing came off on it. Bummer. And I have a nasty little blackhead problem, so major bummer. But maybe I'll try it again, since I probably did it wrong (and if not, maybe they've improved the strips since then, lol).

Hmmm, I've been using them since they first came out and haven't had a problem.

Make sure you wash your face so that you remove the oil from your skin. Then wet your nose and place the strip on, rounded side down over the tip. Fold over the edges and press down while rubbing gently. Moisten your finger tips if necessary. You want the strip wet when it's first on. Then let it dry. Wait for it to be really dry before removing. Peel off from the edges towards the centre.

Just as I've said many times before - Anything you need to know you can learn on The Cat Site!

If you buy this product, be sure to get the Biore brand and not the generic. The off-brand strips make my skin break out. Something in the glue, and they're not as effective. I wasn't willing to pay full price and ended up getting pimples and no gunkies on the strip. What a waste. Buy brand name strips.
