If you are looking for novelty-WTF-skincare that might provide minutes of entertainment (and possibly even care for your skin), then check out Aqua Sherbet Ice Toner and First Snow Pack by Etude House.
Aqua Sherbet Ice Toner. From afar, this deceptive product looks like a standard addition to your average bathroom cabinet. Investigate a little further a.k.a. sales girl bombardment upon store entry, and you will find the MAGICAL POWERS of Etude House!! Yup, it’s actual magic. The proof is in the proverbial pudding -the oohs and aahs of customers lured by customer service demonstration.
Let me give you a brief description:1) shake can, 2) spray product (think slimy hair-mouse) into hand, preferably in the shape of a Mr. Whippy ice-cream, 3) wait 2 seconds as it solidifies then … voila!! You now have a solid-form applicator that seeps toner when squeezed …
Is it magic? You can bet your bottom dollar it is. Will I use it on my face? Not a chance.
First Snow Pack – avail in Aloe Vera and Potato. Also very deceiving in appearance. At a brief glance, one would assume this was some type of delicious, frozen confectionary (if you’ve ever scoured the ice-cream freezers at your local FamilyMart, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about). On closer inspection, one will discover a variety of face masks designed to improve your skin in a variety of different ways. Personally, the only improvement I foresee is temporary cooling of my face on a hot day (if I kept it in the fridge next to my ice cream). This might drive me to the closest stockist on a steamy summer day save for one foreseeable disappointment: swallowing a giant mouthful of left over face mask next time I’m searching my freezer for a refreshing ice-cream.
Thoughts in a nutshell: big thumbs up to the creators of such novelty items. You’ve definitely caught my attention. Pity these creative brains were only used for developing packaging instead of higher quality products. Would anyone in their right mind put chemicals that turn foam into a sponge onto their face?!
