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.
So I know that I'm not supposed to pick at my face - magazines even tell us not to look at ourselves in the magnified side of our beauty mirrors! - but who doesn't do these things? At least with this tool I won't touch my face with my hands which would only make things worse. And I use caution, not over-using it, only going for it with "the big ones", and clean it with rubbing alcohol before and after - as well as clean my face. Call it an emergency kit - or maybe a safety blanket, but it works amazingly well (best if you've steamed your face and washed it first so its soft and your pores are more open) so I'm thrilled to have it in my "arsenal."5
I was looking for an extractor, and this one works really well. I'm sure I'll use this for years to come!4
I can't wait to start using things to help get rid of all my blackheads. I haven't found anything that helps. Hoping this will get rid of them.5
This tool is awesome, especially for hard to reach places on my back. I try to avoid using it on my face because it can sometimes scrape off the skin (although I might be pushing down too hard). I love it and can't believe I didn't buy it sooner!5
For those of us that occasionally get a little bump on our face this is a lifesaver. It is easy to use and you don't have to worry about all the redness and pulling on your skin. Follow the instructions and the bumps are gone. Great for a pimple or a blackheads.5
Got this with points, was not disappointed! I love Tweezerman products. The ends are sturdy and do not bend. Great for cleaning pores without breaking the skin.5
I have always wondered what I could use to get blemishes out of my face and not leave a mark, well this is IT!! I am glad I added this to my collection.5
I love this product! It helps in getting rid of black and whiteheads. It's easy to use and effective. I recommend it!4
I like this tool because it doesn't leave scars on my face!!! I have acne prone skin and used to use my fingers, this tool is just so much cleaner to use! So easy to use.5
