The Ultimate Victoria Beckham Craze: Beauty Cream from Bird Poop

A facial mask made of excrement, the Geisha Facial® is the top beauty trend and a favorite of ex-Spice Girl Victoria Beckham


Skin smooth to the touch and radiant, like a lifting effect, according to well-informed Posh Spice, David Beckham’s acclaimed wife and mother of three children.   Victoria Beckham discovered the Geisha Facial® treatment during a trip to Japan and, after returning to the United States, tried relentlessly to find it in the beauty Mecca of New York City. The regenerating bird poop cream is the flagship of exclusive Japanese Shizuka spa, a chic Big Apple day spa.

A series of appointments booked by the beautiful Victoria, made the “Geisha Facial®” an instant success. But the ‘elixir’ of eternal youth, a technique used by ancient Geisha, is nothing but a powdered excrement from small birds, especially the nightingales. In short, the beauty secrets of millionaire Spice do not lie in the trendy, glam diamond dust or caviar, but in the all-natural bird guano.  And, contrary to what you may think, the facemask based on poop with miraculous effects on the face, has already taken flight. So much so that the ‘Victoria mania’ has become unstoppable.

Spas and perfumeries in Milan, where the singer has bought a mega loft, are clamoring to import Geisha Facial®s, especially with their healing effects on acne. From a spa in downtown Milan are aware that the product has already requested. Each application lasts sixty minutes and costs around 180 U.S. dollars…just to be a completely natural.
