Placentas. For Your Face.


We are assured on the package that this super-economy-size bag o’ face masks is chock full of placentas. Face rescuing placentas. Premium placentas.

Okay, sorry, I really can’t hold it in anymore. EEWWWW!

I didn’t think it was possible to beat snail slimecobra venom and bee larvae as the I’d-prefer-the-red-hot-pincers facial treatments of choice, but this one is definitely a contender.

Saw these at Don Kihote store in Shibuya. If you’d like to be amazed by the weird goods there the next time you’re in Tokyo, a map to all Don Qi locations in Tokyo is on my other website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
