claim: use gelatin and milk to replace spendy biore nose strips!

test: well, this definitely works. fortunately i had some gelatine in my cupboard for some reason, so i was able whip this up easily. 1 packet of gelatine mixed with 2 tblsp of milk. mix that bad boy up.IMG_1383

it gets chunky. then put it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.IMG_1385

 

it gets soupy, and now’s the time to apply!IMG_1386

the worst part about this stuff?? it STINKS like bad milk. yucko. the instructions say to apply with a popsicle stick, but why waste something like that? use your fingers. IMG_1388

i just put it on my nose and chin. you can put it all over your face if you’d like. let it dry til you can’t move your mouth. i let it sit for about 20 mins. IMG_1389

omg time to peel! that was all the farther my mouth would open. that stuff is STIFF. peel back an edge with your fingernail (might take a few tries), and peel away.IMG_1393

and boy does this peel away stuff. it is BETTER than a biore strip. if you have sensitive skin, you might want to not try this, or wait til a weekend so if your skin peels off with the gelatin, you have a day to recover.IMG_1395

smooth as a baby’s butt! my skin is still tingling.IMG_1396

…AND of course, since it was made of milk, sophie had to eat the remains XPIMG_1397

verdict: this works. it takes maybe a minute to prepare. and definitely cheaper than biore. i had a LOT of leftover goo after i applied. i don’t know if it’s possible, but a person could try to put it in the fridge and re-microwave when you want to use it next.
