Review || Skin18.com Luke Total Skin Solutions Nose Strips, Mugwort Nose trip and Lemon Tea Tree Nose Cleansing Strip

Recently I had received a package from Skin18.com. If you are not aware of the website, it is an Hong Kong based online retailer of Korean skin care. It is truly one stop destination of all things K-Beauty. They houses a wide variety of sheet masks at dirt cheap prices. They were all about the sheet masks and cool thing now is that they have added more feathers in their caps. Like these nose strips. I got two variants one Mugwort nose strip and another Lemon Tea Tree nose cleansing strip.




Both Lemon Tea Tree Nose Cleansing strip and the Mugwort Nose Strip is supposed to clean pores, remove black heads, tightens pore. Read all about the details of the product HERE and HERE

Packaging ~

Both the strips comes in a sachet. The strips are very very light hence the sachets are too. When I was clicking the pictures a gush of wind came through my window and blew the sachets away under the bed. The strip comes attached in a plastic strip.

Texture and Fragrance ~

It's a dry paper with one slight sticky side and one coarse side. You need to spray some water on the sticky side and then apply the strip on to your nose. I do not know how Mugwort smells but I do know how lemon tea tree might smells. These strips do not have any pleasant fragrance at all. They smell very chemically.

Ingredients ~

Skin18.com details about key ingredients but there is no other mention of what this is made of.

Both of them retail for $0.65.
Available at Skin18.com

Please clean your laptop/desktop screen properly if you want to see the tiny dirty blackheads of mine in the strip. LoL

My Experience ~

Honestly I had no idea about Mugwort so I used that strip on my husband's nose. I used the Lemon Tea Tree one. I cleansed my nose and sprayed some water on the strip, applied it and kept it for 10 minutes. When the water starts to dry the strip starts to harden on your skin and feels stiff. Not much that is unbearable. The feeling is like as if you have put band aid on your nose. I have a tiny round button nose so I was not able to cover all section of my nose properly. But people will sharp nose will not face this problem. When the time was up, pulled off the strip and it did manage to remove my black heads. Now do not get excited, it did not uproot those hard stubborn ones ( read comedone ) and some equally stubborn white heads too. But it did remove those tiny little hair like ones. My nose felt a bit smoother. I could actually make out a difference on what left my nose and what decided to stay behind. Let's face it, those stubborn ones needs some heavy hand extrusion. Take a moment and bow down to the pain during a facial session, which that sweet faced devil in disguise parlor lady gives you, to try to make your nose black and white heads free. I swear I almost hit and pushed each one of them. But still these ladies have the patience to keep coming back to my nose.

Next, the husband's nose. The Mugwort one applied nicely as he has better nose than me. This also smelled the same, and he was nagging constantly of why I was after his life. Pulled off the strip after 10 mins and same results. The hair like ones came off, but the stubborn was stayed behind.

So guys, if you want a light handed removal of your hair like black heads and not so stubborn white heads, go for these ones. They do a pretty decent job. For comedones, which require heavy handed extrusion, that parlor lady is your savior in devilish disguise.

Bye guys, see you all in my next post.
