Mixing Elmer's Glue and water to make an acne mask...does it work? Give your advice @ Lovelyish Advice here...
i HAD to click because...really? elmers glue? i'm def going to say....yeppers. go for it. take pictures. send me the pictures.
I said this on the other one: Yes, don't try it. Just seriously don't. It doesn't work. Stick to over-the-counter items if you're concerned. They may take a while to kick in, but they work better than elmer's glue.

Bad idea. Come on! It's glue, for goodness sake. Plus, no matter how much water you put in it, you are going to have to walk around smelling like a kindergartener's macaroni art piece all day. Just buy some Noxema if you're so concerned about your face.
Haha, I Know it's good for your pores.My friend Cassie and I used to just randomly put elmer's glue on our faces.
She had bad acne!It slowly went away!She was so happy! lol
So go for it!

You're going to put glue on your face? Seriously? How about sandpaper for exfoliation?
Seriously. Glue? If you're going to use something around the house, try doing homemade masks or something.. There are homemade masks you can make at home using what you have. But no glue, please.
i dont think so, it's glue so id assume there might be some harsh chemicals, and it would probably leave residue and clog your pores even after cleaning your face. Believe me i have horrible acne im taking accutane. All the home remidies in the world couldnt help acne. If its asingle pimple, go get spot treatment with Benzoyl peroxide as a main ingredient. It will speed the healing time up a lot. If theres a PROMINENT white head, wash face thoroughly, then gently squeeze with two q-tips and stop before it bleeds. Immediately put spot treatment on after.
@pawnshop_heart@xanga - the macaroni salad at my school smells like elmer's glue. it looks like it too o_o
@my_favorite_song@xanga - Ewwww...that's just wrong. *LOL*

Putting glue on my face? Eh, I think I'll pass.
Hmm. I'd probably stick with something else.
What if your eyebrows peel off?

it was always so difficult to get all the pieces of glue off your hand and now you slather it all over your face? no no no.
no way jose. glue is for arts and crafts not skincare.

Think about it. It's formulated for kids, who are likely to try to eat it, so it's 100% safe and will not hurt your face.I've heard of I think Kate Hudson? doing this. I'd try it.
I've never heard of it. I doubt it works and I am not going to try it. i'd rather spend my money on acne trearment.

I saw this on youtube, a girl with the username: anneorshine actually tried this. She already has good skin or so it seems already.. So I don't know. There are a lot of products you may never thought you would use (like aspirin, it's actually very common NOW). I wouldn't try it unless a lot of people have but if it really does work, it may actually be comparable to other skincare products.
I can see why people would experiment glue with acne because glue probably dries up the pimple but to put it all over the face might actually be too drying. If anyone is actually willing to try it let us know if it works! If more than 100 people tried it and has good results, then that probably means this glue mask is quite promising.
i've tried it, and it wooorks. if you put it on your nose and let it dry ALL the way, it'll pull blackheads out too.

I used to put glue on my skin all the time when I was little. I would guess it would work just like pore strips do. It would probably pull out whatever's clogging your pores when you peel it off.
Mask is not that expensive, I would rather to use something that I know I can sue the company if anything seriously goes wrong
Yeah I'll try it on my nose. Hah. I used to put it on my hands all the time and let it dry and peel it off. I doubt its harmful... just dont get it in your eye.
i say try it, and tell me your results.
Gross. is it safe for the face? if that really worked, might as well sell glue instead of 100 of dollars for breakthrough products.
THAT'S ONLY IF YOU DON'T EAT IT FIRST! LOL!
Glue? I'd say go for the spirit gum version.
are you kidding me?save that glue for snorting kiddos!
@IntheGoldenWest@xanga - PUN!

It's hypocritical how many of these comments talk about chemical concern and then they suggest using over the counter products... Elmers Glue is non-toxic. It can't be any worse than neutrogena. FULL of chemicals, but the funniest thing is the person who put it down and is taking accutane. That stuff is horrible for you.
We are told these 'fancy' products are for the face because the TV tells us so. If some fancy celebrity says this works, I guess people would buy into it.
I put elmers glue on my hands rub it in a little bit wait for it to dry but not all the way, then over a trash can or plate I peel it off after my hands seriously feel amazing!!! I just wanted to know if it would work for other parts of your body example: face, elbows, feet, etc.!!! So if you have dry hands i seriously recommend elmers glue!
Read my testimonial on the boards of my experience with using Elmer's Glue as a facial peel.
It has worked wonders for me. I'm happy I tried it.
I just tried it. It hurt slightly when taking it off-the same feeling when waxing your uni brow area. At first I was surprised when I saw more whiteheads on my face then before. But then I figured out that there were very few blackheads left and my face was free of oil and was very clean. Taking it off was a bit of a pain because a couple of areas were spread too thin, but just used a soft face brush to get that off. I then washed my face with clean and clear morning burst, applied the toner, and put benzyl peroxide gel on my face, and it looks great and will probably be fabulous tomorrow.
elmer's glue is non-toxic and safe. im using it now.
