Slimy: Tokyo Salons Offering Snail Facial Treatments

Put it in her mouth!

You know what helps keep your skin young and healthy looking? Keeping it moisturized and not baking yourself in the sun all the time. Also, $243/hour snail facials. Or at least a growing trend in Japan would have you believe so. Me? I'm smart enough to know frogs and toads are where it's at? You ever rubbed a frog on your face before? You were a weird kid.

The treatment involved allowing a special breed of African snails to travel around a customer's face.


"The mucus left behind by the snails slows the aging of skin cells," according to a spokesperson for the Clinical Salon in Tokyo.

I call shenanigans. This is just another one of those ridiculous beauty fads like that one where you put your feet in the fish tank and the little fish eat the dead skin off your toes and give you hepatitis. Except this one costs $243/hour, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHY YOU AND I ARE GOING TO OPEN A SALON. I can always find snails climbing around on the side of the apartment building after it rains. We should also do bikini waxes.

Hit the jump for a video news report.

Thank to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he sells $400/hour blindfolded snail facials but uses cheap slugs instead!

    As a reply to a girl that got disgusted by the fact that I cooked and ate sea snails I said that someday someone will say that snail mucus is good for your skin and them women will be paying to have snail mucus rubbed in their faces. One week latter I saw an ad about a cosmetic made of snail mucus and now this.

  • Beanhimself

    I successfully masterbated to this.

  • I'm good...I don't like sticky or slimy stuff on my face anyway.

  • Fercho

    I'm sure Jabba is somehow into this.

  • Banana Bender

    I have a suspicion this was used in an episode of Penn and Tellers Bullshit! program where they made up bollocks facial treatments and tried to convince people it was working.
    Why am I not surprised someone is actually doing this.

    You're not wrong, I came here just to point that out. Yeah, they're ripping off Penn and Teller. Dudes should sue.

  • Prometheus

    Hell it seems you can go to Japan and open a salon that offers all sorts of treatment.

    "...Yeah just let me rub this dog feces on your face. It DEFINITELY slows the aging of skin cells."

    You don't need to go to Japan. Just go to any place full of women with money and get some publicity.
    Japan weren't even the first ones...

  • Sh17C0que

    I thought that would just make it a mutilated penis.

  • Closet Nerd

    "Awwww, its in my raccoon wounds!"

  • I'm thinking I shouldn't ask.
