NUMBER ONE PLUS CONDOMS CURE ACNE

Number One Plus condoms are all the rage with female factory workers in Sihanoukville who have started using the product on their faces in the belief that it can eliminate acne. A factory worker from RCI factory in Sihanoukville, who asked not to be named, said that she got rid of her acne and acquired smooth skin after putting Number One condoms on her face for three days. "I used to waste a lot of money on acne creams but they never worked. I started using the condoms on my skin after my friend who works at a factory in Phnom Penh told me that they helped to get rid of acne," she said. Women who sell condoms near the Sihanoukville factory said that a lot of factory workers have started buying Number One Plus condoms, which cost 500 riels per packet.
