Review: T-Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips

I love pore strips, and I know I'm not alone in my slightly morbid obsession with investigating the former contents of my pores on those sticky little strips; it's so satisfying! In the past I've bought Superdrug's own-brand Tea Tree pore strips as a matter of course and have always found them pretty good; I remember using T-Zone's Clear Out Nose Pore Strips back in my early teens and having not one.single.bit.of.gunk on them to investigate - sad days! However, I'd heard that T-Zone had reformulated their strips and after spotting them on offer a while ago (I don't remember where or how much, sorry!) I decided I'd give them another go.
T Zone Pore Strips Review
"It's better to prevent spots rather than having to treat them. T-Zone products contain natural antibacterial ingredients, which are scientifically proven to be tough on spots but gentle on skin. T-Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips have been specially formulated to grab onto blackheads, dirt and grease, lifting them clean away; help remove spot-causing bacteria; unclog pores to help skin breather; be specially shaped for use over the bridge of the nose."
The premise is much the same as any pore strips; you make sure your face is clean, then dampen your skin, press the strip on, and wait around ten minutes for it to go stiff before carefully peeling off. I tend to hold a warm cloth over my nose for a minute or so first to open my pores up a little, and find that pore strips are more effective after this, so that would be my top tip! There's a warning on the packet not to use on spots, blemishes or inflamed, swollen, broken, sunburnt, or excessively dry skin, or if you're sensitive to plasters or peel off masks - which is common sense, really, but worth mentioning.
T-Zone Pore Strips Review
T-Zone's Pore Strips have been much more effective for me this time around, removing a satisfying amount of oil and other dirt from my pores each time. They're easy to use (as are all pore strips, to be fair!) and give reasonably good results in a short space of time. I also like that the full instructions and ingredients are printed on the back of each individual sachet as well as on the box. I'd definitely consider buying these in the future if I see them on offer again, although at full price they're more expensive than my old Superdrug favourites, despite doing a pretty similar job as far as I'm concerned.
Review T-Zone Pore Strips
All in all, I'd recommend T-Zone's pore strips if you struggle with blocked pores around your nose - they're pretty good at clearing the pores out and won't break the bank. T-Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips are available to purchase from Superdrug and other retailers, with an RRP of £5.05 for a box containing six strips - though apparently the packaging has been changed since I bought these! Do you use pore strips? What's your favourite brand? Have you ever tried T-Zone's version?

    1. No, as I said in the post I think they're comparable to Superdrug's own brand product. I think I got mine from Home Bargains or similar, too! :) xo

  7. You can buy these in Home Bargains for £1.99 I believe. I used to use them but stopped about a year ago as I read about how much damage they can cause, there is no doubt however that they are pretty satisfying! :)
