Review: Superdrug Tea Tree Pore Strips

I know I'm not the only one who has a slightly morbid obsession with pore strips and close inspection of all the gunk they remove from my pores; it stands to reason, then, that I'm not alone in having been sorely disappointed when I've removed a pore strip and been left with nothing to investigate! These pore strips, however, are extremely satisfying, doing a great job of sticking to and sucking out any blackheads and leaving my pores clear and tightened.
"No pore excuse for blackheads! These deep cleansing Tea Tree Nose Strips make use of the latest skincare technology to help you maintain a healthy, clear complexion. The antibacterial action of Tea Tree Oil combines with special ingredients that bond with skin impurities, to help lift blackheads and relieve blockages, leaving you with cleaner pores."
Superdrug Tea Tree Nose Pore Strips Review
Each individually packaged strip shows the instructions for use, which are the same as all pore strips; apply to clean, damp skin, leave until stiff then peel off. I use these on clean, freshly cleansed skin, and tend to hold a hot flannel or muslin cloth over my nose for a few minutes first to open my pores up nicely. Like all shaped products, they don't fit my nose very well, but I do get a decent amount of contact. The tea tree scent is quite strong which may be a problem if you're not a fan, but for me it's great as I love tea tree! After about ten minutes, the strip has dried nicely and you can carefully peel it off from the edges in, revealing lovely clean pores and a strip of disgusting joy for your perusal. Sorry for the slightly gross photo below, but I think it shows quite well how effective these strips are!
Review Superdrug Tea Tree Nose Pore Strips
Obviously I wouldn't recommend these if you have dry or sensitive skin as you risk damaging it or having a reaction, but if your skin is combination-oily and you suffer with clogged pores, like me, then I highly recommend you give Superdrug's Tea Tree Pore Strips a go; they're definitely the best brand I've tried and one of the most reasonably priced, too. They'll set you back just £3.99, are often on offers such as 2 for £4, and a box contains five strips making them 80p a go at full price!
What are your favourite pore strips? Do you love to investigate what's been unplugged from your pores, too?

  6. I have some of these and I do not get on with them at all :( I find they are really hard to work with and will not stick well at all for me. I've tried Biore before and I think they were much better.

    The T-Zone ones are pretty good too :)
