Some pimple-popping videos draw in viewers with the promise of gigantic skin aberrations, like lipomas the size of bowling balls and decades-old cysts as big as grapefruits.
But others garner millions of views by featuring a much smaller, subtler type of pimple: the humble blackhead.

There are no frills or surprises here. It’s just a long stretch of gentle, systematic, professionally filmed blackhead extractions, one after another after another. It’s no wonder this was among the most-upvoted blackhead videos shared to Reddit’s /r/popping in 2018.
3. Dr. Pimple Popper’s popular pop
It features a dilated pore of winer – essentially a giant blackhead clogging a single, super-stretched-out pore. The first big squeeze happens around the one-minute mark.
4. The double-pore ear blackhead
The 澄熒SPA YouTube channel – owned by a spa in Taiwan – may not be as famous as Dr. Pimple Popper’s, but it’s a treasure trove of excellent in-the-ear blackhead videos.

10. A slow and steady pore strip video
Ahead of the holiday season, YouTuber Enilsa Brown released a 30-minute compilation of nose extractions. Although there are some non-blackhead removals in the mix, the majority of the video shows the esthetician unclogging dark substance from the pores.
If you don’t have a half hour to spare, we suggest skipping to 1:11 and 6:33 for the best of the compilation.embed type youtube oEmbedUrl http://www.youtube.com/oembed?url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0unKIUQBNk html
