Tonymoly Strawberry Seeds 3-step Nose Pack Review:
Admittedly, there are a lot of peel-off masks on the market, specifically those targeting black head removal. Even further, many brands have come out with 3 step solutions to black head removal. The reviews have generally been mixed, however the TONYMOLY 3-step Nose Pack seems to have the most positive reviews and since I am yet to find a mask that removes my blackheads I decided to give this one a go.

How to use:
Step 1: Wash your face, then take out the first sheet from the package and place on the nose; remove after 15-20 minutes.
Step 2: Wet the skin on the nose, then take out the second sheet from the package. Remove the transparent film and place the sheet on the nose. Press so it sticks to the skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes until completely dry. Remove starting from the edges.
Step 3: Remove the opaque film from the third sheet and place on nose. Remove after 5-10 minutes and pat the nose to absorb any remaining solution
My Skin Type: My skin is generally normal, but I’m prone to getting a lot of black heads and the occasional pimples around the nose area, with bigger pores around the corners of my nose
Tonymoly Strawberry Seeds 3-step Nose Pack Review:
The 3-step nose pack is easy and quite straightforward to use.
The first sheet is similar to a normal sheet mask, has two layers, and had a lot of product. Caution: the first sheet does not come with a protective layer so take it out of the package carefully. As I did not know this, I accidentally spilled a lot of the product that was left in the pack all over myself, so proceed with caution.
The sheet is easy to put on, however it doesn’t really stick to the skin, so you may need to pat it a few times and then try not to move your nose too much. I did not particularly enjoy the smell, which I would describe as an overly sweet chemical strawberry smell, but it was noticeable only for the first 1-2 minutes or so.
Around the 10 minute mark I started feeling a bit of a sting on my skin, but it passed quite quickly. After 20 minutes the sheet had almost completely dried (save the area around the corners and the tip of my nose) and it had even began to move around my nose and peel off at the edges.
It did not feel like it was doing anything, but maybe you just can’t feel when your pores open up? I did notice however that after removing the sheet the skin on my nose was feeling really smooth.
The second sheet is your classic nose strip, just white as opposed to black. A favorite trick of mine is to pull a bit (carefully, so you don’t damage it!), at the indents in the strip to make it fit better on your nose. The strip stuck right away to the wet skin on my nose, as opposed to the first strip which was a hassle to keep in place.
There’s also no smell to this strip. By the 20 minute mark the strip had tightened around my nose but not anything dramatic. When taking it off, I did notice that it had hardened considerably. Removing it was painful, not unbearably so, but there was definitely more than just a sting.
Since the sheet is white it was quite challenging to see the effect. It did pull out some sebum from the sides of my nose, which are my most problematic zones, and some from the tip as well. Looking at my nose I can see it pulled up some of the blackheads but not enough to actually take them out of my skin when I pulled it off, so now I just have some more visible blackheads. Yay.
The third sheet, similarly to the first one contains a lot of product. It does have a protective film at the back, but it’s more of a hassle to remove it with all the product dripping down as opposed to taking care of the mess. This sheet is also two layered, however in my case there was so much product so when I peeled of the film the two mask layers misaligned.
I managed to somehow fit them to my nose, but like the first sheet this one does not really stick to the skin, and it moves around a lot which is a bit annoying. I also feel like it doesn’t stick to the sides of my nose, which is a bummer since the mask pulled out the most from there, so this side would need the most treatment.
I didn’t feel any specific sensation while having it on, and removed if before the 10 minute mark as I got annoyed from it moving over the place and me having to realign it every two seconds or so. It also has the same overly sweet strawberry smell, which I could just not get used to.
When I removed the strip there was enough product left for at least two more applications, which I’ll leave you to decide if it’s good or bad. It left my nose feeling a bit sticky, and I don’t feel like my pores closed or minimized.
Will I repurchase? Probably not. While it did pull out some gunk, which is more than other masks have done, I know TONYMOLY sell separate nose strips which come out cheaper as opposed to this 3-step care.
I also feel that the first and third step didn’t really do that much, and I could have opened and closed my pores using traditional method such as steam and ice, which would also be less of a hassle since the first and third stripe just don’t want to stay still and get product all over my face. I do think that the second step of this product may be taxing on sensitive skin, but it seems to fair well on normal skin.
My final verdict is that I would probably consider purchasing individual TONYMOLY nose strips, or try other brands of 3-step care, but I will most probably not come back to this one.
