Do you look tired? Do you feel like your skin doesn't bounce back like it used to? Have you tried every cream in the book -- the $2 one, the $20 one, the $200 one! -- and nothing seems to work? Too young for an actual face lift? Enter the Facelift Bungee! The contraption that takes years off your face in seconds! For just $25! And with no downtime at all!
All you have to do is make two braids on the sides of your head, puuulll them back really tight, secure them with a stretchy cord, and voila! You'll think you're staring into the pages of a glossy spread in Vogue, not your dusty old mirror.
So, there's this thing on the market now -- the Facelift Bungee -- and it's the latest product that supposedly gives you a facelift in minutes, with the only side effect being some broken pieces of hair at your temples. And, it -- well, just watch the video and see what you think.
Is this genius? Or idiotic? I'm being serious, I honestly can't tell. I personally didn't notice any sort of dramatic change in any of these women, but everyone was acting like this was the most amazing thing they'd ever laid their eyes on.
I'm totally not above ridiculous contraptions, potions, rituals, whatever in the name of beauty -- I've permed my eyelashes before (yes, it's insane, but holy s**t, does it do a world of difference on your eyes!) -- but I'm just not getting the Facelift Bungee. I mean, I understand the concept of it, but it really does just seem more silly than "results-oriented." I feel like I'm alone here, though; like I'm the only person not seeing the "picture" in one of those weird swirly drawings that you hold up close to your face. I mean, this thing was on Good Morning America for chrissake!
So, no. I will not being purchasing the Facelift Bungee. I will not be braiding my hair at the sides and pulling it back tightly to create the illusion of smoother skin. But I very well may perm my eyelashes again. Because even though it's ridiculous, it works.
Did you see a change in these women?
