Latest Shizuka’s Geisha (Bird Poop) Facials Mentions from Around the Web

Journalist and media outlets have variously described the Geisha Facial as a craze, hyped, really weird, and definitely bizarre while the young, rich and beautiful have raved about it, touting its all natural properties (Tom Cruse) and talking about how much they love it (Posh Spice & David Beckham) — and all this has been in the last 7 years, going back to when ShizukaNY introduced the Geisha Facial to New Yorkers back in 2008.

Today, 7 years later, the Geisha Facial is still attracting positive attention and testimonials — check out these recent mentions from around the web:

Simon Hill, the assistant editor for The Knot, a one-stop online wedding planning site, had this to say about her unique experience with the infamous ‘bird poop’ facial:

As far as beauty treatments go, putting bird poop on your face is as pretty strange as it gets, but it’s really not as bizarre as you might think . . . afterwards my face felt clean and had a nice glow to it . . . what really stood out to me was how gentle the facial was. All of the products used are all-natural which is great if you have sensitive skin or prefer to avoid chemicals.

The OMGSkinCare.com site adds a new superlative to the list of adjectives journalists and bloggers have used to describe the Geisha Facial – insane:

Perhaps the best known aspect of the geisha is her white pancake makeup, which was once lead-based and ravaged the skin. To restore their appearance, the geisha used a cream made from the droppings of nightingales, which contained revitalizing enzymes . . . customers have reported a “glow” on their face after the treatment.

Finally, both TreatNowBlog.com and Metro.us, drawing on a list of previously used adjectives – weird and bizarre respectively – also brought to the attention of their audiences the benefits of the Geisha Facial:

The story goes that in the past Japanese Geisha’s used a cream derived of Nightingale dropping to revitalise their skin after a day wearing harmful lead based make-up. The dropping are said to contain beneficial enzymes that help heal and brighten the skin. Today, the Shizuka Day Spa in New York [has] brought this ancient treatment into the 21st century in the form of a facial.

The Mail Online’s Claudia Connell Finds That The Geisha Facial Beats Botox

The anti-aging benefits of The Geisha Facial® have been garnering acclaim from near and far since its inception January 1st, 2008 when Shizuka Bernstein introduced it to the beauty world. Benefits of this controversial treatment include: reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, firmer skin, brighter and more even complexion. And as our most recent reviewer states in The Daily Mail that the Geisha Facial would even “beat botox”:

I notice a definite improvement in my dark circles and the sun damage marks on my forehead. I also have bad scarring on my chest following an unfortunate  incident with hot oil and a chip pan some years ago and the marks there are also significantly reduced.

Two days later, I meet a friend for her birthday lunch and she tells me I look glowing before miming a needle going into my forehead to suggest I’ve had Botox. But I haven’t actually had any for more than a year.

Since I reckon Botox takes around five years off my face and that my friend thinks the nightingale droppings have done the same, that’s a result I am more than pleased with.”

If botox and The Geisha Facial both take 5 years off the face, in a show down, here’s 5 reasons The Geisha Facial would beat Botox:

5 reasons why The Geisha Facial® Beats Botox

1. All-natural Alternative

The Geisha facial involves no needles, just bird poop. The amino acid present in the guanine enzyme works to brighten skin, lightening dark circles and hyperpigmentation. It also tightens skin and is what gives it that signature Geisha Facial *glow* that lasts for days.

2. Uplifting Benefits of a Facial

Feeling refreshed will make you look it too. Facials aren’t just about cleansing, they also help boost immunity and relieve stress. The Geisha Facial is designed to pamper you and melt away stress. Finding the time to relax may be challenging for most, but it can actually trim years off your face.  Think about the last time you felt refreshed, didn’t you also look it? Our skilled technicians perform this treatment under the highest standards to make you feel like you are on cloud 9.

3. Lower Price tag

The Geisha Facial is priced at $180 per treatment. Every treatment builds upon the other to improve skin elasticity and even out complexion. If you receive a facial once a month, the price tag would still be less than a standard botox injection.

4. Natural Route

The original Geisha Facial incorporates the Shizuka new york Skincare System to cleanse, brighten, and tone the face. These products are made of all natural ingredients sourced directly from Japan such as sake, fermented soybeans, mushrooms, and green tea. They are specially designed to bring you a taste of Japan in a bottle. Escape to Mount Fuji without leaving the city!

5. Celebrity Status

Aside from it being a good conversation piece, sleep better knowing you’ve overcome your fear of strange things and that bizarre beauty has got nothing on you now. And hey you now run with the likes of celebrities like Tom Cruise and Victoria Beckham.

 Cruise is “proud” of himself for taking the natural route. Tom [Cruise] doesn’t go in for Botox or surgery .. the [Geisha Facial] results have been fantastic.” ~ Now Magazine

Rachael Bletchly’s Bird Brained Geisha Facial Review In The Daily Mirror

Rachael Bletchly's Bird Brained Geisha Facial Review In The Daily Mirror

A writer for the The Daily Mirror, a UK publication, recently wrote a review about a facial performed by a spa in London, England that’s strikingly similar to Shizuka new york’s Geisha Facial® .

While other spas around the world may imitate The Geisha Facial®, the original was born right here in New York City by Shizuka Bernstein and her husband, the dermatologist, Dr. Robert M. Bernstein. We still think it’s worth responding to her review. Everyone’s entitled to an opinion, right?!

While some may believe the facial is effective but not worth the price point, we beg to differ. The years of research Shizuka and her husband put into the treatment process ensures it’s “scientifically correct” and effective for balancing out skin tone, deepening hydration, and to ensure it’s facial-worthy, it’s a highly relaxing and calming experience.

