Reviewed: This Peel Obliterated My Blackheads in 30 Seconds Flat

A few months ago, I decided I was done playing whack-a-mole with my blackheads. I had waged that war for years, with all manner of weapons—lancets, regular facials, brightening oils, pore strips, clay masks—some more effective than others, at least temporarily, but all ultimately useless. By the time I was ready to wave the proverbial white flag, my nose and chin weren't just peppered with tiny black spots but actual battle wounds—discoloration, enlarged pores, and broken capillaries—all evidence of my more forceful attempts to remove them once and for all.

So I gave up. After all, was it really worth spending so much time on a nuisance that was probably (definitely) only visible to me whenever I happened to be peering into my magnifying mirror? Especially when just about every expert says there's no way to permanently get rid of all blackheads?

Blackheads, be gone.
