I don't think anything really shrinks pores (maybe laser, but it's expensive and not reliable), but keeping them clean sure makes them a lot less noticable...and reduces breakouts in the long term.

And it is just so damn fun watching stuff come out of the pores as the Ezzi Peel passes over them...twice as fun because it doesn't cause the irritation and lumps that "picking" causes.

As gross as it may sound, I love using it and watching all that gunk come out. Thats what got my sister interested in it. My skins feels and looks cleaner.

i was hoping that cleaning my pores really good would minimize them. and some of the reviews i read people claimed pore shrinkage. oh well, as long as i have clean pores.

Okay, I got mine last week. I got the UltraWave version because I prefer corded versions to eliminate battery issues down the road.

I like it so far. But I do have to ask, how long does it take both of you to do this? I read in the pamphlet that it should take 15 minutes?!?! I can easily pass over my entire face in about 2 minutes.

Also, I have been washing my face with soap first, rinsing it off and then using the scrapper. I found if I tried to use the scrapper with the soap, my skin started to dry and I hate the feeling of soap drying on my face.

Am I using this thing the right way?

I use Hibiclens when I use my spatula, and then keep adding water as it gets dry. Hibiclens is technically a soap (an anti-microbial surgical scrub really), but I don't find it drying at all. Occasionally, I use a spray toner that I have. I go over my face many times. I use my pro-spatula most of the time, and it takes about 10 minutes.

Some people use aloe vera gel (the fresh bottled kind), which is a nice healing gel that conducts ultrasound waves. Some people use real ultrasound gel. Most just use water.

I have aloe vera, i will try that tonight. I also might but the hibiclens, i have heard it really helps. we use to carry it in my lab until Georgetown university claimed they were broke so cant supply us with it anymore. Broke my azz!

I found it cheapest on Amazon. the website wanted $250, I got it for closer to $200.

I get a bump every month on my left nostril without fail. its usually huge, red and very painful and can last for a week. This month its not nearly as huge or painful or red. Its even smaller today then it was yesterday. I dont think this one will last for a week. Not sure if the ez peel has any thing to do with it, but it is one heck of a coincidence.

Shop around, but Amazon is often the most economical place to buy stuff.


I use Hibiclens as a "disinfectant" cleanser for my acne and it's just a happy accident that's it's gel-like and makes a good lubricant for my spatula. If anyone wants to try it, the best place to buy it is Walgreens. They have a store-brand knockoff that doesn't contain the awful pink dye that the brandname contains, so it's just clear and very pleasant to use. It's on the shelf, right next to the authentic Hibiclens.

Just a warning on Hibiclens...never, ever, use it in your ears. It damages hearing. Keep it out of the eyes too...but I think that goes without saying for all soaps. Just keep it on the skin.

Thanks for the tip RCW. But I have a question, have you ever used your spatula anywhere else, like your back? I have had a pretty clean back for a while, but last week my sister pointed out my back looked pretty bad. I exfoliate and had my back looking pretty good. Now its looks a hot mess. Maybe the ez peel can help?

If you can reach it, I don't see why you couldn't use the spatula on your back.

I use it twice on my back, or my sister did. She says my back is looking clearer. I havnt gotten my monthly breakout yet. WHOO HOO!!

I try to use it everday. But sometimes I forget to charge it so when I go to use it, its dead. it seems fine if i miss a day or two. My skin is looking not so bad. Not the best, but pretty good.

That's why I prefer my corded pro-model spatula...it doesn't need to be kept charged and it's better at exfoliating/cleaning-out-the-pores, so I get even better skin than with the cordless spatula. Since you get good results, you may want to keep your eye out on Craigs list or ebay for a used pro-model.

BP works better as a leave on product. If you cleanse with it, it's being washed off.

Try a gentle cleanser, then a BHA product and mild 2.5% or 5% BP nightly. I buy the liquid BHA and out it in a spray bottle and spray my back nightly. I use paula's choice products and so do y teens with great success.
