Watch: Would you try a snail facial?

As in, actual live snails.

Buzzfeed asked Diana Terranova to subject a group of friends to a gentle snail facial.

Terranova explained why they were trying snail facials.

"Believe it or not, snail enzyme facials are all the rage in Asia".

The little snails with brightly decorated shells were placed over the faces and chests of the volunteers.

"The types of snail used are common garden snails".

The ladies were very giggly during the session, leading a stern admonishing from Terranova.

"I should tell you that insects don't like large vibrations".

When they continued to giggle, she added "You know you'd be dead in a horror movie, right?"

Some of the ladies were happy with the results of the facial, saying "My face definitely feels tighter".

The men weren't so easily swayed, with one insisting "it's not for me! It's just not for me".
