You can already get a beauty cream made of snails. This treatment offered by the Ci:z Medical Group in Tokyo just removes the intermediary process:
According to a Ci:z.Labo spokesperson, the snails on your face feel a little ticklish at first, but they gradually start to stick onto your skin and after a while, they feel nice and cool on your face. Umm, okay, I think I’ll take their word for it and not try it myself in this case.
Like most beauty treatments, the escargot regimen doesn’t come cheap, with the 60 minute regular course priced at 24,150 yen (US$240) and the additional live snail experience option costing another 10,500 yen (US$100). Since the snails require careful management, the celeb escargot course is currently available only at the main Ci:z.Labo salon in Ebisu.
