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.

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.

Pretty good
Purchased

It works on most blackheads, but has issues when using on whiteheads. Still better than doing it myself and causing a scar.

I love this tool! It gets blackheads out where my fingers can't. And it's a clean way to get black heads out.

The Right Tool for an Unflattering Beauty Task
Purchased

Clearing out surface-level acne blemishes is, unfortunately, a regular part of my skincare regimen, despite a rigorous cleansing and treatment routine. Thanks, genetics. However, this tool is just what's needed to quickly and effectively remove white- and blackheads without risking infection or irritation. The tool itself is small, easy to handle, easy to clean, and very sturdy, as befits the Tweezerman brand name.

Shape not quite right

This tool works on larger blemishes, especially after a good steaming to open the pores. However, the shape makes it hard to apply enough pressure to clear out smaller ones. If it were more narrow, perhaps pressure could be applied more evenly.

Amazing tool
Purchased

Loved using this tool, works great and is easy to master. Just have to say could you package this small tool in a more person proof package? Thought that part was complete overkill.

Recieved this yesterday in the mail. Used last night. The glory!! No more of the fingernails! No more gouging, no more gross bacteria, no more inaccessible impossible black heads. Sure, there are still the tough ones that you have to let come to the surface first, but once they have you can clean them up with no fuss and little flare-up.
I'm going to buy this for any teenager I know. I wish I'd had this 10 years ago.
