Have you ever did anything stupid, knowing it was stupid but did it anyway?

The other night I decided to use Nair for my sides of my face and top lip this was recommended strictly for the face area.
Well stupid me I was out of the face stuff and found some leg & underarm stuff in the very back of the bathroom cabinet so I decided to use it ignoring the boy did I
I put some on my face (like a beard looking) OMG it began to sting & slightly burn but NO I wanted to suck it up and went ahead and left it on for 5 mins.
I use a warm washcloth to wipe it off and YES it worked great but my face was red then it got itchy and burning I wanted to scream I slightly wash the area and put some Cortizone10 yes! It helped but the next day my face was jacked up ( good thing I'm a SAHM )

Thanks for listening just wanted to share and

  • I learned not to mess with my face when I was very young. I put my moms 24 hour lipstain all over my face and it did not come off. I washed my skin raw then tried rubbing alcohol and it worked but hurt BAD. If its not meant for my face I would not try it lol. I would say my mistakes are more so with life choices not beauty products.

  • When I was little I had some glittery nail polish and one day I decided I wanted glittery eye shadow but I didn't have any. Guess what my dumbass decided to use. Yeah. It hurt so freakin bad! I'm surprised I didn't do any serious damage.
