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 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. This cleanser is also part of the dr. brandt® Exclusive Clean Up Nice Kit, loaded with products to smooth, detox, and even skin.

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?”

Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner
Purchased

I have very sensitive to dry skin with large pores. This does tend to dry my face just a little bit so I'm only using it twice a week and only on my troubled T-Zone area. It does not dry my face as much as a biore strip does although it also does not clear all blackheads at once like a biore stirp does. I felt I noticed a difference after using it twice a week for 2 weeks (so really 4 uses before I noticed a difference). I find that if I continue using the product I don't see my pores becoming clogged as much. Also, you do have to shake the bottle a bit before using it or it comes out too liquidy. The price is a bit much, but if you're only using it once or twice a week it does last for a while. I would have given it more stars if it wasn't for the price and the slight drying effect.

It works!
Purchased

I ordered this product for the first time after doing some research . I have used it only twice and I have seen fast results, it really works. My husband is also using it on his nose and most of the blackheads are gone.
I totally recommend it.

Coolest Product Ever
Purchased

I tried this product because it was on Mollie Chen's Hot List for October. After, reading the description it sounded too good to be true, but I risked it anyway and I am so happy I tried it. At first the product just made loosened the blackheads enough to extract them, and now they are completely gone without extracting them. Super cool product

Has really helped with pore size
Purchased

I received this as a sample from Birchbox a while back. This is the first mask that has actually decreased my pore size on my face. This mask is gentle for my somewhat sensitive skin. Also does not dry out my face. A little goes a long way. I just put a thin layer on my face. Very happy with the product!

Pores no more

Love the way this feels on my skin. And it does just what it says, makes your pores diminish.Hoping if I keep using it they will go away completely.

Good job

I actually used this when I had an outbreak of a few pimples. I applied it just to the few pimples, let it dry and it took the heat and redness out of the bump and it dried quicker than usual. It didn't seem to work so well on my pores/blackheads..

amazing!

I loved this sample! Light mask but loved how it worked, my skin felt firm and clean. I love that it changed color to let me know when to rinse without being thick and cracking.

Redness and breakouts

This turned my face so red! I don't know what it is about this companies product, I typically don't have sensitive skin but all of the products I have tried from them have made me breakout or as in this one turned me bright red. I had to cold compress my face for more than 20 minutes to decrease redness

This did nothing for me

I was really excited to try this but it never seemed to actually do anything for me when I used it. I expected to feel it tightening on my skin or something but all it would do is dry and then I'd wash it off, and I never saw a difference in my skin. :(
