Hygienic and quick
This is an amazing tool. I used to use my fingers and nails to remove the pimples and blackheads I got. Sometimes with little success, some pain and nasty looking nail indentations. Now a quick press with the pimple and blackhead remover, I'm done.
My parents and the odd friend mostly are happy to let me remove the nasties from their skin. I know, it's kinda gross, but it's SO satisfying to squeeze and get the gunk out.

A Beauty Must Have.
I having been using this Manicare Pimple and Blackhead Remover tool to remove my pimples when it comes to the surface, I wished that I discover this tool earlier because I not much pimples than I used to. This tool does an great job at removing my pimples without any redness and pain from removing my pimples in sensitive areas around the face, specially on my nose. A must have for acne suffers. It also helps the acne scar or scars to heal more quicker. I will replace this tool when I need to get another one.

great handy tool
i use this on my nose, my inner cheeks and my chin. it works very well in removing blackheads and i am very grateful for that. i use it once or twice a week and it is absolutely satisfying to remove blackheads. be sure to be gentle when using this. after removal, i apply toner onto a cotton pad and wipe it on the areas that i have had blackheads extracted to close the pores

I really like this product. It is very satisfying removing the blackheads. But if you do it too much or too hard, it can be rough on your skin and leave redness which usually goes away by the next morning though. You have to know how to use it correctly and gently. And definitely not for dailiy use - I use this a couple of times a week after steaming my face to open up the pores, and remove a lot of the blackheads/whiteheads on my nose and chin. Then after that, I use a gentle exfoliating cleanser. Sometimes I get a bit carried away and frustrated if I can't get one out and press too hard, so you have to be mindful when using it - gentle. It really does get to the 'root' of the problem though. Great product.

This is a great little tool that is very effective and cheap... I've become the blackhead Nazi! I find that pressing down and gently dragging across the area is the most effective way of using it. It's great for getting those really hard to squeeze spots like the side of your nose and better at getting smaller blackheads. It can be a little addictive - but I use this all the time and haven't had any problems with damaging the skin or even red marks. An absolute must have!

Effective and Cheap
I got mine on ebay for $1 after running around shops and trying different products my whole life. The product is best used straight after a shower, which opens up the pores. After pushing gently on your nose you will be so surprised at how much the product gets out! But a word of caution do not use on a daily basis and make sure you use a product with sacilic acid in it afterwards to seal the pores and prevent infection or scarring.

I use this tool on the nose and chin only, to remove stubborn blackheads (ones that even strips can't get out) and it works soo well, and you don't have to apply much pressure for it to work. The best thing I've noticed since obtaining this wonder tool is that it doesn't leave a permanent mark or anything, and it's very sturdy.
Just keep in mind not to over do it though, and to clean it after use to stop the spread of bacteria etc..
If all else has failed, then this is the remover for you!!

I discovered this little tool a few years ago & have never looked back! Fantastic on blackhead prone areas such as the nose, cheek & forehead. Can be addictive so proceed with caution & try to avoid overdoing it. Keep it in it's cover & keep the rubber plastic over the sharp end of the tool.
Also remember that it is a tool & should be washed & sterilsed after every use.
Boil a kettle of water & pour hot water into a bowl with a small amount of disinfectant. Soak for 10 mins & remove. place on a towel to dry & spray with Metho.
It's important to ensure you keep the tool clean to avoid spreading bacteria.
Also if you are extracting the rest of the blemish after lancing it with the sharp end remember to wash your hands first & either use gloves or wrap tissues around your fingers whilst extracting!

I bought this so long ago and was devastated when I thought I lost it when we moved house. So I ended up buying another one from a different brand and then found this one (isn't it how it always happens??). I'm ashamed to admit it but I'm addicted to squeezing anything that resembles a pimple on my face and many times it made me look like beetroot. This little tool is brilliant!! It removes everything without making your face extremely red and horrible. I'm not very good with the loop hole but the needle is absolutely brilliant. It's small enough to get into the pore and really get those suckers out :P You do have to be very careful as it is very sharp but if you're relaxed and you're concentrating it doesn't take long and it really really works. I actually find it a bit therapeutic lol :)
