The “Geisha Facial” (apparently calling it “Bird Shit Facial” doesn’t go over well with upscale spa clientele) is actually an ancient Japanese beauty secret, used by Geishas since the 18th Century. Somehow someone discovered that the feces of the Nightingale was one of the few things that could efficiently wash off the thick white make-up traditionally worn. While our white base wearing days may be over, nightingale poop is again being put to good use to soften, skin tone and even dislodge stubborn blackheads. It’s the natural enzymes and amino acid Guanine (a shimmery light refracting compound also found in fish scales and bat feces), known to brighten and cleanse, that does the trick!
