Victoria Beckham has been causing a bit of a stir recently by extolling the virtues of her latest discoveries in the world of skincare. Unfortunately, you need the bank balance of a celebrity in order to indulge in these treatments and, to be perfectly honest, some of them sound a little unusual to say the least.
So, if you have over three hundred pounds to spend on a facial, you could try out the now-famous treatment that uses the amniotic stem cells harvested from New Zealand sheep placentas… or how about the face creams made from the excrement of a rare Japanese nightingale or bee venom?
Apparently, the effects of the placenta facial can last for up to five days, which makes it a rather expensive route to take in the search for a happier and healthier complexion.
On the other hand, Dermalogica skincare products do not offer bizarre ingredients; they tend to rely on botanical extracts and advanced ingredients that have been proven to work on the skin. Working on the principal that a good skincare regimen can help skin to look and feel its best, these products are designed to take care of your skin on a daily basis.
I for one will not be abandoning the products that work for me to try out sheep placentas and bird faeces any time soon…
