Beyond The Face Bra: Bizarre Anti-Aging Devices

japan-embed
We know what you were thinking when we wrote about The Face Bra. "That's all well and good, Refinery29 Beauty, but where would I actually purchase such a marvel of modern beauty science?" Have no fear, because as the Daily Mail reports, Japan Trend Shop is here to meet all of your weird beauty needs with super-bizarre accessories meant to tighten and tone your mug.

On the docket (besides the incomporable Face Bra, of course)? Well, there's the lovely Hannibal Lecter-esque Facewaver Exercise Mask, which claims to "tighten the face and cheeks, kneading out wrinkles, lines and sag." The only requirement is that you're willing to wear this frightening contraption (and do the corresponding exercises) for five minutes a day. The plus side: The mask is pink. Because, pink makes everything more appealing, right? Don't answer that.
Also on offering is the Haruka Eye Slack, which is a heated, vibrating massager that claims to lessen eye bags. Oh, there are also micro-currents involved. Or, for a "nose lift without the hassle," try the Beauty Lift High Nose electric nose straightener. We'll let you mull that one over for a second. Or, hey, if this slimming facial massage wasn't weird enough for you, there's a creepy, clown-mouth-like device that one wears while uttering "vowel sounds over and over again." Sounds like your roommates will be thrilled.
Click over to Japan Trend Shop to browse all of the delightfully strange wares (Hello Kitty contact lenses?!), but be warned: You'll probably fall down the rabbit hole, only to emerge dazed and confused an hour later. So, maybe clear your schedule first. (Daily Mail)
Facewaver Exercise Mask, $60, available at Japan Trend Shop.
