Pain is Tolerable
If you miss a spot, you can re-use a corner
Leaves your nose feeling smooth Possible to miss spots ***I got a pack of 8, so obviously it's going to be cheaper.
For a first-time pore strip user, I'm actually quite impressed with it. I used to just squeeze the bejeebers out of my nose. My black and white heads were so small that I'd have to be an inch away from the mirror to see them (they bothered me, but I didn't decide to buy them until I saw that my friend needed serious help - I could see his from far away). These things even sucked out gunk I couldn't see. I could immediately feel the difference in my skin texture. Also, the adhesive on the strip becomes very smooth and silky when wet, almost like aloe vera (and when you push down on the tip of your nose a bit of it drips down). Then it dries. And if you go slow when it's time to remove it, it really doesn't hurt that bad. Anyways. It does leave a bunch of dried up adhesive afterwards, but when you wet your face again, it goes back to that smooth/slimy feel. Just wipe it off. No big deal at all.
I can't stop touching my nose now... I'll probably have to use this more often than normal, haha.
Also, if you have a weirdly shaped nose like mine (button, lacking a nose bridge -etc), you might miss some spots. Instead of just leaving it there for the next time, I made the problem spot wet again and used a clean corner of the strip (it still has adhesive on it). Works just as fine as it did the first time.
I'll definitely buy this again. Having a nose that isn't plagued with blackheads is worth every penny.
