Vintage Beauty: Aspirin Mask

Follow my blog with Bloglovin



I decided to start with the aspirin mask, because my skin has been hellish, and it seemed quick, cheap and easy.

A few disclaimers:

I was broke out to start with
I have severe cystic acne which usually requires a dermatologist and a shot, and possibly an anti-biotic.
I'm dermatillomanic, so anything in/on my skin makes me crazy.
My skin can take a lot of abuse.


The Supplies

Aspirin (I used BC powder)
Water

The Instructions:


Crush the aspirin if needed
Add water to make a paste (a few drops will suffice)
Apply to skin and leave on as long as needed


The Scale:


Ease of use :

Easy Peasy (5)
I got this (4)
Ok (3)
Ikea level (2)
Rocket Science (1)

Cost:


Dollar tree (5)
Bargain Bin (4)
I'll budget it in (3)
This better work (2)
I had to take out a loan (1)

How does it feel*:


Spa-some (7)
Ahhhhhmazing (5)
Ok (3)
Gross (2)
OMFG! What did I just do to myself!?!? (1)

Did it work*:


Why did we ever stop doing this?(7)
Golden oldie (5)
Eh (3)
Well, that was a waste of time (2)
Wow. There's a reason no one does this anymore...(1)

*Worth more points due to importance

Over all result:

Will do this again 20-24 points
I'll add it to my arsenal 16-19 points
It'll do in a pinch 13-15 points
Not likely to try it again 8-12 points
No effing way 4-7 points

The Review:

Ease: 5. This was very easy. Since I used BC Powder, I didn't even have to crush the aspirin.
Cost: 5. I paid $1.97 for a whole pack of BC Power
Feel:1 This HURT. Like acid. It burnt so much.
Did it work:1. No. I broke out even more


Shelby helped me out and tried this one out with me. She also thought that it REALLY hurt, and made her break out worse

Conclusion:

The ease and cost don't make up for the pain and breakouts. I won't b doing this oe again, and I don't recommend it to anyone else either.
