Design and handling make a good impression, but the cleaning result is only moderate.

The DigHealth - Blackhead Remove Pore Cleaner has a strong suction power, but only achieves sufficient cleaning results. The noise level is slightly high and battery life short. An additional disadvantage is the fact, that the device was delivered uncharged. Nevertheless, its ergonomic design as well as its movable charging station could convince.
About the Device
The DigHealth - Blackhead Remover Pore Cleaner arrives at our test lab in a plain white packaging with a picture of the device.
The blackhead suction device has a very noble and high-quality design. The device has 3 control buttons, an ON / OFF switch and two buttons for setting the intensity levels. An LED display can be found below these buttons. The device has 6 suction modes and can be used for about 2.5 hours in continuous operation after charging for 2 hours.
The attached accessories include:
- A charging station
- USB cable
- 4 attachments
- 10 spare sponges
- 3 silicone gel rings
Each of the above mentioned attachments has a different function:
- Microcrystalline attachment for massaging and exfoliating
- Elliptical attachment for smoothing fine lines
- Small round attachment for precise cleaning of the pores
- Large round attachment for skin tightening
The well-structured and clear manual is only available in English. An additional warranty is not mentioned in it.
Contained in the scope of delivery:
- Blackhead remover

Before using the DigHealth - Blackhead Remover Pore Cleaner, read the manual carefully. Within the manual, helpful tips and instructions are mentioned which should be considered.
In order to achieve optimal results, the first step is to open your pores.
In our test, we took a facial steam bath for about 5-10 minutes. The longer the steam bath, the more your pores can open.
In the next step, you choose one of the 4 probe heads:
- Microcrystalline probe head
- Face-tightening probe head
- Pore cleaning attachment
- Attachment against fine wrinkles
The tester used the pore cleaning attachment.
Before using the device you need to charge it for 2 hours first. In relation to this duration, the battery life of only 2.5 hours is quite short. Unfortunately, the device was also delivered with an empty battery.
When the blackhead remover is fully charged, you can press the ON / OFF switch. The LED display will light up afterwards to indicate the battery level and the currently used power level.
In comparison to the other devices of this test series, it is the only product which offers 6 intensity levels.
Firstly, we have tested level 3.
At this stage, the suction power is aleady very strong. However, the opening of the attachment is quite large, so that the device has difficulties to adhere well in regions like the nose. It cannot grip the skin properly.
The cleaning result at this level is only mediocre. Part of the blackheads were removed, but only in an almost unnoticeable amount.
Later in the test, we have tested level 6. Again, the suction is enormous but only works after repeated attempts.
Despite a strong suction power, even at the highest level the cleaning result is only sufficient. For better results, the attachment with a smaller opening should be used.
Nevertheless, the blood circulation is stimulated and the skin tightened at each intensity level. After the treatment, the skin feels very soft and pleasant.
The manual suggests a regular application twice a week. The device should not be used daily.
We have evaluated about 70 online reviews. In summary, it can be said that around 90 percent of the buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). 10 percent of the users are partially (2 stars) or totally dissatisfied. The average grade at the time of the evaluation was 4.4 out of 5 stars.
Positive comments were:
- Silent application
- Very good workmanship
- Long battery life
- Strong suction power
Negative comments were:
- Skin becomes sore after use
- Can quickly cause blotches and small broken veins

Is it possible to use the blackhead remover for the back and décolleté?
Yes, its usage is also possible for these body parts.
Is the device also suitable for sensitive skin?
The device is suitable for all skin types. If you have sensitive skin, it will be better to start with the lowest level of suction power and slowly increase the intensity from that point.
