All The Cool Kids Are Doing It

Posted on July 19th, 2010 by Jean

If Crunchy Betty jumped off a bridge, would you jump too?
 
No, but when Crunchy Betty puts food on her face, you want to follow suit!
 
The genius behind Crunchy Betty is brunette beauty, Leslie. Leslie woos us with succulent photos, fascinating facts, and the benefits of bypassing our mouths and smearing food directly onto our skin.
 
Now before you peel that banana and do a face plant, I recommend you check out her site for honest to goodness recipes.
 
The glistening goo on my face is equal parts honey and almond oil with a droplet of Vitamin E oil. After rinsing, I glowed like a nubile virgin. My goopy face is now on display at the Gallery of Crunchy Betties.
 
Get your cameras ready and head to your kitchen or pantry.
 
β€’ What food will you put on your face?
β€’ Is that your head next to mine in the gallery?

    Oh, mayo in the hair. I think I tried that once too, Luisa. Lemon in the hair was nice in the summertime.
    Thank you! I’ll try to remember which food is for my face and which to eat.

    LOL, Gigi! Given a chocolate covered strawberry, I’d sooner eat it than wear it. πŸ˜€

  9. I read that fresh squeezed lemon juice is great for pores. Yogurt is also great as a face mask. I’ve yet to try both! I’m going to check out Crunchy Betty’s site! lol @ Crunchy Betty πŸ˜‰

    I was JUST at Crunchy Betty’s, and she mentioned lemons and yogurt tonight! You already know more than me. πŸ™‚

    I know I just left there and was reading that too! I’ve done research on it before. I used to be a beauty consultant…but not very long. I sold BeautiControl. lol… But lately I’ve had pore problems so I was doing some reasearch and came across an article on lemons and how they shrink pores.

  10. My friend Brooke does these recipes too and they are really cool. I don’t know if I can do it though. Something about it freaks me out. I guess I’m afraid of doing something to cause a monster zit reaction. LOL! (be my luck!)

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    Angelia – A monster zit reaction would be bad! I did dab on a little bit of proactive before bed. LOL!

  11. You look great! I would totally put whipped cream on my face.

  12. Please take a pic. when you do, Kristin!

  13. I’m jealous. You look serene in your food face photo. I look like I am about to be locked in in an asylum!

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    You can’t fool me! You look FABULOUS! πŸ™‚

  14. If my skin could look like yours I’d put anything on my face!

    Crunchy Betty’s an interesting site!

    Fun video of you in your sidebar!

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    LOL, S.Le! Well, next time you have a lil’ extra honey and oil, give this recipe a try.
    Thank you for the compliments!

    [Reply]

  15. OMG, how did you manage this? I can’t even stand the texture of crumbs on my face (around my mouth), so not sure I could do honey. πŸ™‚ I’m always up for beauty tips though. Thanks for this! We’ll see if I can muster the courage. LOL. ~Sarah (www.misscapatosta.com)

    Jean Has Been Shopping Reply:

    LOL, Sarah! It really was a unique feeling, like my face was consistently wet. Then, after rinsing, it just kept GLOWING. Crunchy Betty has some great ideas. When I look at fruit now, I wonder whether to wear it or eat it.
