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.
This little thing is amazing. It eases blackheads and whiteheads right out with barely any trauma to your skin. Helps if you take a hot shower or wash with really warm water first to soften and open the pores. It won't get everything - if it's deep in there, you're going to have to rely on good old salicylic acid. But everything else just slides out, no gross marks or redness.5
I find it very hard to use the tool effectively, and out of frustration end up turning back to old fashioned popping. That said, in the area around the bottom sides of the nose near the nostrils, it works very well and easily. I expected it to work similarly to what i've experienced when getting a professional facial done, don't expect that. There is obviously a lot of learning and skill that is required to use this tool effectively, but it is high quality as expected from tweezerman products.3
This tool is a great investment for problem zits and blackheads without using your fingernails and damaging your skin.
Once in awhile I can get this to work like it should, but a lot of times I end up going back to my finger popping ways. I probably would not repurchase this if I lost the one I had.3
No instruction have tried to useitwith nothing to show foriy3
I have an issue with blackheads in my t-zone and on my chin. This tool has eliminated my problem. It is very effective. The only issue I have had so far was it bruised my nose a little bit. But that was mostly my fault because I kept going over the same area. Great tool to have in your makeup bag!5
people are saying they "don't see the purpose" or "i don't know how to use this". but this is the best thing i have. it pops pimples really well and won't put more germs on you. if you don't know how to use it, look it up5
My son is 14 years old and I definitely need this for him!! Thank you Birchbox!! I absolutely love this!4
Nothing wrong with this tool but didn't really see the purpose. Maybe I'm not using it correctly but i didnt really see the need for it4
