“The foul (no pun intended) puffy eye cream is actually known as The Geisha Facial, a treatment created by celebrity facialist Shizuka Bernstein of New York City’s Shizuka spa…Apparently, Victoria Beckham and Tom Cruise are huge fans of this bizarre beauty treatment that costs $180 a session. And if their damn-near-flawless complexions are proof that this stuff works, then we’re down with the bird poo, too.” ~ Dana Oliver for The Huffington Post
“As someone who has actually tried this treatment (don’t judge, it was Spa Week and my roommate gave it to me!), I can say that, no your face doesn’t end up smelling like poop and yes you walk out with noticeably softer and brighter skin.” ~ Nikki Ogunnaike for Glamour.com
A Brazilian cable network featured Shizuka Bernstein on their internationally syndicated show, Domingo Espetacular. The piece, ”Conheça o tratamento com cocô de pássaros feito por Tom Cruise para eliminar rugas”, translated from Portuguese reads: “Learn about the bird poop treatment used by Tom Cruise to eliminate wrinkles”.
Shizuka talks about the Geisha Facial® and gives the host, a Tom Cruise look-alike, a mini facial!
A recent article in the The Huffington Post names Tom Cruise a new fan of our Geisha “bird poop” facial.
“Celebrities keep some weird beauty secrets… but one of the oddest tricks we’ve heard of is the Geisha Facial® — which is made from actual bird poop. Made popular by Victoria Beckham, the bird poop facial now has a new fan – Tom Cruise.”
In her new movie Mirror Mirror, based on Brothers Grimm’s “Snow White” fairy tale, actress Julia Roberts plays the all- organic-beauty-regimen-obsessed evil Queen. To keep herself young and “the fairest of them all” the Queen partakes of nature’s finest: snails, scorpion and bee stings (lip plumper), slimy worm moisturizer, and bird poop facials!
While we’ve never used worms, snails (or any other insects!) as part of a beauty regimen, we do applaud the use of bird poop for softer brighter skin!
SHIZUKA NY is the creator of the ever-popular Geisha “bird poop” Facial. This facial uses traditional and natural Japanese ingredients, including uguisu no fun (powdered nightingale droppings), to soften, brighten and nourish the facial complexion. Uguisu no fun is perfectly safe as it’s sanitized through exposure to ultraviolet light before being milled to a fine powder.
