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.

meh
Purchased

I was hoping for it to work easier/be more effective. I know you have to take a hot steamy shower prior to using it to open pores, so I showered, I applied a hot wash cloth, and still, I couldn't make it work. I read the instructions carefully, but it didn't work as I hoped. Maybe it's not for my skin, I dunno, but I am a bit disappointed. I will practice a bit more, maybe I'll figure it out. It was worth the try though.

Very harsh
Purchased

After reading the reviews, I had high hopes. I don't have a terrible problem with blackheads, but do have some small ones around my nose and chin. Using this product actually seemed to make my skin worse. It was very harsh, didn't work well for me, and actually seemed to cause me to break out.

cool little tool.
Purchased

Okay, so I was kinda iffy about this but it is actually awesome. Really have no idea how you could use it for blackheads and to be honest I use it for a hundred different things. Just a neat little thing to have.

not worth it
Purchased

The best thing to do is to leave blemishes alone.. i usually can't myself, but at the end of the day if you are going to pick it, this tool isn't going to help much.

A little tricky
Purchased

I couldn't get the same results my facialist does. The movement for using this is a bit hard to get down, sometimes I just felt like I was taking my face. But I still removed a lot of gunk. It really satisfied my need to poke and prod my skin, and I felt a lot better knowing I wasn't introducing bacteria into my pores.

great

A great tool to have and handy especially for occasions of all kinds helps you achieve extra clean without spreading more bacteria but definitely sanitize before and after each use!

not that great

This tool doesn't clean out my pores like I wanted it to and it's kind of painful. I am pretty disappointed.
