Happy Tuesday! You guys!! I’m so excited because today I get to share my favorite blackhead products ever! I read the other day that when you start a new skin care regimen that it can take up to twelve weeks to see an improvement in blackheads. That’s three months!!! Are you freakin’ kidding me? Ummm, no thank you! I have been on a mission, a highly successful one I might add, to find products that remove my blackheads instantly! There was no way I was waiting three months to see results and there was no way I was going to make you guys wait that long either! I tried out tons of different products and these are the only products that I felt were worth mentioning. Here are my current favorites that are game changers!
Poppyo Vacuum Suction Blackhead Remover– $22.99 on Amazon
Bless the inventor of this machine! This vacuum suction literally sucks the blackheads out of your skin. Now nothing is a miracle worker so it didn’t cure every single blackhead the first time I used it but there was a HUGE improvement. I was shocked at how good it worked! You can literally see on the machine all the gunk pulled out of your pores! I’ll spare you the gross evidence photo but trust me! There are five levels of suction that you can use depending on how bad your blackheads are. For best results place a warm wash cloth over the area you plan to treat (for me it’s the nose) five minutes before using to really open up the pores. Or just use after a warm shower. Also, the first time I used this product my nose was red for hours!! So make sure the very first time you use this device to do it in the evening or when you don’t have to see people for a few hours! The machine comes with four suction probes total so you can also use this machine to smooth fine lines, massage, and exfoliate your skin!
Health and Beauty Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay– $12.79 on Amazon
I am in love with this clay mask! Apparently celebrities have been using this mask for years and they didn’t tell us! Use this mask right after you use the Poppyo Vacuum and it’s literally a game changer! These two products combined are pure magic! I have never in my life seen so few blackheads or such a clean looking face! I’m going to be honest, this mask is not glamorous! You mix the powder of this mask with equal parts water or apple cider vinegar and apply for 5-10 minutes depending on your skin type. After a few minutes this mask gets hard!! It freaked me out the first time I used it because I didn’t realize it was going to be so tight that I’d barely be able to move my face! I could barely talk! 😂 Even though the mask is a little uncomfortable it’s so worth it because it works like a charm! Remember when I said we weren’t waiting three months for blackheads to disappear?! Use this with the vacuum and you’re set! Like the vacuum though this mask will leave your face red for about an hour after you use so keep that in mind! I also suggest rinsing the mask off in the shower since it takes quite a bit of water to remove. And remember just like anything in life if you want your blackheads to stay away use these two products consistently on a regular basis. Everyone is different but for me I use these products once a week!
The last three products below are products I occasionally use now that my blackheads aren’t so bad.
Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips- $5.99 at Target
These are an oldie but a goodie! These have been a favorite of mine for years and I’m super loyal to them. They always work great at pulling out pesky blackheads and are great for times when you’re not struggling too bad with blackheads. The price point is also perfect!
Garnier Blackhead Scrub– $8.49 at Ulta
When my blackheads are bad I’ll occasionally use this scrub as part of my double cleansing routine in the morning. If you’re not sure about double cleansing I have a whole blog post on it that I encourage you to read. While the products I’ve talked about so far are great at removing blackheads instantly this scrub is something that helps prevent them and I think that’s important to have in your skincare regimen as well. After the first use skin is noticeable softer! The gentle beads are strong enough to deep clean but gentle enough where they didn’t irritate my skin!
Asavea Blackhead Extractor- $12.99 on Amazon
Like the Biore strips this blackhead extractor is another one of my favorites for normal blackhead upkeep! If my blackheads aren’t too out of control I’ll use either this or the Biore strips once in awhile. This product is helpful because you can apply to more than one area of your face. The mask comes with a spatula for easy application. Once dry just peel the mask off and if you’re anything like me look to see how much gunk just came off your face! Just make sure not to apply too close to your eyes because it will get uncomfortable to remove if you do!
I hope this helps you guys out! If you struggle with blackheads like me try the vacuum and clay mask together and I promise your skin will never look cleaner! Let me know what your favorite blackhead products are so I can give them a try! Hope you all have a great day!
