Just what are they selling?

Occasionally, my sister sends me sample sized packages of skin care or cosmetics that get sent to her. (she is loyal to her own brands, but sales people are always looking to seduce). This afternoon, I opened a package and read:

Active principles include white agaric mushroom, halophile microalgea and our swiss muscle relaxing peptide based on the venom of the temple viper.

My only question is, do I put this stuff on my skin, or feed it to an enemy?

Yuck! Are you sure that it is not flying ointment? LOL.

Just goes to show you that some people want to die and leave a beautiful corpse.

I am going for the later here. If anyone points out that there is a wrinkle present then you give them a quick dose of this. It is a brilliant form of combating the preception of aging being bad :) Darwinism in action and I applaud their efforts!

Seriously, that is at least as scary as the women flocking to have the muscles in their face immobilized with Botox. Wow! No thanks.

It would appear that the good Frater was signed in when I posted that comment :) Ooops. Occupational hazard. I can assure you that the good Frater is completely confused on world of womens aging products :)

Y'know, I was kind of amused that only men had responded to a post on face cream...

As for using it as flying ointment, Morgan, I think that comes under the heading of "off label use." It is missing the belladonna, though. I don't believe that that has been part of womens beauty treatments since the 19th century...
