So, I read this blog, which led to me to YouTube video, about making your own pore strips out of milk and gelatin. I can do that, I thought. So I did.
I mixed up 1.5 tablespoons milk with 1 tablespoon of gelatin, microwaved it for 12 seconds and spread it all over my face with a spoon. I don’t use makeup brushes, so sue me. It was goopy and runny–too runny. I noticed that it took far too long to dry. When it did dry, it was too thin and brittle. It didn’t pull off like a strip. I resorted to scrub, scrub scrubbing my face clean.
At one point, it looked and felt like I was peeling my skin away. Not good.
The second time around, I used equals parts milk to gelatin. It was thicker and easier to apply in a thick paste. I just coated my nose and chin. It dried much faster and pulled off in more-or-less one piece. Success, right?
Well, I pulled out no pore gunk on either go-through. They both left my skin feeling super soft. Neither of them smelled amazing, but it wasn’t as awful as people are bitching about. The smell was reminiscent of Cream of Wheat or baby food. They both hurt as they pulled on my peach fuzz, but they were both perfectly clean. I guess my pores don’t need strips, so the whole thing was a waste?
Not at all. I found out, Goliath thinks the stuff is pretty tasty.
