    Default Just a wee problem..

    DH came home early, so after a nice walk in the snow, I handed him the baby reins and decided to treat myself to a nice face mask and a bath...

    The problem is that the face mask isn't washing off. I've tried soap and water, vinegar, nail polish remover.... I still look like the creature from the black lagoon...

    Help?

    You are NOT putting nail polish remover on your face!?!? Eeek.

    What is the mask made of? I've never encountered any that didn't wash off with warm water and a tiny bit of elbow grease. Or, there's the peel off kind, find the edge peel it.

    Did you put tar on your face? How bizarre. I've never heard of one that sticks like that.
    You are what you dare.

    Try olive oil? Maybe that would break it up some? That is awful!

    Pictures or it did not happen!



    ETA: there should be a 1-800 number you can call for help.

    It's the clay based kind. I was all excited about using it. It's getting progressively harder to blink and my excitement level has decreased dramatically. DH is scrubbing at my forehead with the green side of a kitchen sponge and has managed a tiny hole that is pretty red/raw. We've tried peeling it off with no such luck. Olive oil doesn't help.

    I didn't think about an 800 number. I'll check the bottle.

    And for your viewing pleasure... you can see our progress right above my eye... it doesn't look as red as it feels though...

    Well that's one way to exfoliate.

    I second the hot wet wash cloth.

    Wonder if there is any real downside to waiting and perhaps crumbling it off in the AM. Messing with it might create a problem that otherwise might not have existed. Per the directions how long are you supposed to have waited?

    I am thinking two things:

    Take one of them small hand towels/dish towels put hot water on it on put it over your face. I would be surprised if it does not soften

    or lather on something like cold cream, let sit.

    but seriously, for the love of Pete, stop scrubbing!

    Has this ever happened to your oven before? Maybe it's on the clean setting?!?

    Oh, wait. Never mind!


    I am sorry this is happening to you, but that picture...

    The instructions said to apply to damp face, wait 10-15 minutes, and wash off with warm water. I did all that. It didn't hold up to it's end of the bargain.

    I've got a hot compress lying over my forehead at the moment, we'll see if it helps.

    DD is terrified of me as well.... sigh.

    I couldn't find an 800 number, but google says that lemon might help. We don't have a lemon, but I might be brave enough to venture out to find one.

    Oh you poor thing. I have a lemon tree in my yard I'd gladly share to spare you the humiliation of going to the store, but it might take too long to send it. Will your DH not run to the store for you? lol I'm sure mine would think it served me right to go myself in your situation.

    Is there a local salon you could call for advice? Perhaps an esthetician could help you over the phone, or have you come in for professional help?
