Pimple popping is a bizarre obsession that has been gaining the attention of bored people on Youtube spirals for ages. It starts with one video that somehow pops up after a ridiculous cat video and spirals into hours of watching these videos with horrified fascination. Then comes the self-judgment, eventual acceptance, and ultimately, the secret desire to have some real-life pimples to pop. Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something supremely satisfying about a good pimple pop.
At least, that’s what NSI International was going for when they created Zits, a goober-addicting pimple popping product for kids ages 4 and up. The packs come in different outbreak sizes so the fun can last for days without the trauma of actually being covered in zits. The pus-filled pimple pouches stick right on the skin to emulate a realistic pimple popping experience. Like real zits, pushing too hard can hurt a bit, so with the smaller, difficult pimples, it’s better to put them on the hand than the face. The adhesive is pain-free and easily peeled off when the pimples are popped.
The pimples come in a range of different sizes—some pop in one fell swoop and some squeeze out slowly in a thin string of goopy goodness. The pimple goop feels a lot like watery slime so have some tissues at the ready! Also included in each package is an adhesive bug tattoo. Parents who watch Dr. Pimple Popper will love sharing their pimple popping fascination with their kids and ZITS is also a great tool to explain the pimple popping process to young kids and tweens. In a society where hygiene aisles have a few dozen choices of acne products, for some reason, people can’t get enough of pimple popping.
