A woman whose eyebrows fell victim to an aggressive DIY face mask has released the hilarious footage.
Genella Pabianes Carabbacan, 22, from Isabela in the Philippines, revealed she had been given two packets of a charcoal mixture for removing blackheads.
However in her excitement Genella failed to read the instructions, which advises against covering hair and eyebrows.
The dramatic video shows her struggling to remove the sticky mixture, before it rips out her eyebrows.
Genella said: ‘My friend gave me the face mask and said it will get rid of the dark spots on your face. I said “oh really?” and he gave it to me for free.
‘I was so excited I didn’t ask anything more. I didn’t read the instructions, because I just really wanted to remove the blackheads on my face.’
Genella applied the mask and let it dry on her face for around 15 minutes. But when she went to peel it away, it was stuck to the hairs on her eyebrows.
Genella’s brother Mark filmed her – struggling to contain his laughter – as she cried while desperately trying to peel off the mask.
The siblings spent around three minutes gradually removing it – along with Genella’s eyebrows.
She was left with most of the hairs pulled out and was forced to shave off the remaining hair off because of the damage.
The dramatic footage quickly went viral and several beauty clinics came forward to offer Genella microblading and threading to restore her look.
Genella admitted she was left crying with horror, but also saw the funny side.
‘I was just crying because I didn’t have any eyebrows,’ she admitted. ‘I had to shave the rest of the hair for them to regrow properly together.
‘It was funny, and emotional. But it was more down to my stupidity. I should have read the instructions,’ she admitted before adding: ‘The lesson is to always check and research cosmetics before using them.’
