What Did Dr. Pimple Popper Want Rhylee Gerber From ‘Below Deck’ to Stop Doing?

Rhylee Gerber from Below Deck is known for her “no-nonsense” approach to skincare. On a number of occasions, the deckhand has posted to social media about how she handles acne.

Rather than getting a facial or dropping some dough on expensive acne creams, Gerber grabs a tube of toothpaste and applies a dab to the offending pimple. When she was pulled over by a cop during her road trip from Florida to Alaska, she was rocking a few toothpaste spots, which she found to be pretty funny.

Although Gerber swears by her toothpaste treatment, Dr. Sandra Lee, otherwise known as Dr. Pimple Popper thought Gerber might do better with a dermatologist-backed regimen. Lee sent a tube of BP Spot Treatment to Gerber and the deckhand test drove the product. What’d she think?

She has a few trouble spots after traveling for the last week

Gerber thoroughly cleaned her skin and applied a mask. She’d been traveling for the last week and a half and was excitedly anticipating her delivery from Lee. “Basically long story short, I believe Dr. Sandra Lee, aka Dr. Pimple Popper, her office, basically saw me spot treating my face with toothpaste,” she shared on her Instagram story.

She shared they told her to “Stop it. Use my new skincare product,” Gerber says, showing the box to the camera. “That’s what I’m going to do. I’m cleaning my face. I just had a breakout, on the plane. I’m going to go ahead and try this out and see how it does.”

Gerber adds she is going to report back and was super excited to use the product. Plus she adds constantly using toothpaste for acne treatments can get expensive.

This is what she found when she applied the spot treatment

She said, “The coolest thing about this spot treatment, is that I cleaned my face, rinsed that mask off and applied it. Actually, two cool things. A, it’s from Dr. Sandra Lee, the Pimple Popper,” Gerber remarks. “That’s pretty f**king bada**. I’m so excited she thought enough of me to send me some treatment and get me off that toothpaste kick. So thank you, Dr. Sandra Lee.”

“Also, the other really bomb feature of it, is I’m not walking around with white spots of peroxide Crest and teeth whitening all over my face,” she exclaims. “Which makes for a really great day, especially because I tend to forget about it. And get pulled over by cops for speeding or go to the grocery store. Or if someone wants to take a picture with me.”

She adds she can treat her face and not see any of the treatment actually on her face. Gerber returns to the camera and says the spot treatment is on. “It says to apply one to three times daily,” she reads on the tube. “I think that depends on how aggressive your acne might be. I’m going to give it overnight and check in the morning.

Showbiz Cheat Sheet reached out to Gerber to find out what her acne looked like the next day. She laughed and said, it was actually “worse.” A few users reported the same result saying their acne became redder and worse than before. However, others found the product to work well even on cystic acne.
