These gnarly lumps and bumps are the best of the best. In a new YouTube video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka, dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—names her five top pilar cyst pops of 2019. And, boy, are they good ones.
All of the clips featured have a little something special, making them stand out from the pilar cyst pack. Dr. Lee says the first cyst in the compilation, which is located precariously on a man’s forehead, looks like a popcorn-flavored jelly bean. The next comes out in a ribbon of bacon-like contents—complete with hair dye unexpectedly embedded in it. The third pilar pop looks like a macadamia nut, while the fourth looks like Slimer from Ghostbusters, according to Dr. Lee. Finally, the famed derm compares the last pop to a cherry pit.
While a 2019 wrap-up compilation is a little late coming out in April 2020, you will definitely be able to forgive the delay after watching these choice removals. This is 15 minutes of pure gross satisfaction.
