Satisfactory

Can be quite good at busting the heads off spots.

Largely ineffective at getting rid of my many blac...

My skin has always been really oily but over the past six months or so, I've noticed an influx in the amount of blackheads that I'm getting on my nose particularly and also across my chin and cheeks. I've tried various removal strips with varying levels of success but nothing has really done...

“A clever idea”

published 26/10/2011

More hygienic to use on spots than fingers

Not as effective on blackheads as I'd hoped

I read about a blackhead remover on Dooyoo a while back, and was intrigued by the concept, but thought no more of it until I was browsing in a Body Shop store and saw this one for sale. At only £3 I felt it was a bargain - even more so when I used my Body Shop card and got an extra 10% off. The...

“Zap that zit”

published 01/06/2011

easy to use

can be too big

We all know we shouldn't pick at spots but on the same token walking round with big blackheads and spots on the face are rather unsightly. Not so much a problem now but I had quite a few black heads as a teenager which led me to discover this little device by body shop. The black head buster...

Doesn't always work, time consuming

Blackheads are disgusting, but unfortunately I am prone to getting them on my nose and chin, which is why I decided to try this blackhead remover tool from The Body Shop. At just £3.00 it is £5.00 less than the Tweezerman blackhead remover that I'd had my eye on and as I am a regular customer at...

Does not work

The Product Two ended metal device for removing blackheads and whiteheads. Has large and small metal hoops/rings at either end. Cost £4.00. My Opinion I have seen these devices on sale in many places but being considerably older than a teenager I had not thought I would have had need of one...

~ Why I Bought It ~ I bought this after I saw it in the body shop and I was intrigued by it - I wasn't too sure what it was or how it worked so I asked the shop assistant who couldn't recommend it enough and she explained how it worked and everything and I thought it sounded great and I ended up...

It does work!

Leaves skin red and weird for a few minutes

I've spent years trying to get skin clear of blackheads and found nothing has worked. One day I saw this little tool and thought, hey this actually might work. I've only ever used facial washes and creams but never any instruments of mass blackhead destruction on my face. This tool I purchased...

“Body Shop Black Head Remover”

published 26/06/2008

Removes Blackheads

Leaves red marks, unclear how to use it.

I was recommended this by the staff in the Body Shop when I explained that I get the occasional blackhead and wanted to do something about it but didn't really want to spend a fortune on their lotions and potions. It is essentially a metal stick about 10cm long with a metal loop on either end...

Maybe leave scarring, it hasn't happened to me yet...

I walked intoThe Body Shop yesterday with a massive list of blackhead/spot treatment things and I came across the double ended blackhead remover. Well, it gets rid of blackhead and blemishes so I thought this should save me a few bob! Actually I brought everything on my list, spent £40 but the...

“A really useful tool”

published 26/05/2008

Does exactly what it says it will

Not 100% effective in all areas

I have found this product really useful and effective over time (although it did take me a while to learn how to use it), and it's so much better than any of the lotions or scrubs out there, more so beacause it's just a onetime investment. It works really well on warm, clean skin, and it simply...
