We’re all guilty of the occasional pimple-squeezing session. To make things worse, we use our fingers to perform the function. Not only is that an easy way to introduce new bacteria, but we’re practically asking for an acne scar. The good news? A little DIY facial work is okay if we use the right tools. This double-sided, no-slip skin care tool works to eliminate blackheads and whiteheads in a flash, leaving you with smooth skin.
There are a lot of disappointed reviews on here that the tool didn't work as they had hoped. This is a very high quality tool that works quite well for what it is. This isn't going to work on blemishes where the whitehead hasn't come up to the surface and isn't going to magically extract all blackheads if you don't take the time to properly steam your face and slowly work your skin.
That being said, I have still found that the shape of the narrower rounded side could be improved for maximum extraction. I can't ever seem to find a good angle for it to be effective. I prefer the flatter side for both whiteheads and blackheads as I feel it is more gentle and effective.
BE SURE TO STERILIZE BETWEEN USES!! I keep cotton balls and rubbing alcohol nearby to clean between each press on the skin. If I am able to pop a rather large blemish I will use the rubbing alcohol to gently dab the skin as well to disinfect. So far I have not experienced any redness after the fact except for the 20 minutes or so immediately after use.
did not work all that well for me. i was able to return with no problem. great customer service from BB.3
Great for pushing out a clogged pore that's been bugging you all day, or reaching that spot on your back. Tweezerman products come in nice, sturdy little cases. You can use this, disinfect it, then put it in the case so it stays clean. It's worth the money to keep germs off your face.5
Works well to clear stubborn clogged pores. Only complaint is the loops are a little large and Is somewhat difficult to maneuver in difficult areas4
I was hopeful about this but the results are just okay. I found it more painful than others I've tried. Luckily it is reasonably priced. And I do appreciate being about to sterilize the product. But don't get too excited.3
I can't help but want to squeeze a zit or blackhead if I get one, which usually ends up badly with bleeding and scarring. This tool is great because you can sterilize it and use it to help do some minor extractions without getting bacteria into your pimple or blackhead that can make swell and worsen. It is easy to use and really works wonders when giving yourself a mini facial.5
I'm the quintessential example of a picker -- and although we all know its a bad habit I cant help it. I use this tool as soon as I get out of the shower if I have any blackheads or whiteheads and it leaves zero scaring or marks. The worst part is a slight indent from the tool but it fades pretty quickly.5
I have been wanting one of these tools for a while. They are more expensive in stores so I am glad I found this on birchbox.4
So this is not something anyone like to discuss....but this is a great tool when you've got that blemish that just needs to be taken care of. Much cleaner and gentle than your fingers.5
This works just okay. It is better if you let the shower steam up the bathroom before you use it. I had pretty good luck on getting rid of the blackheads, but I feel like it made a few of the other blemishes worse. Make sure you sterilize it after each use!3
