Lately, the internet has been obsessed with these painful budget blackhead peel-off masks commonly advertised on Instragram and Facebook. The masks, usually made with charcoal, promise to pull all the gunk out of your pores, and may just take your top layer of skin off with it.
In the past, vloggers have filmed themselves applying and attempting to endure the pain of removing the sticky face mask. YouTuber Nicole Skyes decided to take things to a whole new level by covering her entire body with four bottles worth of the mask and ripping it all off on camera. Ouch.
It seriously hurts to watch.
"Hopefully it doesn't peel off my spray tan," exclaimed Skyes before covering herself in the cheap liquid mask and waiting two hours (WHY?!) for it to dry.
Girl, forget the spray tan. You better hope that you don't get your skin ripped off by this sh*t.
Despite taking the precautionary measure of shaving her entire body prior to applying the mask, removing it proved too painful, and Skyes ended up washing off some of the mask in the shower.
However, the entire thing wasn't a "wash."
"On the bright side, my skin feels super, super smooth," said Skyes. Yay?
Beauty is pain, I guess, but maybe stick to skincare that won't make you feel like you're being "scratched by 10,000 cats," thankyouverymuch?
