Dr. Travis Stork: It seems like everyday there are some new product or natural remedy that can make you look younger and more beautiful. But how do you know if the claims are too good to be true?
Well Drew wanted to find out just how far women would go for beauty. He came up with another outrageous scenario to find out.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Up next is the food facial. You’ve seen us do facials that use papaya, that use oatmeal but we’ve added a few over the top items.
Nikki: Let’s start off with doing the facial on Annie so you can watch.
Female: Oh, cool.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Okay, we’re ready for coconut.
Nikki: Alright. Are you hungry for some coconut?
Female: Is this edible.
Nikki: Coconuts has vitamin P in it. Vitamin P is going to immediately start activating the skin cells.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Did she just say vitamin P? There is no vitamin P.
Female: It activates the coconut, the moisturizer?
Nikki: This is a especial moisturizer.
Nikki: Yeah. It’s not just any moisturizer.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Nikki, mustard time.
Female: Yellow mustard.
Dr. Drew Ordon: That’s going to be her face getting the mustard in one second.
Nikki: You haven’t heard of this? It’s like a light peel.
Dr. Drew Ordon: The sardines are next.
Nikki: Do you smell that? This is the smell of beauty.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Nikki, where are you coming up with this stuff?
Female: Yeah, I don’t know if this is going to be quite — for me.
Dr. Drew Ordon: That’s it. That’s it.
Nikki: I'm going to put this near the nose.
This is my favorite discovery. All of the models in Paris every time they put anything on their face, it’s always dairy based.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Put it on the nose and top it off with the cherry.
Nikki: Put this on.
Are you ready for your facial?
Female: Oh, I don’t know.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Oh my God. She is agreeing to put this hodge-podge of stuff on her face?
Dr. Lisa Masterson: Oh, no I can't believe it.
Dr. Jim Sears: Wow.
Dr. Travis Stork: So we actually have Kirsten here who’s on that tape. And what on the world do you think when the sardines and the onion rings come out, are you thinking that you need to get out of here?
Kirsten: I was thinking I’d let her go in little ways because she seems so convincing like she kept throwing all this stuff like enzymes and oils and—
Dr. Travis Stork: Vitamin P.]
Male: The best vitamin of all.
Kirsten: That would have tipped me off actually. But she also kept saying scientific research but not backing it up beyond that so I was almost suspicious but also—
Female: Evident to be so critical right now okay?
Kirsten: Yeah. And it seems so good to be true but also I was like, “You know what? It’s a free facial so I might as well just slit it.” I’ve tried some with myself and might as well you know—
Dr. Travis Stork: This is not good for skin, on your face or eating it.
Dr. Lisa Masterson: Yeah.
Dr. Drew Ordon: So for all the gals that came in that we did our little experiment, we had a little fun with them. But for being such good sports, we’ve sent them for the real deal, a real facial at my spa in Beverly Hills.
So Kirsten, what is the difference between doing it the wrong way and the right way? Can you tell us?
Kirsten: Well, before I went in for the facial at your spa, I actually decided to do my research because I realized after this experience, I had to be my own advocate. And you know, I Google everything online and looked up the estheticians name and background. So I needed that going in and it was a safe experience.
Dr. Jim Sears: Well Annie, Nikki and Kirsten, thank you all three of you for helping us out.
