PIM­PLE PETE ($20)

Fashion (Canada) - - The Market | Products - —L.H.

takes the sat­is­fy­ing sen­sa­tion of squeez­ing zits and puts it in a board game. The game was cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dr. San­dra Lee (a.k.a. Dr. Pim­ple Pop­per), a Cal­i­for­nia der­ma­tol­o­gist who’s known for her graphic In­sta­gram and YouTube videos of drain­ing clogged pores of all shapes and sizes. Play­ers take turns try­ing to re­move the zits on Pete’s face with­out set­ting off the geyser of “pus” on his nose. If you’re still grossed out and un­con­vinced, know that dopamine—a neu­ro­trans­mit­ter pro­duced in the brain that de­liv­ers a sense of calm and plea­sure—is re­leased when you make an ex­trac­tion. Take that, ASMR.
