Are Pore Vacuums Really Worth It?


There’s a trend that’s been gaining some serious traction over the last year. It’s all related to skin care too. I’m talking about Korean beauty and all the crazy treatments that go along with it. No doubt about it, K-Beauty is here to stay and it’s for sure not going anywhere at all. In fact, most of the Americans that are habitual shoppers at ULTA and Sephora are finding themselves connecting with Korean skin brands and fighting with customers over new product releases. One of those products that people are fighting over – the pore vacuum!

The sheet masks aka face masks were all the craze last year and now it’s all about the pore vacuums.

What the heck is a pore vacuum you ask? Well, it’s pretty much what you think it is. The pore vacuum is literally a device with suction technology that pulls gross gunk out of your deep pores. You must know how a standard vacuum cleaner works, I hope. If so, it does just that!

This device also works to help exfoliate your skin, reduce wrinkles, fix scar damage and make your complexion look fab – no but seriously that’s what people are saying about this little device.

Does it really work though?

Honestly, I haven’t got a clue whether or not it does EVERYTHING that it claims to do.

My guess would be that this device does help you remove dead skin, possibly clear your pores a bit and maybe more.

Here are a few other things that I gathered from my research and pore vacuum investigation. If you’re a traveler, then you will be happy to learn that this is about the size of an electric toothbrush and can be conveniently packed in your carry on. No one is going to confuse it with a lightsaber or anything like that. You’ve got nothing to worry about.

I also learned that you want to treat the use of this device similar to other treatments. What I mean is that you’ll be using this with a fresh and clean face or not at all – if you do things right.

Oh, silly me, I didn’t share the formal name of this product. It’s called the Silk’n Revit Microderm and it costs about $85. The product comes with batteries so you’re ready to rock and roll once you make the purchase.

You can expect some changes in skin color but nothing major or permanent. Your skin will not look like you have bad rosacea or anything like that. If anything, you’ll get a bit red from using it and that’s it.

There’s a good chance that this product will cause your skin to become a bit dry, but you must remember, it’s literally sucking the oil, dirt, and grime out of your pores. Don’t worry – you’ll bounce back like a champ, I’m sure of it.

Now, the question is whether or not you should go out to that happy hour you and the rest of the accounting team have been planning around tax day or if you should just splurge and give this a whack.

Chances are you get drunk enough or indulge in libations on the regular with the rest of the working team. My advice would be to give it a whirl and whether you love it or hate it, share the results with us and the rest of the world.

After all, that drink you’re planning on getting isn’t going to do jack for your skin. Just saying and if you’re truly serious about your skin, then you want to try new things until you find what works for you. That’s the name of this game, there’s no other way to spin it other than like that. Good luck, let us know how you make out!
