NARIS UP Nose Pack Peeling Mask Review

What it claims: This nose pack peeling mask helps deeply loosen pores. Easily removes pore cloggers from loosen pores. The ingredients are gentle to your skin and can remove the dirt in your pores or the remains of your makeup without undue stimulation. As it is absorbed, it freshens your skin and restores it to a healthy condition.

I bought the 20ml sized tube and it's tiny!!! It's even smaller than a sample! This will not last more than a month if you use it twice a week. 

The mask leaves the tube in globs and sometimes it's difficult to control how much comes out because it's so dense. The texture is gooey to touch but will wash off with water, or you can wait until it dries and then peel it off. 

Caution.... disturbing photos ahead.....


More warning.....

Okay, you've been warned:

If you (dare) click to enlarge the photo, you can see that my nose harbours quite a lot of white and black heads. If you glance at the after photo (you don't even need to closely observe because it's so apparent), you will see that none of the blackheads left my nose. The mask simply ripped out the hair on my nose and got rid of some white heads. I already did this mask post a 30 minute steaming hot shower. 

I decided to be forgiving and try it a second time, 10 minutes after I ripped it off my nose. Observe the results below:

Both times it ripped out hair!! I've concluded that this mask will remove white heads but blackheads are too stubborn for it. 

The Good:
♥ cleans out white heads
 affordable, but not if you want to use it consistently
 can purchase easily online or asian beauty store

The Bad:
♥  rips out hair
 doesn't clean out blackheads
 there are probably other products out there that are more effective

Repurchase: Nah.....

I got this on sale for $5.99 on Sasa, but it is also available on Imomoko for $7.99. You can also try the NARIS UIP Eggshell & Charcoal Mask, which is a peeling face pack for removing blackheads, but I've seen bloggers use it on their nose too. 

This big mess is the damage from my last post and which the NARIS UP Nose pack was part of. I'll continue picking at this and review the items I've purchased (:

Have a lovely weekend all!

Oh geez, sorry to hear it didn't get rid of your blackheads. And it ripped out hair? Ouch! Thanks for the review. :)

I have tried the eggshell and charcoal but I didn't like it as much - I should give it another try lol

thanks for the review!

Ahahahaaaaa! I have the same peel that I also got from Sasa n it did exactly the same thing for me as it did for you. Am thinking they should rename the product to be used for bushwacking instead xD
Your nose is nowhere NEAR mine in terms of grossness, my blackheads have their own blackheads.
Try the Face Shop's mud nose pack, it smells like wood glue and you'll cry like a little girl when you rip it off, but it does indeed take out blackheads.

yaaah! it sounds painful hahaha! but the black color is cool since you can see the whiteheads (and hair lol) which got pulled out of your nose.

i have the face shop's mud nose pack, it doesnt work wonders for me (it also pull out my facial hair), but it works great for lurvey! so i gave it to him. ;)

oooh i wanna see what you hauled in! :P

i have the same problem as you.. ive tried mask like that but just doesn't work.. clarisonic does a good job of deep cleansing tho!

Tammy said...

Awww too bad it didn't work well! I heard a few good reviews but I think it really depends on the persona nd their skin condition. My blackheads are so close to the surface that I can scratch them off LOL (disgusting XD)
Thanks for reviewing this! :)

LOL@ the warnings. Hey your nose isn't that bad, you make it seem like we should be ready for an apocalypse!
Aw sucks that it doesn't work out, and you're totally right it's so tiny!!


mask normally doesn't help much... :(

anna. said...

Hahah you cracked me up with your warning lines. Ouch, I can imagine the pain it was peeling that since it ripped out your hair. That is not good! I never use this kind of peely nose mask anymore because I find it so painful and it doesn't seem to do much for me. I still have yet to find one that actually works.

haha, I ended up enlarging the photo. It kinda looks like my nose so I don't find it gross at all. It seems that the one I've tried only got rid of whiteheads and hair as well. I think I may be ordering from sasa soon. Any quick rec's?
