After a hot shower, I keep pressing the hole of the extractor over the blackhead, but nothing really comes out Confused

Divine Diva, thank you, but they instruct to "press on it"

I also found this step-by-step youtube video:

But I'm still unable to extract anything from the skin on my nose! I guess, it will come with practice. Confused

I have had better luck with using a clay mak on my nose.
Even just the cheap clay powder and water takes out all the yucky stuff from my pores.

I haven't used a clay mask in a week or so and can tell my pored look a bit bigger.

I scar easily, so hate to use tools on my face.

Hi there Smile
I've used this product before. It is an extractor for blackheads as well as for pimples.

Basically what I do is to wash my hands first before I do anything.

1) clean the area with cotton ball dab with alcohol.
2) to extract the blackheads, position the tool beside the blackheads and push it out. Don't use your hands to squeeze the blackheads out of the pore.
3) next, after extracting blackheads/pimples, clean the area again with cotton ball (cleaned ones) dab in alcohol.

I hope this help.

Have you tried a hot face washer on the area for a few minutes to open up the pore area RussianSunshine??? I have never used one though friends have and can find it a little tricky if there isn't much gunk in the pores. Perhaps a little scrub/mask first then try and use the Blackhead remover?? Post back on how you get on with time. Smile
I do believe and I will try and find a picture that they also have Blackhead Removers that look like a mini gun type thing that you place over the area and pull back on it with a little button or lever type thing that pulls the Blackheads out. I will see if I can find one and post an image. Smile

Those come like this, with a lancet to break whiteheads and an extractor for blackheads.