As a master aesthetician herself, Shizuka ensures that every Geisha Facial® is performed with techniques that fit her standard of care and precision for each and every client. “I want to bring Japanese beauty secrets to all my clients so that their skin may benefit from all-natural Japanese ingredients without having to  leave the city. I’m not happy until my clients are satisfied with the results”, says Shizuka.

Every Geisha Facial® incorporates all-natural ingredients sourced directly from Japan like green tea, sake, and Mount Fuji water. With the help of Shizuka new york’s highly trained facialists, you’ll be transported to Japan and back in little under an hour!

The Geisha Facial® mentioned in The Times of India

Times of India Logo edited

The Times of India included Shizuka new york Day Spa’s The Geisha Facial® in its list of bizarre facials that deliver ‘diva-approved’ results!

Celebrity fans of the facial are Tom Cruise and Victoria and David Beckham.

 

Here’s what The Times of India had to say:

 

Glow with bird poop
If there is something other, that Tom Cruise is known to advocate for after Scientology, it’s the bird poop facial. Not one for the botox and surgeries, rubbing a concoction of nightingale poop, rice bran and water gives his face the shine that he is looking for. The nightingale poop facial, also known as the Geisha facial as it originates from Japan, is known to exfoliate the dirt from the skin and leave it shining and squeaky clean. Guess who introduced him to the ways of the nightingale? Good friend David Beckham. He and his wife, Posh are known to be high on the treatment too.

Celebrated Anti-Aging Facial in New York City: The Geisha Facial®

The Business Standard

 

India’s newspaper, The Business Standard, reports on the efficacy of Anti-Aging Facials and touts Shizuka new york’s The Geisha Facial® in their article titled: Anti-Aging Facials can Save you from Losing that Youthful Appearance.

“Manhattan’s Shizuka New York Day Spa specializes in the Nightingale facial in which bird droppings, which removes dead cells, are slathered onto a client’s face to give a youthful appearance.”

 

With a wide range of facials and treatments available to choose from, Shizuka Bernstein advises on the best time to receive an anti-aging facial:

“Basically, anti-aging facials are unnecessary before the age of 25. These treatments are most effective once the skin begins to age, which is generally in someone’s 30’s (depending on their lifestyle, genetics, etc.). With that said, it’s never too late to begin an anti-aging regimen.”

Shizuka’s BeautyZen Corner: Geisha Beauty Secrets

Shizuka's BeautyZen Corner

 

For centuries, geishas’ beauty has been likened to their mysteriously flawless skin.  Geisha beauty secrets reveal that simple ingredients native to Japan like rice bran, camellia oil, and green tea work together to protect, nourish, and brighten skin. These and other ingredients create the cornerstone of time-honored geisha beauty.

Geisha Beauty Secrets

Many describe geisha’s skin as mochi-hada or baby skin because it resembles skin so soft and flawless like a baby’s. The secret to their flawless skin attributes back to their skincare routine that’s been passed down for centuries.

At one time, the heavy makeup worn by geishas contained harsh chemicals like lead and zinc which led to severe skin problems. Eventually, they discovered nightingale droppings as a natural way to not only remove the makeup but to retexturize and strengthen the bonds of the skin at a cellular level. 

 

Traditional Skincare: Simple Ingredients

After Shizuka learned that geishas used simple ingredients easily sourced throughout Japan to care for their skin, she carefully studied the effects of these ingredients along with her husband, the dermatologist, Dr. Robert Bernstein. From their findings, Shizuka created The Geisha Facial® , which incorporates simple Japanese ingredients like rice bran, camellia oil, green tea, and  uguisi no fun or nightingale droppings.

 

Deep Cleansing Facial

Since ancient times the enzymes from nightingale droppings proved to deeply cleanse and lift away harsh chemicals from the skin leaving it renewed and dewy each time. (Think of it like an enzyme peel). By mixing the droppings proportionally with powdery rice bran, Shizuka created a fine enzyme exfoliate that’s been lauded the world over.

How to Prep Your Skin for a Facial

Whether you’re a facial veteran or are about to get your first facial ever—knowing how to prepare your skin for your treatment will help extend the life of the facial keeping your face aglow longer.

Here are a few tips to help you prepare for a facial:

–          Know your skin. While our skilled estheticians will let you know the best treatment upon examining your skin, it’s best to already know which areas you’d like to target. For example:  Tone down oily skin, target acne prone areas, focus on lifting, deep cleansing with pore extraction, etc.. Communicate this to your esthetician and your treatment will be specially catered to your needs.

–          No scrubbing. Skip harsh cleansers or facial exfoliants before your treatment. Your facial will consist of exfoliation and most likely pore extraction as well, so leave the dirty work to a trained professional!

–          Save new products for later. Just clean your face following your usual cleansing routine. It’s best not to experiment with new products right before a facial so that your skin can be examined in its “usual” state. Using new products may have adverse reactions on your skin (i.e. over drying, inflammation, etc.), so it’s best to hold off until after your treatment.

–          To steam or not to steam. This is a personal preference that doesn’t positively or negatively affect your treatment. Some like to use a sauna before a facial to relax and open up pores. While this is an option, it’s not necessary since your face will be steamed and cleaned for an hour or more anyway.

–        Remove makeup. While estheticians will remove makeup for you before beginning your facial, you can arrive to the spa 5-10 minutes earlier and remove it yourself to save time. Or just arrive without makeup altogether.

It’s never too early to start getting regular facials for optimum skin health! Shizuka began getting facial treatments in her 20’s and says “facials have helped keep my skin clear and firm throughout the years”.
