Dude Seriously ? - Snail Facials

You know it's been a long time since you've blogged when you forget your own password.

Anyway, now that I've finally recovered it and am here (after a nearly 4-month hiatus), I just thought I'd disclose a beauty secret which involves slimy creatures crawling all over your skin... this, except more of them.

The next time you pass through Siberia, peep your head into the Russian salon owned by Alyona Zlotnikova so that someone can put some snails on it. Supposedly, the mollusk mucus contains glycolic acid and elastin which is good for rejuvenating the skin and protecting it from UV rays.

If you think that's bad, then I dare you to try some of the "beauty trends" mentioned in an a article from a year ago. In it the author talks about such gag-inducing concoctions as chicken bone marrow moisturizer, bull semen shampoo, and whale vomit perfume.


If those are the things necessary to obtain beauty,
I think I'll opt for being ordinary, thank you.


  1. I don't know if I wrote a comment or just thought about writing one, so if it's the latter sorry for getting roughly the same one twice haha.

    I'm pretty happy to stay on the ordinary train too by the sounds of it... yuck.

    P.S. Glad you're back! :)

  2. Not gonna happen. I'll keep my flaky skin, thank you.
