These Are the Craziest Beauty Treatments We've Ever Tried



One of the unspoken job requirements of a beauty editor is to house a healthy sense of curiosity. After all, our tough gig involves seeking out some of the coolest products and experiences around in the name of better skin, hair, and health—and all the better if they're off the beaten path. To that end, we all have some pretty interesting tales to tell. And naturally, our favorites are the ones that actually delivered amazing results.

Take it from the Victoria's Secret models who all prepped their skin for the big show with the same 24k gold-leaf sheet mask—sometimes you have to be willing to experiment to find beauty nirvana. (Bonus points if you also get a killer picture for the 'gram.) Below, read our own accounts of the wildest things we've done in the name of beauty, from snail slime facials to muscle-electrocution.
