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?”

Great to use when I'm in a hurry. Dries fast, easy to remove and i feel that it gets a lot of the black heads out.

Vaccum

This slowly but surely cleared away most of my blackheads. I have a few still but I'm sure they'll be gone if i keep using it. One thing to note is that it dries to an opaque white color instead of blue like the directions suggested.

Leaves skin soft and pores smaller
Sampled

Immediately after removal, my skin is soft and my pores are noticeably smaller! You have to use it routinely to have long lasting results, but great mask before a big event or something.

I thought this product was okay - wasn't the best acne treatment I've ever used, but I liked it. Dries our your face just enough to help everything heal up and head out.

My husband and I have both been using this product to minimize our pores. I don't have very many visible pores as it is, but I do have some on my nose. I could tell a big difference just in a few days of using this product!
