What is it?

Blackheads are often associated with teenagers, but many adults experience these pesky skin woes too. Luckily, there's an easy way to zap those unwelcome guests without the use of pore strips, which can cost a pretty penny over time. The Poppyo Blackhead Remover is like a vacuum for your pores — yes, you read that correctly! It comes with four attachments to target different concerns, and it's currently on sale at Amazon for just $18 (down from $46).

This "vacuum" for your skin has five suction settings to help clear out clogged pores and remove blackheads and whiteheads.

Why is it a good deal?

When it comes to skin-care treatments, you can expect to shell out hundreds or even thousands on professional spa services. At-home remedies are usually more affordable, but even they can cost quite a bit depending on the tool. That said, $18 is more than reasonable for a device with as many settings and attachments as this one has, and this is the cheapest we've seen it all year. Be sure to apply the on-page coupon for the lowest price — we love a double discount!

Why do I need this?

A vacuum for your skin? It might sound a little strange at first, but this handy gizmo offers five suction levels to extract blackheads, whiteheads and anything else that might be clogging your pores. Pretty cool! The lowest setting is ideal for those with sensitive skin, though you can try working your way up to a higher intensity once you've gotten a feel for it. It comes with four suction probes in assorted shapes for targeting areas of varying sizes, at different angles.

In addition to blackheads and whiteheads, it can be used to suck up excess oil to help prevent blemishes and acne while also increasing circulation and working to improve elasticity. Plus, its compact size makes it the perfect travel companion!

Using pore strips doesn't only come with the risk of irritating your skin, it can also suck up a lot of money over time if you're constantly restocking. With the Poppyo Blackhead Remover, you'll be able to clean those pores out over and over again — just recharge it via USB once the battery is depleted.

What reviewers say

"Game-changer for my face," raved one customer. "The suction part of the tool works great. I'm also impressed with the way it has made wrinkles look less visible and pores more refined."

Another happy shopper wrote, "Every time I use it, my skin is instantly smoother. This is a much better investment than pore strips and also more convenient! The different suction pieces help to reach all areas of your face. The pieces are also easy to clean after use."

"Buy it!" exclaimed one excited fan. "I used this for the first time after taking a hot shower so my pores were open, and it worked great. I bought this specifically to get blackheads on my nose and in the hard-to-reach spots between my nose and face."

"Saved my pores," reported a succinct reviewer. "Easy to use; I didn’t expect it to work as well as it did."

This user offered some good advice for first-timers: "It works very well, be gentle with the suction, you can def give yourself bruises and hickeys if you’re like me and bruise easily. It wasn’t an issue necessarily, I knew I had probably held it on just a second too long, you really don’t need to go very slow. It’s pretty satisfying once you're done and can see all the gunk and sebum!"

"The suction part of the tool works great," wrote a five-star reviewer. "I'm also impressed with the way it has made wrinkles look less visible and pores more refined."

One reviewer wrote: "Seriously an unexpected miracle. ... Pore strips have always pulled a few [blackheads] out, but mostly just left a white film behind. I applied this clear plastic patch and went to sleep. [In the morning] I could see that about 75% of my blackheads/sebum were gone."
