Birchbox Breakdown

For too long, stubborn blackheads have evaded our best offensives, digging in their oily heels in the face of every cleanser under the sun. Not now. Like its namesake device, this award-winning vacuum cleaner™ gel sucks the grime right out of our pores. The results are as satisfying as they sound. What’s more, it does it all without abrasive agents—or painful extractors. This cleanser is also part of the dr. brandt® Exclusive Clean Up Nice Kit, loaded with products to smooth, detox, and even skin.

How it Works

This at-home treatment from celeb dermatologist Dr. Brandt uses silicone dioxide, a natural mineral powder that draws out sebum and dirt like a magnet. Proven blemish-busters salicylic and glycolic acid work to de-gunk pores, while ejitsu rose tightens them after the fact.

How to Use

Here’s the fun part: Two to three times a week, apply a thin layer of gel to affected areas after cleansing. Let dry 5–10 minutes—or until it turns a chalky hue. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. In about two weeks you’ll be all, “Blackheads? What blackheads?”

works like magic!

I received this in my subscription box a few months ago -- and I love it! I've always struggled with blackheads, and this is the most effective solution of those that I've tried. Highly recommend!

Seriously - no more pores!

I am 44 and it seems like my pores have taken in a life of their own. Love this because it really works to minimize the size. I bought the full sized product as well which seems to last a long time. Definitely recommend!

Not good!

This mask stuck to my skin and the little hairs on my face. I could not get it off! Little pieces were on my cheeks for a couple of days!

fantastic

im frequently trying new masks and products which target my pores. This is fantastic. It really within three uses starts to take care of your black head. Is gentle enough for sensitive skin, doesn't leave skin red. No strong scents. Worth the price!

Good but not great

Didn't feel like it "pulled" out my minor blackheads but seemed to prevent new ones from forming as soon as normal.

Pore Cleaner

I used this only once, so I am not 100% that it is to blame, but my face seemed to break out after using this. I dont know if it was because it was doing it's job by cleaning things out or if it was just an irritation. I know that it got really great reviews from others, but I just wasn't super impressed by it.

Great

I loved this product sample because you can put it only on the affected areas and it gives you results like getting a facial at a salon. It pulls black heads and whatever else may be in your pores.

Broke out after using
Sampled

I used this mask on my nose and cheek area, as I have trouble with blackheads there. It applied easily and tightened as it dried. I left it on for the recomended amount of time, and rinsed it off as directed. My pores did look slightly better... but I woke up the next morning with a bright red bump on the tip of my nose. I had no sign of it prior to using the mask the night before, so I think there might have been some irritation or blockage from the mask.

SO so

I have always battled blackheads on my chin and nose, I even use a clarisonic and can't seem to get rid of them!!! this didn't seem to make much of a difference for me but otherwise it is a decent cleanser!

Pricey

I have only used this product about three times. I have noticed fewer blackheads, and that's always a plus. I probably would have better results if I used it more often. I will keep using it and see what happens. The huge problem with this product was the price. I'm not sure I would pay that much for this. I do hate my blackheads, and if I see a huge change in the next week or so, then I will consider purchasing. Otherwise, there's no way I would pay this much for getting rid of a few blackheads.
