I have to admit: I’m never thrilled about pins that require me to take pictures of my blackheads. But I do them anyway because I love you, and I want you to know that blackheads will always be there, no matter what you try to do to them.
This pin got pretty popular, I imagine because there’s no microwaving, no weird ingredients, no tearing of skin and facial hair. All you do is squirt some honey on a lemon and then rub it on your face. It’s a lazy fuck’s dream! Despite the English-as-a-second-language instructional value of the post, it seems really, really easy.
I have used the vast majority of this bottle of honey on Pinterest beauty regimens. I’m not sure why honey is such a staple of home-made face masks, leg sugaring, and the like, but I don’t mind because at least if it doesn’t make me more beautiful, I can eat it.
I was not wrong.
It is less than pleasant to leave lemon juice and honey on your face for five minutes, turns out. There are drippage problems, and I’m pretty sure I got a lemon seed up my nose. Also globs of honey in some spots, absolutely no honey in other spots. (Too bad lemon and honey can’t cure cow licks. Lord God, I think I just need to shave my head.)
You know my before-and-after shots are a little lacking, but I did the best I could for you guys.
Before you say anything mean about my pores, let me just preemptively make the joke for you. My pores are so big I could store my car keys in them. Hahaha, so funny. Ok, moving on.
I know it looks like the after picture might be slightly better. If you want to think that, you go right ahead, but in person, it was pretty hard for me to see any difference at all, besides that my face was wetter and there were pieces of lemon in my hair.
But it didn’t sting or pull out my facial hair and it hasn’t made me break out yet, so I hesitate to call this an all-out fail. No harm done, really, except that I wasted half a lemon I could have used in a Tom Collins.
