Isn’t there a James Bond movie like this?
Ladies, how often have you said to yourselves, “Boy would I love to look more like a figure in an 18th century Russian religious icon!” Now, thanks to a new way of showing that you have way too much money, you can do just that.
At the Beautyworld trade show this week in Japan, they demonstrated 24-carat gold facial treatments. But some consumer warnings are in order:
- Gold melts easily, but pouring it on your face in a molten state probably isn’t smart.
- If three bears start following you from the spa, well, that’s a long story.
- When wearing your gold face, allow a little extra time to get through airport security.
