Gelatin Pore Strips/Face Mask

Hey Beauties! So, recently I have discovered an affordable option that is very similar to Biore Strips. Biore strips are very popular to get rid of those pesky blackheads, and all the other crud clogging our pores. If you have ever purchased Biore strips before, you will know that they can get a little pricey. So, I have a very affordable option that will work just as good!

You can use this method as a whole face mask, or use it in a localized area (nose, chin etc) to create a pore strip. This is going to be a peel off mask. But remember, beauty is pain!

Ingredients for a Full Face Mask:

1 Tablespoon (1 packet) Unflavored Gelatin

1 1/2 Tablespoon Milk

**Since unflavored gelatin comes in packages of 1 Tablespoon, it is ideal for a face mask. But if you only want to treat a small area, just half the recipe. If you use the recipe above for a pore strip, you will have a TON left over. 

Ingredients for a Pore Strip:

1/2 Tablespoon (half a packet) Unflavored Gelatin

3/4 Tablespoon Milk

To make it, all you have to do is just mix those two ingredients together, so that it looks like this:

Then pop it in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. When it comes out, stir it good so it can cool down and won’t burn your face. But hurry and apply it once it has cooled because it hardens to a silicone texture very quickly!

Now time to put it on our face! CAUTION- It does stink a little haha

If you applied a thin layer, leave on for about 10 minutes. If its a thicker layer, 20 minutes should work. Just make sure it is dried all the way. Unless it won’t work.

It will hurt a little! But afterwards, we can do what girls do and grossly study all the stuff we just pulled out of our skin :). I hope this has helped you. Check out the link below for my YouTube video associated with this blog post.

Thanks everyone!!

Homemade Crayon Lipstick

Hey everyone! So I made these lipsticks a while back, but I wanted to try them out for a little bit before I made a review about them. So there is only two ingredients to make these lipsticks! The only thing is, this process is purely Trial and Error to get the finish of lipstick that you want. I wanted a high pigmentation, so the recipe I found best is:

1 teaspoon of Coconut Oil

1 Whole Crayon

**You can actually use shea butter as well. If you want to do that, the recipe is

1/2 teaspoon of Coconut Oil

1/2 teaspoon of Shea Butter

1 Whole Crayon

So I only made 4 different colors with this recipe, But overall I love them!

There is a plum, pink, copper, and orange. I did not film me making these or take pictures. However the process is very easy! Take a pan and fill it halfway with water. Then take a small heat safe container, and put that in the middle of the pan. Now time to add the oil and crayon inside the small container. Make sure to take off the paper from the crayon first! It will melt quick, and when its done, put it in a container of your choice. and that’s it!

So now what you have been looking for, here are 4 pictures of the 4 different colors I have created :). Plum, pink, copper, and orange!

Overall, this cheap option creates some decent lipsticks. They go on very creamy, but I feel like after an hour or two, the wax in the crayons dries up and clumps up on my lips. The lipstick definitely smells like crayons, but maybe if you use the shea butter, it will help to get rid of the smell.

I have a YouTube video of me applying these lipsticks, and explaining more in detail my opinions on them. Here’s the link!

Thanks so much for reading! Please give me some love on my on my YouTube channel/video in the link above. It is a new channel and I would love some feedback from you guys. thanks 🙂
