Underworld star Kate Beckinsale praised a highly unusual facial practice that involves cloned foreskins in a now-deleted Instagram post.
This past Saturday, the actress took to Instagram to praise the practice.
Beckinsale wrote, “After a long flight I do like to lie down and be covered in a mask of liquified cloned foreskins-frankly who doesn’t? Thank you @georgialouisesk for an amazing facial. I especially liked you reassuring me it would be “light on penis” as it was my first time x.”

The facial uses liquefied cloned foreskins from infants of South Korean descent. Celebrity Facialist Georgia Louise, who Beckinsale praised in her Instagram post describes the facial on her website:
“The facial includes a cleanse, followed by an intensive yet painless TCA peel, micro-needling with stemcell application followed [by] an electrifying galvanic alginate mask to calm, hydrate and cool the skin,”… “The Serum? It’s a cocktail formula (Epidermal Growth Factor). EGF is derived from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast cells – which help to generate collagen and elastin, to tighten and firm the skin. This process allows the active ingredients to be transported deep in the skin by creating temporary micro- channel.”
The Edmonton Sun reports the foreskins come from South Korea and describe just how the facial is supposed to work:
“The ‘penis facial’ works by using a serum made from stem cells cultivated from the foreskins of Korean babies. These cells, which are thought to activate aging cells, help to boost collagen production, thereby helping wrinkles and fine lines to disappear.
As Korea has a custom of circumcising their young male infants, they have a large supply of foreskins and also numerous stem cell banks, which are then used to export the cells worldwide.”
Kate Beckinsale isn’t the only Hollywood actress who is getting foreskin facials. In an interview with Vogue Austraila via Daily Mail.com Cate Blanchett opened up about how her and fellow actress Sandra Bullock both have used this service from Georgia Louise:
“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.”
But it doesn’t stop there. Other stars like Spider-Man’s Emma Stone also had high praises for this treatment according to Georgia Louise’s website: “Georgia is a miracle worker.”
Katy Perry also had a high review for the beautician: “I love Georgia’s Facials!”
What do you think? This seems like something straight out of Death Becomes Her. If you haven’t seen the film it stars Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep. Their characters go to to supernatural lengths in order to maintain their respective beauties. But this is so much grosser. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
