All cultures have them: strange beauty products that make you go huh and hmm?

And accept that all of us (the American us), have enabled a trio of humble, non-publicity seeking reality show starring sisters whose last name rhymes with ‘Schmardashian,’ to build a $65 million lifestyle brand.
Thinking about that might make some of the strange (and effective) Asian beauty products I’ve encountered on my travels, appear downright normal by comparison. Click through to judge for yourself:
