I, like everyone else have these horrible little visitors from time to time that seem to take forever to leave. I usually try to pop them using my fingers which has never really worked too well.
I was kinda excited to try these tools to see how affective they were. I used the tool used for whiteheads and it was fairly easy to get the hang of. I took my time and repeatedly would drag the hooped end from the surrounding area of my pimple toward the pimple itself until it finally popped. Which took about 2 minutes.
I like using these tools in comparison to my fingers because these tools caused less irritation to my skin and it's a lot quicker. I purchased these at a discount.
This is a great quality blackhead/zit removing kit with a variety or sizes of tools and a cute little carrying case. The tools all work find and seem very durable as does the case.
If you're unsure of how to use it, make sure to watch some videos before you attempt because due to the type of item (not the quality or anything bad on the manufacturer's part) it can be easy to damage your skin if you don't do it correctly.
Make sure to heat the area first or preferably steam your face. Wash hands before using and make sure not to press too hard with the tool. Aftwards make sure to apply some antibacterial gel or tea tree oil to the spot area and wash the tool you used. I like to wash it with anti-bacterial soap and then rinse it under boiling water before leaving it to air dry.
Protip - Use this on blackheads no more than once a week to prevent injuring your skin. I'd advise to do it on a day when you can stay home as you can have some redness afterwards.
If you have deep blackheads like me, this tool might not work for you right away and will take multiple steamings and gentle easings of your blackheads.
The tools are great, but everybody's skin is different and it's necessary to make sure not to press too hard and to do what's right for your skin type and the severity of your blackheads.
Oh whiteheads particularly these tools are great for squeezing them without having to use bacteria ridden fingers. Would recommend, but use with caution!

I have never used a blackhead remover tool before so I do not have anything to compare this to, but after using this I highly recommend it. The Art Naturals Blackhead Remover Dermatologist Grade Kit comes beautifully packaged and the quality of the tools are sturdy. I have been using this on my nose to unclog my pores and it has been working amazingly. Please make sure to sanitize the tools before and after using it.
