Six Strange Beauty Products

In today’s day and age, we’ll try just about anything to achieve eternal youth and beauty, including things that might make the average person go ‘no way.’ Read on to determine how far you’d go for the love of beauty.

cupron-pillowcaseIf you’re a born multi-tasker, you might want to try the Cupron Pillowcase (US $45.99). It’s a complexion-enhancing pillowcase that uses natural copper to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crows feet around the eyes and improve the skin’s overall appearance while you sleep. Now wouldn’t that be a dream.

slendertone-faceNow we’re firm believers that real beauty comes from the inside, but we were a little intrigued when we learned that a facelift can come from the inside too. Slendertone Face (€300) is designed to restore the youthful shape to your face by retraining the delicate facial muscles with small electrical charges. Increased muscle volume plumps, lifts and tightens and combats the signs of sagging, delivering a facelift from the inside out.

collagen-marshmallowsThis is one beauty treatment that just may be a tasty treat. Whether it works, now that’s a different story, but these wrinkle-busting Collagen Marshmallows may be worth the extra calories if they do. These plump and juicy marshmallows (US $15.99) contain 3000mg collagen peptides per pack, and are said to pump up the body’s collagen levels, in turn aiding skin flexibility, softness and resiliency.

mothers-moon-breastmilk-soapsWe’ve all heard the health and beauty benefits of milk, but we prefer ours straight from the farm. Mothers Moon Breastmilk Soaps are made from the breast milk of the company`s owner. According to their website, this soap (US $3) is mixed and molded on the full moon, then rests for two moons before being lovingly wrapped.

profoot-flex-tastic-gel-toe-relaxerWe can’t walk around barefoot all day, but we can correct foot problems with the new Profoot Flex-Tastic Gel Toe Relaxers (US $9.99). These little numbers slip easily and comfortably over the toes, stretching them into their natural position and alleviating the damage caused by tight shoes and poor posture. Our Editor’s huband loves them!

supersmile-tongue-cleanersApparently brushing and flossing is just not enough for some people, but now you can smile more with the Supersmile Tongue Cleaners (US $22). These ripple-edged tongue cleaners provide fresh breath by removing all the odor-causing bacteria that has been hibernating on your tongue. Simply bend a cleaner into a “U” shape and scrape your tongue with the rippled side.

    Ha! It’s amazing what’s out there. I did a somewhat similar round up and my top pick for weirdest product was the face trainer (here: hhttp://www.examiner.com/x-9539-NY-Beauty-Industry-Examiner~y2009m6d1-Top-5-weirdest-beauty-buys-1-the-Face-Trainer). But I dunno, I think the mother’s milk might take the cake…

    LOL – I don’t know about anyone else, but I do not sleep FACE DOWN on my pillow! If you sleep on your side, does only half of your face improve? And what if you sleep on your back? :-)
