- Homemade and easy
- Can be good for body acne
- Granules very, very messy and its not like it will form into a paste or a gel so it drips everywhere
- Didnt work for me
In the end i usually stopped using my aspirins as a face mask and used them on my chest and back acne. That feels quite good and refreshing but as for the face, it didnt work for me.

I only do this mask with honey. It is REALLY good at exfoliating. It does dry you out some (like a lot of masks) but with the honey it is antibacterial AND anti inflammatory. I think it's a wonderful mask and definitely worth trying. I also do just honey masks, which I love because the honey fights bacteria and attracts moisture.

Makes my skin extremely irritated and bumpy. No es bueno.

This mask reduces inflammation, and through its Salicylic acid constituent, causes the skin to shed a layer i.e. chemical exfoliation. Both of these things are advantageous to acne treatment. However, I would suggest two things in order to improve its performance: 1) Mix with both water and aloe vera gel in order to reduce irritation. 2) Do not overuse. If you have sensitive skin, do not use this more than once in a day. It WILL make things worse. I used it around my mouth 3 times in a day and it cause me to have little cracks in my skin. It took over a week to heal. Stupid mistake.

This is by far my HG facial product. I take 8 uncoated aspirin, put them in a little bowl, drop 1-2 drops of water (with a dropper) onto each pill. Then crushing the wet pills in the process, make a paste to which I then add half a teaspoon of raw organic honey, the real good stuff. I also will add about one drop of tea tree oil. I mix this all together until I have a good paste. Don't want it too runny. I apply this all over a clean face and neck. I usually let this set on my face for 30 plus minutes. After time, I rub it into my face to let the exfoliation happen then I wash it off. Baby smooth skin with a certain glow. Amazing. When I take the time to do this at least 3 times a week, my skin is amazingly clear and supple with minimized pores and "that glow". Only problem is a user problem..I usually don't have the time to do this 3 times a week. But that is only my fault. Even doing this once a week makes a difference.

I use clover honey and uncoated aspirin mask..and it worked wonder!
I had very bad cystic acne, my face was inflammed in redness...after two aspirin masks...the redness was gone..and the acnes were reduced significantly!
This mask is a great exfoiliant..it smooth out the dead skins and help on acne scars (not overnight)..
Best of all...it's sooo cheap! Highly recommend for any skin type!

It took me awhile to find uncoated aspirin but I finally found walgreens brand. Whenever I have a really bad pimple I always apply this and it cuts the healing time in half. Also it makes an AMAZING scrub and keeps pimples at bay

This actually works amazingly well! I am so pleased with the results. Been using it for a week and just after the first 2 days my skin was so much smoother and softer, and i no longer have those little clear bumps on my forehead and a lot less clogged pores. Also my skin cleared up and i have no acne at the moment (for now--will update in like a month to see if it keeps working). My skin looks pretty healthy, better than a week ago.
The aspirin is pretty rough feeling on your skin when you wash your face with it, but i think this exfoliates the skin pretty well.
A++++ highly recommended

Works wonders. The results are the same as if I had gone in for an expensive facial. I crushed two pills mixed the powder with a small amount of water then mixed it with my facial cleanser. I let it sit on my face for about three minutes then rinsed. Immediately, my skin looked brighter, and clearer. The next morning, it was very smooth. I will make this a weekly regimen.

Hey! I thought aspirin was my little secret! I started using aspirin as a weekly face mask about 3 or 4 years ago. I remember reading a dermatologist's account that salycilic acid (in aspirin) and aloe were the only effective things in helping skin recover from sun damage. I use a mortar and pestle to crush 2 uncoated aspirin pills into a fine powder. I mix this powder into a drugstore-variety mud mask and leave on my face (previously lightly exfoliated with a buffing pad) for 20 minutes. After rinsing thoroughly, I apply aloe vera to my skin. When that has soaked in, I apply a good, gentle moisturizer. I don't use the aspirin mask more often than once a week in case it could possibly irritate my normal-to-dry skin. I don't know if it's the mask or a fortunate set of genes, but my skin has fewer lines than many women my age...plus I enjoy the ritual of taking time out to do something nice for myself!

I really like using this mask! I use the powder aspirin and mix it with a face wash or aloe and scrub my face really well. I usually only leave it on for about 5 minutes. My face always feels really smooth and soft afterward! Usually use this about 1 x week. Cheap and effective!

Great, simple and effective skincare solution that's very cheap! I notice that if I haven't been taking care of my skin and I use this mask (3 tablets in honey to make mask) this really brings up the junk. I know some people complain about "never getting whiteheads and breaking out" after using this mask, but the action of bha (&equivalents) is to go into the pore and clean it out. That means if u have deeply ingrained crap in your pore it brings it up and there is a chance you could get a breakout. Note, I only get these if I have been lazy with aha's or scrubs to keep the surface layer debris free. This leaves my skin nice and clean and the honey keeps it feeling moisturized :-)

I use BC powder aspirin 1000mg/caffeine 65mg. I mix it with Cetaphil gentle cleanser. I use as a face wash, then let it sit on my face for about 10 minutes before I wash it off. I use the powder because I can never get the tablets to grind up as fine, and the caffeine seems to tighten my face a little. At age 58, with rosecea and some break-outs it is cheap and it works.

I found out about this mask from BubzBeauty on Youtube! I really like this mask for a number of reasons. It's cheap, moisturizing, treats my acne slightly, exfoliating, and the honey is supposed to be disinfecting. It's not a super wonder cure, but it does help to start treating pimples when they pop up, and you skin feels really soft afterwards.
I haven't had any of the bad reactions that other have written about, my skin seems to like this combo.
What I do -
take three uncoated aspirin, put a couple drops of water on each and watch them dissolve. Then I add about a teaspoon of honey and mix, it will turn really watery, and then layer it on your face and wait about 15 minutes. Gently rinse, if you want some exfoliation gently rub in small circles before you rinse.

I love using aspirin to exfoliate every morning (I have really oily and rough skin) and it works magic! I just crush up two tablets and mix it in with the lather from my Dove Beauty Bar (HG stuff!). As long as I don't scrub too hard--I barely apply any pressure when I'm using it--it leaves my skin much brighter and smoother. I have mild hormonal acne and I don't think this does anything to help it (nothing has) but it also doesn't make me break out either.

I tried this for a couple of nights in a row. I have oily/combination skin. after the first night, my face was less oily. The next night, my face was a little red. By the third night, my face was really dry and red. It's best not to over do it.

Ok so I tried this mask last night to see if it reduced redness and also the size of some spots I had on my face. I found it easy to apply but made sure that I added a little moisturizer to it so it didn't slide off my face. It stung a little at first, but quickly turned into a paste which I removed 15 minutes later. My skin looked a little red after I had first removed it but when I woke up this morning my skin looked GREAT!! Minimum redness and my spots were gone! This mask may not work for everybody but I definitely think you should try it rather than assuming it won't work.

I haven't tried this as a mask--would expect the salicylic acid to be somewhat drying, but roughly crushed and with a drop or two of water on pimples at bedtime. A great institutional remedy.

I tried this for 1 month, it didn't lessen my acnes nor made it worse.. I just didn't do anything for my skin.
