Would You Use Lube For Your Acne?

When it comes to unconventional zit creams, I've put toothpaste, baby powder, and even eggs on my face for a quick fix. But personal lubricant? Um, haven't tried that one. According to a recent story, Cambodian women have been doing just that. Apparently, rubbing the lubricant from Number One Plus condoms works quite well for shrinking pimples. We all know that the Pill can help fight acne, but this is another story. Check out an odd but funny commercial for Number One Plus, and let me know if you'd lube up your acne.

Um, why not just use proper acne treatment?

Why not? It's not like it's already been used or anything. I have horrible acne and anything that worked I would use. Where can I get these?

I know it's good to keep blackheads lubricated so they will slip out. I, however, have extremely oily skin so my blackheads never harden. Damn my goopy face :(

P.s. diorbaby I totally just pictured someone just casually taking a condom out and rubbing it on their face lmao! Imagine what people would think.

Its called facial moisturizer: buy some. Moisturizing even oily skin can help acne so thats probably why this supposedly works. But would I use it? No thanks, i'll stick to things meant for my face:)!

I'd use it. It's not like I'm gonna whip out a bottle of KY in the middle of the store and drizzle it all over my face. C'mon people, it's just lube. :D

If I had really bad acne and was desperate enough, I'd probably try it.

I can totally imagine the looks on my roomies faces as I pull out a condom and rub it all over my face. I'm thinking 0 to looney bin in 8.5 seconds.

Maybe. Viagra didn't start out as a "man's drug". I believe it was used for heart patients(?)initially. So, I guess things can evolve into cures for other issues. I know lots of women use ground up aspirin on their skin to clear acne; who knows what's next?

If it was clinically proven to work well, then I'm sure some company would develop their own brand of it without calling it lube and it would sell much better.

If it was proven to work, I'd use it.

Ok first off, I've never heard of Number One Plus brand condoms. Second, two of my least favorite words: 'lube', 'acne'. :( And third, I wanna make a crack about Cambodia, but I just cant bring myself to do it.
