E.L.F.’s Pore Cleaning Brush Might Loosen Up Pesky Blackheads

E.L.F. Pore Cleaning Finger Brush is a tiny little dual-sided facial brush you can slip over your finger and use with your favorite facial cleanser for a deeper clean.

I have used so many different Korean and Japanese black head brushes and sticks like the It’s Skin Detail Black Head Clean Brush and Black Head Off Stick. All of them promise to rid me of those pesky blackheads that get embedded into my nose and on a rare occasion, when I get lucky, these things actually work really well to loosen up blackheads and allow my nose strips to work a whole hell of a lot better.

E.L.F.’s little pore cleansing brush pops right onto your finger which actually gives you a good deal of control over how hard or gentle you scrub. I typically go all out and use it with an exfoliating cleanser. I squeeze a tiny dollop on the bristled side and gently work it around the sides of my nose and at the tip to loosen up blackheads and any gunk hiding out in my pores. After I either use an extractor to pop those nasty buggers out or a nose strip.

If you’re prone to clogged pores or blackheads around certain areas of your face this little guy might help out. The bumpy, bristled side works best for getting a deep clean plus you can control how hard or gently you scrub. There’s a flat side which apparently “refines” but I find it a little useless. The bristled side is the best side in my opinion.

Best part? You can’t afford not to try it since it’ll set you back a mere $2 bucks!

E.L.F. Pore Cleaning Finger Brush is available at Target as well as online at

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Have you tried You can find some of the stupidest gadgets on there. Its so cheap and no tax. I may or may not have purchased a few dozen items from there.
    I typically kill a few hours on there searching for useless items.
    I’ve gotten the beauty sponge stand for my Beauty Blender. it sits on the thing like a boiled egg. So funny but surprisingly useful. Check it out when you get a chance.

      I shop yesstyle and yeassia constantly ;-D they do indeed have really weird beauty gadgetry ;-D Beauty Blender actually made one of those too with jewels a while back ago but way more expensive than ones you can get from Japan/Korea ;D

      Oh, definitely, though I just started. Got 2 red blushes, the red mini lip kit, and 3 Peripera colored mascaras. Maybe i’ll look for a jade roller. What astonishes me is how quick the ship is…better than Sephora, which gets stalled at the local hub, takes 3 weeks and has Spanish, Portuguese, and a bunch of cross outs and question marks on the package. Not so sure I like the private contractor laser ship thing. YesStyle has a phenomenal selection, and for ?3 custom eyes, the reds are reds! Much more interesting than the same old/same old.

      OMG! Stella – thank you for your post. I love Laneige products, but haven’t thought to look past what Sephora sells. They have so much stuff! I’m going back to yesstyle right now to start filling my shopping cart. 🙂

        just beware Amy, yesstyle sometimes jacks up prices so compare before buying 😀

    OMG, they are just like the baby tooth brushes I buy for my daughter! They come in packs of 6 for, like, 7$ on Amazon, and they have plastic cases. I always thought they looked like something that would work on my face but never tried it out, now I will.
