Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett both had 'penis facials' to make them look younger

The treatment uses a special serum taken from the removed foreskin of Korean newborns.

ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER mad and unobtainable beauty tip from the celebs of Hollywood.

While it’s not quite Gwyenth Paltrow steam cleaning her vagina, it is pretty out there. It turns out that Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock  while filming the new Ocean’s Eight film last year received ‘penis facials’ and no I don’t mean it in that way.

The treatment which costs $650 (!!!!) is performed by facialist-to-the-stars Georgia Louise in New York. The woman has a two year waiting list and has a lot of celebrity clients including Jennifer Aniston, Emma Stone and Katy Perry.

So what exactly is the famous ‘penis-facial’? Well it’s just as weird as it sounds to be quite honest with you.

It’s actually called the Hollywood EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) and apparently it was created specifically for Sandra Bullock. It’s a serum which is extracted from cells which are taken from the freshly removed foreskin of newborn babies in Korea.

No I’m actually serious.

The thinking behind the treatment is that when we’re young, our cells divide much faster than when we’re old. Slower dividing cells equals wrinkles so by introducing the special serum it helps build collagen and elastin in your skin and makes you look younger. Apart from the fact that you’ve got baby foreskin on your face. Whether it actually works is also up for debate.

The description of it from Cate Blanchett doesn’t make it sound any more appealing as in an interview with Vogue Australia she said the facial ‘smelled a bit like sperm’. Lovely.

I think I’ll pass on this one lads.
