Three of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Guidice, Dina Manzo, and Amber Marchese, get facials at a spa during Season 6. While a creamy lotion is being brushed onto their faces, Manzo senses a “different” smell; Guidice thinks she smells a hint of peanut butter. The owner of the Japanese spa explains that what they smell is bird poop. Nightingale feces, to be exact.
The “Geisha Facial” (uguisu no fun) has been used since in Japan since ancient times. The facial is said to “whiten the skin and balance skin tone, as well as treat skin affected by hyperpigmentation such as in the case of acne or sun damage” – the latter of which Guidice suffers. Uguisu no fun is becoming more popular in Western culture. Celebrity couple Victoria and David Beckham is reported to use it.
