I would run home and whip up a batch of this right now, except I ate the last of my plain yoghurt for dinner last night!

in a pinch, you can also use other things as a base - some people apparently use straight honey. one woman on that message board said she mashed up kiwi and used that. that might sound intriguing to you - it did me - but then i just ended up eating the kiwis... i guess we had a similar problem ;)

In regards to the above comment:

I use Eucerin lotion as a base.

At first, I was afraid to try this mask, thinking it would make my combo/dry skin even worse, but it's actually made it much smoother with no irritation or drying.

hoorah for dollar store asprin.

Wow, this is super! My girlfriend Brittany just made this and it's all over my face now. I Googled for "aspirin mask" before trying it, and came up with this webpage.

Everyone raved about it, so I decided to give it a try. Brittany says she's so lucky to have a boyfriend that likes doing facials with her -- what do you think?

Doh! I see you already linked to that page, jess.

yup, brittany is pretty lucky to have a boyfriend willing to get goopy with her... but then, you are pretty lucky to be a guy that will do it - am i wrong?

i convinced my boyfriend chris to have a facial with me a few weeks ago and afterward he couldn't stop staring at how clean the pores on his nose were. he said it was nice, but he wouldn't do it again for another six months. there is no logic to his unwillingness to do it more often aside from his absurd fear of being a man who gets a facial on a regular basis.

marshall, you must talk to him ;-).

Well, I don't know if there's much I can say to him. Maybe he just needs a metrosexual support group. (Just kidding!)

Anyways, the mask made my skin feel great! I wanna do it some more!
