I read Snail Facial as Slow Face

The rest of the world always trails behind the Japanese.

And when they're done, you can celebrate French cooking with some escargot!
 
2013-07-13 08:30:01 PM  
Well, that article had absolutely nothing to offer you'd expect from the Japanese.

"Snail facial" is a euphemism for lesbian sex?

Until someone runs in and throws salt on the face with snails on it.

Goddammit Japan.

Not even going to try a GIS.

Nope... never going to lose that mental image.

Sticky facials can be had much more cheaply at various farker's houses.

/Cool story bro:  My friend's very Christian wife got the shock of her life when she was looking for a beauty salon online and typed 'facials' into google, in they days before they filtered search results by default...

I've seen that movie.  "Conch Spit" is effective tentacle repellent, though I swear some of the poor girls almost drown.

When I was a kid, one wall of the apartment complex we lived in used to get COVERED in
farking SLUGS every time it rained.

Us kids LOVED to go outside after the rain with our baggies of salt and toss salt up onto
the wall and watch the slugs shrivel up and fall off the wall.

Not too far removed from tentacles, so not surprised.

I'll be glad to take 10% of the profit of any Farker that uses my Snail Penis Enlargement Therapy Treatment Idea and bings it to life.

snail facial=gooey gash smothering?
 
2013-07-13 08:59:28 PM  
And by "snail", they mean "terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusc", amirite?

/oh... that is right. Huh.

The atomic bomb did more damage to Japan than anyone expected.
 
2013-07-13 09:01:03 PM  
Sorry Japan, this idea came from Chile and there's also a spa in Russia offering the live snail treatment. Better luck next time.
 
2013-07-13 09:02:03 PM  
No thanks-

Do a google search on snail parasites
 
2013-07-13 09:03:08 PM  
SHUT UP JAPAN
 
2013-07-13 09:08:49 PM  
Slowest facial ever.
 
2013-07-13 09:12:25 PM  
No, it's not. Every few weeks someone decides to point out something weird a couple of people (or in this case one salon) have done in Japan and claim it's a new trend. You could find some weirdo's habits in the U.S. and do the same thing.

Japanese are odd

That has been my going theory for years.

Coming, slowly, to a salon near you!

I prefer a clam facial, but to each his own.

Look on the bright side, if you get hungry during the treatment, a snack's RIGHT THERE.

Really, paying £161 for slime tracks when so many manga reading kaishains would be more than happy to provide them for free.
 
2013-07-13 09:52:18 PM  
See, now *this* I really didn't need to know.

Subby could really do with a snail facial,

/By which I mean a slug to the face.

Go down, then blow your load in her... in that order.

Centipedes are better.  Their tiny legs really scrub the pores and their feces is rich in anti-oxidants and exfoliants.

When I was a lad in Chicago, this old-school Italian market had bushels of golf ball-sized snails for sale.  I'd buy a dozen, put 'em in water, and soon they revived.  Little farkers can live a long time  sealed up in their  shells.

When I was done playing with them, Mom would cook them in garlic butter.  Yummy!

But how else are you supposed to clean that out? If she stands up, it drips all over the carpet.

Here's the site from the spa chain for the treatment.

http://www.ci-z.com/sp-esthetic/escalgo.html

Despite the photo and video, it doesn't appear that they actually use the snails on the customers' faces, only an ointment made with an 'extract' from the snail slime (probably at miniscule concentrations, how much slime can 5 snails produce?)

Interestingly, the very first line of the description says that it's a recent boom in Korea that's now being made available in Japan. So, not the 'world's first'.
