If squeezing pimples until they pop and ooze pus sounds appealing to you, then you'll want to check out the Pop It Pal. It's a fleshy, blemish-blowing novelty toy that lets you obsessively squeeze out "pus" without tearing apart your own skin.
The married couple behind it, Billy and Summer Pierce, came up with the idea one day while driving. Billy explains:
You see, one day, my wife and I were driving down the road.
"How awesome would it be if we could make a pimple that felt real and the pop was huge, just like those videos we watch?"
I thought: "You might be on to something Dear."
Maybe, just maybe, this means she would STOP picking on me all the time. Ladies and Gentlemen, I KNOW you know what I'm talking about.
So, I spent the next year figuring out how to make it happen.
It's now available in their online shop for $19.99. "Pus" refills are available for $5.99.
