Stay on target Zuckerberg makes top 3 of Esquire’s Style Hall of Shame Is there nothing the Hollywood elite won’t rub on their bodies in the name of vanity?In an interview with Vogue Australia, actor Cate Blanchett revealed she and Ocean’s 8 costar Sandra Bullock received a “penis facial” in New York.To be clear, there is nothing sexual about the treatment. In fact, I’d argue that it derives from a place of chastity: circumcision.Following a cleanse, chemical peel, micro-needling, and electrifying mask, facialist Georgia Louise applies a “secret box” of EGF (epidermal growth factor) serum—derived from “the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast taken from Korean newborn baby foreskin.”The FDA-approved stem cells and peptides are penetrated deep into the skin to help generate collagen and elastin. Apparently.“[We] saw this facialist in New York … and she gives us what we call the penis facial,” Blanchett told Vogue, as reported by Refinery29. “It’s something—I don’t know what it is, or whether it’s just cause it smells a bit like sperm—there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy [Bullock] refers to it as the penis facial.”Once the Internet blew up over the bizarre beauty treatment, Vogue Australia discreetly removed the quote from its story (without so much as an editor’s note). Thankfully, other eagle-eyed media outlets were quick to swoop in and publish it anyway.“It started last year when Sandra Bullock was filming in NYC and came to see me for a deep cleansing and long-lasting facial glow,” Louise told People. “I wanted to give her something that would transform her skin without the need to undergo lasers, so I loaded up her bespoke facial with something that would give her long-lasting results.”A certified success, the Hollywood EGF Facial was born.“Celebrity facialist Georgia Louise has a secret facial—and Cate Blanchett just leaked it,” the spa website said.The firm, which boasts clients like Emma Stone, Alexander Wang, and Katy Perry, tried to make light of the situation. But actually comes off a bit, well, miffed.“The facial Cate Blanchett is referring to is Georgia Louise’s ‘Hollywood EGF Facial,’ which until now has—somewhat understandably—been an ‘under the radar’ treatment you had to be in the know and on Georgia’s A-list to get,” it said.It seems Korean babies’ foreskin contains some potent organisms used to brighten, tighten, and heal skin. Understandably, anti-circumcision activists are not lining up at the door for their turn at the upper-crust service. But neither are skincare experts.According to Refinery29, while many acknowledge the immediate benefits of EGF, they say there’s not enough research yet on its long-term safety.
