Isn't it snail-male?

: Salon owner Alyona Zlotnikova claims that the slime from the snails quickens skin regeneration, eliminates wrinkles, and removes discolorations and scars.

It's also gross, but that is a small price to pay

The downside is that the treatment takes 36 days.

I thought the downside was parasitic meningitis.

I wonder how much that costs? I like facials. Interesting anyway.


If you're French, you can eat it when its done.

This kinda makes sense ... I can't recall ever seein' a snail with wrinkly skin ...

Scaly or slimy ... yeah ... but ... not pruney ...

In the immortal words of Dr. Peter Venkman, "I've been slimed!"

Pick the stupider species in the above picture. Take your time.

Hmm. snail slime vs. no snail slime facial

Here's your sign.

Better than botox??

Another downside is if the snails like your skin, they will leave some eggs there. Hey, you may never
have to go back for another facial if you have your own snails. But it take years for them, like teenagers, to move out.

What next... the " Outhouse Full Body Beauty Plunge "...?

Coming soon to a city near you.

snork @ "Escargross"

I want to step on it.

It is clear, pjd, that you've never stepped on a snail or, worse, slug barefoot.
That is one of those experiences, like waking up in a strange city (specifically Washington) that you never forget.
