Let’s face it, we all have blackheads and most of the time they don’t bother us.

But, on occasion, we’ll catch our reflection in the mirror and see a particularly clogged pore and wish there was something we could do to minimise its appearance.

While you may have halfheartedly tried products like blackhead remover strips in the past, in recent years poor cleaning gadgets have surged in popularity on the beauty scene. 

Want to know what all the hype is about? We've discovered Amazon's currently best-selling face cleansing appliance and it's more affordable than you'd think. 

Why we rate it

The Blackhead Remover Vacuum Pore Cleaner is a rechargeable extractor tool that has five adjustable suction power settings, as well as four replacement probes for a deep cleanse, as each nozzle works to get into those hard to reach areas where dirt can get trapped in your pores.

The gadget is said to minimise blackheads, whiteheads and acne breakouts by unclogging blocked pores, as well as reducing the production of oil. 

The handheld device is also claimed to help smooth out and lessen the appearance of wrinkles.

The blackhead cleaner has a small LED display to show the power level, and when the battery life is running low a two-hour charge will be enough to top it up to be used for 180 minutes..

The Blackhead Remover Vacuum Pore Cleaner is easy to clean, simply remove each nozzle and wash with warm water before using again.

Plus it is super affordable, as it is on sale for £16.96, reduced from £29.99 on Amazon.

What the reviews say

Customers can’t get enough of the cleanser, as it has racked up over 23,000 reviews from shoppers, more than 70% of which have rated it between four and five stars.

Some have hailed the item as the “best gadget ever” and a “miracle” tool.

  • “Using this product took only 3-4 minutes and the results were amazing. I have oily skin and spend a lot on scrubs but this product is an electronic miracle.”

  • "I have been using this for a few weeks now. The product is extremely good and easy to use and has many various suctions which suit different people's skin type. The skin especially on my forehead is getting smoother and i can feel the effects straight away."

  • “I have had the product less than two weeks but already love it so much. As a man there isn't much we can do like in terms of healthcare and beauty routine wise. This product is definitely a keeper and one I will use regularly, hopefully once a week."

  • “Very happy with this little black head tool. It’s cheap and effective at clearing blackheads without resorting to using your fingers or any other instruments that might have bacteria on and infect the spot more.”

  • "I really love this. I strongly advise everyone to own one of these as part of their daily skincare. I have a shower in the morning and while my pores are open I go over my whole skin. It takes around one to two weeks to notice the difference. My pores are a lot cleaner."

However, some customers noticed their skin was sore or red after using the blackhead vacuum, and advised starting with a gentle suction before increasing the power levels, and not to go over the same area too often.
