Throughout the years, weíve seen some pretty genius inventions from Japan, but every once in a while they come up with something so strange, so bizarre, you canít help but ask yourself ďwhat were they thinking?Ē The new Face Slimmer anti-aging mouthpiece is one of those thingsÖ
The so-called face Slimmer was launched in Japan, late last year, by a well-known cosmetic company called Glim. Itís a weird-looking rubbery thing that looks a lot like the mouth of a blow-up doll, and it supposedly solves your sagging face problem while giving you that coveted duck-face look. You know, the one every ďcoolĒ teenager poses with in their Facebook photos. Now, unlike most other Japanese inventions, the Face Slimmer isnít high-tech. In fact itís as low tech as they come, all you have to do is put it in your mouth and start exercising your face muscles. Think of it as a squeeze punch for your mouthÖ
When photos of the Face Slimmer first appeared on the Internet, some Japanese media outlets took it as a gag, but when it started being listed on online stores like Japan Trend Shop, everyone stopped laughing. This thing isnít cheap either, it costs a whopping $83. No thanks, I think Iíll cut off the mouth off my blow-up doll instead. Anyway, if youíre curious about how itís used, Glim has released some photos with the Face Slimmer in action, along with some instructions, like trying to repeat out loud the Japanese vowel sounds Ė ďa i u e oĒ
『あ い う え お』 for at least three minutes a day, everyday for the rest of oneís life. It will make the wrinkles around your eyes go away, and improve the look of your faceÖ
Looking at all these ridiculous photos, so many mean and vulgar comments come to mind, but I think Iíll let you guys do the commenting.
