Is it just me, there is just something soooooo satisfying about peeling off a blackhead remover like a mask or nose strip and seeing how much it got off? And when I look in the mirror and see a clear complexion, I feel even better! And when it’s cheaper than $20, it’s a triple win!
Biore Pore Pack Black
$4.45 for pack of 10, Guardian
One of the best blackhead remover for the nose — even if it comes out less than 50 cents apiece! Beauty reviews gush about it so much, and even go so far as to upload before-and-after pics on Instagram.
“I shared it with my dad, who has the worst blackheads ever because he never goes to the dermatologist, and it got out so much that we were both amazed. I love Biore!” says one beauty review.
St. Ives Apricot Scrub Naturally Clear Blemish and Blackhead Control
This cult favourite isn’t just a blackhead remover: it also exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal a natural glow. It also contains salicylic acid, so it can help control pimples and other breakouts.
However, the huge grains can irritate and dry out your skin, so we don’t recommend using this every day. Dermatologists also discourage using very harsh scrubs, especially if you have thin, ageing or sensitive skin.
This is best blackhead remover for people with very oily skin — and even then, concentrate it on areas where you’re most likely to get blackheads and breakouts. Follow up with a soothing serum and moisturizer.
Holika Holika Pig Clear 3-Step Blackhead Remover
$2.40, Althea Singapore
It got an average 4.5 rating and beauty reviews that say that it’s one of the best blackhead remover products they’ve ever tried! “My best friend introduced this to me and honestly I will never use anything again. It works so well!” says one review.
The three-step kit opens up pores to prep them for blackhead removal, then clears it out. The last step closes the pores to control oil and make your skin look extra smooth and flawless.
CosRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
One of the best Korean blackhead remover products! It contains a 4% solution of natural form of BHA — which clears out your pores and makes your skin softer and smoother.
Beauty reviews say that it cleared their blackheads and even made their pores look smaller.
For best results, wait at least 20 minutes before applying another skincare product (like moisturizer or serum). Use twice a week.
Rire All Kill Blackhead Remover Stick
$11.10, Althea Singapore
Contains black bean extract, black sesame extract and charcoal powder to gently buff off dead skin cells and clean out pores. The antioxidants heal and moisturize your skin.
While you won’t get results overnight, its gentle formula is perfectly safe for people with dry or sensitive skin!
Elizavecca Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask
$14.90, Althea Singapore
This Korean blackhead removal mask is both effective and fun (and we never thought we would say blackhead” and fun” in the same sentence). It’s full of skin-nourishing ingredients like mud, collagen, green tea, charcoal and carbonated water. It cleans out your pores, softens and moisturizes, and bubbles up like a bottle of champagne.
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing Mask
This cult favourite has nearly 17,000 glowing reviews on Amazon, and has been gushed about in beauty vlogs, blogs, and forums! The 1-pound jar will last you forever.
You can mix the clay with water or apple cider vinegar. It can also be used as a base for DIY face masks — just mix other ingredients and essential oils!
