The Best Nose Packs For a Squeaky Clean Nose


We all know the frustrations one can get when dealing with pesky blackheads. Those irritating little dark impurities that reside on the crevices of your nose are not easily removed and certainly put up a good fight. Fortunately, our friends in Korean beauty have come up with some of the best nose packs on the market that keep blackheads away!

A nose pack is typically an adhesive strip, which is put on the wider part of the nose, left to dry, and then pulled off. Usually, the deeply embedded black and white heads, excess sebum (the natural oil that moisturises and lubricates our skin) and other icky stuff that have built up under the skin are pulled out and can be visibly viewed.


There are very few things as satisfying as seeing those little blackheads sticking on the strip. It's equivalent to the satisfaction of popping a pimple without the scarring and scabs (ew!). Plus, it leaves your skin silky smooth and fresh for the day, especially when using the best nose packs. 

A good nose pack should be:

1. Effective: You want to make sure your nose pack really pulls the sebum and blackheads out of your nose, not just a fun thing to wear and put on Instagram.

2. Applicable on sensitive skin: No product should make the user want to plunge their face into a bowl of ice cubes. Your nose packs should have ingredients that won't irritate your skin.

3. Non-comedogenic: You don't want a nose pack that causes more problems than it claims to solve. Any nose pack that causes you to break out after usage should be banished to consumer hell.

4. Easy to use: One shouldn’t have to hop on one foot, holding a broomstick in one hand while reciting the poems of Lord Byron to use a nose pack. Apply, remove, soothe-three simple steps that can be achieved by even the dimmest user.

5. Be safe. This is very important since some products are laden with harmful chemicals to make them more efficacious. A good nose pack should be safe to use, so that one doesn’t add skin cancer to the list of medical problems he or she has.

Also, nose packs do not control oil production or production of blackheads. They are purely a removal system and do nothing to correct the underlying problem that caused the breakouts. Permanent acne treatments are available and dietary changes might be needed to regulate the excess sebum being produced by the skin.



AprilSkin Pinky Nose Pack comes in a three-step kit and contains some seriously cleansing ingredients like marine collagen, pink clay, water and charcoal which is widely known as an effective facial cleanser.

The cotton sheet is soaked with the toner liquid, which is then microwaved for twenty-thirty seconds and placed on the nose to open up the pores and loosen the blackheads. After ten minutes, the sebum on the surface of the nose is wiped off and the charcoal-infused clay pack is applied for step two. The clay mask is allowed to dry before it is pulled off, leaving the pores clear. After removing the dried charcoal mask, the dry skin is moisturised by applying the collagen essence, which is the third step. It closes the pores and helps to control sebum production.

For continued sebum control, a hot towel can be applied on the face for five minutes before use or after showering. This opens up the pores and makes deep cleansing effective.

The face is dampened with warm water before application. The strips are saturated with the gel, it is applied on the face, and left on for ten minutes before is it removed.

Nature Republic’s Bamboo Charcoal Nose and T-Zone Pack is a naturally formulated, two step system comprising of a carbonated toner for opening up the pores and a charcoal mask pack for deeply removing black and whiteheads and other impurities from the pores. It is packed with feelgood ingredients like water, cranberry, blueberry and jujuba fruit extracts, castor oil, which are great skin restoration oil and deep moisturiser, charcoal powder and silica powder.

The first step is applied after washing the face with warm water to open up the pores. One of the provided cotton sheets is soaked with the toner liquid and applied on the nose for 10-15 minutes, after which it is slowly peeled off and the excess sebum and blackheads are cleaned off with a cotton swab. The opening toner can be used alone, in which case the face is washed with cool water after removal of the cotton sheet and patted dry.

The second step involves smearing the charcoal mask all over the nose and allowing it to dry, a process, which typically takes 10-15 minutes. The charcoal mask is peeled off, leaving refreshed, cleaner skin and tighter pores behind.

This product is mild, and thus is excellent for people with sensitive skin that cannot handle other harsger pore cleansing products available. It is ideal for oily skin types, but can also be used by combination skin types.

This product is quite popular in Korea, the skin care hub of the world. It comprises a standardthree-strip kit system.

After cleansing the face with warm water, the first strip, which is a pore heating sheet, is placed on the nose and left for fifteen to twenty minutes. It is supposed to heat up the skin to facilitateremoval of the blackheads. The strip is removed and the excess gunk is wiped off with a cotton swab.

The next strip is applied after wetting the bridge of the nose. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and then remove slowly, peeling from one end to the other. The strip will be dry by then, and fast pulling will only mean pain and chafing for you.
