We were able to try a unique experience in France with a beautician: snails with generous mucus on the face. The experience is unusual but not unpleasant (well, not too unpleasant). Lots of big slobbery kisses run from your forehead to your chin. After a few minutes, the animal is removed, but this does not take into account the exposure time for «the active ingredients to take effect». About 10 more minutes. Then it’s time to clean up. Result: the skin is softer and smoother to the touch… But next time we will prefer the formula prepared in a tube!
