Elmers Glue Facial? – Elmers Glue Face Mask Review

Does glue really work as a face mask? I decided to try it out for myself. Here’s my Elmer’s glue facial experience. Elmer’s glue face mask review here.


So, does glue really work as a face mask? I decided to try it out for myself. If you are going to try a glue face mask too, make sure you use school glues as other types of glue could be toxic for your skin or inhalation.

Let’s say you don’t want to spend a lot on face masks…. or maybe you recently ran out of the facial mask you have been using. Check to see if you have any school glue in the house. Make sure it’s the non-toxic kind.

Here’s how my Elmers glue facial experience turned out.

1..First, I made sure to apply the glue to clean, dry skin. I rubbed pretty thick, generous amount on my face. You can use your fingers or a cotton ball. Make sure to keep the glue away from your eyes, mouth, and any hair (example: eyebrows).

2.  Let the glue dry completely. I used quite a lot and it took mine about an hour to completely dry. If you don’t pile it on quite as thickly as I did, it should take a shorter amount of time.

3.  Then, remove the glue by either pulling it off (slowly) or gently rubbing it off with a warm washcloth.

Results of the glue facial: I was actually pleasantly surprised. My skin felt very smooth and was shiny, in a good way.

I’m not sure I would do this all the time as it was pretty messy and took a long time dry. But, if you are wanting to save money or have run out of your regular face mask, school glue makes for an ok facial alternative. I probably wouldn’t do this too often and I would guess it would probably clog your pores and could make face problems worse.

    Just curious…what do you think the benefits would be of using a glue facial, and do you think any of the chemicals in glue could be harmful or worsen the appearance of skin? In my thinking, it would work wonders to pull blackheads out of pores, but I am always leery about applying random stuff to my face. I am all for inexpensive improvisations, but would love to hear your thoughts on that aspect.

      I would think it would be good for blackheads. I’m thinking since it’s non-toxic and made for school kids, it can’t be that bad…. I don’t know. I think I’ll stick to the more expensive products meant for the skin on your face.

    I am wondering if any blackheads were removed in the process or was shiny and smooth your only results? Thanks.
