People Are Now Using Hard-Boiled

Unexpectedly, the delicious hack actually worked — and when it started to crumble halfway through the tutorial, provided him with a well-deserved snack.

“Oh my gosh, this is actually working really, really well,” he said. “This kind of feels like a really cold SiliSponge but it smells like sewage, like eggs, so that’s a turnoff — but it’s actually doing a pretty good job.”

“I really like how cold this is,” he added. “It’s like super refreshing, too!”

Inspired by his efforts, fellow beauty blogger Esther Gbudje (a.k.a., houseofsienna) also decided to give the hack a try this week, and got equally amazing results.

“The egg did give me the flawless look I was going for, and it doesn’t absorb any product at all,” Gbudje told Allure. “After each application, I cleaned the egg with wipes before applying another product on my face, so I would say it worked for me.”
