Trend I Hate: Geisha Facials, Because I Don't Go Cuckoo for Caca

Who needs seaweed, primrose oil, or different kind of fruits when you can have feces on your face! New York Magazine recently came out with an article introducing the "Geisha Facial" available at Shizuka New York, a high-end Japanese spa in New York. This special facial uses all natural ingredients in addition to the "uguisu no fun" (sterilized nightingale droppings), which back in the day, 18th century geishas and kabuki actors used to clean heavy white makeup off their faces. In the modern day, Shizuka's poop apparently "makes the porcelain beauty of this Japanese icon accessible to the everyday person." At $180 for a 50-minute treatment, all I gotta say is "Holy crap!"
