my sister does skin stuff and other face stuff she said those things dont work at all... they make it worst once you stop useing them since... blackhead isnt caused by dirt what ya doing by useing them is making holes in ya skin and now real dirt can go in... if ya want to get rid of blackhads she said be healthy by getting the right vitamins in ya body
