I love nose strips. After using the one from Sephora, I wanted to try more. The joy of seeing the whiteheads being ripped out from the skin gives me an immense pleasure (weird pleasures!). Today’s review is all about Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Charcoal Nose Pore Strips. Read on to know more!

My Experience with Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Charcoal Nose Pore Strips:
The nose strips come in a sachet similar to the other products from Montagne Jeunesse. There is all the information and ‘how to use’ given on the back of the sachet. When I opened the sachet, I expected 3 nose strips to be lying there, but I was happy to see that there were 3 smaller sachets which house the nose strips. This makes the product very hygienic and travel-friendly. The purple sachets have information on them and for the price I pay, I feel it is great! I absolutely love the packaging.
Inside each sachet, there is a nose strip. The nose strip is black in color denoting the charcoal and is stuck to a transparent film. It is very easy to remove and apply. The application is very easy. You need to wet your nose, apply the strip, wait for 15-20 minutes and remove it. The size of the strip is perfect and it sits perfectly on my nose, covering 3/4th of my nose.
The nose strip has strong adhesive and sticks well. It smells very pleasant. The strip provides a cooling effect but due to its natural ingredients, it does gives a slight tingling effect. Once dried and when it has to be pulled off, be ready for pain! Since the adhesive is strong, it does cause some pain. The product does leave the sticky residue behind and has to be cleansed. The residue is sticky and can be messy. When pulling out the nose strip, even though it hurts, the strong adhesive makes it easier to hold onto the dirt and it pulls away all the whiteheads, blackheads and also the dry skin. I had a cold and due to constant rubbing of my nose with tissues, I had a lot of dry skin and with just one pull, my nose is completely clear and smooth. Once the residue is washed off, my nose has a shiny radiance and feels very clean. The skin is also very smooth and feels feathery soft.
The product doesn’t cause any redness, and thus, making it suitable for sensitive skin. The strip cleanses the skin from within and cleans the pores by pulling out the dirt and grime accumulated. You need to follow up with a good toner or astringent to close the pores. The product doesn’t get hold of the whiteheads or blackheads on the corners of the nose. This is where most of the dirt gets accumulated, but by the design, there is lighter adhesive hold in this area, and thus, it doesn’t pull out all the dirt from there. The product is made from natural ingredients and doesn’t contain paraben. So, summing up:
