it actually WORKS!
on 11 January 2014
From one very cynical buyer to another (I assume you're at least *slightly* cynical or you wouldn't be paying so much attention to the reviews...) let me assure you - this is DEFINITELY worth the surprisingly little amount you're about to pay for it.
I don't suffer with particularly bad skin or acne problems, however I occasionally get little outbreaks of blackheads around my chin, and was looking into similar products in the high street. I picked up a product that was practically identical to this one, read the back of the package, then looked up at the shelf where the price sticker was.... wait for it.... TEN FREAKIN POUNDS?!?! I put it back and pretty much sprinted out of the well-known-high-street-chemist-named-after-a-piece-of-footwear.
I then did what any self-respecting shopper with an internet connection would do, and searched online. I'm just going to assume this is exactly your story so far and answer the nagging questions I had before clicking "add to basket"
1. Is this item going to be flimsy and cheap feeling? A: No. it's made of metal, has a good weight to it, won't bend easily, and is properly moulded so no sharp jagged bits to accidentally cut yourself with.
2. Am I just paying for a tiny stick? Cant I do the same job with the end of a bobby pin or something? A: Nope. for a start, you're not just getting a tiny stick - the tiny stick comes packaged nicely, and even had a little notelet saying "enjoy your cheeky product!" which was a nice touch. And NO, you cant get the same results with a bobby pin - the curved ends of this tool are just the right shape and size for the job.
3. Will it work/will it hurt? A: it works great! many other reviews have given in-depth instructions, so i'd recommend a read through, and in my experience it doesn't hurt anymore than popping a white-head spot - as long as it's ready to go, there should only be minimal pain. If it's hurting a lot then you should stop.
4. What abo- STOP ASKING QUESTIONS JUST BUY IT! it's great, i promise. go on. click "add to basket"
*UPDATE* Thanks for the positive comments, people :) A little update for you - this has become the most useful tool in my arsenal - I would still really recommend it!!
