Months ago I mentioned to The Gorilla that I thought his pores were clogged. It was a random comment that I probably made when I was fresh from a facial.
For some reason, he really latched onto the idea of the pore strips I suggested as a solution. He has been bugging me off and on about it since.
Truthfully, I just didn't think they would work. I remember when the Biore pore strips first came out and most of the beauty magazines acted like it was only a tiny bit better than duct-taping your face. I never tried them myself and gave in to trying them on my husband when he agreed to let me use it as a lazy beauty post.
Here's his handsome face pre-strip.
A close up of the reason he was subjecting himself to the strips.
The instructions say to wet your nose. We found it worked best when your nose was not just damp, but really wet. The Gorilla squeezed a wet washcloth onto his nose just before application.
I didn't get a picture of that because I was laughing.
We set the timer. At the end of ten minutes, the strip felt hard and stiff like paper mache.
Time to peel! At this point, I was still only half invested in this experiment.
Stunned Silence. Okay, not really. Shrieking. Lots and lots of shrieking.
I can't stop showing you pictures. They're captivating, really. But there is one shot that really did me in.
I do not suggest that you try this at home with your significant other. Some things should remain private.
