Beauty Most Unusual: Nightingale Droppings Facial Cream


Birds nest, crushed pearl powder, all of these are possibly different, unique Asian skincare techniques but Nightingale Droppings Facial Cream falls under the Beauty Most Unusual realm!

Bird poop in your moisturizer? They has it!

Check it after the jump!

I dunno about you but I'm not sure if I'm up for spreading bird sh..ahem...bird poop on my face. I've tried bird's nest and crushed pearl powder as I believe everything and anything that Asian's tell me about proper skincare but I may have to draw the line at Nightingale Droppings.

Supposedly the crap of a nightingale works as an incredible mask treatment for the skin by removing heavy makeup and leaving behind smooth and supple skin. Thankfully it's a fragrance free experience.

Alright, if I'm honest I admit I'm curious......

Now where can I find a nightingale do you think?

I've got something on a par.... I was once sent a jar of placenta face cream to try. Didn't say where placenta originated from and in the end I just felt too icky to touch it. Urgh.

I'm sorry to say that I bought and used this crap and it left my face looking like...SHIT. Why am I even surprised? Anywho, this crap completely ruined the texture of my skin; after using this crap religiously, I found that my skin had become rough and bumpy where once it was glassy and smooth. I thought it was all in my head and that a little bird crap wouldn't do SHIT to my skin, but I was wrong! Even my mother noticed the change and commented on it. Now I've had to spend $$$ on peels and retinol-treatments to undo the damage done by this stuff. >:-(

Caveat Emptor: THIS CRAP WILL MAKE YOUR SKIN LOOK LIKE SHIT!!!

Haha...I think I draw the line at droppings too. I remember there was an Oprah episode where this was mentioned too.

Actually, did you know that Japanese geisha used to smear Nightingale droppings as a kind of facial cream back in the day. I don't know if it worked, but that's what they believed in. Apparently, it used to be a luxurious item that only really successful geisha had.
