charcoal pore strips


Pore strips can remove weeks (yes- weeks!) worth of pore gunk with just one strip. Learn even more by checking out Pore Strips 101, a guide to pore strips that includes advice from top skincare experts. With natural charcoal, pore strips suck out deep-down dirt, oil and blackheads, leaving skin feeling fresh, clean and 3x less oily.

Product Details


  • Uses a blend of C-bond technology to remove the dirt and oil that causes blackheads
  • With purifying charcoal powder, the strip acts like a sponge to draw out and absorb excess dirt and oil, reducing shine.
  • Keeps oil at bay for 24 hours.


  1. Use only on the nose.
  2. Avoid using on acne blemishes or swollen, sunburned, excessively dry skin, or skin prone to spider veins.
  3. Consult a physician before using on skin being treated with prescription acne medication.
  4. Avoid using on skin which is sensitive to bandages or peel-off face masks.
  5. Remove strip as directed promptly after it becomes stiff. If strip is difficult or painful to remove, wet strip thoroughly until it slides off easily. Forceful removal of the strip should be avoided and may cause skin abrasions. If this occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician.
  6. Do not use more often than once every three days.

Charcoal Pore Strips | Bioré® Skincare is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy I just used these strips for the first time today! It got rid of most of my blackheads although, it did not get rid of all of my blackheads but I didn't expect it to! Since it was my first time using it I was satisfied! I assume after a few weeks of using it every 3 days my blackheads should be almost gone! Clear skin takes time people, there is no easy fix! Patient is key to beautiful skin :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Just tried my first strip today. Took out all my blackheads on my nose. Gaze at the horror and be amazed by seeing all the blackheads that are stuck to the charcoal strip. Thanks Biore'!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from completely unsatisfied I bought these strips all excited because I love the regular ones and they do not work at all. I thought I was doing something wrong because they didn't work, but after three tries still nothing. Will not be buying these agains.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont work at all. i tried these for Christmas the first one I used did nothing, I tried again one on me who has been using pore strips for years and one on my boyfriend who has never used one in his life and neither of them had more than half a blackhead on them. both times the instructions were explicitly followed. I've used the original pore strips and they work great but these did absolutely nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! 1st time ever using a nose strip only used it because I got 1 free that came with the charcoal face wash. I applied a little too much water on the sides which didn't stick on good so I still see some blackheads but I am so surprised that it got rid of almost all of them. Even more surprising to see, some really big blackheads on the side of my nose were on the strip. I will definitely purchase more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! First, I have light tan-olive skin. Big pores are my main & most noticeable concern, but the black heads on my nose is my absolute problem. They are clear to see by looking at me. Not to mention, I wear glasses. I'm so self-conscious when I talk to people because I feel like it's all they see. Second, I've tried the other nose strip products and was satisfied with the outcome, but some blackheads were still REALLY obvious. I had to use several times just to get an outcome I was OK with. But third and most important of all, I bought this product today on a VERY limited budget and seeing it was different from the original, drew my attention; So I took a chance. I finally used the product and I must say, IT IS AMAZING! I like to steam my nose(to open up the pores), splash with very warm water and apply. When it dried, I slowly peeled off, immediately rinsed with some facial cleanser & cold water, then followed it by toner. I'm COMPLETELY, UNDOUBTEDLY SATISFIED with this product and have DEFINTELY become a REPEAT user. Because of your product, I can feel more confident and my self-consciousness of blackheads will become a thing of the past! I RECOMMEND this product to anyone with TOUGH, DEEP and NOTICEABLE blackheads. Thank you Biore!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Clean! I bought this item and I was really excited to try it! I tried it as soon as I got home and was impressed! After removing the strip my nose felt clean and polished. I loved the feeling of it being clean because I would use other products and I wouldn't feel that way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! I use this product over and over again because it works! It removes a lot (but not all) of my blackheads. Just looking at the gross stuff that came out is definitely satisfying and worth the buy.
