No at-home spa day is ever truly complete without peel-off pore strips that get rid of blackheads. Seeing how blackheads are one of our more visible beauty troubles, having a stash of strips ready at all times sounds like a pretty good idea. You can be in your favorite jammies, glass of wine in one hand, a charcoal face mask in the other as a pore tightening treatment hardens on your face — and all that wouldn't be complete if you go to sleep with a smear of black dots that stay stubbornly on your nose.
But rather than picking them with your fingers and risking pushing more bacteria into your pores, try one of the amazing products that promise to do that for you. There are literally so many to choose from: You have three step programs that not only rip but soothe; you have fun, gimmicky ones with cool packaging that make the experience all the more entertaining; and you have ones that use interesting ingredients like volcanic ash or egg whites that help clean your skin out. And they're all worth a shot. To get you started, below are 11 peel-off nose strips that will get rid of all your blackheads. Enjoy!
1"Pig Nose Clear" Strips
This is one of your run-of-the-mill nose strip, where you put it on your nose, wait for it to dry, and then tear it off in an eye watering yelp. But there's also a twist involved: It comes in three different steps, offering you three different strips. What makes it fun is the cheeky name — "Pig Nose" — and the cute graphics explaining what the product will do for you.
In step one, you have a strip that opens up your pores and preps your skin for the removal. In step two, you move onto the actual extraction, and step three offers a sheet that's meant to soothe your skin and close the pores back up.
2"One Stop Clean My Nose" Strips
This is another three step kit that offers you three different sheets to clean your skin thoroughly. The first strip is meant to prep your nose, where it will absorb the oil and open up your pores using 12 different plant extracts. The second strip will extract your blackheads using pine charcoal and Morocco Lava Clay, and the third strip is meant to soothe and cool your tender skin, using tea tree and sage leaf extract. It's like the kit thought of everything!
3. "Choco Cacao" Nose Pore Strips
This one is for the chocolate lovers out there. These 24 nose strips have cacao and witch hazel to draw out contaminants and blackheads from your skin.
4Green Tea Nose Pack
This 30-piece set uses green tea to draw out oil and dirt from your pores, while also soothing redness. You're not to use it more than once or twice a week, meaning your 30 pack will last you for months and months.
5"Skinfood Egg White" Nose Strips
This beauty treatment comes in a 10 count, and it contains egg whites which are meant to be excellent for exfoliating, refining pores, and controlling oil. And the sheets aren't just for your nose — five strips are specifically for your nose, and the other five are for your forehead and chin.
6"Super Girl" Charcoal Nose Cleansing Strips
From the brand Cathy Doll, these nose strips are as cute as they are effective. Coming in a supply of 10, the product uses charcoal to attract dirt and reach deep to extract impurities and black heads.
7Volcanic Lava Ash Nose Strips
This Korean beauty product uses Jeju Island's volcanic ash to absorb excess oil and pull dirt out of your pores. And bonus: It comes with a whopping 30 pieces.
8Lava And Aloe Nose Strips Package
This set contains two different kinds of strips: The hard sheets are the volcanic ash ones and go on first, while the soft sheets are the aloe ones and go on afterwards to soothe the skin.
9"Seedless Strawberry Seeds" Nose Pack
Not only is this product adorable, but it contains three steps to make your nose as clean and spotless as possible. Step one includes a concoction of witch hazel and sage leaf extracts as a prep to open up your pores and soften your skin. It's also supposed to smell like strawberry milk, so that's fun. Step two moves onto the actual blackhead-extracting stage, and that contains lime and lemon extract. Step three is meant to tighten your pores back up, and includes aloe vera leaf and green tea extract.
10SKINMISO Blackhead & Whitehead 3 Step System
According to Amazon, this is Korea's number one nose strip beauty system, so it's worth a shot! A four week program, this kit includes three different steps. The first one includes the actual blackhead removal strip, and it's recommended you put it on after a shower so the steam opens up your pores. The second strip is a calming mask, and it's meant to close your pores back up. And the final step is a "silky essence cream" which is meant to moisturize and buff your skin. If you do this for four weeks, you should see a noticeable difference on your nose.
11Egg Pore Nose Strips
These pore strips are meant to be extra strength, promising to firmly adhere to your face and take out the worst of your blackheads, leaving your skin "just like the surface of a boiled egg." That alone is enough to make me want to buy these.
From strawberry milk strips to lava clay and aloe concoctions, there are so many sheets to try out. One of them is bound to work, so start your blackhead plan of attack ASAP.
