Biore released their Resort Nose Strips in the Summer of 2010. Seriously, what’s better than sitting around with a nose strip on than one that’s like a tropical vacation! These scented nose strips whisked you away to a private paradise as they dug deep into your pores to remove those pesky blackheads.
Hmmm maybe it was a tropical paradise for your blackheads rather than for you.
Either way, aromatherapy in nose strips, can I get a hells yes?
This year, two new scented nose strips have arrived in Japan.
Take a look, they aren’t tropical island paradises but they do bring some fun fruity, floral notes to your nose strip world!
Biore Aroma Collection comes in two scents, Romantic Rose and Happy Grapefruit, oh joy! Happy Days!
Exactly per the name they are an aromatherapy type treatment. The strips work just like any other nose strip. Wet your nose, slap a strip on, sit back, and relax while it dries down. The main difference? These are scented so you get the soothing scent of a rose (or a grapefruit) as the pore strip works.
I’ve always been rather fond of the Japanese Biore Nose Strips, they seem to do a better job stripping out the gunk from my nose. These come in the charcoal version (rose) or the regular white strips (grapefruit).
The Romantic Rose has a sweet rose scent. This is a very pleasant Victorian Rose scent, not a TP (toilet paper) type of scent but more a sweet rose scent. I actually loved it and I don’t typical enjoy floral scents but rose is one of my downfalls when done right.
The Happy Grapefruit is actually just as delightful since it isn’t a sour citrus scent but more of a sweet, happy grapefruit scent.
The scents are actually quite strong so you can smell them throughout the pore strips dry down.
Do you need them?
Probably not but they are a novel little purchase particularly if you use nose strips anyway and just wanted something a little different going on with your regime!
A friend of mine scent them to me from Japan but one of my favorite E-bay sellers, AlphaBeautyUK sells them for a very decent price with shipping.
Pick up a box or two, I think you’ll be delighted. I wish Biore would release some here in the US!
