Chrissy Teigen with pore strips is all of us with pore strips

Her description is just *too* real

Yep. Chrissy Teigen is back at it again with being the most relatable person on this planet. And we’re back at it again with wanting to be her bestie (who are we kidding, this is an always thing!).

This time, it’s about the oddly satisfying process of removing pore strips. Of course.

It’s no secret that ripping a pore strip off your nose is one of the most fulfilling things ever, but taking a second to look at all that gross gunk that’s no longer in your face is the stuff of absolute dreams – and Chrissy is totally on board.

Along with the most hilarious pore strip selfie, EVER, Chrissy gifted us with the most detailed and accurate account of how she likes to remove and dispose of her Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. Can confirm: She is literally ALL of us.

Shared on her Instagram Stories, the star is seen in bed with her hair in a towel and a pore strip on her nose and chin. She says (in the creepiest of voices, might we just add), “I like to pull these off, slowly, and tilt them towards the light so I can see each tiny mountain. And then I like to take my finger and brush the blackheads to the side, so I can see their length”. 

Yep, we just can’t. Her description is just *too* real. There’s nothing quite like ripping off your pore strip and having a good look to see if it has actually worked. We’re not saying it’s glamorous, but you can’t deny the whole process is so intensely satisfying.

“After that, I take the strip and I fold it into quarters,” she adds.

“That concludes my story titled, ‘If Hannibal Lecter loved Bioré Nose Strips.’”
