Honestly I think the people who rated this poorly just did not use it correctly... I used this on a couple of white heads that were really ready to pop and this took them out beautifully and as painlessly as possible. It did not cause skin damage or indentation because well you're not supposed to even press that hard onto your skin! You have to use it when your pimples or blackheads are actually ready to be extracted!! I would buy this again because it works fine and it was really cheap.

SAVE YOURSELF THE TIME AND MONEY AND DO NOT BUY THIS. Seriously though, I was so excited to go home and use this. I tried the Tweezerman extractor a few years ago and it was amazing but I didn't want to splurge for it so I settled for the Revlon version. This does absolutely nothing. Not even one blackhead.

DON'T get this blackhead extractor!!! I left scaring on my face from where I was trying to extract plus it hurts more then a normal blackhead extractor (one with the lupes) I just got this b/c it was really cheap but I REALLY wish that I didn't cuz now i have these little red spots on my cheeks and nose from extracting... i hope they go away soon :(

This works to remove SOME blackheads. However, what some people think are blackheads on their nose are really just enlarged pores and nothing will come out of them no matter how much you squeeze or pick at them. Just saying from experience. I found that the end with a bigger loop does absolutely nothing except ruin your skin (and is the reason this product gets a 4/5) so I only use the small looped side. I noticed that it is excellent at extracting whiteheads from acne pimples without damaging the surrounding skin, but only if you are gentle. I also use the smaller loop end to remove sebum from my clogged pores BEFORE a pimple forms, which is why I hardly get any pimples. Using this tool is also a great alternative to picking at pimples with your dirty nails or fingers and if used correctly, it will hardly damage the surrounding skin.
For those that are saying this tool is crap, well, either you are not using it correctly or you are trying to extract something that isn't there.

No words can describe how awful this product is.

When I got home I couldn't wait to try this thing out. I took a nice, steamy shower and then also used a towel to steam my face and open up my pores. When I used this tool, I applied gentle pressure -like you're supposed to- and absolutely nothing. I changed the angle, moved from one spot to the next, and no blackheads came out.
Alright, so here I think maybe I should just apply a little more pressure. And viola, some blackheads come out. Some being a key word here. So, I disinfected it then put it away.
An hour later I came back in the bathroom and every part of my face that I had used the tool on was red. I guess I used too much pressure but the blackheads were not coming out without it.
I know it's really cheap, but still, a waste of my money! Hopefully these red marks disappear by morning...

you can do the same thing with a bobby pin, people.
;( don't buy this.

I jsut saw this on the feautured review page and have to say I am in shock so many people have tried this demon of a tool! lol Seriously I can understand people ahving the urge to pop their blemishes but using this to squeeze out clogged pores is the worst idea ever and can cause so many problems later. Doing it yourself with one of these jsut isn't the way to go to get rid of clogged pores and blackheads. I hate the ones I have but I use skicnare to do the job as most. Even when extraction is done professionally (which I did once in my life, still traumatized btw lol) it still hurts like a mother************!! I would honestly jsut about rather get a full body tattoo. On top of it it takes so long to ever see longterm results with it and your face is litreally 20 shades of bright red and purging lasts forever. So professionally done or at home this is jsut a big hell no imo.

This is a piece of junk. The thing is it's hard to maneuver. It also leaves indentations on your face. Do not use on soft areas of your skin. I was trying to extract a pimple on my cheek and it ended up scooping out my skin. I have this huge scar on my cheek now that still hasn't faded after 2 years. It's really deep and long too. I wished I had never bought this. Definitely do not use this on areas of your face that are noticeable.

Use this blackhead extractor and you are asking for scars and messed skin. You have to press hard on the loops and it leaves indentations the size of the tool on your skin. This is a piece of junk - Mine went in the trash can...

I wish there's some way to get rid of this product and get my money back. The metal on the loop ends are too rough and thick for it to be good at extraction. The small loop is too small and thick for you to see what's going on and the big loop is pretty much useless. Right now I am just using the small end and one finger to help me squeeze out blackheads, but I can do that with a q-tip. This product is really useless. I have tried the sephora 3-in-1 extractor and it's much better although it's still not the best. I am going to try the Suvorna 8 piece kit and see what happens.

A good tool to have. I find this thing very helpful for removing blackheads.

This isn't horrible. It got some clogged pores I'd been picking at with my fingers for YEARS, but it didn't clear the blackheads on my nose. It works very well on my face and forehead, just not the nose. I guess my next step is Tweezerman.

Holy crap... why why why why why did I try this?! I cleansed, did a mask, steamed, and then tried this little fellow for the first... and last... time. The little end is so little, like another reviewer said, you can't even see where it's covering. I used the big end on my chin and I could see stuff being extracted, but not much, and it made my skin red and irritated. I couldn't get anything out of my nose without pressing to the point it hurt and then I knew to stop. YUCK. What a waste of $5. I am not even going to bother trying a Tweezerman, not sure I like the idea of these at all for my sensitive skin!!

This is my first blackhead remover and all I can say is WOW! Why did I wait so long? I bought one at Big Lot's for 80 cents. Figured for that price, if I didn't like it, I am not out a lot of money.
I have always had a problem with blackheads on my nose and my forehead. Using an aspirin mask and a srub has helped but not for long. This works wonderful though. After I cleansed my face, I first tried it placing the larger end over the blackhead and applying gentle pressure. It worked. Wiped it off with astringent and went on to the next one. After a few of these, I tried something else (as I now see another review has done)....I applied gentle pressure and gently "scraped" it along my nose. Holy cow did the crap come out! After each swipe, I would wipe it off with a cotton pad dampened with Sea Breeze. When I was done, I wiped my entire face with Sea Breeze.
I have done this for 3 days now and I can see and feel an improvement. I used it this morning before a shower then used a scrub in the shower and that made a difference too. Next time after using it, I am going to try a peel-off mask to see if that makes a difference too. This is definitely a keeper and there is no doubt I am rebuying again!
A few tips:
For those who say it leaves a red mark, you are pressing too hard.
For those who say it slides off, you need to start with a clean face. If your face is oily, yeah it is going to slide off.
The best way to use it:
1. Cleanse face and rinse well
2. Steam for a couple minutes, even holding a hot wet washcloth on it.
3. Wipe your face with toner after words.
4. Try exfoliating after you use it as well.

This works fine for me. I also have the Tweezerman, and that one works slightly better, but I can get by with this one. Plus it's so much cheaper than Tweezerman's, so when I lose it I won't freak out.

At first I thought I was just using it wrong, but after seeing that a lot of other people can't get it to work, I know it's got to be the product. I'm one of those people with a ton of blackheads on my nose that just never disappear.This was my first blackhead extractor and I had high hopes that were quickly dashed once I used this. I just kept pressing and nothing happened. At least now I know about Tweezerman.

This didn't work well for me. It didn't remove blackheads. Waste of money.

This thing sucks. Thankfully I found it at Big Lots and only paid like 70 cents...but damn...what a waste of 70 cents. I don't even understand how they thought these things were going to work and then massed produced them for the public to torture themselves with.
I lost my Tweezerman one (or heck maybe it was even a Tweezerman-LIKE one but it rocked) a few months back in our move and have been mourning it every since. Guess I need to go spend the money and get one of those because Revlon's version sucks and blows.
