I usually don't do products reviews and I'm not paid to do this by the company. I just happen to be a very happy and surprised user of this incredible product called Remove-zit.
No, it's not for your face, it's for stained dolls!
If you are as ancient as me and if you have the dolls from your childhood you may have some stained plastic dolls too (like Barbies with green ears). I had my own loved doll from my early childhood hidden in a closet for decades with her face badly stained. I don't know what caused this but she was in a damp cellar for years before coming to America with me.
I tried removing the stain with most common products but nothing worked.
Once a while, along the years, I would take Natalina (that's her name) out and I tried removing the stains. No luck and the stain grew bigger and bigger with more yellowing around.
About a month ago, I came across this product while surfing around antique dolls websites. There were some photo samples but I wasn't sure if believing in it or not. The worst that could happen was to waste 20 bucks so I bought it.
It comes in a jelly-smelly paste that you have to smear over the affected doll parts. The miracle doesn't happen before your eyes, it takes days. You let your doll rest for a couple of days with her beauty cream on, then remove it and smear more until the stain has disappeared.
Natalina took a week or more but now, look at her! She's still ugly I know (LOL) but she's my oldest friend and I'm happy I managed to give her new life again. Now she can live out of the closet!! :-)
I know I've neglected this blog for longer than acceptable and time is running faster and faster. It seems like it's always Friday to me and Christmas was only a few days ago......! I have been insanely busy with my stamping business this year (which is a good thing in some respects) and I have caught the doll repainting bug..... it all started that I wanted to free myself from the collection of Barbie, Winx, Bratz dolls I had tucked away in a box. Some went on eBay as is and others got a make over first. One thing followed another..... and I ended up painting any doll that didn't run away from me...!
Then I eyed a Monster High I had around too and I was blown away to find out that they are so beautiful without the hideous factory paint job (sorry Mattel!).
This created Monster-High-fever and I have done 10 of these repaints so far, several of which still need clothing and some that have already gone to their new mommies.
I love their face features and their articulated bodies. Some have weird skin colors but I got over it and I even like green skinned Frankie!
I think I will show some of these girls for sometime here..... but I also have a BJD on the make and I'm giving a make over to some old dolls as well so I might be back soon..... if I still have somebody reading me!!
My only doll social life is on Flickr so please join me there is you are on it
