Lisa Hix of the always entertaining Collectors Weekly takes a trip down the smooth and flawless road of Bizarre Beauty Products, 1889 to Now. ("For comfort." "Warning lights.")
beauty, terror, hats, from the archives, collectors weekly
I was more appalled by the modern devices than by any of the earlier ones. How do these things (still) exist?!
@SarahP The Facial Flex is the creepiest thing EVER.
I'm pretty sure that like 90% of sci-fi movie cityscapes are just close-up panning through these, er, devices. That woman is wearing the set of Brazil on her head.
Maybe (haha, definitely) because I am easily duped by spurious claims, but I would totally buy a breathing balloon to increase my lung capacity. And if it makes my boobs more glorious too, so be it!
@sudden but inevitable betrayal
I love the passive-aggressiveness of that ad! "Breathing Balloon will develop your form if that's what you want." Stop judging me Breathing Balloon! Because I do. I do want.
Aaaaahhhhh! Epilady! I got one of those as a gift from my MOM, who apparently was really pissed off at me that Christmas, because OUCH!
@MoonBat I actually have (and use) the modern version or the Epilady. It hurt like hell the first time but now it's not so bad, I mostly only use it because I'm super prone to razor burn no matter what I do.
Why is she smiling? Is it the DOUBLE POLE SWITCH?
Your freckles ruin your appearance?! NOOOO do not get rid of your freckles, seriously, they are adorable/beautiful/sexy.
@jen325 I knew I liked you for a reason. Freckles unite!
Weren't the "face" vibrators actually for more naughty places but couldn't be advertised as that? That's what I have heard.
@baked bean I mean, that is what I assumed from the moment I saw Vanessa Hudgens hawking one on TV.
Am I the only one for whom the "No-No" only burns off half the hair? I mean, shorter, finer facial (mustache and sideburn) hair is better than longer mustache hair, anytime, I suppose, but in no way does it actually "burn the hair to the root" as purported. Not even close. Though I have managed to burn my chin trying to get those nasty chin hairs that come with the 40's gone, as well as my upper lip a couple of times, without actually burning the hair all the way off...
