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?”

Does the trick

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.

I this works great!!
Sampled

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!

Didn't see results.

I used this a few times and don't feel like i really saw any results. It's light and refreshing, but don't think it did anything to my blackheads.

Absolutely Brilliant
Sampled

I have the largest pores ever. I have been searching for something to help with these pores for about 15 years between products and different regimens. THIS is the absolute best product. It shrinks my pores a considerable size in just one use (great for a fancy night out) but works so well over time without ever drying out my skin. My favorite BB product thus far.

Okay

This felt great while on, but it left my face red afterwards and I do not have sensitive skin. I don't feel like it did anything.

Other than turning blue, I'm not sure anything happened...
Sampled

Was intrigued to see what would happen…but the answer is not much. Tried it a couple of times, and other than making my skin a little tight/shiny, nothing much changed. No thanks!

Awesome vacuum
Sampled

I'm never sure of these types of things as my skin can be sensitive. Things that claim to clean pores blocks them instead BUT in this case, I was pleasantly surprised. It actually worked! I saw some black heads prior to using it and after taking it off they were no longer there! Awesome product.

Meh
Sampled

I don't know if it's just me but this product is meh. Yea it's cool that it was turns blue when it's ready to be rinsed off but I don't feel like it didnt do anything t thing for my pores or blackheads. I prefer my Murad blackhead removal duo over this.

Not perfect, but enjoyable
Sampled

It didn't get rid of my blackheads immediately, but it definitely helped, especially when I used it before using pore strips. The cooling phenomenon was really enjoyable.
