Daiso Nose Pack review - works better than the Face Shop's!
So you've read all the rave reviews about The Face Shop's white mud nose pack, and you're throwing your toys out the cot because there's no Face Shop near you and you have no friends that you can unashamedly beg/blackmail to grab you a tube.
Have no fear! MACnunu to the rescue!! or rather your friendly neighbourhood Daiso...whatever.
What they say:
I actually have no idea what they say, it's all in Japanese and the boy is too engrossed with playing Starcraft to translate for me! Hmph! But basically, it's your run of the mill peel off nose pack. Spread it on after a shower, wait for it to dry, peel it off and examine all the gunk it pulled out of your nose. Joy!
I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is a Daiso exclusive product which is not available anywhere else. The back of the tube says it's made in Korea (The Face Shop's country of origin!)
Daiso is a Japanese hyakkin, or 100 yen shop; same concept as North American dollar shops except the quality of the products is much better.
The even better news is that they have 11 branches in Ameeerika. Sorry fellow Canadians, I believe the only Daiso in Canada is the one here in Vancouver. If you're really desperate for a tube, email me and we'll see about a group order.
Water, PVP, Alcohol, Polyviryl Alcohol, Titanium Dioxide, Propylene glycol, Methyparaben, Allertoin, Allantoin, Polyquaternium 10, Disodium EDTA
What I say:
Like the Face Shop White Mud Nose Pack, you spread it on wherever it is that you have blackheads, breathe through your nose for the first minute to ensure you don't pass out from the fumes, wait for it to dry, then peel it off.
The Daiso nose pack is more liquidy consistency wise compared to the Face Shop one and spreads much easier.
I really feel that it works much better than the Face Shop one! It got out way more gunk, especially from the bridge of my nose! My nose was noticeably clearer afterwards. I can see skin! Hooray!
It also didn't hurt as much as the Face Shop one to peel off.
The only downside is that it still stank to high heaven.
What will a nose pack review be without the gory photos?
Yes it's $2, and some of you are gonna question whether or not it's safe to use blah blah fish paste. That's up to you to decide. I've used it several times already and my nose hasn't dropped off yet.
IMHO it's far superior to any other nose packs I've used before.
