PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Don’t let pesky blackheads or oily skin stop you from facing the world with bold confidence! This innovation in deep cleansing is the solution to your troubles! It goes on liquid, and peels off dry! Now you can unclog pores instantly and strip dirt and oil away, for cleaner and clearer skin. 30 ml

INGREDIENTS
WATER/EAU, POLYVINYL ALCOHOL, PVP, SD ALCOHOL 40-B, SALICYLIC ACID, METHYLPARABEN, DISODIUM EDTA, PARFUM/ FRAGRANCE, AMMONIUM HYDROXIDE, BLUE 1/CI 42090, RED 33/CI 17200


FOR BEST RESULT
1. Clean skin prior to application. Using your finger as an applicator, spread a thick layer of product to top and sides of nose area, including crevices of nose. The strip should extend outward about 1.3 cm on the cheek on both sides of the nose, which will provide a “tab” to hold once strip dries, making removal easier.
2. Removal: After waiting until strip is completely dry (suggested time is 20 minutes), gently use the soft tip of your thumb or finger to rub up enough of the “tab” of the strip until you have enough of a hold on it. Slowly peel the entire strip away from your nose. If needed, rinse/rub off any excess product with warm water.
3. Follow similar instructions when applying to T-zone, forehead or chin.

WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
First of all, a big shout out to JL for helping me out with this review! The lucky thing about my skin is that I don’t have a lot of blackheads, mostly whiteheads, so it’s hard for me to do a proper review of this product. However, JL has them at times. So it works out great for this product! I used it but I couldn’t really see anything on the strip! Haha! I wish I could get him to care about about his skin, but you know how boys are! ;)

Second, I’m a huge fan of these nose strip type of items because they are great at extracting blackheads and whiteheads. I always use the Biore ones but I’m happy that Avon has sent me this product for review because it’s a little more affordable than the Biore ones in comparison and you can use this product not just for your nose but on your t-zone as well. It’s like having two different types of those Biore strips in one product, which means it’s going to be cheaper in the end.

So this is JL before using the product. Even though it’s not a close up photo, but you can definitely see some blackheads on his nose. (Yes, he made these faces on his own, I didn’t tell him! LOL)


This is when he has the product on his nose. The left photo it’s when the product is still drying. As you can tell, it’s a liquid formula and I placed a rather heavy amount all over his nose. I tried my best to make it into the shape of those nose strips. Haha! The suggested time to wait is 20 minutes and that’s exactly how long I waited for. Then I started to peel off the corners and it was a very easy process. But I can see how it can be troublesome for anyone without nails. And the results? Take a look below!


WOW! Look at all those blackheads! Haha! I’m not sure if I’m the only one, but I personally LOVE looking at these after they have been removed from the nose! It’s really gross, but I also feel liberated all the time because these blackheads are gone! Haha! I suggest taking a cloth and use cold water to shrink your pores after using any type of nose strips.

Overall, I love this product by Avon! Not only did it get rid of those nasty blackheads and whiteheads but I really liked the formula of the liquid. It’s very easy to apply and peels off without any real problems. Plus, the liquid make it possible to use on any other area of your face instead if being confined to the nose like the regular nose strips. It’s worth checking out!
