This pin doesn’t show a picture of the blackhead remover, but it does take you to a page with several at-home beauty remedies, including one that involves pouring beer on your head. I shit you not.
You know how I feel about doing anything with alcohol besides just drinking it. So I didn’t test that one. I tested the baking soda and milk blackhead remover.
I had to use up my milk anyways.
Oops. This is one beauty remedy I will not be tasting, thanks.
Anyway, when mixed, it looked like… well, milk. And honestly, it didn’t mix that well. It was mostly milk with baking soda at the bottom.
After following the directions exactly, it sort of felt like I just rubbed ever-so-slightly gritty milk into my face. And I could not see a big difference.
So, I decided to go all Mythbusters on this one and re-tool it until something happened or something exploded, whichever came first. Spoiler alert: nothing exploded. I know, guys. I know. If you want to stop reading now, I will understand.
Basically, I poured out all of the milk until I was left with a sticky baking soda paste at the bottom of my measuring cup, and I scrubbed that shit into my pores.
Bonus fact: this will also take off your fingernail polish and turn your make-up sponge sort of nail polish pink, and then you will panic and think you have somehow made yourself hemorrhage pink blood from your face. This will be the most exciting part of the process.
Then I took a shower to rinse it all off, because, lo, it was a fucking mess.
And the results? Well, my face sort of felt cleaner, I guess. My pores look the same guys. Except way redder where I scrubbed.
Sad face. Because irritated skin is not as cool of a result as an explosion. I have failed you. I apologize.
