Make a guess: what is this facial tool?

facial tool Make a guess: what is this facial tool?

I am black. I am smooth. I am handy. Can you all make a guess what tool am I? Hint: I can make your face beautiful! (But I can’t give you bigger eyes if that’s what you’re thinking!)

Okay, have you all seen this facial tool before? I won’t be surprised that some of you have used or are using this too. Maybe not in the same design, but close enough when it comes to the functions. Here’s another shot with the ribbon removed. Maybe that’ll give you a better idea.

Last week, I spotted a tub of silica gel at a photo processing shop and promptly remembered Stella had mentioned using these in my last post to keep skin care and cosmetics dry and moisture free.

Plus, they’re much more user friendly as I can put these gels into little plastic bags and place them where required.

I was told recently during a TCM treatment session that my constant backache is due to the epidural anaesthesia administered to relief my labor pain some years back. I hadn’t thought of that although Ive heard of the link between epidural anaesthesia and postpartum back pain. In fact, this is why some women I know refused to have the pain relief.

However, according to this medical source, any increased risk of low back pain after epidural anaesthesia is small and transient.
