Nose pore strips marketed for women are usually smaller and more expensive than those for men, even though there's no difference in how they work. Why pay more for the pink packaging?

I love using pore strips. There’s something deeply satisfying about the “rip off”. I also like getting a look at the nasties stuck on the strip. (Okay, some people may find it gross, but whatever. )

Here’s a quick tip I want to share about buying pore strips.

Whether you buy the regular white ones or the black ones (seen in picture), try to get the package that’s for men.

The pore strips for men and women are the same strips. The only difference is that the ones for men have a larger surface area. This not only gives better value for your money, but the larger strip is very helpful if you’re trying to get the blackheads and whiteheads on your inner cheeks.
