Pore Strips &. Gelatin and Milk Face Mask

I came across this recipe for homemade pore strips years ago, and it works alarmingly well. I use it as more of a mask around the "t zone" and the results are like a horror movie for someone like me. The only ingredients you need are a packet of unflavored gelatin found near Jello in the grocery, and milk. Mix half a packet of the gelatin with 1-2 tablespoons of milk. This will be a creamy liquid texture. You microwave this for 10-20 seconds and apply to the face. I use an extra makeup brush to apply it. The smell isn't the best. I leave this on around 30 minutes. It tightens a lot when it dries, and peels off sometimes in 1 piece if you apply it evenly enough. This is a harsh mask for some, as it pulls out every little hair along with the impurities, but I love how it makes my skin feel to have that crud out.

I have used Biore Pore Strips before several times and they work so-so in my opinion. I never feel like they take out enough. Plus, they aren't cheap and I am a couponer so that does not make me very happy spending that kind of money for something I can do for $1.

Have you tried this mask recipe before? Let me know!

Next up, I just received Wen hair care products. Will my hair fall out like I keep reading about? I hope not!
