This is the best tool that I have come across to extract blemishes. It does not cause a lot of irritation and gets the job done better than anything else that I have tried. After doing some research on this product, I was hoping that it would be THE product that would be able to extract some of the blackheads that have been on my nose and chin for years and years. Although, I will saw it probably took out some, I definitely can't get to all of them with this tool. Overall - this tool is HIGHLY recommended! I can't imagine that you would find something better

I'm not sure if it's just me or whether or not the tool isn't suitable for me or something, but this just doesn't work for me. I have a ton of blackheads on my nose and this tool no matter how I use it, even after a shower and washing my face, just doesn't seem to remove them at all. It only leaves sore red marks shaped like the tool ends on my face, and even with pimples it doesn't do anything. I've watched multiple reviews and tutorials and given it many tries, but I don't think it's for me!

Good B.P. applicator
By Ann M.
Comments about Professional Blemish Extracting Tool:
I've gotten the most use out of this tool by using it to dot 5% PC benzoyl peroxide on pimples. I've squirted some bp from the tube it comes in into a small, opaque jar that I received from a gift with purchase from another company. I dip this in and use it to distribute product. No waste as with using Q-tips, and solved the problem of the drippy benzoyl product. I've been SO prone to picking - and making things way worse - that now I'm doing this instead. 5 stars for this reason alone.

Not a good one
I am no novice with come done extractors, and I was not impressed with this one. The loop is way too thick to extract blackheads for me. I was really hoping this one would be good as my travel one, but it was not to be.

I was hoping...
That this was the answer to removing blackheads without looking like you've been digging your nails in your nose! Thankfully, I avoided that look, but every time - EVERY time I used this, I ended up with awful breakouts in that area. I cleaned the tool with alcohol before and after, so maybe it was user-error. I stopped using it so it justs sits in my drawer.

Amazing product wish you were here in my teens
By CATHRYN B.
Ok I have hit my 40s and still suffer the occasional breakout. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product where have you been. No scarring and so good I bought one for my husband who loves it. He was just saying this is going to be the best for our boys when they get to puberty. Why was this not around when we were young it would have prevented some of the scarring I see now. So good we have just misplaced both so reordering. I bought based on the great reviews by other customers and honestly so impressed!!!
Sometimes I have used this it worked fine, but most of the time it did not help at all, or even made the pimple look worse. I read the instructions and watched the video explaining how to properly use the tool, but I just haven't had consistent results from it. Of course my results could just be due to user error, but I'm just going to stop using it to avoid potentially making things worse.
By Jessie N.
I always had trouble keeping my hands away from my pimples. But this is a miracle product! Used it only once on 2 pimples then applied the c15 booster and the next day they're gone! My mind is blown. Love you guys and your products. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
easy use for me
By brenda s.
I have had this one pore on my chest that was filled and I haven't been able to clean it out. I've cleaned it every time I washed my face and applied masks but nothing would clear it out. One time use of this worked pretty well. Much easier though cause it was on my chest (not sensitive to more pressing) but happy that it worked so easily.
By Kay G.
Whenever I have a facial, they always put a steamer on and apply a mask to my face. The steam helps soften the skin to make extractions easier.so for the people that are getting red spots or no results, try steaming your face to oxygenate or apply a mask prior to performing the extractions.
More instructions please!
By H. R.
This is a miracle tool when used on pimples which are nearly ready to go - really gets ALL the gunk out, especially compared to using grubby fingers (we've all done it!), and I was really shocked that once it was out it was OUT the first time I used it. However, I can't replicate those results every single time. Also, I have had zero success with this on blackheads, and I'm certain it's just because I have no idea what I'm doing! Please give us detailed instructions to make the most of this tool

