Can you use glue as a face mask? I decided to try it out for myself. Here’s my Elmer’s glue facial experience and Elmer’s glue face mask review.
Elmers Glue Facial? – Elmers Glue Face Mask Review
So, does glue really work as a face mask? I decided to try it out for myself. I will do just about anything for a blog post!
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. Mine dried in about 30 minutes.
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.
