The Best Beauty Tools I Discovered From Instagram’s Explore Tab
- Sep 04, 2018 -

If you happened to be wondering what my Explore page looked like on Instagram, I am here to tell you that it is entirely comprised of ten-second videos of people using beauty tools. Not makeup looks, not K-beauty skin-care product intros, but tools. High-tech cleansers, massagers, steamers, blackhead-extractors, at-home microdermabrasion, facial-toning devices: I’m addicted.

I’ve spent hours in bed transfixed by these beauty machines, but — until now — had never felt the need to carve out the money to test them out. But then my interest overtook my sanity and I decided to purchase, research, and test out a bevy of products that regularly pop up on my Explore page in order to let you know if they’re worth the splurge. If you’re considering a beauty tool, or if, like me, your Explore page has given you beauty-toolFOMO, allow me to walk you through what’s on the market.


Blackhead Remover Pore Vacuum Pore Cleaner

I’m a sicko, so I watched about a thousand videos of this device — a blackhead “vacuum” that literally sucks up dead skin cells and debris trapped in your skin — pulling blackheads out of people’s faces. Though I enjoyed watching the process, I am skeptical of any device that promises to get rid of blackheads — even after the best facials, I still find myself extracting; if a trained human can’t get rid of them, how could a weird little machine? But I have to admit, I was shocked and surprised by how effective this was. This thing will not help you with your regular zits (just use my beloved go-to, Pimple Patches), but for dealing with nose and chin blackheads, this product is actually kind of incredible. I was floored by how much it actually took out of my skin. I should say, though, that this product is quite rough on the skin. So if you have sensitive skin, expect some redness and even, according to a few reviews, some bruises.


LED light therpay facial device 

A compact, pricey light stick which allegedly helps to get rid of any gross bacteria in the skin that causes acne by “supporting natural blood microcirculation and facilitating the skin’s renewal.” I’m still in the process of testing this out, but did use it last week on a giant, horrible cystic blemish and noticed that the spot went down in size a decent amount after a few uses. The reviews for this are very positive. One Sephora user said: “My face is less red or inflamed, my pores are smaller, I have less blackheads, and my regular zits now heal over one to three days, much faster than they ever did before I got this thing.”
