How’s the Diwali shopping going on?
Today I used a nose strip, so I thought why not review it
I had been looking for nose strips recently for the white and black heads on the nose that are so painful to get rid of. I came across this pack by a brand called Cool&Cool. They had some 2 varieties in it – one was some Charcoal strip in black, and another was a Deep Cleansing in white. It’s available as a single strip and also in a pack of three. I picked up the pack of three white strips – Deep Cleansing Nose strips.
Price: Rs. 139 for a pack of 3. The charcoal one was a bit more expensive
How to use:
What does the company say:
Each strip comes in a plastic pouch. The nose strip is made of a thick paper with a layer of kind of a glue on the other side. The gluey side is stuck on a plastic sheet.
To use one has to wash face to clean it from any creams/lotions. Next, moist your nose just enough to have the strip stick on, not too much. Then place the strip carefully, tightly on the nose. The instructions on pack say you wait for 10-15 minutes. I would suggest, wait a little longer until you are sure the strip has completely dried. I waited for about 20-25 minutes. If it’s still wet and you remove, it won’t work well.
I wear a nose-pin and if I ever remove it, somehow I can’t put it back. Many times I have had to pierce my nose again whenever I took it off So while putting on the strip, I made a little slit just where the nosepin was, so it fit around the nosepin nicely
What I liked about Cool & Cool nose strips:
- It did remove a lot of black and whiteheads off my nose.
What I did not like about Cool & Cool nose strips:
- The pack should have mentioned what to apply after removing the strip so the pores don’t remain open and catch more dirt.
I’ll buy it again, and will also try the charcoal one.
