As much as I love strawberries, I hate my ‘strawberry nose‘ ! As some of you may be able to relate, one of the most annoying and embarrassing thing about having oily skin would be having an abundance of blackheads. I have a MASSIVE problem with blackheads, especially the ones on my nose. No amount of primer, foundation or concealer have proven victorious in transforming my strawberry nose into a nice and smooth one. So as much as I know that pore strips/ masks may not be the best method, I still use them because I need the blackheads to be less visible! 😐
The Biore’s Pore strips have always been a bathroom staple for me, but recently I came across a different type of ‘pore strip’ – the Yu-r’s Pore Remodeling Mask. So the Yu-r Mask comes with 1 tube of the gel (i.e the remodelling mask) and 10 ‘clear pads’. I was intrigued about this type of blackhead removing mask because it doesn’t come in a strip! Meaning it is able to cover a lot more areas and reach areas that the pore strips cannot. The product, however was fairly expensive (to me anyways)… $30 AUD for a pack of 10! 😦
- After cleansing place the clear pads onto the nose area and leave for 10 minutes
- Remove the pore clear pad and apply pore remodelling mask over the nose area
- Leave to dry for 10-15 minutes or until harden
- Slowly peel off nose strip from the outer edges , lifting towards the centre of the nose.
Price: Expensive. In comparison to the Biore’s pore strips this product is fairly expensive, but the price is pretty much on par with the Korean blackhead removing strips like the Piggy-Nose pore strips. Nevertheless, still expensive to me!
Convenience: Urm, No. To have to use the watery clear pads for 15 minutes then apply a wet layer of the remodelling mask – it’s a messy process. If you’re a multi-tasker or someone always on the go then this product may be a tad too fiddly! Also if you use too much of the remodelling mask it can drip all over the place.. not fun 😦 .
Removal potential: Meh. It does remove more black heads than the Biore’s pore strips, but I have a feeling it has more to do with the ‘clear pads’ than the remodelling mask. Also, despite numerous attempts I could not get the mask off in one piece so I couldn’t really judge exactly how much of my black heads it was sable to remove.
Easy to use? Will require practice. It’s a balancing act trying to get the right amount of product onto your nose – too much and it will be a droopy mess and too little, you’d be wasting your time. Practice is key, but that also means wasting products! 😦
Repurchase? Nope. I’d rather stick with my Piggy-Nose’s or Biore’s pores strips thanks – just a lot more easier and less messy!
Overall , it was a fun product to play with and it was able to remove some blackheads but nothing wow-worthy. Also the application process is too messy and the removal of the remodelling mask isn’t easy either! I actually like using the ‘clear pads’ though and have been using that as a before I apply my Biore’s pore strip, I find that it removes alot more blackheads this way 😉 . Personally, I think I’d stick to the Piggy-Nose pore strips or the Biore’s for now.
