Having an oily skin makes me get blackheads and whiteheads easily. They will pop out on my face without any invitation if I clean my face carelessly. With all my activities, I don’t have much time to get a decent facial at beauty clinics and it sucks to have those whiteheads and blackheads. Usually, I use a nose pack (the one that looks like a sticker) to get rid of them, but that kind of nose pack is quite expensive and ineffective. That’s all happened until I found this great product!
If you go to the supermarkets or cosmetic shops and ask for a nose pack, they usually will give you the one looks like a sticker. This is the most common nose pack type you can find in Indonesia. Daiso Natural Nose Pack is not like other nose pack because of its texture. Yap, this product is a liquid pore strip. Though I may say its more a gluey-like texture.
I bought this on online shop since there is no Daiso Shop in Indonesia. It cost me around IDR40,000 not including the shipping fee. Since it’s a Japanese product, you can see that the information is written in Japanese. Fortunately, they are kind enough to write the translation in English as well. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have any ideas what this product is about.
This product comes in a tube package and it has a seal on the tube so that you know it’s brand new and hygienic. Now let’s talk about the texture. As I mentioned before, the texture is like glue. Yes, don’t get me wrong but it could be mistaken as a glue. Then it continued going downhill with the smell. Not only the texture is much like glue, but the smell is also just like glue! Well, they made an attempt to make it floral-scented (I appreciate that), but it didn’t work out. It’s a good thing that I use this product in a weekly basis.
Let’s go down to the business. I squeezed a small amount of this and put it on my nose. Sounds easy, eh? but trust me, it is not easy to apply this on your nose because of the texture. it kept sticking on my finger! and it was a struggle to spread the product evenly on my nose. After a minute or so, I was finally able to put a decent amount of it.
Since this is a peel-off pore mask so no washing needed, unless you have residue left over. The Daiso Nose Pack dries pretty fast, around 10-15 minutes or so. Once dry, gently start peeling starting at the bottom, pulling toward the top. It’s pretty easy to get it off in one piece. Now let’s see the result!
Ooooh, yuck! As you can see on the pict, all my blackheads and whiteheads were removed! It’s disgusting yet satisfying! After stripping the pore pack, my nose felt smooth and the pores looked smaller. Then, I continued the treatment using my toner and moisturizer.
Despite the glue-like texture, I do love this product compared to the common pore strip because it could reach difficult area on my nose, like the tip of my nose. Usually, if I use the common pore strip, the strip doesn’t reach it. Maybe those pore strips are made for people with pointed nose. Duh!
Are you ready for the final verdict?
What I love about this product:
– It effectively removes my blackheads and whiteheads
– It makes my pores tighter and clean.
– Super duper cheap, can be used for more than 2 months.
– Easy to use, you don’t have to be an expert.
What I don’t like:
– Availability in Indonesia. You have to buy it online.
– It’s sticky – while spreading it. It’s also kind of messy.
– The smell is a bit annoying.
I will definitely buy this product again. How about you? What do you do to get rid of those annoying blackheads and whiteheads?
