In This Case, Maybe a Product Photo Wasn’t The Hottest Idea
Royal Jelly Essence! Ooo, this face mask promises to use the rejuvenating power of distilled nectar of the bee-gods to transform my face into a paragon of dewy freshness!
It’s not until I get it home and look a little more closely at the package that I wonder hmm, what are those round white things in the middle of the honeycomb in the photo? Surely they’re not…DISGUSTINGLY WORMIFORM BEE LARVAE?!
Ewwww! They are!
So, what do you think? Is the yuck-o-meter reading of a skin treatment made from bee grubs worse than the one for that face cream geisha used to use, the one made from nightingale poop?
