A dad was left yelping in pain after applying a peel-off face mask to his eyelids, eyebrows and lips – leaving his partner and daughter in tears of laughter.
John Meechan had asked his partner Tracy Dougall to help cover his face in some of her blackhead face mask mix but when she refused, the 30-year-old decided to simply do it himself.
Unfortunately for the dad-of-two, he followed Tracy’s instructions to apply the mask “everywhere except your eyes” a little too closely, covering his entire face without realising how sticky the paste was, as reported by Daily Record.
John was unable to remove the mask himself when the time was up, and roped in Tracy and five-year-old daughter Paige to help, as the pair filmed their hilarious efforts.
The scaffolder, from Irvine in Scotland, said: “I asked Tracy to put one on and she said no so I thought, fine, I’ll do it myself.
“She said everywhere except your eyes, so I put it everywhere except my eyes. How was I to know you weren’t meant to put it on your eyebrows and lips?”
Tracy is left barely able to speak as she attempts to remove the mask from her partner’s eyebrows, breaking the news: “It’s actually waxing them I swear to God.”
John replies to say “I better have eyebrows” before Tracy asks: “It’s on your eyelid, why would you do that?”
Paige then warns her dad he’s in for a painful experience as she attempts to peel off the mask from his lips, only for him to yelp out: “You’re going to rip my lip off. There must be a better way of taking this off? I’m in so much pain.
“I need a fag break and I don’t even f***ing smoke.”
Tracy and Paige can’t contain their laughter as they notice he’s been left with no eyebrow on the left side, with Paige asking if she can wake up her sister Leah to join in.
John says he eventually managed to remove the mask completely, at a cost of losing almost all the hair he had on his face.
“In the end I had to wash the rest of with roasting hot water and nearly scalded myself,” he said.
“There’s a few hairs still left but not many. If this is what women have to go through to be beautiful, then I’ll stick with being ugly.”
