If you’re in desperate need of a quick pick-me-up after a long weekend spent indulging in an extra day of R&R, we’re here for you. So much so that we’ve tapped comedian Kelly Hudson (best known for her short film, Tond, to provide us all with a few extra LOLs on this lovely Tuesday morning. The funny lady stopped by the Allure office to test-drive a few crazy, cooky, and straight-up weird beauty products, and, lucky for you, we caught the whole thing on camera. Just try watching the full clip without cracking a smile. We dare you.
Her first product to review? A small sparkly plastic cup, called the Cellu-Cup, which claims to help users rid their cellulite. (Ed note: By now, you should know that you can’t actually get rid of your cellulite, but you can certainly diminish the appearance of stretch marks with certain products, especially those made with caffeine.) “This is so crazy, I still have no clue how to use this,” Hudson says to the camera. “There are no pictures [with the instructions]! Hold it firmly and just shove it against…what? Where?” Not surprisingly, Hudson rated this confusing tool a measly one out of ten.
Next up, the comedian tried out a stretchy treatment called the Joly Full Face Style Anti-Wrinkle Face Slimming Cheek Mask. “This looks like a cool, futuristic shirt for a doll,” she jokes, as she attempts to put it on…her arm. In case you couldn’t tell by its small size, the mask, which looks like Spandex for—you guessed it—a doll, is meant to be worn on the face. “It’s like a bra for your neck. Am I beautiful now?” (Yes, Hudson, always.)
