Snail-slime face cream is one thing, but would you let live snails crawl around your face in the hopes of achieving a softer, smoother and more youthful-looking appearance?

A new facial treatment offered in a Tokyo spa involves snails maneuvering all over one's skin. The slimy mucus left behind the shelled creatures supposedly provides beneficial properties to the skin, easing inflammation and providing moisture.

The $250 “celebrity escargot course” offered by Tokyo's Clinical Salon also involves a facial massage and use of an electrical pulse machine.

Eek!  This really creeps me out!  What's the craziest thing you've ever tried in the name of beauty?

Ewww!  No way would I give that a try!  I honestly don't know that I've tried many weird things.  I did give self-waxing a try.  NEVER AGAIN!  That was the most painful experience of my life. LOL
