Dermaflash Dermapore Pore Extractor Review

Ok fair warning, this post is gross! But it's soooo satisfying and I just need to share my new favorite skin tool with everyone.


So I've talked a little about this over the past month or so but I wanted to give you guys a dedicated review on it. I originally bought the Dermapore Extractor after seeing Tati review it on her channel during the Sephora sale (where I was also able to snag it at 20% off!). I'm not usually one for face tools as I think they're pretty gimmick-y but I thought why not and just went for it (Sephora has a great return policy!).

Before testing it out, I watched a couple of videos on it and how to use it. It's pretty straight forward: make sure your face is wet, hold it taught, and essentially scrape your clogged pores away. The first time I used it I was in shock... it just worked so well. And since then I use it about once a week and I find that every time I use it I'm SUPER impressed by it.

BUT there are some caveats I want to note before diving in!

1. I have rather large pores around my nose. They build up easy and I never really deal with blackheads but more whiteheads and they are strongest around my nose into my cheeks and on my chin. Because of that, I think my before and after are that much more extreme.

2. I waited about two weeks before doing this so there would be a stronger before + after shown. I wanted to share how well it works!!

3. I didn't take pictures of the rest of my face because I rarely use it outside my nose area, chin, and between my brows. Those are my biggest problem areas and where I mainly focus the extractor when needed!

The Before:

The After:

(all the gunk that came out!)

Side by side:

How I Use the Extractor:
I like to use it right after I was my face and I try and use a chemical exfoliating face wash before so I can make sure that we're getting off as much as possible when using the extractor. This would defintely be used best after a good face steam when your pores can open up but since I don't have anything like that, I just grab a warm washcloth and spot heat the areas as I go.

Your face needs to be wet for the extractor to work and glide smoothly so you can either grab a spray bottle/mister or just use a washcloth and dampen the face as need be (which is what I do). You'll be able to tell when you need more water as the extractor has trouble moving on your skin.

I focus and work in areas, holding my skin taught and applying a little bit of pressure so it can really get into my pores and help everything come out. It DOES NOT hurt! The vibrations are so small and quick you don't really feel anything -- the only thing you feel is the pressure of the device on your skin.

My sections are usually on my side nose/cheek, top of the nose and between brows, other side of the nose, then my chin -- rewetting and soaking with warm water as I go. And also cleaning off the device in between! I wipe it down between sections to get the gunk off but then also clean it with HP (or just soap and water) before and after using it.

You will definitely learn more as you use it over time as what works best for you and your skin. But I go all which ways -- up, down, sideways -- to make sure to get every single pore. Some places you'll need to apply more pressure than others but just use it often and find what works best for you!

How Often I Use the Extractor:
I use the Dermapore about once a week on my problem areas, which is about the same time I start to visibly see my pores getting clogged. There are instructions in the manual depending on your skin type that shares how often you should use it but I just found a routine that is best for me!

I use the Dermapore on my entire face about once a month. Whenever I find I have an outside problem area I will treat as need be but for the most part, I just use it in my cheeks and forehead once a month. I do this because I don't need to use it as often there (not as much comes out) and it does take a little longer so I find a time when I'm able to take the time to do a full face.

The Extractor vs The Serum Infuser Options:
So there are actually two functions of this device: a pore extractor (push on once) and a serum infuser (push on twice). I obviously mainly use the pore extraction option because it works and I don't really feel like the infuser is really needed. I'm sure it works better than my fingers but this is where I think devices like this are just a gimmick! So take that for what you will!

Overall Thoughts:
Overall, A+ stuff. It is $99 which is a lot for a skincare device so it's always hard to really suggest and put my endorsement behind it but if you have the money to do so, do it. I think it works really well at clearing your skin and pores. And since I've been using it, I've noticed fewer breakouts, build up, and smaller pores overall.

If you're able to find it on sale, that's even better! Either way, you'll defintely get your money's worth because it should last you forever. You just recharge it when needed (I've been using it for a little over a month now and I haven't plugged it in yet) and you're good to go.
