Blackheads aren't just for teenagers — adults experience these pesky skin woes too. There's an easy way to zap those unwelcome guests without pore strips, which can cost a pretty penny over time. The Poppyo Blackhead Remover is like a vacuum for your pores (yes, you read that correctly). It comes with four attachments to target different concerns, and it's available at Amazon for $14. It's even captured Jennifer Aniston's attention, and we all know how flawless her face is!

This gadget has five suction settings to clear out clogged pores and remove blackheads and whiteheads.

In a video with Allure, Aniston reacted to several different skin-care trends that have gone viral on TikTok. When she watched a TikTok on the pore vacuum she said, "Okay, this is something I could probably really get into and enjoy doing, because who doesn't love that?"

After exploring the tool a bit more, she asked, "Can I take this home? Because I want to do this ... This is exciting. I support this trend."

When it comes to skin-care treatments, you can expect to shell out hundreds or even thousands on professional spa services. At-home remedies are usually more affordable, but even they can cost quite a bit depending on the tool. That said, $14 is more than reasonable for a device with as many settings and attachments as this one has.

Does the phrase "a vacuum for your skin" freak you out? It might sound strange, but this handy gizmo offers five suction levels to extract blackheads, whiteheads and anything else that might be clogging your pores. Pretty cool! The lowest setting is ideal for those with sensitive skin, though you can try working your way up to a higher intensity once you've gotten a feel for it. It comes with four probes in assorted shapes for targeting different areas at different angles.

In addition to blackheads and whiteheads, the pore vacuum can be used to suck up excess oil to help prevent blemishes and increase circulation and elasticity. Plus, its compact size makes it a good travel companion. Just recharge it via USB once the battery is depleted.

Amazon shoppers rave about the handy tool. One reviewer called it a "skin-care game changer" and said, "Its gentle suction effectively removes stubborn blackheads, leaving my skin smooth and clear. The multiple suction levels cater to different skin types, while the sleek design makes it easy to use."

Another five-star fan shared, "I have been using this for the past three weeks already ... I noticed the large blackheads are easily sucked into this; moving forward, past two weeks, I noticed visibly smaller nose pores. On my third week, it looks like my facial skin [has] gotten noticeably softer and smoother."

A third customer shared some tips for first-time users: "I used the product just once and saw a reduction in pore size around my nose the following morning. There are multiple tips — suction seems stronger with some tips versus others; do yourself a favor and start on the lowest speed and work your way up so as not to damage or irritate your skin. I would suggest using at night after a shower to get the best results and to give your skin a chance to bounce back overnight."

But it's important to note that the suction is no joke. One shopper explained, "The vacuum is incredibly easy to use, and it's perfect for those who want a convenient and effective way to clean their skin. However, it's important to be careful ... as it can pull your skin too hard if not used properly."

Another added: "Works so great! One thing you have to be careful [of] is that you will bruise if you have super sensitive skin; my skin is not sensitive, I had it at [levels two and three], at three, I had the marks."

This powerful pore vacuum comes with four nozzles to help you achieve your skin-care goals.

One reviewer wrote: "Seriously an unexpected miracle. ... Pore strips have always pulled a few [blackheads] out, but mostly just left a white film behind. I applied this clear plastic patch and went to sleep. [In the morning] I could see that about 75% of my blackheads/sebum were gone."
