Bizarre Beauty

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 05/20/2013 - 5:44 PM

It’s no secret that women (and men) will go to great – and sometimes strange – lengths to get gorgeous. From sanding off unwanted hair in ancient Babylonia to Arabian women of the past dipping their hair in camel urine for sleek and shiny locks, bizarre beauty products and treatments are nothing new. These are five of today’s craziest get pretty trends; most definitely not for the faint of heart.

Placenta Face Cream: Using either sheep or lamb placenta, the face cream is said to erase fine lines and wrinkles, improve elasticity, and bring back a youthful suppleness to skin. Also known as “living cell therapy,” the skin care product is nutrient rich and safe for sensitive skin – not sensitive stomachs.

Snake Massage: If you find yourself in Israel, in need of a massage, and possessing a little extra bravery, a snake massage might be just the thing you’re looking for. Heavy king and corn snakes slither up and down your body and over your face giving you a deep tissue massage. Don’t worry though, they are non-venomous.

Snail Slime Cream: Containing snails’ mucous secretion, this bizarre beauty product is said to be a miracle acne treatment, burn healer, and spot and scar fader. The gooey goodness is a glycolic acid and elastin powerhouse; perhaps that’s how French women stay so young?

The Geisha Facial: Don’t be fooled by the demure name of this wacky spa treatment. The Geisha Facial – aka the bird poop facial – uses powdered nightingale droppings for softer, brighter, more nourished skin. Sounds gross, but if it can give us the crystal clear complexion of a geisha, it may be worth it.

Bull Semen Hair Masque: Salons all over the globe are offering this deeply conditioning treatment claiming to leave hair soft and shiny. The bull semen is protein rich, non-greasy, and stored in the refrigerator. Looks like Cameron Diaz in Something About Mary knew what she was doing!

How far would you go to get lucious locks and a crystal clear complexion?

Wacky, Weird & Different Beauty Products

Working with beauty products and fragrances all day long, we come across some really weird, wacky or just plain strange products. It could be the actual product, the name, or the packaging itself. Are these products as weird to you as they are as strange to us? Let us know if you'd use these on a daily basis!

Let's start with Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline perfume by Bvlgari. The product is wonderful, however, the bottle confuses me a bit. Do you spray it upside down, right side up...which side is right side up? Hm.. like I said, weird but lovely product!Check out the bottle here.

Any cigar lovers out there? One gift set that they'll be sure to love is the Cuba Variety by Cuba for men. This cologne gift set comes in a 4 piece variety with cuba gold, blue, red and orange and all are edt sprays. This set has been said to be "hard to ignore" and while it may be a 'different' type of gift set to me, that doesn't mean it's a bad thing!

Need some Fudge Fat Hed? Don't judge...maybe you do! Fat Hed firm hold texture paste is great if you need a firm hold on your hair. This product gives great shine to hair, plus has great hold and texture upon application. So if you need a 'Fudge Fat Hed' all day, this product will keep a firm hold on your head all day long!

How about this one...this sounds lovely! A fragrance with notes of orange flower, white peach, mandarin, sandalwood, heliotrope, bergamot, vanilla, coconut water, tonka bean, skin musk, and tiare flower, how is this strange, bizarre, weird or wacky? Well, it's Harajuku Lovers Sunshine Cuties 'G' fragrance by Gwen Stefani. This not being her only Harajuku fragrance, she has lots lots more, including Harajuku Lovers Baby, Harajuku Lovers Love, Harajuku Lovers Music, Harajuku Lovers Lil' Angel and even more! Enough said.

As if Bratz dolls aren't weird enough, who would think they'd make a perfume for Bratz dolls lovers? The scent has notes of citrus scent for little girls. Would you let your daughter wear Bratz perfume?
