True or False: Does Laxative Work as a Primer?
See the surprising answer to this and more baffling and bizarre beauty remedies we tested
I'm not usually one to get squeamish about putting something unconventional on my face, but I have to say the application of this anti-diarrheal medicine was a little nauseating. But Pepto Bismol is supposed to clear skin and give you a glow, so I guess it's worth a try. It's a liquid, so it doesn't go on like a typical face mask, and it doesn't come off like one either.
After struggling for five minutes to cover my entire face (while the foamy pink gooeyness ran down my arm), it took nearly three times as long to get the stuff off. There was a weird filmy, pink sheen left over after it was all rinsed off ... enough to warrant me breaking out my Clarisonic and a face scrub to get rid of it. Long story short, I'll stick with more conventional face masks in the future.
