What Were They Thinking? DIY Botox Kits Hit Ebay

Now, there are several things I'd like to DIYlip scrubs, face masks, or even nail polishing. But, considering my considerable aversion to pain, I can't imagine willingly putting any sharp objects near my face all by myself.

Regardless of your opinion of Botox, it includes the injection of poison — a process which screams "pay a licensed professional" to me. However, over in the UK, a pack containing powder, needles, and a face map was spotted on eBay by Which? magazine . . . obviously, without a prescription. The auction was removed, but that's still scary stuff.

Conserving money is one thing, but a cut-price cosmetic treatment doesn't seem to be proper penny pinching. Am I the only surprised one, or can you see why someone would want to be a beauty super saver?

I would NEVER DIY Botox, myself (I'm trying to convince myself to get it done professionally - I need it - but I'm still squesmish), but I can't say I'm surprised there is a kit out there and people willing to use it. I mean, people will go to some cut-rate non-doctor who gives a rock-bottom price, not a real professional. I've heard of people giving themselves peels at home too - without good results, needless to say!!! Faylinn - Love It's Always Sunny...

I've seen chemical skin peels sold on Ebay which I thought was kind of off too... I think anything that involves chemicals/acids/poisons, needles, and my skin, should be left to professionals (if I ever feel the need to inject something into my face).

Eww. This doesn't sound like a good DIY project at all.

Wow, this is right out of an episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I'd imagine the results of doing this in real life wouldn't differ too much from the show.

That's crazy! I can't even imagine why anyone would want to do it themselves to save money. I'd rather pay a professional.
