So when they say "Do Not Use On Face" they're actually telling the truth.... I KNOW.

So the other day, I was staring at myself in the mirror debating whether I should tweeze my eyebrows, or let them grow out into a new shape. (These are the decisions that make the world go round)

And while I was gazing into the depths of my soul, I realized that I could really use a facial.

So I started rummaging through my bathroom cupboards, because I ALWAYS have at least one type of face mask on hand.

EXCEPT of course, for today. Because I needed it. And that's the way my world works. (It's just as lousy as it sounds)

As I was sitting there, my eyes became fixated on a certain hair removal product....

And as I stared at this lovely depilatory cream, I thought to my self, "Well, if it will disintegrate hair follicles, it will probably disintegrate the crap in my pores..."

So I put it on my face.

(You know, in the T-Zone.)

The first minutes was good.

Minute two was a little more uncomfortable.

Minute three moved from discomfort to actual burning,

And minute four was when I finally rinsed the stuff off my face.

Now, while this may sound stupid to some most of you, I am rather proud of myself because: 

1. My pores are clear.
2. My skin is tight.

In fact, I'd say it was the equivalent to a chemical peel.. you know, but cheaper, over the counter and kinda rogue.

Totally doing it again.
