Just How Well Do Bizarre Beauty Ingredients Actually Work?

Just How Well Do Bizarre Beauty Ingredients Actually Work?

There are so many odd ingredients in high-end beauty treatments these days, from bull semen to pigeon excrement to snail trail slime, but there's only a little information out there about how — or if — these things work, as the Los Angeles Times examines. A lot of these treatments seem a bit gimmicky to me, and I can't help but wonder if many of them are just a way to charge more for the same old deep conditioner. Along with the likes of caviar and gold facials, hair treatments are getting incredibly expensive these days, and I just can't see the results justifying the prices in this case. Have you ever had an experience with a treatment like this? And if so, was it worth it in the end? Tell us what you think, and take my beauty ick factor quiz to see what you know about all-things creepy when it comes to cosmetics.
