It feels (and looks) like the real thing.
By now, most of us know not to squeeze zits. Doing so could cause an infection or damage your skin. But there’s a reason why we still do it, and why so many people are obsessed with watching videos showing a massive zit erupting like a mini volcano. Thanks to one couple, you can now squeeze with safety using the Pop It Pal.
This now-viral toy is a piece of silicone with 15 holes, each filled with the brand’s all-natural (read: fake) “pimple pus.” By simulating the real-life pimple-popping experience, this product allows you to satisfy your picking habit without hurting your skin.
The complete package, which also includes a refill of the pus, is available on the company’s site for $19.99.
“We love that disgusting little habit nobody likes to talk about,” Billy and Summer Pierce said about their new toy on the website. “Yup, it is our unique obsession....and I have a feeling it might be yours too. Don't worry. You've found your safe haven here in our little spot in the great big Digiworld.”
The pimple-popping community has, in fact, rallied behind the Pierces. With a 4.6/5 star rating on Facebook, this new product is exceeding many reviewers’ expectations.
“I can not stop playing with this gross, satisfying little toy,” wrote one respondent, who also called it a “great stress reliever.” Another had this to say: “Lots of fun to pop!! My 3-year-old and 5-year-old even love doing it!!! Easy, simple instructions. And, you can refill it and pop it again!”
“Just what I needed!” commented a satisfied reviewer. “Perfect with every pop.” So instead of popping the real thing and risk damaging your skin, order a slab of silicone and squeeze to your heart’s content.
