In the midst of promoting Giorgio Armani’s perfume, Sì Passione, Cate Blanchett paused to share some important information about how she and Ocean’s Eight co-star Sandra Bullock get their enviable, glowy skin.
“Sandy Bullock and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facial and it’s something — I don’t know what it is, or whether it’s just ’cause it smells a bit like sperm — there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial,” she told Vogue Australia.
The actual name of the facial is the Hollywood EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) Facial, which the Upper East Side facialist created specifically for Bullock while she was filming in the city last year. The sperm smell that Blanchett described wasn’t too far off though. The serum used in the facial is actually derived from cells taken from the freshly removed foreskin of newborn babies in Korea.
