Tweezerman

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Open pores by taking a steamy shower or using a hot washcloth. For white heads, gently glide the angled wire over the trouble spot to release debris from the pore. For blackheads, use the opposite side’s long, flat loop to gently press out the gunk. Clean tool and skin before and after use.

Should have bought this a long time ago
Purchased

I suffer from bad adult acne and always picking at my face. I constantly break the skin and leaves my face even more of a mess. I know you're "not supposed" to pop your pimples, but no one wants to talk around with a giant white head. This tool I wish I knew about this tool years ago as it clears my pores right out and leaves no marks! Not even red marks! love it and would highly recommend to friends with bad skin.

Good for what it is
Purchased

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.

Skin Care tool

This one works great. Needed to replace one I bought 10 years ago. They last forever! Will see how long this one lasts.

Great tool
Purchased

I love this tool. Initially I didn't think it was very effective, but after washing it carefully and taking my time, I was able to use it effectively to clear out clogged pores.

Use with care.

This tool can be extremely useful and helpful with managing breakouts. However it is very important that you continuously sterilize it and that its used only when needed.

Not for anyone over 17
Purchased

If you're early-menopausal and still getting the occasional breakout, THIS TOOL IS NOT FOR YOU. Didn't do me DIDDLY-SQUAT in terms of helping with the small breakouts that my rapidly-dying hormones can still inspire. If you have giant whiteheads, sure, it MIGHT help, but it'll do more to bruise your skin than actually clean it.

Love the design
Purchased

I was so pumped for this product and wasn't disappointed when it arrived. It has a scored metal middle which is easy to hold, and the two ends are each easy to use. The whole thing is super easy to clean and disinfect. I love the fact that I can now keep my face cleaner by using this instead of my hands.

Tweezerman No slip care tool

I always pick at my skin when I have a whitehead or pimple (even though they say not to). This tool is simple and comfortable to hold and doesn't leave any marks. I wish I had this tool years ago.

Good quality and works great! I have dry skin and have very few break outs but when I do this item really helps control the problem area
