During our tests, we were seduced by its ergonomic design, its intuitive operation and its skin-friendly silicone tips. It can be adjusted to no less than five levels of intensity and is already effective at the lower speeds. Its four heads allow a complete cleaning, adapted to all types of needs, while its good autonomy makes its use practical.
Blackhead remover vacuums are not recommended for sensitive and fragile skin.
A model equipped with an LCD screen will be easier to adjust to your liking.
It is not advised for sensitive skins to use a high intensity as this may damage the skin.
It is important that your device, especially the tip, is easy to clean.
Most models are battery operated, which is more convenient and comfortable to use.
Although it is not strictly a blackhead remover vacuum, this device designed to imitate the microdermabrasion treatments carried out in beauty salons is effective in improving the appearance of the skin, while limiting blackheads thanks to its dual exfoliation and suction technology. Easy to use and ergonomic, it comes with several tips that respect all skin types and needs. Although it is mains operated, it is still easy to use.

How to choose your blackhead remover vacuum?
Linked to excess sebum or simply an accumulation of pollution in the pores, blackheads mainly affect oily and acne-prone skin, and are a dread for many of us.
To get rid of it, fight against your barbaric instinct and avoid touching it with your hands, in favour of cosmetics (facial cleanser, mask, scrub…) and small appliances (vacuum, cleaning brush…): they are better suited to do the job gently.
Although blackhead vacuums have gained in popularity in recent years, especially on social networks, they are still a little unknown. We help you find out more here.
First things firts, we feel it is essential to take the time to point out a few precautions for use. If you have sensitive, thin, fragile skin or skin prone to eczema, you should not use this type of device. Also avoid using it too frequently: 4 to 5 sessions per year are, according to specialists, ideal to avoid damaging your skin.
Before using it, it is best to take a steam bath to open your pores and make it easier to clean. Avoid using a too intense suction, as this may do more harm than good to your skin – and perhaps test the setting on your arm before using it on your face. Lastly, do not stay in one place for too long, as this can lead to marks.
With this in mind, here are the features to pay attention to when choosing your device:
- Tips: the devices usually come with several sizes of suction tips, which can be changed according to the needs and areas treated. Typically, the larger heads provide more intense suction. Some models are also equipped with exfoliating heads to give you a complete makeover.
- Power: you can usually choose several suction intensities. The more sensitive your skin is, the more you should not choose a high intensity. In any case, we recommend that you start your treatment on the lowest speed, to see how your skin reacts.
- Ergonomics: the models are of course designed to ensure a comfortable grip and easy handling. The LCD screen also makes adjustments easier. For an easy cleaning, the tips are usually used in conjunction with small disposable filters that collect the results of your vacuuming session.
- Power supply: most models are battery operated, which enables a more comfortable freedom of movement. For a practical use, it is best to find out how long the model you want will last.
