Charcoal & Volcanic Ash Unclog Pore Strips by Montagne Jeunesse

This could quite possibly be the shortest post on my blog ever - there is only a limited amount you can say about strips that are designed to rip out any blockages from the pores in your face I suppose. So today, and for the first time ever I’m going to don a Montagne Jeunesse Charcoal & Volcanic Ash Unclog Pore Strips. I confess that I only tried these after seeing the packet in my box of things to try, taking a look in the mirror and thinking yeah, there are a few blocked pores there that could be on the verge of getting unsightly - I do after all spend two hours every day trapped on London Underground with the grime and pollution.

At 90 pence, yes 90 pence for a pack of three strips from Primark these aren’t exactly going to break the bank, and if they didn’t work it wasn’t as though much cash had been laid out on them.

This is what they say about the product over at the Montagne Jeunesse website here:

‘Mens nose pore strips enriched with Natural Charcoal that helps to absorb excess sebum and blackheads for cleaner, less visible pores around the nose, whilst Volcanic Minerals help to clear dead cells.’

After rinsing my face and leave it wet I removed one of the strips, ripped off the protective plastic and slapped the strip onto my nose. Applying pressure for about a minute and it stuck like glue, and I really do mean, like glue. There was no way this was falling off or showed any signs of peeling away from the skin.

After around two minutes it started to get a bit warm, nothing uncomfortable just slightly weird as I hadn’t expected that to happen.

Now, with ten minutes to kill until I could rip it off like a crusty old plaster I went to take a look in the mirror where I was immediately hit with two thoughts which seemed to come at the same time - the first was a flashback to the mighty Robbie Fowler in his Liverpool glory days (see picture below) and the second was a mild worry that as my nose is so massive if this was great it might leave a stripe where blocked pores remained. To say I was curious about the results was a understatement and then came the moment of truth….
God

With it’s adhesive nature in mind I was surprised how easily it peeled off and the fact that it was entirely painless. But, did it unblock my pores, draw out dirt and grime while removing any dead skin? Yes, yes it did. After rinsing off my face my nose was noticeably smoother to the touch, where there were blocked pores before there were none now and generally I have nothing but praise for these unblocking pore strips.

These won’t break the bank, they work and work well - with that in mind, my advice is give them a try.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
