About the pore "suctioner" - yes, it's battery operated and it looks kind of like a shaver but instead it has a little suction cup on the end. When you turn it on, it's like a tiny vaccuum and it sucks dirt out of your open pores (that's why it's important to steam your face first to open your pores). Sounds like it wouldn't work (I'm always skeptical) but it really does and cleans out more each time you use it.
As far as toner - I'm using Netrogena (I think it's Pore Refining Toner). The only reason I'm using it is to clean off the excess dirt and to close the pores afterwards. I don't use it daily, just in this routine. Closing your pores is so important to keep them from getting clogged again. If you are someone who uses toner all the time to clean, I would agree with Audrey-B and use witch hazel. The more natural your products, the better!
Happy cleansing and getting rid of those nasty blackheads!!
