  • Eyeliner smears easily.

Below is the look I created using the B&K palette. I used Brown Sugar, Cream and Stone on my lids, Raspberry on my lips and Black Cocoa for my contour.

Beauty Review: Body Treats’ Charcoal Nose Pore Strips.

Claims:

  • Instantly remove pore-clogging dirt, oil and blackheads.
  • Charcoal absorbs into the pores on your skin and draws out the dirt and oils that are blocking the pores.
  • It also helps reduce the appearance of pores with regular use.

 Direction for use:

  • Wet nose area thoroughly with clean water. (Nose strip will not adhere if the skin is dry)
  • With dry hands, open the nose strip sachet and peel of the plastic liner. (When the nose strip sachet is opened, use the strip immediately.)
  • Apply the nose strip with the shiny side facing your skin. (Try to smooth out any bubbles.)
  • Allow to dry. (Approximately 10-15mins.)
  • When the strip has dried, slowly peel the strip off starting at the edges then pulling towards the center.
  • Remove any residue left on your nose with water.

The Verdict:

  • The nose strip adheres perfectly. It stays in place. However, it’s hard to smooth it out when it comes to the side of the nose.
  • It’s not painful when peeled of unlike other pore strips.
  • Looks dubious at first but effective.
  • My nose feels lighter and soft.
  • Unclogged most of my deep pores.
  • You can see the oil stains on the pore strips proving that the claim of absorbing oil and other impurities is true.
  • Afforable and can last up to a year in storage. (One box = 12 nose strip sachets. – Exclusively distributed by Watsons)
  • Rate: 8/10
