My husband is my unlimited source of inspiration, mostly because of his lame jokes. Like really lame
‘Finished bad’ instead of ‘Finished good’ when we discussed one of the vendor’s at work that keeps causing trouble all the time. And yes, there were people (other than Sing himself) laughing from that.
Adding this to the fact that I love to look up new weird Asian skin care trends – we got today’s post!
This Easter I received from my parents ‘The little book of skin care’ by Charlotte Cho (Polish cover is much cuter in my opinion, btw!) – you can see it in our latest random Easter video (click here or see below!)
I’m in love with Korean skin care products, my sister in law is crazy about them too. I’m so excited I finally got my hands on this book.
Of course, I’m not blindly in love – I just judge by what works for me and what doesn’t. That’s why I was disappointed with Tony Moly ‘Panda’s dream’ series, but since I’m a sucker for anything ‘kawaii’ I would buy it again just for the package.
But as they say ‘everything weird comes from Asia’. Like Momzilla for example. To be fair Poland itself had few awful beauty trends that make me glad I was too young to be part of it.
The most memorable trend was extremely tanned skin with very fake blond hair. Really close to Japanese ganguro. And of course every girl had to have white high boots. Just think of discount version of Peggy Bundy. I heard they are becoming more and more trendy again… Run for your lives!
Since it’s long weekend here in Ireland, I decided to show Sing the most popular beauty trends from Asia and write down his comments – not only as a man, but an Asian man, you know, in case I missed something due to ‘cultural differences’ ;-)!
The Bagel Head
Bagel-shaped implant on your forehead. I don’t know if it was really that popular among body modifications or is just known as the best example of ‘weird Asian beauty trends’.
Sing: If you had a bagel like that on your forehead I would just stick my thumb inside and play with it all day. Although I’m not a fan of body modifying.
The face slimmer…
And other weird looking beauty tools.
Sing: I honestly think every good boyfriend and husband should buy this product for his lady! You girls spend so much money for all those creams to slim your face down. Look how simple is that! I actually give two thumbs up for this.
Don’t try to make surprise trip to Beijing happen, it’s not going to happen. If you know what I mean. I married a perv.
Bird poop facial
Name says it all. Fancy salons combine the powdered bird poop with rice bran and ultraviolet light to sanitize the skin.
Sing: Do you think we could pull off the same thing with Biscuit? Cat poop facial. Basically her litterbox is a goldmine.
I will never understand women.
Eye bags that are supposed to make you look young and cute.
Sing: Natural eye bags are OK, it’s just how someone was made. But why would someone make themselves look like Kung Fu Panda? It’s not that I cannot see that white powder thingy from far away.
That white powder thingy is called ‘eye shadow’ honey. I love the choice of your vocabulary.
The imperfect teeth or ‘double tooth’ for some reason is considered cute in Japan.
Sing: Why would you do that to yourself? People pay so much money to have straight teeth and you make them look broken? It’s not cute to me at all. Imperfect teeth are suppose to give a young look since it’s kids who usually have that kind of teeth… why not take it any further and just have a set of fake teeth like old people. Imagine changing your look – cute and young like a baby in the morning, and old and MILFy at night when you take them off and tell your guy ‘Hefff bejff’.
And being obsessed about staying pale.
Sing: Are you going to rob a bank or go to the beach? Whoever thought about this was just evil. If you don’t want to get tanned just stay in the shadow.
Said the guy whose grandma asked him after his first year in Australia if he spent his summer on a farm.
I’m really curious what Sing would say if he had seen some Western trends like eye jewelry, vampire facials or armpit hair dye. Because let’s face it – in every culture there will be that weird person others will want to follow.
Have you heard about any other weird trends? What do you think about them? Let us know! We cannot wait to read your opinion!
