Most Helpful Positive Review Blackhead Eliminator
I love this tool. I use it mainly on my nose to get rid of tons of blackheads, and it works way better than my fingers ever could. I usually use it after washing my face when the sebum is softer because of the steam. If you're not careful though you can scrape the top layer of your skin, so don't drag the tool. I haven't used the larger end that's for popping whiteheads yet so I can't comment on that, but if you have whiteheads I can imagine it would be super helpful.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not Effective
Even with steaming my face so the pores open up, this still breaks the skin before it extracts anything. It struggles to clear out large whiteheads (closed comedones) without having to press so hard that it damages the skin.

Kat from Fargo, ND
I have used different skin extractor tools throughout the years but always come back to this one. I like the design of the extractor circles and its small enough to use in the crevices of my nose.
Told my daughter she wants one

Glad to find this in the store
It's not worth it
Lis from TX
This didn't work at all! None of my pores were all good
LOVEbph from Minnesota
I haven't really figured how to correctly use this tool, because the instructions are vague. However it did seem pretty self explanatory when I bought it. I just think the design of the product is a little off. I think the ends need to be a little thinner to really do its job. It has popped a couple of the bigger zits but it doesn't work well on black heads or smaller zits.
Terrible! Very Sharp! Do Not Buy!
Nancy from Springfield, Va
This is the worst extractor tool ever! It's very sharp and breaks the skin easily with very little pressure. Feels like it needed more sanding to smooth out the sharp edges. Can't even return it since it has been used and the package has been thrown away.
Morgan from new york
I use this to get rid of blackheads. It works great to get dirt and oils out of skin but be careful using because it can damage your skin.
DO NOT BUY!!!

You will SCARE your skin!!!!!
Good way to injure your skin
Ashleigh from AR
This is horribly designed. the ends are flat so it just digs into the skin when I try to use it. Absolutely useless in terms of removing blackheads etc. Save your money and buy one with rounded ends.

I thought the small holes would make it more useful than a similar tool I have, but I haven't had much luck with it. Maybe I'm not doing something right.
Busy Bea from Florida
I live in a humid climate which contributes to more frequent break outs. I originally bought this product for myself. My teenagers saw the improvement in my skin and asked what I did to make the improvement. I bought one for each of my teenagers to use. Wish the shaft was thicker so it would be easier to hold.

It did not work.
Skin clearing tool
Emily from Muskegon
LOVE!! This tool gets it all off your face
Too large of holes, doesn't work
Arrows Babydoll from Woodland
Neither side of this tool works as the holes are too large
Amanda from Indiana
unfortunately this tool didn't do much but rip my skin up with even the slightest of pressure, it seems like the edges needed to be sanded down/ rounded off. id use any of the other options ulta has to offer (and have, and loved) than this tool. and it really didn't do much for my blackheads either.
Just be careful with pressure!
Giana D from Memphis, TN
I like the design of this tool better than the ones that look like loops because they don't bend under pressure, and you don't have to drag across the skin to get to pus out! I'm sure if you press *too* hard it would break the skin, so just be aware of how sensitive or thin your skin is. My skin is pretty indestructible, so this is perfect for nightly use on my nose and on little whiteheads that pop up unexpectedly. I haven't noticed scarring from it either!
Sophia from DE
I wasn't a fan of this tool. I steamed my face before using it and when I used it nothing came out of my face and it made my face very red.
Not the worst, not the best
Gabrielle from Columbus, OH
It is very small which is helpful, but the way the little hoops on the ends are constructed,you have to press very hard to extract.
Does what is said a it does!
Karlret from Kansas
First tool I've ever purchased. I've been dying to try it and finally purchased it. It works well!
Anjee from Minnesota
This works for large white heads but I haven't gotten it to work for small zits or black heads.
Openings way too small
jeniam from WI
Openings on tool very small. It is extremely difficult to see what you are aiming for.
Don't waste your money
Ro from ND
I bought it for my daughter to help in removing blackheads. You have to press so hard that it hurts and even then it doesn't work.
Worst Clearing Tool
Samantha from Cleveland
Please don't waste your money. The shape and size of the tool makes it too painful to extract anything, nor does it do as good of a job as a tweezerman clearing tool.
Annabelle from Los Angeles
Works fine for skin clearing.
Have to know when to use it and what pimples to use it on
Megan from Lapeer, MI
I bought this tool a few years back. I love it, but you have to know how to use it and what kinds of pimples to use it on. Otherwise, if you press too hard to try to extract a pimple that is not visibly ready, it can really damage the skin around it. Also have to know what angle to use it at to properly extract!
Beth from Kimball,MI
Does not work as it should. Causes more damage than good.
