DIY Facial Peel: Pinterest - Pass or Fail
Like many of you, I have jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon with both feet. I. Am. Obsessed. I want to Pin all the time! As we accumulate all of our Pins, it's easy to put off actually trying them because now we know just where they are...for later.
This is my new weekly challenge: Let's all attempt to try at least one Pin a week and report back our successes or failures. You game? I'll start by posting my weekly Pin and grade it either Pass or Fail. You can join in with your own experiences. You can either comment below or let me know if you want me to set up a linky party.
This week's Pin can be found on my Juniper Style Board, where I keep all my fashion, hair, and make up tips.
Full Face Pore Strips Mask originating from Petit Elefant.
Allison teaches us how to make a Peeling Pore Cleaning Mask from two ingredients:
1 Tbsp. unflavored gelatin
1-2 Tbsp. milk
1. Stir, then microwave for 10-15 sec.
2. Immediately spread onto face (Allison used a popcicle stick, but I just used my fingers).
3. Let dry for at least 15 minutes.
I liked the easy recipe and it felt nice going on.
Mine was still tacky after about 25 minutes in some spots and crunchy in other spots. This could be user error with uneven application.
Peeling the mask was very painful on most of my face as it was really stuck on there! I felt like I was peeling off the whole top layer of skin. Most times I just had to rip it quick, like a Bandaid.
The little fine hairs around my jaw line all pulled out by the roots and I had to get into the shower to really get all the residue off.
My face was very red afterward, especially in the areas where hair had been pulled out:
This morning I have little red sore bumps along my jaw and my skin is tender.
I'm going to have to give this Pin a Fail. I could Pass this tutorial if used only in the T-zone, I think.
