THE SKINNY: I am one of those people that has been using pore strips from about the time they first hit the market.
There is something about peeling the dirt away from my face that just feels clean. (I know it is bizarre!)
Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips are the grown-up version of those same strips I used a decade ago. And they are not just for the nose; I always use them for the troublesome chin area.
Dampen your face. Pop on the strip (and hide from anyone else who lives in your house for the next 15 minutes) while it hardens. Then peel and look at all the little gobs of dirt that are gone from your skin.
The strip made my skin a little red at first, but it went away quickly. And the next day, wow, the area was super-smooth and the pores looked smaller.
These strips are more expensive than the grocery store variety, but they work. Boscia's strips seemed to get my skin cleaner (pulling out all those little blackheads) with less irritation. Plus they are not made with preservatives.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. They really work!
CHECK IT OUT: Boscia uses a variety of natural ingredients and you can buy direct from the site.
