We Sucked Shit Out Of Our Pores And Holy Hell It Was Gross

For everyone who's just a *little* obsessed with their dirty pores.

Posted on

Hi hi, party people! We recently saw some reviews about a PORE-SUCKING VACUUM, and because we're all gross and obsessed with our dirty pores, we just had to try it.

The Panasonic Electric Pore Cleanser claims to clean out your pores using suction (like a vacuum).

It's $35.97 and comes from Japan. And it looks like a sex toy.

It's $35.97 and comes from Japan. And it looks like a sex toy.

To get the most out of it, you'll first want to steam up your face and get those pores nice and open.

Your face should also be wet when you use this product.

Your face should also be wet when you use this product.

There's only one speed/power setting on the device, and we found that if you stay in one place for too long you'll end up giving yourself a lil' hickey.

Just LOOK AT THAT SUCTION.

Just LOOK AT THAT SUCTION.

Claire figured out that it does take some time to get used to, and you have to keep returning to the same spot in order to really get everything out.

It's like you loosen things up with the first round, and the second round you really suck the gunk out.

Lauren actually really liked it and was getting major ~spa vibes~.

While this didn't work out PERFECTLY, it still got my pore juices out of my face, and like 1-2 of those hard little seedlike things. It felt like a face massager, and I noticed that my skin was more ~glowy~ than usual for a couple days following. So while I think other masks might do the blackhead-sucking thing better than this product did, I'm still gonna give it props for the nice massage and for not leaving any scars (which I usually get from digging my nails into my face trying to pop a pimple — I KNOW). Rating: 3.5/5

Sam didn't see much of a difference, but could definitely feel the pressure of the device.

I wasn't really that impressed by the device, but I wasn't necessarily disappointed either. I could tell it definitely picked up some oil and at least one blackhead from my face. Honestly, though, I didn't notice much of a difference in my skin after using the vacuum, for better or for worse. My face was still as slick as the Exxon Valdez oil spill, and my T-zone was shiny like a disco ball. To be honest, I'm just glad I didn't vacuum a huge chunk of my face off. Rating: 2.5/5

And Claire was not a fan.

For something that looks as adorable as Qbert, I was massively disappointed. It gets two stars because it did kinda pull up some gunk from my pores but ultimately is NOT worth it. I mean, I gave myself a hickey, and it made me BLEED MY OWN BLOOD. As I went over a patch of skin, it would leave a red trail of irritated skin behind, and the redness STAYED for at least a day. I'll just have to add this to the file of fancy face things that didn't help cure my problematic skin and keep searching for the thing that will. Rating: 2/5
