Cate Blanchett Said She Got a 'Penis Facial' with Sandra Bullock

Thursday Mar 15, 2018

In a new interview with Vogue Australia, actress Cate Blanchett revealed she and her "Ocean's 8" costar Sandra Bullock got a "penis facial" while in New York City - and she explained exactly what the beauty treatment is.

"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," Blanchett said. "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."

According to her website, Louise's facial "includes a cleanse, followed by an intensive TCA peel, micro-needling machine and an electrifying mask to calm the skin, followed by her 'secret box' of EGF serum (Epidermal Growth Factor)." That serum is "derived from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast taken from Korean newborn baby foreskin - which helps to generate collagen and elastin."

Louise also spoke with People magazine about the treatment.

"It started last year when Sandra Bullock was filming in NYC and came to see me for a deep cleansing and long-lasting facial glow," she said. "I wanted to give her something that would transform her skin without the need to undergo lasers, so I loaded up her bespoke facial with something that would give her long-lasting results.

"Within weeks her make-up artist, Whitney, and cast mates wanted to know the cause of her amazing, glowing skin ... and from that moment onwards the Hollywood EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) Facial was born!" Louise added.

She also explained how the treatment got that naughty nickname.

"I am always very mindful to explain radical serums and potions that I carry in my back bar so I always explain that EGF is derived from newborn baby foreskin, from which cells were taken and then cloned in a laboratory," Louise told People. "I remember the time when I used placenta from a pig on a client that was vegan and that didn't end so well."

And if you want your own penis facial, it'll cost you a cool $650 at Georgia Louise Atelier in New York City, the magazine notes.

"I have text threads which would blow your mind from celebs, asking for the 'penis treatment' all the time now," Louise said.
