Review: Revitale Deeply Absorbent Charcoal Nose Strips

Hey all! Today I did a review for you all on a product I got a couple of days - Deeply Absorbent Charcoal Nose Strips by Revitale! I found them in Savers errand running for just £1 and thought "Why not?". It seems charcoal and general black stuff is good for getting black and whiteheads out; I've been eyeing up Missha's Black Ghassoul Clay Nose Mask so I bought this to check out if homegrown items are just as good before I buy others! Here's the packaging and the insides:

Contrary to the packaging design, you wet your nose and put the strip on black charcoal side down and wait 15-20 minutes or until it goes hard and stiff. No photos of that step, heh heh! When taking it off, it hurt! It felt like taking a piece of duct tape off! Did the super stickiness take out some of the black/whiteheads? I'm not sure but here are photos of the strip and the yuckiness that it "took off"!

It was really crunchy when I took it off and stayed in the shape of my nose! XD It seems it especially took skin flakes and heads from the sides of my nose, which is what I was hoping! Here are before and after comparison photos of my nose!

Before and after

In real life, I couldn't really tell the difference between the top of my nose, which has some blackheads deeply embedded in them but there was a lot less white stuff in the corners of my nose.

Before and after

Yep, definitely some whiteheads have been taken out! It feels deeply cleaned and less greasy.

TL;DR: For £1, it's a pretty good product and you get 5 strips in the packaging. You're supposed to use one a week so it lasts over a month! That's 20p a strip! I've just bought a pore comedone, which is a stainless steel rod with two loops of metal on either ends which supposedly rolls out black and whiteheads and makes your pores smaller. I think, combined with this and a little steaming before, black and whiteheads will be a thing of the past! 4/5 stars!

I'm having a beauty-themed giveaway at the moment to win a ton of items including hair, body lotion and tons of make-up so why don't you head on over and enter? What have you got to lose? ^_~
