Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips

Boscia brings the first black nose strips to the US with their new Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips.

Nose strips aren’t a common pick up in the prestigious cosmetic world and are most commonly associated with Biore here in the US however charcoal strips or black strips are very common in the Asian market. Various brands produce nose strips including Shiseido in Asia.

We are sorely lacking…

But thanks to Boscia we now have a new way to attack those pesky blackheads!

This pack of six peels doesn’t come cheap, $15 bucks but they do promise to do battle with your blackheads and draw out impurities while detoxifying and mattifying your shiny nose.

Silica, a natural mineral, controls excess oil while witch hazel extract, a natural astringent, tightens pores.

The strips have a cooling sensation when applied and charcoal powder that draws out the nasties!

The thing is you can get boxes of charcoal strips at many Asian markets from many brands for far less…$15 bucks might prove a little too expensive for some but fans of the brand probably won’t mind in the least.

Available exclusively at Sephora.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      I haven’t tried these yet productdoctor so not sure but charcoal strips in general seem to work better for me than Biore!

  • Liz!

    I never had luck with the Biore ones but these ones, though a bit spendy, look intriguing to me! I’ve never seen any charcoal ones at Asian markets, I’ll have to keep my eyes open for them.

    • the Muse

      oh Liz they are plentiful around here ;-D! You should be able to find them, just about every Asian brand has ’em :D!

  • Fuuka

    • the Muse

  • Neeners

    Thanks for the news of this nose strip. I read it yesterday and purchased it right away. It seems like a regular strip like from Biore or Clean & Clear but my nose felt so soft after I peeled it off and saw the nasties on there. I’m happy I got it and may check out some cheaper versions at an Asian market. 😀

    • the Muse

      that’s brilliant neeners ;-D was wondering how well they performed ;D!

  • Erika

    I tried the strips today,but not much was extracted… Would that mean my pores are clean or that the strips arent effective?
