Tony Moly Vs. Biore: Pore Strip Showdown!

Tony Moly Vs. Biore: Pore Strip Showdown!

Hello everyone! Can we talk about how school is finally done and summer has begun! I am so excited to be back. But I am even more excited to start a new series on my blog….. The Vs.

There are way too many products on the market that do (supposedly) the same thing. Well, here on my Vs. I will be trying two or more products that have the same claims!

This weeks contenders:

Tony Moly- Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack ($3.50)
Vs.
Biore- Deep Cleansing Pore Strips ($7.99)

Processed with VSCO with f1 presetLets talk about pros for the Tony Moly:
Covers a lot larger area
Pulls out many black heads
No Pain
Leaves no residue

Cons:
1 to a pack
More expensive

Processed with VSCO with f1 presetBiore Pros:
Pulls out a lot of black heads
Is black so you can see the results better
More comes in a pack
Cheaper

Cons:
Covers a smaller area
Leaves black residue on the skin

They both claim the same thing, to rid you of clogged pores. Both strips are applied the same way and take the same amount of time to dry. I would say they take out the same amount of pore gunk but since the tony moly one is so much larger you get a larger area cleaned.

I have used biore strips for ever and a day (no lie), but for me after just one use I have to declare the Tony Moly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack as the winner!

If you enjoy these kinds of posts let me know in the comments as well as any questions or concerns….. Let’s chat!

Question of the day: Have you tried either of the products mentioned above? What did you think?

Tony Moly Strawberry Nose Pack Review!

Tony Moly Strawberry Nose Pack Review!

So, today is a super exciting review! I’m obsessed with all things skin care. I couldn’t wait any longer to try the Tony Moly Strawberry Nose Pack! I have terrible black heads on my nose (doesn’t everyone?) so I figured I’d give it a shot. Now, as I write I will be using all three steps and giving you my opinion as it comes to me!

Just a little bit about the pack itself… for starters it cost a whopping $3.50! The pack has three separate step: 1. To open the pores up 2. Pulls out the blackheads 3. Closes the pores. This product claims to clear out pore and maintain a black head free face. So here we go!

STEP 1:
In the directions it says to leave the first strip on for 15-20 minutes. It smells fine, I can smell a hint of strawberries. Its super wet so BE CAREFUL opening it! It feels like a sheet mask just on my nose, there is a little tingly feeling but nothing crazy.  Ok now the first strip is off , and my pores look a bit bigger which is a good thing! Hopefully this means a ton of blackheads will get pulled out!

STEP 2: 
The directions say to wet the nose, place it on and wait 10-15 minutes! Oh a little side note the strip is a little pink… ahh so cute. This is pretty much a regular nose strip, no smell or any product on the strip. Not a ton of blackheads are on the strip, but there are a few big ones I can see.

STEP 3:
So, number three stays on for about 5-10 minutes. It’s a piece of gel that just sits on the nose. It smells so good just like strawberries! This is supposed to tighten my pores and moisturize the area. strawberry2

So, final thoughts: I would give this product a 4/5. It didn’t get rid of all the black heads I wish it had, but my nose looks way better than it did before I did all 3 steps. My nose is so smooth and my pores look really good. It took about 40 minutes to complete the pack so I would do it when you have plenty of time.  I would recommend this for sure especially for three dollars and fifty cents!
