3.0 out of 5 stars well made but too thick for me, August 13, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SC-1103-SSP Suvorna Whitehead / Acne Remover & Comedone Extractor (Health and Beauty)
i bought this and a lancet also from suvorna together, which makes less scarring because the lancet pokes a small hole for the acne to come out.

i used to have a lancet plus remover that i've been using like forever, but it was my mom's, so when i went study abroad i know i need to get my own. the one that i had has a thin wire loop as a remover, and i think this might have affected my opinions on the suvorna remover, just kept that in mind for now.

because of all the good comments i saw so i decided to give it a try. i looked online on guides on using the suvorna specifically but the suvorna website is not up yet. i also read some websites on how a flat remover can provide more even forces on the surrounding skin of the acne which can cause less scarring, hence i was really excited to try the suvorna acne remover.

however when i try to use it on my acne, it's just too thick, even after i poke a little hole with my lancet. i tried to use the flat side to kind of roll around to get the acne out but it's just so thick and only a little comes out. so i thought since i had a thin wire loop remover before, i might as well try the loop side. so i try to angle the loop remover to push the acne out and the loop is just also too thick. because of the thickness, the force just isnt acute enough to push the acne.. so for the sake of getting the acne out to avoid inflammation i just had to use my fingernails, the old fashioned bad way.

the suvorna produce is well made, very fine material used, the traction on handle is very nice, and it even comes with a very fine classy holder. but since the most important part - the two remover is so thick, it just doesn't do a good job in removing the acne. it'll be nice if it can be made thinner and light.

however, any potential buyers must be aware that this experience might be affected by my personal experience in the past in using a thin wire loop extractor. if you're used to a thick acne remover i think this will be a very good choice.
