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.
My first skincare tool and I love it!
This tool is a great investment for problem zits and blackheads without using your fingernails and damaging your skin.
I bought this for myself and my husband to use. I will probably have to purchase it again because he steals it often. It makes getting rid of blemishes so much easier and less painful.
i waited and
it finally came,i thought it never would,but hooray waiting patiently as always is a great reward
i have needed this 'cuzz even at 54 the zits don't stop
Made the mistake of using this on my 16 year old son. Now I have to hunt it down. No picking anymore. Does a great job once you really pay attention and use it correctly. Keep it clean, it's stainless steel it will last forever!
