"The notion of having snail slime all over your face isn’t terribly appealing, so it just goes to show what a hint of celebrity interest can do for an unconventional beauty treatment.
Sales of a new face cream containing the slime have almost tripled in the UK in just two months.
Earlier this year, friends of 34-year-old Katie Holmes, ex-wife of Tom Cruise, said she used just such a product.
Health food chain Holland and Barrett began stocking a version of the cream in 50 stores in June and then in all 700 of its branches a month ago. In that time sales have risen 189 per cent.
Snail Gel, which costs £19.99 for a 50ml pot, contains mucus secreted by the snails which is said to regenerate and repair the skin.
Its arrival follows that of snail slime facials. They involve having specially farmed creatures slither up and down your face and were launched at a beauty salon in Britain last month.
The £50 treatment was added to the menu at Simply Divine salon in Corby, Northamptonshire, having been pioneered in Japan.
Owner Diane Gower claims clients have been overwhelmed by the results. By using the cream, women can see if the slime works for them without going to a salon."
