Review: Kai KQ Nose Pore Clear Pack Refresh from Artie

Hello friends! It's been a while since I last posted, and I wasn't even busy. I guess it's just one of those "Im not inspired to blog" days. Hehe. Well now I think Im going to start off the week with a product review. I'm talking about the Kai KQ Nose Pore Clear Pack Refresh that was sent out to me by Artie Beauty Cosmetics to try out and review.

I got the package sometime last week and has used two packs already, so now I will be able to do a review on it :) Hopefully you'll all find it useful. But first, lets get to know a little bit about the sponsor.

I got the item in more or less two weeks, something I consider as fast already knowing the Philippine Customs...

Good thing their was in instruction in English on their website, else I wouldn't understand the instructions on the back of the package because it was written in Japanese I think? Haha but nah even without instructions, I still know how to use it though I would prefer reading the instructions first before doing anything :P

What it looks like

I got one pack from the box and opened it. I found it very cute because of its shape. I'm not sure if you can see it but there's a protective sheet on the nose pore clear pack. Hmm I guess items that have adhesives or that stick has them right? Lol so anyways, I peeled of the clear sheet and placed the pack on my nose. I had it on for about 20 minutes, which is way past the ones in the instructions but I don't mind, I look cute in it duh. Haha :P

Lol what am I doing?

Now I'm not sure if I had it right, or could it be the other way around? I don't know which side should be up or down coz it wasn't on the site either. But I don't think that's a big deal. And so after wearing it for a good 20 minutes I had it removed and I was like O_O. Ewee didn't know my nose was this dirty yay.

Im not sure if its a good idea to show the photo but uhm I guess you won't mind? Haha just be aware that its sort of yucky to see it :|

Yes, that's how dirty it is. You can see the dirt that were on my pores, mostly whiteheads. Although I can't really say that my nose was super clear after using it, but I'm sure that it looked more clean than before, seeing these dirt on the nose pack.

The Good Thing:
   ♔ Cute packaging, with bubble wrap for security and protection.
   ♔ Has 10 pcs. in one box, which is quite a lot.
   ♔ Very affordable for a box of 10 pcs.
   ♔ No strong smell.

The Bad Thing:

   ♔ Doesn't stick that much, less adhesive in it.
   ♔If you have oily skin, it won't stick properly.

I must say that I really love this nose pack. I have tried a local one here and the result was nowhere near this product, so I'm very happy with it. The only problem I had was because I had oily skin, it won't stick easily. I had a little problem sticking it into my nose, but after a few tries I finally managed to have it stay up there :P

    Quality : ♔♔♔♔♔ (4/5)
    Comfort :  ♔♔♔♔ (5/5)
    Affordability:  ♔♔♔♔ (5/5)
    Overall Rating:  ♔♔♔♔♔ (4/5) - I LOVE it :)

If you want a good nose pack that is not harsh on your wallet, then I suggest that you try the Kai KQ Nose Pore Clear Pack Refresh from Artie Beauty Cosmetics. One box costs only $6.99, which means its roughly 70¢ per piece. You can purchase this over at Artie's or click HERE.


  1. That looks like it works pretty well. And the packaging is quite cute!
    Hehe I think you wore it upside down, but it still works so I guess it doesn't matter. I use the Biore Pore Packs and those work great for me :)

  2. don't worry you wore it right. either way it will work. I use softymo from Kosé Cosmeport and it is good for oily skin.

  3. haven't heard of that brand yet. I will look into that :)

  4. ive heard about biore and people says it really does work. haha i have a feeling too that its upside down but since no photo was provided i had no way of knowing which is which. lol haha

  5. very good article that reminds me grabbing a few months to buysome very good products online at and I camequickly and without problems
