This adorable little guy is the Tako Pore Blackhead Scrub Stick from the Korean beauty brand TonyMoly. To be totally honest, I purely bought this for the cute octopus packaging, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love the product! I’ve almost worked through the entire pot (my husband occasionally steals it for himself too 😂)

From the brand: Extract blackheads and whiteheads with our adorable, speedy scrub stick! Formulated with cellulose beads, the black mud balm effectively removes excess sebum and gently exfoliates pores to pull out blackheads, whiteheads, and other skin impurities so skin looks and feels cleaner, smoother, and more refined.
TonyMoly Tako Pore Blackhead Scrub Stick Review
I had to rub it around on the back of my hand to expose the gritty beads before using it. I’ve used it a few nights over the past week; it’s left my skin noticeably clearer and softer after just a few days! It’s got a faint charcoal scent and rinses off easily once you’ve finished scrubbing. I do wish there was more product, there are only ten grams for $12.50; there’s not much bang for your buck going on here. On the other hand, the stick hasn’t visibly worn down after 5+ uses.
*16 Months Later Update:
I’ve just now hit the bottom of the container and I take back my past grievances with the small amount of product! I did misplace this for a couple of months but even taking that into account I think that’s an amazing lifespan for $12.50. Plus if you’re smart and watch the sales or use one of Ulta’s in-store coupons you can get it even cheaper.
