Took care of the hubberzand (husband) the last few days, now he’s taking care of me. We’ve been watching Star Trek Enterprise the last couple of weeks, and today I wish that we could have the bounty of having eradicated the common cold like they have in the 25th century. Sigh.
I had Ed take a picture of me at my greasiest sickie moment just after I’d slapped on a pore strip. After removing the strip, I “convinced” him to put one on! I’m still not sure how that happened, or if I’m hallucinating from the Buckley’s. Hehe. He sounded mostly surprised that it stays on for a whole fifteen minutes. Next he’ll find out that he has to rinse off his nose after he takes it off.
After this box of pore strips is finished, I plan to use the DIY gelatin and milk method. It seems silly to post about it today when I haven’t done it, and even sillier since two excellent bloggers have written about it already. Barefoot Blonde has a post about a full face pore strip mask, and xovain‘s written an excellent blog about the drugstore pore strips vs. the DIY method. Best not to beat a dead horse writing on a topic that is already simple and well-explored.
Personally, I would look into trying Sea Bond and paper towel. I’ll let you know if I tear off a layer of skin in the process.
Peeled off Ed’s pore strip, and here’s the result:
Ewwwwww! More like “pass me a magnifying glass, it looks like a forest of sebum and blackheads!”.
There is a clear lesson in all of this after experimenting on the husband’s face: I could use pore strips less often and get away with it.
Next, we shall paint his toes! But not today.
