***ORIGINAL REVIEW: I've used the original pore strips and they do a decent job, but they aren't amazing. If you have a lot of small blackheads on your nose, the original ones really only pulled out one or two, and the rest were just a bunch of fine hairs.
I gave these ultra pore strips a try and they definitely do a better job. I had much more effective extraction of all those pesky tiny blackheads on my nose/tip of my nose. I've tried masks, manual extraction, exfoliation and nothing would do a great job clearing all those dots. After one use of these ultra strips, the tip of my nose looks MUCH clearer and the pores look noticeably smaller -- I was skeptical at first but I was really pleasantly surprised.
In addition, unlike the original strips, these strips contain tea tree oil, so you can feel a refreshing, cool tingle on your skin... and if you've ever used tea tree oil, it works wonders on your skin and works as an antiseptic, which is a nice...
The outside of my nose has been a problem area for me since junior high, as there was always an annoying amount of tiny black dots and little black hairs growing out of it. I'm sure most people don't notice them (my Indian skin hides them well), but I know they're there! Up until now, I'd handled them through daily washing and fingernail extraction (I've still got some scars from my early attempts...). Now that I'm doing better financially, I decided to "splurge" and "treat myself" to these strips. $15 for 6 strips sounds excessive, but I'm only really going to use them for big occasions, so I figured I'd try some before a Saturday event.
The directions are fairly easy: wash your face and pat dry, then sprinkle some water on your nose, dry your hands, and separate the strip from the plastic. Spread the smooth part across your nose, and gently rub it for a bit before waiting for around 15 minutes for it to dry. Then gently strip it off your nose from the edges inward...

I decided to compare three different pore strips, Biore Original, Biore Ultra and Kose, a Japanese brand that I can't remember whether I got on ebay or at Daiso. I chose to use the Kose strip first because I really wanted to compare the two versions of Biore, and I figured it would be a more fair comparison if I used the Kose first and ripped out the tiny little hairs on my nose as well as making an original pass at my clogged pores. The Kose strips don't work quite as well as Biore, but pretty close and they are less expensive. Plus, they are BLACK so if you want to be like that woman in the commercial who is examining her pore strip and going "oh gross, it looks like a porcupine!" (and isn't that half the point of using pore strips?) the black makes it very easy to see all the gross stuff you get out of your nose. Fun, fun!
Anyway, after the Kose strips I waited about five days and then tried the Biore "Original". I like to use pore strips right out of a long, steamy...
