The Bioré® Deep cleansing Charcoal Pore Strip can give you the most satisfying feeling when you peel it off. It does seem to remove minor blackheads and the charcoal does extract some oil from my face. That being said, this product is somewhat expensive for a drugstore brand. It honestly doesn't do much to reduce your blackheads, but the feeling and placebo effect is all that matters. Overall, I consider this product to be one of those fun beauty items that doesn't really hurt your face nor your wallet.
