Weirdest Japanese Beauty Tools

A few days back Some weeks ago (see how long I've had this in my drafts?), Jay Sean posted a photo of a Japanese beauty tool in Facebook:
He wrote: "so apparently this "invention" is supposed to give you a bigger "smile". First of all, she doesn't seem to be smiling in the slightest. Crying would be a more appropriate description of her face. Secondly- i would argue that this "invention" is goin to be misused to come in handy for "other things." "
Okay, you didn't have to say it out loud, dawg! 
This MOUTH claims to fight wrinkles around your eyes and help shape the overall look of your face.
Then typical me googled more Japanese beauty tools, mainly to laugh at them, and I found a few more weird, but interesting, beauty tools.
Please Note: All pics & descriptions are copied from a website ~ www.japantrendshop.com. 

Searching for that youthful look? Forget expensive surgery or dangerous therapies! Japan has the answer and it is as simple as it is, well, unusual. Just pop the colorful Pupeko gently into your mouth, clench your jaw and breath in and out. This will then start training and tightening your cheek and jaw muscles, helping to offset the signs of aging and bringing a fresher, youthful look back again to your cheeks!


Push up that nose of yours to create the perfect profile with this handy Beauty Lift High Nose, a beauty gadget that applies gentle electric vibrations from the bottom, side and front. Just slip it on and turn on the switch on the front of the frame. While the supports hold your nose in place the buzzing will help shape your nose into just that little bit firmer and higher. All you need is three minutes once a day and you (and everyone else) will soon notice the difference!
The Beauty Nose is designed to firm and tighter your nose, giving you the high profile you've always desired. Adjustable to two degrees of hardness, the clip puts gentle pressure on four nose bones in order to align your nose the way you want it.

Hana Tsun Nose Straightener- "Hana" means nose in Japanese, while "tsun" means to perk or stick up, just like a nose should (physically, not metaphorically!). After slipping this clip gently into your nostrils, the supports on either side will help balance and push up the bones and contours of your nose, so it has an overall sharper, straighter shape, less round and more graceful. 
Great for wearing at home or in the bath, daily use will result in clear effects soon becoming visible and eventually a "smaller" face (that's what "Kogao" means). The double layer of nylon and polychloroprene will trap heat and work on those smile lines or laugh lines that we all hate. In pink and gray, the tight belt may take a little getting used to but you will soon be smiling, all while knowing you can now combat the aftereffects of laughter and fun.


"Bye-bye face jiggle" declare the makers of this product. But how is that possible? Well, just wear the Parts Beauty Face Belt for just thirty minutes per day and retain a tighter jaw line. Japanese beauty customarily favors a face that is small in proportion to the rest of the body, and this is one way to achieve or maintain this asset. Easy to wear and totally painless, the belt will apply gradual pressure to combat sag and slack along your jaw and cheeks.


Do they work? They probably do. I believe exercises &  massage do help alter the shape of things, and if there are tools to help make it less tedious, why not?
For example:
  • If you want to be taller- Stretch. Believe me, had I known to do yoga in my teens, I would probably be at least 2 inches taller now.
  • If you want a longer nose- Massage & pull the tip everyday. 
  • If you want a shorter nose- Push it in everyday. I do this.
  • If you want an thinner face shape- Massage it to the shape you want regularly.

From the tools above, I think the big lips are cray cray. But I think the nose and face belts would work with regular use. I'm not saying they'll really work, I'm only saying they could work. I don't know.

***Please take this for what it is. I'm only sharing fun(ny) beauty-related stuff, and not encouraging people to alter their face shapes.

So how do you feel about these tools? Do you think they work or are just plain hilarious? =D

  3. I have seen youtube videos where the face belt has been reviewed! Said to work but of course you also have massage your face everyday together with it :D And pulling the nose really works :D I had a very flat nose while growing up, but with regular pulling it is atleast not that flat :D

  6. Ah the Japanese, everything they do always verges on the extreme. The nose things made me cringe but the face belts don't seem too bad. And lol at Jay Sean saying the "mouth" could be used for 'other things', hahaa ^_^

  7. Really interesting tools. I'm not sure if they'd work but I'm sure lots of people buy them! On the flip side, I'm sure some beauty tools in Western culture are considered strange in Asian cultures. With that said, my dad TOTALLY did the nose pull thing on me in the hopes that I'd have a higher nose - and I kind of think it worked! lol

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
