I went to the grocery store. On the bottom shelf, beneath the droves of flavored jello, I saw the unflavored gelatin. This recipe was so easy my five-year-old could do it. A tablespoon of milk, a tablespoon of gelatin and 10 seconds in the microwave. I used an artist's brush and painted it on my nose and chin where I needed it the most. Another benefit to this recipe is that you dictate where the product goes, not the predetermined shape of a pore strip.
So I tried not to faint from the nasty smell (like a dirty crotch smell!) and painted it on and waited ten minutes for it to dry. Then the fun part - the reveal. And this worked! I was able to admire the gross blackheads that came out of my face and feel the gratifying peeling off of dead skin.
Bottom Line: The cost of the gelatin was $1.30. I already had the milk. And it worked!
Would I Do It Again?: Absolutely!
Another alternative for anyone not wanting to use the gelatin?
