Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack Review:
When talking about skin problems, it must be endless. When I am done with annoying pimples then other problems come. Whitehead and blackhead. Oh dear! But I am not a kind of girl who gives up easily, I am a fighter (well, actually a lazy fighter, LOL). I am only interested with easy and simple treatment to remove comedo from my nose area, hence I like using nose pack once or twice a week. This way is quite effective as far as I use it regularly. My favorite product was Biore Pore Pack until another brand teased me with their new collection. That’s Tonymoly Tako Pore series that had just launched in July, 2017.
Tonymoly Tako Pore series are created to resolve annoying blackheads and excess sebum problems. Tonymoly released some products in this line and the first one that catched my attention was its Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack. No other reason, I was truly attracted with the wide and unique shape of the strip. Besides, when I read the ingredients list I found this nose pack has great combination of Marine Plant extracts and Madagascar Mud. Those are great to absorb excess sebum and a pore-tightening effect. Let’s see how it works!

Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack Review:
Tonymoly Tako Pore series have a cute black octopus as their icon. That black octopus is truly cute, actually one of the reason why I came across to this product, haha. I was a bit surprised that the pocket of this nose pack was quite big.
Well, I had already guessed that it would be a pretty big package since it promised a big strip too, but never thought that it was that big. On the back of the packaging, we could find the product informations in Korean and English.
Instead of having a complaint, I am very satisfied with what Tonymoly did for the package. It looks totally cute, easy to ripped off and informative.
The shape of the nose strip itself is already shown on the package, it is shaped like the octopus’s nose. It is big, wide and a little bit weird. I mean, the strip is unique and it is my first time trying a nose pack which has quite big shape like this.
The strip is made from a super soft cotton which I guess, will be comfortable even for sensitive skin. The cutout of the strip is perfect and fits my nose very well. At first, I thought it would be weird as the strip had a big and unusual shape, but I was wrong. Actually it felt comfortable and I enjoyed using it. The smooth side that adhered on my nose area could stick tightly and not slippery too.
This nose pack stayed perfectly and covered all of my nose area and the middle of my forehead as well. It is good since I occasionally have blackheads on the area between my eyebrows too. With that wide shape, of course I expected it to work better.
Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack has no scent in its strip. So, there is nothing to be worried especially if you have a sensitive nose. But personally, I would like if they added fresh and soft floral scents.
I peeled off the strip after leaving it on about 15 minutes. I touched my nose before peeling it off and the dried strip did not feel extremely stiff. The surface was dry completely but still felt a bit bouncy when I pushed down my nose. I had two things in my mind. First, it did not feel hurt to peel the strip off. And it might do nothing on my blackheads.
I was right for my first conclusion. I had no dramatic peel session with tears (LOL) since it did not feel hurt when I removed the strip from my nose. The strip could be peeled off pretty easy and did not leave any residue along my nose area. Surprisingly, I was wrong for the second conclusion. This nose pack actually worked very well!
Sorry in advance, the after used strip may look grossy on the picture since it is full of comedos. But hey, this is actually what we expected from this product, right? It pulled out a lot of comedos (both blackheads and whiteheads as well). Believe me, you will be truly satisfied when it happens to you.
I have to say that it did not do anything with my big pores and the excess sebum around my nose. I still got that area oily after hours. But it did not irritate my skin nor left redness around my nose area. It gave me a smooth effect after the strip removed. I didn’t get sticky nor greasy feeling too. This nose pack left my skin moist and did not dry it up.
Oh, I almost forgot. When I used this nose pack, I had a big pimple on my nose. I know, it’s not a good idea to use nose pack when you are having pimples. But I couldn’t help myself to clean a bunch of annoying whitehead and blackhead on my nose. So, I did it.
Fortunately, this nose pack worked very gently to my skin. Though the pimple did not get better, but at least I did not end up with bleeding skin, haha.
I have already used 3 strips of Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack and finally had my conclusion. This is a good product that I will recommend to anyone who has problem with blackheads and whiteheads and want a simple yet easy way to remove them.
This nose pack is suitable for all skin types. It may not work that well to control excess sebum or tighten pores, but it works nicely to remove comedos. The unique big strip is so gentle and enjoyable to use. And of course, the price is affordable.
I am not sure if I should buy the other Tonymoly Tako Pore products or not. But I am pretty sure to repurchase this nose pack again on my next order. Well, I can not say it removes 100% comedos on my nose, but it is almost there. This product is worth it!
