So I bought this 8-pack of pore strips a bit over a month ago. The first time, I used one after a shower and according to the directions - wet my nose and pressed it on. I had read online that it won't work if you don't leave it on long enough, so the first time I left it on for like 25 minutes (which is well over the directions). It didn't do a thing.
Theeeennnnn I read that if it's too dry it won't work either. So the next time I left it on for like twelve minutes. Then I tried more like ten. Then fifteen exactly. Then I started wetting my nose a lot more, or pressing a warm, wet rag over it afterward, then letting it dry as usual. (This is all a few days apart ;)). Nothing has done a thing, and the last time I used one was like over two weeks ago. I've read that they hurt when you peel them off, but that it does the job and it's worth it.
Um, not for me. What am I doing wrong? Every time, it just peels off way too easily. And it's completely dry. Are these only if you have monster blackheads??? Because mine are relatively mild I guess, but they're all over my nose, they're dark, and they're definitely there.
I now have two strips left, and I'd be thrilled if they worked this time! :D
Thanks for your help =)
