Hi,

Has anyone used those Biore Pore Strips? I was thinnking that Duck Tape would be like the same? Is this a good idea? And those friggen Pore Strips are like 6$! *CH CHING!* Expensive Much?

Thanks,

Jon.

I actually just tried the biore pore strip for the first time since 10 years... Lots of people love those strips, but personally it doesn't work that well for me (didn't work 10 years ago too). I guess my pores aren't big enough for it to grab, even i steamed my face to open the pores first.

I'd say it pulled out like 20% of my blackheads.

almost 100% tiny hair.....so it was painful

I ended up squeezing the blackheads out with fingers.

Duck tape doesn't work the same way.

you probably can pull hair out with duck tape,

but it wouldn't hold on to blackheads.

6$ do sounds overpriced

in Hong Kong I bought a box with 10 strips in it for about.. US$2

Biore Strips,

They work great, love them for blackheads on my nose. I use them like 2-3 times a month. It's like a buck a strip, well worth it. I'm not sure if the duct tape thing was a joke, but I doubt it will work as well. It will probably make your skin worse off.

I do not think the duct tape would work the same but the Biore strips work OK. They aren't really fantastic in my opinion but they do work. They really are painful though.

I don't think duct tape would work. You add water to the strips and it makes like a glue... but the glue on the tape isn't that watery?
