Snooki Exfoliates with Kitty Litter

Wow. Uh, I sort of told the whole story in that headline. Snooki rubs kitty litter on her face as part of her beauty regime.

Oh, I could give you guys the priceless excerpt from Conan‘s show where we learn this lovely little tidbit:

Conan: “You give some very strange beauty tips in here. In this book, you say it’s acceptable to use cat litter–”

Snooki: “Clean cat litter.”

Conan: “Yes. I thought that would go without saying.”

Snooki: “Just making sure.”

Conan: “…On your face. As what? As an exfoliant?

Snooki: “Yeah, well, I definitely, um, like to Google a lot. And I don’t like to spend a lot of money on, like, spa treatments, just because I’m, like, a cheapo. So I Googled what else I could use that’s, like, not so expensive, and it was… cat litter.”

Conan asks, “Isn’t cat litter, like, a strong chemical?” and Snooki looks as though this would never occur to her. She shrugs and says, “I haven’t broke out at all yet,” and Conan quips, “I guess that’s good enough for the FDA.”

You know, I knew that Snooki was a little off, that she had some unconventional beliefs and all, but I think this one takes the cake. I’ll buy that she actually thinks she could be on The Office and, even though it causes me so much pain in my soul, I’ll accept that she doesn’t know who JK Rowling and Maya Angelou are, but this? Kitty litter on the face?* I can’t, Snickers, I just can’t.

*I did try to pull a Snooki and Google this to see if it was an actual thing, and all I could find out was that Christie Brinkley uses kitty litter in a pinch. That still doesn’t make it ok.

  • Her logic is sound.

    Actually, regular cat litter (“kitty litter”) is made from Fuller’s Earth. It IS a kind of clay used in expensive spa treatments.

    (Mixed with orange peel and a little oatmeal into a paste.)

    Now, you have to use THAT kind and not the clumping kind, which is made from quartz or Diatomaceous Earth! That would grind your face off. :/
