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?”

Good but not great
Purchased

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

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.

This product worked really well for me. I like that the color changes so you know when it is time to wash it off. It left a refreshing and cooling effect. My skin felt cleansed and pores felt smaller.

Just okay.

It feels cool when on and I like that it dries blue, but after using it several times I didn't notice any difference in my skin. At all.