Awesome, but be careful.
By Istvan S.
Be careful with this one. Works on certain blemishes and blackheads. Don't force it or you will end up with something worse. I suggest showering and washing first, and then gently trying those spots. If they don't give up the goods, please walk away or you will end up irritating your skin and leaving bruised marks. The temptation for ridding your skin of congestion is what you must avoid at all costs. Otherwise, this is a valuable tool when you have areas that are ready to be worked on.
By Amy M.
I received this in my CLEAR kit and it works great on pimples that are getting ready to pop. It much less invasive than using your fingers, I was impressed with how it left no scarring also. Thanks Paula!
Similar To The Tool Derms Use, Needs Better Instructions
By DIANA V.
I have tried several different versions of this instrument and this is the closest I have seen to the same ones dermatologist use. It works really well for the nose area but the site should provide better instructions on how to use it for other parts because i find it hard to use it elsewhere.
High Quality, Large Learning Curve
First off, this is solidly constructed and is priced competitively.Second, it is hard to get the hang of, but once you do it's great. I used it a bunch of times and just ended up with red scars all over before figuring it out. I bought this to use instead of blackhead strips, but I discovered that the strips are way faster and that this works better as a supplement to get any blackheads that the strip loosened but didn't quite remove all the way.
Doesnt do much, dont see what the fuss is. I get it that using your fingernails is a bad idea. But Id rather use them than this, or better yet, just avoid picking and squeezing and all that altogether. Best way to deal with skin trouble is to get it in balance. Customer Care Response: Thank you for your review. We will certainly pass along your comments and feedback to Paula. Please contact customer care for help with your routine or any questions.
Title says it all. Healing time is less than half what it used to be with virtually no scarring. Wish I'd had this 15 years ago.
Great extracting tool for blemishes. Gets it out quick and easy - and clean! Would definitely recommend this product if you have acne prone skin. Be sure to follow the instructions!
Exceptional Little tool
I received this with the Clear Kit. I had an extraction tool from Sephora. The PC tool is totally different and MUCH more user-friendly. It is one of those under-rated sleeper products in your line. I highly recommend this to anyone from the occasional break-out sufferer to one whom is plagued by acne. My healing time is doubled if I use this tool. Thanks Paula and everyone on your team!
I bought one of these for my daughter and plan to order one for myself. It works wonders!
I had always heard that trying to 'pop' blemishes before their time would damage the skin, so I was a bit hesitant to try this. But, given that PC has gotten rid of 98% of my acne, I thought I'd give it a shot, and I am thoroughly impressed. Using this on blemishes that are nearing time to pop has SUBSTANTIALLY reduced the healing time afterwards. And, they seems to heal more cleanly than if I hadn't used the extractor. Highly recommend - but definitely follow the directions and use a BHA afterwards. You'll be golden.
Better Than Using Fingers
This works well for gently extracting pus from inflamed acne without causing excessive irritation, bruising, or scabs. I only get pustules occassionally, and bought this mainly for the clogged pores on my nose. It works ok there, and is definitely better than using my fingers. I think it would be more effective on blackheads if it had a smaller loop so that it could focus in on one pore at a time instead of covering several. It comes with step by step instructions, which is helpful.
Does the job
This is a similar shaped tool you can get at places like the body shop. It extracts well but usually can't get to hard to reach blackheads like the fold of the nose.
I bought this because I'm going to be in a wedding tomorrow and wanted to try everything to keep from breaking out. I have very breakout prone skin and even with a full skincare routine I still have issues. Without this tool I have gone a month so far without breaking out. Follow the instructions and keep the thing clean and this should work perfectly for anyone who needs extraction as a last resort.
Best tool ever!
This is an amazing extractor. I've tried tons of brands, and this one works. I recently used it, and it doesn't give me the same type of irritation that other extractors normally do. I wish, however, Paula's Choice uploaded a video on how to perform extractions best. Customer Care Response: Thank you for your comments. We will be sure to pass your request along to Paula and her Team!

DIRECTIONS: Use a wet washcloth with a gentle water-soluble cleanser to lightly massage your skin to remove dead skin cells. Don't overscrub! Dry your skin gently then center the Blemish Extractor opening over the pimple or blackhead. Gently push the extractor down on the blemish and move it across to release the contents. Repeat as needed but don't overdo it! Follow with one of Paula's Choice Clear 2.5% or 5% benzoyl peroxide treatments and/or a Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting Exfoliant with 1% or 2% salicylic acid (BHA). This step will reduce inflammation, disinfect, and help prevent further breakouts.
Note: Do not use the Blemish Extractor when your skin is wet because it's more vulnerable to tearing, scabbing, and scarring.
