Careful, you can spend hours with this tool!
on November 2, 2007
If you have black heads that won't budge (not even with a clay mask and a Biore pore strip), then this tool will help you. The double ended feature gives you the option to choose how much damage you want to do; one end is a thin metal loop (the end I mostly use), and the other end is flatter strip of metal that doesn't do me much good. One should be mindful that the same job can be done with skillful finger manipulation, but this tool is most useful in those hard to reach areas, like the corners of your nose. One slow swipe of this tool down the side of your nose will have you obsessing about every pore on your face, so use carefully with a light touch. You will be red afterward, so do it at night after a bath and a good face scrubbing. It is important to clean the tool before and after each use or you'll just spread the bacteria around, causing you to need the tool more. Don't dig to deep: you could easily create scars. Wash your face one more time after use (you'll see why) and then apply a soothing gel, like something with aloe, feverfew, or calendula.
