The first time I tried this aspirin mask, I really had bad acne all over my face. So I decided to just crush and powdered 2 tablets of aspirin and instead of making a paste-like mixture, I decided to add more water to make it somehow watery by tapping the mixture all over my face. Covering it one by one won’t be that easy because my face looks like an acne-farm that time! 🙂 It gives a tingling feeling, but that’s bearable. I even leave it on my face overnight! And when I woke up, checked my face in the mirror and I was amazed– “Omg, they’re gone!!!!”.. Its majority has vanished and dries up overnight! Though there’s still some pimples left, they’re not as bad as how it looks like the night before I used this acne mask. The redness on my face was also gone, and that’s expected because aspirin mask helps in reducing redness. All I know is that it works! It’s not only me, but many people also shared their aspirin mask review on acne.org and this mask got a high positive ratings.
But please be aware that if you’re allergic to aspirin, this aspirin mask is not for you.
